1- This isn't some team coming off a 4-12 season. Jets coming off an AFCC game & people like Mike Lombardi can go f_ck themselves constantly bringing up how they "backed" in. Guess what Mike, they beat Cincy & the Chargers on the road, go back & look at those teams home records, idiot.
2- Expectations! It's good to have expectations. How many years have the Jets been mentioned as contenders?
3- Cameras, all over the place. Would you want to be the player that comes into camp out of shape? Football players do have pride. Just go back & look at the flack McKnight took for OTA practices! Now the dude joined some type of workout program.LOL!
4- Sanchez! This guy sets the tone for gym rats. This dude is a leader. Mark loves the spotlight, he is one cool customer as he showed in the playoffs on the road.
5- Rex- Guy loves the camera, is incredible at being funny & serious, very difficult to pull off, ala Parcells. Does anyone remember when he had his kid step in to say a few words? Epic! Everyone moves in to hear what the kid has to say & he goes, " Listen up guys, kick ass on 2!"
6- Veteran Leadership- Jets have it in spades and not just in "older guys", this is a pretty young team with excellent leaders.
Mangold- Harris- Revis- Sanchez- Dbrick- Leonard
Then you have the mix Jenkins- Scott- Woody- Moore- Pace- Thomas- Ellis
I personally think the media is trying to put a wedge into this team. If you look at the reporting regrading the Jets it's all about the contracts. Dbrick signs & guys like Lombardi report that this is going to hurt chemistry. How the hell does he KNOW this. He's so full of Jet hate it's obvious.
Anyway- looking forward to Hard Knocks- This team is perfect for that show.
Imagine if they won the Superbowl?
We'd have this HBO show to look back on the characters of this Jet squad for years.
