    New York Jets History

    Originally established as the Titans of New York in 1959 as charter team for the American Football League (AFL) under the ownership of Harry Wismer, the Titans were to rival the Giants albeit in a different league. 

    However, in the early days of the Titans existence they were in financial trouble and Wismer then sold the franchise to a five man group to David Sonny Werblin, who bought the franchise in 1963. 

    By 1963 it could be deemed as a new era for the second New York franchise as Werblin renamed the team from ‘Titans of New York’ to the ‘New York Jets’, the reason being for the ‘Jets’ name was because the stadium that they played in at the time was close to an airport. 

    The Jets made big moves in the off season as Werblin signed former Baltimore Colts coach Weeb Ewbank who coached the side from 1963 to 1973, and by 1965 the Jets picked up Joe Namath who was pick # 1 in the AFL draft (and pick #12 in the NFL draft) as Ewbank’s vision finally came to fruition. 

    Admittedly Ewbank had to wait a few more seasons before he could finally see the full potential of the side that he put together which included future Hall of Famers Namath, Don Maynard and Winston Hill as they led the Jets to one of their most treasured seasons in 1968. 

    The Jets finished the 1968 regular season claiming the AFC Eastern division with a 11-3 record, where they met the Oakland Raiders in the AFL championship game. The Jets carried momentum in the championship game as they defeated the Raiders 27-23 to book their tickets to a maiden Super Bowl appearance in just the third edition of the biggest event in American football. 

    What transpired was a huge shock to the system as the Jets faced Ewbank’s former side the Baltimore Colts (who had a 13-1 record in the National Football League) in Super Bowl III. Ewbank provided a masterclass as the Jets provided one of the biggest upsets in American football and they claimed Super Bowl III with a 16-7 win as Namath was crowned the MVP. 

    The Super Bowl III was not only a stepping stone for the Jets but it made the general public have a deeper connection with the sport as well as delivering much loved fanfare the sport desperately craved. 

    Ewbank’s Jets couldn’t replicate the form the year after in the 1969 season despite finishing first in the AFL eastern standings with a 10-4 record. The Jets could only manage to go as far as the AFL division playoff when they fell to Kansas City, going down 13-6. This would be the end for the Jets in postseason action as they suffered a 12 year drought between 1969-1981. 

    The 80s provided a much needed revival for the Jets who were mostly in the wilderness for the past 12 years as under coach Walt Michaels (who coached the team from 1977 to 1982) led them out of the drought. 

    By 1981 he achieved just that as the Jets finished the regular season in second spot with a 10-5-1 record meaning they earned their first playoff appearance since 1969. Unfortunately, the Jets could only get as far as the wildcard playoffs where they lost to Buffalo Bills 31-27. A year later the Jets learned from their mistakes as they made it all the way to the AFC championship game where they met the Miami Dolphins but just fell short again as they lost by 14 points. 

    The Jets made back-to-back postseason appearances in 1985 and 1986 but it was the latter that was the better season of the two as they made it past the wildcard round defeating the Kansas City Chiefs but lost to the Cleveland Browns in the divisional game. 

    The 90s saw the Jets only appear in the postseason twice in 1991 and in 1998. The 1991 season saw the Jets get knocked out in the wildcard rounds when losing to the Houston Oilers. 

    However, the first year under coach Jeff Van Gundy didn’t exactly go to plan as they experienced their worst season in 1996 when they only won one game when they defeated the Arizona Cardinals 31-21. However, by 1998 Van Gundy turned things around as his side finished first in the AFC East with a 12-4 record. 

    The Jets made easy work of the Jacksonville Jaguars in the divisional playoff game defeating them by 10 points, but the following week was the closest they got to the Super Bowl as they were outdone by the Denver Broncos by 13 points, This was the second time the Jets have fallen one game short of a Super Bowl appearance. 

    By the time the new millennium rolled around the Jets were once again post season regulars appearing in the post season five times in 2001, 2002, 2004, 2006 however, on each occasion they either crashed out in the wildcard round or in the divisional round. But that wasn’t the case in 2009 where once again they fell another game short of a Super Bowl showing, going down to the Indianapolis Colts in the AFC championship game. 

    The new decade of the 2010s didn’t see the Jets as postseason regulars as they only appeared in the postseason once in 2010. Despite having a 11-5 record at the end of the regular season the Jets had to settle for second place in the AFC East, which meant they had to do it the hard way. 

    They began their postseason appearance with a wildcard playoff win over the Colts, then a divisional playoff win over the New England Patriots but just like the previous season and in the 1998 and 1982 seasons the Jets fell one game short again as they crashed out to the Pittsburgh Steelers by five points in the AFC championship game. 

    The Jets could be seen as a what if team in the NFL as they have appeared in the championship game four times and each time falling short of heading into the NFL showpiece event. 

    The 2020 season could not have gone much worse for the Jets. After dropping their opening 13 games of the season, New York were just three more losses away from becoming the third 0-16 team in NFL history, which would’ve given them access  to the No. 1 pick in the 2021 NFL draft and apparent generational talent, Trevor Lawrence.

    However in true Jets fashion, they got in their own way. A victory over the Rams in Week 15 saw New York share the worst record in the league with Jacksonville (1-13). While a Week 16 victory over the Browns resulted in them relinquishing the worst record and subsequently the No. 1 pick to the Jaguars.

    Shortly after the Jets closed their season with a loss to the New England Patriots, the team fired Adam Gase as head coach. Having already warn the embarrassment of an 0-13 start and not getting the No. 1 pick as compensation, Jets fans truly went through hell during the 2020 NFL season.

    Expert 2021 / 2022 Picks & Preview on New York Jets

    After one of the worst seasons in franchise history, the Jets look to start the long journey back into playoff contention. The Jets lost the first 10 games of last season and finished with a 2-14. This earned them the 2nd overall pick in the draft. Now with a flurry of new additions, will the Jets finally show some promise going into the future?

    Front Office

    After the Adam Gase experiment at head coach predictably failed, the Jets now look to Robert Saleh to lead them out of this long rebuild. Robert Saleh is a defensive minded coach who helped lead the 49ers top defense in 2019. Saleh also played a role in the famous legion of boom in Seattle. Saleh began his career as a defensive assistant at Michigan State in 2002.

    After his stint bouncing around in college he became a coaching intern at the Texans in 2005, eventually becoming their assistant linebackers coach. From there Saleh joined the legion of boom before moving onto Jacksonville and then the 49ers. This offseason, Saleh signed a five year contract with the Jets to become their head coach.

    The Jets front office has certainly made Saleh’s life a lot easier with extensive draft capital and many key free agent signings. The biggest move they made was drafting potential future franchise quarterback Zach Wilson with the 2nd pick. The front office has a huge emphasis on the offense with its first 4 straight picks in the draft going toward offensive players. Funnily the Jets drafted 2 players named Michael Carter this year.

    They also signed a number of key offensive free agents, namely star receiver Corey Davis, Keelan Cole, Tevin Coleman and Dan Feeney. The Jets also made splashes in free agency to improve their bad defense with the signing of Carl Lawson, LaMarcus Joyner and Sheldon Rankins to help bolster the defensive core.

    These offseason moves do give the Jets a level of optimism going into the 2021 season. However, this is nowhere near enough to immediately contend for a championship or even the playoffs. We may see the Jets play well down the stretch but we will likely see a Jets team that sits at the bottom of the AFC East division once again.

    Offense

    The Jets offense last season was the worst in the league. The Jets were dead last in both points scored and total yards, 2nd last in passing yards and 10th in rushing yards. This offense couldn’t do the only 2 things an offense needs to do which are moving the ball and scoring points.

    Now with a new quarterback and a bevvy of new talent in all parts of the offense, the Jets offense should improve on last year, even if it is just by the pure fact that you couldn’t get much worse from their performance last year. After drafting potential franchise quarterback Zach Wilson, the Jets have looked to avoid the mistakes of last season and give Wilson the pieces he needs to succeed.

    With the additions of Tight End Tyler Kroft, Wide Receivers Corey Davis, Elijah Moore and Keelan Cole to a receiving core that already included the underrated Jamison Crowder, the Jets passing attack looks like it finally has a respectable level of talent. This significant improvement in the talent should make life easier for Wilson. The offensive line also got a lot better with key additions through the draft and free agency.

    This offensive line should no longer be at the bottom of the league like they were last year, especially with first rounder Alijah Vera-Tucker now in the mix. Last year’s first rounder Mekhi Becton should also progress and make this line even better. The run game led by Tevin Coleman is a worry as Coleman has struggled to stay healthy recently. Behind Coleman, the Jets don’t have much high end talent on paper.

    They do have several young backs that could surprise the league, but right now this is the worst running back room in the league. Overall the offense has gotten a lot better. They should be able to move the chains through the air this season, but still aren’t in the top half of the league yet as they are extremely young and currently lack high end talent.

    Defense

    The Jets defense was also bad last year. The unit was 5th in passing yards allowed, 7th in points allowed and 9th in total yards allowed. Despite their poor play the Jets were actually decent in run defense with 12th best run defense in the league.

    This season the Jets have gone young to try and fix the issues with their defense, especially in the secondary. In fact, the Jets have a trio of rookies in the secondary who will likely find themselves starting at one point or another next to LaMarcus Joyner.

    The Jets biggest strength last season was the defensive line. This should remain their strength in 2021 as they have gotten better with the additions of edge rusher Carl Lawson, Sheldon Rankins and Vinny Curry. This gives Quinnen Williams, Bryce Huff and John Franklin-Myers some much needed help in the pass rush.

    The Jets actually have a decent linebacker group led by 4 time All Pro CJ Mosley. Mosley may be the best linebacker in the league and will be the key difference maker on this defense. He is flanked by young pieces, so as an overall unit their play will be determined by the growth and development of the young guys.

    Although the secondary still has many questions due to their age, the Jets defense has made a step in the right direction, mixing quality veterans with a bunch of young talent. The crux of this defense will be its secondary but if the front 7 can do its job, the Jets defense stops being a bottom 10 unit.

    Overall this Jets team looks like it will improve on its woeful 2-14 record, and actually be a competitive team this year. Playoffs is definitely out of the question but it will be interesting to see how far this Jets team goes.

    New York Jets Betting & Odds History

    The New York Jets finished the 2020 season with the second worst overall record in the NFL, 2-14, and the equal second worst record against the spread, 6-10.

    New York also had the worst offense in the league last season, finished the year as the 32nd ranked team for points (15.2 per game) and yards (279.9 per game), while also being the second worst passing offense in the league (174.8 yards per game).

    In spite of this, the Jets still managed a 7-9 over-under record when looking at total points. However, having conceded 30+ points in nine of their 16 games last season, the seven games that covered the Over, are predominantly due to their opponents winning comfortably.

    The Jets opened with the third worst odds in the league to win Super Bowl LVI, +8000.
