The New York Jets in the last few years earned a power ranking such as that above; not so in 2014.
Outside of themselves no one has regained confidence in this once playoff caliber team.
Actually that’s a false statement; The fans as well as the coaches are well aware of the potential here. Potential that was not here the last two years.
Yes, The New York Jets Defensively are outstanding – again.
Third against the run last year they very well might be first in 2014.
The” SONS OF ANARCHY “ are intact, but this year they have added depth -veteran depth.
The front seven almost dares you too run against them.
The defensive backfield has also added depth, rookie and veteran, too many to mention here without showing you the numbers. All have one common goal in mind – stopping the Deep ball.
The Jets, the teammates, know who they face this year and they intend to make them not only one dimensional, but they’ll have to earn each and every pass completion.
The New York Jets have bolstered their offense.
Starting with an upgrade over the departed Austin Howard – Breno Giacomini doesn’t see himself getting pushed around like Howard was.
Brian Winters is in his second year at the position and has progressed nicely this camp.
There is Oday Aboushi to contend with too, a man chomping at the bit to make his mark.
QB-Geno Smith will get his precious seconds to make his reads this season. He’s learning from Michael Vick, a man who already knows this offense.
The Jets have real Quarterback depth for the first time in along time. He’s been given the time necessary to gel with his wide receivers and it appears to be working.
He didn’t have a grasp of the timing last year or the players to make up for those shortfalls. That too has changed.
The wide receiver group has been revamped, adding Eric Decker and a host of others while they’ve kept Kerley and Cumberland, last year’s passing leaders.
Stephen Hill is out to prove himself this year, David Nelson is back along with Salas.
The tight ends are shaking out, we named Cumberland, now add Zach Sudfeld, a man who seems to be making the leap this year.
Sure, the Rookie Jace Amaro is still learning his routes but his ceiling is incredible.
Ranking this team 22nd is a travesty and shows poor insight.
The offensive backfield alone is stacked with both power and speed.
IVORY and POWELL can power the ball forward as CHRIS JOHNSON adds that outside speed. Daryl Richardson adds yet another piece to this solid puzzle.
Nick Folk Is money, pure and simple. He’ll try again for that perfect season.
Using this group in a spread offense will be difficult to defend AT the very least. At the most, if these players indeed play to their potential, the JETS are playoff bound.
Let’s wait a moment before condemning this team yet again this year.
