Latest Jets Twitter reactions heading into Week 1
By Todd Gerstenhaber
Heading into their Week 1 matchup against the Buffalo Bills, here are the latest reactions on Twitter for the New York Jets.
Here we are again. The best time of the year if you are a fan of the New York Jets and just football in general. The time for reactions, overreactions, analyses, and over-analyses. You either have no hope, or an irrational amount of hope.
This is all reflected in the days leading up to the season opener, and no forum does a better job of displaying all of this than the great Twitter. So for all you #JetsTwitter fans out there, here are the highlights leading into Week 1:

As you may have heard, the Jets re-signed an old friend, wide receiver Jeremy Kerley. While many parts of this signing are puzzling, one thing that has come up is how current starting wide receiver Robby Anderson wears the No. 11. Will Robby give up his number for the Jets veteran?
Brandon Marshall is asked if Eli Manning is best QB he's played with. "He has a long way to go to dethrone Ryan Fitzpatrick. We’ll see."

In a simpler Jets time, you may not have laughed out loud at this. Fans in the euphoric aftermath of the 2015 Week 16 win against the New England Patriots (my all-time favorite regular season game), may have been convinced that “Fitzmagic” was indeed better than the two-time Super Bowl champ. My, how the mighty have fallen.

You can find Jets fans on both sides of one hot-button issue: to tank, or not to tank. Should the team unintentionally-intentionally lose games just to get a top draft pick? Many fans think so, and see teams like the Buffalo Bills, who have cleaned house in a similar manner to the Jets, and the Jacksonville Jaguars, with a quarterback who isn’t progressing, as the biggest threats to the Jets’ quest to get the top pick. Luckily, the Jets get to face their supposed tanking opponent this Sunday.

This has been an age-old question on #JetsTwitter. There have been several hats that players and coaches have worn, that are seemingly not available to the public, yet displayed in public forums, such as this press conference from head coach Todd Bowles. So #JetsTwitter: where can I get this hat (I’m legitimately curious)?

To say #JetsTwitter went haywire after Josh Rosen tore up the field for UCLA against Texas A&M over the weekend would be an understatement. Beat writer Manish Mehta was feeding the hype train, as Jets fans wanted to be #ChosenForRosen.

Fans who are fully embracing the supposed tanking plan, or just feel that the Jets are #ChosenForRosen, can order a customized Jets jersey featuring their favorite quarterback to never don the green and white.
