Following an area of turbulence caused by the defeat against New England the week before, which had plunged into a negative balance, the Jets would straighten the neck Monday night. Mission accomplished in a win without beating its wings against the pathetic Miami Dolphins. You made the check-list after a flight on board. Fasten your seat belts!
Not easy to resist the media pressure of New York, especially when the coach Rex Ryan announced before the start of the season the team will win the Super Bowl! The Jets have relearned this never-ending story in the weeks that followed their good first game against Dallas (and Rex's twin brother, Rob, coach of the Cowboys defense). For after this episode, the team faltered to move to a negative balance (2v-3d) within the scope of a third defeat in a row - the ultimate outrage - against their archrivals, the New England Patriots. Worse, the tension in the locker room had leaked, involving the harmony of the workforce. Therefore no question of falling into a trap game against the Miami Dolphins calamitous (0v-4d), the other historic rival, in the hyper-publicized Monday Night Football yesterday.
Welcome sign, and is rare in the US sports, the fans gave the voice from the beginning until MetLife Stadium in Manhattan, New Jersey, speaker of the teams of the metropolis, the Jets and Giants, and future host the Superbowl in 2014. A few hours after the Giants game yesterday, the highest capacity stadium in the NFL regular (82, 500 seats) was now adorned with the colors of the Jets. Of external illumination in corridors and land itself, through the locker room, white, blue and red roommates were therefore transferred to the green and white team's iconic bear, "Ed the fireman. " The stadium also reacts to the harangues fireman who knows definitively set fire by directing chants "JETS! Jets! Jets! Jets! ". Do not worry so level atmosphere, surrounded by the usual show excessive and accompanied by cheerleaders.
A victory hardly reassuring
In early game, quarterback Mark Sanchez - in its third year, crucial for a pitcher - concerned with three assists non-supplemented, particularly as the running game does not seem to have risen since last year. But the team will address these shortcomings later. First, an action provoking disbelief: cornerback Darrelle Revis intercepted the ball in his area, ensuring beats by dre that Brandon Marshall will score runs and... does not stop until the enemy lines! Interception and run 100 yards for a touchdown epic, the longest return in NFL this season.
Miami then commit incredible mistakes, including an action in which Marshall (who had promised to be "a monster" before the game) out of bounds after inexplicably took a pass which opened an avenue to the line. The Jets benefit in the second quarter-time with good passes from Sanchez to Santonio Holmes and Plaxico Burress, before the QB decides to close the quarter-time rushing TD by a convincing. It will also make a touchdown pass early in the fourth quarter to seal the match time. The premises will have even the semblance of a racing game with 74 yards for Greene (34 of his last action). Finally, Miami will literally nailed to the ground, like the poor man's Matt Moore, sacks four times. The Dolphins do more marked after the break, having recorded the score with two penalties throughout the match, which finished 24-6 with a clear but not very reassuring completely vis-à-vis the Jets, given weak opposition.
Rex Ryan makes Lievremont
For this victory is far from definitely boost the New York team. Certainly it is not completely realigned to panic in the race for Play-offs, but with ten games still to play in the season, it will provide another level of play if the number and the staff want to take their self-proclaimed status of future champions. In the locker room at the end of the game, Tomlinson admitted that "the team needed to regain his confidence, " even though he was satisfied with this "victory required. " The coach Rex Ryan, he, rather reminded Marc Lievremont after the France - Wales: "We needed a victory, even in the worst way, I'm just happy that we have been in one. "
As for tensions in the team, symbolized by an exchange between Holmes and scalded his teammate Moore, they have eased when Ryan sent the two players co-captains for the battery-or-face match start with the referee, and certainly after the victory. Mark Sanchez even declared: "I knew that laughing at a time. " As long as there are successful, then all is well. But do not depressurize the cabin certainly not before the last game of the season. And it would be that it ends with the trophy in his hands, as the Jets live by and for the prophecies of their coach megaphone. As an airline captain announced the destination before departure.
