Now I realize it’s the Jets I’m referring to here and yes I realize they the Jets usually do the opposite of any and everything that’s logical and yes I realize that the Jets have disappointed immensely when they had the chance to make a bit of real noise, yes I realize this but lets not act like the Jets haven’t been knocked down, kicked, left for dead and rose up kicked the white towel out of the ring, wiped the blood clean and came back swinging before. No matter how bad/mediocre Rex Ryan and Mark Sanchez have been at their respective jobs, lets no forget the many times they’ve come through at other times in the past when the stakes were very high and many had counted them out. Let’s not get into what exactly needs to happen in order for the Jets to make the playoffs, I’ll just simply say this about the Jets chances of getting into the playoffs; I’ve had a more difficult path to get to the checkout line in WALMART than the Jets have in front of them leading to the playoffs. Take that however you will and want to but take it lightly because the Jets will have to pull something within themselves and handle their business before rooting for and depending on anyone else. This is a defining moment for the Jets and the Rex Ryan era believe it or not even If they don’t make the playoffs. Jets show some fight and pride and win out when there’s playoff chances still out there, it’s to be respected and commended regardless of how the season has gone thus far.
This Jets team now has a chance to show Jets fans that they hear their cries, they feel their pain, they still have fight in them, they won’t quit regardless how blooded and beaten they seemed at times this season. A loser can still win and be respected depending on how much heart and soul they put into their fight just remember (if you’re a boxing fan) how you felt about the loser of each of the Mickey Ward and Arturo Gatti fights. We all know what it will take in order for the Jets to somehow pull a post season run out of their hats, offense playing much better than they have and even the defense stepping up even more than they already have thus far but why do we need to talk specifics when it comes to the Jets? The Jets know what they have inside of each and every one of them. They know if they have or don’t have what it takes in order to play like they have something to prove, they know that regardless of what they lack in talent they can make up for in heart, hard work, commitment and dedication. They know that they owe a fan base that has been loyal to them, a fan base that puts every bit of their emotions and finances into what some has called a “bad product” this season. There’s a re-write to this horribly written script that is called the “Jets Season” that needs to take place and once you’re in the playoffs, that rewrite is possible, a re-write of your entire season isn’t just a re-write but a full re-write and re-shoot all in one. The Jets know that they have one last chance to show the world just how fast one can really heal after getting battered and bruised and left for dead. No one is expecting miracles, at least this guy isn’t but I am expecting the Jets to look up the word “Inspired” and implement it into their gameplan for the rest of the season because anything less than Inspired football at this point for THIS team and it shows the fan base that they’ve looked up the word “Quit” and decided to implement that word instead.
