Brandon Marshall thinks Jets are in “perfect position”

Wide receiver Brandon Marshall didn’t play for the Jets when Rex Ryan was the team’s head coach, but he seems to be taking a page from Ryan’s book in the wake of the team’s third straight loss.

After the Bills lost two games to open the season, Ryan said that a Week Three game against the Cardinals gave Buffalo a chance to face the “exact team” they needed to face to start moving in the right direction. There was some scoffing, but the Bills routed the Cardinals and have reeled off two more wins to give their season a much better look than many anticipated it would have after an 0-2 start.

The 1-4 Jets could use the same kind of turnaround and they will get a chance to try to start one against those same Cardinals in Week Six.

“This is a perfect position for us,” Marshall said, via the New York Post. “We have great talent in this room. We’re one of the most talented teams in the league. So, we can do one or two things — we can fold it up and cry, or we can stick together and continue to work. I’m already over this loss. We’re going to turn this around. I promise you that. Starting right now. I promise you that.”

The Jets will need to be better across the board than they were against the Steelers on Sunday if they’re going to get a win that offers the prospect of turning around a rough start to the season. If they can’t, the climb from 1-5 may be too steep for even Marshall’s sunny outlook.

    For Deshone Kizer or Deshaun Watson? Sure you guys will probably get your pick at one of them.

    There’s “coach/team speak” and then there’s talking like an idiot. How is anything about their current situation “perfect”?

    The Jets were always my #2 team to root for behind the Vikings, but I feel like Marshall is either trying to insult the intelligence of the fans, or is totally delusional. They’re definitely not the worst team in the league, but they’re also far from the best.

    I guess I just don’t recognize the same silver lining they’re apparently seeing.

    Marshall is a beast…..the TD catch he made yesterday was outstanding. Too bad he plays for the Jets.

    Perfect position? For what? First pick in the draft?

    Remeber when the Jets beat the Bills on Thursday night? Remeber how great Fitz was? Remeber that early September Super Bowl? I bet those member berries are so sweet. Hey, atleast you’re not Miami. Clevland atleast has an excuse.

    Wha??? I can appreciate remaining positive, but already at 1-4, it’s all over.

    Marshall is seemingly as delusional as the insufferable Jets fan in sheep’s clothing ‘patsfan4life’ troll.

    If the “Perfect Position” is grabbing your ankles….then Brandon is correct!

    All of that hope and tough talk before the season started…..where did that go?

    The other Brandon Marshalls running around inside this numbskull’s head all want to know which one of them said this.

    Lol career nutcase thinks 1-4 is “perfect position”

    When the Pats are sitting at 4-1 with Brady back.

    Yeah, that’s just a spectacular place to be in lolz

    The Jets are done! Two FGs and a TD! That’s it! The Steelers are a great teat overall but their defense ia average at best and this QB can only put up 13 points. The Jets have scored 33 points in the last three games you are not winning with that point output. They are at the Cardinals next week that’s a lost, this team might win six games this season. It’s time to make a change if nothing else to shake things up I get Marshall loyalty to Fitz but the good of the team should override personal preferences. The teal has to to come first, even if Geno can’t do it what do you have to lose at this point.

    Wow….the coach says they need to learn to win again and now this…thank you to the grabbing ankles poster, you beat me to the punch.

    they are a talented team, more so than their record indicates. All they need is constancy at the QB position.

    Yeah, they are constantly BAD ……. and not at just the QB position.

    Perfect position for a top 5 draft choice.
