In our last post, Jay took a look at the first seven games of the New York Jets 2012 NFL schedule. We now take a look at weeks 8-12 of the 2012 Jets season and see what it means for our beloved green and white.
Week 8 –
Miami Dolphins (home): I am happy about this matchup for two reasons. The first is that the Jets will need a confidence booster going into their bye week. Hoping the Miami Dolphins are the same team they face in week 3, I don’t foresee them having problems holding down the Dolphins in this game. The second reason I like this matchup is due to the fact this will be the last time of the season the Jets will have to face one of their division opponents for the remainder of the season.
Week 9 –
Bye Week: The worst part of the season is over. During this week the Jets will have to go into panic mode because the Jets season record is in the dumps, or it will be a much needed week of relaxation for the whole team as were on pace to make the playoffs. Most likely I believe it will be a week of concern as we already faced a rough schedule.
Week 10 –
Seattle Seahawks (away): I think the Jets will win this game, but it will not be a walk in the park. I believe you will see a big game out of Tim Tebow due to the fact that Pete Carroll will be prepared for Mark Sanchez as he knows him as good as anyone. Sporano and Tebow are going to need to throw off Seattle anyway they are able to. Marshawn Lynch can’t wait for this matchup either. Lynch has done a pretty good job in running over the Jets throughout his career. The Jets will have to figure out a way to stop him and the aerial attack of Matt Flynn (who I don’t think is gonna be a bust). I feel this will be one of those non-anticipated critical games for gang green.
Week 11 –
St. Louis Rams (away): This should be another win for gang green. I would still take this matchup seriously as we all know Brian Schottenheimer will. The Jets former offensive coordinator who happens to be The Rams current, will take this as a Superbowl matchup. Nothing would please Schottenheimer more than to beat New York (The city who pretty much booed him out of town). Schotty wants to show the Jets that he wasn’t the reason why they had offensive problems. I think the Jets defense in this game will have to focus their attention to the rushing attack of St. Louis. Steven Jackson proved last year that regardless of being older, you still can’t overlook him as a threat. I believe Sam Bradford will have a strong year (depending if he is healthy), but with that being said I still don’t see the aerial attack of the Rams giving problems to the Jets especially if Denario Alexander is your threat at the receiver position.
Week 12 –
New England Patriots (home): What a way to say thanks. Pats Vs. Jets on Thanksgiving night. Hopefully we all be bored by the lopsided whooping the Jets will lay on the pats. Lol yea one can wish but you never know. Seriously speaking I think this will be a better matchup this time around than the previous meeting these two teams will have. The last time the Jets played a Thanksgiving game they put the beats down on the Bengals. I don’t see them putting the beats down on the Pats but I still see a great game regardless. I wonder how many times on this day he’s thankful for being put on the Jets? Not as many times as he said he was excited in his first press conference he had as a Jet, but it will be pretty close.
