It seems as if few Jets fans on the interblogospherenet are considering this game to be the death knell for our season. Good. It isn't. This season is far from over and if we execute we will have a shot at revenge that I have never wanted so badly. Not to say that we are the favorites, but there is a reason to keep watching Jets football and 9-3 is fine with me no matter how we got there. I want to win a Superbowl. I understand that obviously winning the division and having home-field advantage would help that goal, but it is not the ONLY way to that goal, not to mention the fact that a Pats loss to an AFC team would give us the tie-breaker again and give us a shot at the 1st seed.
Above was the first deep breath. From what I have seen a lot of you would agree with what I have said above. I think the next step is to stop placing blame on any individual. People are calling for Schotty's head but to be honest, other than monday I have liked the job he's done. And it's not as if play calling alone caused that massacre, as the great "Coop" Cooper said in Baseketball "It took every player working together to lose this one." Look, I'm not saying I want to lock Schotty up to a 10 year deal, but lets see what he does over the rest of the season before we run him out of town. One of his best qualities that I have seen over his time with the Jets is that as defenses adjust to his offense he can add new wrinkles and fully use his pieces. Everyone is saying that this game was important because it showed us what was wrong with the team. I agree, but I don't think it showed us that Schotty is one of the problems, just that his game plan for that one game was.
We can't really make any major changes at this point in the season. Do I want a passrusher? Yes. Can we feasibly get one? Not really. Lets sit tight with what we have and see how it pans out.
If Rex gets rid of a player or even a coach, fine, but I don't think we have all of the information necessary to make such a decision.
In Rex we trust.
