    DO you guys think the Jets are for real? They have arguably the best defense in the NFL and Sanchez has been looking good so far. Can they win that division and make a good playoff run, or will they crumble under pressure like Favre and that squad did?

    they can win the division,the dolphins aren't as good as last year, the Patriots are not the same anymore,the Bills are well the Bills,so why not,but they will hit some bumps in the road,Sanchez will have bad games and there coach is a jackass,very good coach but a jackass none the less.

      I think the Jets take east this year for sure. They only have to really worry about the Pats for the division, and they've already proven they can take them. They have a great defense and a great offensive line. It all starts up front, and that is where they are the most solid. I think they make a playoff run this year.

        I am thinking The Jets will implode mid-season. Just from looking at their offense, eventually their defense will get knicked up and worn down.

        Still think the Pats will take the division unless they dont find a creative way to better protect Brady or come up with a better offensice scheme

          [Jets] Jets Need a Win to Assure Playoff Spot

          HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (AP) -- The New York Jets started 5-0, something no other team in franchise history has done.

          And still, they may not make the playoffs. The Jets must win at St. Louis on Sunday to assure themselves of a wild-card berth in the AFC. If they lose, they need help to make it in the postseason.

          The Jets (10-5) have failed to clinch thanks to poor performances in big games, including a 23-7 loss to New England in which they could not muster much of anything. Now they find themselves in a familiar spot.

          In 2001 and 2002, when the Jets made the playoffs under coach Herman Edwards, they needed victories in their regular-season finales to advance to the postseason.

          "It seems like our team likes these situations," Chad Pennington said. "We like drama. We have definitely created a bunch of it."

          The Jets had a chance to clinch a spot with a victory over New England, but the game spun out of control quickly. After controlling the ball for most of the first quarter, the Jets had no points to show for it. But the Patriots did not make the same mistakes.

          New England led 13-0 at halftime, and the Jets were all but out of it. They had to rely on the pass in the second half, which led to a season-low in yards rushing with 46. They also tied for second-lowest total plays with 57, and had a paltry 279 yards of total offense.

          To avoid the embarrassment of failing to reach the postseason after such a strong start, all the Jets need to do is win. But if they lose, there might be trouble. They can still make it with a loss, coupled with a loss by either Buffalo or Denver.

          But if Buffalo beats Pittsburgh, Denver beats Indianapolis and the Jets lose, New York would miss the playoffs because the Bills hold the edge over their division rival based on common opponents.

          "We have the upper hand. All we have to do is win a game," Edwards said. "That should be your mind-set. I'm not going to rant and rave and do a pep rally and do a cheerleading drill. These guys are professionals. They know where they are at in this season."

          Some of them also know how it is to go into the final game of the season needing a victory. In 2001, the Jets needed to win at Oakland, a place that caused them problems.

          And they did. John Hall kicked a 52-yard field goal and the Jets made it to the first round, where they promptly lost to the Raiders. In 2002, the Jets overcame a 1-4 start and needed some help plus a win over Green Bay in the final to make the postseason.

          The help worked out. New England beat Miami, and the Jets trounced Green Bay 41-0 to give them the AFC East.

          "If you look at the last couple of times we've gotten to the playoffs, it's always down...

          New York Jets- a model for success?
          by Bar-bq
          The New York Jets have gone from duds to studs almost overnight. How did it happen? The answer is obvious. Their offensive line is bandied with talent, and has meshed together over the course of the season. They have a veteran quarterback and Thomas Jones at tailback. It also helps that their defense makes a play of three every so often.

          So, what I propose, is that for the Rams to return to form, we should follow the Jets recipe for success.

          It looks like this.

          2006 NFL Draft

          2 Marquee Offensive Linemen taken early from schools with a history of NFL Success. OT D'Brickashaw Ferguson from Virginia, and Nick Mangold of Ohio St. What's more important, they've learnt on the fly, starting every game since being drafted.

          2007/08 Offseason, Free Agency

          Alan Faneca, OG.
          Damien Woody, RT.

          That's two more marquee Offensive Linemen pulled from free agency. They've not missed a beat. And in case you weren't doing a mental check up above, we have the other pieces in place... almost.

          We have the veteran QB.
          We have a star Runningback.
          Our defense *might* get better- certainly with a further injection of talent.

          Like it or not, we're in rebuilding mode. Who the coach will be... who knows? I'd like to think it's a coach who has a defense/run the ball mentality.. The draft this year looks to be riddled with elite OT prospects. As unimpressive as he's been, maybe Jacob Bell pulls it together with some talent around him. Free Agency could well be a goldmine. But if we at least follow the Jets measure in terms of personnel, we could find ourselves right back in the mix, maybe sooner than we think.

          December 29, 2004 -- THE JETS like to remind us of the small progresses they make, the way the culture in Hempstead is so much better than it used to be. They seem proud as hell to win 10 games. They seem delighted at the prospect of making the playoffs for a third time in four years.
          Bully for the Jets!

          They aren't a football snuff film any more!

          Can that possibly be enough? Can that possibly be the length and breadth of this team's ambitions, especially in a season like this one, founded in such promise, grounded in such early prosperity? Is that really all the Jets believe we should judge them on? That it's been a while since they inspired their fans to wear paper bags on their heads?

          They really need to be more than this. They need to expect more of themselves than this, to demand more of themselves than this. They need to be held accountable for more than this, especially now. The next few weeks loom as an ominous crossroads for who they are and what they want to be.

          Forget the playoffs. They'd better make the playoffs. They'd better get after the Rams early and hit them in the mouth and jump out to the kind of lead that will inoculate them to the kind of weirdness Jets teams are so susceptible to. The Rams are a lousy team that let the Eagles' JV hang around almost to the final gun Monday night.

          It isn't about making the playoffs, not with this Jets team, not in this season. In a now league, the Jets constantly inspire thoughts about the future, about next week, next season, the next five years. They constantly are a work in progress.

          The fact is, there is no guarantee the Jets ever will be better than they are right now. There is no certainty they ever are going to have the confluence of strengths Hall of Fame running back, occasionally brilliant quarterback, above-average line, solid if unspectacular defense any time in the near future.

          The NFL is a fluid league, players coming, players going. There is no such thing as a five-year plan anymore, or even a three-year plan. You get a shot to compete for something special, you'd better take your shot. You'd better not leave any tricks in your back pocket.

          The biggest lie the Jets can sell you right now is that this season is a building block for something better down the road. No way. They are a now team. They have enough talent to compete with the AFC elite in a way that belies what they've done when they've actually played those teams this year. That talent won't be around forever.

          Curtis Martin isn't getting younger. Neither is Kevin Mawae. Lamont Jordan probably will be somewhere else next year. John Abraham might, too. Soon enough, the usual machinations of the NFL square dance will sparkle, and the roster will spin around, and who knows if the same elements will be in place the way they are now?

          [Jets] Paul could go

          Hackett in firing line if Jets flop
          Jets Insider

          By RICH CIMINI

          If Paul Hackett (l.) can't get offense in gear for Herman Edwards, Jets fans may get their wish and be rid of embattled coordinator.

          When the Jets' season is over, whether it ends Sunday in St. Louis or somewhere in the playoffs, Herman Edwards will sit down with the brain trust and tackle the one big question that should (and will) occupy their thoughts from January to July:
          What can we do to close the gap with the Patriots?

          Answer: Improve the offense. Duh.

          Their solution: If they don't make the playoffs, hard to fathom for a team that started 5-0, Edwards almost certainly will ask Paul Hackett to hand over his playbook. If the Jets qualify, then lay an egg in the first round, it could be the same outcome.

          Put your ear to the walls at Weeb Ewbank Hall, and you can hear the rumblings. The embattled offensive coordinator is starting to look like the fall guy - if, indeed, they need a fall guy. Publicly, Edwards has remained supportive of Hackett, but the Jets' coach is troubled by the lack of point production.

          Asked Monday if there's a common denominator in their five losses, Edwards listed their point totals in those games: 7, 17, 17, 6 and 7. He rattled them off as if they're ingrained in his brain. They are. "Obviously, we didn't light up the scoreboard against those teams," said Edwards, who almost fired Hackett a year ago.

          Those teams - the Patriots (twice), Ravens, Bills and Steelers - happen to be ranked among the top seven in scoring defense, so it's not like the Jets are failing against a bunch of 98-pound weaklings.

          So how do they fix it? Because nine of the starters are locked into long-term, big-money contracts, the Jets won't have much flexibility in terms of improving personnel. If anything, the talent level could slip, with RT Kareem McKenzie and backup RB LaMont Jordan headed toward free agency. So the question becomes, if you can't change the players, how do you get better? Usually, the team changes the coach.

          A year ago, Edwards got rid of players and coaches on defense, hiring Donnie Henderson to rebuild the unit. How did it work out? Like they say in the beer commercial, "Brilliant!" Henderson's success, no doubt, will factor into Edwards' decision on Hackett.

          Hackett is signed through 2005, meaning his contract will have to be addressed in the offseason. No one wants a lame-duck coordinator. So it will be re-up or cut bait. You could make a decent case in support of Hackett. He has gone the last seven games with Quincy Carter and a banged-up Chad Pennington at quarterback. He doesn't have a threat at tight end. As for those conservative game plans, which seem to emerge every time they play...
