With the letdown the Jets supplied us with earlier this week when us fans were actually expecting good things, it’s a sad event to have to return to the film.  Yet the season goes on, and if any Jets’ season was going to be a bumpy one, it’s the 2013 Jets.  You have to roll with the punches when you’re starting a dominant defense opposite of a rookie quarterback, and that’s exactly what the Jets will need to do to bounce back.

This Titans’ game exposed the Jets significantly, however.  Holes that weren’t so apparent are now ever-so evident, and adjustments need to be made.  Some players have played well overall and maintained their strong performances even in a disgusting loss, but most haven’t.  With the depressing film on the back-burner, it’s time to dissect the loss.

The Jets somehow managed to make a game close that was, at times, utter domination in their favor in their 27-20 win against the Buffalo Bills, sending them to 2-1 on the season.  In a tough division match-up that saw two rookie quarterbacks have totally different performances, an explosive offense for the Jets, and nearly thirty total penalties, we sure have a lot to review.

It may be early in the season, but it is never too early to start thinking about what kind of direction the Jets will need to take in next year’s draft.

So far, the jets have gotten some solid production out of positions that were supposed to be huge weakness, while some former strengths have fallen back into the “needy” category. Let’s take a look at which positions need an infusion of young talent the most:

Jets-Buccaneers Review: The Great, Good, Bad, and the Ugly

The Jets have certainly supplied us fans with heart-stopping moments over the years, and yesterday didn’t disappoint.  A last second field goal from the heroic Nick Folk ended another fairy tale win to open up the season, with the score 18-17.  A win is a win, and there’s much to like from the effort.  However, the Jets have mountains to climb before they become a dangerous threat in the AFC in 2013.  Let’s take another look at who impressed and those who didn’t in yesterday’s entertainment.
