I hope to see us come to play here much in the same way we have our last 3 games. The bar has been set, it's time to see how we handle the 'lesser' teams of the league, no disrespect intended.
*FYI I still consider us a 'lesser' team. Just saying whether you're a good or bad or mediocre team, in most cases you always get up to play the leagues best teams.
This season has been pretty awesome so far. All the Jets have done since laying that stinky egg in the opener is prove that they are different from last years team: Able to overcome playing on the road, back to backs, and playing teams that usually pick us apart.
Tomorrow presents yet another big litmus test for this group: Playing a 'lesser' team after a big emotional win. Young, inexperienced, and not so great teams typically have a big letdown after winning a big game (see Maple Leafs). I have a feeling that these guys are hell bent and determined to buck all the old trends. We have a much stronger lineup than last year, and I think the players are starting to shake off the ATL attitude (no offense).
I am going to be super bold and predict Al Montoya starts against his old team and we win 3-0
