The 2012 New York Jets: 0-16

"Let's go eat a goddamn snack!" - HC Rex Ryan

Press the panic button, sound the alarms. But first, take a peek at this article. Yes, before a snap has been taken of the 2012-2013 season, the New York Jets are the laughing stock of the National Football League.

By the tenor of the article, you'd think we were the 2008 Detroit Lions. As Peter Schrager (who?) states:

There's absolutely no way this team can possibly be a Super Bowl contending squad this year.
The season's done. DOA. I'm not sure just how much worse it will get, but if I'm a Jets fan, I'm already looking toward next year's Draft and free-agent class.

R.I.P., 2012 Jets. You never had a chance.

This season is the definition of "us-against-the-world." Nobody is on our side. We have all the coverage on ESPN any team could possibly want, but it's almost entirely negative coverage. Hardly anybody is saying anything positive about us. They may be right that we're not a Superbowl-caliber team. But they're wrong that we don't have a chance. Even if we don't end up hoisting the Lombardi Trophy, there are going to be a lot of people looking like fools at the end of the season, because this team is going to destroy the expectations set before it. This team still has many of the same characteristics and players that drove it to two consecutive AFC Championships. This season isn't over. It's just getting started.
