We all know that the New York Jets did not play up to our standards last year. They went 8-8, missed the playoffs, and had many chemistry problems. Long story short, the Jets were completely EMBARRASSED last year. They made fools out of themselves, and the media has helped feed to that negative perception of the team. The media and the fans think that the Jets are a joke of a team right now, and who knows? Players and coaches within the league might think the same thing.
During Rex's first two years here, he was able to reach the AFC Championship game both seasons. He obviously had a lot of success early on. I feel like our whole organization took that success for granted, and grew complacent. Our players didn't seem to have the same fire that they did back in 2010, and the FO did nothing to improve our team during free agency.
However, this team is getting torn apart from every angle right now. They have their backs up against the wall, and frankly, I LOVE it. How do we respond? I think this whole organization is tired of being the laughing stock of the NFL. I think the players will come out with a big chip on their shoulders, with something to prove. I expect our team to have the eye of the tiger this season. I expect to see an improved offense, now that we have a deep threat in Stephen Hill, a new (hopefully better) O-Coordinator in Tony Sparano. I expect Tebow to light a fire under Sanchez's ass, and in turn, will result in a more consistent season, as we start to see flashes of brilliance from our starting QB much more often. I expect Mcknight to contribute more. I expect to have a better pass rush, with Coples joining the squad, and Maybin apparently bulking up. I expect Revis, to be well, Revis.
All in all, I expect to see a team, who will come out swinging, and give every opponent everything we've got this year. We've got our backs up against the wall, and I expect us to respond in a positive way. I obviously can't guarantee a superbowl win, let alone a superbowl appearance this year, or even a playoff appearance. However, I can say with confidence that we will see a team much more focused on winning the big game this year, than we did last year.
