Jets Eliminated From Playoffs

Adam Hunger-USA TODAY Sports

It was going to happen at some point, but the Jets have been mathematically eliminated from the NFL Playoffs this season.

This marks a fourth consecutive years the Jets have missed the postseason. That marks the longest postseason drought for this franchise since a six year stretch from 1992 through 1997. That spanned four head coaches, Bruce Coslet, Pete Carroll, Rich Kotite, and Bill Parcells. It is starting to feel like this franchise has once again sunk to the depths of the 1990's. Four years with no postseason is a really long time in the NFL unless you're satisfied by  clearing the low bar of not being as bad as teams like Oakland.

Like the Jets did two decades ago in hiring Parcells, it feels like we are at a point where the franchise needs to think big and think bold with its next hire. The status quo is not acceptable.
