New York Jets Flight Connections 10/04/20

New York Jets vs Baltimore Ravens

Good morning, GGN! The Jets will give us something to care about again. They will be good again. They will make the playoffs again. I don’t know when, but probably sooner than we think in the midst of a tenth straight season without the playoffs. It is easy to forget now, but the current ownership does not have a history of complete ineptitude. No, the Johnsons have not delivered a Super Bowl, but for the first decade they delivered plenty to cheer about. The Jets made the playoffs in 2001, 2002, 2004, 2006, 2009 and 2010. That’s six playoff berths in 10 years, including two runs to the AFC Championship game. In addition, every year during that stretch the Jets failed to make the playoffs, it was in large part because the starting quarterback suffered a major injury. Had the quarterbacks not gotten hurt, we could easily have been looking at 10 straight years of playoffs. That’s hardly the record of owners who are incapable of delivering a winner.

This isn’t to excuse the current dismal stretch the Jets find themselves in, or the decisions that have been made that got us here. It’s just a bit of a shift in perspective. All is not lost. The Jets can and probably will deliver a winner under the current owners, maybe a lot sooner than we think. One great draft, or two good drafts, and things will look completely different. Until then, hold on Jets fans. It likely won’t be pretty.

If the Jets get the #1 pick in the 2021 NFL draft, should they trade it or keep it?
