2007 New York Jets: Season in Review

Rain ManCorrespondent IFebruary 9, 2008

What a disappointing season.

I thought we were going to be good, but we weren't.

Both of the lines have been atrocious; we couldn't get a sack if our lives depended on it.

We had 29 as a team, and the O-line couldn't protect poor Chad Pennington, or Kellen Clemens from getting pounded every game, allowing 53 sacks.


Thomas Jones had a few good games, but only had one rushing TD, and that was against the lowly Dolphins.

He did get 1,119 yards though.

Leon Washington, I guarantee will be a star.

He's always a threat to take it the distance on kick returns, and his three return TDs show it. I still don't understand why he was underused.

Jerricho Cotchery and Laveranues Coles have been great this season, even if the QBs were getting pounded.

Cotchery caught 82 passes for 1,130 yards and two touchdowns!

Coles had 55 grabs for 546 yards and six TDs. Also, Brad Smith was an extremely useful weapon, a couple nice reverses, and not to mention some great catches.

Justin McCareins is an idiot!

He dropped quite a few crucial catches, including one of them that cost us the Ravens game! RELEASE THIS BUM!

Chris Baker showed why he's an underrated TE. This guy needs some credit, he's made a lot of clutch catches for us throughout his whole career.

Now to the defense.

David Harris is another young stud.

If it wasn't for the Jets' bad record, he or Darelle Revis would have been the DROY. Instead it went to Patrick Willis of the 49ers.

When Justin Miller went down, Hank Poteat and Abram Elam were starting.

Those two have no business starting in the league.

Especially you Abram Elam! You cost us the 2nd Bills game! You hit Revis, and the Bills WR (I think it was Lee Evans) caught the ball, and put the game out of reach at 13-3.

Kerry Rhodes, again, has been amazing! Yet, the stupid Pro Bowl left him out.

The highlight of the season was obviously the win against the Steelers. Many were picking the Steelers to rout the Jets, but we sent them packing in OT.

2007 Jets season grade: D+.

Let's hope 2008 is better.

Go Jets!

P.S. The Jets' Flight Girls are hot.
