If you’re a Jets fan who’s already splattered at the bottom of a cliff, I wouldn’t blame you. I swan dived off that shit face fucking first yesterday. I’m more concerned about this team from a talent and personnel point of view, because literally every person on the field sucks now. But, at the end of Week 4, here are the cold, hard indisputable facts:
The Jets are 2-2 with 2 AFC East wins tied for first place. Same record as New England and Buffalo. And thats all that matters right now. I think you can pencil in another massacre against the Texans next week. Should win the following week against the Colts. Lose to New England week 7. The big game for me is gonna be week 8 hosting Miami. I can no longer call that a game the Jets “should win.” But if they do they’ll be sitting at 4-4 heading into the Bye. Not like being a .500 team at the half way point is anything to puff your chest up about, but I’m just saying that if the next 4 games play out the way I think they probably should and will, the Jets are still in a manageable situation despite some truly, genuinely awful moments throughout the first quarter of the season.
Put looking at a schedule and penciling games is not the way football works. We all know that, and its especially true with the Jets. I’m not worried about matchups and the schedule, I’m worried about the team on the field. Mark Sanchez is done. Its probably 50% his fault, 50% the organization’s fault. Completely mishandled him in every way possible. No matter how you cut it, he plays like a guy whos scared and who feels he doesn’t have his team’s support. Zero running game, no threat in the air. Defense is old and flat out terrible without Revis. I’m not gonna sit here and re-hash everything I said in yesterday’s blog. Bottom line is, if you actually analyze the Jets as a team – not their schedule or their current standings – they’re fucked.
PS – People today are comparing the Jets situation to the Giants since Eli and company at the bottom of the NFC east with 2 division losses. While its true the Giants have put themselves in a bit of a predicament with their division play, to compare these two teams based on the standings after week 4 is laughable. There is no comparison. Watching Sanchez and the Jets struggle to amass 200 yards while Rex and the defense give up 500 a game versus Eli and that high octane offense slinging the ball all over while JPP, Tuck, and Osi are terrorizing quarterbacks – its like you’re watching 2 different sports.
