New York Jets Betting – Jets Offense Will Be A Challenge This Year
The New York Jets have been a great betting online story for two years. They had the cocky coach, the Hollywood-style quarterback and the veteran running back showing one last burst. But online casino play experts in New York are starting to realize that Rex Ryan is not Weeb Ewbank and Mark Sanchez is nowhere near the caliber of Joe Namath. This New York Jets team likes to think it is a Super Bowl contender, but if you like betting horses, then you may want to avoid putting your money on this team to win.

The lockout is absolutely killing the New York Jets right now. Both star wide receivers Braylon Edwards and Santonio Holmes are free agents, and the Jets cannot talk to them until the lockout is solved. Rumors on the two wide receivers volley back and forth between which one the Jets would prefer to keep. There is a very strong chance that the Jets will only get to keep one, and considering that they both offer strong upsides and potential challenges, it is difficult to say what choice is best.
It is almost as if head coach Rex Ryan and offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer just cannot see that Mark Sanchez is not an NFL starter. For two seasons now, Ryan has kept a tight grip on what Sanchez is allowed to do in a game. The long passes were limited, and Ryan used his powerful running game a great deal. Towards the end of the 2010 season, Ryan unleashed Sanchez and the Jets almost missed the playoffs. Ryan unleashed Sanchez once again in the AFC Championship game and the Jets wound up losing. As long as Rex Ryan perpetuates this illusion that Mark Sanchez is a quality NFL starter, the Jets will have problems being a Super Bowl contender.
There ain’t a thing wrong with the New York Jets defense. The only decision that the Jets have to make is whether or not to keep cornerback Antonio Cromartie, or try to find a more suitable sidekick for Darrelle Revis. When Revis was hurt last season, teams would rather throw at Cromartie than try to test any of the Revis replacements the Jets put into the game. That should tell the Jets something about Cromartie and the fear he does not strike into the opposing offense.
On the line, the Jets are solid with the exception of the contract for defensive lineman Shaun Ellis. He will probably be one of the first signing priorities for the Jets once the lockout is lifted. But the Jets are solid from front to back on defense, and it was the Jets’ defense that would come to the rescue of Mark Sanchez when Sanchez was throwing games away late in the 2010 season.
The Jets actually have a pretty decent kicking duo in punter Steve Weatherford and place kicker Nick Folk. Folk was perfect on extra points in 2010, but he did miss nine out of 39 field goal attempts. Folk is the kicker that booted his way out of Dallas in 2009 by missing 10 out of 28 field goal attempts. The Jets are bringing in veteran Nick Novak to challenge Folk for the kicking job if there is a 2011 training camp, but Novak hasn’t played since 2008 and poses no real threat to Folk.
Weatherford put 50 percent of his punts inside the 20-yard line and we never blocked last year in 84 attempts. He is a reliable punter that gets the job done. That is about all you can ask of a punter.
The Jets just cannot get over the AFC championship game hump so long as Mark Sanchez is the quarterback. Sanchez makes bad decisions when he is given the freedom to choose his own targets, and his accuracy is questionable.
On defense, the Jets are world class and can compete with anyone. But it is the offense that gets a team to the championship game, and the Jets offense is just not a good compliment to their defense.
