So how is it possible the Jets are actually closing in on .500, perhaps even better? What is the #1 reason the Jets, with all these apparent problems, are winning games? I understand 6-7 isn't exactly successful, but based on what most people -- on this board, on TV/radio, experts, etc. -- think of them, the Jets should have no more than 2 wins. So how do they have 6 Ws?
I think the talent level is below average in the league, but the Jets do have some players, particularly on the O Line and defense. And I actually think the Jets are coached better than most of us believe and they play hard for Rex -- usually.
This is why the Jets have 5 of their 6 wins
Bills are not good
Dolphins kicker had a bad day
Rams are not good
Arizona had the worst QB in the history of the NFL playing for them
Jacksonville is terrible.
The Jets have one quality win. They beat a very good Colts team when Sanchez played mistake free, they ran the ball well, and the D was stout.
