New York Jets: Consistency Seems Impossible

NY Jets

The Star-Ledger-USA TODAY Sports

From doing the impossible in Atlanta to handing the Pittsburgh Steelers their first win of the season, the New York Jets still have a lot of work to do. Winnings games with a rookie QB in Geno Smith is hard enough so when he plays well, the rest of the offense and the defense have to be on top of their game.

Well, that has not been the case so far as the team’s record is dead even at 3-3. The defense has been making error after error week by week and this is causing Rex Ryan as well as the Jets nation to have a fit.

Football is one of the most difficult sports to play in: the physical and mental toll it takes on the body and mind alike is already unbearable as is. To add the pressure of not making mistakes and trying to get to the opposing team’s end zone is asking too much of any team. Nonetheless, this team is relying on a first-year player to lead them to unbelievable glory.

The Super Bowl of 2014 will be played at MetLife Stadium, the home of the Jets and New York Giants. At 3-3, there is still a chance for Gang Green but for the Blue side of NY, that dream is all but gone with an 0-6 record. If any NY/NJ based team is going to make the dream a reality, it will be the Jets.

However, if we are being honest, there is a huge list of teams that can get there by bulldozing past them. Yes, their defense is amazing when it wants to be and the offense is all right … but without being consistent, winning games is nearly unfathomable.

The Jets will host the New England Patriots this Sunday at 1:00 p.m. EDT in a game that they will need to win. Can they do it? Yes. Will they be able to? Maybe. Stay tuned folks; it promises to be a good one as the last time they faced of at MetLife was on Thanksgiving where Mark Sanchez and his Jets suffered a horrendous loss at home by a score of 49-19.

Yeah, you can bet anything that this is certainly about revenge and their much-needed fourth win of the year.
