Now Commenting On:

Always caustic, it looks like Jason Whitlock is at it again on Fox Sports, writing that Roger Goodell should cancel the Jets season.

Cancel the Jets because they’re a disgrace, a blight on the good name of the NFL, the worst thing to happen to America’s pastime since the Worldwide Leader aired 11 dramatic episodes of “Playmakers.”
For Jets fans, it's a pretty rough read.  But as far as whether or not my "outrage meter" is in the red ... meh.  I read Whitlock regularly and its just in his nature to blast stuff.  So when I read this, I'm not really shocked, dismayed or offended.  Whitlock is nothing if not sarcastic, and while I might not share in the joke, in some ways he has a point.  Conventional logic points to the notion that the Jets are now going to bomb the rest of the season, and that they might do it in style with a juicy quarterback controversy to boot.

Of course, that's why they play the games.  I'm not comparing this team to the Packers that won the Super Bowl a few years ago, but they had so many injuries over the course of that season their injured reserve list was incredibly stacked.  Could the Jets find a way to rally?  We're going to find out tonight if they've got any fight left in them ..
