Seattle Seahawks sent the New York Jets to their worst start since 2007 with a 28-7 win on Sunday.
The Jets made backup outside linebacker Aaron Maybin inactive.
Mark Sanchez remembers those meetings at USC when Pete Carroll made sure to mention that the Trojans would be facing a former coach at a new school and just how important winning that game was to the head coach.
The Jets need to play their best game of the season in Seattle tomorrow. Many fans have already written this team off after the first half of the season, and their 3-5 record couldn’t be more unimpressive.
The Jets could not manage any offense that day and lost, 13-3. The Seahawks — and their stadium and fans — had a lot to do with it.
Rex Ryan started the tradition of tongue teasers, and actually backed it up with consecutive trips to the AFC title game. Now it’s noise.
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.
