In Response to Re: What the heck are the Jets doing?:
Jets Replaced: Faneca w/ Ducasse Washington w/ McKnight Richardson w/ Connor Jones w/ LT Shepard w/ Cromartie (w/ Wilson) Added: Mr. Drop (Edwards) Mr. Suspended (Holmes) At some point, the passing game may improved. The primary factor will be Sanchez. Will he be a 20+ int guy again? If so, 8 and 8 is the dream for the Jets. They're going to be far worse in the running game.

Kyle, you beat me too it. I was going to draw the same comparisons. The Jets did not improve significantly in the off season.
Thomas Jones is better than Tomlinson at this point in their careers
Washington is proven, McKnight is injury prone
Fanecca is a beast with tread left. Ducasse weakens the line at least this year
Jason Taylor is on the back nine
Holmes was an upgrade but could be a head ache too.
Wilson upgrades their return game and their already amazing secondary
Losing Rhodes and gaining Cromartie is a wash
With just 4 draft picks, the Jets did not get any younger. Their OL isn't as good. Their DL wasn't really improved. They are thin at TE.
The Dolphins on the other hand made some moves.
Getting Dansby was huge.
Getting Marshall was huge.
They had a solid draft. Add Misi, Edds and Odrick to that defense is scary. Their LB corps are as talented as there is. They have a talented young secondary led by Davis and they added Rashed Jones at S.
John Jerry will improve their interior OL.
I think the Dolphins pass the Jets this year. I think we stay on top given our draft. Our new TEs will be amazing. Spikes will bring attitude and run stuffing to the center of our D. The combination of Price/Tate/Holt/Patten solves our #3 WR need for now. I wish we did something at RB but I guess we think we can get one more year out of these old horses. McCourty will be an immediate impact on special teams and could beat out the other young CBs. While we don't have a dominate Seymour-esk DE, we added some proven veterans that more than make up for the loss of Green. We have THREE THIRD ROUND picks from the last 2 drafts that haven't played yet.
We added a directional punter that will improve our field position. All things considered I think the Pats and Dolphins improved the most. It will be a dog fight but I still think we are the team to beat in the AFC East until someone proves otherwise.
