New York Jets – From bad, to undoubtedly worst in the league are the “New York (Football) Jets”. This division is clearly run by the defending champs, New England Patriots, and a solid Miami team behind them, but after that… it is the definition of uninspiring teams in the Buffalo Bills and New York Jets.
The Jets have very little left on offense after the departure of Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker, their starting wide outs from a year ago. They were suppose to lean on Quincy Enunwa to anchor the wide receiver position, but he’s lost for the season with a bulging disk. So the Jets will now be turning their sights to ArDarius Stewart who was drafted in the third round in April’s draft. Sooner rather than later, expect the rookie to be a primary target, playing nearly every snap when he’s deemed ready to handle a full load.
Arguably the biggest position in flux heading into the season is quarterback. The J-E-T-S, JETS… JETS… JETS! Have a forgettable three-headed night mare with names all fighting to be the guy; Josh McCown, Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg. None of which are expected to be considered seriously – if at all – heading into 2018 season and beyond. All three are helping to hold down the fort, until finally getting a legitimate franchise talent in an expected loaded quarterback draft next year.
The safest position on the team is running back, for now. Like driving on the road ways I advise you to proceed with caution, hence a ‘Yield sign’, since I am not expecting the dinosaur Matt Forte to make it through the season, and if he doesn’t, all that is left will be Bilal Powell to show for it. Who I like. It’s just always good to have another reliable option behind the primary just in case an injury hits, and if that did happen… I’m not sure they have the depth beyond those two veteran backs, to take seriously.
New York Jets – Unlike the Bills I literally can see them only winning a game, and it wouldn’t be the least surprising if they go 0 for the season. May the peace be with the latter half of the AFC East, they’re headed for a looooong year!…
