The New York Jets outlook for 2012 is positive, but how well they play and how far they go if they make the playoffs will depend on quarterbacks Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow. Last season, the Jets finished a mediocre season at 8-8 SU and were 6-9-1 ATS.
Tebow was acquired from Denver after the Broncos signed Peyton Manning, but it is unknown where and how much Tebow will play for the Jets. Sanchez is still their quarterback and has an average receiver corps to throw to and his running backs cannot be counted on to carry the club. One positive factor on offense will be draft pick Stephen Hill, who is very athletic and can be a factor in games. He needs to gain confidence and be able to catch balls thrown to him.
Defensively the team must get a better pass rush to take pressure off the secondary. Last season no one on the entire defense had over 6 sacks. The team must make bigger plays such as key interceptions, big sacks and turnovers. At safety, they should be helped by Laron Landry who was picked up during the offseason. However, the rush defense must be better, as last season they gave up 100 yards or more in rushing in 9 of the 16 regular season games. The team was 3-6 in those nine games both SU and ATS.
The entire season the Jets had streaks, both winning and losing. They never lost or won a single game at a time.
This season the team is +650 to win the division, +1150 to take the AFC Championship and +2800 to win the Super Bowl. The team has been given an over/under wins rating of 9. With the uncertainties the team has, this season should be similar to last season. Look for the Jets to finish with 8 or 9 wins and possibly squeak into the playoffs.
