The Jets may be out of the guarantee business, but that didn’t stop them from delivering a Beware of Underdog message to the Patriots yesterday.
“I feel like we were real loose this week at practice, which is good to see,” Mike DeVito said. “I think a tendency that we’ve had in the past when it’s Patriots Week is to tighten up, you naturally get a little bit tight because you recognize the importance of the game, and how physical and ratcheted up it always is. ... You play this game too tight, you’re not gonna be successful. You play this game loose and with swag and having fun, that’s when you’re gonna do well, and I think guys are happy about that.
“I just know we play well when we feel like this.”
