New York Jets Rank 76 in ESPN Ultimate Team Rankings

The Jets come in 76th as ESPN rates professional teams across North America from the NBA, NHL, NFL, and MLB.

The criteria:

Bang For The Buck (BNG): Wins during the past three years (regular season plus postseason) per revenues directly from fans, adjusted for league schedules.

Fan Relations (FRL): Openness and consideration toward fans by players, coaches and management.

Ownership (OWN): Honesty and loyalty to core players and local community.

Affordability (AFF): Price of tickets, parking and concessions.

Stadium Experience (STX): Quality of arena and game-day promotions as well as friendliness of environment.

Players (PLA): Effort on the field and likability off it.

Coaching (CCH): Strength of on-field leadership.

Title Track (TTR): Championships already won or expected in the lifetime of current fans.

The Patriots finished ahead  of the Jets at 38th, the only AFC East club ahead of Gang Green.

Unlike other similar lists that I feel have shortchanged the Jets, I think this is pretty fair. The coaching rates 10th. Where they really get dinged are places involving fan relations such as affordability. The way the team has outrageously raised ticket prices, particularly doing so right before the lockout, was wrong in my book and reflected in the ratings.

These lists are as always very subjective so do not take them too seriously.
