Just in case you are a Jet fan and do not want to be debby downer. Here is something you can show people or say to people as a backing point to why you think the Jets (not the Jets offense mind you) will not suck.
1. Ryan Fitzpatrick
2. Ben Roethlischeesburger
3. Ryan Tannehill
4. Alex Smith
5. Matt Schaub
6. Andrew Luck
7. Tom Brady
8. Ryan Tannehill
9. Matt Flynn or Russell Wilson
10. Sam Bradford
11. Tom Brady
12. Kevin Kolb or John Skelton
13. Blaine Gabbert
14. Jake Locker
15. Philip Rivers
16. Ryan Fitzpatrick
This is the list of Quarterbacks the Jets will face this season. They currently have at least 3 games against rookie QBs and 2 against Sophomores. Outside those 5, they face the NFC West which consists of Alex Smith, 1 decent year in his career, Sam Bradford who has like 6 wins in 3 years and two teams that have yet to decide who their starter is.
The Jets play exactly 5 games this entire season against teams with QBs that you would say are good to very good. Even if you have them losing every one of those games, tell me which other quarterback on this list you would take over Mark Sanchez and tell me which QB you actually expect to put up 20 points on the Jets defense.
So what am I saying? Sure the offense looks atrocious and this whole Tim Tebow over coverage is annoying, but the Jets defense should be BETTER than last year with the additions of two non slow and small and white safeties as well as the drafting of Coples. They face 11 mediocre or bad or inexperienced QBs this year. Get used to some low scoring games but the Jets are going to win games this year.
BEST OF MAXIM
2012 All-AFC East Team
In case you missed it by virtue of being in a coma, on a vision quest, or hiding out under the sea, Tim Tebow is now in the AFC East. So the daily drama of the Jets-Patriots rivalry will now have a new angle, one that is semi-competent and occasionally sexy. Be forewarned, lest you turn on ESPN only to be overcome by shirtless Tebow running in the rain...
Just when you thought that you had seen it all in terms of Tom Brady photo shoots, this one from VMan magazine came to life.

Tom Brady is among many of the New England Patriots' top players who aren't suited up for the preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

The general consensus is that preseason football games are meaningless. After all, a win or a loss in the preseason is worth zilch once the regular season rolls around.
But Friday night's game needs to be treated as a big deal for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Because the Bucs square off against the New England Patriots and they have something to prove to them and the...
8 a.m. ET: Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski were just two of the many Patriots starters to sit out of the team's second preseason game against the Eagles on Monday. But the move wasn't without good reason. Bill Belichick thought the move be best suited for his starters especially, as the Patriots were set to travel to Tampa Bay for a showdown with the Buccanneers just four days...
When Tom Brady was hurt in the 2008 opener and missed the rest of the season, Matt Cassel was ready to step in for the New England Patriots.
If Brady gets hurt again, his replacement doesn't seem as obvious, not after his two backups shared all the snaps in the Patriots latest preseason game.
Second-year pro Ryan Mallett had better numbers than Brian Hoyer, Brady's primary...
After the Patriots' second preseason game, here is a look at what the Patriots' starting lineup and depth chart on offense might look like.Quarterback: Tom BradyAnalysis: Easiest position to assess. Brady is the clear-cut starter on this team.The real question for New England is who is the backup?One would think that Brian Hoyer would get the nod as the No. 2 option on the...
There is no argument that the three safest picks at the quarterback position are Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady, and Drew Brees. Rodgers is the best fantasy quarterback on the market, while Brady and Brees aren't a bad consolation prize. However, many wait until later rounds in the draft to select a quarterback and for good reason. Rodgers, Brady, Brees, and maybe Cam...
The Patriots have known for a long time that Tom Brady was going to start the season opener at Tennessee on Sept. 9. But now the Titans have decided on a starting quarterback as well, as head coach Mike Munchak will go with second-year pro Jake Locker, according to The Tennesseean's Jim Wyatt. Locker was the eighth overall pick in the 2011 NFL draft out of the University of Washington...
Tom Brady: After throwing 39 touchdowns (17 to uber-stud Rob Gronkowski), Bill Belichick brought back offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels. McDaniels was the coordinator behind 2007’s record-setting offense.
To go along with McDaniels, Brandon Lloyd enters the fray as someone who can stretch the field and provide another option to complement Wes Welker, Aaron Hernandez, and Gronkowski...
