New York Jets: Season Not Ended By One Loss

Mike Donnelly of TOJ says why fans should still believe in the 2014 New York Jets despite the loss to the Green Bay Packers

Let’s get something out of the way right off the bat. The New York Jets loss to the Packers was a gut punch and inexcusable considering the 18 point lead. I know it, you know it, Rex Ryan knows it, worst punter in the NFL Ryan Quigley knows it, everyone knows it. I’m not letting anyone off the hook, and I know there’s plenty of blame to go around…What I am going to say is how despite that loss, there’s an awful lot to like about this team through two weeks. There, now that we got that out of the way, let’s get started!

Now that the New York Jets 2013 has officially ended, it is time to turn the page and look forward to 2014. The future is certainly bright for the Jets and fans have reason to be excited. With a ton of cap space and perhaps as many as 12 draft choices, there will be plenty of new faces by next season.

But what about the current roster? Which players will be back in green next year and which will be taking their talents (or in some cases, their lack of talent) elsewhere?

Initial Reaction – That’s How You Finish: Jets Win…Rex Returns

Joe Caporoso with reaction to the New York Jets week 17 win and the announcment of Rex Ryan’s return

The New York Jets ended the season with an exclamation point today in Miami, knocking their division rival Dolphins out of the playoffs with an impressive 20-7 victory. Basically immediately after the game, Owner Woody Johnson announced that Rex Ryan will return as the Jets head coach in 2014. We haven’t received word about a contract extension but it is likely the Jets will add a year or two on to his deal. There are also rumblings that the defensive coaching staff could be shook up a little bit, so stay tuned for further information on that front.

A Day At MetLife – Jets vs. Browns

In what was regarded by many as a “meaningless” game, the New York Jets beat the Cleveland Browns with an impressive effort on Sunday. Many teams often crumble once they are mathematically eliminated from the playoffs, but the Jets fought like a team with new life. Rookie quarterback Geno Smith was efficient with three touchdowns and no turnovers. The defense held tough on their own end of the field multiple times. Overall, it was an exciting game to watch, especially from the south end zone. I was fortunate enough to attend the game with my father, a life long Jets fan since the Shea Stadium days.  Continue reading “A Day At MetLife – Jets vs. Browns”
