TOJ Pick Six: Questions for New York Jets Entering Preseason

Dalbin Osorio with TOJ Pick Six of questions facing the New York Jets heading into August…

You smell that, Jets fans? That is most definitely the smell of optimism and football returning, as we have reached the two-weeks-away-from-the-Green-&-White-Scrimmage portion of the off-season. We have a new coach that’s been here for about six months, and a new general manager that’s only been here for what feels like six days. It’s year two of Sam Darnold, with an influx of talent on both sides of the ball, and a puncher’s chance of ending a too-long playoff drought. There’s still a few questions this team needs answered so, like a Pat Mahomes errant cross body throw that lands in the arms of Jamal Adams in January to seal a playoff win, let’s take this pick six to the house.

Nevertheless, many remain theorizing how the year will play out.  In this week’s “Joe Jet 5,” I make five bold predictions about the upcoming season.
