It will be difficult for the New York Jets not improve on the 2012 season
The 2012 New York Jets were a 6-10 team. There have been plenty of Jets seasons that registered worse records but last year was one of the least enjoyable, if not the least enjoyable season in recent memory.

Connor Rogers with a closer look at New York Jets outside linebacker Antwan Barnes, who could be a x-factor on defense in 2013
Coming into the 2013 offseason, new general manager John Idzik had many holes to fill on the New York Jets roster with one of the worst salary cap situations in the NFL. With a budget that required Idzik to pursue “bargain bin” players, former San Diego Chargers pass rush specialist Antwan Barnes was signed by the Jets to a three year deal. Barnes is coming off of a year in which he was limited due to a hamstring injury and put on the injured reserve in December. Although Barnes doesn’t possess Pro Bowl caliber career numbers, there are multiple reasons he’s poised for success and a big role with the current Jet defense.

What is Rex Ryan’s job security level heading into the New York Jets 2013 season?
One of the most common questions surrounding the New York Jets this year is “what is it going to take for Rex Ryan to keep his job?” The Jets have low expectations and many argue that the front office has set him up to fail so new General Manager John Idzik can bring in his own guy next off-season. Rex Ryan isn’t an optimum situation but I wouldn’t paint him as a dead man walking quite yet.

Dalbin Osorio breaks down New York Jets tight end Kellen Winslow Jr

Cole Patterson finds parallels between the NFL and Game of Thrones
The art of story telling is one of the greatest aspects of humanity. Some have the uncanny ability to spin intricate tales that absorb the audience and create catharsis. George R.R. Martin is one such rare individual. His Song of Ice and Fire series has enchanted millions. HBO’s adaptation of the series, Game of Thrones, brought Martin’s visions to life and inspired a massive cult following. The popular show has turned many of us into drooling, nerd-slaves to Martin and HBO’s genius.
What on earth does this have to do with football you may ask? Little and less. Yet, the NFL and its dramatic matchups, ever evolving rivalries, and team defections create a literary piece all its own. The inner workings of the NFL can be told as a story; complete with plot twists and cliffhangers, antagonists and protagonists. With that in mind we would like to unite the oft overlapping fan bases of the NFL and G of T by drawing parallels between the National Football League and the world of Westeros.
