  • Do we have any chance of catching the Pats?

    Something that's really frustrating is that, as soon as the Pats start to regress and the Jets start to catch up with a young, rising team, the Patriots have a monster offseason. Adalius will really help their D and theyve really given Brady some targets with Welker and Stallworth. All that is really really scaring me. So do you think we could catch up to the Patriots in the near future? I'd like to say yes, but I really don't think its realistic (at least for next season), although I still feel we're a playoff team. Discuss...

      i see absolutely no reason that we can't...because they are the pats everyone sees their high spending as being aggressive and having a game plan and going after what they want...well san fran did that, they got a younger top notch defensive player (which isn't an 80 million dollar contract its a 64 ish million still alot but i digress) they sign tully banta cain and a few other players, but to everyone else it seems as tho there just throwing money around, if they had won 3 superbowls people would be saying that they were brilliant and being aggressive...i agree that thomas was a great pickup for them and welker and stallworth will add to bradys recieving corp..but they shelled out some pretty big money for them..especially for a stallworth whos never caught for 1000 yards, nagged by injuries his entire career and is in the substance abuse program..granted they could turn into an elite reciving corp with brady at the helm and welker is a perfect slot reciever, but they also lost graham...before the draft i still feel now our recieving corp is better, our safeties are only going to get better, our running game i have a feeling will be better now with thomas and barnes and a year under leons belt (also they have a huge loss without corey dillon, they wont be able to eat the clock up like they did with the lead in the 4th quarter..assuming they have it this year haha i still feel that we match up pretty well and aren't as far back as everyone thinks...plus i think brian schoettenheimer is a genius and im excited to see what hes gonna do with TJ and leon in the backfield.....maybe im being to optomistic but i see no reason we should go into the season feeling were so undermatched, right now everyone is 0-0

        as denny green would say...If you wanna crown 'em then crown their ass!
        QB, OG, OLB, WR, CB, MLB, RB, FS

        Exactly Why The Jets were the Coolest Team in the NFL under Rex, but Bowles is the man-see Arians speech:

          The problem is, they were who we thought they were. :(

            WELL THAT'S WHY WE TAKE THE DAMN FIELD.


            Now that we have solidified our running game, it will open up the passing game a little more. Not only have we caught up to them, but we have surpassed them.

              I wouldn't go as far to say we surpassed them but we have definetley improved our backfield. Sadly, thats about it. We've added other signings but I don't think any will make as much as an impact as the Pats signings. My thinking is, if the Pats were better than us this season and had a better offseason (still up for debate, especially with the draft) than they will have an overall better team than us. Of course I'm still optimistic that when it's all said and done we'll be 2-0 in the series and have a better record.

                  If you think about it, our team last year was not very talented and we were adjusting to a new defensive scheme. Our defense really improved as the year went on, and we have a pretty young team that will continue to improve. We have a good coach and a good GM as well, we can really only improve (I could see us taking a small step back this year and really moving forwards after that). Plus, the Pats seem to be avoiding their strategy of not putting up big dollars and focusing on character players, which is why they've had the offseason they've had. I think eventually that could come back to bite them and that they will lose the environment they've had there that has helped them so much over the years. I think we definitely will catch up to the Patriots, maybe not this year but a few years (3-4) down the road, if not earlier. Plus as jetsfan3 said, Thomas Jones will have a tremendous impact on the offense and the team in general. He'll obviously improve the run game (which will improve anyway as D'Brick and Mangold get experience) which will open up the pass game AND keep the defense off the field and fresh.

                    I have been saying since the beginging of last season that we are 2 offseasons and drafts away from being a superbowl team. i also expected 6-10 last season. I think we will be a good team this year, win 10 games and be a wildcard team, maybe upset someone in the payoffs. But 2008 is the year of the Jets. This team needs its young players (mangold, ferguson) to reach their potential (which I think each will b pro-bowl calibar players in year 3) and get a treu nose tackle, another pass rusher from the OLB spot, and shore up the secondary. This team is going to be very good for very long time but were not there yet. But were 50 steps ahead of where we were last yr.

                        the pats have had an amazing offseason, they had 3 major concerns heading into it

                        1. WR position-that was addressed when adding stallworth and welker, now they have those 2 plus chad jackson (if he recovers from his injury which i think was an ACL injury) and gaffney who had a strong year and caldwell who had a strong year but bad postseason, that is a deep and impressive WR corps.....even though ours can be better if we get rid of mccareins and get a #3 option
                        2. aging and declinging LB-they added a great pass rushing OLB in adalius thomas who is old but still hes an amazing player, and now there reportedly highly interested in ed hartwell
                        3. CB position- they resinged asante, now they could use another CB but there still set in the secondary

                        and plus they still have 2 first round picks....im kinda worried

                          My first bold prediction of the year. I'm not saying we can, I'm saying we will catch the Patriots.

                            I know. They make all these great offsesaon moves and you would think they'd be in a bad draft situation. They aren't at all.

                              my main annoyance about all this offseason talk is, and goes for everyone not just the pats...TJ looks like an amazing addition for us Kenyon Coleman looks kinda risky and for the pats Welker looks like the perfect slot player, stallworth looks like the perfect deep threat, and adalius thomas looks like the perfect "utility" do it all type of all pro player...however TJ could get hurt, Koleman could have a breakout year, stallworth could hurt his hamstring again or get stuck in detox lol the thing is we have no idea how these offseason moves are gonna pan out i still think we aren't so far behind and i beleive the loss of corey dillon is gonna hurt them more than people are letting on..but thats just what i think who knows whats gonna happen
