Today we return to FanPulse. Throughout the NFL season and offseason SB Nation sends a survey to fans asking for opinions on their favorite team and the league at large.
Jets fan confidence was low throughout much of the 2019 season. It was a disappointing campaign for the team. In spite of a record free agent spending spree and an offseason of hope, the Jets finished 7-9 and out of the Playoffs.
The second half of the year was better than the first half for the Jets. After a nightmare 1-7 start, the team went 6-2 in the second half. It wasn’t enough to salvage a postseason run, but it also was a huge improvement.
How do fans view the team heading to the offseason? That late surge didn’t do much to move the needle. Only 11% of Jets fans polled expressed confidence in the team’s direction.
The offseason always breeds confidence, though. I am sure we will see those numbers rise over the next few months.
