Recent history has shown us that Super bowl winners have had there ass handed to them like the Jets did Monday night. The Giants lost their last November game to the Vikings 41-17, also losing a December game to the Redskins 22-10. The 2008 Pittsburgh Steelers lost their next to last game of the season to the Titans 31-14 also getting manhandle earlier that season by the Eagles who only beat them 15-6 but held them to 224 total yards and sacked Big Ben 9 times that game. The 2006 Colts lost to the Jaguars 44-17 letting the Jags gash them for 375, yes I said 375 yards rushing. All these teams went on to win the Super Bowl. The 2008 Arizona Cardinals whom lost the Super Bowl that season lost games 47-8 to the Pats, 48-12 to the Eagles, and 56-33 to our Jets that season.
Why the Jets will not win the Super Bowl
The one thing that all these teams have in common was good coaches whom made the require adjustments to turned their teams seasons around. Do the Jets have the coaching that can help perform similar turnarounds. That remains to be seen, however, I've notice a disturbing trend. The Jets last three opponents have not loaded the box daring Sanchez to throw the ball. Teams are now daring the Jets to run the ball. You don't believe me, watch the tape of those games. How has the Jets responded, they still are throwing the football more then they are running it. Still, I can't put this all on the coaches. The Jets had a good game plan to come out in the no huddle. It was smart because it kept the Pats base defense on the field, while giving Sanchez a chance to get rolling. Well Sanchez came out very ineffective, throwing very inaccurate passes that prevented his receivers from getting yards after the catch. Also, Eric Smith could had turned this game around. On the PI, he seen the ball coming, but instead of going after the ball, he went after the receiver instead. Brady under threw it, it was a sure interception. Also on Deion Branch touchdown, he was suppose to jump that slant route but somehow got caught up. He was suppose to be there for that slant pass. The point is even with the best game plan, the Jet players need to perform. Thats all I got, I could give 100 reason either way, but I really feel this team still has a chance to be special.
