Optimism (Not a Kool-Aid Post)

Yesterday, the Jets decided to hand the game to the Bills... it is time to move on. There will be no analysis, a.k.a. finger-pointing here because it cannot change the outcome of the game. If you're looking for criticism of Geno Smith, the offensive line, or another player, you're in the wrong place.

Through ten games, the Jets have not shown any semblance of consistency. They have proven that no game is a guaranteed win or loss. Despite having decisive wins over the Patriots and the Saints, they are certainly not an elite team. Contrary to the product on the field yesterday, they're definitely not one of the worst teams in the league either. A lot can be said about this team's point differential and turnover ratio, but ultimately the only thing that really matters is their record. At 5-5, now is not the time to be pessimistic and start flooding GGN with 2014 Mock Drafts. Thanks to the AFC's top-heavy nature, the Jets currently hold the sixth playoff spot, so it's far too early to write the season off.

As for the remaining six games on the Jets' schedule, knowing the fickle nature of this team, making any predictions is difficult. Nevertheless, none of the Jets' remaining opponents, with the possible exception of the Panthers, have proven to be capable of consistently beating good teams. If the Jets can defend the pass adequately, limit their turnovers, and come up with a few big plays on special teams, a 4-2 record is very possible.

Watching the Jets get blown out is not fun, and they've already lost by 20+ points three times this year. However, in what was supposed to be a rebuilding year, I'm appreciative of the five wins that they have so far. Hopefully, the Jets can right the ship and take advantage of their upcoming opportunities.
