Talking to the media on Tuesday, New York Jets owner Woody Johnson claims this year’s team has a “buzz” around them (Credit: AP Photo) This year’s off-season for the New York Jets has been rather interesting to say the least. First, for some reason, the team signed veteran quarterback David Garrard. To make matters worse, after refusing to pay their best player Darrelle Revis, the team decided to trade him to the Buccaneers for this year’s first and next year’s fourth. From there, the Jets went on to add one more quarterback before cutting Tim Tebow following the draft. In what looks to be a circus in New York, owner Woody Johnson told Jets fans on Tuesday to ”be patient and have trust we’re doing the best thing for your team.” Johnson continued, saying “”The draft is going to work.” Johnson went on to add that there is a “buzz” surrounding the Jets. When a media member added “look out Patriots?”, Johnson answered back “absolutely, you’re right”. I am not sure if Johnson believes the team will be good next year or if he is just trying to soothe the fans. However, with about four and a half months until the season begins, the Jets look to be a mess. It appears that the team does not have a quality starting quarterback. They lost their best player and seem to have no one on offense that can help the team score. At this point, the Jets have to be the safe bet to be one of the worst teams in the NFL.

  • Yet another writer jumping on the bandwagon of attacks. Surprise!!!! Jets are by far not one of the worst teams in the league. They have a young and talented defense--let by an impressive D-line, with Wilk quickly becoming a star! They had a great draft. Their running game is vastly improved and will be one of the best in the AFC, barring injuries. Their receiving corp should actually be far more productive this year, and Cumberland will have a far better year than Keller. Their Free agent pick-ups were solid, with a TE and a safely likely making the team. A top-10 Defense will be faster, more talented, and tougher than last year, the running game will likely be one of the league's best, and while the QB position is a real problem, the writer damns them for trying to address it with the signing of a Vet and picking up arguably the potential steal of the NFL draft. Come on!!!

    This writer is repeating the same old hate and lazy analysis--can he come up with something new?

    The Jaguars, Bills, Chiefs, San Diego, Dolphins, Rams, Steelers, Cardinals, and Raiders have at least as many question marks. Yet they do not receive nearly as much hate as the Jets. Stop with the Yellow Journalism--try facts!!!
  • @plato1, I could not agree with you more. Just what is the "circus" this year?? Is it because we do not have a starting quarterback yet? Is that all these haters have? We had a solid draft, added to an already good defense, potentially making it great. the Jets added a solid running back in Ivory, and with the west coast offense in play, I see the receiving team being more involved and more productive. The "circus" has left town and anybody still talking about it is the real clowns.
