Two hapless 4-7 teams will meet this Sunday to see who can be the worst of the already bad. This will occur at 1 PM ET at Metlife Stadium in New York when the Jets take on the Cardinals. Both teams have had very different seasons, but both have been equally awful. The Jets made the most talked about offseason acquisition when they got Tebow from the Broncos. That has so far been a bust, but not as bad as the offensive line of the Arizona Cardinals. The Cardinals started off 4-0, but quickly they went on their current 7 game losing streak.
Last week the Jets were blown out of the water by the Patriots who embarrassed them. Rex Ryan certainly should have the hottest seat in the NFL. His team has gradually gotten worse and worse while his weight got better and better. It almost seems like he lost some intensity and football smarts as he lost pounds. The team has not been plagued by injuries, but did lose their best defender in Darrell Revis. Otherwise, the team had high hopes and was a favorite by many to make the playoffs.
Arizona, on the other hand, had no high hopes. They did end up getting off to a great start, but quickly reality came to slap them in the face. Slap them it did, when they began to let sack after sack happen as both their starters went down. Ken Wisenhunt is now on his third quarterback, but more importantly, could be another coach facing the hot seat. Either way you slice it, this week’s game could be for a job.
