So much for those high-powered Jets. Or those creaky Pittsburgh Steelers.
Jets running back Shonn Greene returned to Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the third quarter after leaving with a head injury in the first half.
It would be easy for the Jets and their fans to get way ahead of themselves right now. Who can really blame them? They just spat in the eye of the intelligentsia. But they need to chill for the black and gold await — and they’re annoyed.
On Sunday, Rex Ryan’s clown car looked more like a Cadillac. With bulldozer hydraulics. So much for preseason scoring stats.
The Jets dominated the Buffalo Bills in their regular season opener as they won 48-28.
Contrary to popular belief, Rex Ryan will be the Jets’ head coach for a long time. It really shouldn’t even be a discussion.
“`Wow. How did this happen?’ Those were words that came out of his mouth,” Holmes told reporters on Wednesday.
Revis needs to play above himself, which means that he has to be better than the best. It is a tall order for the league’s best defensive player, but the fate of the Jets’ season rests on Revis being better than himself.
A crumbling offensive line in front of him, a subpar running game and receivers bobbling balls thrown directly to their chests. Still, No. 6 takes the blame. Welcome to Mark Sanchez’s world.
What if you are the New York Jets and you have two quarterbacks who are struggling and your receiving crew is unimpressive? You can’t try to keep up with Brees and Rodgers.
If you take into consideration the average Jets fan’s usual penchant for saying the sky is falling, Friday’s performance against the Bengals was a huge red flag. It wasn’t. In fact, it meant very little in the grand scheme of things.
Sanchez or Tebow? It just doesn’t matter! Because no matter who they pick, the Patriots are STILL the better team and this will be ANOTHER year without a Super Bowl!
The Jets need to face reality. If they hope to once again have the NFL’s most fearsome ball-control offense they should really consider getting Shonn Greene some help — like now.
After last year’s Super Bowl boasts and disappointing 8-8 finish, Jets coach Rex Ryan quit the guarantee-making business. But look who has taken the baton.
With the Jets, I have to deal with schizophrenia. Keep expectations low. Don’t invest your passion this year. It has never been as easy as it sounds.
