I'm more concerned w/ getting our D back among the elite than I am w/ the offense.
    A lot of people are quick to point out that Dallas had a top 5 O with Sparano in response to those who question the hire. I don't think that means much since he didn't run the O by himself and has never been a full time OC.

    The same could have been said about Haley before he went to AZ, but Haley went on to run a top 5 O with AZ before becoming a head coach. Sparano was never a full time OC and the Dolphins highest offensive ranking in his 4 years here was 12th. Other teams D would talk about how predictable the O was and how they knew what plays were coming. That doesn't mean much either since he was a head coach and not an OC with the Dolphins, but I think it is just as valid of an argument as those who will argue that he ran a top 5 O in Dal.

    You have said the correct response to the hire before, which is I don't know. I don't think anyone does.

Anything can happen w/ teams 2-4 in the div but the track record tells us the Jets are significantly better than the other two. Remember, the Jets had a bad season and still finished 2 games ahead of both teams, don't expect a 2nd bad season in a row. Not w/ this talent and coaching.
    Really? How many AFC East titles do the Jets have? You're joking right? The Jets biggest success is losing two back to back Championship games and failing to get to or even lose one Super Bowl. You should be happy with that for another 42 years. Do you have any understanding that the Jets managment isn't even worried about football anymore, they are more concerned with Front page stories, second rate QB's and loud mouth coaches. The Jets are on their way to a 6-10 season, enjoy.

    Who cares about AFC East titles? ask BB and Brady iof they would trade those div titles for multiple chances to reach the SB.

    2009 advanced TWO rounds further than NE
    2010 beat up NE in NE in the div rd

    Wow, as a Jet fan you have so little to be happy about that you create wins out of failuers to wave your pom-poms at. Here are the facts, since 2000, the PAtriots are 17-9 against the jets including 1-1 in the playoffs. The Patriots are 3-2 in the Super bowls, the jets 0 for, the Patriiots are 5-1 in AFC Championship games, the Jets are 0-2. You can pretend all you like, heck if I was a Jet fan I would be wearing a tinfoil hat just like most of them, but the reality is if the best you can do is hang your hat on loses in big games as something to be proud of, then you prove my point for me.

    Who cares about 2 AFCC game losses? We are not talking about the chance to reach the Super Bowl, we are talking about 2 losses in those games. We already know the results of those games. If I didn;t know what was going to happen, as a fan I would much rather have the thrill of watching my team advance and have a chance at going to the Super Bowl than to have an AFCE title. But if I am just looking back, knowing it was going to be a loss either way, I'll take the division title.

    Just curious, do you think the Broncos were better than the Steelers since they advanced further in the playoffs?

    You won't see him around here for awhile, like most Jet fans he wants to talk crap before his team has done anything worthy of crowing about. I have no problems with any other fans from our division, I even don't mind seeing the Bills and Fins do well when it doesn't impact the Pats, but Jet fans are a the worst. They act like their team has been at the top of the NFL because they won a single SuperBowl 43 years ago, when it wasn't even called the Super Bowl. Too funny.

    Awesome, where have I debated the Jets have been anywhere near NE since 2000? but in recent years they have been and advanced further in 2 of the last 3 seasons. The Jets have more playoff wins(double the amount) than NE in the last 3 years and whipped NE at NE in the div rd.

    One year, one game can be a fluke but back to back years? and the Jets didn't need OT at home to beat NE, they beat them pretty handily on the road in the div rd.

    I'd rather earna WC spot and make the title game than win the div and lose my first game. I don't know anyone associated w/ a team who would say otherwise.

    So you think rex would rather win a div title ad lose his first playoff game than have a chance to play one game for the SB? We all want the div title but if you lose your first game what is the point?

    Some guy who just started posting after NE made the SB is saying I won't be around? come on.

    Apparently you don't remember all the SB titles NE was winning pre Brady.

    I do, and by getting there it was two more times than the Jets have been in the last 43 years before Brady came along. Hang on to the playoff win buddy, hope it keeps you warm, you've got some rough road ahead with the future N. Y. Jests.

    yes it will be really rough w/ a team comprised of mostly in their prime players but NE will be fine in 3-4 years when Brady is at the end of his career. Fans like you will disappear when Brady is gone.
