In Response to Re: Jets Safeties
[QUOTE]In Response to Jets Safeties : So, here's the thing. You are an idiot. What you remember about the Jets last year is that they finished with the best D in the NFL averaging about 14.9 pts a game. And you likely recall that D holding both the Bengals and the Chargers to 14 pts a piece in the playoffs before getting beat by the Colts. What you are just a little (actually, a lot)too dumb to understand is that after game 12 last year they were averaging about 17.5 pts a game and then gave up only 28 points over the last 5 games. Currently, the Jets D is giving up 17 points a game. Let me do the math for you, that means they are actually outperforming last year's team. But for arguments sake, lets say that you are not a complete moron and that the Jets D is worse, say only the third best defense (it's current rank) instead of the historically great D it finished with last year. Are you telling me that in spite of Poole being so awful and Jim Leonard's inability to cover and Kyle Wison being a bust, JT being the worst FA signing of the year (maybe second to Poole?) and Gholston being the biggest bust in the history of the NFL and the Jets only having 4 more sacks than the patsies and Cromartie's inability to tackle and the patsies having more picks and BB being the only great defensive mind in the NFL that the Jets are only 2.1 ppg worse than last year. I'll take that. Question is, why is this patsie D, in the third year of 'rebuilding', still so bad?

You keep babbling about stats as if numbers are a direct translation to a fact.
Guess what, Corky?
If you ever had a legitimate job where you had to look at data, run numbers and analyze something, you'd know numbers always only tell you a portion of the story.
But, since you work at 7-11 and never finished high school, this is a major conceptual problem for you.
You equate data as fact. You probably also play in 5 fantasy football leagues and pretend each fantasy player that produces is better than a great teammate who actually is a complete player v.s. a stats guy like a TO, don't you, little Fatty?
In 2009, NE's D allowed 17.8 points per game last year, led the NFL in red zone rushing TDs allowed last year, and were ranked 11th (I think, would have to go back and look), overall.
But, was the 2009 really that good? I don't think so.
This D this year is actuallY BETTER than last year's because they get more of a pass rush (even though it's not great), have more experience, more depth, more speed and ahtleticism and create more turnovers. Plus, they are MUCH improved in red zone D.
This is the part where NE is FAR BETTER than the lowly Jets D in the red zone.
Keep looking at your stats sheets like all the other fans did of the COlts, Steelers, Chargers, et al, during the '00s.
They all looked at Pro Bowl nods and stat sheets and became increasingly angry asking what made NE so good.
Just like those particular fans don't get it, you don't either.
So, you keep looking only at stats as to why you think the Jets are better than NE and are "better built" in 2010. Laughable.
