Inside the @Jetblue jets jet!
Jets head coach Rex Ryan
the jet report
I have been so busy with work and personally that it has been hard to get a good post up but the baby and wife are asleep and now is as good a time as ever.
Jets baby! I can’t believe it. I am, at the core,someone who hates winter. It gets too dark early, the cold, the misery, the wet socks etc. But the last two years man I don’t even notice January! The papers are full of positive stories on the Jets and the dream is still alive! The Jets can make it to the Super Bowl. There is just one more team to go.
As I had mentioned before the playoffs began it would have been great to have the Jets replay every team they had lost to in the regular season and right all the wrongs. The Ravens falling apart against Pittsburgh denied that from happening and at the end of the day I don’t really care. The Jets are still in it and from my perspective they have all the momentum. If I was the Steelers I would be scared.
I really think the Jets are going to win on Sunday. I am not saying because I love the Jets. I honestly feel that it is almost destiny. Three weeks ago the Jets were presented with an insane task. Beat Peyton on the road, Beat Brady on the road and then play two time Super Bowl QB Ben Roethlisberger just to get a chance to play in the Super Bowl. Two down and one more to go.
The Jets are starting to look like the team we thought they were. Dominant D, Offense that can explode at any moment and Super Bowl bound (almost). Sunday will have challenges because the Steelers are a team that has been here before. But I am completely confident in a win.
It will be a close one…..21 to 20.
Let’s hope this comes true and we are headed to Dallas.
“Our renegade drive”
Whatever he’s doing, it’s working. [Jets WR Braylon] Edwards never looked better than he did in Pittsburgh, making difficult catches over the middle. The most important reception was a 15-yarder on the Jets’ game-tying drive in the third quarter, a play in which he was drilled by Ryan Clark. The safety was penalized for an illegal hit, helmet to helmet.
Edwards called that his most satisfying play of the game, but not for the reason you might think. It had to do with music.
At the start of that drive, the PA system at Heinz Field blasted its traditional crowd favorite, “Renegade” by Styx — a hard-rocking song designed to fuel the Steelers’ defense. As a former Brown who played many times in Pittsburgh, Edwards was familiar with the “Renegade” anthem and warned his teammates to be ready.
“Usually, they scare a lot of teams with that gimmick,” Edwards said.
Not this time. The Jets marched 66 yards, scoring on Mark Sanchez’s seven-yard bootleg on fourth-and-1 — “Our renegade drive,” Edwards said with a grin.
Music to his ears. But he wonders how long the song will last.
