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 ..
