It's times like these that I like to go full ďSame Old JetsĒ....
Ryan Fritzpatrick goes down to injury in game 3. Brad Smith comes in to lead the Bills to a 13-3 regular season record and the AFC East title.
Miami puts things together behind Matt Moore to clinch a wildcard spot at 9-7.
Patriots pick up the other AFC wildcard at 9-7. Not sure why it happens. Some type of Brady-esque off the field distraction occurs. A video emerges of he and his wife having group sex with half a dozen other female super models or something like that. Yet he sues and wins millions of dollars in damages. He holds a very public press conference and states "I will never, ever do anything like that again. The videotaping part, I mean. Of course I will still have the orgies. I'm Tom Brady." The jerk.
St Louis goes 14-2 behind a revitalized offense dubbed "The Greatest Show on Turf II" or possibly "The Take a Shot and Hammer" offense. The surprising aspect of it all though is that itís on the arm of Kellen Clemens.
Not surprisingly before all this embarrassing former Jets and division rival success stuff happens, the Jets manage to shoot themselves in the foot.
Sanchez gets hurt early. In the preseason or in one of the early games. So naturally it's Tebow time. Everyone jumps on the Tebow train. He wins a couple of games despite completing only 3 passes.
This is when things get ugly. Anonymous sources are quoted as saying that Sanchez getting hurt was a deliberate act. Someone missed a block on purpose or it was a deliberate hard hit in practice, something of that sort. The NFL is called in to investigate New Orleans style. Everyone hates the Jets so it doesn't go well for the team.
Even Tebow canít save the day. Defenses have adapted. He can barely gain a yard rushing anymore. The Jets finish the season 5-11, face stiff fines, penalties and lose draft picks. The team becomes the laughing stock of the league.
But on the positive side, Rex is still likable.
