I say this every single week, but I think it's important to say it again. I don't put a great deal of stock in power rankings, at the end of the day its one persons view. However I always find it interesting to see how other people view the Jets. If we're ranked low, I don't think our season is over. If we're ranked high, I don't think we're going to the Super Bowl. So keep that in mind when you read through these. If you hate Power Rankings, then look away now.
Much criticism directed Todd Bowles' way regarding the fourth-down decisions. I thought they were OK, given the way the defense was playing. And for those critiquing the play-calling on fourth-and-2 early in the fourth quarter, try to remember that offensive coordinator Chan Gailey called that play. Or Ryan Fitzpatrick might have changed it -- but I don't think so. Also try to remember that the Jets were without regular kicker Nick Folk. That is all.
The Jets have lost three of their past four, allowing 27.3 points per game in that stretch. The Jets started 4-1, allowing 15 points per game in those first five contests.
That was a bad loss at home to the Bills. Now they have to find out if Ryan Fitzpatrick can play well after thumb surgery.
Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick will have wrist surgery this week, but isn't expected to miss any time.
New York is a tough team to gauge. On one hand, the Jets are showcasing a good defense and have a nice rushing attack behind the punishing style of Chris Ivory. On the other hand, Ryan Fitzpatrick is mediocre at best and the front seven is not quite as devastating as most expected. The Jets are sitting at 5-4 and currently out of the AFC playoff picture, although only on a tiebreaker. With seven weeks to go, it will be interesting to see if Fitzpatrick can elevate his game or if things go off the rails, as they have for him in previous uniforms. Also, can first-year head coach Todd Bowles steer this group through some tough times? We will find out shortly.
To say that the honeymoon is over for Todd Bowles would be to assume that Jets fans ever really gave him one.
Lost three of four. Deservingly.
Psst, coach Bowles, let's not turn down any more 37-yard FGs at start of fourth quarter when you're only down 12.
I'm not sure why we're so quick to pick nits with Darrelle Revis this season. He held Sammy Watkins to three catches and 17 yards. Everyone is quick to point out that Watkins had a drop and that he beat Revis deep once but the Bills couldn't connect ... and that kind of proves the point. People are needing to look very, very closely to find reasons to discredit Revis.
