2013 Season record prediction thread
Now that the regular season is upon us and all of the offseason moves have pretty much come to a close, what do you think the Jets record will be?
I figure somewhere around 5-11. I think the defense will be good. IMO, not as good as any other defense we have had under Rex Ryan, but still a good defense. Probably a top 15 defense. I also believe the ST's will be improved. After having such a terrible year on ST's last season, I can only see the unit being better. The offense should be better over the long term, but I cannot see the offense being very productive this season. They got better along the OL. They added some youth and actually got some badly needed depth. I love the Willie Colon FA move. I love the guys attitude and assuming he stays healthy, I can definitely see the OL as a whole being better. Kellen Winslow seems to be a good addition as well and should give the QB another weapon in the passing game.
However, that is where it ends for the offense. The passing game will be a nightmare this season. Whoever plays QB will never get any respect from opposing defenses. They will sell out and stop our running game and challenge the QB to throw the ball. It's that simple.
Overall, this is a rebuilding season for the team. The FO is paving the way for a championship run in anywhere from 2-3 seasons from now. They are on schedule. The team will need to go through a bad season or two to complete the rebuilding process. 2013 is the worst part of the rebuilding process.
