The Jets have made some great free agency moves. My general philosophy is that a team lives and dies on the line. O-line got improved with Alan Faneca. I expect D’Brick and Mangold to improve dramatically with Faneca in between them. They need his veteran presence. This will lead to Thomas Jones (RB) to having a break-out season running behind these guys. In fact, he gets another great blocker with Tony Richardson as Full back. Jones must feel like he is the luckiest guy in the world. I am predicting a 1500+ year season. I also expect QB Clemens to have a better year with better protection, although I have my doubts he can step up.
They also signed Linebacker Calvin Pace and O-Lineman Damien Woody. More great news. Pace should do well in the 3-4 defense the Jets are trying to install. Jonathan Vilma is gone for draft picks but he was disgruntled anyway.
Hopefully, the Jets will have a good Draft. They still need help at many positions. I am hopeful.
I predict the 2008-2009 New York Jets season will be breakthrough.
Happy Birthday Daniel! Are you 30 now?
