To say that this has been a disappointing season for the Jets and their fans would be understating an understatement’s understatement, yeah literally one of those things that forces a mega-sarcastic “REALLY?” look on your face. Outside of the consistent play of the defense, which hasn’t been great in itself but still playing at a consistently solid level, the Jets haven’t done much right this season and that’s putting it nicely. For the most part, the Jets have beaten the teams they were suppose to beat and lost to the teams they were expected to lose to, which is just a long drawn out way of saying that the Jets are who we thought they were going into the season. No matter what or who you blame (we all know which side of the fence I land on when discussing “who’s to blame”) for the Jets unfortunate god awful play this season, the fact of the matter is, they have failed and have given Jets fans a reason to either show up to games with paper bags over their heads or simply NOT show up at all.
The Jets have tried their hardest to run their fans away this season by fanning the stench surrounding the personnel decisions and their play on the field. No one can blame any Jets fan that decided to take cover and shield themselves from the foul odor that is this Jets team as it’s been pretty unbearable at times this season, even sadly reaching remarkably and epically putrid levels this past Thanksgiving night which had most parents outraged at NBC Networks for showing this NFL Malfunction in front of kids that left them longing for a Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake performance. Kids were watching MAN!!!….. KIDS!!!!!
I think we realize the extent of just how the Jets have disappointed any and all that care and entertain any and all that don’t care but just looking for laughs. So if I told you the Jets had a chance to completely change the hearts and minds of those that care would you believe me? Well it’s true. With just 3 games to go in the season the Jets at 6-7 are not only in the middle of the playoff race but they actually have a legitimate shot at sneaking into the playoffs. Something that was unheard of as late as Thanksgiving Night after the Massacre by way of the Pats and frankly something that was unheard of probably the entire season with the way the Jets have fumbled the ball this year, literally and metaphorically. Though as unlikely as it may seem, the Jets find themselves in somewhat of interesting situation with 3 games remaining, a situation that allows them a bit of control to essentially re-gather the hearts and minds of the Jets faithful like a villain turned hero by the end of the movie. A situation that if capitalized on immediately, aggressively, appropriately and effectively can start to rally the support from Jets fans which during this time of the season, can provide the team with much needed emotionally charged motivation.
