The odor of losing continues to linger at 1 Jets Drive, and it’s going to take a monumental effort by everyone to air the place out. Guess what? Not gonna happen Sunday.
That’s it. We’re calling it. The old, boisterous, guarantee-making Jets are officially back.
At 3-5, the Jets look like long shots for a third playoff berth. Rex Ryan is embracing that challenge, and believes he has the team to make a strong run in the second half of the schedule.
The Jets must play nearly flawlessly to make the playoffs, but they should also play flawlessly for a coach who has never stopped believing in them.
Where the Jets want to be is in the playoffs, something safety LaRon Landry swore — literally — is still attainable for Gang Green.
Rex Ryan didn’t exactly lay out future plans, except to say there was nothing radical about them. That should be of great comfort to Jets fans because, you know, things are working so well these days.
“I know we’re not where we want to be,” said Ryan. “We’re not sniffing the playoffs, we’re not sniffing anything right now. But I want to get there. I’m excited about the prospects in front of us.”
As the Jets head into their bye week, you know what you can say about Gang Green’s playoff chances? Bye Bye!
Those NFL waters are deep and dangerous. Anyone who plunked down their hard-earned money on the 49ers last night will remember that “bad beat” for a long time.
Six weeks into the NFL season and this is what we know: that old cliche of “any given Sunday” has never been more accurate. Parity, now more than ever.
The Jets are not going to win the division, but they can take baby steps, and that will put them in contention for an AFC Wild Card spot. It looks hopeless right now, but the schedule makers have given them a chance to rise up out of the muck.
The final pass of the game sailed out of the end zone, saving the regular refs from the same type of call that brought the replacements to the height of unpopularity just three days earlier.
The arrogant NFL will not apologize for their blown calls and ruining of games.
Craig Carton has seen enough of the NFL’s replacement officials. He hasn’t seen enough of the league’s commissioner. And boy did he let Goodell know it.
With players still seething, fans pondering the possibility of turning off their TVs and even the President weighing in, it’s official: Overnight, the NFL’s replacement refs went from minor nuisance to staggering problem.
