Ryan not aware Jets still in playoff hunt after loss
From Rich Cimini of NYDailyNews.com:
Shortly after his team re-created a performance from the "Same Old Jets" handbook, straight from the ever-growing chapter entitled, "Unfathomable Losses," Ryan waved the surrender flag. Called it a season with two games to go.
"We're obviously out of the playoffs, and that's unfortunate," he said after a devastating yet oh-so-predictable 10-7 loss to the Falcons Sunday at the frigid Meadowlands.
Uh, just one thing, coach: You're still not mathematically eliminated.
As crazy as it seems, the Jets (7-7) still have the longest of shots in the AFC wild-card race. Then again, maybe premature concession was a fitting way to cap the afternoon; it was just another mistake in a day filled with them.
Or maybe Ryan was simply too demoralized after watching a three-hour clinic on how not to win big December games.
