I’m sitting here on a Sunday morning pondering the rest of the 2012 New York Jets season. I’m seriously wondering if this team can turn it around and I hate to say it, but they need to do something drastic to kick start the post-bye campaign. I’m going to be bold with my predictions. Remember, BOLD.
Would I have predicted these events at the beginning of the season, heck no, but I believe if the Jets have any chance of making the playoffs, they know what they have to do.
My BOLD Predictions
Tim Tebow WILL replace Mark Sanchez at starting QB before the 2012 season. Yeah I said it. It’s inevitable. I just don’t see the Jets running the table with Mark as QB and they definitely need a jolt of adrenaline and a major change. Rex will succumb to owner Woody Johnson, and we will see Tim under center and Mark on the bench.
The Jets will make the playoffs. The Jets are 3-5 and looking at the remaining schedule, they will play only one team that made the playoffs last year (the Patriots). I think if the Jets make a major change, to send a message to the team (see above), then I believe that they would pull off 5-6 wins which may be enough to make the playoffs.
Mike Tannenbaum will be Fired A lot of people are blaming Sanchez, Rex, Woody, you name it, but the finger needs to point to “Trader Mike”. It seems like the last two years Mike has been off his game struggling to surround his QB with talent. I know injuries happen, but the good GM’s have great depth. If the Jets fail to make the playoffs this year, Mr. T is toast.
