The Jets can rot and burn up in flames! They're are a joke and that Greenhorn QB is going to get a dose of reality this weekend! The Jets only have the Steelers to thank for going into Suck mode for most of the season!

no u should not root for the jets if u r a TRUE BIG BEN FAN. i certainly m nd this is y u should not root 4 the jets. its bcuz BIG BEN holds the record 4 youngest qb 2 win the super bowl nd mark sanchez tht had a 63 rating in the season nd 20 picks would take that recoed although he had NOTHING to do with it if they won. nd jupiter-sized head rex ryan doesnt make it any better. he has a universe sized ego nd evry time i c him i wanna punch the **** outta him.

I think we should learn something from their aggressive style on defense. The Steelers were passive on defense this year...Opposing QBs had plenty of time to get the ball to a receiver when our cornerbacks play 10 yards away from the line of scrimmage.

The Jets attacked aggressively last year. I like that Rex Ryan style defense and hope LeBeau attacks the QB more with corner blitzes and middle backers this coming year.

You're right, as usual, LZ, but I don't think it was a deliberate shift in philosophy. I just think teams ran on us a little better without Smith and Polamalu, and none of the CBs could cover anyone by themselves or recover if someone got a step on them, so Lebeau had to get more conservative. I bet this year he brings Blitzburgh back with a vengeance.

you know what, you lose two of your best defenders and things happen. I think harrison was being held even more than usual. hard to believe but i think it happened. w. gay was burned repeatedly with no troy to help out. carter was good against the run but was too slow in coverage. also we were the defending champs and every team played us as such and frankly we didn't match the intensity on a consistent basis. this year will be different.

Very true. The security blanket of Troy was taken away and it exposed our weaknesses in the secondary. That moved more guys outta the box like Woodley, who was covering TEs and RBs all year...essentially spreading out our defense. That's when their run game comes in. With Troy back, and hopefully a starting rookie secondary player, we'll have that warm, fuzzy blanky back.
