Is there a realistic path to 10 wins in 2013?


68 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

As bleak as things look right now, is there any way (short of stealing the rights to Aaron Rodgers) that this Jets team can get to ten wins? As of right now, it's Rex and Sanchez and pray for the healthy return of Darrelle Revis.

Maybe if they get the killer pass rusher in the draft, and Matt Moore meshes with the OC-to-be-named-later, and if the new DC is a savant, etc etc... What would have to happen between now and next August for us to compete?

Or, as seems to be the common wisdom, are the 2013 Jets already doomed?

If the Jets win 10 games next year, I'll drink Chardonnay out of that crater Crusher calls a belly button at one of Joe's tailgates.

I hope new GM, whoever he may be, comes in taking the long view. If he does, 10 wins next season comes as a result of a hungry young roster and quite a bit of luck - but it probably doesn't come at all.

Yes, there is a path to 10 wins - the key for Rex & Jets is to get back to the formula that made them successful on '09 & '10.

1 - Rebuild the OL - I don't care what stats bitonti throws out, this line sucked. Use the first 2 draft picks on OG, RT. I would target Warmack from Alabama who is an absolute beast.

2 - The defense improves next season. Revis is back, Scott, Pace, Thomas, and E Smith are gone. Time for Rex to earn his money with new faces but the defense needs to improve.

3 - Stop turning the ball over (especially in the red zone) - this one is simple. most likely that means Sanchez needs to sit on the bench but without that much offensive firepower the Jets cannot afford to turn it over 2-3 times / game.

4 - 2 words, game manager. I don't care if it's A Smith, Matt Moore, McElroy, etc... Basically, anyone but Sanchez and preferably someone who has a little mobility.

Great OL + good defense + game manager = 10 wins.

That formula may not win the super bowl next year but 10 wins is certainly realistic.

If we have an above average QB and a half way decent off season and no CFL GM's its not hard to imagine a 9 to 10 win season.

Well you never know.

The CFL GM might be able to bring some OL guys from up there better than the ones we have down here.

This is the formula for two wins.

Definitely. There is definitely such a path.

Sanchez' stats were BRUTAL last year and we lost our 2 biggest impact players in Revis and Holmes. If you think about it, it's amazing we can win 6 with Sanchez playing as bad as he did. If we were healthy and had even a mediocre QB like Matt Flynn or Matt Moore, we probably would have won 9 last season anyway. Just remember how bad Sanchez was, there were at least 3 games that he lost for us single-handedly.

Neither of those guys are mediocre QBs, they're bad QBs. They're *DIFFERENT* bad QBs though, and that might be the kicker.

The focus should be on building the team not 10 wins. I would t waste money on the quarterback position, grab one in 2014 instead.

Can't it be both? I mean, you have to be talking about a pretty severely talent deficient team to say that ten wins isn't even a realistic possibility. At the same time, we're screwed for the foreseeable future because the organization is just a total debacle.

They could move to the CFL and almost be dominent if they could get a competant QB.

Too many holes. Remember when they coded al the plays by color for Sanchez so he would know which were the one he had to be most careful about. It actually worked for a year. The plan could not keep him from fumbling, ever, but it worked for the rest of that year. He just kept geting worse and worse. Your plan sounds feasible, but we can never compile all the talent that needs replacing in an offseason, unless we trade some chips for multiple picks.

PFF has the Jets as their 5th rated OL in the league. It's not just me saying the line is good. By the way preprare yourself for the Jets RFA tendering Austin Howard. on a team with only 10 starters under contract, that's a cheap way for an 11th. Whoever the next GM is gonna do it. So just be ready.

Why would it be shocking to tender Austin Howard something?

It would definitely help if wonderboy up in New England were to strain his uterus or something and miss both our games against them.

Yes there is a path. It's called the Yellow Brick Road. Can the Mayor of Munchkinland play QB??
