The Jets are not getting a lot of credit from the mainstream media for doing well this offseason.  One writer doen’t approve.  Here is an excerpt from Jeff Capellini’s piece on how the Jets will be better than most people expect:

However, if you really stop and look around at what’s gone down this offseason you’ll see a humbled team that has dialed the rhetoric down several notches. Yet, the Jets remain a significant talking point, but not because of what they have done to better themselves. On the contrary, the sharks have been smelling blood for several months and they are now hell-bent on moving in for the kill, regardless of the fact that the Jets have, by and large, done exactly what they said they were going to do, as in swallow some pride, shut their mouths and work on fixing the many wrongs of what was a season that went badly awry.

The piece is an excellent read, please take a look at the whole thing by clicking here.

He’s absolutely right, there are a lot of questions.  The safety position may not be as improved as he thinks, we will just have to find out.  We just don’t know if those guys will help in pass defense yet, but we will find out.
