    I'd say 9-7 is most likely. They were 8-8 last year, and have an improved team, but also a tougher schedule.

    There are no significant losses. Sanchez didn't play at all last year, Cromartie was awful, and Holmes played neither well nor much. This is a better team right now than last year.

    Pats are still the team to beat, until Brady's decline. But I don't see that happening this year. Still, the Jets are, as usual, underrated by the national media.

    I haven't followed the Jets in the off-season that much - but 9-7 or slightly better wouldn't be a surprise. ... Brady's 37 now (hard to believe) - still competitive as h**l, but the "end is in sight" ...

    I think 8-8 is entirely possible but I am hoping to improve over last year. 9-7 would be a nice step

    The team really lost nothing of value, and improved in a few key areas.

    There are obvious weaknesses, but overall, this is a better team than the 2013 8-8 Jets.

    agree 8-8 because of the CB situation and upcoming schedule... however, I would love for it to be 9-7 which is not un reasonable expectation

    It seems that we like to play down to the level of our competition at times. We need to beat the teams we are supposed to beat....in this case....Oakland. We need this win

    I also think 9-7 is about right based on the schedule. It's going to be interesting hoping for the best with the CB situation. IMO Double A is going to make a big jump this year and he'll be able to hold down the fort for a few weeks at CB before returning to a heavy 3 safety type situation.

    Geno impressed me in the preseason with him standing in and delivering under heavy pressure. I think he improves on the turnovers which could even add a few more wins...

    I think will will go 10-6.

    I have faith no matter how things look at the CB position now Rex will have our D playing just as well if not better than last year.

    I think the O is that much improved from last year to give us those extra wins.

    I went with 10 wins last year, and if not for the suspension of Winslow, injury to Kerley, and Geno's play that resulted from those loses. I also have a lot of confidence in the defense, despite the corner situation(anyone remember the Ravens corners of 2 seasons ago?). I'm going with 10 wins again this season...more touchdowns by the offense, the defense will create more turnovers and recover more than 2 fumbles.

    Long term, I think the CB situation isn't as bad as it is made out to be. Milliner may miss a game or two, but if he comes back close to 100%, he has shown signs that he's a legit #1 CB. So the real hole is at #2. Wilson is firmly entrenched at #3. Besides, who was here last year who isn't this year? The ineffective Cromartie? Please. The CB situation is no worse than last year. It's just that there are fewer other holes to serve as distractions.

    So with an improved offense and at worst a net neutral on defense, maybe 10 wins isn't out of the question. I had 9, but I hope you guys are right. 10 should be enough in the AFC for a WC.
