    What are YOUR Worries in 2010?

    [U]Sanchez[/U] -- Does he hit the Sophomore slump? The Offense (more than in 2009) may sink or swim on his arm in 2010.

    [U]Greene[/U] -- I love the kid, am glad he won the job (and won it by playing), and I support him being the #1.....but it IS a big risk. He got hurt alot, and fumbles and has never been a season-long #1. Can he prove he is worthy? And does LT have anything left?

    [U]Loss of Faneca[/U] -- Yea, I know the PR is that Faneca sucked in 2009 and anyone is better at that spot. So we'll see, is his veteran leadership and experience missed, or will the big kids prove this a non-issue.

    [U]WR Dramaqueens[/U] -- Can all these guys get enough balls to not complain/go emo? Can Holmes stay out of trouble? Can Edwards stop dropping balls? Does Keller return to form?

    [U]Hard Knocks[/U] -- I know, I'm on an Island thinking it's a distraction and bad idea. So I doubt anyone else shares this worry.

    [U]The D[/U] -- There is VERY little to worry about here.....eexcept it was so good last year, can the reproduce it again? It's awful hard being the #1 D in the NFL two years in a row, and while Rex is clearly a great D leader, it'll be hard to follow that up with a second showing, especially if the running O isn't as good.

    We have a very good team, and alot of reason for optimism for 2010. But these are the things that worry me going in.

    What worries you?

    sanchez is the #1 worry. if he has a soph slump or even plays like he did during regular season the team is doomed

    other worries

    -the first time vlad gets beat bad

    -brodney pool staying healthy. people are overrating this pickup or just choosing to ignore a very scary injury history

    -cro not sucking. People again overrating this player, who has basically stunk for 2 or more years.

    - LT done? this is a player who was boo'ed off his home field in last NFL performance. Nuff said.

    - Greene staying healthy - he plays like he's got an extra body in the closet

    -who is the kicker/who is the punter? at some point every SB team is gonna need a big kick

    See, I'm not too worried about this. Cromartie is automatically better than anyone we lined up in 2009 opposite Revis. Strickland, Lowery, and especially Sheppard, were all scrubs. Even if we get the '08-'09 version of Cromartie, it is an instant upgrade. Then you add in he's in a contract year and is playing under someone who will light a fire under his ass, coupled with being in a defensive system more tailored to his talents, and you will more than likely get the better version of Cromartie.

    Even better. If Cromartie does suck, we have Kyle Wilson.

    Obviously Mark and his penchant for throwing the ball where he shouldn't. On another note, Braylon Edwards running incorrect routes, which lead directly to a few of Sanchez' interceptions.

    Nick Folk scares the hell out of me. He's horrid on kick offs, so much so Dallas had to draft a kick off specialist.

    Our kick coverage team. Westhoff will have a heart attack if he sees another Miami 2.0 disaster.

    Holmes integrating himself into the offense seamlessly after 4 weeks away from the field.

    Dustin Keller's productivity. He seems to flash and disappear with a troublesome regularity.

    Greene staying healthy and the coaching staff not giving LT too many carries. The two go hand in hand. We'll probably have to pick one and suffer some for it.

    Braylon Edward's concentration on deep balls.

    A rookie LG, be it Slauson or Vlad. To me, this is why Nick's contract is absolutely critical. You need him happy and mentoring this kid without distractions.

    That the Jets will suddenly release T Rich and start Conner.

    What worries you?[/QUOTE]

    Faneca not playing great wasn't PR.

    Some people get so suckered by reputation and historical play, that they just assume it continues. I had said pretty clearly late season that Faneca was our worst offensive lineman. Some people didn't agree, but it was pretty obvious if you just watch a game after the fact, and just rewatch each play focusing on each individual lineman. Now, although he was our worst lineman, he wasn't awful, he was just the most prone to getting beat compared to the others.

    Moore was usually the worst, but last year he had his best year of his career. Was really happy to see how that worked out considering they just gave him that extension.

    Doesn't mean Ducasse will be better, just considering the financial difference and needing to get someone new in there anyway, the move made sense.

    I admit it, I do harbor SOJ tendencies. I've been beaten senseless.


    Recurring thought, first play from scrimmage, we are tested on a blind side blitz, pfail, Sanchez goes down, holds knee, I kick a table, break my foot.

    Then I realize how many guys have bought PSL's, shilled the product here, predicted SB's..... and I start larfing maniacally as I apply ice watching Clemens throw away his clipboard and grab a helmet.


    Other than that, I hold the similar viewpoint of Warfish except I'm not as concerned about hard knocks.

    +1 you can put our Kicking situation at the top of the list of worries/uncertainties for the upcoming season.

    Whether you like it or not, Kickers have huge affects on the outcome of games, especially playoff games, just look at CIN and SD last season againt us.

    Hopefully Folk can get healthy and return to Pro Bowl form, if not then hope that there is a FA somewhere that we can pick up that can be servicable for us.

    Injuries. Thats all I'm worried about; Injuries.

    If our starters can stay healthy, this Jets team of 2010 won't be stopped.

    I'm not worried about Mark Sanchez, if anything, I'm excited about Sanchez; as well as our Offensive weapons this season.

    Mark Sanchez won't be asked to carry the load here in 2010, he's only a 2nd year players and believe me... Shotty Jr and Rex Ryan understand this better than anyone.

    We still have one of the best, if not the best O-Line in the game today, our Rushing Attack could be just as good, if not better than last years rushing attack that led the NFL.

    I'll take an Explosive Shonn Greene (In his prime) over an older Thomas Jones as our Feature Back. I'd also take an all time great as our backup in L.T, over a rookie RB as our backup. L.T has experience, great field vision and patience.

    Why would I be worried about Mark Sanchez? This kid is going to be so much better here in 2010.

    A full season of starting experience was huge for Mark Sanchez as a rookie last season, but the playoff experience that he gained last season was something else.

    Top 5 O-Line: Check.
    Top 5 Rushing Attack: Check.
    Three #1 Types of WR's: Check.
    Productive Slot WR: Check.
    An elite Pass Catching TE: Check.

    Mark Sanchez will be well protected this season.

    My biggest fear for this season is that the trend of a down year after a Championship game appearance continues; 1983,1999, ...

    Some strange crap always seems to happen with this team. Maybe this year it will be the impending contract issues that pulls the team apart, who knows.

    Maybe nothing happens and they actually live up to the hype.:)

    Here are my worries

    1. When Welker will be back and how effective he will be when it happens
    2. Will the additions of Gerrard Warren and DLewis, improve the rush D
    3. Will the Pats generate more pass rush....and how much of an impact the rookie LBs (Spikes and Cunningham) can make early.
    4 How quickly the secondary can come together. lots of talent but relatively little experience.
    5. Will the rookie punter improve upon a previously bad punting situation
    6. Who will emerge to be the other WR opposite Moss. (btw whoever it will be will be an improvement over Sam Aikens ;) )

    BTW- I thought most everyone pinpointed the Jet issues pretty well, except for DWC of course. :D

    God is it still 7 more weeks before we actually have a real game to think about? :eek:

    This should be every Jet fan's sleeper worry. Our offensive relies too heavily on the ground game for it to suck this year because we released a key component.

    I agree Injuries are the only thing that really worry me i can't wait to see sanchez with holmes and LT to throw to people are worryed about cro. Don't forget now when norv took over they played more zone when cro is good at man to man.

    As well you should be given the depth issues at most positions

    Of course he is going to be better. If he got any worse he would be run out of the league. With only 12 TDs and 20 picks, there is no where to go but up.

    [QUOTE]We still have one of the best, if not the best O-Line in the game today, our Rushing Attack could be just as good, if not better than last years rushing attack that led the NFL.
    [/QUOTE]

    One of the best OLs in the game????? You seem to discount you will start the season with a rookie who played division 1AA ball and has NEVER play G before. But to you that's an upgrade on a 12 year vet and a former all pro. :rolleyes: Plus Woody is going into his 12th season and HIS expiration date is fast approaching. Its going to be a good OL DWC, but one that WILL have question marks.
    [QUOTE]I'll take an Explosive Shonn Greene (In his prime) over an older Thomas Jones as our Feature Back. [/QUOTE]

    So would anyone on a pure talent and youth basis. But you still can only hope he can provide the same kind of production when he is carrying theb ball 250-300+ times. You don't KNOW.

    [QUOTE]I'd also take an all time great as our backup in L.T, over a rookie RB as our backup. L.T has experience, great field vision and patience.
    [/QUOTE]

    Perhaps so, but you still don't want him to be the feature back any more. Yes he has experience, but that's the problem. TOO MUCH experience.

    [QUOTE]Why would I be worried about Mark Sanchez? This kid is going to be so much better here in 2010.
    [/QUOTE] Like I said, no where to go but up. However you don't know how he will handle the situation when he has to throw the ball 30-40 times a game. Last year, on those occasions things didn't work out well.
    [QUOTE]A full season of starting experience was huge for Mark Sanchez as a rookie last season, but the playoff experience that he gained last season was something else.
    [/QUOTE]
    He had a great playoff run

    BTW- can anyone explain to me by any standards how the terms Dustin Keller and "elite" can be used connection with each other?????

    Sanchez and how he develops. He cant continue to be a turnover machine and expect the team to advance in the playoffs again

    Defensive line. Its paper thin. Expecting Jenkins to last a full year is probably crazy. Expecting both Pouha and DeVito to maintain the same level (especially DeVito who will now be full time) is probably not logical. Thats the weakest spot on the whole team.

    Special teams coverage. It was abysmal last year. The coach complained about it all the time and more or less stated he was being forced to play guys he did not want to because of roster constraints. You have a great defense dont give teams less field to work with. Great defenses make great things happen when you pin teams down deep in their own territory.

    Nick Folk. If Sanchez hits its a non issue, but if the team has to rely on field goals and defense they need a better kicker than Folk.
