Tonight I was stoked like everyone else. I was ready to see the Jets finally take a leap over the Patriots in the division. And wow, who wouldn't think this. All the "experts" on all the networks picked us, New England has been stumbling and our offense was finally up off the ground. The hype for this game was huge as it always it, with both the NFL and NBC promoting it as a 12 round, knock down fight. I dawned my green today and couldn't wait to go to bed tonight with a smile on my face. I'm sure we all did, we took to the hype like fish to a big worm.
I just wish I looked the schedule one more time to remind myself of the truth.
Out of the five wins we have three are against teams with losing records. The other two are just one game above .500, and one these teams we got extremely lucky with (Dallas). We have not beaten a playoff team. Three of our four losses come against playoff teams and one who will most likely be one this year (Oakland).
I love my Jets. Me posting this doesn't make me a non-fan. However, unless this team has something sleeping that I cannot see, it is painfully obvious that we do NOT have the personnel to hang with the real dogs in this league.
