Five Reasons the New York Jets Can't Compete With New England

It has become his "thing"; Rex Ryan is making it a habit to boast that his team will suddenly become the contender that he dreams it can be. He claims, again, that the New York Jets will be in the playoffs... heck, even Geno Smith is joining in on the antics.
