As far as the haters go, why would 2 losses against elite teams (HOU, SF) justify calling out the optimists or demanding everyone in the Jets organization be fired? Even for me, it was tough to not jump off the ledge after the San Fran game.
At the same token, isn't this kind of how we all predicted the season would go?
Going back to the prediction or schedule threads, everyone knew that the first chunk of the schedule was going to be brutal (SF, HOU, @NE, @PIT to name a few) while the back end was going to be easier (ARI, @JAC, SD, etc.). Back in the summer, 3-5 record after eight games seemed like a very realistic possibility.
FWIW, I try to be objective and admittedly tend to see the silver lining at times, but I knew that the Jets this year would be a 7-9 or 8-8 team. It's certainly going that way. Now what kind of 7-9/8-8 team we would be, we can slice that one any way we'd like.
