New York Jets' September Preview

Kevin NelsonCorrespondent IAugust 10, 2008

A new football season is upon us, and they NY Jets are poised to make a comeback from their depressing 4-12 season of 2007. With the addition of rookie linebacker Vernon Gholston and the loss of, arguably, one of the main problems, Chad Pennington.

Also, might I mention the trade for future NFL Hall of Famer Brett Favre. All of the Jets' veterans now have a base player that has the big-game experience that most of the team has lacked throughout the years.

One might say that as a rookie, Gholston has no big-game experience, but playing at Ohio State in the Big 10 with some of the best defenses in the country gives him the big-game experience in my book.

Now, for the Jets' 2008 season predictions.

Week One: @ Miami

Interesting matchup as Favre debuts against former Jet QB Pennington. Coming off a 1-15 season last year, the Dolphins are looking for retribution. Unfortunately for them, the Jets are too much to handle. The Jets take it in convincing fashion.

Week Two: vs. New England

Favre's debut in the Meadowlands is a sorry one, as the Jets fall to the defending AFC Champions.

Week Three: @ San Diego

The Jets' defense gets their first, true, rushing test from the always dominant LaDainian Tomlinson. But the Chargers' lack of a passing game and defense gives the Jets a close victory.

Week Four: vs. Arizona

QB Matt Leinart is looking for retribution and hopes to have a big season. Unfortunately for the Jets, this is the year Leinart silences the critics and has a big year. Jets fall.
