We are in week 5. Not week 12! We don't know how things will turn out. Now I don't expect us to be good, but when you consider our best WR and best defensive player are both out for the year, that's to be expected. But you don't what will happen. Maybe this is Stephen Hill's chance to develop. Maybe Chaz Schillens steps up. Maybe Coples gets involved soon and plays effectively. Not expecting it, but we don't know that.
And what really bothers me, is some of the incredibly ridiculous and egregious statements made on here. In the past week these are some of the statements I've heard...
- Luck is one of the best QB's in the league
- Cleveland's offense looks like Brady & co. compared to ours.
- Gabbert >>> Sanchez
- Tannehill >>> Sanchez
- Bradford >>> Sanchez
- Jeff Fisher is a good HC
- Teams like Miami, KC, Buffalo, etc have better futures than us, despite the fact that they are just as bad/worse than us and have worse management than us.
- Hire Bill Polian
- Hire Scott Pioli
I could go on and on. But quite frankly these are some of the dumbest statements I have read. It's one thing to bash our team, it's a totally different thing to grasp at straws and try to make crappy players/teams look better in order to downplay the Jets. C'mon, you guys are better than that.
And no, I'm not a homer. I have my fair share of complaints about this team too, but I'm not going to take it to levels that you are. Statements like those above are definitely reaches. Dhalsim-like reaches.
Bottom line, let's see what happens first before going on suicide watch.
Well, with the back to back AFC CG appearances, the fanbase got a bit spoiled and expected sustained success. The Jets fall back to being a mediocre team that cannot compete with the elite teams has been a tough pill for a lot of us to swallow. Plus, couple that with a lot of missed draft picks recently and Sanchez's regression to almost embarrassing levels and people are rightfully annoyed. True, this team may find a way to 7 or 8 wins, but they are not a threat to win the Super Bowl as it stands with this roster (and maybe even with this coach and QB). The thought of needing to go out and find another franchise QB blows. It just does. Not to mention, the team has played so poorly at times this year that we are actually expecting to not even be competitive with a good team tonight. Think about that, a few years ago we could beat teams like this and now prevailing wisdom is we cannot even hang on the same field with an elite team. That bothers me....
