Damn, how can I say this. Hmmm...well, I'll say the Jets' season is over. Done. Finished. However you wanna say it, we're toast.
The win against Miami in week 3 boosted their morale, and going into Buffalo week 4 they were confident enough. But, of course, they lose to the Bills, 17-14, and drop to 1-3.
And this week, in the New York vs. New York battle for citywide bragging rights, we lose AGAIN, 35-24. The Giants just about manhandled the Jets, even if the score might not show it, in some eyes.
The big story of this game was young Aaron Ross. Ross picked off two Chad Pennington passes in the fourth quarter, one which led to an Eli Manning touchdown pass, and the other which was returned for a touchdown. It's especially impressive because Pennington is one of the league's most accurate passers.
The Jets scored only 1 offensive touchdown, a pass from Pennington to Brad Smith in the corner of the end zone.
I think it is safe to say no one expected the Jets to start out this slow. Sure, some games losses are inevitable, such as the Patriots, but the loss to the Bills was really not acceptable.
Basically, one New York team's season is over, and the other's is just getting started. Well, at least the Jets had one bright spot. Long live Jonathan Vilma.
