The season is just a few days away for the New York Jets. Mark Sanchez and company open the season on Sunday against the Buffalo Bills. It’s time for myself, and the staff of “The J-E-T Press” to make our predictions for the Jets record for 2012. So, here are our predictions for the Jets 2012 season record, from each member of our staff:
The Jets will go 10-6 this season. The defense is going to be absolutely elite. The pass rush is far better than it has been at any point in the Rex Ryan era. The linebackers are faster, and led by a rejuvenated Bart Scott, ready to make a stand in 2012. LaRon Landry and Yeremiah Bell are ready to lead a new look secondary to a bigger level than ever before.
The key is going to be what happens with this offense. I know this is obvious, but I say it anyway. We just don’t know what this offense is going to look like yet, since we haven’t seen the whole package. We don’t know what the Tebow script is going to look like. Nor do we know how effective it is, since we haven’t seen any of the plays rolled out yet. How they handle the QB situation will be key to the Jets success. If they handle it well, they can return to the playoffs. If not, well, you know what I think if not.
Bottom line, the Jets will do it well enough to return to double digit wins, at 10-6.
