New York Jets: 2010 – 2011 Regular Season Schedule
If the New York Jets are going to build on last years success, they will need player like Antonio Cromartie and Mark Sanchez to play well. For all the success this team had in the post season they failed to win their division.
While the Jets would love to win the AFC East, they are built to win in the playoffs and all they need is an opportunity to play in the post season.
Below we have the Jets 2010 -2011 regular season schedule for you to view as we inch closer to the beginning of the NFL season. We also have the fantasy relevant players for New York, and a breakdown for all NFL teams in schedule strength in win/loss, against the pass, run and points.
Strength of Schedules
LT and Mark Sanchez’s Performance
If LaDainian Tomlinson fails to perform at a higher level than he did for the Chargers last season many will question why the team parted ways with Thomas Jones. This roster switch will be compounded with further criticism if second year quarterback Mark Sanchez fails to build on his numbers from his rookie season.
Sure, Sanchez had a strong playoff run as he managed games and made timely throws to help his team get to the AFC Championship game. While that performance is a positive, New York fans won’t tolerate his interception to touchdown ratio he had in the regular season once again this year.
The Jets finished nine and seven on the season and could have easily had two more wins if not for some horrible games by the rookie.
If these two players should struggle don’t be surprised if coaching staff leans on young stud running back Shonn Greene to carry the offense.
Fortunately for Sanchez the addition of Santonio Holmes gives him one of the best receiving cores in football. Now, this passing attack has to develop chemistry.
Cromartie an upgrade, really?
Rex Ryan grew tired of Lito Sheppard as a starting corner opposite star Darrelle Revis and benched him in the playoffs. This led to the Jets’ trading for ultra talent yet troubled Antonio Cromartie from the Chargers.
Three seasons ago Cromartie had a great year as he led the league in interceptions and seemed to have a bright future. Since that time Cromarite has struggled in a starting role and now the Jets are hopeful he can turn things around in a new environment.
If Cromartie is up to the task the Jets’ defense should be the top fantasy defense to have in 2010. On the other hand, if he struggles, teams will pick on him all yearlong and the Jets’ defense will struggle against strong offenses.
