The New York Jets need to move on from their embarrassing loss in Week 3 and focus on what exactly they want their identity to be.

What is in the past is over as at this very moment, enough time has gone by to forget what happened last week against the Kansas City Chiefs. Heading into Week 4, the New York Jets welcome the Seattle Seahawks to MetLife Stadium for a home game.

It’s not easy playing in the city that never sleeps. The great people of New York have a tough time accepting failure and well, they expect nothing but winning results from their sports teams. Sure, it might seem silly in the grand scheme of things, but fans of New York team expect the best game in, game out.

For fans of the Jets, they deserved so much better than the efforts of the team last week. They looked confused, frustrated, and defeated throughout their matchup. It was pathetic and well, a gut check that this team needed to show it has the talent and leadership to play better than that.

Sure, this game against the Seahawks is important for the wins and losses column but it’s far greater than that. When will this team step up and play with consistent ruthless aggression?

This is a game that will truly prove the identity of the Jets.

Will they bounce back after their embarrassing loss?

Can the Jets rise to the occasion and put up a fight against a tough team in front of their home crowd?

At the end of the day, this is a huge test for the character, integrity, and to show what this team is really made out of.

Even head coach Todd Bowles knows what is at stake in this pivotal matchup. Here is what he said, via the Media Relations Department of the Jets:

On if he thinks it takes a couple of games to know the identity of his team…

In the beginning of the season it does, whether you win five in a row or lose five in a row, it still takes a couple of games to get your identity. I think we know who we are. We just have to be who we are.

Overall, the Jets need to play up to their potential. They’re better than what they portrayed last week and well, if they want to be taken seriously this season, need to win this game so greatly, it makes an example out of the Seahawks. The Jets can do it, they just need to be what they are.
