  1. Going into the bye after beating Buffalo is huge... for us fans!  2 weeks to feel even better about the incredible first half of the season, and more importantly how well set-up this team is for the long term.

    This has been the most exciting Jet's season since 2015... and this time the direction of the team feels more sustainable.

    This is also an incredibly young group of rookies with talent and personalities that make it easy to root for them.  It's easy to root for G Wilson, Breece Hall (come back strong), Sauce Gardner, Jermaine Johnson, Michael Clemons, Max Mitchell...

    In fact, the majority of the players on the team have endeared themselves to fans either through their deeds on the field and/or their camaraderie and comments off the field.

    First time in a long time for me, that fans of other teams have been impressed with the direction of the Jets... and not in a patronizing way.

    At the bye - there a several things that I'm excited about... and this may be controversial... but it feels like the first half of this season might be supporting broader alignment amongst fans:

    • An exceptionally competent GM, with a strong vision and process?!
    • A professional coaching staff; a staff that makes adjustments, takes risks, and has solid game management?!
    • A deep and stacked defensive line that actually produces sacks and pressures?! 
    • A secondary that actually intercepts passes, led by an exceptionally talented rookie and a great FA signing?!
    • Dynamic play making weapons on offense?
    • A functional offensive line despite losing/missing 4 tackles and best offensive linemen?!
    • Special teams that produce big moments / value?!
    • Decent depth of talent in the roster?!
    • Strong winning team culture and belief...with actual WINs?!

    Kid looked much better today than he has at any time this year. Can he turn it around completely? Time will tell as consistency is the mark of a legit NFL QB. but any of us who bashed the past couple weeks deserves to eat their crow here, at least for this week he served it up to us. Let's hope he keeps it up. I'll be happy to have been wrong about him

    Excited to eat crow this week!

    And always happy when Jets win.

  4. Have critiqued Zach hard.  Extremely excited about his play today.

    He generated HOPE that he can be the guy by not doing the things that have been extremely concerning in his first 5 games of 2022.

    For the first time this season it feels like he managed a complete game.

    Zach will come out swinging against Buffalo.  He'll be stepping up in the pocket and throwing on early downs against the Bills' zone coverage and carving it up.  The defense will do what we did to Josh in our last game against Allen - hold him below 55% completion percentage and frustrate him.  The difference is this Sunday we'll sack him and force at least 1 turnover.

    The Jets win and eliminate the foul taste from the loss to the Pats.  We'll rejoice at Zach's 2 TDs and 0 turnovers, 63% completion rate, and 247 yds in the air.  Enter into the bye on a high note, and somehow at the top of the division.

    The possibilities are delicious... if Zach is a good QB on Sunday... 

    Based on the 5 games he's played thus far, the above feels a little like a drug fueled fantasy... but as a Jets fan, I prefer the above over another week of below replacement level QB play.  I just don't have the confidence to say its a high probability outcome... probably less than 5%.

     

     

     

    Zach did what I didn't think he could.  He played like a good QB today.

    On the Zach bandwagon for next 2 weeks!  His play today provided much needed renewed hope!
