    Does this mean the Jets win the 2069 SB?

    All numerology aside, if the Jets get at least average play from the Quarterback position next year, they have as a good a shot as they've had in a decade, IMO.

    Agree in general.

    Average QB play is 10 wins... IMO. Slightly better is 11.

    We've had absolute shyte under center for 5 years now. Two AFCCG appearances, and an average of 8.5 wins per season in that stretch. I'd say proper NFL Quarterbacking during that time would be a +3 win improvement.

    Not very scientific now is it, DDNY?

    It's a crappy division, although not as bad as some say. There are worse.

    Bingo! If someone were to tell me that Geno (assuming he's our 16 game starter) is NOT in the bottom half of the league in turnovers and QB rating then I'd almost guarantee 10 wins!

    The most remarkable thing about that run is that the two years the Pats didn't win the division they still had the best record.

    If the Pats don't win it again next year then some other team is going to have to step up. The Pats won't be falling back to the pack until Brady is gone.

    If things go back to the mean, the Pats are not shoe ins for another division title.
    Even the guys lost to injury aren't young studs bouncing back from injury, they are older players closer to the glue factory.
    Wilfork, Mayo, Kelly.
    Gronk is on what his 5th or 6th surgery?
    They also had one of those crazy azz home winning streaks but it was much different then it's ever been with comeback wins vs Miami, the Saints, and an improbable 24 point comeback vs Denver.
    They showed way more vulnerability in the AFC East winning a close game at home vs the Jets, losing to us on the road, losing to Miami on the road, squeaking by the Bills on the road in a game the Bills really handed to them.
    I see that being a lot closer to the norm as teams start forcing Brady into trying to throw longer routes.
    Teams are starting to squeeze the Pats offense into a smaller & smaller box.
    That's why I hope they lose Edelman in the offseason to free agency, that kid alone saved 3 losses for them with his short quickness & 3rd down conversions.

    Technically, there is not yet a "pattern". They'd have to fail to win the division in 2014 for a pattern to exist.

    When Brady finally retires then we can start talking about winning the division, until then? 11 wins is the worst they can do and 14 the best...this is coming from a REALISTIC Jets fan.

    Barring Geno, or someone else, becoming a Top 10 QB or Brady getting hurt, the Patriots will win 12+ and win the East.

    right on the money
