Jets followers haven’t had a very good week. As Al Michaels as soon as so elegantly put it, “They’ve had a worse week than Harvey Weinstein.”
First, their offense will get obliterated by the New England Patriots’ protection. But, by some miracle, the Jets had been nonetheless within the sport all the way down to the ultimate whistle. Lo and behold although, because the Jets tried to punt the ball away and pressure extra time, the Patriots scored their first punt return landing since Gunner Olszewski’s glow-up game towards the Chargers in 2020. After the sport, the supposed franchise quarterback, Zach Wilson, blamed the protection for his or her loss, through which the Jets scored three factors, want I remind you. He proceeds to get benched for Mike White, assuaging among the ache Jets’ followers had been feeling, however simply when all was beginning to search for, who else however the second-most notorious bust QB of all time has to take to Twitter and annihilate each Jets’ fan in a 10-mile radius.
From the highest rope, Leaf simply dunks on this fan’s head with no regret in any way. Take into consideration the kids, Ryan! Take into consideration all the youngsters in center faculty proudly sporting their…Mark Sanchez jerseys? What jerseys do younger Jets followers put on these days? Like Sauce Gardner is a rookie, so he’ll have some however he’s not a throwback. Are there any viable throwback Jets jerseys? Nick Mangold? Darelle Revis? [Editor’s note: Revis is a solid choice.] That’s simply unhappy.
Again to the purpose, Ryan! It’s important to take into consideration all the youngsters of their Jets’ memorabilia, glad to really feel like part of one thing greater than themselves. They’re not going to need to be followers after getting a actuality examine from the man drafted proper after Peyton Manning! That mentioned, I perceive feeling the necessity to eviscerate strangers on-line. We’ve all fallen into that entice a time or two, and Leaf couldn’t have executed the assault any higher.
With out hesitation, Leaf attacked this man, Twitter person @RJBJrThe3rd’s whole level of being. I imply, his Twitter bio is actually “The Jets and Knicks are so good.” Positive, he’s solely 20 years previous, however that’s an grownup. He’s taken Enterprise 101, and so long as he was paying consideration in school, he ought to’ve discovered on the primary day, that the relativity between “How a lot you fuck round” and “How a lot you’re going to search out out” is a straight line. The extra you fuck round, the extra you’re gonna discover out. And after stepping into Leaf’s enterprise, he came upon actual fast.
Instantly, the Twitter person was in protection mode, dropping the basic “STFU” on Leaf. He additionally made enjoyable of a complete faith, which is rarely a great way to get the general public in your aspect. It was an fascinating maneuver. Did it repay? In no way. Leaf spent practically three years in a Montana jail from March 2012 to December 2014 on burglary and drug charges. He was imagined to serve 5 years however bought out early. Primarily based on this Twitter thread, we will solely assume he spent these days locked up fascinated by how sorry the New York Jets franchise was/is.
It’s arduous to argue towards Leaf. The Jets have misplaced 9 straight towards their division rival New England Patriots and 17 of their final 20. Within the final ten years, they’ve by no means completed higher than second of their division and have just one profitable season. They haven’t reached the playoffs in that span, which may’t be mentioned about each different group of their division. Throughout numerous seasons, the group’s main receiver was Jeremy Kerley (twice), Quincy Enunwa, and a person who as soon as claimed he was going to nut in a cop’s wife’s eye (twice as properly). We can also’t overlook concerning the butt fumble.
It’s been a tragic existence, however I’ll give props to Jets followers, I haven’t seen too many luggage on heads. You put on that ugly inexperienced jersey with satisfaction, it doesn’t matter what any fallen quarterback has to say. Perhaps simply go away the Ryan Leaf jokes to the professionals although.
