The Jets are faster, especially on defense. Quinton Coples and Demario Davis, among others, are evidence of that.
Karl Dunbar is here, ready to teach the linemen the techniques they need to get to the quarterback.
Sparano is in, as is a new attitude on the offensive side of the football. The offense is recommitted to the running attack, and we know the success that brought the Jets in 2009 and 2010.
We have a new and improved Rex Ryan. No, not just because he has slimmed down over 100 pounds, although it doesn’t hurt. Coach has committed himself to knowing more about what is going on with his team, to avoid the problems of last season, which can only be a good thing.
Don’t forget the return to Cortland as well as a positive, as the 2 seasons spent there ended with trips to the AFC Championship game.
And I haven’t even mentioned the versatile backup QB yet.
