These are the two parts I'd like to look at: With a lot of Mangini's picks too, the guys drafted came from very tough conferences with top flight competition. If you look at some of Rex's picks in his era, they have been from smaller conference schools with lesser competition. Not sure if that has anything to do with anything, but I have heard people bring that argument up.

I remember in the Jets 2nd preseason game, the guy that was announcing with Ian Eagle stated plain as day, "If you aren't averaging 24PPG or higher, you aren't going to the playoffs." If you look at the Jets so far this year, here are some of their offensive performances:
10 vs Pittsburgh
0 vs San Francisco
17 vs Houston
9 vs Miami
0 vs Seattle
17 vs New England
13 vs Miami
Those aren't getting it done in today's NFL. And the sad part about things is all the mock drafts I have seen so far have the Jets drafting defense in round 1.
