The Miami game might be winnable for the Jets with Tua getting the start, same with Chargers and their rookie QB.Pondering Her Percy wrote: ↑Wed Oct 21, 2020 11:15 am
There's no optimism there. The Jets will be extremely lucky to win a game this year. They have a bad QB, no RBs, bad WRs, a bad OL and a terrible defense. Oh and a terrible coach. Some thought they may catch a win against a team like the Dolphins. They just played the Dolphins and lost 24-0. The talent on our roster compared to theirs is night and day. This Vikings team could walk into somewhere like Seattle and pull an upset off. They practically did if Mattison had a set of eyes that worked. The Jets on the other hand, will be lucky to compete with the worst of the worst.
You're looking at it from a pure record standpoint. I'm looking at it from a talent standpoint. The Vikings have lost to two undefeated teams by a combined 2 points. The Jets are losing to bad teams being QBed by Brett Rypien.
Tell me who the Jets have any shot of beating with this remaining schedule:
I honestly dont see a single win there. Normally I would've said Miami but given what Miami just did to them last week, I dont see it.
As for the Vikings schedule:
I can see the Vikings beating the Lions both times, Cowboys, Panthers and Jags on any given Sunday. Even a win over the Bears wouldnt surprise me because their offense blows.
Are we really going to sit here and act like the Vikings have any shot of matching the Jets record or being even close to that #1 pick when you considered overall talent on the rosters plus remaining schedules?? Again, no optimism there, just quite obvious if you ask me.
The Vikings have come close to winning a couple of games against good teams, but watching both those games, it didn't seem like either of those teams were playing particularly well and may have been looking past us. Maybe that happens to the Jets a few times and they actually pull out a win or two?
We have no shot at beating the Bears btw. Their offense isn't great but succeeds against bad defenses like ours, and that defense is better than the one that just owned us twice last year.
The Minnesota Vikings are one more bad loss from the 2020 season turning into Titanic 2.0.
And sure enough, the first game after the bye is at Lambeau.
I don't care about talent. If Zimmer loses this locker room — assuming he hasn't already — the Jets could probably beat the Vikings.
