I am not going to be cliché and say the famous five letters that Aaron Rodgers once quoted last season, yet I have two words that consist of six letters for all my New York Jet fans…S-T-O-P I-T!
Look guys, I understand we are very passionate about our team and we are looking to win at any cost, with anyone, and anything. But we cannot become fair-weather fans.
I am going to be honest, I haven’t written anything about the New York Jets because I was honestly afraid I was going to jinx the 2-0 start that was not anticipated, but after all the backlash from losing one game, I had to tell the fans to stop it. What do I mean by that, simply this, stop making excuses and illogical ideas for the Jets to make transactions/transfers/moves to make the team so much more improved.
For example, if I hear that Ryan Fitzpatrick was “exposed” or the defense was “exposed” I might just question your standpoint as a fan. Honestly we all knew what we were going to walk into and watch when Ryan was announced the starter, a game manager. To put it in a better term for my Jets fans, another Chad Pennington, which there is no problem with that, but everyone knew that Chad was not going to win every game when it was his time to shine.
The defense being exposed…really? So I punt return and two touchdowns in the first half from an offense that was projected to be the highest-scoring offense in the league…exposed??? What about the amount of points the Eagles scored in the second half…zero!
Also please, please, please, if everyone who reads this can at least take this one perspective then I will be perfectly happy. PLEASE STOP SAYING WE NEED GENO SMITH AFTER ONE LOSS! Goodness gracious guys, you guys want the quarterback who is about as immature as a seven-year-old, and has the leadership of Sarah Palin running for president…none.
I am not going to want a quarterback who was benched for throwing FOUR interceptions in the first half of a game. While Ryan threw three picks, two were tipped and one was just a bad pass, but are we going to classify as Brandon Marshall the worst wide receiver ever and bench him to make Devin Smith the starter because of the mistake that he made…NO! So please do not mention Geno starting…ever.
This may seem like a rant, but it is only because so many fans become so emotional and upset at the fact that they are unable to call the shots and make the big deals…remember, knowing yourself, you probably wanted Robert Griffin III to come play for the New York Jets.
If you guys agree or have any questions, comments, concerns, or disagree, let me know in the comments below, I would be more the happy to continue the conversation with my readers!
