I never liked Plaxico Burress. I never liked his antics, demeanor, or his style of play. However, Jet fans loved Plax today as he hauled in one two three touchdown passes in the Jets 27-21 win against the San Diego Chargers. The Jets were in a ‘must-win’ situation and took care of their business. They are now 4-0 at home this season.

Plain and simple. The New York Jets are not a good football team.

The New York Jets gave an absolutely dreadful effort in front of the ENTIRE nation on Sunday Night Football. The Baltimore Ravens kicked the Jets’s ass up and down the field enroute to a 34-17 victory. Mark Sanchez, who completed only 30% of his pass attempts, accounted for three turnovers and 119 yards in the loss. The Jets run game was non-existent, totaling only 38 yards. Hell, the Jet offense was so bad that they only got within the 20-yard line once! The Jets failed to do any of the three game keys I highlighted last week. With the ugly loss, the Jets fall to 2-2 (0-2 on the road). Put your helmet on because some hard hitting analysis is coming after the jump…

Hard hits. Battered bodies. No love loss.

Expect all of this and more as the Jets head to Baltimore to take on the Ravens. The 2-1 Ravens are coming off a 37-7 thumping of the St. Louis Rams while the 2-1 Jets were gashed by the Oakland Raider rushing attack. Last season, the Ravens beat the Jets 10-9 in a very, very sloppy game where the Jets drew 14 penalties. The Ravens held the Jets to 174 total yards, allowing Mark Sanchez to throw for just 74 yards. Anquan Boldin gave Antonio Cromartie fits, torching him for 110 yards. Here are three keys to the game and reasons why the Jets will fall to 2-2 this Sunday.

The New York Jets will welcome the Jacksonville Jaguars to New York for their Week 2 match-up. Both teams won their opening games last week, as the Classless Jets topped the Cowboys late and the Jags stopped Chris Johnson and the Titans. The Jets will look to tee-off on one of the weakest starting quarterbacks in the league, Luke McCown. Despite the presence of Maurice Jones-Drew, the Jets need to come out and dominate on both sides of the ball tomorrow. Vegas has the Classless Ones pegged as a nine-point favorite, but here are three reasons why they will win by more than that.

If your name is Rex and you are associated with the NFL, Sunday was a good day for you. For starters, Mr. Grossman threw for 305 yards and 2 scores as his Washington Redskins topped the Giants, 28-14. Later on, Mr. Ryan watched his criminals team rally from 14 points down in the fourth quarter to top America’s Chokeartists, 27-24.

Going forward, expect more of the same from both teams. Here are three things that I noticed on Sunday..

A team’s success can only be judged by the expectations of its head coach. For the last two seasons, Rex Ryan has guaranteed that the Jets would be hoisting up the Lombari Trophy in February. For two straight years, Rex’s trophy case has been empty. For two straight years, Jet fans have been left at the AFC Championship alter. For two straight years, the Jets have failed.  

Entering his third year as the pilot of the Jets, Rex must focus on winning games on a week-to-week basis instead of putting unrealistic future pressure on his team. Rex, it’s time to win it all or face the mounting scrutiny from the national media.

For the last two years, Plaxico Burress donned the uniform of the Oneida Correctional Facility in upstate New York. Yesterday afternoon, Burress agreed to stay in the Empire State, but to join Rex Ryan and Co. After extended discussions with his two past employees (The Steelers and Giants) with a little Eagle mixed in, the ex-con decided to restart his career in the same city where it was put on pause. Burress agreed to a one-year, $3 million ‘let’s see what you have left’ deal. Here are two reasons why the Jets and Rex Ryan shouldn’t expect this deal to shoot them in the foot. (Pun intended).

The NFL remains locked out, leaving many free agents players and their families in limbo. The top Jet wide receivers, Santonio Holmes and Braylon Edwards, are in this group, but have expressed a desire to return to Gang Green. However, there are a host of other talented wide receiver options that the Jets could potential be interested in. After giving the Jet defense headaches for four seasons, could Randy Moss be the key to an AFC Championship? Could the recently freed, 6’5″ Plaxico Burress continue to call New York home? Both options have obvious upside, but could potential problems outweigh the positives?
