Raiders Will Provide A Litmus Test

Recommended Posts

Jets did what they should have today.  They beat one of the worst teams in the league.  The Darnold looked good, the offensive line with Compton and Lewis appeared to be improved.  TE Griffin and CB Austin are nice surprises and look to be future contributors.  

The apparent step forward may just be a mirage.  A product of a struggling team looking well against an even worse team...

The Raiders will be a bona fied litmus test for the Jets...

Anyone care to offer predictions for how that one will go ???

Tricky match-up. I think the Raiders will shred our secondary. 

Our best chance is for the offense to play well. Their defense is meh at best.

If Sam can have another good game, we have a chance. Also, an early game on the east coast for the Raiders is never easy. I would lean Okaland, but I don't have a strong feeling either way. 

They Jets have the tools to move the ball and score points on the Raiders defense  if the o-line plays well, but perhaps not enough to outscore a hot Derek Carr and the Raiders. I think the game comes down to Greg Williams vs. Chuky. A big play on special teams either way could also make the difference.

The great offense that scored 14 points against the Bengals today?

True that... They didn't look too impressive vs. the Bengals.

Im honestly a bit confused here. I really dont mind the thought of players looking good, though we played against struggling teams over the past 3 weeks, while getting thoroughly handled by the Dolphins. 

What im more confused about is this "bona fied litmus test" position when it comes to the Jets facing the Raiders. 

What is the test here exactly? Lets say that they win. What does that say?

Is is a decent indicator that they are improving.  We know the Giants and Redskins are two of the worst teams in the league.  Not much to learn from a win against that level of opposition.  We know the Raiders are in the middle of the pack and they have a good qb and a productive offense.  If they can manage a win against a decent team, we can conclude that the Jets are not the absolute dumpster fire that they appeared to be three weeks ago

We gotta piss in a cup or something to get thru the gates on Sunday? What's this all about?  I'm with Le'Veon....no more tests!

Piss and the Jets ???  Brings me all the way back to Shae Stadium.   My father started taking me to games back in 1980 when I was just a pup.  Our tickets were in the mezzanines.  Back then at Shae, it was a much different experience from being at MetLife Stadium.  At Shae circa 1980, there were drunks all over the stadium.  Fights would be breaking out everywhere.  There were guys that looked like Rocky's pal Pauley.  They all had paper bags with a bottle of booze to sip on, and they all yelled out the same thing at the players.... "YOU BUM !!!! YOU BUM !!!" At a game in December, I even saw two drunken guys dressed as Santa Claus having a fist fight over who was the real Santa...  And PISS... Yes... PISS.  If you went out on the concourse in the mezzanines during half time, you had to make sure you didn't get too close to the outside wall.  There were drunks that would PISS off of the upper deck.  You'd get splashed by the streams of PISS that would be cascading down. I wont even go into what the bathrooms were like...

How's that for a litmus test ???

You see @THE BARON ? I really wasnt trying to be an ass, a hater or pessimistic for no reason brother. You're probably wondering how the hell I knew that the Jets would do exactly what I said above. Well when you're a Jets fan for decades and you've stopped being sucked in emotionally, you get to view things as they really are and you can see how the Jets constantly set us up for stuff like this. 

 

You have to admit, I literally called this exactly the way it would ultimately happen...even down to the complete and utter blowout of the Raiders. Bro, the Jets WILL ALWAYS  find ways to be Jetsy.

I watch them, but I stopped lying to myself years ago when it comes to this team. Nothing has changed. The Jets make the Johnson's money. There is no true competent effort to make this a winning franchise. 

 

This is a bad football team, and has been for years, and years. Hopefully it changes with JD, but never get sucked in because of 2 wins against terrible teams. The Jets will find a way to completely break your heart. 

 

The only person who seen what I was saying was @The Crusher

 

 

 

 

I dig.  I have been a Jet fan for over 30 years.  I know where you are coming from.   Agree on JD.   I'm glad the Jets have him.  I'm sure you know what my concern is.  Will Johnson let him do his job ?

Then you've been a fan longer than I have. Im almost jealous that your faith in this team is still that strong. 

It went downhill with me during that 2015 season. That's when I finally came to grips with what this organization is.

 

They have had management problems since Sonny Werblin left.  Mr Hess was by all accounts a fantastic person and brilliant business man, but he really wasn't a football man.  It was up  and down until he handed the team off to the Tuna.  Woody came into the picture and it has been constant mismanagement. Bad management guarantees a lot of ups and downs but mostly downs.   Our hope now is that Douglas is left alone by Johnson to do his job.
