ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 04:08 PM) One of the most positive things that this Marshall signing brings is Amaro getting more balls thrown to him
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 04:08 PM) and we'll finally have legitimate size at WR in the redzone
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 04:08 PM) but still the biggest issue is QB
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 04:09 PM) we can get monsters at WR but without a QB to throw them the ball, it's a waste of talent
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 04:30 PM) Or maybe its a waste of a QB with no WRs to throw to.
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 04:53 PM) Or anyone to block for him
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 05:17 PM) fire em all
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 05:37 PM) Get pumped that we have actual wr talent now
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 06:25 PM) being that the JETS haven't had a WR go over 1,000 yards since 2007 when J-CO did it, is pretty indicative how bad our WR corps and subsequently our QB play has been
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 06:27 PM) and that was Chad's last year as a NEW YORK JET
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 06:35 PM) and as far as Harris getting re-signed the only good thing is he is not going to end up with the bills other than that...he's not worth 15 mil guaranteed

Jets on pace to obliterate 40-year-old record

US Presswire
Jets running backs Leon Washington and Thomas Jones have combined to score 18 touchdowns this season.

Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Graham

The New York Jets are on pace to shatter their 40-year-old franchise record for most points scored in a season.

Through 11 games, the Jets have amassed 323 points for an average of 29.4 a game. They are on pace to score 470 points.

"If you're a defensive coordinator, you're scratching your head, saying 'What do I do?' " Jets quarterback Brett Favre said Wednesday.

"We're going to run it until you stop it, but we'll also mix in the quick-passing game, screens and things like that. You can't just commit to the box, you have to commit to the receivers as well."

In 1968, when the Jets won their Super Bowl, they posted 419 points in a 14-game regular season. Their average was 29.9 points a game with Joe Namath slinging the ball around Shea Stadium.

Both teams are remarkably balanced, although this year's version has generated more defensive point production and doesn't rely on its kicker as much.

All but three of the 1968 Jets' touchdowns were scored offensively. Namath accounted for 17 touchdowns, throwing 10 to Don Maynard. Matt Snell led them with six rushing touchdowns, while Emerson Boozer and Bill Mathis had five apiece.

Jim Turner set club records with 34 field goals and 145 points.

This year's edition has scored four defensive touchdowns and one on special teams.

Favre has thrown 20 touchdown passes to six receivers. Thomas Jones has rushed for nine touchdowns. Leon Washington has four rushing touchdowns, two receiving and one on a kick return.

"The key in all of this is the fact that our running game has really dominated, no different than our defense stopping the run," Favre said. "The fact we've been able to run the football at our discretion has made all the difference.

"For any quarterback, if you can run the football the way we're running it, you can dictate to defenses how they have to play you. Do they bring an extra guy in the box? If they do that, then a slant should be there, a go route or a back-shoulder throw."

Kicker Jay Feely won't challenge Turner's records, but he has 91 points.

This caption is striking to me because the difference between our running game from last year is like night and day. It's definitely the additions along the OLine which caused this, and shows Jones can have a huge impact with quality men in front of him.

As much as I am enjoying this seemingly magical season, I wonder how much players were dogging last year especially on defense. I know how much of an upgrade Kris Jenkins is. We will get the chance on Sunday to see how well Dewayne Robertson stuffs our running game (lol). We all can be thankful that instead of being embarrased on national TV by Dallas last year, we could very well end the weekend with the 2nd best record in the AFC. Also, thank the lord we are not Lions fans.
