    no and furthermore I think because of last years antics fa's will be scared to come play here. Holmes has ruined this team for a few seasons.

    Unfortunately, I'm thinking you are right TX. The only team that seems to know how to beat the Patsies during the regular season is the Jets. And even at that rate, they still got thumped by the Patsies twice last season.

    [/QUOTE]

    For the Jets to win the AFCE, they will need to sweep the Pats and stop dropping games to teams they should easily beat (Den, Oak, Mia last year).

    Easier said than done however.

    [QUOTE=PatsFanTX;4376317]Yep, keep thinking the Jets can do the same thing.:rolleyes:

    They can't.

    If all you are hoping for is to back into the playoffs as the 6th WC seed and win the Super Bowl, you are delusional.

    For the Jets to have a legitimate shot at the Bowl, they need to secure the #1 or #2 seed in the AFC.

    And going back to my original post, they will need 13+ wins to accomplish that.[/QUOTE]

    Agreed. The Jets went into the playoffs in 2009 and 2010 as wild cards. They certainly made some noise in the playoffs but ultimately fell just short of the SB.

    The only way the Jets will get to the SB is to make things EASIER on themselves. WIN that 13+ games that it takes. DO all of the things necessary during the regular season. NEVER beat yourselves like they've done so many times in the past. Play good, sound, consistent, fundamental football during the regular season.

    And as a result, the path to the SB for the NYJ will become much easier. They'll likely secure a bye and allow themselves a week of much needed rest. They'll be hosting playoff games. That will allow them the benefit of the home crowd.

    The NFL is set up to reward the teams that play the best during the regular season. IMO, that's exactly the way it should remain.

    NO! They are an average team. I believed in our QB, HC, and the rest of our players the first two years of the Rex Ryan era. Our QB and HC needed to improve, to be flexible and they didn't. Our GM needed to keep the team solid and he didn't. I don't think we will hit home runs on the majority of our FAs and draft picks. The holes are too big, and we don't have the ammunition to fix them.

    People will talk about the Jets though.

    not with sanchez at the helm.

    lets face it.the handwriting is on the wall.sanchez is not the q.b. to send the jets to the promised land.I am sure that the jets realize this.I feel that there will be major changes coming before the jets go into the draft.sanchez is due a large chunk of money this season.he is not worth the risk.

    definately not sweeping the Pats as long as brady and belichick are up north.

    The last two SB winners had 9-7 and 10-6 regular season records.

    Why not? So other teams can go in as a 6th WC seed and make it but the Jets can't?? Obviously it's an easier path going as a 1 or 2 seed but it's not always gonna happen that way.

    If Sanchez can improve and not drop the ball completely, I think the Jets can stay competitive, and that's all they need to do to stand a chance.

    In the 46 Super Bowls, 2 teams have gone in as the 6th WC seed and won the game.

    You really like the Jets chances with those odds?

    they may not be able to win 13+ games but neither will the patsies. in case you hadn't noticed, brady's arm is pretty well shot. some nice pressures early in the season will seal the patsie fate. also they don't have the talent needed to be a top flight team anymore. and teams will catch up to the whole gronkowski/hernandez double tight end set.

    as for the jets, it all depends on sanchez and his ability to not lose games. schitty isn't there anymore to call stupid plays. sanchez needs to execute smart plays.

    Yeah Bradys arm is shot.

    How many yards did he throw for last year?

    And they don't have the talent needed to be a top flight team.

    All they did was go to the Super Bowl.

    Contend for a playoff spot? Yes.

    Legitimate SB contender? No.

    The Jets are no longer just one-player away. In 2009 and 2010 they had very talented teams. But in NFL years, that was eons ago. I think a lot of personnel and team philosophy/identity mistakes were made in prior to the 2011 season. That combined with drafting poorly or at the very least not drafting immediate impact players has led the Jets to take a step back.

    The Jets are at a cross roads in 2012 for sure. But this is what happens to nearly every team. Windows are short in the NFL.

    Success is cyclical unless you have one of those 5 precious gems. Those teams reload, the others rebuild.

    The fact is the AFC isn't what it used to be.

    Patriots? A shell of their early '00s glory days.

    Steelers? Way too streaky. You just can't hang your hat on them.

    Ravens? A b.s. QB and a powerful but aging defense. Lewis, Suggs, and Reed won't be around forever. This could have been their legitimate shot to win another one if it wasn't for their jittery kicker.

    Texans might be the only team with the biggest upside. We'll see.

    As the previous two world champions proved, all you need is a Wildcard berth for a shot to win it all. If the Jets fill some much needed gaps, they could be right there.

    [QUOTE=PatsFanTX;4376293]If the Jets can not win 13+ games the next couple of seasons, they will be in the same position they have been in the last 5 years.

    Hoping for teams to lose down the stretch so they can back in and secure the final 6th seed Wild Card spot.[/QUOTE]

    There is no such thing as backing into the playoffs. You either win the amount of games required to get in or you don't. That being said why 13 wins? The playoffs have become a 12 team tournament with the hottest team winning not necessarily the team with the most regular season wins.

    [QUOTE=Sports;4376305]That's exactly what the Giants did this year! Great analogy Mr. Troll....:rolleyes:[/QUOTE]

    +10 Billion.

    Let's see, the past few SB champs how many had at least 13 wins:

    NYG -- no
    GB -- no
    NO -- yes
    Pitt -- no
    nyg -- no
    Ind -- no
    Pitt -- no

    While winning 13 or more games makes the path to the SB much easier, it by no means is the formula for winning the SB. Furthermore, each season takes on a life of its own. Cap status, draft picks, etc. are not the overwhelming factor why a team wins. During the course of the season who and when you play a team has more to do with your overall success than what happens in the offseason.

    Btw, just turn the clock back to August last year and see what most NYG fans were saying about the team's lack of moves especially at WR when they lost Smith to the Eagles and we got Plax.
