I'm not even suggesting the Jets need all pro talent, they didn't lose all pro talent everywhere either, but they lost their starting calliber talent all year long at all 3 skill positions, it was a rotational line-up of available players every week, and this was after losing Revis and Holmes.
Again, it is a different situation than the ones used as examples in the articles.
The Jets fully healthy were were an 8-9 win team max and that may be generous. The Jets fully healthy barely have starters at any skill position on offense. Holmes and Keller are about it.
You look at the playoff teams and you see plenty of teams that have lost tons of starters and still made the playoffs. The Pats lost plenty of starters from significant stretches including Gronk, Hernandez, Mankins, and Vollmer. The Packers have been decimated by injuries this season. The Redskins lost Brian Orakpo and Adam Carriker early in the season and lost several other starters and key role players on defense over the course of the season. The Texans lost Brian Cushing early, Brooks Reed and Jonathan Joseph for long stretches, and several other players during the course of the season.
The Jets are not the only team dealing with significant injuries this year. Teams deal with big injuries every year. The good teams overcome them and the bad teams don't.
