We've got a tough 1st matchup against the Jets. Since the rosters are about set in stone (very few impact signings left to make if any) I figured i'd take this opportunity to gauge everyone's thoughts about our opening day matchup against everyone's favorite media darling the New York Jets. Yes, they're getting tons of hype because they're the Jets and because they made the bold move of trading up for a popular QB. But I dont really care about all that. To be honest, I think they gave up way too much for Sanchez (5 picks/players) and then they traded up AGAIN for a RB. Greene is a very good RB to have but its not a good idea to mortgage your draft on essentially two players (they had 3 picks in total). Especially since underclassmen rookie QBs dont have a great track record of success and RBs are a dime a dozen. The actual reason that this is a tough game is because they've got one of the best defenses in football and a hell of a running game with Thomas Jones and the stout OL they've got in Jersey. Their secondary is as good as anyone's with Revis, Sheppard, Rhodes, and Leonhard. Its a good thing we've got plenty of weapons to throw to because that secondary is gonna force us to dig deep for favorable matchups other than the token Andre Johnson vs anyone. Their run defense is stout with Kris Jenkins anchoring the DL, I have a hard time not seeing Chris Meyers getting rag dolled against that NT. We get to meet Rex Ryan again, the defensive genius has his hands on the talent with the Jets and brought quite a few guys over to help jumpstart his system. The 3-4 defenses had their way with us last season. Hopefully Anthony Hill shows his worth right off the bat in this matchup assisting the OTs in pass protection. All in all I think its a very even matchup considering the upgrades we made on defense. The three biggest advantages we have are that its a home game, we're probably gonna get to play a rookie QB, and this is Rex Ryan's first game with the team so we catch them while they barely have their feet wet. We're gonna find out real quick how our offense stacks up against the league's best defenses, if we can score against a tough 3-4 defense like this then we're gonna find out for sure whether this offense is elite.
