    And if the win 5-9 games you and the rest of the doom and gloomers will moan and groan over some reason Rex or Woody made them finish lower than the should have and should be gone anyway.

    Wait, I didn't realize this. I keep reading that the game is played differently than it was in '09 & '10

    After a 2012 season in which the New York Jets won six games and finished the year 30th in the NFL in total offense, fans of Gang Green no doubt figured the team had hit rock bottom.

    Unfortunately, it appears that rock bottom will be coming again in 2013.

    The biggest reason why is the one thing that separates the haves from the have-nots in the NFL, and the playoff teams from the bottom feeders.

    Quarterback play.

    The battle to start under center for the Jets may end up being over before it started, at least if recent reports are any indication.

    As Mike Vorkunov of The Newark Star-Ledger reports, rookie second-round pick Geno Smith is having trouble learning the nuances of Marty Morninwheg's West Coast offense.

    Quarterbacks coach David Lee stated that there are "no similarities whatsoever" between New York's offense and the one Smith ran at West Virginia, and while head coach Rex Ryan tried to put a positive spin on things he admitted that Smith is far from ready for the NFL.

    His steps -- dropbacks -- his mechanics footwork wise weren't dialed in the way they'll have to be at this level. I think some of that is your five and seven step drops, it's all new to him. But sometimes you can't even notice it. Because when he's on, the guy is absolutely terrific. We knew that it's not an easy process but it's one that I have confidence that when we get to Cortland, I think when the thing goes I think you're going to see the guy keep improving and improving and improving.

    Ryan also confessed that Smith is "struggling with the basic things". That throws a large bucket of cold water on the prospects of Smith starting early in the 2013 season, which leaves a single, horrifying reality.

    Mark Sanchez will probably be the Jets starting quarterback in Week 1.

    Sanchez was an absolute nightmare in 2012. His confidence was shattered by a never-ending torrent of badly thrown passes and turnovers. By season's end he'd been benched, he had twice as many turnovers as touchdowns, and he ranked next to last at the quarterback position according to Pro Football Focus (subscription required).

    At least one player thinks that Sanchez can bounce back this year, as wide receiver Santonio Holmes threw his support behind the fifth-year pro according to Jane McManus of ESPN.

    [Sanchez is] going to be our guy. Coaches brought him back and they kept him on this team for a reason. He's a great leader and he's got great potential and he's excited about this season upcoming, and so am I.

    Not to rain on Santonio's parade, but I'm pretty sure the cap hit the Jets would have incurred by releasing Sanchez thanks to the ridiculous extension he signed last year had a lot to do with the Jets keeping him around.

    It's also a little ironic to hear this enthusiasm coming from a player who just admitted that he may not be ready for the start of the season according to Chris Wesseling of NFL.com.

    And that's the thing. The Jets' issues where the passing attack is concerned go way beyond the quarterback position.


    Holmes' Lisfranc injury leaves his Week 1 availability up in the air. Stephen Hill, who the Jets are counting on to emerge as an offensive threat in his second NFL season, has been on and off the practice field while nursing a knee injury. Dustin Keller departed for Miami in free agency, leaving undrafted free agent Jeff Cumberland as the team's top tight end.

    The offensive line was an issue in 2012 as well. According to Football Outsiders, while the Jets were an effective run blocking unit they were terrible in pass protection, ranking 30th in the NFL while allowing 47 sacks.

    Will the New York Jets win six games in 2013?

    Yes, the Jets signed free-agent guards Willie Colon and Stephen Peterman. However, expecting a huge improvement due to the addition of Pro Football Focus' (subscription required) 35th and 38th-ranked guards in 2012 is wishful thinking.

    In short, the entire New York passing offense is one big question mark (at best).

    "So what?" fans will ask. Win with defense and running the football. Rock it old school.

    That only goes so far. The bottom five teams in the NFL last year in passing offense (Kansas City, Minnesota, the Jets, Chicago and Arizona) were a combined 33-47. Take out the team that has an Adrian Peterson, and that number drops to 23-41.

    The Jets do not have an Adrian Peterson.

    The cold reality of today's NFL is that sooner or later, in order to win with any consistency, a team is going to have to be able to move the ball through the air.

    With Sanchez at quarterback, a shaky group of receivers and a leaky offensive line, there's little reason to think that the New York Jets are going to be able to do that in 2013.

    And that's going to make even hitting six wins this season a tall order.

    it's spot on not trash man life must be good with those green-colored glasses all the time.

Nick Mangold and Brandon Moore played angry, while Austin Howard found his feet as an NFL tackle. Still, a line can only do so much to put skill players in position to do good things, and in that regard the Jets are sorely lacking.

    Please explain this part They(jets oline) finished playing as well as any team. Against the Chargers(next to last game of season) the Jets oline gave up 11 sacks in one game. 11 sacks. Come on how can you still buy what Pff is selling. They lost all credibility when they said the jets oline was third best. Yea the 27th ranked offense and an oline that gave up 47 sacks- yet they threw the ball far less than most teams in 2012.

    With that kind of analysis what did they do put 32 teams in jar and pick their top 32 by what team they pulled out. Honestly does it make any sense as you watched every Jet game. That oline wasn't top ten and I will leave it at that. If the Jets oline was really third best would they have brought in two new guards. (why change it if it isn't broken)

    Who brought up the Raiders?

    11 sacks?

    By a raw QB who admitted he blew every line call and held the ball way too long on almost every sack.

    You need to watch the games. Take McElroy's game out the line looks better.

    I thought you only trolled in threads where the Raiders where discussed, brought up by Jets fans .

    Yes it is a little different but having a top 5 defense, solid run game and not turning the ball over are 3 basic attributes that will guarantee success in the NFL no matter what era you are playing in

    Wrong, the game is played the same way. There are no major rule changes in the past few years that have forced a change. No matter the way teams decide to attack. That change was brought on before Rex

    And that team was built on D. The rest is what you do need with a rookie QB and a good back behind a great line.

    11 sacks? Did the Jets oline give up 11 sacks Yes or no. When you're judging an oline what you throw that game out and yell do over.
    You claim you know football. Can you honestly say watching the Jet oline last year, that was the third best oline. Come on you saw some pretty good Olines a couple years ago(jets), and last year was not one of them. N mangold had a down year for his standard.

    So put down the pipe and actually re watch last years games and concentrate on the oline. The tape doesn't lie.

    That is the way I feel too. We do much better when the "experts" pick against us!

    Sg3 do you think Jets had the third best oline in football? Honestly can you say it with a straight face.

    JMO making a claim the Jets oline is third best in the league is just as crazy, as saying Butt fumbler is the third best Qb in the Nfl..

    I think the biggest question marks are the O-line and running game! If those two play up to or beyond expectations than we have a shot to be decent this season; oh and let's not forget we actually needs WR's who can catch the ball.

    the jets have been doomed for the last 44 yrs. 44 yrs of not even playing in the SB. and 4 afc championship game loses. this franchise is a loser

    The bleacher report says so and who can argue with the well known brilliance and reliability of the bleacher report.

    What with both the bleacher report AND football gurus such as SAR, sarasthustra and rextilleon all in agreement, the only solution is obviously to cancel the season and get ready for 2014
