Poll Friday: Jets going up or down?

We have another interesting "Poll Friday" blog in the AFC East. This week we check the pulse of our community concerning Rex Ryan and the New York Jets.

The question: Is New York's arrow trending up or down in 2012? It's an intriguing question, considering the Jets imploded last year but aren't far removed from back-to-back AFC title games.

Was last year just a minor stumble? The Jets appeared playoff bound before three straight losses at the end led to a mediocre 8-8 record. New York had chemistry issues that ripped the team apart. New York has talent. The biggest issue is can the Jets get on the same page again and play like a team?

Or was New York's .500 record the beginning of a slide? The Jets haven't done much to improve their roster so far this offseason. They restructured some contracts, signed oft-injured safety LaRon Landry and traded for popular backup quarterback Tim Tebow. Is this enough to get the Jets into the postseason?
