Jets Playoffs?

I think any fan can honestly say this was a rough 5 days to be a Jets fan. Last Sunday losing to the Patriots in our house then going to Denver and losing to Tebow. Jets are sitting at 5-5 and may or may not be in the post season this year. Looking at the schedule though tells a promising story to end the year. The team they have now and how they play 4 easy wins and 2 questionable games. At 9-7 to end the year there is a good shot of getting into the playoffs. Bills, Chiefs, Redskins and Dolphins are all teams the Jets SHOULD beat. I capitalize should because we never know what team is going to show up for those games. All those teams I named excluding the Bills have a losing record and haven’t shown much this season. With that said, the way the Jets have been playing these are no easy win games to say the least. Every single one of these teams could put up a fight and pull off the upset on us. The two questionable games I see coming up are the Eagles and Giants. Eagles are a good team that has come up big lately and has shown promise. Vick could be the X factor for that game and could easily burn us. Giants I think are a sick team and want to prove they are New York’s team. They have a potent offense and a pass rush that could rattle Sanchez. I said it before I think a 4-2 record down the stretch COULD be good enough for a playoff berth. On the other hand it is the Jets and this year we never know what team is going to show up for the games.

Jets vs Patriots

So last night I was at the Jets Patriots game. Well well where should I even begin to start? Well first and for most that was beyond pathetic to have to sit through. The offense had ONE good drive, which was our opening one. They drove down and of course missed a field goal to the left. That was the bright spot of our game last night. The offense had no momentum to speak of. The play calling was horrible against the WORST DEFENSE in the whole league. They came into the game ranked 32nd in the league and the Jets made them look like a top 5 defense last night. The defense was crap too. They got NO pressure on Brady which is what you have to do to beat him. They only had one true sack in the end zone for a safety. Brady lost a fumble and recovered in at the line so I’m not sure if that is going to go down as a sack or not. No turnovers for the Jets what so ever throughout the game. When Brady went into the no huddle the defense was lost and didn’t know how to defend it and Brady picked them apart the whole way to the endzone. Rex wanted us fans in the stadium to be loud and be the 12th man for them. Well Rex we all showed up and it was pure madness in the stadium. Where the hell was the team to work off the crowd? You have preached to have a home playoff game yet you can’t beat a division team!! I have been a fan of the team since birth and I’m embarrassed to represent the team. You want a home game you need to get the team in check big time. Sanchez is not the one to blame for last night’s loss. He made a few bad throws but he wasn’t on the defense that blew it. Sanchez was NOT on the special team that dropped the ball on our own 20. Shotty once again blew it against a quality team. He can’t call a game to save him. Something on offense works and he drops it after it works and we never see it again. No I’m not some bandwagon fan so if you say that about me I don’t want to hear it. I am just annoyed about how we performed. This Thursday we play the Broncos in Denver and we need a big game. A win by at least 14 points or more will bring the team back to having pride. We can’t allow this game to be tight and come down to a few key plays.
