Default Jets Win!! (yeah right)

Hi guys, huge Jet fan here. I've been referred by MojoMan on this board. Football season is finally here and I'm excited. Big game between the Jets and Texans as it will determine where both teams stand.

Two players that the Texans have that scare the hell out of me are none other than Andre Johnson and Steve Slaton. AJ is just a beast but if Revis can hold him to 60-80 yards that will be an accomplishment which I believe he can. The Jets run D has been fantastic and it looks like they'll be able to contain Slaton unless he breaks one to the house.

Texans D hasn't really impressed me in the preseason, then again it's the preseason. But I'm looking for the Texans to compete this year (10-6, 11-5 would not surprise me).

Texans have some young talent and it looks like they're on their way up in this league, just not against the Jets this Sunday . Flame on!

How adorable, your first post.

I've got a couple problems here:

If you're a Jets fan what interest do you have posting on a Texans board other than to troll with thread titles like "Jets Win!!"

How will week 1 determine where these teams stand? Super Bowl winners lose in week 1 all the time.

And flame on? No. Just, no.

Most NFL fans are aware of what a beast AJ is, but few people realize how deep the Texans are at receiver. Kevin Walter is the perfect complimentary receiver to AJ. He's a willing blocker in the run game, a very good route runner, and he's faster than most people think. People often forget that Walter caught 8 TD passes last year (the same number as AJ). Behind him we have the other Andre (Andre Davis) who is a burner that stretches the field, and is also a dangerous return man. Then there is David Anderson who is the ideal slot receiver. Some compare him to Wes Welker, but I wouldn't go that far. He, too, is a willing blocker, and he has a knack for getting open. Then we get to Jacoby Jones who can be electrifying as a return man for both good and bad reasons. He has the ability to take it to the house, and he's also fumbled more than a few punts. He's got the size and speed you want in a receiver but last year he didn't show much in that area. He has seemed to mature more since last season, but whether or not that translates to the field is yet to be determined. However, he did have a fantastic showing against the Bucs in the final preseason game. Hopefully that is a sign of things to come.

You are correct in saying our D has been less than impressive. I think our offense can move the ball against anyone. However, I haven't a clue what we're going to see from our D. If I were to guess after our defensive performance during the preseason, I'd say Jones and Washington will both have a very good day at the office. We're likely starting 2 players who saw zero time during the preseason, so who knows?

That's why they play the games.

Ooof, a little harsh don't you think? I know, I know Sanchez is a rookie, and his receivers are pretty much pee wee level receivers. Will he go out there and light it up throwing 4 TD's? No absolutely not, but I do think he'll make good decisions throw a pick and maybe a TD that's good enough for me.

Like I said the Texans still scare me, they've upgraded tremendously and it will be a great game.

Ah, don't mind him. He has come down from New York only recently and the good ole Texan hospitality hasn't had time to rub off the sharp edges yet.

Anyway, yer right. Jets win! Because they are playing the Texans.

Don't get me wrong they have a few playmakers on D, Mario Williams will kill someone, Cushing looks promising and if Dunta Robinson had made training camp they would be better. I haven't really seen anything out Okoye though.

Predicting the Texans is like predicting the weather. It's only done because people feel the need and it's wrong a lot.

I say the Texans will win their home opener only because I don't want to be on this board next week if they don't. There's no telling what kind of "Fire <insert name here>" threads will pop up if they lose. LOL

Well, that might be because he hasn't done anything. Believe me when I say, he's been one of the most talked about players on the board for the past month.....not in a good way. He's probably the primary reason we have seen a subpar performance against the run this preseason.

Welcome aboard.

There's a bunch of talk about why Amobi has declined. He started off strong in his rookie season but last year, he was just invisible. He gets pushed off the line of scrimmage a lot. People have said he was injured. But he's looking the same way now.

Default Re: Jets Win!!

Welcome aboard dimitiri. Someone must have put a bur in the saddle of mk5watts. I think you will find that most of the fans here are rabid NFL types, and especially rabid for the Texans. Most are very well versed and while you might get a bit of trash talking, this isn't your normal jr high schoolyard talk. Baisically, you will get as good as you give.

I did want to tell you though that your prediction is wrong. At least according to one "expert" you're little team is starting 0-5. So put that in your pipe and smoke it!

Jet's to start 0-5

2. The New York Jets will start the season 0-5.

What's that? Someone in the media speaking somewhat negatively about Rex Ryan's boys? No flipping way, that's impossible!

Listen, I understand that coach Ryan's personality and media accessibility is a welcome change from the silent treatment Eric Mangini gave New York-area scribes for the past three years, but that doesn't mean everyone needs to trick themselves into thinking this team can survive a brutal September schedule with a rookie quarterback manning the ship.

They won't.

A Week 1 nationally-televised trip to Houston will be anything but a walk in the park, back-to-back home games versus the Patriots and Titans are almost automatic losses and road games in New Orleans and Miami in Weeks 4 and 5 will more than likely feature the Jets as underdogs as well.

Jets fans, I'm not trying to be a Debbie Downer, here. Really, I'm not. I'm just being a realist.

Your local media's let you down, awed and dazzled by a head coach that looks them in the eye during press conferences and gives them the occasional juicy quote. That might make for good copy. But it doesn't guarantee a good start to what will be nothing short of a gauntlet to start the season.

0-5? For a team that everyone's seemingly really high on in 2009?

Yes, I think so.
