This speech was delivered the day after the Jets suffered an embarrassing 30-9 loss to a divisional rival at home, dropping them to 3-5 and basically destroying any playoff hopes still remaining.
“We have to be all in,” Ryan said. “The only chance we have is we are 100% all in and let’s put it out there. If we don’t play better you can forget about anything. I want them to step away (during the bye week) and come back with that mentality.”
The term “All-In” reminds me of the pre-playoff speech that Gian-Paul Gonzalez, a New Jersey High-School Teacher, gave to the Giants during a game in late December 2011.If you want to go “All-In” on the Jets this week look to bet on NFL Football here. Needless to say the speech worked, as it became the rallying cry for the Giants and led them to a Super Bowl victory.
Over the next few games the Jets MUST put it all in and risk everything. Just go for it, forget formalities. There will be nothing left to lose.
The jets have lost four of the last five games and are sitting at the very bottom of the AFC East. So what exactly do they need to do to be all in?
Well for starters, Rex Ryan needs to make a final quarterback decision and stick to it.
I’m sure everyone has noticed that while Sanchez is out on the field the entire game throwing the ball into the hands of the opposing team’s defense, Tebow is patiently waiting on the sideline, helmet and pads on, ready to go in and win the game.
The problem with Sanchez is that he must be surrounded by elite players in order for him to succeed.
If he is protected for 10 seconds, given plenty of time to throw the ball to a selection of elite players he is then capable of actually completing passes and taking the offense down the field.
Right now Sanchez ranks last, yes I said LAST, in the NFL for completion rate, with 52.9%, he is 30th in passer rating at 72.8% and 28th in yards per attempt at a pathetic 6.4yds.
Is this all Sanchez’s fault?
I simply do not understand why the Jets went so far out of their way to bring Tebow in. They have managed to find countless ways not to use him in scenarios that he would be perfect for.
For a team that claims winning is the most important thing, they sure do a very good job at losing.
Come on Jets, get it together!
