LYONS: No Jumping Off the Bandwagon

Posted by jetsstaff on December 1, 2008 – 10:47 am

I know everyone is disappointed in the performance Sunday against the Broncos. I am. The weather was bad, the officiating was bad, the Jets were bad.

But it’s just one game in a long season of 16 games. The Jets still are 8-4, still in first place in the AFC East and control their own destiny.

If I wanted to beat the Jets up after their loss to Denver, where would I start? But I won’t. They have played amazing football for the last five weeks. They gave all of us a reason to believe and to be proud to be a Jets fan.

I’ve talked about it and heard about it everywhere I went for the last five weeks. Jets jerseys were everywhere, being worn by both young and old. Closet Jets fans were back on the streets with stories like they were actually playing the games themselves.

Eddie the plumber said to me this week, "Dude, the Jets are for real." Fred from Kings Park Meat Market, a long-time Jets fan, was smiling ear to ear about the Jets when I saw him on Friday, even with Vin the Giants fan sitting in the corner wearing last year’s Super Bowl T-shirt and hat, laughing out loud. Then there was Mike, who said, "I can finally wear my Jets sweatshirt again." Mike from the fish market, a true Jets fan, said it best, plain and simple — "Go Jets."

And of course the best was Mr. Lips, an older gentleman and a true soccer fan who knows "NOTHING" about football, and I really mean "NOTHING." But he goes out and buys a Jets folding chair for the soccer field. Mr. Lips, God bless him, just wanted to be part of this Jets season.

Get the picture? We were all on the Jets bandwagon, and now is not the time to jump off of it because of one bad game. They’re still in first place.

I’ve said since the beginning of the season the magical number was 10 wins, now maybe 11, to make it to the playoffs. Well, the Jets have eight wins after three quarters of the 16-week season. With four games left, they have to win two to get to 10 or three to be safe. After they stubbed their toe against Oakland, they won five in a row. What makes you believe they can’t do it again? They can if they play from the shoulders up, play smart, play fast, and play physical.

Now it’s time to see the finish line, four games left. The Patriots are looking over your shoulder, the Dolphins are looking over your shoulder. Don’t forget that if they’re looking over your shoulder they’re behind you. You can keep it that way by just winning. Yesterday is gone, there’s nothing you can do to get back your performance against Denver. Move on to San Fran. Forget about it. You’ve worked too hard to get where you are. Don’t let it slip away. WIN!!!!!!!

    c’mon Marty,we deserve better from you. The JETS just stunk up the place. Who cares about the last 5 weeks. The JETYS just didn’t come ready to play. I blame Mangini for that.

RAY again you sound foolish Bill P in 98 didn’t have half the talent we have your points are getting more & more desperate fans are not idiots

    This team has tremendous character so I don’t forsee any major collapse. Truth is we still have some holes to fill . We are not as bad as we showed in Oak. & we are not as good as we showed in Tenn.We need to fight to be great, we can’t just show up. I for one will support this team win, lose or draw they have earned that. The playoffs we’ll address in a few weeks.

    Marty, I couldn’t say it better myself. It happens to the best of teams. Now they must correct their mistakes and beat the 49er’s. The one thing about this loss that bothers me is that it probably cost them the 2nd seed. Just focus on winning the AFC EAST. GO JETS!!!!

    Thanks Randy – I agree totally. It’s not perfection but how you respond to adversity that counts. We fans should not abandon our team because of a bad game. I hope no one would judge me that way. Go Jets!!!

    Who is SHOTTY trying to fool-the players, the fans?? Worst playcalling I’ve seen all year, not just on offense, but defense too! This team is rock solid on paper, yet against the Brocos D ranked 28th in nearly every category you put up 17 pts 43/19 pass/rush–even though TJ was averaging over 8 yards per carry?? Could Shotty be more “tricky” it sure worked out well especially on the reverse!

    Ray mike MC Drew & company.. Want 2 explain game plan specific 2 me or would you like me 2 explain .. Let me, from what I’ve seen we plan for specific teams strengths then try & execute the plan .. When we can’t no plan B or C always lose those games Game plan specific enough for you.. We’re almost 100% healthy & lose to deaminated teams there are no excuses just shame in my eyes

  14. By CD on Dec 1, 2008 | Reply

    I agree. Keep your heads up. My prediction was 11/5. Hopefully, it will be 12/4. The Jets and the fans have alot to be proud of. Don’t forget where they were last year at this time. The Jets do have character and the proper motives.The Broncos, on the other hand,do not. They won’t last long if thats how they are going to play the game. They are not for real. Shameful Broncos!
    Go Jets!!!

    This team will never win with Mangini. The best thing that could happen is lose the next 4 games and get into the Bill Cowher sweepstakes. Then maybe we can finally win that elusive Super Bowl.

    come on marty , no I have watched to many next year seasons , you go out and get these veteran players who any game might be their last , you have to win now ,this year and championship teams dont lose to awful teams and denver is awful and oakland is and chargers are awful too!!

  19. By Marty Lyons on Dec 1, 2008 | Reply

    Not close so far, jet jeff. This season the Jets are on track for 4,262 gross yards (not including sacks) and 3,986 net yards. The franchise records for most passing yards allowed in a season were set in 1986 (4,567 gross, 4,389 net) and the 1979 totals were also both higher than this year’s pace. And keep in mind that the Chargers and Seahawks have allowed more net yards this season, not that that’s much consolation.

    Mike the Ex Jet Vet , reading your posts (or should I say deciphering your posts, I need a decoder, rosetta stone, german Enigma or something) I often wonder why all the shame & anger after a jet loss.There is nothing that I see that would cause me to feel anything other than disappointment.We have players & coaches that are very easy to root for, look around the league I’m sure you’ll agree.

  21. By Drew on Dec 1, 2008 | Reply

    I am not blaming this loss on anything other than getting outplayed or outcoached. i am not sure what your reading Ex. To say that Miller should still be here after that loss is just the icing on another ridiculous post to go along with your 1998 wasnt as talented as this team. Please do yourself a favor and get a clue bud. I defend my team and coach and you continue to trash them.

    Hey Marty, you’re absolutely right.There is NO QUIT in me in my JETS.I put the uniform on every GAMEDAY WIN,LOSE ,or DRAW.What I see is a team(Jets) with an8-4 record and sole possession of !st place in the AFC East.Come on people,we had a letdown for ONE GAME.Theres not a team in the NFL that has’nt had a letdown this season.Lets see how many MOUTHS are running 4 weeks from now when we’re 12-4.

    No Fans aren’t mike ex, just you. You prove it with every misspelled word you type. You can’t even keep your own points straight. Bill P. lost to a team far worse than the team we faced yesterday. With a team that was very much in the same class as this one. So in essence his loss was worse. but keep the poor analogies coming, I need some good humor right now!

    What a missed opportunity we could have a 2 game lead on everyone with 4 games to go. The Pats could win out & so could Miami the only way we win the AFC east is TO WIN OUT ! 3 & 1 WE MIGHT NOT EVEN MAKE THE PLAYOFFS

  31. By Frank on Dec 1, 2008 | Reply

    Here it is in a nutshell. We go 1-3 vs. the AFC West which is the worst division in the NFL and win vs. KC by a prayer. The common denominator in those losses was the coaching staff trying to be too cute with the play calling, failing to make adjustments and not being prepared. Sorry but with a team as talented as this its unacceptable having these results. Mangini & Co. took a step back this week

  32. By Upstate Mike on Dec 1, 2008 | Reply

    Tom Spicer hit the nail on the head. Missed opportunity here with Miami and N.E. breathing down our necks. They can’t afford any more games like yesterday or we could get knocked right out of the playoffs. Outplayed and out coached yesterday, it was just bad all around. Time to tighten up and play with a vengeance again. I’ll still be here rooting, hoping and praying.

  33. By Skipper on Dec 1, 2008 | Reply

    I’m not that worried by New England, as I’m by Miami. If we finish same as New England, we will win the division (already have significantly better strength of victory), but if Miami wins out they will have better conf record. So the key game is week 17 at home against Miami!

    I have no confidence in this coaching staff 2 win out I hope we do .But I know this team & Organization … We’re not the jokes of the NFL for the lack of trying they worked very hard to get there .. Every good coach knows jets history & find a way to beat us ..With this lose again sets us back any1 watching the game seen a horrible display & lack of preparation of coaches & players

    I’m not mentioning the previous game anymore. Frank Gore is a stud, much like TJ. I’m not worried about the 49ers WR’s, we need to stop Gore. With that said, Hill is a good rookie QB who has consistently thrown for near 300 yards. We must shake him up early, and not allow running first downs. Tyler Thigpen made us look bad, we can’t let Hill show us up too. Win on Sunday!

    You guys who keep complaining about the coaching staff have no clue what you are talking about. The game plans these guys come up with are just fine, the players have to execute and perform up to their capability. When they don’t, the Jets lose.
    This team has a good chance to be playing deep into the playoffs but the onus is on the players, they have to perform.

    Mangini isnt the problem he shows some real brilliace, the last game was truly the broncos not playing all that amazing but the refs not seeing someones foot on the line reveiwing the play wich should have been overturned plus the Broncos cheating everytime Favre was about to burn them with no hudle plus the jets have to many key injuries right now.

    I agree – if we win out the rest of the way we win the division. Plain and simple. I know some hate for me to bring up the Giants but the facts speak for themselves-they started out undefeated until they ran into the CLEVELAND BROWNS! and got killed! However, since then, they have been undefeated and are poised to win their division. Moral – this lose brings us down to earth to finish strong!

You keep bashing people for defending the coaches when no one is defending them. But YOU lay zero blame on the players. So JC dropping passes is coaching, Elam’s attrocious tackling is coaching, Favre throwing

  46. By Ray on Dec 2, 2008 | Reply

    …five yard passes at JC’s feet and another pick down the sideline is coaching? No doubt coaches have their hand in this loss and no one has defended that. The play calling was about as bad as it gets. But your complaint? Mangini is chewing gum! Mangini doesn’t carry a clipboard! Mangini doesn’t have a meltdown on the sideline so we all can see he’s angry! Not one valid point in the bunch.

    I am not cutting any slack to Jets Pass Defense. But Tyler Thigpen is not that bad a QB for KC. We lost to chargers, it just our 3rd game. The loss that hurt are the ones to Oakland and Denver. Especially Denver, jets were not even close. Mangini is supposed to be a defensive coach.. protege of Bill Belichick. I dont see any innovation.. no blitz packages.. what the hell happened to run defense..

    Excellent Article Marty! The Jets have proven they can overcome disappointing losses. They have proven they are a team capable of beating any team in the NFL. It is clear we went into the Denver game overconfident and a serving of humble pie was needed. We got that pie at a bargain because we are STILL in first place and still control our own destiny. So lets stop pointing fingers and move on.

    I agree with you Marty. It was just one loss of the last 6 & they are still in 1st place. They figured out how to win & they will win again. Last Sunday, it just didn’t happen, next Sunday is a new game. We all have bad days. I am sure the few games Jets won last year made a few teams feel the same way some fans and players feel this week. But build a bridge & get over it. I love the Jets!

HE HAS TO DO THIS ASAP IN THE GAME PLANING THE REST OF THE WAY. IT SHOULD NOT TAKE GAME AFTER GAME TO SEE THIS. IT WORRIES ME ABOUT MANGINI’S ABILITY TO ADJUST QUICKLY TO STRATEGIES.

    In the books Favre’s two-yard TD to Coles against Tennessee is just a short pass. On the field it’s an amazing play, a last-second, across-the-body, pinpoint pass that Chad couldn’t have made in his best years. Sure Miami’s won some games — the same way Chad recently won with the Jets, squeaking it out in the last minute 17-12 or so against awful teams. Good luck with that in the playoffs!

    We have one bad game and the self loathing fans come out of their shells again… It’s shameful to watch after all these years. The Ken O’Briens, Vinny Testeverde’s and Chad Pennington’s never gave you as hopeful a season as this one and you want to turn your back on them now? We will hold the best conference record at the end of this season. Miami won’t even be a factor when we play. Chin up boys

    I’ve been watching the jets a long ,long time . The best I’ve seen them was under Parcells . That being said ,this team here under Mangini has got a shot. They still need a bigger running back, but they are doing fine with what they got. It does seem like they are playing smarter football. I would like to see some of those Parcells trick plays in the mix . That makes it more exciting to watch.

    I’m 50, had been a Packers fan since a little boy. I remember the Pack had a losing season almost every year, everyone allways laughed because I was a Pack fan. Then along came Brett , wasn’t long after Favre came everyone Quit Laughing. After watching Brett all those years I became a Favre fan. So now I’m for the JETS. If you wan’t to see how much Brett meant to the Pack, LOOK AT THEIR RECORD!!

    One bad game, were you not alive in 98 when we went to the AFC Champ game only to lose to the eventual Super Bowl Champs? Vinny had a great year and went to Hawaii. I was pretty hopeful then and again in 02 when we stomped the colts. Get your history down, then post

    Marty hits it on the nose. Three quarters of the season are under are belts. At 8-4 there is no reason to be worried or too concerned about last week. There is one quarter left (4 games). If we go .500 that means a ten win season. Going in to the year any Jet fan would have taken a 10-6 season. Now I also beleive with the Pats and Phins on our tails that 11 wins locks us in & maybe a home playoff

    We need to raise from the dead a new ;New York Sack Exchange again.Defense wins championships. I predict alot of quarterback sacks this sunday against the niners. ALOT !!

    I want the Jets to run the table. I think they have a realistic shot at running the table and finishing 12-4, equaling the best record in franchise history. I know the game against the Broncos was an abberation. With this Quarterback and running game and with a legit Tight End we can score 30 points a game. With David Harris coming back soon, the defense will return to a dominating unit. JETS!

    There is no reason we can’t go 12 & 4. This is our year to finally have a real shot at wining it all. The AFC is ours for the taking as there is no real dominate team standing in our way (see Tennesee week 12). JETS-GIANTS Super Bowl Baby!!!!
