The debacle on Thanksgiving is behind us, and we move forward. Sunday, we lead off with the Cardinals as we move into the final five games of the 2012 season. The Jets are basically playing the spoiler role, although they are not mathematically out of the race yet. In order to hold out any hope, the Jets are going to have to run the table and hope for help. What does coach Ryan think about running the table as a goal?

Heck yeah, that’s your goal. Absolutely, that’s what you’re trying to do. Our goal was to beat New England also but that never worked out. That’s why you play. You try and win every game that you’re in. I’m saying right now I’m not going to make a guarantee that we’re going to make the playoffs or that deal. We have to get better. It has to start right now. You can’t look down the road. Of course, you’d like to run the table. I guess that’s human nature to say hey I see what’s on our schedule, we have to win all five games, we have to do this, we have to do that. We have to win this game. I think that’s where the entire focus is.

Rex is always going to be positive, it’s his way. How possible is running the table? I know I am not confident about it, watching this team this year. We’ll find out soon enough.
