I am tired of the New York Media and their fans disrespecting the Miami Dolphins! Ok they landed Aaron Rodgers, and, in their minds, they think that makes them better than a Dolphins team that has more talent and better coaching across the board! Miam’s got as much talent as anyone in the NFL!
Obviously, injuries really decimated the Dolphins defense last year and Josh Boyer did them no favors with his play calling and his inability to make adjustments in games. (See Chicago Game Last Season).
The Jets are an extremely young team that has talent and should be better than last year when they were in last place in the division with a 7-10! Yes, even the clueless Patriots took 3rd place over the Jets!
So, for everybody to be jumping on the Jets bandwagon because they got a QB who wore out his welcome in Green Bay a team that ended up 3rd in their division at 8-9!
Roders stats last year where he played a full 17 game season was
- YDS 3,695 11th
- TD 26 7th
- INT 12Tied-26th
- QBR 39.3 26th
Tua who played just 13 games stats last year
- YDS 3,548 12th
- TD 25Tied-8th
- INT 8Tied-12th
- QBR 68.8 3rd
Tua is only 25 years old vs Rodgers who is 39 years old. Rodgers just might not find the success he did in the NFC North where the teams in that division are not as good as the teams in the AFC East.
So, you delusional Jets fans and media personalities might just get a reality check this upcoming season in the AFC East!
Let’s compare Starting Lineups: (PPF Grades for 2022)
|QB Aaron Rodgers (77.5)||QB Tua Tagovailoa (81.9)|
|RB Breece Hall (69.8)||RB Raheem Mostert (75.7)|
|RB Zonovan Knight (71.8)||RB Jeff Wilson Jr. (65.7)|
|WR Garrett Wilson (82.7)||WR Tyreek Hill (92.1)|
|WR Allen Lazard (69.0)||WR Jaylen Waddle (82.6)|
|WR Mecole Hardman (68.2)||WR Chosen Anderson (51.2)|
|TE Tyler Conklin (58.6)||TE Durham Smythe (62.7)|
|LT Duane Brown (57.8)||LT Terron Armstead (77.6)|
|LG Laken Tomlinson (56.8)||LG Liam Eichenberg (39.8)|
|C Joe Tippmann (78.7*)||C Connor Williams (78.5)|
|RG Alijah Vera-Tucker (71.8)||RG Robert Hunt (72.3)|
|RT Mekhi Becton (did not play 2022)||RT Austin Jackson (57.9)|
|DI Quinnen Williams (90.1)||DI Christian Wilkins (82.2)|
|DI Al Woods (69.9)||DI Zach Sieler (73.4)|
|Edge John Franklin-Myers (82.6)||Edge Jaelan Phillips (88.8)|
|Edge Carl Lawson (66.8)||Edge Bradley Chubb (65.5)|
|Edge Micheal Clemons (78.7)||Edge Andrew Van Ginkel (72.8)|
|LB C.J. Mosley (69.8)||LB Jerome Baker (74.6)|
|LB Quincy Williams (55.2)||LB David Long (76.2)|
|CB Sauce Gardner (87.9)||CB Jalen Ramsey (86.4)|
|CB D.J. Reed Jr. (72.5)||CB Xavien Howard (59.2)|
|CB Michael Carter II (74.3)||CB Kader Kohou (68.5)|
|S Jordan Whitehead (66.1)||S Jevon Holland (67.2)|
|S Chuck Clark (66.1)||S DeShon Elliott (66.5)|
The Dolphins and Jets had six players on defense that nutralized each other making it a tie, even though I would bet that Bradly Chubb and Xavien Howard will prove to be better than their Jets counterparts this season.
So, with PFF own scoring system Miami has the edge 13-9. How is it PPF have the Jets ranked 6th in their preseeason power rankings and Miami 11th? (Frauds/Media Bias)
The Jets are an improved team from last year but so are the Dolphins and the Biggest addition that will make the Difference is DC Vick Fagio who is a veteran Coordinator and Former HC, and his experience and reputation far exceeds Josh Boyer who was in over his head.
Miami on paper and with PFF grading system are the better team! The Dolphins are the more veteran team (Dogs) while the Jets have some young players (puppies) that are good, they need more seasoning and if this Aaron Rodgers experiment fails (Remember Brett Favre?) The Jets will be in the hunt for a new HC in 2024!
