Jets Fans: There Is No Need To Panic...Yet!

All you bandwagon riders, don’t be so quick to jump ship, the New York Jets aren’t as bad as they appeared to be on Monday night. The Jets just happened to be playing a team that well looked like them. Keep in mind that the Ravens were once Rex Ryan’s defensive baby that grew up and matured like a fine wine. 

Watching the Jets and the Ravens play was like playing Madden and both players choosing the same team. Flacco and Sanchez are both young and inexperienced so both teams lean on the ability to run. The Ravens have Ray Rice, a young running back who has just found himself and is beginning to come into his own. They also have an experienced veteran in Willis McGahee to pick up the slack when Rice gets tired. The Jets have a young runner themselves in Shonn Greene who is starting his first NFL games. The Jets also have an insurance policy in LaDainian Tomlinson who will pick up the team when Greene is unable to deliver.

The passing game of both teams limits the explosive receivers that both of them have. Weapons like Braylon Edwards, T.J. Houshmandzadeh, Santonio Holmes, and Anquon Boldin will all have numbers that will be somewhat frustrating to elite receivers due to inexperienced quarterback play.

Even on defense these teams are so similar it’s eerie. The only difference between the two teams is the secondary. The Jets have an elite secondary headed by Darell Revis and the Ravens have an experienced secondary that is missing its leader Ed Reed. One thing is for sure, is that both of these teams will hit you. The front seven of both of these teams is as big and fast as any that the NFL has ever witnessed. Both are deep and both deliver.

A New Birth Is Being Born

"A new birth is being born" were the words LaDainian Tomlinson used to describe the resurrection of his career in New York. However to me it sounds as if LaDainian Tomlinson's already conceding his starting spot on the depth chart to Shonn Greene. Word around training camp is that Tomlinson is looking old and slow in Jet’s mini camp and that his skill set has diminished to the point that he may even see a limited role at the beginning of the season.

LaDainian Tomlinson told ESPN's Sal Paolantonio for a SportsCenter interview that he believes he's competing with Shonn Greene to start.

"I think the best man is going win the starting job," Tomlinson said. Greene is without question the superior player, so he's the favorite in everyone's eyes, including LT's. "I'm tired of being doubted by so many people about what I can do," Tomlinson added. LT did say he'll be able to "get over it" if Greene wins the starting and feature back job.
