Demario Davis on 1-2 Jets: Feels Like ‘We’re Undefeated’

I’m all for an optimistic outlook on things, but New York Jets linebacker Demario Davis is suffering from delusional thinking. The Jets are 1-2, and about to embark on a four-game stretch against some quality quarterbacks that could leave them sitting at 1-6 when it’s all done. Davis says there’s no panic in the room, and he’s so optimistic about a turnaround, that he feels...

Why not? Who better would know how a team is going to perform than the guys who will be out there fighting for every inch of turf? Well, of course the players are inherently biased...
