    Jets could be #1 in the AFC east this decade.

    http://www.boston.com/sports/football/patriots/extra_points/2010/01/a_power_shift_i.html

    Although I abhor the idea, but this article does touch up on great points. They have several playmakers in O, D and Sp. T. Great group of LB. Shut down CB. Great RB. In a season or so, Sanchez would become the player that he is supposed to be, but even if he doesn't, they have play makers in other areas to compensate. It's a young team that has done so well in the draft as well as FAgency (Bart Scott). They do so well that no one is talking about 08 bust Gholston. In comparison, we generally have duds in the draft, keep trading down and get 'value' players, who value if we want to trade them would be a pack of gum. Heck, teams might give us a pick to keep playing Wilhite at CB. We have no legitimate 2nd WR, no OLB, no good ILB after Mayo, Ok bunch of CB (if Bodden is resigned and Butler lives up to his myth of being a 1st round talent). DL has Wilfork, who may not be with us in 2012.
    With Jets doing so well, and Miami havng drafted well and Henne performing like a future franchise QB, we do have worries.
    This uncapped year could be a boon if Mr. Kraft wants to open up his wallet. Sign plenty of great FA and pay them big sign on bonus and hope we can get back to our top spot. Every team goes through this stage when they are no more the power house they thought they were. Either do something drastic to re-claim the last spot or roll and die.
    If not, we are going to be competing with Buffalo for the last spot in AFC east! Same Bills who went to 4 consecutive SB in 90s.

    ....easy there killer, it's a little fast to be jumping ship.  The Patriots, unlike Buffalo, are a very well run organization.  The patriots were aware that a rebuilding process would need to take place and they essentially got a jump on it cutting their losses before this season.  if the team could go 11-5 with a no-name QB and 10-6 and win the division when they're REBUILDING, you can't ask for much more.  Reports of their demise are seriously exaggerated!

    That's not to disagree with the point that the division is now competitive - because the Jets and Dolphins are good.  But that's how the NFL is always supposed to work.  Just because the Pats can't expect to cakewalk every year doesn't mean they'll be relegated to the cellar....

    Long term predictions about who will be the best team in the AFC east this decade are DUMB. Who knows if there will be even be an NFL after next season. Things change in the NFL. One slip on a bad grass surface in Houston can change careers forever. How can the defending champion Steelers lose only one starter from last years team and not make the playoffs? Or the Giants go 8-8? Or the NFC South with yet a different team as the division champs?

    And IF I crapped gold, my turds would be worth about $400 an ounce. What's your point? WAY too many "if"s. Let's wait until they post a double digit win season before we start worrying about them.

    The sky is not falling

    Some good news and optimism

     A run like the Pats have typically ends  when the QB and/or head coach leaves.

    People forget how young Brady was when they won SB's.  Elway was 37 when he won his first SB.  Young was 33,  Montana was 26 when he won his first SB, Brady had 3 SB trophies at 27.  This team can rebuild (and they are) and still have Brady in his prime for another 6-8 years.  

    The future is of this organization is good, the old players couldn't last forever, at some point they had to go, and we knew there would be growing pains.  The worst is over, they are in good draft position this year, only a couple free agents who could leave,  Brady's contract falls on an uncapped year, several promising young guys on the team now who didn't play a lot to start this year (Vollmer, Tate, Edelman, Butler, Crable).

    This team will be on top next year.

    Yeah, not too many people making fun of the color code system for sanchez. Their d is helping them a lot....if they improve on offense, they'll be a solid team.

    Time for the Patriots to make some serious changes, or they'll be left behind.

    There D is stacked with 30 ish  aged players.... Its win know or never for the Jets !!  You guys have to look at Jenkins, Pace, Ellis etc they won't be around for too much longer.
    As for Dirty Sanchez the jury states he aint a top 15 QB at the moment.

    BB has more draft picks, More free agent picks and a better QB in tow. Bring on Cryin Ryan and dirty Sancez next year ASAP.Those b***** will be taken down faster then Leons panties are  when his boyfriend comes home

    Re: Jets could be #1 in the AFC east this decade.

    Going by the Jets' season records since the last time that they were in the AFC Championship game, I think that the Jets are no shoe in for anything.

    The Jets were able to back into the playoffs based on the decisions of TWO teams to "rest" players. They beat a bad Bungles team (a team that has enjoyed the same lack of success over the years as the Jets) and the San Diego Chokers. I'll give them credit for beating a playoff team on the road but even the casual NFL fan knows that San Diego Chokers fade in the playoffs no matter where the game is played.

    Let's see how the Jets do this weekend before we start to predict anything from New York's second class football team. They faded for a decade after their run in 1998 and I'd expect the same moving forward.

    Re: Jets could be #1 in the AFC east this decade.

    I agree Hoyle, we have more ammo to continue to get better.  Heck we pick BEFORE the Jests this year.  Plus we have more high picks than they do for this AND next year.  This off season we dont have limitation on FAs which will also help us gain greatly on them.  The Jests have a good base right now, but many big contracts that will effect them once the cap is back, plus age will also come into play at some point like it did with many of our former stars.

    The Jets are the NFL equivalent of a one-hit wonder. They really weren't good enough to get to the post-season this year on their own and without help. This is a passing league and unless they can switch from run to pass they're not going very far.  I was at the game in Foxboro and the Jets got their arses handed to them. I think its a little early to make predictions because of this "Cinderella story".

    The AFC East is going to be the best division for the next few years.  It's going to be hard for a division winner to get 12 wins.

    As it has been previously mentioned, hold off on those parimutual bets on the JESTS!

    Need I remind you of what happens when you get a injured QB? (Brady in 2008.) Or a top WR getting a season ending "field" injury (a la Welker)? How about multiple i juries on the OL (would kind of stunt the growth of your running game, eh?), plus injuries to your defense in general (will guarandamtee that you wouldn't be the #1 D overall).

    Then there's the draft. With the JESTS! traditional picking in the teens and higher, what assurance do you have that their drafts will be as productive as the Pats' have been over thears to MAINTAIN a divisional dominamnce IF they could start achieving this?

    Save this garbage for when and if the JESTS! ever win the division. The schedule is all pre-set and determined year to year, with teh exception of 2 "swing games", played against the the two division opponents that finished in teh same position you did the year prior. This year, the JESTS! swing teams were the Raid-uhs (5-11; got shut out), and the Bengals in week #17, when they rolled over and became Paper Tigers.)  Two of their 9 wins; hardly against solid opponents.

    To determine a decade's worht of predictions and success, you need a base. ANd teh JESTS! have yet to develope one, unless you call back to back 9-7 seasons a "success". Well, for teh JESTS! it could be successful........

    Ah, yes, the moaning and groaning starts in earnest.

    The Pats this year have been one heck of a Jekyl & Hyde team.  We never knew which team would show up and if there is one constant they showed this year, they couldn't REALLY beat the better teams in the league.  So, they lose to the Ravens and we see the Jets are in the AFCCG.  What makes this even worse, the Jets are playing the Colts, the two most hated teams on this site.  In the end, it is all about making plays and winning.  We can carp all we want about how the Jets got into the playoffs, but, guess what?  Once they were in they won the games they played.  I guess some of your forgot the Pats of '01 huh?  NO ONE remembers the record of the '07 Giants, only that they beat an 18 - 0 Pats.  Winners don't come with asterisks, unless you are out of town Pats haters who have placed an asterisk to the Pats the entire previous decade!

         How the Jets fare this decade may well rest on the bulky knees of QB Mark Sanchez: http://www.nypost.com/p/sports/jets/doctor_visit_for_mark_DHx7p94Ya9ylKMDrFVFSVP.

         Keep in mind that the Jets have their own problems on offense and defense. Offensive linemen Alan Faneca and Damien Woody, and RB Thomas Jones, are old. OLB Vernon Gholston is a bust, and is likely to be released. 

         Its' easy to overrate the Patriots' problems and underrated those of opposing teams, when we only keep close track of the Patriots.

    One surprising postseason run does not a decade make.  If you took the cinderella team in the playoffs each year and assumed that team would repeat their success just in the following season you would be a very wrong person.

         Word out of NY is that Jets' QB Mark Sanchez will likely undergo surgery to stabilize his left knee. Is this Joe Namath all over again?: http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/football/jets/2010/01/28/2010-01-28_new_york_jets_quarterback_mark_sanchez_likely_to_have_surgery_on_his
    _left_knee.html


         In addition, the Jets will be hindered in improving their team due to the absence of a new collective bargaining agreement. Since the Jets finished in the top 8 this season, they will be greatly restricted in their ability to sign free agents: http://www.nj.com/jets/index.ssf/2010/01/ny_jets_gm_mike_tannenbaums_pl.html

    The Jets are in the playoffs because of a fluke and won a couple games. They were a 7-9 that made the playoffs. Just another Flavor of the Week.
