The Jets Were Hilariously Awful on Monday Night Football (GIFs)
Just when you thought things couldn’t possibly get any worse for Rex Ryan and the New York Jets, they have to play a game on Monday Night Football. The last thing they needed was another opportunity to bring their bumbling idiot circus to national TV—with a berth in the postseason on the line, no less—but that’s what happened.

And the timing of these turnovers? Yeah, it wasn’t good. Two of them came in the last two minutes of the game with the Jets trailing 14-10, just one lousy touchdown away from keeping their playoff hopes alive.
The first of these late-game turnovers was a pretty typical interception…in the red zone. Bad, but not hilariously embarrassing. As for the second of the late-game turnovers, it was embarrassing.
See for yourself:
Note to whoever the next coach of the Jets will be: Mark Sanchez is not good under pressure. And the only people who still seem to have faith in this guy are Rex Ryan are the strippers at Rick’s Cabaret.

It was so bad, in fact, that one of the TV sound guys simply couldn’t take any more. So he faked an injury:
