Posted by Randy Lange on June 12, 2013 – 7:21 am

As promised, two weeks after we broke out a blog on the first quarter of the Jets’ 2013 regular-season schedule, it’s time to post up some tweet-sized bullet points for each game on the slate in the second quarter of the season, Games 5-8.

    The JETS season starts off with the Bucs and Revis, NE and Tebow, Bills (improved), Titans (improved), Falcons, Steeler’s, NE, and Cinci, Bills, Ravens. That is one heck of a tough schedule. How do I think we will do, defensively great, offensively I have a question mark, it depends on the how good the running game is and if we have receivers who can make plays and QB that can get the ball to the TE’s and receiversa.. I feel we have improved in some offensive positions. However I am going to be optimistic and say we can win. YES, we can… “LETS GO JETS”…

    JET FAN FRANK, in order for this team to have any degree of success a lot of really unexpected good things will have to happan.The key here is not the defense because no matter how good (One of those good things that needs to happan)the D plays, they will be beaten down if the O is unable to sustain drives to get them off the field.If we continue our recent trend of 3 & outs it will spell doom!Also, playmakers will need to emerge quickly.We need sacks, f/fumbles and interceptions to help what will likely be an anemic offense.Now, another one of those unexpected good things could be the re-emergence of M.S (nah!) or more likely the rapid emergence of Geno Smith as a franchise Q.B? if all of those things happan,we have a shot to play .500.

    This year is the year of the consistent running game and the quick strike pass…physical in your face running game , we do not have the skills for finesse and competency for passing game…

    This offense is completely inept , incompetent , and embarrassing …I am expecting another really bad year …. Sanchez will be running for his life after trying to hand the ball off the wrong direction ….

    If Kellen Winslow is heathly I think we should sign him. Between Holmes, Winslow, Kerley, Hill, Obumano & maybe Mike Sims Walker (I heard they were bringing him in for a tryout). I think we will be okay.

  6. By Tom "Section 124 Row 20" Spicer on Jun 12, 2013 | Reply

    Before the usual suspects rip us bringing in Kellen Winslow let me put the garbage to bed. The guy had 75 catches for Tampa in 2011. After that season he was traded to the Seahawks at the end of camp they asked him to take a pay cut he refused so the cut him. He than signed with the Pats but was the 3rd string behind Gronk & Hernandez (who wouldnt be) he was not playing so heasked for his release & it was granted. So basically he did nto play last year. Again if he is healthy the Jets need to sign this guy. He has 5 seasons with more than 66 greabs, is still only 29 years old & next to Holmes he would be our only PROVEN guy!

    From Menish Mehta Jets beat writer “The Jets will reportedly try to sign free agent TE Kellen Winslow following this week’s minicamp. He’s impressed during his tryout and is obviously a massive talent upgrade on current starting tight end Jeff Cumberland”

    The toughest part of the season is games 1 through 16. I can see 2 to 4 wins most!

    If the jets really want Geno to start it sounds like Sanchez is leading,seeing the jets are saying it is to close to call,Sanchez is not going anywhere but behind Mangold’s tush.

    Ronbo, Again today you can see Winslow is a no brainier but Simms-Walker I don’t see him hanging around very long.
    Russ, They ran a lot of WC today to my surprise. I agree very tough D and a strong running game and screen game they could be better than people think.
    It’s critical to get off to a 2-2 start with these 4 games waiting for them.

    These comments about if Sanchez wins the job they might put in some packages for Geno tells you all you need to know. This is going to be once again a very interesting summer camp.

    S.C.Joe, a disturbing bit of news on the net today. multiple reports (sny) (espn) ect, are stateing that at this point Geno Smith is not only behind in the Q.B comp. but is apparently feuding with Mark Sanchez. Now, i have no problem with Geno being a competitor and trying to establish himself as the alph-dog in this comp. My concern is can he contain his ego enough to comport himself in a professional manner and not embarrass himself and the organization? Answereing “no Comment” when asked if would attend M.S’s Jets West camp implies there may be friction between the two? Hey, nobody expects them to be best buddies but in order for him to learn anything a degree of civilaty would seem to be the prudent tact in this situation.

    Pressure getting to Geno already,no wonder he lasted to the second round,30 gms cannot all be stupid,HE HAS A LOOOOONNNNNGGGGG WAY TO GO.

    After a visit to Mini Camp yesterday, I think the Jets will have a long season, more do to the strength of their opponents than their ineptitude. The defense looked great yesterday. The running backs looked good. The offensive line looked improved. TE’s Smith and Reuland looked good, better than K. Winslow. Winslow looked slow and couldn’t seem to get open against our defense in drills, so I disagree with Menish Mehta from what I saw. The QB play was crappy from Sanchez and Smith. McElroy got a few reps and looked pretty good. Simms got a rep and fumbled a snap from center (not good). I think if they run the ball and play solid defense, they will be competitive. They just lack big play scoring ability. WR’s Simms Walker, Kerley a

    and Hazelton looked the best to me. Rodgers also looked pretty good. Didn’t see much of Obomanu or Spadola or White, etc. to make a judgement. We shall see what happens. It is still early and everyone learning the offense.

    So it begins, like I’ve said again and again, these young Kids coming out of college all hyped up force feeding them false confidence from agents looking to make a big payday, this kid best shut his trap and learn, here we go again

    Well Ron, I know it is still early and things can change, and the level of competition at the QB position is far from elite, but “so far” Smith is exactly what I said he was coming out, and boy did I get blasted for that! The immaturity is there for all to see. Again, let me specify, it is still early in the process, but boy does there have to be a huge turnaround by Geno Smith to even consider him as “competition” for MS. So, it appears once again it is Mark Sanchez’s job to fumble away. Is it great to be a Jet fan or what?

    I wouldn’t mind seeing IDZIK asking Willis McGahee to come to camp, good RB and leading rusher for Denver last 2 years and still young…

    S.C.Joe, Like you I cant say I’m surprised by Geno’s struggles. We both tried to tell T64 Geno would take time but its still disappointing to know mark will likely be the starter.Jet Fan Frank, come on dude, Willis MsGhee? The guy is older than dirt.We gotta stop even thinking of signing old re-treads, especially as we are in a rebuilding mode at this time. I know you wanna win a few games this year but it will soon become apparent that this will not be a winning season.This offence is potentially worse than last years.

    Jets just can’t get QB spot right, Getting so sick and tired of the incompetence of this team. and I’ll tell you why, even us Jets fans understand, Now our brain trust which are being paid millions just don’t get it seems like they never will, just like Patsies found Tom Brady SF found K- Kapernack or how ever you spell it, We never try to Develop our late round or kids we bring in to compete, Period. I know over the years we had to have at least one diamond in the rough and let his slip through our fingers, good job Jets always staying consistent and never changing

    Just shows how bad the jets are,they are bringing in more guys from the scrap heap then your local recyclable plant.

    the thing about this season that bugs me is, we already endured a miserable season last year,and this year will probably (most likely) be worse. But the worst thing about it is, after we get shalacked and polished this year, Rex will be gone,and the new coach will bring in all new coaches, including Morningweg’s replacement,which means 4th different offense in 4years. Not to mention the obvious drop off on defense w/o Rex. Sure that means more early draft picks, but you’ll have ALL young guys, all trying to learn new offense AND a new defense. In a nutshell, we’re lookin at 2015 before we can even BEGIN to dream again!!
