The New York Jets have never been in the spotlight the way they are right now, at least not for the best reasons.
They’ve mostly been bottom feeders or the butt of the joke online, but they now have a legit opportunity to do something special.
That’s why a lot of people have expressed their concerns regarding how the spotlight, the media, the cameras, and all the pressure could take a toll on their ability to get the job done once and for all.
With that in mind, NFL analyst Ryan Clark believes there’s no reason to think about any of that right now.
Let me paint a picture. When the ball is snapped there’s only ME & THEM. The fans disappears, the sidelines are invisible, & sound ceases to exist. For 3-5 seconds the world stops. That’s football. That’s our lives. Nothing else matters!

Per Clark, this is not the first time that an underperforming team has either traded for or signed a future Hall-of-Famer at quarterback, and it’s not like this will be their first time playing in front of the cameras or with high expectations.
Clark trusts the players’ and coaches’ professionalism to realize that there’s a lot at stake, and it’s not like they need an extra reminder or have never experienced something like this in the past.
Truth be told, that’s right on point.
They’re professionals, and there shouldn’t be any extra motivation aside from actually competing to win a Super Bowl.
Moreover, even if there are some concerns about how Aaron Rodgers will lead with New York City’s ruthless media, he’s proven to be a professional in the past, and maybe we should focus the debate on what actually matters, which is football.NEXT: Former NFL Player Gives Ultimatum To The Jets
