After that first game, the sports pundits (Mike Francesa especially comes to mind) seemed to be having a lot of fun deriding Rex Ryan's hubris. The Jets offense was a joke. Getting rid of Jones and Faneca were huge mistakes. The Patriots and Dolphins were going to send the Jets to 0-3 and their season to an early exit -- well let's just say, there is a lot of egg on many a face.
And all of this without Revis in the lineup the past two weeks.
But in the interests of avoiding the need to remove an omelet from your own hair in a future week - it might be wise now to keep the glee to a minimum. So far, this season seems to be all about "any given Sunday" all across the NFL -- lets see where the Jets stand at the beginning of January.
There is something definitely different about this team. For the first time in a long time, I didn't panic when the other team (Bills) marched down the field for a quick TD after a defensive breakdown. I knew the Jets had it in hand.
I feel good about next weeks game against the Vikes, especially after getting Revis back.

Nah! Class bullies, maybe. They won a gimme game and would have lost against a real QB. They are on the rise, I do admit, but are a couple of building blocks away from being real contenders. Who knows. There have been lesser teams reach the playoffs and end up winning it all. Most definitely a dark horse!
