The Emperor Has No Clothes

If you’re like most NFL fans, you know the Jets suck. Bad.

They’re 3 and 6, and really should be 2 and 6 as they got lucky beating the Dolphins the first time.

Everyone across the league is laughing at them, but what does Rex Ryan — their coach — say?

Well, after being hit with the award of most over-rated coach in the NFL, Ryan has the audacity to say, “At the end of the year, we’ll see who’s overrated.”  (Yep, he really said that. Just hit that link in this paragraph if you don’t believe me…)

And then on this same team, we have starting QB Mark Sanchez.

Surely, he sees something different than his delusional coach, right?

Nope. Sanchez said this whopper in conference call with reporters yesterday: “I feel like we’re close.” Yep, and that quote is from the New York Jets website itself. (Link here.)

Sorry, Mark. But you’re not close. Your team sucks, and you’re playing terrible yourself. Here’s a few quotes closer to reality about you…

From the New York Post, and this writer was one of your fans:

“I have been in Sanchez’s corner all the way, because I have seen him rise to the big playoff occasions, and because of my reservations about Tebow, who should be a running back. I have only now wavered in my belief that he gives the Jets the best chance to win. Can Tebow do much worse than 9-for-22 for 124 yards with one horrific interception and one fumble? Probably. Can Tebow do better than three wins in his last 12 games? Possibly. Sanchez is 11-14 over his last 25 games. His regression is regressing. He cannot possibly lead or inspire playing like this.”

From Opposing Views:

“Now, I know that there is more to the Jets struggles than Mark Sanchez, but yesterday Sanchez was a miserable 9 for 22 with a fumble, interception in the end zone, and once again, 0 points. Sanchez has now completed less than 50% of his passes in 5 of the Jets 9 games (4 of those games being losses coincidentally). Not only that, but after his two turnovers yesterday, Sanchez now has 17 in 9 games. … Sanchez is turning the ball over at a sickening rate. … Sanchez is struggling in the red zone.”

There’s really not much more to say. It doesn’t matter what the coach or QB says. The Jets are terrible.

And I think Coach Ryan is refusing to play Tebow because he’s stubborn, and he doesn’t want to admit that bringing Tebow on the team was a really stupid idea. One of the most collosally stupid NFL moves that I’ve seen in a long time. (About as stupid as bringing on an offensive coordinator that you don’t like, which Rex Ryan also managed to do.)

And, no, before you go there, I’m not one of Tim Tebow’s religious fanatical fans.

P.S. Please accept the greatest gift I can give.

P.P.S. Thanks to all who continue to make my novels a success. I seriously couldn’t have done it with everyone’s support. I’m excited to say that Little Man, and the Dixon County War  has gone as high as No. 16 on the Amazon UK Paid List (see here and here). My second novel, Sold Outhas also done well, also, going as high as No. 81 on the Amazon Paid List for the category of War (see here and here). Learn more about both books here.
