As the mid-season mark approaches the Jets have been like the stock market, up and down. The opening week offensive explosion was both unexpected and encouraging. That is until the offense mustered up only 10 points and 210 total yards versus an aging Pittsburgh defense then got shut out by the 49ers two weeks later. Then again Gang Green has lost to three good teams (Pitt, NE, 49ers) and beat three average teams (Miami, Buffalo, Colts) so a 3-3 record is appropriate. Losing the best defender on the roster and maybe the league in Revis makes the prognosis seem bleak despite being at .500.
