[QUOTE=FreemanMC;3874665]Dude, you ought to work for NESN - pal around with Chris Collinsworth - are you getting a Brady jersey for Christmas?
My goodness, man, you're probably one of those guys who secretly pumps his fist under the table when you see the Patriots score, so everyone keeps believing you're really a Jets fan, when you'd rather see the Patriots win.
I mean, it's one thing to recognize he's good -- it's another to fall all over yourself with every other post telling us how unbelievably perfect everything New England is.[/QUOTE]

I find it kind of sad that threads like this are showing up before we have even nailed down a playoff spot officially. Every team has reasons why it should doubt its chances for the Super Bowl, even the mighty Pats. There isn't one team this year that defines dominance game-in, game-out. None. Bottom line is that the Jets have to play better than they have of late and find a zone. If they don't they'll get bounced.
I think the best way to look at the Jets right now is that they have nothing to lose and everything to gain. They're not as good as we thought they would be at the beginning of the season, but they are not as bad as their two lemons against the Pats and Dolphins. Enjoy each game as an opportunity, while knowing that the Jets could just as well come out flat. Ride the wave, don't get ahead of it.... :)
Sophomore QB could mess up, but he's proven pretty damn good under pressure. Main reason would be hurt D in the middle. Jenk in the middle up front and now Leonhard's injury leaving a huge gap in secondary's middle. Thank god for Harris holdin' sh*t down.

Main reason: Defense can't stop the underneath short passing game. Be it lack of pass rush or poor safety coverage, or both combined.
This is setup by the lack of offense and a tight game where the defense is going to be asked to make THE STOP but can't.
