Its not like they decided to become a ground and pound team last week. This is what they said it was going to be back in March. But what have they done to make it happen. Outside of hiring Sparano, and to a lesser degree bringing in Tebow to run a "Wildcat style" offense situationally, In other words, almost nothing.
Once again the Jets spent most of their draft and FA capital on the defense. Its almost like Rex doesn't really give a crap about the rest of the team as long as he can pat himself on the back because the defense is still good. So what if what was a bad offense last season, is getting worse, you got to love the D.
My biggest fear is that the HC, still really isn't one. Too often he acts like a pumped up DC who happens to give entertaining press conferences. He still doesn't seem to understand he's in charge of the entire team. I have no doubt he's one of the better DC's in the league, but the problem is that he isn't just in charge of the defense!
Sorry, I'm starting to rant. Its just the first preseason game. There is nothing to worry about.
