Rex Ryan makes ex-Jets DL Leger Douzable captain this week
Sep 15, 2016, 11:57
But, on offense, more times than not he looks like he doesn't know what he is doing. He has been forever branded the Scarlet "J" for being a - gasp! - journeyman quarterback for the past 11 years.
If you think he stinks, you'll think he stinks today, tomorrow and the next day. Fitzpatrick would go on to throw two more interceptions in a nightmare of a fourth quarter, the Jets would go on to lose, 22-17, and miss the playoffs for the fifth straight season - despite finishing 10-6. He understands and accepts that reality. Bowles and the Jets will finally get the monkey off their back that is Rex and the Buffalo Bills.
"Last year, I thought it was different", Ryan said. "I really enjoy playing still, so that's where I am for now". If Watkins is healthy, the Jets can't have a third consecutive game, dating back to Watkins in week 17 past year, in which they're completely unable to stop an opponent's aerial attack despite having just one proven playmaker at wide receiver.
The strength of the Jets defense is up front with Mo Wilkerson one of the best defensive linemen in the league.
Certainly not for a guy who has no track record, and who you have no idea what he'll do under center. After looking pathetic in the Bills' season opener Sunday - mustering just 148 yards of offense, the lowest total the franchise has generated in almost a decade - the Jets come to town Thursday in a must-win game for both teams. We could be honest, too.
The self-deprecating Fitzpatrick acknowledged his career numbers against Ryan aren't good, but he noted his overall stats "aren't competing with Hall of Famers". Fitzpatrick has struggled badly when playing against Ryan and the Bills, so look for NY to rely heavily on a running game consisting of Matt Forte and Bilal Powell.
STREAKS, STATS AND NOTES - Bills have won past five, including season-ending win in January to eliminate Jets from playoff contention. His quarterback rating in those two losses: 49.9.
This week's Bills-Jets matchup is the first intra-divisional game of the season, and the first chance for the Bills or the Jets to separate themselves from the pack. Fitzpatrick's admission that he bet on himself by signing a one-year, $12 million deal this offseason put the bulls-eye squarely on him.
The NFL schedule makers didn't do the Jets any favors with the early portion of their slate, as their first seven games feature six teams that made the playoffs last season, and the Buffalo Bills - the same squad that essentially knocked Gang Green out of playoff contention in Week 17. His brother is a great coordinator, so he's a smart guy and they study just like we do. It's not just him. While their offense is not explosive, it should hold the upper hand in what promises to be a defensive struggle.
It's no secret that quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick is the man of the hour. Fitzpatrick, of course, can't be anchored by the numbers.
A fearsome front seven from the Jets is the more likely reason for Ryan's zipped lips after a poor showing from the Bills offensive line against the last week Ravens in both the rushing and passing game.
