Jet Nut Posted July 27, 2015 Share Posted July 27, 2015 That talent really didnt come about until the last few years. This offseason put them over the top though. They havent had a Qb, which hurts. They are one of the few teams that suffer probably worse QB fate than the Jets (since Kelly at least). They started Fitzpatrick for like 4 or 5 years. That's all you need to know. Oh its better. Not by a ton but its better. They're a better defense. Better DL, better LB'ers...secondary is about equal. I think we've got them at the OL, that's about it. WR's are probably a wash. They've got better RB's. Both with pathetic QB's. The gap isnt huge, but its there. Meh the team over the last 4 years was not playoff caliber. But you're correct. Their HC hasnt been very successful lately. Doesnt change the fact he's familiar with the division. It's an advantage, no matter how want to spin it. It may not mean anything in the long run...but he doesnt have the learning curve that a first time HC or a HC new to division would have. And what is being familiar with the division worth? How hard is it to get familiar with teams? And what is it worth given the drastic changes teams make from year to year at times? Are the Jets anywhere near the team that they were when he Left? No. Let's see Sporano comes from Dallas to the fins, doesn't know the division or conference and wins the division. Comes to the Jets after knowing the division and sucks as a OC. Wannstedt went from the NFCE to the fins and won the division in year one Herm and Rex come to the Jets out of the division, make the playoffs in their first year. Not seeing a pattern anywhere that says it's a help Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
