JMo You don't want to buy it because it doesn't play into what kind of team the Jets are.(rely on defense and I understand why you feel that way)
You look at the the Teams you mention who won having a good defense that year. You forget to look at the fact that there offense weren't chopped liver either.
Last year the best teams (record wise) were the team with the best and consistent offenses. (who couldn't play defense) True or false)
Like the Ncaa tournament(one game elimination) the best team doesn't always win a championship. The teams who get hot at the right time eventually win it. Anything can happen in one game.
IF defense determines who wins in this league. Tell me why the Jets have had the best defense in the Afc East for years, and have no divisional titles to their credit.
BTw Were going to see which is more important. Raiders offense is going to be one of the beat. Jets defense defense is going to be one of the best. Lets see which team goes farther in 2012. Obviously that plays a big part in why we feel the way we do about this subject).
That isn't the point, the Jets may have lost the division title but they did beat the Patriots in the playoffs.
Teams win championships, if it was that easy to just say the best offense wins then we would have had different results. Regular season records mean little if you don't win the SB, the Giants were 9-7 last season.
