The Real Question?


It seems that everyone is asking the question of why the Jets lost yesterday and whose fault it was. This is the wrong question because there is no definitive answer. Sanchez haters and the media will blame his play, even though by all accounts he outplayed Tom Brady. People will blame the coaches for questionable calls/strategy. People will blame the refs for giving the Pats home cooking.

People will debate and debate until they are blue in the face and it won't matter becasue they are dealing with the wrong question.

The question we should all be asking is what happens next? How will the team respond? The Jets, aside from a handfull of plays, just outplayed a very mediocre, division leading team. The Jets are only one game out of first place in a very mediocre division. The Jets' schedule is not one that makes one cringe.

So, what do they do? Do they take this "moral victory" and put a beatdown on the even more mediocre Dolphins and go into the bye week at 4-4? Then get healthy, build momentum with an "easy" schedule and make a playoff run, or do they hang their heads and let this loss snowball down the hill and ruin the season?

This will be the true test of Rex Ryan and his coaching staff. They have had moments of brilliance and moments of utter incompetence on the sidelines. This will be the legacy of Rex Ryan. If he cannot rally his troops, turn this negative into a positive, he may lose his job.

This game against Miami is not only "must-win"...it may change the future of the entire franchise.
