The surprising (not to me, remember I had them making the playoffs this year) Jets are 5-4 and begin the 2nd half of there season in Buffalo.  While most would think that the Jets will falter down the stretch like the last two season here’s 5 reasons why they won’t:

1.  The Front Seven: A unit that’s young, athletic, and energetic led by Mo, Snacks, Richardson, Davis, and Harris.  Look for Coples to have a monster second half of a season.

2.  The law office of Ivory and Bilal: Neither runner is a game changer, but they always run hard and make you earn it when your attempting to tackle them.  This also keeps defenses honest which leads me to number 3.

3.  Geno Smith, The QB under center plays like a rookie and he’s suppose to: Hey Mark Sanchez was a great teammate, but his bonehead mistakes not only hurt the team on the field, but in the locker room.  It’s hard to go out there and bust your ass every play when the QB is turning it over left and right in his 4th season.  You can tell teammates see something in Geno and will continue to play hard, with rookie mistakes and all.

4.  FOLK hero and the Special Teams Band:  It’d be crazy to think that Nick Folk will continue on his torrid 23/23 pace, but I’ll never count him out, Folk leads the league in Field Goals made.  He makes clutch kick after clutch kick and with a great D and a young QB he’s exactly what you need.  Picking up Josh Cribbs (if he still has something left in the tank) was one of the greatest moves of the season.

5. They’re all in for Rex:  The team knows Rex is on hot seat and being 5-4 at the bye is great, but at the end of the day it means nothing if the team doesn’t finish the deal with a playoff spot.

I believe they will: Jets end up 10-6 believe in the scheme
