    11-5 this season. We'll win a couple we shouldn't and we'll lose one or two we should win. Still we will make playoffs with a great D and an unpredictable offense.

    If Tebow starts more than one game, it will impact our record in a negative way.

    In the Jets entire 52 year history in the NFL, they won 12 games exactly once.

    Even if you count pre-season games, Jets will not come close to 12 wins this year.

    Sadly enough, that's true, we won 12 only once, not giving up on it happening this year, tho

    our defense should win us 9 of those games because most of our opponents have bottom half offenses.

    Look I get that year to year teams change... BUT

    We play:

    NFC West
    AFC South

    Both are considered the worst divisions in their respective conferences. If you have any doubts, just look at the QBs in those divisions. Awful.

    Would you rather have the Giants sched? They play:

    AFC North
    NFC South

    Look at the QBs in those divisions... face it, regardless of what teams did last season, AFC East caught a schedule break in 2012 season. Need to take advantage and grab a very attainable AFC wildcard

    Divisions basically play the same teams outside the division. I'm more concerned about SF, not the Giants.

    OK but obviously we're not going to win the division anyway with the Pats likely to have another strong year. They will win typical 12-13 games. I'm saying our sched is very favorable compared to teams we will be competing against for wildcards. Other AFC divisions have tougher out of division schedules. AFC North is playing NFC East for example while we play NFC West. Which would you rather face?

    If I'm good, it doesn't really matter, but I have to be healthy, and lucky as well. Nobody wants to face the NFCE when it's in full swing, it was not last year. Odds are you are correct about the Patriots, but I wouldn't crown them just yet maybe we luck out and some things come together this year, however, schedule will most likely play a little roll.

    I think last year set the record for most .500 teams, and I think more than half the league was between 7-9 and 9-7, so odds are in any shcedule you will be facing several .500 or below teams.

    The schedule is what it is, there will be a few surprise teams that rise out of no where, that before the season you were glad to see them on your schedule, and than by the time you play them, you are worried. Would it shocj you, if Seattle finished 11-5 this year out of no where?

    The league is watered down now, everyone is on a level playing field, looking at last years schedule, has never been more meaningless. the Pats are the aberration, being able to maintain success, when the league clearly designed, and is not not looking for any more Steelers, 49ers type dynasties,
