New York Jets Betting Tips – Quarterback Soap Opera Is Likely To Shoot Down The Jets
Head Coach: Rex Ryan
Offensive Coordinator: Tony Sparano
Defensive Coordinator: Mike Pettine
Owner: Woody Johnson
Stadium: Met Life Stadium
Super Bowl Wins: 1
On offense, the Jets placed 25th in the league in 2011, racking up only 4,989 yards, one of eight NFL teams to finish below 5,000 yards of total offense. Their offense was driven into a ditch by quarterback Mark Sanchez, a man whom betting sites will not trust… unless those sites improve the odds for the Jets' opponents. In the face of these issues on offense, the Jets felt they could use Tim Tebow. Make no mistake, Tebow overachieved for the Denver Broncos last season, but when Peyton Manning rode into Denver, the Jets should have stayed pat. Tebow is not a gifted pure passer. He competes extremely well and is a great runner on third- or fourth-and-short situations, but he is not a classic dropback passer. Moreover, his Denver defense bailed him out on several occasions last season. Tebow might enjoy his share of success now and then in the NFL, but he's never going to achieve anything easily; his degree of difficulty is always going to be quite high. Tebow needs so many other pieces around him in order to thrive, and it's fairly clear that the Jets are not that team. The Tebow-Sanchez battle feels more like a distraction than a healthy competition for this team and its ailing offense.
The Jets' defense was excellent last year. Coach Rex Ryan was not happy with his team's offense, but he had to love the fact that his defense finished 5th in the NFL in 2011, allowing only 4,993 yards. New York was one of only five teams to allow fewer than 5,000 total yards, balancing out the woeful offense that ultimately killed the Jets when the regular season came to a close. Sports betting oddsmakers will probably put a lot of low over-unders on the Jets this year.
The Jets produced 40.8 net yards per punt, a solid number in its own right, but a figure made even more impressive when one realizes that the Jets attempted 91 punts during the season, fifth in the league behind Cincinnati, Miami, Denver, and Arizona. The Jets' placekicking game enjoyed a spectacular year in 2011, making 29 of 30 field goals, missing only a kick of at least 50 yards. There's nothing wrong with this particular phase of the game for New York.
The Jets are a half-a-loaf team, solid on defense but inept on offense. They can win some games by merely eliminating mistakes, but they'll need a productive offense if they want to win 10 games. They won't get there. An 8-8 mark is in the cards for the Jets.
