If this makes any sense: This was the Jets best loss of the season. Feel me?

The New York Jets lost their third game in a row and have been looking for some consistency from week to week. They are getting improved play from their defense and special teams but the offense is in a whirl wind. What’s going on with this team? Is it the O-line, the running backs, Mark Sanchez, the play calling or something else?
Oh and let’s not forget about the bad calls, but all teams get them and frankly it did not lose us the game yesterday.
The Refs were Bad, but We Lost the Game
As you are well aware, there have been many calls for Schotty’s head, Mark’s benching, and many questioning did Mr. T have a bad off-season signing depth to this team.
Of the last three games, I feel the most hope coming out of this loss. Yes, we lost another game but we were actually in this game and the offense showed some promise as opposed to the games against the Raiders and Ravens. Not to make an excuse for this team, but think about the last three away games we just played. All three are probably the most difficult to play on the road. In fact I would say they are the top three teams in the league where it’s difficult to pull out a victory.
Gleams of Hope
Shonn Greene ran once again with a purpose. He didn’t eclipse 100 yards, but he made every yard look like it was earned. He was smashing people again and plowing for those extra yards.
How valuable is Nick Mangold? Someone flipped a switch on the play of the O-line.
Nick Mangold is the Best Center in the League
Jeremy Kerly ended up in the game and told it was the Jets plan all week, but I’m not buying it. Derrick Mason pissed someone off, but it was great to see the youngster get his first touchdown.
Kerley Scored His 1st TD of His Career
Joe McKnight has turned a corner. He didn’t score this week, but boy did we find our replacement for Brad Smith on returns.
Jamaal Westerman stepped up in a big way to replace Bryan Thomas. Two sacks and many pressures on Tom Brady will get you in favor with Rex and the coaches.
Santonio Holmes has me worried. Yes he scored a TD, but I don’t think I’m digging his attitude. He’s the captain of the team, but is it me, does he act like a captain? He was one of 3 WR who allegedly called out Schotty to Rex before the game but all three are denying the meeting happened. Something is not adding up.
Strong character will be defined by short comings

Continuing with my funny feeling, I’m not feeling all that great about Derrick Mason. He was in only 6 snaps all game and the Jets claim that Kerley was the game plan, but something isn’t jiving to me. They claim that Derrick isn’t picking up the offense fast enough, but didn’t they run the same exact O in Baltimore. My gut tells me he pissed someone off, hope I’m wrong.
Derrick Mason went over the 12,000 receiving yard mark. He is the 18th player in NFL history to reach the mark

I want to be perfect on the wide receivers, SO, I’m not feeling good about Plaxico. He dropped 2 balls I remember, possibly 3, and he was targeted quit a bit. Was he a better replacement than Braylon Edwards? I’ll wait a couple of more games before I say anything on that.
Trash talk. I know this is Rex’s bread and butter, but trash talk only works when you are winning on a consistent level. With a three game losing streak, it may be time to close the mouths until we start winning again, but what do I know.
Is it Time to Shut Our Yaps?
Normally when an NFL player (current or legend) tweets me, it’s because I started the conversation. You can imagine my surprise when Joe answered a question I asked to no one in particular during the game.
