And they did it with a patchwork WR unit, and without the primary TE.
I get there are no moral victories, losing is losing, but the media hacks, the clowns at ESPN, and any other news outlet worked overtime to spew the Jets as a joke, and gave the team no chance last night, and the Jets stayed right with one of the top teams in football and did it with an injury depleted roster. I saw a team that was prepared from a game planning standpoint, that made adjustments in-game, there were still mistakes, mental errors, the TO's due to sub packages, but that is all to be expected when the team has had so much turnover each week on the active 46 with so many injuries.
The one thing I wanted to see was a team that played hard, that showed heart, and wanted to show the nation that they aren't giving up on the season despite the injuries and responded to the game last week, and especially a team that responded to Ryan and the preparation going into last night's game, I saw that, and for that, I was happy. Losing still sucks, and there is still more work to do, obviously with many of the new players they are integrating into the roles on the team.
