The New York Jets are going to have an extremely tough upcoming season. From a quarterback battle, no receivers you can count on, a poor defense, and a tough schedule The Jets are in store for a long rough season. Now I know they only played one pre-season game so far against the Cincinnati Bengals, but they didn’t really impress me at all in that game. Let’s start off with the quarterbacks. Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow. Two quarterbacks who are good, but not great and both aren’t QB‘s that you can’t truly count on in the clutch moments. Both struggle to complete passes and Sanchez struggles with pressure and throws interceptions. Last season, Tebow had a completion percentage of 46.5 and Sanchez with a 56.7. Which will make New York fans very judgmental and critical of every play. Now let’s move to the New York Jets receivers. This team doesn’t have any receivers that they can always count on, on 3rd downs or in the last minutes of the game. When I look at their roster, the only ones that stand out to me that are pretty good, are Santonio Holmes, and tight end, Dustin Keller….the rest are pretty young but average. If you look at the Cardinals, they have Larry Fitzgerald, if you look at the Lions, they have Calvin Johnson, when you look at the Texans, they have Andre Johnson, and the list goes on. This is a passing league, and you need great wide receivers to defeat great teams. Next up, the Jets poor defense. Last season, the Jets defense was very inconsistent, let up a lot of points on the board, and blew many games in the 4th quarter, including Tebow’s game-winning touchdown run. New York is ranked 5th overall in opposing passing yards and 13th overall in opposing rushing yards. Now you may look at those stats and say, that’s not too bad, but when you look at all they’re wins and losses last season, they let up a lot of touchdowns and pretty much all of them were very high scoring games. The New York Jets just don’t have a consistent, lock-down defense at the moment. Last up, the Jets have an extremely tough schedule, going up against very good defenses. They will be going up against teams that include, the Pittsburgh Steelers, the San Francisco 49ers, the Houston Texans, the New England Patriots, and many more. If you look at most of those teams, they have very good teams with some great, tough defenses, and when going up against and facing these kind of teams, they will be racking up several losses. These are just a few of several problems the New York Jets have right now. They are in for a very long, hard, and rough season.   Related articles
