And wonders how they will handle it
Rodney Harrison says Jets will start 0-2 - AFC East Blog - ESPN
I agree. The Pats will be better prepared when they face the Jets "Madden football nano blitz" style defense.
I miss Rodney.
I think they start off 2-4 and then go into their bye. I think they lose their first two games at home to the Ravens and Pats.
Then head to sunny Miami realing and pointing fingers at each other and lose again. Then they beat the hell out of the lowly Bills and suddenly they are talking Super Bowl again. Only to get spanked by Minny. Then they go out and beat the Broncos and once again they will be the team to over come their 2-4 start to win the super bowl. Tubby will right the ship over the bye....
I ain't never changing my name.
I love the fact that the Patriots are playing both the Jets and Miami on the road in the 1st month of the season. Our veteran HOF QB being in prime form coming right out of the gates is going to make all the difference in the world this season.
I really miss that blitz. Worst fix in Madden ever.
Anyway, back to your regularly scheduled program...
Thanks for nothing Rodney!
I agree (and stated as much yesterday) but no need to tell them that. As much as the Patriots must hate hearing about the Jets this off season I have to assume that the Ravens are also seething. Especially the Ravens; the will rip the Jets to shreds given half a chance (and a couple of CBs).
Agreed..... Balt. is just nasty...... NE they are built to shut down the JEST.... Extra TE exploiting the voids left at LB via the blitz... Although I think we split the season series.
Although I think Rodney may be right and Rodney can be objective at times when it comes to the Pats and Jets, I still do think he has a bit of homer in him.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
As soon as the schedule comes out, I write out here that I think the Jets will still be looking for their first win when they travel to Miami to play in what will be a hungry Dolphins' team's Home Opener and I write that I think the Jets could disintegrate after going 0--3...and does anybody say anything about it ? Noooooooooooooo.
But Rodney Harrison says it and everybody's like all falling over them selves.
OK. OK. He's probably going to the Hall of Fame and maybe he does know just the tiniest bit more about the NFL and the Patriots than I do, but what does that matter? :singing:
(For those without a sense of humor, the above was a joke.)
Me too and me either!
I think that if we lose any division game, it will be to the 'phins. I can't see any other losses within the division this year, though I have certainly been wrong before.
Quick note: I have a working relationship with the Jets and it kills me.
For work reasons, I was looking at their schedule today and I agree with Rodney: the Jets stand a good chance of starting 0-2.
We will know more after the Pat's first game (obviously). The young talent really needs to put it all together and gel into a cohesive group, especially on the lines and in the secondary. If the Pats are in it late in the season, it will be because they have young players that are as smart as they have to be and know how to come prepared each week.
Another quick note: Glad to see Brady is being a leader, both vocally and by example. Like Bird, Magic and MJ, Brady's leadership will make it so that the players around him don't want to let him down (much like I think Bruschi and Vrabel did).
I think it's funny how most people forget about how Brady has made a habit of torching the blitz throughout his career because he came back and struggled against it at times last season. The killer for this team was a defense that could get pressure based on a three or four man front while dropping everyone else into coverage. Brady struggled coming back from injury and the Jets had that going for them. The second time around, he was much more prepared for it and responded by torching them. There's no reason NOT to think that this won't be the case again in Week 2. I agree with Rodney and have been agreeing with them. It's VERY easy to point and say that the Jets will start 0-2.
Excellent points. But I don't think that the offensive line play or play-calling did Brady too many favours. If we see the improvement I hope for in those areas, I think our team can handle the Jesters.
An 0-16 start would be nice.
But in all seriousness, I'm going with 0-3 to start the year.
The Raven's have looked nasty this preason, just like they normally do. They are extremely physical, and hopefully the jets come out limping a bit after that game. I'm sure the Pats won't mind if the Jets are a bit banged up. Like everyone else here, I also think there's a good chance the Jets start out 0-2. I think Sanchez will struggle alot in both games.
