Jets think 6-0 the rest of the way will do it

At 5-5 and already conceding the AFC East to the Patriots, the talk around the Jets this week is all about going 6-0 the rest of the way to ensure a wild card berth.

Six-and-0,” Jets linebacker Calvin Pace told the New York Daily News. “Sometimes when you get caught losing to teams you’re not supposed to lose to, you end up kicking yourself in the butt saying, ‘Man, we put ourselves behind the eight-ball. These are games we should win.’”

The Jets get the Bills at home on Sunday, then they play the Redskins, Chiefs, Eagles, Giants and Dolphins the rest of the way. With that schedule, it’s not unreasonable to think they could win them all.

“I feel like we do have to win these last six games,” Jets running back LaDainian Tomlinson said. “That would put us at 11-5; that should be enough to get us in. You look at 10-6 and I don’t know if that is enough.”

There’s really no way to know if 10-6 will be good enough until we see how the season plays out. Last year the two AFC wild cards were 12-4 and 11-5. The year before that, two 9-7 teams were the two wild cards. The year before that the 11-5 Patriots missed the playoffs.

So it’s possible that 6-0 the rest of the way won’t be good enough. But Jets coach Rex Ryan likes the way his players are laying it out: Win six in a row and get to the playoffs.

“Well, that’s what you want the mentality to be, the mindset to be,” Ryan said. “I don’t know if that’s factual or not. I feel pretty good about getting in there at 5-1, but 6-0 sounds good. [If] we go 6-0, we’ll get it in there.”

  1. “I feel pretty good about getting in there at 5-1, but 6-0 sounds good. [If] we go 6-0, we’ll get it in there.”

    That’s what she said.

  2. They also guarantied a Superbowl win the last 2 seasons.

    Bills – W
    Chiefs – W
    Eagles – L
    Giants – L
    Dolphins – L

    Better luck next year….

  3. All I have to say is neither the harbaugh’s or the ryan’s our the coach of our pittsburgh steelers.

  4. @purpleattack. Ya. Fortunately for you he’s not your coach. With his championship games in his first two years and all. Harbaugh is much more accomplished. Ya.

  5. Rex Ryan on Suh “He can come to NY and play, were willing to look past his actions.”

    -Ryan and the Jets dont even know when to stay out of other teams piles of BS. They gravitate like flies on…well…you get the point

    Most people here pretty much realize the name of the coach of the Steelers. We know who the Ryans and Harbaughs cach for. But thanks for your important information, and your butchering of the English language.

  7. Honestly, 6-0 the rest of the way probably will get it done. It won’t be easy for them but I’ve seen it before.

  8. Someone tell Rex and his players its actually 10-0 they will have to go to win a championship !

  9. Going 6-0 the rest of the way is way too late because it would have started by upgrading the Offense Coordinator position. When it comes to the offensive side if the ball, Rex Ryan is still a “youmg” head coach who’ll eventually regret not addressing this issue much,much earlier.

  10. Someone (like Dean Vernon Wormer) needs to tell Rex, “Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life, son.”

    The good teams play it one game at a time, and don’t talk BS about other teams on their schedule. Not Rexxy!

    6-0 would be a great idea, if the Jets had a quarterback, and an effective running back. I have no idea where the points would come from for them to go 6-0.

  11. Calvin Pace should just go ahead and name those teams they lost to that they are “not supposed to lose to”. That would be entertainment!

  12. If they finish out 4-2 I’ll be surprised. I don’t expect the Jets to make the playoffs this year, which is too bad because they’re great to watch when they’re a wildcard on the road.

  13. The Jets must feel the teams ahead of them, as of now, for the wild card will roll over and die. They have the same attitude win out and in.

  14. OK. If there’s a chance J-E-T-S can go 6-0 that means I have a chance to out-invest Warren Buffett, Make Anjelina show Brad the door, and inject myself into contention for the nomination of the Republican presidential race.

    What in God’s name are they putting in the water at Jets camp!

  15. It’s really just going 5-0 after they pick up their automatic win against Buffalo.

    Very possible, if not very probable.

  16. Pretty easy to look back and “shoulda won those games”
    Pretty easy to say “should win these games”
    Pretty hard to take anything the New York Jokes say seriously

  17. @jetfan28…

    Harbaugh has a higher winning % than Rex as a head coach .672 vs .595

    The last time I checked, you don’t win anything for coming in 3rd or 4th so what exactly has Rex accomplished that’s greater than Harbaugh?

    It’s great to make a couple appearances in the AFC Championship but until you actually win an AFC Championship, you really can’t talk. It sure sounds foolish for #3 or #4 to talk smack to #5 or #6, doesn’t it?

  18. Hey dumb effing morons, how many AFC Title games have your teams made the last two years without one home playoff game? That’s what I thought. We’ve beat Brady, Manning, Palmer, and Rivers, yet people still act like this team missed the playoffs the last two years. Here’s the harsh reality, you’re all idiots.

    KEEP HATING. LOLOLOLOLOLOL. YOU KNOW WE’RE A THREAT. Now rub our feet.

  19. well i see them as an 8-8 team, and losing their last 3 after getting theiri fans’ hopes up the next 3 weeks…

    but lets play along. of course most teams will improve their lot if they win their last 6 games. the trick is… doing it.

    houston is up by 2 on the titans and will remain that way. so, no titans as a wild card opponent.

    i see 2-3 teams finishing 8-8 in the west. so, no wild card opponent from the west.

    buffalo may win 1 more game, so no othr wild card from the east.

    that leaves the north. pitt and balto will both likely finish 12-4, and that means pitt is WC#1.

    what will cincinnati do… i say they finish 11.5 and with an 8-4 conference record will beat out the streaking jets and their 7-5 conference record.

    the jets need to do more than win their last 6. they need help. the bottom line in these situations is that the team in question has to win out. and they need all the teams that they cant catch, or cant realistically catch, to win out. thus neutralizing all competitors for a possible #6 wild card.

    the jets have buf, @was, kc, @phi, nyg, @mia.

    the bengals have cle, @pit, hou, @stl, ari, bal.

    i suggest the jets last 3 opponents will WANT those games.

    i also suggest balto wont NEED that last game.

  20. So .. after the Jets lose Sunday, will we be reading next week :

    “Jets think 5-0 the rest of the way will do it.”

  21. This is a steeler based site. And if anyone writes anything against the steelers it gets yanked.
    Time after time.
    Mods will probably yank this one which makes this a biased site.
    Unbeleivable people that try to remove the first ammendment right.
    And just can’t except facts when presented.

    Hope the Jets go 6-0 so the Ravens will beat them twice the same way as they beat the stealers twice.
    Mods can’t handle that.

    Nothing is guaranteed in this league buddy.

  23. The Dolphins are one real good QB from being a decent team, and they are looking to the draft for that QB, however I don’t expect them to beat the Pats on Christmas eve, then on New Years day at Miami I can only hope they beat the New Jersey jets and knock them out of the post season. Bill

  24. Love how the Jets fans think getting to two AFC title games in a row is some kind of feat to be proud of. That got the Bills real far in the 90s. Nobody even remembers it. All that matters is you win and in case your delusion is keeping you from remembering….you lost both. Get a grip.

  25. At a minimum they will go 5-1 which would result in a 10-6 record and a playoff berth.

    vs. Bills – W
    vs. Redskins – W
    vs. Chiefs – W
    vs. Eagles – ?
    vs. Giants – W
    vs. Dolphins – W

    If noone remembers it then why are you be mentioning it? Because we DON’T remember?

    ———————————————————- Wow! Beating Brady, Manning, Palmer and Rivers. I guess that means you won the Super Bowl. No, I don’t remember that, maybe it was the AFC Title game you won. No, don’t remember that one either. Maybe the AFC East? Nope. Tell me, just exactly what did the Jets win?

  28. I realize the Jests are in the media capital of America! But, really? Before their last loss they were going to win the division and the super bowl. No excuses for my Bill’s, it’s a pro game stuff happens, but I’ll put their playing w/heart up against the Jests playing w/their mouths any day!!

  29. @goawayeverybody, that is absolutely insane. They cant beat any team that has a halfway decent defense. sanchez averages 1 td a game and right over 200 yds. thats not going to beat the eagles, or the giants, or the dolphins. the redskins rebounded somewhat last week as well.
    the jets will go 8-8, 9-7 if they get lucky.

  31. im sorry i must have come in late. did i miss reading that the jets got another quarterback to take them 6-0 thru the rest of the season? who did they get? oh mark brunell! good luck with that!

  32. they may think beating miami in miami that last weekend will be easy but it won’t. Beating the jets and keeping them out of the playoffs will be motivation enough for the phins.

  33. Yeah, why wouldn’t you expect a 5-5 to suddenly go 6-0. Makes perfect sense to me.

    Let me go pop in that Denver game one more time.

  34. I’m starting to think MDS is the best writer here. He always points out relevant facts, like how the 11-5 Patriots didn’t make the playoffs. goawayeverybody must have a magical crystal ball that lets him see into the future and assert that 10-6 will make it this year.

    And once again, steelersownyou does a disservice to any respectable Steelers fans out there by representing them as inbred half-wit morons that can’t even coherently string a couple words together. Way to make your point, dummy.

  35. A couple months ago the Jets were talking Super Bowl. Now the Jets have lowered their goal to just make the playoffs. Then again the Jets barely made the playoffs each of the past 2 seasons.

  36. @blackbug99

    I don’t, because I’ll type out a long winded reply as to why someones opinion has no basis in fact with stats, no profanity, the works, and it won’t get posted, but someone being totally disrespectful and classless will always make it through. Nobody actually talks about Pro Football here, because only troll comments make it through moderation.

  37. To: nyjalleffingday, I appreciate your pain and the reality that this isn’t a fact based venue…..But, for this topic…The Jets open their mouths, again! I did give you a thumbs up for just being a smart commentator!

  38. I’m so sick of this team talking trash about how they’re gonna win the Super Bowl. They aren’t winning 6 games in a row. They aren’t making the playoffs. I think it’s time for a new coach and a new QB. They aren’t even over hyped for talent. They’re over hyped for having a trash talking, over rated coach. His father sucked, his brother sucks, and he sucks. End of story.

  39. @redbull the blame for the jets offensive struggles runs deeper than sanchez (even though i believe he is horrible). the Jags can make the same argument you did for the Jets, for their team, therefore it is nonsense.

    @nyjallday @blackbug99
    I couldnt agree more about the moderating here, it is ridiculously bad. there is no terms of use, or posting rules or guidelines anywhere. they just have a few mods watching that try to keep up with it as best they can. This is what they have told me anyways. They even blocked my ip at one point, until i just did a clean reboot.

  40. >That defense is very capable of going 6-0

    Wouldn’t that require Revis and Cromartie to at least try to tackle big guys?

    Sorry Green Bay you have to give back the title because you barely made the playoffs.

  43. Congrats for beating palmer, manning, brady and rivers. how many rings? Being a ravens fan, ive had that crap shoved down my throat for 3 years, and to a certain degree, its true, you havent won anything except an award for the leagues most annoying team in the NFL. Ohhh, and good luck coming into baltimore if you even dream of getting that far, cuz we’ll pumble you

  45. New England fans once again just can’t wait for a Jets headline. It’s embarrassing how much time you pretentious mules spend hating the Jets. Go worry about going 13-3 and being humiliated in the first round of the playoffs. Again. At home. LOSERS.

  46. No way are the Jets going 6-0 or to the Super Bowl. Maybe Rex should learn how to coach and not just run his mouth

  47. @jetsfan28
    Stop acting like those championship games mean something. Nobody remembers 2nd place, let alone 3rd and 4th. Especially when you won’t even make the playoffs this year. We own you and we made your quarterback look like he wanted to cry. I actually like Rex and seriously appreciate all he did for us here, and would even pull for him and Bart if the Ravens were not in it…unfortunately, their moron fans prevent me from doing so…but oh yeah, the Ravens are ALWAYS in it!!
