Nothing like a little smack talk to fire up both teams for an upcoming game but this week needs to end. The longer the Jets have a chance to give quotes the worse it is going to get.
We have all heard the Cro and Rex quotes talking about Brady and at first I was a little annoyed. I didn’t understand how the Jets could talk nonsense after they lost by 42 points to the Pats 5 weeks earlier but the more I thought about it I was able to come to a couple of conclusions.
This is what the Jets wanted to be. US against them. They wanted to be feared and hated with the hopes that with other teams and media coming down on them they would become even stronger as a unit and believe in themselves. They went 11-5…..I guess it worked.
Second thing is maybe Rex wanted Cro to rattle the cage. The schemes that Jets came up with the last time the Jets played them were god awful. The offense was not playing their normal game of running the ball and small dunks to Keller and the Defense was lost. Maybe they needed something to build around. For example, knowing Brady will now try to humiliate Cromartie the defensive coordinator and Rex can build defensive plays around those assumptions.
We can’t be sure but either way I hope the Jets know what they are doing.
