Have you been sleeping good lately?
Some of us are not surprised by the current state of the Jets because we saw it coming. Unlike 90% of my Jets friends here, I am well past the shock-and-awe phase of our current dilemma.
Things went south for this team in mid-2011 when four things occurred:
1. The defense started sucking.
2. The offensive line fell apart.
3. Tomlinson and Burress tired out.
4. The running game collapsed.
And if there's a defining moment in time that ended the Rex Ryan Jets, it occurred in Week 10 last year at home against the Patriots. Going into that game, the Jets were 5-3 and Ryan had boasted about how this was the time we were finally going to pass the Patriots and take control of the division. How it was "our time" and the team was going to "step up", all that crap. And, as usual, we got blown out.
Going into that game, we were on a 25-11 streak. Since that game, the Jets are 6-11.
If Mark Sanchez was a good NFL quarterback when he had the right surrounding cast, it stands to reason he can be again once it's rebuilt. Everyone can see that we have terrible receivers, no running game, and a mediocre offensive line. The defense, the coaching, all brutal too. That's no way to win in the NFL.
