The New York Jets were riding high after two straight appearances in the AFC Championship Game, and even leading up to Week 15 of the 2011 season at 8-5 with a clear shot at the playoffs once again. Then, the warts that had been evident all along, which had been covered beautifully over the years, finally came back to the surface. From that point, the Jets did a full-on nose dive to a 6-13 record.
The sky is no longer the limit for this group, and where it once seemed the Jets were on a path to great success for years to come, that goal has become increasingly out of reach for the Jets.
