Looking no further than New England, take a look at how someone who was once considered the best defensive Cordinator in the NFL now runs an airshow that would give Don Coryell a run for the money. We need to give up on this crazy defensive strategy that only worked in 1985 and join the rest of the league in the new millennium.
The last month we played the worst football we've played since Chad Pennington was last hurt in 2005. So the fact that we are in the playoff picture is just a testament to how weak the NFL is, not how good the New York Jets are.
Many people are rooting for a win this week so they can justify spending time at the stadium next week. Smart people are rooting for a loss this week so that false hope isn't created and we don't waste another year with the current regime. Bill Belichick and Tom Brady are just a few years away from being gone, finally, and all that matters is that on the day that they retire we are ready to make a run at a division title.
2012 isn't happening. 2015 might. We need to focus on the future, not cling onto the past. A past, by the way, that wasn't so special.
If any of you season ticket holders who want the Jets to tank the rest of the season, let me know if you want to dump your Jets-Chargers tickets. I'm in the market for 3 of them.
If all you wanted was a Championship, and you're willing to root against the Jets to see (as you believe) that come to pass.....it begs the question, why then are you not rooting against Sanchez, i.e. rooting for sanchez to fail again, throw three picks, and be benched, then cut, this offseason?
If your argument is that he cannot be, that too rings hollow. There is as little chance of Rex being fired at say, 8-8 this year, as there is of Sanchez being cut. No owner, and certainly not Woody, is going to cut a head coach who has yet to post a single losing season, and whose most recent excuse/rationalization for dissapointment is a combination of lost #1's on O and D in Revis and Holmes, and a cast of young developing players on Defense and at skill positions like WR and RB.
You've painted yourself into a corner. You simply cannot reconcile "all I want is a Championship" with your extensive defense of Sanchez as the Jets #1 QB. Those two things are mutually exclusive.
The last month, the primary cause of our failure, like the past four years, is the limitations of Mark Sanchez, and his penchant for turnovers, 3-and-outs and his inabillity to sustain scoring drives.The last month we played the worst football we've played since Chad Pennington was last hurt in 2005. So the fact that we are in the playoff picture is just a testament to how weak the NFL is, not how good the New York Jets are.
Yet you have been his biggest supporter at J.I. And rather than root for a change at QB, you root to fire a Coach without a single losing season, and who has been the impetus for a Top 10 Defense every year this far.
I root for a win because I'm a Jets Fan, so I root for the Jets to win and move on.Many people are rooting for a win this week so they can justify spending time at the stadium next week. Smart people are rooting for a loss this week so that false hope isn't created and we don't waste another year with the current regime.
It really is as simple as that.
"We" don't need to do anything, because "we" do not make make these decisions. "We" are not involved in player personal, coaching or playing.2012 isn't happening. 2015 might. We need to focus on the future, not cling onto the past. A past, by the way, that wasn't so special.
"We" are fans, and we have the choice to do one thing or another.
We can root for our team.
Or we can root against our team.
You have chosen to root against our team, for a rather cloudy possible future you are ill able to define, and even less able to ensure occurs. You root against us, because of a fantasy where Woody hired (who?) some mythical coach you cannot name who is a sure thing to lead a title run, and a sure thing to convert Sanchez from the total abject failure he is today into a title-worthy QB. You root against us, based not in any facts, but on pure hope and fantasy.
Yet you also dismiss us who have hope and fantasy for THIS regime, THIS Coach and THIS year, a year we are still not out of it, and a run is still possible (even if highly HIGHLY doubtful).
Now, I'm well aware of why you post what you post, and I'm glad to give you the attention you clearly need here at J.I.
Have a great day SAR.

Root for the truth.
Root for the exposure of those who need to be exposed (yet again) - and the hard work of those around them - to make it that much easier to identify the weak links.
Root for this team to play as exactly who they are. No fluke wins, no contrived loses. Just the truth.

The Jets are not a good football team. So they are not ending the season on a 5 game winning streak. I think they will lose tonight and then we can get down to the real issue which is Tanny and Rex.
I respect the guys that are talking about playoffs. but this is not a playoff team and they wont make it.
Do you even want to make the playoffs? Be honest
"To be sincerely honest part of me hops we lose out ; get the best draft pick we possibly can....... with the dreadful defense ; anemic run game caused by an abysmal O-line..... I just don't see any chance in hell of doing anything in the playoffs."
"I have to agree as well. My philosophy is if we don't win the superbowl there is no reason to be in the playoffs. Second, third or fourth Best gets u nothing but a higher draft Pick. We aren't playing together as a team. And our injuries are mounting."
"I've thrown the towel in for this season. I don't have the time to lose sleep over this team."
OH WAIT THATS FROM THE GIANTS MESSAGE BOARD LAST YEAR...SORRY
This is football and anything can happen, even a Ass Fumble... while I do not high hopes, the Jets did rebound from a 45-3 beat down to make the playoff run in Jan 2011.
I dunno about you guys, but I've been a Jets fan long enough to know what's going to happen:
Jets beat Tennessee.
Pittsburgh beats Cinci.
Hype engine begins.
Jets beat San Diego.
Hype engine goes nuts. NY media going crazy.
Pittsburgh loses to Cleveland.
Cinci loses to Baltimore.
Jets get destroyed by Buffalo's CJ Spiller, the first top flight talent they have faced since Brady on Thanksgiving.
This is how Jets fandom works guys.
Needless to say, by some miracle, the Steelers go on to win the Super Bowl..............
