Interesting stat of the day:


The last time the Jets were 3rd in the league in scoring was 1982!

Since that season, the Jets have only had 1 season where they finished top 5 in scoring...1998

The other 8 times the Jets were in the top 5 in scoring all came prior to 1980.

That is the team I grew up with...they could usually score but didn't always have a good D.

@a57se @UncleJoesJetFarm You obviously have mistaken me for some one who gives a sh!t  According to some here, everything I post is ridiculous, so what is another grain on the beach, lol

That's funny since they haven't posted their Pats preview yet.

I watched some of the Pats game v Carolina (couldn't stand the blatant Pats cheering by the announcers so I limited my exposure to them) and they look very good. Their Defense looks for real even without a big lead and their offense can beat you in several ways....they are going to be a tough nut to beat for us this season.

One of the dumber moves Leon Hess made...and there were a ton of them.

@a57se @Bent Dividing each "performance of note" between "breakdown" and "signature stat/play" is something I haven't seen before.

When Sanchez drove for a score against them their backup linebackers were TERRIBLE in coverage.  If they get a few injuries in the LB corps, that could be a weakness.


DL depth is an issue for them too because they've had a few injuries.


Pretty much their season will hinge on Brady.  If he looks like the old man he did during parts of last season, they'll underachieve, but if he's back to his best, you know they'll contend.

@UncleJoesJetFarm @Bent That's like judging how much you like a hamburger from a restaurant solely on what other people write in the review section. 


Try watching the games and coming up with conclusions on your own like we all do, without relying on sorting out other people's opinions to come up with your own.

Well, everything except the posts within the comments of which you leave the links.

@Bent @a57se Brady had new pieces at wr to break in, now Gronk is back and the rookies from last season were vastly improving and have a solid year under their belt now. Also their D will be much improved. We know about their beefed up secondary, but they got back a lot of key defensive players who were injured last season. 


Even with Brady having no Gronk and young Wrs, the Pats offense was still the second best in the entire league at putting up points and Brady had a 6 game stretch of putting up almost 300 passing yards! I bet most teams wish they were that weak!

@Bent @a57se 

Well let's see...they underacheived with "Old man" looking Brady last year to the tune of 3rd in scoring and 7th in Yards while winning 12 games and losing in the AFC Championship game...

.I hope they don't underacheive that much this year...

That is an excellent analogy DRFC. I look at reviews all the time trying to find go to spots here in Houston and most are disappointments...

@a57se @Bent He didn't look like an old man all year, just at certain points.

That IS an excellent analogy.


Not such an excellent analogy: "rusty as rust".


Okay, that was a simile not an analogy, but come on Joey, surely you can find something better to indicate a level of rustiness than "rust".


You could have mentioned your old tractor or something.

No, there was no tie, they were third all by themselves.

Denver was no. 1 Chicago was no. 2 and NE was no. 3

@a57se @UncleJoesJetFarm From the bottom? All jokes aside, I expect a mid pack offense this season or very close to it and that is moving in the right direction.

@a57se @Bent @UncleJoesJetFarm No, I did look up scoring, I just missed on a few teams that had outscored them.  My bad.  No idea where they were in yards.


I bet that 1986 team was right up there until late in the season.  And in 2008 they finished 9th even with a horrible last five games, so maybe they were up there too.

@a57se @Bent @UncleJoesJetFarm They only scored 61 points in the last five games.

They'd been averaging 27.5 per game prior to that, so if they maintained it all season (not that outrageous because they scored 55 in two postseason games) that would have been 441 points which would have been #1.


Also, their 1985 total would have been #4 in 1986.  For some reason scoring dropped off that year.
