    Is winning the division too much of a stretch?

    Not rhetorical by any means. I'm just trying to get an idea of what some Jet fans expectations are like. I haven't see any talk of winning the division which is good cause people are focused on other area's and etc but what are your expectations going into this season? Seems like everyone here that I see talk about what they expect this season at best is a wild-card birth and possibly trying to make a run cause they think NE is going 14-2 or 13-3 at worst. I think NE's squeaked out wins last year that next year they might not be able to do so. They are still very young on defense, not physical, and who knows if Brady will take a step back. Obviously you still need to beat NE if you're the Jets but I'm not thinking wild card strictly this year like some people I see on the forum. I'm interested to see how this team comes back from what happened last year early on when the season starts.

    As long as Tom Brady and Bill Belichick are there the Jets have a minimal shot to win the AFCE. I mean have the Jets won it since Brady has been there? I think in 2005 on a tie breaker was the only time if I'm correct. That Patriots team was the 2nd worst in Belichick's tenure as HC of the NEP. They won only 9 games, the same as the Jets.

    We're going to have a good season at the most we'll probably go 12-4

    But this yr the Pats have an easy schedule so inevitably they'll take it :(

    The real difference in the schedule is the Pats play the Jets twice and the Jets have to play the Pats. If that's what you mean by easier, you won't get an argument from me.

    IMO, there's no way the Jets win 4 more games than last year. I expect the same record if things fall right for your team.

    Because the topic is the jets place in the division, not who is starting at RT for the jets.

    The pats won 13 games last year and should even be a better team this year,
    With Lloyd, Gafney, Fells, Fannae and Gregory.

    Yes, Buzzsaw. I think you're on to something brilliant. If Brady gets injured and Belicheck has amnesia (after game 1) and the Jets score a min of 4 TDs each and every game, then I'd say the Jets have a chance... to tie.

    But you don't discuss, you dismiss.

    Try and think of reasons why the Jets could possibly win the division, without sounding completely biased. Just try.

    Odds are against it, but its possible. If we could have showed up in Foxboro Dec 2010, we would have won the division. Sweep their ass and the division is ours

    He could be the big change the Jets need .

    Don't ignore Buffalo. Last year Buffalo was a .500 team until Fred Jackson went down. They've bolstered a brutal defense this offseason.....they should be a riser.
    Interesting factoid from 2011....the Jets, Buffalo and Miami were all brutal on the road....young QB syndrome???
    Face it.....Brady vs Sanchez.....no way the Jets surpasss NE

    "falling right" by definition would be better play from the QB, RT, run game and pass rush...

    Improvements in those areas along with an easier schedule would imply more wins...

    Troll on though bro...

    You're asking him to talk football, which he knows **** about. Good luck getting a worthwhile response.
