    Bigger Disasters than our Jets

    If it makes anyone feel any better I would put all of these teams down as bigger disappointments than us yet we are bashed more than all of them put together:

    Kansas City
    Oakland
    San Diego
    Buffalo
    Philadelphia
    Detroit
    Carolina
    Arizona

    Anyone have any thoughts on this?

    The teams in Bold definitely had high hopes for this season. Just goes to show you that every year is a new year and what you did last year or in the off season doesnt mean anything until you actually play the games.

    Honestly I believe most people were picking the Jets to do bad this year so I dont see why the media is giving us a hard time.

    Don't you know The Jets have

    1. The worst owner
    2. The worst GM
    3. The worst Coach
    4. The worst QB
    5. The worst RB's
    6. The worst WR's
    7. The worst TE's
    8. The worst LB's in the NFL

    Now, if we happen to run the table, or make it to 8-8 to finish the season in a high note, how can The Jets do this with the trash we have leading, and playing for this team?

    I was actually thinking of this yesterday on my way home.

    The reasons for the constant attention:

    Rex
    NY
    Tebow
    Random player comments
    Namath

    I always blame Namath and always will. I love the guy, was lucky enough to see him play. But, his brash in your face attitude rubbed many the wrong way and the target has been on the Jets back ever since.
    Rex has now kept that torch rolling.

    I don't care about the other teams. Because they suck or make bad decisions it doesn't make the jets plight better.

    Just as I didn't care about all the other QB's in the league when the Sandefenders would trot out their names to try and make 'Mark' look better.

    ****ty lousy teams look for worse teams to make themselves feel better.

    Winners and prospective champions look at themselves with the most critical eye and try to get better to the point of winning.

    Dont know how New Orleans could possibly be left off of this list?
    Dallas too.

    We are in good (vast) company this year...

    Dallas has a better record than us and the Saints had all the bountygate stuff and their HC suspended, so I didn't expect them to be a good team

    So, we had Revis & Holmes get hurt.
    All are just excuses for good teams going bad.

    We're 5-7 after losing our best player (Revis) and our best WR (Holmes). Yet media has a consensus that Rex should be fired.

    3 words: Rex and Tebow


    Tebow is the most divisive figure in sports and Rex is universally hated by the media b/c he says the f-word and says bold things to motivate his players.
