    Sorry, folks, but after last night's game, I have to say that the NY Jets don't entirely suck. They came into Foxboro and played a hard-nosed, disciplined football game.

    The reasons?

    1) addition by subtraction - the Jets shut their pie-holes leading up to this game and did not create distractions for themselves,
    2) Holmes and Revis being gone put more pressure where it needed to be - on the coaches and players to step up "do their jobs," and
    3) the Jets played within their limitations - other than the Dennard interception on a pass Sanchez just can't throw, the Jets did not try to do things outside the abilities of its skill players on offense, and the relative lack of weakness of its front seven on defense.

    They looked prepared for the Patriots on both sides of the ball and played them statistically even in every category, including the score. So for this week, my hat is off to the Jets.

    Now, that being said, one sign of buffoonery and I'll be back on the Official Jets Suck thread helping out where I can.

    The JETS have sucked for 43 years and counting. It's not a week to week or seasonal thing. It's an overall organizationally based reality. SOJ. :bricks:

    This thread is definitely PS worthy material.

    The opening post was not intended to diminish the NY Jets impressive body of work at sucking for the past four-plus decades. That speaks for itself.

    It was meant to point out that we all saw a very different Jets team on the field last night than anticipated. It also signifies, to me at least, that the Patriots' win was more encouraging than it might have otherwise been.

    Sorry, but the Jets do suck. The Patriots just aren't a well rounded football team at the moment. IMO, the injuries didn't make a difference. Sanchez would have passed on this secondary even with Chung and Gregory. They looked the same as they did all season. Luckily, the front seven manned up and took control in overtime.

    The Jets team that was on the field last night was a product of our awful defense. I'm not even sure why they *tried* to run the ball.

    The JEST played well for the JEST. That said, we did play sucky ourselves, and the JEST did still lose.

    So to the point: Yes, the JEST did suck. We just did too.

    The pats always have a tough time against a Ryan defense, allowing Lil' Marky to look like one of the Mannings is what bothers me this morning, last night and probably the rest of the week.

    We absolutely smoked the Jets on two occasions last year. The offense simply didn't play well enough and consistently enough until the closing minutes and continuously shot themselves in the foot. The OL was having a lot of trouble opening holes in the running game and pass protecting (limited sacks because Brady was either able to evade the pass rush or get the ball out before they got there), receivers were dropping open passes (Lloyd anyone?) or not getting open, and the running backs were having trouble getting it to the outside.

    I agree they're not as bad as I thought they were. It has more to do with the Houston game than yesterday though where they hung right with them. Right now I think any team who's not Buffalo's awful run D or a bottom 5 team can take us to the wire.

    I think it is more a case of the the Patriots defense and offense sucking, in pretty much every game, in the 4th quarter.

    Although I will give props to their defense. Holding Brady and co to 15 regulation points.

    Their fan base had braced themselves for a Patriots blowout becasue the taking heads and the betting line said so.

    The Jets were so close to a win but ending up losing. This must have really hurt them and their fans more than if the expected blowout had occured. I'm so gald it turned out that way. I love it so.

    The Jets do suck, yesterday, the day before yesterday, and all the days going forward until the end of time

    NO......... They still suck.

    One game (that they lost) will never fully drain enough of the "unsuck" out of them. Suchage aplenty remains in that wretched franchise.

    The Patriots suck slightly less than the NYJ, hence the OT game at home yesterday. Yippee, the Pats beat a team that allegedly sucks by a fg in OT and scored a whopping, what, 17 pts on offense with Brady and all his supposed weapons? Does anyone seriously think that this Patriots team can go on the road and win a playoff game - because they will not be getting a bye if they even make the playoffs. Right now the Patriots are a marginal 4-3 team that cannot hold double digit leads at home or on the road. They are an offense that cannot score in the 4th quarter. They are a defense that plays vanilla all game and allows 20 yard pass plays 3, 4, 5 times a game. this is FACT, and it cannot be argued by even the biggest fanboy fantasy geek. Maybe things will get better, but we're seeing an offense going in reverse and a defense that really shows no signs of imrpoving. Everyone has injuries. The NYJ were starting moe, larry, and curley at receiver and they still managed to carve the Pats pass defense. Color me very unimpressed with this edition of the New England Patriots. As someone said earlier, this offense is starting to look exactly like the 2009 offense, which resulted in one of the most embarrassing home playoff losses in league history....again, color me unimpressed...thanks Bill for being stubborn and refusing to change when change is needed....People still getting Chandler Jones's Hall of Fame jacket ready????

    To quote some Latin:

    Sicut erat in principio, et nunc et semper, et in saecula saeculorum.

    The JEST suck. . . . as it was in the beginning, and now and always, ever world without end.

    The Jets suck. The game being close is more of an indication of where we are right now as a team.

    McDaniels has somehow managed to take a finely tuned offensive machine and made it into one without an identity. This O should be about Welker + the double TEs with a topping of the running game and Lloyd. Just run the ******* plays for our best weapons. The O is the most talented in the NFL but even it can't overcome McDaniels outsmarting himself.


    The D stinks and i'm not even going to expect more out of them this year, we need the O to control games.

    You're a good poster, Go, but this thread sucks (just like the Green Beans). You didn't expect them to put up a strong fight? Divisional games are great equalizers.

    The Jets have come around the last two weeks. I thought Sanchez looked great against the Colts, who are not great but aren't terrible either.

    The bottom line is that everything gets magnified with the Jets. They were story number 1 in training camp, for reasons I can't completely understand.

    They have been inconsistent, but they have talent. Some of the balls that Sanchez threw yesterday were fantastic. When the camera pans to a receiver and he looks "wide open" it's always tempting to say, "the defense sucks," but the reality is that on virtually every play, a receiver will have some room. The key to being a good QB is putting the ball on him right then.

    Don't get me wrong, our pass defense does suck. But Sanchez was finding some very tight holes. In a parity-filled AFC, the Jets can make some noise. They have the 49ers behind them and we still have to play them.

    The Jets do suck. That game should not have been close. They have an inaccurate QB, a disjointed, do-nothing wildcat package that disrupts their regular offense and does nothing for them, an average run defense and a marginal secondary that has to mug receivers in order to keep them from making big plays. We should have run away with it, but for various reasons, did not. Hopefully, on Thanksgiving we will have our act together and hand them their lunch (or their turkey dinner) like we should have yesterday.
