The New York Jets: A Case Of Mediocrity

Rex Ryan is known for many things that he says, but one of his favorites is “Play like a Jet.” In his sixth season as head coach of the New York Jets, he has led the team to two consecutive AFC Championship games and also had the bottom fall out from under them in later years. In 2013, the team finished 8-8 and now is 1-1 heading into a Week 3 match-up with the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football.


Will the real Jets please stand up? Perhaps they already have.

This is a franchise still holding their proverbial index finger up like Joe Namath did while jogging off the Orange Bowl field following one of the most unlikeliest Super Bowl wins of all time. But that was 1969 and they have not been back to the big game once since then.


Often pulling off a surprise win and then following it up with a loss to a lesser opponent has become the Jets’ mantra. Last Sunday, they came out of their corner swinging in Green Bay and built up a 21-3 lead versus the favored Packers. But a brutal second half resulted in a painful 31-24 loss that included a time out called from the sideline by defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson while the potential game-tying touchdown was occurring on the playing field.

“I talked to the team about how I feel, about what our fans expect, and to me, like I said, it’s time to deliver; we need to deliver” Ryan said. “I’m not going to get into specifics about what we’re delivering, but I know what our fans expect. And they’re going to get everything we have.”


Hopefully that will eclipse eight wins.
