Instant Reaction: Same Old Jets

Photobucket

When you have 10 days to prepare for your biggest game of the year. It doesn’t say much for your organization when you are completely out coached, out schemed, out played, and out everything you can think of.

The New York Jets were exposed as frauds tonight. They were embarrassed on national television and unequivocally proven to be second class citizens in the AFC East and the AFC. Don’t talk about the Jets with the Patriots, Ravens, or Steelers anymore. They aren’t on that level or even close for that matter. They are now in the mix with the Chiefs, Jaguars, Colts, Chargers, and the rest of the mediocrity throughout the conference.

There won’t be any home playoff games this year and don’t write the Jets in as a playoff team yet. You think the team you watched tonight is going to Pittsburgh or Chicago and getting a victory?

The Jets defense was awful tonight. Not just awful, but they quit and let Tom Brady completely dice them apart. They ushered Danny Woodhead down the field so he could make us cringe, as Joe McKnight looked good in his winter jacket on the sideline. Antonio Cromartie lacked effort and forgot how to tackle. Drew Coleman…looked like, well Drew Coleman.

I can’t write enough about how pathetic the effort level was on defense. It starts with Rex Ryan, who didn’t have his team prepared tonight and did a terrible job with game management and game planning. Sorry Rex, it doesn’t make sense to challenge a quarterback sneak on your offense’s first drive, just like it doesn’t make sense to blitz the house and leave Drew Coleman one on one with Wes Welker. Where was Darrelle Revis by the way?

Offense? Mark Sanchez isn’t ready yet. He was shaken from the first possession of this game. Braylon Edwards is back to dropping passes in big spots. Dustin Keller? Where was he? At least Santonio Holmes and Shonn Greene showed up, but that was about it.

It was one thing to lose the game. It is another thing to be embarrassed. It is another thing to quit and be completely humiliated. Hell, I am embarrassed I spent 10 days writing articles previewing the game and the Jets couldn’t put up an effort.

Say it with me now…

Same. Old. Jets.

I need a day off.
