SNAP OUT OF IT!!!
This team is driving me nuts and not in a good way.
How shall I count these ways?
A 2-3 start/record and a three game losing streak isn’t totally insurmountable. It’s just the way it happened, and against the Patriots of all teams, that makes me upset.
After a loss like this, you just get the questions about “who is to blame?” The fact is, this was a team loss if there was any. At the end of the day, the Pats didn’t beat the Jets, the Jets beat themselves. Period, end of story.
Mark Sanchez’s game was reminiscent of the conference game last year against the Steelers, when he got his act together too little, too late. Stupid f’ing penalties. Brian Schottenheimer third-guessing himself. Prior to the game, there was news that WRs Plaxico Burress, Santonio Holmes and Derrick Mason complained about Schotty’s play calling. Of course, they all get on the defensive and deny, deny, deny afterwards.
Rex Ryan claims he still has faith in this team, and you know what, I do too. It’s not unrealistic to lose three in a row: we were just hoping they wouldn’t have done that so early in the season.
Again, it just sucks it was against the HATEtriots. Oh, and there was some serious home-cooking going on with the officiating there (and basically readjustments of jock straps by the officials of certain Patriot players…I know I was not alone in this, and this is not “Bitter Jets Fan” talking…it was for realz).
So now, we’ve got players trying to outplay, out-think and outdo each other. You know what I have to say about that?
SNAP OUT OF IT!!!!!
And quit pissin’ me off!
OK so here’s my conclusion: if you can’t blame Rex 100%, can’t blame Sanchez 100%, or Schotty, or defense or the offense…blame everyone.
I guess the good news, as Jon Presser pointed out to me on Twitter, is that they haven’t played their best ball yet…they’re trending upward. Blah blah blah. I guess I can take that with a grain of salt, especially playing the Dolphins at home next week as well, that can be a very good thing for the team, to beat a bad team. Perhaps they’ll take the week to sit in the corner and think about what they’ve done.
In the meantime, though, we’re having a full moon upon us, la bella luna, la pazza luna, and the Jets will be playing Monday night against Miami, in full moon territory.
Stranger things have happened. As long as the hope that Rex Ryan has for his team comes out, they’ll be okay.
They just need to snap out of it.
