Can everyone PLEASE just get a hold of themselves?

Everywhere i look on this Blog someone's calling for someone else's head. Be it Schotty, Sanchez, Rex, Mike T, Woody, Wayne Hunter, Eric Smith, Santonio Holmes, or the whole team. Granted, some of this criticism is valid, and I certainly agree with a lot of the anger towards Schotty, Hunter, and Smith, but for crying out loud let's all try to be reasonable and think about what would happen if we got rid of some of these other people that you're trying to point out.

Let's start with Rex. Did it ever occur to anyone that every coach occasionally has an off-year? Imagine if the Patriots fired Belichick in 2002 when they didn't make the playoffs after winning the super bowl the year prior. Andy Reid has had several .500 or lower seasons with the Eagles and he's been there for over a decade. Why don't we all take a look back at what Rex has done for this team in the 2 years that he's been here. He's given them swagger, relevance, 2 trips to the AFC championship game (as many as the Jets have had since winning their only SB), and some optimism. And as disappointing as this season has been, at least it hasn't been one of those 6-10 or 4-12 seasons that "Mangenius" or Herm Edwards had after going 10-6 or 9-7 a previous year. So all hope certainly isn't lost for the future. What would we do if Rex got Fired? I'll let you answer that for yourself.

Now for Mike T. Sure, he's had some bad picks since he's been the GM, but who doesn't have some bad picks here and there? Who doesn't make some bad moves from time to time? Mike T has drafted some very good players, such as Darelle Revis, David Harris, Nick Mangold, D'brickashaw Ferguson (yeah he's having an off-year ik), Joe Mcknight, and Dustin Keller. He's signed good free agents and made good trades in the past. And say what you will, but he's not Matt Millen, just keep that in mind.

Mark Sanchez, I won't deny that he hasn't played that well this season and constantly misses open receivers, or fails to hit them in stride, but enough with trying to singlehandedly blame everything on him, or trying to twist and mold past events so that everything ends up being his fault in some way. But he certainly hasn't gotten worse since last year, and that's with a much weaker offensive line, no Braylon edwards, and a defense that's taken a step back, meaning that they can't always bail him out. And I know plenty of you complain about how he steps into pressure, but guess what? If he didn't step up he'd get hit from the edges and you would all complain about how he doesn't step up in the pocket. And as much as Rex shows support for him, Sanchez will be playing for his Job in the eyes of the management next year, so if he really is that bad, you won't have to deal with him for much longer.

My point in all of this is that you should think about what you're saying and quit demanding that this entire team be dismantled and start from scratch. I could add more details to what i've said before, but I won't. And at least this team isn't going through the same kind of struggles as franchises like the browns, rams, and vikings. Be grateful at least that the Jets have had some sustained success the past few seasons.
