The 2012 49ers, 2015 Cardinals, 2016 Falcons (by postseason, atleast) and 2019 49ers were all significantly better than GB. Some of those teams (2015 and 2019) had already blown out GB in the regular season
2010 and 2014 were probably Rodger’s best teams, followed by 2020. His 2021 team was also quite good but seemed to be playing on borrowed time
Fair or not, when it comes to public perception, past history and records do matter. And I'd say that's a pretty reasonable response and not "just a casual fan response".
Seeing is believing. Any and all new GMs, coaches, and players can say whatever they want, but the bottom line is until the Jets actually prove that it's a new day in NY then nobody is going to believe it and take them serious. And it's not personal towards the Jets either.....this rule applies across the board too. The same thing goes for DET, CHI, CLE, NYG, JAX, LV, and any other team that have struggled to be consistent for years. Look at the Rams....that team had to earn their respect after spending a good part of 15 years being a league punching bag.
I wonder if the pass / run ratio was a reflection of Coach protecting players.
Clearly he's little interest in seeing most of his starters, like McVay does in preseason.
Run plays are much more dangerous for OL; perhaps that's why we were so pass heavy early on.
