Turn On The Jets 12 Pack, Week 7 Edition

The Turn On The Jets 12 Pack with predictions for New York Jets vs. New England Patriots in week 7

You’ll have to excuse my skepticism about the New York Jets chances this Sunday. No Vince Wilfork. No Jerod Mayo. No Aqib Talib. No Danny Amendola. No Shane Vereen. And on and on. I’ve seen this movie before. 2008? No Brady…Jets still lost at home. Back in week 2? Pats were all sorts of banged up…Jets still lost. I know we had the good times (and the bad times) in 2009 and 2010 but the past five meetings have been ugly for the Jets against the Patriots.

New York Jets – Can They Break Ugly Patriots Regular Season Trend?

The 2nd match-up of the regular season against the New England Patriots has been a nightmare for the New York Jets under Rex Ryan. Can they break the trend?

Since Rex Ryan has taken over as Head Coach of the New York Jets in 2009, there have been a few ongoing trends with the team. They generally play very good defense that can be shaky at holding leads late. Offensively, they prefer to run the football and have had ongoing inconsistencies. Rex owns Buffalo. Miami owns Rex. New England? Boom or bust. They’ve had their good moments but when it is bad, it has been really…really bad and those nightmare performances have always been in the team’s second regular season meeting.

Initial Reaction – Jets Fall Right Into Trap Game, Drop To 3-3

Initial reaction to the New York Jets frustrating 19-6 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers

Today had all the makings of a trap game and the New York Jets fell right into it against the previously 0-4 Pittsburgh Steelers. With two weeks to prepare and the Jets on a short week after their biggest win of the season, Pittsburgh pushed the Jets around on their own field and out schemed them on both sides of the football. It was a disappointing step back after the progress seemingly made last week. The timing couldn’t have been worse either as the Jets now enter the most difficult 3 game stretch left on their schedule.

TOJ Staff Writer Dalbin Osorio breaks down the New York Jets Week 6 opponent, the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Thanks to Geno Smith’s third game winning drive of the season, the Jets went into Atlanta and beat Matt Ryan and his fantasy football offense. Standing at 3-2, the Jets have begun to turn some heads behind a potent defensive line, a rejuvenated offensive line, and a poised rookie QB. On Week 6, they welcome the six-time Super Bowl champion Pittsburgh Steelers. Let’s get to know the opponent for Week 6.

Turn On The Jets 12 Pack, Week 6 Edition

The Turn On The Jets 12 Pack gives predictions for Jets vs. Steelers

There is nothing worse than a forced reduction of something down to an all or nothing explanation. We live in too much of a “FIRST TAKE” world, where being the loudest takes precedent over actual analysis and discussion. Very rarely are things black and white. There are shades of gray to most issues.

This carries over to the world of sports, which we should always remember is a world that is ultimately meant to be a fun distraction from the anxieties and pressures of all those important “real world” situations. If you aren’t having fun following your team or your game, what is the point?

Initial Reaction – Hello World! New York Jets Drop Falcons 30-28

Initial reaction to the New York Jets thrilling 30-28 Monday Night win over the Atlanta Falcons

In what was arguably their best regular season win since the beginning of the 2011 season, the New York Jets knocked off the Atlanta Falcons on Monday Night Football, 30-28. Yes, those New York Jets are 3-2. Rex Ryan, the lame duck coach who is just waiting to be fired. Geno Smith, the bum rookie who should be benched for Matt Simms…and the rest of the gang continues to win football games when nobody expects them to. The Football World should have taken notice tonight, the Jets aren’t in the discussion for being the worst team in the league…they may just be in the discussion for a playoff spot come November and December.
