Very few people here will understand the Katy High School reference, but very true. Now that's a football powerhouse. Much to my chagrin, my boys went to Cinco Ranch and Seven Lakes High Schools - we got the crap beat out of us year in and year out.
I've been here all along, just watching from the sidelines. Haven't been very active with my posts - JI has been an interesting place to be for the last couple of years. Too many dumb posts for my taste!
By the way, Sanchez is not going anywhere. He'll be here in 2013. He will restructure his contract. I've been saying that since the end of the season. He'll want another opportunity to compete for the starting QB position, in spite of what many around here think. It's in his best interest to restructure and allow the Jets some flexibility in the process. How that restructure is crafted is beyond my guess, but it will happen. We will also have at least one more competent alternative to compete with him this year, no not Tebow. We'll find out soon enough who that will be.
Unlike others here, I don't foresee a 2-3 win season in 2013. I expect the Jets to be competitive. They may only win 7-8 games though, allot depends on someone stepping up at QB, whether that's Mark or someone else is the question.
The Jets will draft better this year with a competent GM and a good scouting department, which they do have. They can fill some holes in the draft and will find a player or two to fill other holes via free agency (there will be allot of cap space freed up before it's all said and done). We need some of the rookies to start from day one and also need most of the players drafted last year to be strong contributors in 2013. It's happened before, it can happen again.
I'm looking forward to the coming NFL season, low expectations means more to enjoy if they have some success. And I believe this team will have some success. There is a good nucleus of players that have to be augmented by good drafts to make them really competitive again - 2014 could be a good year for this team.
That's my optimistic view of the current state of affairs. A good motorcycle ride or round of golf can fix any bad play by this crazy team I've been a fan of for way too many years - I always have something more interesting to focus on than Jets football!!
