Jets, Fish share tough times

On Monday night, the 0-4 Miami Dolphins will visit the 2-3 New York Jets.

Despite the difference in records, it is not entirely clear which side has been the bigger disappointment so far this season.

Expectations were pretty low for the Dolphins, so a winless start is not a huge shocker, whereas brash Rex Ryan had again anointed his Jets a Super Bowl contender.

Now, the Jets have lost three in a row to dip below .500 and Ryan is under fire, along with quarterback Mark Sanchez.

Sanchez has thrown five interceptions already and has fumbled three times. His Jets are 21st in the air and a dismal 31st in rushing yards per game.

Meanwhile New York’s defence has shown some unexpected holes. Obliterated last week, though still decent against the pass (fifth in the league), the Jets have fallen to 26th in the league in stopping the ground game (allowing 134.8 yards rushing per game).

Luckily for them, the situation is even more dire in Miami.

Matt Moore is the Dolphins’ new No. 1 quarterback since Chad Henne is out of the picture for the year due to injury. Anyone who watched the Carolina Panthers last season knows Moore is not the answer at quarterback. As well, head coach Tony Sparano is likely on borrowed time.

Dolphins fans who are fine with losing because Andrew Luck is the light at the end of the tunnel probably will go to bed happy Monday night.
