    Last year's team is better in almost every facet

    Except for the passing game of course. Last year's O-Line was better, the run game was better, and so were the pass D and pass rush, but we're winning because of Sanchez has improved so dramatically. Will that be enough to put us over the top?

    Last year’s team was a 500 team that backed into the playoffs based on the NFL Super computer.

    This is a passing league and this year’s team can actually pass the ball. That's why we are winning games that we routinely lost last year.

    the defense and running game are in a funk right now, a big reason why we haven't been able to put teams away when given the chance. but you know the saying: it's a QB-driven league.

    our biggest concern going into the season was finding out if Sanchez could consistently lead the Jets to victory, and he's doing it.

    You left out the fact that last year's team was also better at finding ways to lose.

    Twice to Miami, Buffalo, Jacksonville, Atlanta, etc...

    To some fans, 4-6 is "better" than 8-2.

    lol...

    So i guess the thread starter is finally learning that this league is driven by the QB??? If you are better at QB, that is all you need in this league.

    I'm not complaining about the way we're winning at all, just pointing out that many facets of last year's team are better. We're winning because the passing game is much improved and Sanchez is making big plays, despite the defense reverting to last year's nasty habit of blowing games late. Is Sanchez's improvement going to be enough to get us to where we want to go?

    This is just plain silly. The first half of last year we blew every close game. THis year, we've won every close game (except for Baltimore). And the improvement to the passing game is much more significant than the fall-off in other areas (as evidenced by our record).

    4 and 6 glass half full. 8 and 2 glass half empty. Just can't make sense of some JET FAN'S. Winston know you were being sarcastic, but the expectation's of some is a bit much for this long time fan.

    The pass rush was better?

    Our pass rush is no prize now but Jason Taylor has helped us improve slightly in this category?

    Our pass defense was better?

    Revis was healthier last year and played better then, however Cromartie has been lights out all year and we had no one last year at CB2 that could hold his jock.

    Safety play is about the same as last year, we could use some improvement there.

    Biggest problem this year is the reputation we built for ourselves on Hard Knocks, etc. Every team is gearing up for us like it was the damned Superbowl. Denver was so spent after playing us that the Raiders made them look like a JV squad the following week.

    The only stat that Rex Ryan wants this team to lead the league in is ****ing wins.

    Mission accomplished.

    Teams are attacking our defense differently this year, we've been exposed to a certain extent. Lossing that big 6' 8" kid in camp and Jenkins has hurt our inside pass rush and we are vulnerable in the middle on passes. Our coaches our doing the best they can to overcome these issue's. Sanchez has become a play maker and is fast becoming our best player.

    I totally understand why fans are over reacting. Many of us can practically smell a SB but the reality is teams are what they are and no amount of *****ing or moaning about it is going to change it. This team isn't the most talented team in the NFL it has holes and weak links on both sides of the ball just like almost every team in the league this year.

    I can honestly say I love that we are 8 & 2, I love watching our young QB become a star in this league but I also don't see a dominating sure fire SB team, just a team in the mix.

    The D is clearly disappointing and honestly the development of Green and our running game has to be a concern for those who think this is SB or bust.

    Yesterday's game was interesting because early on Shaub actually was jumpy in the pocket even though there was absolutely no pressure. I think he was anticipating last years D and didn't really settle down until late in the game.

    If we continue to make QB's comfortable we better hope that we don't face a really hot team in the playoffs.

    This team is missing pieces to be great but we are fortunate to be in the AFC right now, everyone else seems to be missing pieces as well.

    A young QB like Sanchez is going to give us plenty of chances to make a run. We just need to keep building, watch and enjoy it. We can't make the team something it isn't just because we are so close.

    Whether people want to admit it or not, this team desperately misses Rhodes range in the backfield

    I am starting to believe this, he whiffed on a few tackles, but he made a fair amount of plays and hit the quarterback a few times too.

    This really cannot be emphasized enough.

    If you want to be a consistent playoff contender in this league you cannot build a team around exclusively running the ball and playing good defense, this isn't the 80s and 90s anymore.

    We led the NFL with a league low 8 passing TD's allowed last year, had the number 1 running game in the league (probably because we ran the ball 70% more than we threw it), had a stout run defense, and yet still managed to barely eek out 9 wins.

    Why? Because points don't come out of the running game, they come from the passing game, and we now have a legitimate passing game in a league which requires one to win games.

    If you think this somehow makes us a worse team than last year then you're in desperate need of some perspective.
