    I like our chances against this guy. But seems to have something to prove. What you think? draft a linebacker, safety?

    Im sure as hell not drafting someone to deal with chris johnson. If you want to say we need to improve against running backs in general then sure but we will face bigger threats than johnson

    Our defense is slow. He is going to have his way with us. We can't even cover scrambling QB's. The Jets became relevant again this off season. They're not better than us but if they could beat us with last year's team then they could definitely beat us with this year's team.

    Mike Vick > Geno Smith
    Chris Johnson > Every Jets RB

    Well it's certainly not a good thing that the Dolphins now have to face him twice this year.

    I would only be worried if they somehow brought back a young and healthy Curtis Martin....

    Chris Ivory is better at this point of their careers than Johnson

    CJ will shut himself down because he is done compared to his past.

    This is true, but he still is better than what they had last year. He also is still a threat to break one for the endzone at any time.

    If the Jets are expecting the elite Chris Johnson they will be extremely disappointed. The team they are assembling (Michael Vick, Chris Johnson) would be great if the year was 2010.

    Saw a great comment yesteday that CJ2K is now CJ2YPC. :lol:

    LOL, are we afraid of this washed up back now? Reminds me of a Shaun Alexander or Clinton Portis in their final seasons, absolutely worthless. He hasn't run for 2000 yards in years, nothing to see here.

    The Jets have definitely upgraded their talent level. Johnson is still a threat in space. Let's not kid ourselves. And the fact that they have a superior coach than us will give them the advantage next season.

    If you don't think Rex Ryan is a vastly superior coach than Joe Philbin, then I don't know what to tell you.

    I think it was a good move for them, as now they can use him sparingly and not burn him out. He's dangerous when he's really trying, but in the past, he's paced himself waiting for an opportunity to break a big one. If he only gets a certain number of carries, he'll either be extremely dangerous to break one every time or he'll never get warmed up enough to do just that and be a big bust for them. Will be interesting to see which happens. While I think they improved slightly at RB and QB, they still have a lot of issues at their OL. They didn't do much in FA, so they have to address it in the draft. Regardless, they are going to struggle again this year with their OL unless their rookies have a breakout season. I don't think we need to do anything special just for them other than addressing our holes on the D side of the ball.

    With a defense like the Jets have, they are scary now that they have Chris Johnson. At this point of his career he still probably runs a 4.5. They can still stay committed to the run. They can hammer a team with Ivory, then throw the curveball with Johnson to wear down defenses. Scary I say, especially if the Dolphins don't score like they did last year.

    chasing shadows at skill positions is a quick path to mediocrity, we have seen a fair amount of that from the Dolphins in the past decade

    Then don't tell me. Rex is a fun guy, good guy to the players. That does not mean he is a good coach. We really do not know what kind of coach Philbin is yet.

    I don't know if I buy the whole chip on his shoulder thing, I don't think he is 100% and as explosive as he was but he is still explosive and will be a nice piece. if he has a throwback season I will be surprised. what I expect is a great compliment to Chris Ivory, a guy who will catch a ton of balls out of the backfield and make some big plays for us. we haven't had any big play guys probably since Holmes was healthy in 2011 and now we acquired 2 this offseason so I'm happy. it's a nice start, we will have more talent on O than we have had since 2010, we have a dominant DL but we still have plenty of work to do but I am happy so far.

    Res is one of the best coaches in the game, switch the coaches last year and Miami is a playoff team and we win 5-6 games. what he ahs done the last 2 years w/ the talent we have had on offense has been amazing.

    Keep the fence closed so he stays out of the yard. We need to shut any RB down.

    I'm sorry, did I make some official announcement that I would never come back? I must have missed that but thanks for thinking of me.

    I knew you guys missed me and I didn't want to rob you of that. Now pay attention and learn rather than hurl childish insults.

    Yeah, you actually did. Not on this forum, but I guess you can claim ignorance about comments that not everyone saw.

    The only thing I could ever learn from you is how to perfect willful ignorance.

    actually if you read what I wrote(since you are so concerned), I said I was thinking about it.


    I appreciate you being a fan and taking a message board so seriously.

    this is good new for Miami. he's washed up. i would know being disappointed every week with him on my fantasy squad. i watched him enough to conclude he lacks both the speed and agility he used to have.

    He went to two AFC championship games with Buttfumble as his QB. He's a good coach.

    And we don't know what type of coach Philbin is? Sure we do. He's 15-17 thru two seasons. You are what your record says you are.

    Rex Ryan is a hell of a coach. I would take him over Philbin any day of the week. He has a few elements that I think is killer when you have it in a coach: Getting players to play hard for him, knows how to have fun, never afraid of being aggressive. If he was our coach last year, we go to the playoffs, guaranteed.

    As far as Chris Johnson, I think he's a good pickup for the Jets. They were 4th in rushing last year (I believe) with Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell. You add a dynamic runner like CJ to that, and it could potentially be deadly. With that said, I'm not too afraid of CJ against our defense though. I may be off the mark here as I'm speaking off the top of my head, but runners with his running style (feast or famine) don't seem to shred the Dolphins very much.

    Their QBs? Different story. That side show should be pretty interesting to watch.

    Cj will not make the jets an elite team and mv will get hurt as he always does lately.And with that the jets hopes will vanish.

    Vick is going to be the backup.

    we have more pieces to assemble before we start talking elite but I expect to be a playoff team.

    he's going to have to badly outplay Geno to start. he knows the system but it's risky b/c of his durability. The offense will actually have good weapons to throw and handoff to for the first time since 2010 so that should help Geno improve enough to earn the job. If not he'll eventually play b/c Vick can't stay healthy.

    ---------- Post added at 01:37 PM ---------- Previous post was at 01:36 PM ----------

    he wasn't brought in to spell Ivory, he was brought here to form a tandem with him. He will be a big part of the offense but not the focal point.

    Geno struggled a good portion of 2013 but remember he wasn't ready to play and was forced and he had very little talent around him. He was much better the last qtr of the season and will have a year under his belt and much more talent around him. I'm betting on geno, he has A LOT of work to do but I expect he will win the job.
