Teams Drop Down

Writers Drop Down

Sunday, July 7, 2013

Rex Ryan has all the answers when it comes to the Jets. What are the most important questions? Biggest questions for each team heading into camp.

The focus on the Jets is always on two things, Rex Ryan and Mark Sanchez.  While Ryan invites the attention, I think Sanchez gets way too much blame when it comes to the Jets success.  Rex likes to say that this team is built on running the ball and a solid defense.  The problem is, they can't run the ball and the defense isn't that great.  The Jets have to get better play out of the offensive line and some production out of the WR position, if they want to run the ball.  Teams stack the line against them because their receivers can't catch.

I'm not a Sanchez supporter but you can't put all this on him.

Here is my list of each team's biggest question(s) heading into camp.

AFC East

Patriots - How will Brady respond with all new skill position players
Dolphins - What impact does Wallace have on Tannehill's development
Bills - Do the Bills finally have a QB in EJ Manual
Jets - The question of Sanchez vs Geno does not matter, they need an offensive line and WRs that can catch.

AFC North

Ravens - How will defense respond without Lewis and Reed
Browns - Can they generate any offense?  When is the Weeden experiment over and when does TR become DMC?
Bengals - Do the Bengals have enough weapons to jump over Balt and Pitt in the division
Steelers - How will the offense respond with some familiar faces gone, who steps up.

AFC South

Colts - Does Luck suffer a sophomore slump?  I expect them to get better but have fewer wins.
Titans - Is this Lockers last season?  Does CJ rebound or is his career over?
Jax - What are they doing in Jacksonville? 
Texans - Is this the year the window closes in Houston?  Foster and Johnson aren't getting younger.

AFC West

Chiefs - Can Reid and Smith lead KC to the division title.
Broncos - How does Wes Welker integrate into a Peyton Manning offense.
Raiders - Flynn, Pryor or Wilson....does it even matter.
Chargers - Is the Rivers era coming to a close?  Will he be remembered for lost potential?

NFC East

Redskins - Does RG3 recover fully and play a full season..... and can he remain healthy.
Eagles - What does Chip Kelly do in the NFL and who is his QB.
Dallas - Will Romo's new contract and role in planning the offense make a difference.
Giants - Will the Defense return to championship form.

NFC North

Lions - Forget the defense, what about three new starters on the offensive line.  
Bears - Will the new coach bring an offensive explosion for Cutler.
Packers - Do they have enough defense and running game to make it to New York.
Vikings - How does AP defy the odds coming off of a 2,000yd season.

NFC South

Saints - Will Sean Payton's return put the Saints back in a SB run.
Bucs - Has Revis fully recovered from his knee injury.
Panthers - Will the new offense help or hurt Newton.
Falcons - Do the Falcons take the next step and play for the SB this year.

NFC West

49ers - Even with the loss of Crabtree, is this a better offense than last year.
Seahawks - Can Harvin help Wilson avoid a sophomore slump.
Rams - Is this Bradford's last year to prove he's a NFL QB.
Cards - Palmer gives them something at QB, they had nothing last year.

I know I listed more than one for some teams and made some statements instead of questions.....but did I miss any major ones?

  1. Hey about the Jets....did you notice that the Jets signed Willy Colon from Pittsburgh and Peterman from the Lions? also they drafted 3 O-Lineman in this draft, in the 4th, 5th and 6th round??? that means youre not paying attention!!

    1. actually it was the 3rd, 5th and 6th round

  2. Signing free agents and drafting late round players doesn't solve the problem. If they produce on the field then great. Like I said its a big question. As a lions fan I'm very familiar with peterman. Good luck with him.
