    [QUOTE=S.I.

    If by a "bridge" year, you mean a year in which it's become clear they are on the decline while the Jets and Dolphins are on the rise, then I agree.

    DWC2, I really appreciate your enthusiasm, I really do, [B]BUT[/B] what 'Offense' are YOU watching? The Offense I see is run oriented, but seemingly pass predictable. I know, I know, scaled back the 'O' for the Rook, yadda, yadda, yadda. This 'O' needs 'retooling' and as soon as a certain 'tool' is removed and replaced with a 'better' tool, it is my belief this Offense will really soar then :yes:

    I'm not talking about the production of this Offense, because I know that we need time for Mark Sanchez to develope, but as far as this Offense being something exciting to watch, it is to me.

    I enjoy watching Mark Sanchez under center. He's made plenty of rookie mistakes, but he's also made some great plays.

    Thomas Jones is fun to watch, he's a threat each and every game.

    Shonn Greene has the highest yards per carry average of all rookie RB's; I'm starting to really enjoy his style of rushing.

    Just the thought of Braylon Edwards and Jerricho Cotchery as our 1-2 punch at the WR position is something to be proud of.

    Not many teams have a Dustin Keller type of pass catching talent. He's something talented.

    Ferguson @ LT? Faneca at LG? Mangold @ Center? I love it. Brandon Moore and Damien Woody do a solid job holding it down for the right side of the O-Line.

    Players like Brad Smith are fun to watch, David Clowney also makes for a deep threat, even when he's not involved in the Offense.

    I guess sometimes it feels like it's only me, but I've really enjoyed this season so far...And it goes back to the offseason, I was really expecting a playoff type of team, I made that known, I never hit the fact that I thought we would have much success rushing the ball while playing top 5 Defense under Rex Ryan...It's just been a great season so far and a trip to the playoffs would be special

    Gotcha. I get it. I understand now. I dunno, I just would LOVE an Offense as aggressive as our 'D'. Almost like an Indy or Minny type offense. Run oriented sure, but feared as a 'pass' offense as well. Heavy TE, slot WR routes (like my man Chrebet used to run) as well as what Braylon and Cotch do. It just seems to me that these guys could be 'utilized' MUCH MUCH better :yes:

    I agree. As of right now, I believe this Jets Offense could really use that Percy Harvin type of slot WR because lets be honest, Brad Smith may be a jack of all trades, David Clowney can become a deep threat, but as of right now...The Jets are lacking that talented type of slot WR that can take over games, or at least demand alot of attention, which could then open up the field for the rest of our offense.

    All offseason heading into the draft, I was explaining why I thought Percy Harvin would be one hell of a talent with an NFL Offense and if the Jets want that Percy Harvin type of X-Factor for our slot WR...I say the Jets front office MUST take a serious look @ Dexter McCluster...This kid is a Percy Harvin clone as far as play making ability goes. If he's around during the 2nd round, the Jets MUST draft him.

    I would also like for the Jets to be more of a quick strike type of team but lets be honest here once again... The Jets have a rookie QB under center, who may be talented, but he's still own played 1 season of college ball for USC before becoming a starter for our Jets... Schotty Jr has protected Mark Sanchez the best way possible this season, we rank #1 in rushing, #1 in rushing attempts and dead last I believe in passing attempts...Thats what you call protecting a rookie QB.

    Next year we should pass a good 5-7 times more per game but as of right now...I enjoy the rookie protection.

    [QUOTE=DefenseWinsChampionships2;3429109]Keep in mind, I can only speak for myself. I loved the 1998 Jets, never seen a Jets team that fun to watch since; we had Parcells, Martin, Chrebet, a talented O-Line, a Bill Parcells type of Defense, Broadway Vinny, Keyshawn Johnson, and we also made it to the AFC Championship game. What could have been.

    Here in 09, And now 20010? We have a rookie QB in Mark Sanchez that I'm really starting to enjoy. I just happen to believe that Mark Sanchez is going to turn out to become the Jets Franchise QB for many of years to come. The type of QB that we can build our Offense around, the type of QB that can become the face of this Jets Franchise, as Jeter is to the Yankees. The type of young talented QB that we can build our team around during the draf and free agency.

    These are just some of the reasons why I've enjoyed watching this rookie compete out there on the football field this season. I've always expected rookie mistakes, I'm still expecting future mistakes from Sanchez over the years, but I'm also thankful, that as a Jets fan, I'm even in a position to watch our coaching staff attempt to develope this top 5 draft pick into a Franchise type of QB, I'm also enjoying the fact that this young rookie QB has shown us all that he can at least compete in this league.

    The Patriots have Tom Brady.
    The Colts have Peyton Manning
    The Steelers have Big Ben.
    The Eagles have Donovan McNabb.
    The Bengals have Carson Palmer.
    The Chargers have Philip Rivers.
    The Cowboys have Romo.
    The Giants have Eli Manning.

    The Packers had Brett Favre; now the Vikings have #4.
    The Rams had Kurt Warner; now Fitz, Boldin and the Cards enjoy Kurt Warner.
    The Chargers had Drew Brees; now the Saints are blessed with their Franchise QB.

    Each and every one of those QB's are Franchise types of QB's. Each and every one of those teams, have been in a strong position to make a strong playoff run just about each and every year with those Franchise QB's under center. Each and every one of those teams have either been in the SB, or been considered and respected as SB Contenders for many of years now.

    I just really enjoy watching Sanchez and this Jets Offense, because I believe in about 2-3 seasons...Our Jets Offense will be flying high with the types of players and overall talent we have.

    Just watching this team, as a fan, has really been something else for me this season.

    Just about each and every NFL team would love to have the LT and C positions filled with elite talent. When I think of our O-Line, I think of Ferguson and Mangold and just the thought of having these two guys for the next 10+ years is something to be pumped up about.

    It's always been fun watching Thomas Jones rush the football. It was a huge blow when we lost Leon Washington, but damn... We really do have a special talent in Shonn Greene. Yeah, he's had like 3-4 fumbles this season, but he also leads all rookies in average yards per carry; thats something to build off of. Thats always been an important stat in my eyes, thats how I enjoy judging RB success, thats just because I feel average yards per rushing attempt is a huge aspect in running back success.

    We really haven't had a 6'3+ type of #1 talent at the WR position since Keyshawn Johnson, I'm enjoying Braylon Edwards. Yeah, he's had some tough drops and mistakes on the football this season, but he's also made huge play after huge play. And if anything, I like to believe that he's A) Good for our offense, B) Good for the future success of Mark Sanchez and the Jets and C) Good for our rushing attack, because he's a player that opposing secondary's and D's must account for and every once in a while, must double cover. I've just really enjoyed having Edwards and Cotchery as our 1-2 punch and honestly believe the 1-2 punch of Edwards and Cotchery can be elite over the next 5+ seasons.

    The Saints have Shockey, the Ravens have Heap, the Colts have Clark, the Chiefs had Gonzalez, the Chargers have Gates, the Falcons have Gonzalez, the Cowboys have Witten and the 49ers have Davis. I've always enjoyed watching talented pass catching TE's and thats what I see in Dustin Keller; a real talent at the TE position. He has the talent, ability and potential to become a serious X-Factor for Sanchez and the Jets over the years. Dustin Keller was ranked as the Nations #1 pass cathing TE talent coming out of the draft last season as a rookie... I really expect huge success from Dustin Keller over the years.

    Words just cant explain how I feel about this Jets team as of right now, so I'll stop right about now. Players like Revis and Sheppard on the outside, Harris and Scott as our 1-2 punch at the IMLB position, a D-Line thats played with nothing but heart and guts, a Defense that ranks #1 overall, #1 against the pass, have allowed the fewest points in the league, talent @ the Safety position with Rhodes, Leonard and Smith, Brad Smith starting to make plays for the Jets, Jay Feely having a career year, Dwight Lowery and Strickland making for a nice 1-2 punch at the Nickel/Dime positions, Calvin Pace putting pressure on opposing QB's from the outside for 4 quarters strong, our O-Line leading the way for Thomas Jones, Shonn Greene, and the league's #1 overall rushing attack, a head coach in Rex Ryan who makes it known that he believes in this team, these players, and this franchise, a rushing attack and Defense that can lead the way for Sanchez and the Jets during the playoffs.

    This has just been an exciting time for me as a Jets fan.

    A win this week, against the Bengals, and as fans, we could be watching something special in the making. I seen it with the Rays of 2008, and I'm getting these same types of feelings with this Jets team of 2009 and now 2010.[/QUOTE]

    Honestly, that's fine with me. It's not like he's always in, making some plays and not others and is frustrating me with his play. He hasn't done ANYTHING, so it's tough to get too wound up about it.

    Back to the thread, didn't mean to derail...

    Hell yeah, I've been a huge fan of the overall talents of Percy Harvin for some time now, and this is coming from an FSU fan who cant stand the Gators, but I always though Harvin was something else.

    I was in love with the pick of Sanchez, I just thought the Jets had no chance at Sanchez @ 17...A spot where I thought we could have selected Percy. All in all, I wouldn't change a thing about this years draft.

    This year... I think Dexter could be that Percy Harvin type of slot WR talent.

    We were rolling along fine until Tebow suffered that concussion at Kentucky. Him and the offense just haven't been the same :(
