After the Thanksgiving Night’s debacle, coach Rex Ryan was asked if he expects to be back next season. “I do”, he said. “And I think our team will play a heckuva lot better, and I don’t think that anybody will ask that question by the time the year’s over.” Eh, Rex, you just got through being humiliated by one of your divisional rivals in front of 40 million people in a 49-19 blowout. You have lost 4 out of your last 5 games and are 2-6 over your last 8. In your last four games you have been outscored 120-62! We don’t know what you’re smoking, but put that drumstick down before you hurt yourself!
After watching three quarters of Thursday’s game, one fan wondered, “Who would have thought the New York Jets would be NBC’s best comedy show this year?”
For those of you who wondered why the Jets didn’t opt to bring in their “secret weapon” Tim Tebow during the fiasco, it was because he had sustained a multiple rib injury in Week #10’s 28-7 defeat in Seattle. ” I was only going to play him Tim if we absolutely had to have him”, said Ryan. So I guess if the Patriots would have run up the score to say, 72 19 then Rex would have called Tebow’s number…
Thursday’s game just epitomized the kind of season that Gang Green has had. Giving up 21 points in a span of just 52 seconds in the 2nd quarter sums up the despair and ineptitude that are these N.Y. Jets this season. They have been an over-rated and basically untalented bunch of players who are mainly the responsibility of the two people who need to exit the organization at seasons’ end; GM Mike Tannenbaum and Coach Rex Ryan. One, simply put, cannot and should not be fired without the other. But make no mistake, they both need to go!
Watching these Jets all season has made it appear as if Rich Kotite has been resurrected and is now strolling the sidelines. Tony Sparano and his Wildcat schemes have been a total bust. In four games this year, the Jets have failed to score more than 10 points with 10 vs Pittsburgh, 0 vs the 49ers, 9 vs the Dolphins, and 7 vs the Seahawks. His hiring, like the signing of Tim Tebow, has done nothing to better this team, and when Ryan goes, so should Sparano!
And lastly, the fan base, has thrown its collective hands up in the air. During the game last night at Met Life Stadium in the third quarter, a Waste Management Ad told the fans to “save their money for Jets playoff tickets.” Our intuition tells us that whatever money the fans had put aside for postseason tickets will now be spent on Black Friday sales instead!
The N.Y. Jets right now, along with several other teams, are the poster boys for a lack of parody in the NFL at the moment. They have scored 62 points over their last four games while the Patriots put up 108 in their last two and did it over a four day span! Last night’s one-sided victory gave Bill Belichick his 200th career coaching victory , one we’re sure the Jets and their fans will not soon forget…
Crap is spelled C – R – A -P ! It has now become synonymous with the Jets . Tebow on the sidelines must’ve wished he was back in Gainesville . Florida playing for the Gators , rather than being part of this mess .
He should rethink those damn idiotic statements as well ……… wanting to be the best player and teammate he can be . What with this team and the mess they’re currently in ?
I was hoping that Brady and the Pats would have put up 60 on the Jets ! Alas it wasn’t to be !
Trust you and the family , had a great Thanksgiving ?
Yes, we did! Thanks so much Alan. Hope you enjoyed your day as well.
As for the Jets, a deep fat fryer is the only place for them unfortunately.
How else can you spend Thanksgiving ? Imbibing (alcohol) , eating turkey and – watching football —– , I’ll use that that last term loosely with regard to the Jets and Cowboys’ debacle . Got loads of turkey and stuffing left for the rest of the week or so . Not too sure if the dog will be interested in leftover scraps , as he (Buster) started to be insensed by the Jets’ display . Need to take him to the vet , because I’d hate to think that the symptoms are psychosomatic ! LOL ,LOL,LOL !!! My dog is a Jets’ fan ? Damn ! LOL,LOL !!
Tophatal (avowed Pats’ fan !)
The Jets need a mercy rule for their season. They should clean house now to get an early start on next season.
Instead of playing on Thanksgiving, I think they ought to have a “Suckie Bowl” game in February after the Super Bowl. Contestants can be decided by the very worst record in the NFL, or by an “unpopular vote” from American fans.
Now, by “worst” team, I don’t mean the teams with the worst record, I mean the dumbest, cruddiest, most laughable teams in the NFL. Even something the Lions “challange” call could perhaps qualify them for the game. Who would play in this year’s “Suckie Bowl?”
Congrats to Bilichick’s 200th win…even if ya don’t like the guy, he’s a great NFL coach…
Nice game “wrap” Hank!
Thanks Steven! The Lions coach certainly would fit right on the Jets..And yes, Belicheat has never been one of our favorite coaches but he does keep on winning..
I thought the days of Rich Kotite, Joe Walton and the hapless Jets were behind us. We were all fooled into thinking that the Rex Ryan era would put an end to the “same old Jets” moniker. We were wrong. Thursday night’s loss was just the latest in a long history of low points. As a season-ticket holder, I demand accountability. Woody Johnson – who apparently requested that the Jets play on Thanksgiving (thanks for ruining Thanksgiving Woody!) – should be embarrassed.
Speaking of Rich Kotite, the last time the Jets had consecutive non-winning seasons was under Kotite in the 1995-96 season. As for Woody, he’s the Jerry Jones of the AFC East! As for Ryan, FYI after 2 seasons with the Jets, Eric Mangini was fired after going 9-7 in 2008.
Thanks for checking in.
Tebow needs to be “freed “ to explore other opportunities outside the NFL . Missionary work in Africa , goodwill ambassador to Malaysia , perhaps ?
Anywhere except Met Death Stadium. Tebow is another reason for Mike Tannenbaum’s removal..His coming to the Jets ranks right up there with Paxico and Favre!
There hasn’t any common sense coming out of the Jets’ front office in years , Tannenbaum and the owners are to blame for that . Tebow is simply an affable guy , not an NFL player . The sooner people begin to realize that fact , rather than this asinine notion of cheering ” for the underdog” , perhaps then reality will actually set in .
