2. Yes, it's the same old Jets. (Jets vs. Seahawks)
Unless you are a throwback coach, you can't come to a podium and say your team stinks and they're done. No matter how true it is, you just can say that. However, when you are wallowing in the bottom quadrant of almost every statistic known to man and beast, you shouldn't say you have a good feeling about your team either.
That's what Jets head coach Rex Ryan does though. No matter how psychopathic he sounds, he will always tell you good things about the worst players on his team. It may be good for morale the first 33 times, but after that you just sound like you are completely out of touch with reality.
Ryan said this week that he likes where his team is headed. He meant that in the figurative sense. Literally, his team is headed to Seattle to face the Seahawks and another beating at the hands of another better team.
The thing that Seattle does best is run the ball. Running back Marshawn Lynch ran for three straight 100+ yard games coming into this one. He is second in the NFL with 881 yards with a 4.8 yards per carry average. Guess what the Jets suck at? That's right, stopping stopping the run.
The Jets are at the bottom of the league in stopping the run. They are also near the bottom of the league in rushing themselves. That's a bad combination, especially when everyone knows it.
Have you heard this one before? "We are going to have some new things planned to Tim Tebow". That was also Ryan this week. Or it could have been last week. Or the week before. Or the month before that. He says the same thing almost every game, yet Tebow still runs the same two plays every game.
The Jets still have about three or so games before they are mathematically out of playoff contention. Lets see if Ryan repeats the same speech until that happens. If he were a throwback coach he would stop wasting everyone's time.
