New York Jets
The 2006 football betting season was full of pleasant surprises for the New York Jets. This was a team that entered the football betting season in the dumps. The expectations were zero and no one expected this group to have a winning football betting season. There were all kinds of question marks hanging in the air for NFL betting fans. Foremost among these concerns was who would play running back? Team legend and future hall-of-famer Curtis Martin was injured and expected to retire during the football betting season. And as if that wasn’t bad enough, NFL betting fans were not really sure who would be the QB either. Chad Pennington came off of major surgery and his arm was still. No one knew if he’d be healthy or not, and even if he was, no one expected much from his already weak shoulder. Free agents were even brought in to compete for the job. However, at the end of the day all these worries seemed unfounded playing in the football betting season.
Not only was Pennington okay to play, but he did so with relative success. His first full football betting season in many years of injuries turned out to be a great football betting year. The team went 10-6. It didn’t win the divisions but it wrapped up a wild card playoff birth. Under the guidance of first year coach Eric Mangini this team showed remarkable progress during the football betting season. Mangini, the former Patriot’s assistant was named as the team’s head coach, and the youngest in the NFL, in the football betting off-season. No one had ever heard of the guy and not much was expected for NFL betting enthusiastic. But whatever Mangigni did worked, and he even beat his ex-employer and division winner, the New England Patriots. Perhaps it was simply a change of coach or people finally being healthy, but his team was borderline good last football betting season.
Pennington threw for 3300 yards with 17 TDs and 16 INTs. His lack of arm strength still hung a lot of deep balls up for defenders to pluck out the sky but his smarts at QB helped him to an 82.6 QB rating of a 64% completion NFL betting rate. The running back spot wasn’t really that difficult to fill either, at least as temporary stop gap. Rookie Leon Washington from FSU, who didn’t even start in college was drafted in the middle rounds by New York and paid immediate dividends. He proved to have plenty of NFL skills and was hard to tackle for opponents. The team’s number one pick in the first also proved a great pick, as did its second pick in the first round it acquired in a trade.
D’Brickishaw Ferguson, the mammoth tackle out of Virginia proved to be a very solid pick and will anchor the line for football betting years to come. The other first round pick Nick Manigold from Ohio State also proved an immediate starter and will also be blocking for the Jets for quiet some time. The Jets also picked up a QB on day one. Kellen Clemens the QB out of Oregon didn’t see any snaps last football betting year but the team really like what this guy can do and he could be competing for a starting job in 2007 football betting season.
Even though the team was much improved it still had its weaknesses. Despite the crafty pick up of Washington this team still had a big problem trying to replace workhorse Curtis Martin and NFL betting fans felt it. It had no 1,000 yard rusher and barely cleared 1,000 yards as a team rushing, which ranked it 20th in the NFL in rushing. Its total yards per game were actually 25th, which is pretty bad when you factor in the team’s 197 yards a game in the air. And for a team that finished 10-6 there defense was pretty bad as well. In terms of total defense this unit was 20th in the league. It didn’t allow much scoring though which helped out tremendously. Its 18 points a game was the sixth lowest total in the NFL. The team’s best football betting stat as compared to the rest of the NFL was third down conversions which always essential to winning games. The team converted 99 third downs which ranked fourth in the NFL. The team’s worst stat was average yards per rushing play, at just 3.5 yards a run, which equaled the third worst in all of football betting and NFL betting reports.
