2017 New York Jets Season Preview

First of all, I thank you for clicking on this. “Who cares” is what 99.8% of people that saw this link thought as they scrolled right past it. For the passionate few, we’ll remember who was there for the New York Jets during their darkest hours.

For those of you that are new, or would like a refresher, I broke down the Jets schedule right after it was released back in April – It’s going to be a tough one, but we’re going to make the most of it. Let’s get after it:

Forgetting Brandon Marshall: A New Era in Jets Football Begins Thursday

The New York Jets went all-in before the 2015 season and as we all know, were this close to making the playoffs:

Then, 2016 happened. The Jets found themselves with a roster of big names and big contracts, but little results to show for it and they are now poised to pick 6th overall in Thursday’s draft.  The Jets are now in full rebuild mode and will most likely spend the next 2-3 years in NFL purgatory. HOWEVA, when done correctly, a rebuild can be almost as much fun as a playoff run…almost. Seeing the future develop in front of your very eyes is a pleasant sight to see, as we saw with guys such as Quincy Enunwa, Robby Anderson, Bilal Powell, Leonard Williams, Wesley Johnson, and even Bryce Petty getting better week by week.

Way Too Early and Pessimistic 2017 New York Jets Game-by-Game Predictions

Today is normally like Christmas Eve, but this year’s NFL schedule release was like getting a cat when all you’ve ever wanted was a dog. The Jets will be facing 5 playoff teams from 2016, including the Super Bowl Champion Patriots twice, and NFC Champion Falcons (Miami, Kansas City, and Oakland are the others). On top of that, they’re slated to go against the Broncos and Bucs, who both were tied for their respective Wild Cards at the end of last season but lost the tiebreakers. So, for those of you counting at home, at least 9 games on the 2017 schedule are against playoff-caliber teams. That isn’t counting one of the best offenses in the league in New Orleans, and a former MVP trying to turn around his team in Cam Newton and the Panthers. Strap in folks, this year could get ugly.

With about 5 months to go before Week 1, which includes the Draft, training camp, and linebackers punching quarterbacks, I’m here to give you the season preview that nobody wants, needs, or asked for.

Josh McFrown

It’s been awhile since my last Jets rant so I’m going to preface this post by asking all of you to fasten your seat belts, keep your carryon baggage underneath your seat, make sure your seat is back and that your folding trays are in their full upright position.

The New York Jets signed 37 year old journeyman Quarterback Josh McCown to a 1 year, $6 million contract. He has never played a full season in the NFL, has never made a playoff appearance, and to be blunt, is trash. The last time he was in New York, he spiraled out of control so fast you would’ve thought you were watching the pilot of LOST.
