Dissecting the New York Jets' Weakest Links

If the New York Jets win this week against the St. Louis Rams, they will be standing with a record of 4-6.  That's the same record they had after 10 games in their AFC Championship Game season of 2009.

The only difference is this team feels like it should be hooked up to a barrel of dynamite with Woody Johnson's hand on the plunger.

The Jets are one of the most enigmatic teams in the NFL this season.  

The have blown out the Bills and Colts, making everyone's darling Andrew Luck look like a confused junior varsity quarterback.

They have looked like a middle school team in losses to the 49ers and Dolphins.

They were also one play away from beating the Texans and Patriots, perhaps the two best teams in the AFC.

The lack of consistency has been maddening to fans, who have become unruly, impatient and unreasonable as the season has worn on.  

The season was set up well for the Jets.  All they really had to do was survive a difficult first half of the season and then take care of business against a much lighter second-half schedule.

They didn't do what they needed to do in the first half and the second half of the season hasn't exactly gotten off to a rousing start.

The Jets need to pull a 6-1 record out of nowhere to make a run to the playoffs or even a 5-2 record to regain some level of respectability.

Looking at the remaining games, the Jets' talent level is at least equal to all of their opponents besides the Patriots.  

However, this team has major problems, starting right from the top.

The Jets have a number of weak links that either need to be purged or built up.  Here's a look at eight of the team's weakest links and what the future holds for each of them.
