NEW YORK (AP) Comments on the New York Jets by the AP Pro32 panel (ranking in parentheses):
NEW YORK JETS (24)
Chris Berman (ESPN, 25) - Hard to duplicate that minute of football.
Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 26) - Thanksgiving exposed the Jets as pretenders not contenders.
Cris Collinsworth (NBC Sports, 24)
Rich Gannon (CBS Sports/SiriusXM NFL Radio, 22) - Hard to watch this outfit as they are now bad on defense as well.
Bob Glauber (Newsday, 25) - Even Fireman Ed can't bear to keep cheering for these guys. J-E-T-S, JETS! JETS! JETS! will never be the same without him.
Rick Gosselin (Dallas Morning News, 28) - The last time both New York teams won on the same weekend was Oct. 14. The Jets have contributed four losses in their five games since then.
Clark Judge (CBSSports.com, 25) - Now that Fireman Ed is gone, it's time to send in the clowns. Oh, wait, they're already here.
Ira Kaufman (Tampa Tribune, 26) - Getting what they deserve the back page of the Big Apple tabloids.
Pat Kirwan (SiriusXM NFL Radio/CBSSports.com, 22) - The Jets got run over by their arch rivals, New England last week. Rex Ryan promises the team will finish strong and I would expect nothing less. Nothing has gone well since they traded for Tebow.
John Lynch (Fox Sports, 24) - The Jets roller coaster ride continues. On the free fall again as the Patriots did what the Patriots do. Humiliate teams.
Alex Marvez (Foxsports.com, 25) - When Fireman Ed quits, you know things are bad.
Dan Pompei (Chicago Tribune, 22) - Everyone is off the bandwagon now. Even Fireman Ed.
