The Jets have built themselves a hole in the AFC East.
Not only do they trail the Patriots by two games, they are also looking up at the 4-1 Bills. That isn’t foremost on the Jets’ minds at this point.
“I can’t worry about [Buffalo],” Derrick Mason told Dan Wetzel of Yahoo! Sports.
“They’ve got good wings,” Plaxico Burress helpfully added.
“We just lost to New England,” Mason said. “Now we have to move on to Miami. . . . I don’t even know when we play the Bills.”
Mason, who only took six snaps in Sunday’s game and is falling well short of expectations, is smart to not worry about other teams. The Jets need to find something they do well other than defend the pass.
The three-game losing streak had Rex Ryan searching for answers Sunday evening and cooling his usual bravado. Mark Sanchez patted Ryan on the butt as the coach left his press conference, like the big man needed a pick-me-up.
“I hate seeing Rex like that,” Sanchez said.
We agree. Sad Rex Ryan is sorta depressing.
