Sorry all for the delay in another post. As we know the Jets have dropped two crucial games in the last two weeks. But, there is no need to dwell on what is now history. It is time to look forward and run the table or at worst drop one game (hopefully to an NFC opponent). It all starts tomorrow at home against a team that the Jets have man handled in recent memory. The last three times the Jets and the Bills have met it has been all Jets. After starting off the season quickly at jumping out to a 5-2 record Buffalo has dropped of dramatically. It all started when the Jets went to Buffalo and gave them a nice beating. Since than, the Bills have not even been competitive. Things have gotten ugly and they appear to be the same old Bills. With that said, the same has happened to New York. After going to Buffalo and winning with relative ease they have come crashing down to earth with a loss to New England and an unacceptable, despicable, horrific loss on a Thursday night in Denver. This loss was as bad a regular season loss the Jets have had in a very long time. The offense was once again sub-par and in the end the defense could not hold up their end of the bargain. It appeared as though the defense was going to be able to without much of a problem against the Tim Tebow led Broncos the last drive of the fourth quarter. All of a sudden, it was as if Tebow went into the locker room and put his superman cape on. Tebow capped off the drive with a 22 yard td run with 58 seconds left on the clock. Did anyone on earth think at this point the Jets offense could drive down the field for the win? I sure did not. The game ended in agony with a 17-13 loss and sent the Jets back to New York in need of some serious questions to be answered. To me, the question is not is Sanchez the right man for the job? Obviously he has not played as well as we had all hoped entering the season. It appears as though he is shell shocked. This can happen to a young QB especially with the way he has been hit this season. The offensive line needs to step up as a unit and give this guy some time. We have seen in the past his ability to win games when he gets time. Think of last years Patriots playoff game, probably the best game of his young career. The offensive line was flawless and so was Sanchez. The key to the rest of the season is Sanchez’s performance. This goes hand in hand with the pass protection. If this can get back on track so will the Jets. Without this we might be staring straight at a top 20 draft pick and a lot of changes being made to this team.
It all starts tomorrow. If the Jets are going to make the playoffs there is a chance they are going to have to run the table. This is possible with a weak schedule down the stretch. I am going to be optimistic here with my pick and say the offense bounces back tomorrow and the Jets win easily 28-10.
