I said during Weeks 3 and 4 and I’ll say it again..

The New York Jets are not a good football team.

After being beat down by the Raiders and Ravens in consecutive weeks, the Jets came out with a little more emotion for their showdown in Foxboro. The results were no different as the defense couldn’t stop the run, the offense couldn’t move the ball, and the special teams accounted for one of their two scores. For the third week in a row, the Jets have allowed a team to rush for 100+ yards as Ben Jarvus Green-Ellis rumbled for 136 yards and 2 TDs. This isn’t not the ‘Best Defense In The League’ like Rex so confidently states each week. The Jets have fallen to 2-3 on the season, but along with the Philadelphia Eagles, they’ve turned into the laughing stocks of the NFL.

I really don’t even want to get into my weekly preview about the game. If you want to read it, go here. My preview was completely spot on, so check it out. 

The Jet defense has become one of the biggest laughing stocks in the league. Rex has the best defensively player in the world, but that means nothing when the other ten players around him can’t play. How many times did we see BenJarvus Green-Ellis break Jet tackles and run into the end zone? How many more times will we need to watch Wes Welker go scurrying down the field for a massive gainer? How many more times will we watch Brady sit like a statue in the pocket and pick the Jets apart? Despite sacking Brady four times, he had his way with the Jet defense. At times, it looked entirely too easy for him. 

For the Jet offense, I don’t think it’s fair to get on Brian, ok. Schotty has been horrible at playing calling. He doesn’t utilize the talent on his team. Schotty wants to go back to ‘Ground & Pound’, but that won’t be possible with the current Jet personnel. Rex’s first ‘Ground & Pound’ team had Alan Faneca, Thomas Jones, Tony Ricardson, Damien Woody. These were some tough ass dudes. We don’t see anyone like that on the Jets now. 

Whenever a team struggles, the head coach will always get the brunt of the blame. In Philly, Andy Reid is dealing with a vastly underachieving team. You hardly hear the Eagles’s defensive coordinator getting screamed at because the defense stinks. Rather, you hear all of the blame going at the head coach. Why has NY been blind to this so far? The blame for the offense or defense will always reside with the head coach. Time to start facing the music, Rex.

What’s Next?

The Jets will come home after a three-game roadie for a Monday Night showdown at home against the 0-4 Dolphins
