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.
