New York Jets – A Culture Of Celebrated Mediocrity

Joe Caporoso on the New York Jets prolonged cultural of mediocrity and how it is impacting expectations around the organization

We’re 4-5. We have nothing to be overconfident about.” – Todd Bowles

There are still some areas we need to improve  upon – We’re still only 4-5.” – Mike Maccagnan

The above quotes from the current New York Jets Head Coach and General Manager were given shortly before their favored team would take on the reeling Tampa Bay Bucs, in a game they would lose 15-10. Despite talking about avoiding a let down and being overconfident, the Jets played like a team who thought they would be entitled to a win. It seems ludicrous that a 4-5 team who hasn’t made the playoffs since 2010 could play in such a way but that is exactly what happened.

It has been an uneven three years for Bowles and Maccagnan but their quotes heading into the Tampa Bay game showed an appropriate alignment on an important reality: the Jets are mediocre and people need to stop being content with it if this organization ever wants to pull itself out of the purgatory muck of mediocrity they have been mired in the past seven years.

Thanksgiving is quickly approaching us and the NFL season is quickly getting away from us.

I usually do the same but most of what I think about revolves around the Jets (sad, I know). So here’s five Jets related things I’m thankful for so far this season. (more…)

New York Jets: Three Up, Three Down – Week 10 Edition

Mike Nash goes three up, three down on the New York Jets heading into the bye week…

Welp, that was ugly.

After absolutely dominating the Buffalo Bills ten days earlier, the Jets played terribly down in Tampa Bay against Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Buccaneers, losing a poorly played football game 15-10. It was not easy to find three players who had a good game but let’s give this week’s three up/three down a shot.
