Jets Resume Their Slide In Power Rankings

As expected, the loss to the Miami Dolphins lowered the Gang Green's position in the latest power rankings from the top 3 sports websites. ESPN had them down 3 spots (from #15 to #18). CBS Sports lowered the Jets' stock by 4 points (from #15 to #19). FOX Sports had the Jets down by 2 spots (from #13 to #15).

Here's what the top 3 websites had to say about the Jets:

ESPN:  If the Jets were to win a national lottery, the winning ticket would fly out of their office and land with the Dolphins.

FOX Sports: So much for that all-NYC Super Bowl, eh? Now the Giants have dropped three straight, and for the Jets it's four losses in their last five games. Maybe the Jets' defenders should stop talking so much junk about Miami's wildcat offense, considering the Dolphins scored 31 and 30 in two wins over the Jets. The rest of the league? Just 12 points per game. Granted, Ted Ginn's kick returns factored in, but maybe it's time to go the anti-Rex Ryan route with the press clippings.

CBS Sports: There is no way they should have lost to the Dolphins at home, but at 4-4 they have been way too inconsistent. How about some special-teams work this week?

  Week 1 Week 2 Week 3 Week 4 Week 5 Week 6 Week 7 Week 8 Week 9
ESPN 23 16 8 6 5 9 18 15 18
FOX Sports 20 14 5 5 5 8 11 13  15
CBS Sports 24 16 6 5 6 13 16 15  19

    I guess no one at Fox actually watched the game.

    Yeah that was terrible. 30 points given up by our D eh?

    Wow, Fox really dropped the ball on that analysis. The "Wildcat" looked like a kitten (6 total yards!!!) on Sunday. Still, they do have the Jets ranked higher than the other two...go figure.

    To quote Rex Ryan, "boo hoo hoo."

    They should be higher.

  • NYjets2335 – 11/08/2009 03:19:49 am

    ummm no southparkfanciz they shouldn't. If you lose to the dolphins twice you deserve to be ranked that low. With the exception of the NE game the Jets have been playing terrible in their division games
