As the Jets year comes to a miserable end, the team tries to end the tragedy that once was considered to be a hopeful season. On Sunday, the Jets will face the also struggling 2-10 Jaguars.
With the possibility of a new Jets quarterback out of the picture, Mark Sanchez will retake the turf and start under center as he has all year – in spite of all the angry fans. This may not be a horrible decision as it will be interesting to see how Sanchez reacts to riding the bench for the first time in his career. He will most likely have to play without Dustin Keller and will be without receivers Stephen Hill and Clyde Gates.
I can’t leave out the woes of the horrid offensive line that seems to struggle with keeping even a fly out of the pocket.
The Jets defense, however, has held its ground as of late, as demonstrated last week against the Cardinals. Antonio Cromartie has done a great job at taking on some of the best wide receivers in the league. Between the Jets defense and the struggling, MJD-less Jaguar offense, I don’t see a heavy threat coming toward the Jets on Sunday.
While it is hard to even imagine a loss to Chad Henne and the Jags, I can’t give the Jets offense to much leeway. The December to remember will proceed tomorrow with a 17 to 14 Jets win.
