Thread: Predict the Jets record in 2012

    Although it is good it will be a litmus test to see what we can expect from this Jets team in 2012. Buffalo despite some upgrades is still a pretender in my eyes. You cannot drop a home game to them and expect to be taken seriously.

    I couldn't agree more.

    When you look at our schedule (particularly the first eight games) there's no question that a home game vs. the Bills is essentially a must win. They're exactly the type of team we need to be better than to make the playoffs, and an opening loss to them at home would be very tough -- with games in Pittsburgh and with the 49ers and Texans, a loss week 1 could have us looking down the barrell of a disasterous start... There aren't many teams that overcome 1-3 or 1-4 to make the playoffs.

    How are we looking now guys? I don't know if my original prediction of 6-10 is going to be low enough as far as how many games the Jets end up winning, but based on my criteria in the thread I have to stick with it lol.

    Best case 6-10, worst case 2-14.

    I'm thinking 4-12. O is horrible, once the defense starts having injuries, the losses will pile up.

    9-7 because the Jets seem to perform well during seasons that they are not predicted to.

    I'll start off with 6-10
    I initially thought 10-6 would be there record. I still believe that is possible, but for that to happen changes must occur, namely at RT.

    The team as it is currently comprised is a 7 to 9 win at best team.

    4-18

    We will have losses so bad that they count as two.

    Even if the defense doesn't have injuries, you can only carry a team so far as a defense in the NFL today without any help from the offense. Eventually they'll even give up some third down conversions, some touchdowns and field goals, that's the way it is. The defense has the potential to be the very best in the league again, but that might not even be good enough to get the Jets to a respectable record. I could see this defense allowing 17 points per game, and them still having a losing record. The way the offense looks on paper, (and scarily enough, they play that way on the field so far too) the defense is going to need to allow probably no more than 13 points per game in order to have a winning record, and that's just not possible with how high powered the offenses are in the league.

    There is absolutely 0 chance either would be fired if the Jets go 9-7. In fact I think it would take 3-13 or worse for something like that to happen. Woody has never held anyone accountable before and it will take an epic Kotitian fail of a season for him to get the type of media and fan pressure that would lead him to actually fire his GM. Remember that Terry Bradway is still in this organization as a key decision-maker on personnel. This is not a results-oriented owner.

    I just don't see how we go better than 6 and 10.

    6 wins

    Sweep Miami - only because it's a rookie QB
    Seattle
    St. Louis
    Indianapolis - rookie QB

    Steal another one somewhere, but that's it.

    So far we have 55 estimates for next season:

    average W: 8.6
    average L: 7.4
    OK then. I'm at 8. And 8.

    I was originally thinking 10 - 11 wins with the D and new OC. If we don't fix the RT position that could easily cost us 3 games and possibly a QB.

  16. #116
    Yea I'm with you on that. What a difference a week makes. I was thinking 11 with the easy schedule but it could get ugly before it gets better if it gets better. right now I'm thinking 8-10 but that's very optimistic

  17. #117
    I'm still at 10. Our D can prop this team up with our schedule... We'll blow a game or 2 we shoulda won and win one we shouldn't have...

  18. #118
    10-6 - This defense will be the best one Rex's had since he's been here, even though the offense may be the worst one since '09. But the D will keep us in just about every game. Plus, the schedule looks pretty easy especially compared to last year.

  19. #119
    4-12 or 5-11.
    Blow the team up and start again. Oh well.

    0-15-1

    maybe 0-14-2 at best
