Seriously, whats going on here? Why are we losing to, or letting inferior teams hang with, or beat us? Are we really just an overrated football team that is going to get shredded when it comes playoff team? Somehow I dont think so, I think we can hang with the elite teams. Before we can do that though I think we need to find our identity and go back to the drawing board with our offensive line because whatever we are doing right now is not working. I also think willie is an elite back but we need to find a good balance between him and Najeh. Another thing that we lack is a consistently productive pass rush, whats with these young qb's like cutler and clemens carving us up? I dont know but something has to be done.:2cents:

every year they do this....play down to the level of a crappy team (Raiders, Texans of recent years).......Guess that makes them fly under the radar again, huh?

one would hope we'd have gotten over that cowher-esque type of mentality...well actually I think this year it's just that our OL sucks so bad that we are actually not able to do any better whereas in the past we had great OL's but we just got big heads heading into easy games and then we ended up losing.

yeah I'd say we are definitely flying WAY under the radar now...

The teams also had an extra week to prepare... they took advantage and changed things up a bit.

At least we know they will respond next week against Miami on Monday night. After every loss so far this year they have come back in a big way including shutting out the Seahawks :bigthumb: Yes this was a crap game and you can say the Steelers played down, but we can't take credit from the Jets because maybe they played up to the Steelers level :dunno: CBS put up a stat of the Jets last 6 games... they were in every single game coming into the fourth quarter, so it's really hard to give them any discredit because they have been knocking at the door.

I cant agree with this not being our year though, its only mid-season and we still are 7-3, I guess the off-season is too damn long and boring for me to give up hope yet.:lol: I think this was a bad day for us, but I am still optimistic that we can still have a successful campaign. We need to do some serious work on our pathetic offensive line though, because they way they played was flat out OFFENSIVE

You can juggle around the whole O-line with the players available on the roster and the line will still be below average. 10 weeks into the season and there is enough film on the weakness of the line play that the sack and pressure total on Ben is gonna only increase. If Ben did not show great escapability the sack totals would of been doubled each game.
At this rate Ben will not make it through the whole season and our running game will continue to deminish and the losses will continue.
I hope I'm wrong but I don't see this team turning it around and it's gonna be a long 6 game stretch before the playoffs, if we make it there.:banging:
