Is this "Disastrous" Season Being Overplayed?
Think about it. If you looked at the schedule before the season, which games would you have expected this team to win, and which would you have chalked up as a loss? Especially if you were to find out that Revis and Holmes would both be IR'd by week 4?
I would have expected to beat Buffalo and Indy at home, beat the Rams and maybe sweep the Dolphins, although splitting with them would not have been a shock. Certainly would not expect to beat the Steelers in their home opener,the Seahawks on the road, as well as three Super Bowl contenders, Houston, SF & New England. And I would expect to win at least 4 out of the last 5 remaining games, which still might happen.
Granted, the Jets have lost more blowouts than usual but, on the other hand, 3 out of their 4 wins have been fairly one-sided.
Needless to say, a more talented version of the Jets (e.g. the 2010 team) should have won a couple more on this schedule and, obviously, a serious effort to upgrade the talent at several positions during the off-season is a must. But I don't think people should be so shocked at the 4-7 record to date.
