The Jets’ ineptitude reminds Rich Cimini of ESPNNewYork.com of the Rich Kotite days. Cimini writes that baseball has the Mendoza line and every bad NFL season has the “Kotite” line – a point where you cross over from a try-hard, hard-luck loser to a team drowning in its own awfulness. Here’s more on Gang Green…
- The Jets’ only choice is to bench sophomore Geno Smith and roll with free agent pickup Michael Vick, opines Steve Serby of the New York Post. Vick isn’t going to be the Jets savior, but he does give Gang Green their best chance to win. The veteran lost two fumbles and threw an interception under duress, but he still gave the Jets offense some life with his improvisational running.
- The feeling in the Jets organization is that the only way Geno Smith starts vs the Chiefs next week is if coach Rex Ryan is pressured to do so by GM John Idzik, tweets Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News. One has to imagine that Ryan feels both pressure to win but also pressure to appease Idzik, who will at least have some say in whether he returns next season.
- Hank Gola of the Daily News wonders how Percy Harvin will fit in with the Jets going forward based on his unspectacular debut against the Bills. There’s question as to whether Harvin can still be a deep threat in Gola’s mind since speed alone doesn’t guarantee that you’ll get open. Harvin didn’t create a whole lot of seperation on Sunday, which was a disatrous showing for the Jets in all facets of the game.
