Initial Reaction: Bad Times Roller Coaster, Bills Crush Jets

Initial reaction to the Jets embarrassing loss to the Bills

The New York Jets continued their bizarre, incredibly frustrating season with a 37-14 whipping at the hands of the Buffalo Bills. This is a team that can still find no measure of consistency and yet because of how weak the AFC is on the back end, remain right in the thick of the playoff race.

Initial Reaction – The Good Time Roller Coaster, Jets Upset Saints

Initial reaction to the Jets impressive upset victory over the New Orleans Saints, 26-20

The 2013 New York Jets roller coaster swung in a positive direction today with their most impressive win of the season, 26-20 over the previously 6-1 New Orleans Saints. Today was a banner day for Rex Ryan who schemed up a terrific defensive game plan that flummoxed Drew Brees all day, along with Marty Mornhinweg who has an offense that is producing despite featuring a collection of mid-season acquisitions at the pass catching positions. You can start thinking about it Jets fans…the playoffs are on the radar for this team.

Initial Reaction – Burn The Tape. Jets Embarrassed by Cincinnati

Initial reaction to the Jets 49-9 loss to the Bengals

The New York Jets continue to be the NFL’s most inconsistent team. One week after an impressive overtime win against the New England Patriots, they were thoroughly humiliated by the Cincinnati Bengals 49-9. The game was every bit as ugly as the score indicates. The Jets were out-coached and out-classed on both sides of the football.

Initial Reaction – Finally! New York Jets Get Overdue Win Against Pats

Initial reaction to the New York Jets 30-27 overtime win over the New England Patriots

The New York Jets had a classic first half against the New England Patriots. Offensively, they turned the football over which directly led to Patriots points. Defensively, they looked unprepared for the hurry up offense. Penalties. Poor special teams. 21-10 New England at the half. It felt like the Jets were on their way to yet another frustrating loss to New England, along with further burial in the AFC East standings.

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.

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.

Initial Reaction – New York Jets Beat Down In Tennessee

Initial Reaction to the New York Jets getting beat down In Tennessee

The New York Jets got hit in the mouth in Tennessee today, falling to the Titans 38-13. It was ugly from the very beginning they were never able to turn the tide, primarily thanks to a rash of turnovers and penalties. It was a nightmare performance for rookie quarterback Geno Smith who had 2 interceptions and 2 very bad fumbles, both of which showed very little field awareness.

Initial Reaction – New York Jets Stuff Stat Sheet, Move To 2-1

Initial Reaction to the New York Jets 27-20 win over the Buffalo Bills

If you have been watching the New York Jets for a prolonged period of time, you know certain statistical days rarely happen. 300 yard passers. 100 yard receivers. 100 yard rushers. 5+ sacks in a single game…these things just don’t happen all that often. 20 penalties? Now that sounds a little more believable.

Initial Reaction – Opportunity Missed, New York Jets Lose Ugly To Pats

Initial reaction to the New York Jets disappointing loss to the New England Patriots, 13-10

Before the season, many reasonable people would have signed up for the New York Jets being 1-1 after two games, with a 13-10 loss in New England on a short week. However, that doesn’t ease the immediate sting of losing a very winnable game to your rivals. Tonight’s game was there for the taking but the Jets made one too many mistakes and not enough plays. Turnovers. Dropped passes. Questionable play calls. Blown coverages. No loss to New England is easy to stomach but the Jets had a real chance to be 2-0 tonight and they missed it.

Initial Reaction – 1-0: New York Jets Pull Out Stunning Win

Initial reaction to the New York Jets stunning opening day win, 18-17, over the Tampa Bay Bucs

Whoa.

Admit it, you were cursing Rex Ryan and his overrated, un-clutch defense after Tampa Bay took a 17-15 lead with 34 seconds left. A terrific all around effort from his unit and an encouraging debut from Geno Smith was about to go to waste because of one ill-timed blitz and one missed tackle. The media would pile on and revel in the Jets 0-1 start. Yet, today wasn’t a day for the “LOLJETS” – Today was a day for Rex and his team to pull a victory out of thin air and let Jets fans have something to smile about. Yes, they got a major hand from a poorly coached, undisciplined and overrated Tampa team but wins are wins and we’ll take them all.
