The New York Jets have had an interesting season. The Jets are currently 7-6 and have improved from last season. New York received a lot of hype over the offseason. General manager Joe Douglas and Robert Saleh got to work and made some good acquisitions. Acquisitions include C.J Uzomah, Tyler Conklin, and D.J Reed. The Jets also drafted Ahmad “Sauce” Gardner, Jermaine Johnson, Breece Hall, and Bam Knight. Most of their moves have helped them this season.
The Jets began the season hot. Robert Saleh’s team recorded impressive victories over the Dolphins, Packers, Buffalo, and Pittsburg. Robert Saleh’s team has hit a rough patch recently. The Jets lost two close games against the Buffalo Bills and Minnesota Vikings. The playoffs are around the corner. The question is will the Jets make it? I don’t think so. Please read and enjoy the article.
One of the reasons I believe the Jets won’t make the playoffs is the quarterback position. New York has had multiple quarterbacks suit up. The Jets began the season with Joe Flacco, then gave the keys to Zach Wilson. Mike White has started the Jets last three games and is 1-2 as a starter.
Quarterback is the most important position on the gridiron. The Jet’s quarterbacks haven’t played well enough to lead them to the next level. Zach Wilson was benched because he struggled with his mechanics. Wilson also struggled with maturity and didn’t take responsibility for his mistakes. Mike White hasn’t played well since his debut against the Chicago Bears. White threw 2 interceptions agaisnt the Vikings and didn’t see the field well. Against the Bills White didn’t throw a touchdown and struggled to move the offense down the field. White has had some good moments, but I don’t think he can lead the Jets to the playoffs.
New York Jets Coaching and Offense
Robert Saleh has proven to be one of the better defensive coaches in the NFL. Saleh’s defense has played well this season and has been dominant. However, the Jets offense hasn’t been consistent. The Jets offense currently ranks 19th in the NFL, has averaged 20 points per game, and 336.8 yards per game. Offensive Coordinator Mike Lafleur has put the Jets offense in bad positions. The Jets offense struggled against the Vikings and Bills. The NFL has shifted to more of an offensive league. Offenses have to put together drives, score points, and help defenses.
The Jets are currently rank 9th in the AFC playoff picture. The Jets have four games left to play. Saleh’s team finishes the season against the Detroit Lions, Miami Dolphins, Seattle Seahawks, and Jacksonville Jaguars. These games will be tough, and the Jets have to find a win. However, it’s easier said than done. the Jets opponents are good, have played well, and have good offenses. If the Jets lose one game their playoff, chances are over. I don’t think the Jets offense has enough willpower to win four straight games.
