New York Jets End Season On A High As Spoilers
They say to the victor goes the spoils. Well for the New York Jets, Sunday’s win against the Miami Dolphins at SunLife Stadium was exactly that. The Dolphins had an opportunity to play their way into the playoffs over the last two weeks and fell flat on their faces.
The Jets put together one last effort for the 2013 regular season and eliminated the Dolphins from playoff contention. Quarterback Geno Smith played smart, the defense made some huge stops and head coach Rex Ryan put together a sound game that essentially saved his job.
Their play calling wasn’t too outlandish, Geno Smith didn’t force the ball, and Dee Millner looked as if he was finally worth a first-round pick on defense. This team was expected to do little the whole season. Many have said that this may be Ryan’s best coaching job based on the year he had prior and roster of guys he was given this season.
With many players such as Santonio Holmes and Ed Reed highly doubtful to return for the 2014 campaign, this game was their opportunity to leave it all out on the field, and they did. So many times in the past, the Dolphins were the ones to play spoiler for the Jets, and redemption was finally found on the other side in Week 17.
The offseason questions will now come about. Ryan’s job was first in line and according to owner Woody Johnson, he will be staying. Smith deserves some consistency, so I believe this is a smart move on all accounts to keep the coaching staff intact. What about the future of the running game, the offensive line and the wideouts? In past articles, I begged for John Idzik to focus on offense in the offseason. We’ll see if that happens.
As much as people will say that this season was “typical” for the Jets, it did have its ups and downs, and they were able to spoil someone else’s fun at the end of the day — that’s all that matters at this point.
