Bowles vs Rex 0-1. Soon to be 0-2. There's no way the jets are winning in Buffalo in January. Rex wasn't that bad of a coach. You all were screaming for his head, but he actually was the best coach in team history since Parcells. He's got the most playoff victories of any Jets HC ever. He had multiple teams fighting over him the minute he was fired.
there were many problems with last year's team, the head coach wasn't a problem. He was an asset.
The Jets don't have an offensive player as dynamic as Deandre Hopkins, and they don't have a defender as good as JJ Watt. Losing Mangold and revis during the game is a huge hit. TJ Yates vs a hurt Fitz isn't that big of an advantage.
just to review Sheldon Richardson didn't play Nick Mangold left the game with a hand injury (and has been playing hurt for weeks) Darrelle Revis left the game with a concussion. Chris Ivory is clearly out of gas. Brandon Marshall is playing hurt. Cromartie is also clearly playing hurt. Ryan Fitzpatrick had surgery last friday (and didn't miss a game) Nick Folk is on the IR Willie Colon is on the IR. Antonio Allen (who would have been extremely useful vs Gronk) hasn't played all year
... I think it's fair to say this team has been affected by injuries.
