    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. 

    Expert 2020 / 2021 Picks & Preview on New York Jets

    If you are a fan of the New York Jets, then you know that the only thing that matters right now is how they are expected to perform in the 2020 / 2021 season. Do the New York Jets have the star power to make it all the way to the Super Bowl in 2021? Have a read on below at SportsTips expert picks & preview on the New York Jets:

    Preview on New York Jets Head Coach: Adam Gase 

    In just four seasons as an NFL head coach, Adam Gase is already at his second franchise, and with only one winning season to his name. In a three-year stint at the Miami Dolphins, Gase led a 10-6 team to a wild card game appearance in his first season. 

    Since then, Gase’s teams have delivered a 6-10 record in 2017, and a 7-9 record in 2018. Within two weeks of being fired by the Dolphins, Gase had been signed by the Jets for the 2019 season, where he led New York to a 7-9 record. 

    Having not been to the playoffs since 2010, Jets fans and officials need to see improvement, they need to see a competitive team, a unified team and a team with at least a chance for playoffs. 

    There is a trend here and it’s losing, that is not to say that Gase is responsible for these struggling franchises, in fact his career record is only four games below .500 (30-34). However, if he is to post a fourth losing record in just five years, he will likely find himself under pressure come season’s end.

    Preview on New York Jets Offensive Weapon: Sam Darnold, QB

    It’s a tough situation when your third season as a pro footballer is shaping up to be make or break for your career, but that is a reality for Jets quarterback Sam Darnold. Although Darnold improved in almost every statistical category from his rookie season in 2019, his embarrassing Monday Night Football performance against the Patriots is all the evidence critics needed. 

    However, Darnold still managed a winning record (7-6) as the Jets starting QB and will be coming into 2020 fit and no longer carrying mononucleosis. The Jets have finally addressed their issues across the offensive line, which should give Darnold more time to make a play, and have added Breshad Perriman (WR) and Denzel Mims (WR) to an offense that already features Le’Veon Bell and Jamison Crowder. 

    The talent is there, however, with the coach and general manager who drafted Darnold at the third pick in 2018 both no longer with the Jets, 2020 is going to be a crucial year for Darnold, and may determine whether he joins them or turns his career and the franchise around.

    Preview on New York Giants Jets Weapon: Marcus Maye, FS

    Prior to First Team All Pro safety Jamal Adams requesting to be traded to the Dallas Cowboys, Marcus Maye would have been considered one of the Jets most valued pieces to trade. However, since Adams’ contract dispute has escalated, Maye’s position on the team is seemingly more solidified than ever. 

    Taken in the second round (after Adams) of the 2017 draft, Maye is a very talented defender in his own right. In 2019, Maye notched 65 tackles, a career-high seven pass breakups, and an interception. 

    If Adams is successfully traded or even if he holds out from the Jets, Maye will be given more responsibility and opportunity to prove himself as an elite free safety in the league as the Jets main man of defence. If the Jets and Adams can come to an agreement, Maye and Adams have the potential to become the best safety pairing in pro football.

    New York Jets Betting & Odds History

    The Jets were in some cases always up against it in the 2019 season as they began their season with a +8000 odds on September 9 when they faced the Buffalo Bills. The first game didn’t go to plan and neither did their second or third as by game week four (after the bye) they were 0-3 with +20000 value next to their name on September 24. 

    It rose up to +30000 on October 7 when they played Philadelphia Eagles (in a game they lost) as they were already having their backs against the wall with 0-4 start by October 8. The Jets however, piled on an impressive performance against Dallas Cowboys to give them their first win of the season in game week five, but even that standalone win wasn’t enough to influence the bookmakers as two days later on October 16 they were valued at +35000. 

    Leading into their next three games the Jets were at +50000 on October 22, as they suffered a three game losing streak which included losses to New England Patriots, Jacksonville Jaguars and the Miami Dolphins and by November 5 their value skyrocketed to +100000. 

    But the Jets didn’t let that hinder their spirits as leading up to the New York Giants derby they were marked at +83333 on November 11. The Jets won against their rivals the Giants, and it started a three game winning streak as they gained wins over Washington Redskins (known at the time) and Oakland Raiders (now the Las Vegas Raiders) as their value dropped to +50000.

    Their form was inconsistent and it showed as their odds fluctuated to +71667 on the day of their game with Cincinnati (a game they would lose) on December 2. By the next day the Jets saw their value elevate to +91667 (they ended the season with those odds) even though they had four more remaining games, their odds didn’t change. 

    The Jets responded when they defeated the Dolphins, but lost to Baltimore Ravens the following week and ended with back-to-back wins over Pittsburgh Steelers and the Buffalo Bills. 

    The inconsistent form also impacted the Jets when it came to their against the spread standings as well as their over/under standings. The Jets finished the 2019 season with a 7-9-0 against the spread record ranking them 23 in the NFL and fourth in the AFC East Division.

    While they were just outside the top 10 when they were the home team with a record of 4-4-0 placing them 11th in the NFL and second in the AFC East. When they were on the road with a 3-5-0 record, the Jets were ranked 29th in the NFL and fourth in the AFC East. 

    When looking at their over / under record the Jets finished 2019 with a 7-9-0 form guide which could only mean they were ranked 29th in the NFL rankings. Despite being ranked 29th in the over / under record it was good enough for the Jets to be in second place when it came to the AFC East standings. 

    The Jets slipped down the order when they were the home team as they were ranked 30th in the NFL with a 2-6-0 record as well as being fourth in their division. However, when they were the away team it saw them elevate to being in the top 10 in the NFL, when they were ranked eighth with a 5-3-0 record and first in the AFC East standings.
