Gloom & Doom a media creation
While many other NFL teams are trying to figure out what went wrong, Bills, chiefs, panthers, chargers, raiders, cards, and many more, the only thing we hear in the media is how bad the Jets situation is?
The Jets that had one if not the most difficult schedules in the league, playing with what we now know is the worst QB in the league.
The same Jets that lost both their best offensive player & their best defensive player for the season.
The Jets that never had their TE healthy for the season.
The Jets that started a raw rookie at WR
The Jets with 3 aging slow LBs .
But these same Jets were still in the playoff picture with 3 games left.
Has Tannenbaum screwed the pooch & made numerous mistakes with this team?
But, did anyone come into this season seeing a Superbowl team?
Instead of talking about what we don't have, let's look at what we do have.
The Jets have the 5th ranked Oline in the league this year.
Think about that
With the worst ranked QB they are still ranked 5th
The Cowboys, Eagles, & Bears could only be so lucky
The Jets have a trio of young defensive players that will anchor the front for years in Wilk, Coples & Ellis, even Harrison showed something before getting injured.
Jeremy Kerley has been a diamond in the rough & will be extremely versatile with Holmes next year, especially if we keep Bray for a year to play the big receiver spot.
Bilal Powell has proven to be an all around backup similar to What Kevin Faulk did for the Pats, that spinning run last week sealed it for me with that similarity.
Cumberland has actually made Keller expendable, no way we Give big money to Keller when we can get the same thing from Cumberland for much less.
So, while the media has buried the Jets for the next 10 years, face it, the Jets are news & bashing them has become the norm. Meanwhile a team like the Lions with more talent are underachieving worse than us.
Did the Jets really underachieve?
The QB certainly did & that's your most important position.
We have another draft with most of our picks. Pass rushing LBs are numerous this year.
We have more of a base to work from than a lot of teams.
I just hope Woody is smart enough to hire the right people to straighten out the perception of the Jets, which started with Rex running his mouth & Tannenbaum proving on Hardknocks that he's an egotistic accountant that has no clue how to build a team.
We are all still here.
