New York Jets: Slow Starts Mean Same Old Jets
Most teams that win games based on their defense don't put up points early, and the New York Jets are another example of that.
It can be very frustrating to be a Jets fan, and see your team fall behind time and time again and being forced to mount major comebacks.
Against the Cowboys the Jets didn't get points on the board until less than a minute to go in the first half, and that caused them to go into halftime down in the game.
The Jets slow starts may not only be frustrating to the fans, but it may actually be influencing the way the Jets play.
Bart Scott told the New York Daily News:
"I think the last stadium was a lot louder and maybe some of the die-hard fans can't afford tickets any more."
"We have to challenge the people that's in the stadium now to get off their iPads and tweets and represent the stadium and get loud and make it a home-field advantage for us."
Maybe it is less the fact the new stadium and more the fact the Jets fans are fired up, and then the team comes out flat. This can really take the air out of a stadium, especially if the Jets struggle as they did against Dallas early on.
Either way the Jets need to learn to put points up earlier in the game, because against good teams the door is going to be shut on them before they have a chance to make a comeback.
