The Jets have a tough road ahead of them to make the playoffs in 2012. The Jets have no pargin for error, coming in with a 3-5 record. If the Jets go any less than 6-2, they can kiss the playoffs goodbye. It’s going to be tough, and it starts Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks.
There are a lot of inherent challenges to playing in Seattle, and a lot of it starts with the crowd noise. Seattle is one of the loudest places to play, and the Jets talked about that yesterday. First, Yeremiah Bell:
It’s loud. It’s very loud there. I’ve played there one time I think in my career. But I do remember it being loud. I do remember their crowd being into the game a lot. It’s a tough place to play. So we’re going to have to go in there and we’re going to have to have everything right. We can’t go in there and help them win the game like we did the previous couple of weeks. I think that bye week was our chance to get away and get things right.
Here is what Antonio Cromartie had to say about it:
It’s hard. This is only my second time playing there since my rookie year in San Diego. So it’s a hard place, it’s a loud place, it’s noisy. I think the biggest thing for us is just we have to go out and execute and do the things that we do (well), we have to do them great. The things that we do not so (well), we have to make sure we do (well) at those things. I think we just have to make sure we just go out and execute and do the things that we need to do.
It certainly is going to be tough. We will see how it goes.
