A 10-9 loss was not the way the Jets faithful wanted to begin the season.  But, based on the way Gang Green played, it did, however, seem to be the way the team wanted to begin the season.  I listened to some of it on the radio on my way home from a professional association dinner and was appalled at all the penalties — and that was just in the first half.

But you don’t want to hear me rant.’s Steve Politi says it much better than I can:

At least we know what to call the sequel to Hard Knocks. Coming this fall on HBO … Hard to Watch!

Except there is no film editor in the world who can polish this turd. All that talking. All that hype. All those promises and proclamations and chest pounding for the past eight months.

For this?

The Jets offense was not just a little bit bad in this humbling 10-9 loss to Baltimore last night. It was bring-in-Brooks-Bollinger bad. It was get-nine-yards-on-fourth-and-10 bad.

It was forget-the-playoffs-much-less-the-Super-Bowl bad.

And, to add injury to insult, Kris Jenkins is out for the season.

To quote Lady Catherine de Bourgh, “I am most seriously displeased.”
