Offensively the Jets have very little, aside from a fantastic OL. Their OL makes all of their skills players look better than they really are. That is always the case. Smith, S. Hill, Gore, VD, etc... have looked pretty darn good when our OL performs well. But when it doesn't, they look like s**t.
Aside from that and some better CB's, what do the Jets have that we don't? I argue that our talent at RB, TE, WR, LB, and DL is better than theirs. So lets use our high draft picks on OL and CB and be the Jets of 2010.
As good a run game as they has the Jets pass offense was 2nd last in the NFL.
Jones, Greene, Washington > Gore, Coffee, Robsinson
We are more talented at TE.
It's arguable that they are better at WR.
At LB it's pretty even. If they had a legit pass rusher opposite Pace they would be better.
DL we are probably only slightly better when they have a healthy Kris Jenkins.
And FWIW I don't want to be the 2009-2010 Jets next year, I want to be the 2010-2011 SF 49ers.
