Before you can go to the top you have to hit bottom
Like most Jet fans I thought the Giants played at a level that was beyond this current Jets team. While I am not ready to give up on the season it's obvious that this team has a hell of lot of work to do before they can compete with teams like the Giants and Packers.
Watching the Ravens this week I could not help but compare some of their problems with ours. If the Ravens had a better offense and QB they probably could have more rings.
What really bothers me is that the offensive problems this year are a continuation of the problems from last year. It leaves me wondering if Rex has a grasp of offensive strategy and is too ingrained in the defense. If this team continues to have offensive problems than obviously there are deeper issues here that we know about.
As for the OL I agree with other posters who say that his play has started to go down hill. Why Rex and Tanny dont address this is beyond me but Rex needs to stop worrying about being a players coach and call his players in for a comet to Jesus meeting when they underperform.
Obviously we do need help at WR as there isn't any WR who can stretch the field. Opposing teams will continue to bring their LB's in to stop the run while daring the Jets to throw the ball. Same as last year.
I wonder what the decision making is for draft picks? Is it driven by Rex or by Tanny and what is the philosophy behind the picks (i.e. offense vs. defense) and who is held accountable ?
The Patsies are also having their problem on offense but they have a proven SB QB and seem to be able to turn it as the season progresses. Remember that the Giants record last year was 9-7 and they ran the table in the playoffs. Don't throw in the towel yet. As always they will play exciting football and like Sanchez said it's a long season.
