After a few practices under new head coach Rex Ryan it appears the New York Jets have at least learned how to talk a good game. The NFL will have to wait until September to see if they can play a good game.

According to the New York Daily News, Jets' safety Kerry Rhodes(notes) expressed the confidence the other day on his Twitter account, writing, "We will be the best defense in the league this year. I feel for the offenses we're gonna face."

He isn't alone. I asked LB Calvin Pace(notes) about Rhodes' statement, and Pace said of the Jets' defense, "I don't think you'll find a better team on paper." He was quick to add that paper doesn't mean anything if the players underachieve, but there's no mistaking the confidence in the locker room.

And Rex Ryan loves it.

"I'm excited about that comment," said Ryan, agreeing with Rhodes' assessment. "You know what? I love the fact that he put 'we will,' not, 'I'll be the best safety.'"



is it bad i'm excited for Jets football in June?

29th out of 32 teams against the pass last year.   234 pass yards per game and 23 pass TD's given up. 
 
 
What changes have they made to correct that?    Any new players back in the secondary?    Any better pass rushers?

Can the O keep the D off the field? That's the big question!

i think the Offense will put the Jets D in some bad spots this year ...
 
Turnovers and costly 3 and outs ... 
 
8-8--7-9   Sounds about right
