As of the beginning of the fourth quarter in the game against the Tennessee Titans, the New York Jets have generated a grand total of 188 yards.

Of that 188, a meager 77 yards came via the air. 

77 yards!

In three quarters of football!

Against a defense that ranks 27th in the league against the pass!

Sorry, I just felt that exclamations points were necessary to drive home how putrid this performance was.

Even Christian Ponder is more effective.

And it isn't all on Mark Sanchez. Tim Tebow—inexplicably—was given a chance to lead a drive. He failed to complete his only pass and posted a quarterback rating of 39.6.

Which was a whole .3 worse than Sanchez. 

So who could blame Jets fans for bringing identity-restricting paper bags to the game? In fact, it's just downright responsible:


These guys are not happy with the #Jets offense tonight. I don't blame them. #BagHeads…
