Joseph Ferraiola makes the case for sitting Sam Darnold in year one…
In many ways the 2018 NFL Draft was a critical one for the New York Jets. Jets general manager Mike Maccagnan made a bold decision in mid-March to trade up from the 6th overall selection to the 3rd overall selection that was previously occupied by the Indianapolis Colts. Maccagnan sent Indianapolis the 6th overall pick in addition to the 37th, 49th and a future 2019 2nd round pick to move up three spots in the process.
Joey Ferriaola breaks down potential year one impacts for the New York Jets 2018 NFL Draft class…
The 2018 NFL Draft should prove to be a fruitful one for the New York Jets despite only having six selections. General Manager Mike Maccagnan drafted his QB of the future in USC’s Sam Darnold which was enough to satisfy a fanbase starved of quality QB play in the last decade and a half. However, the team also had some intriguing selections in the middle and late rounds that can potentially have an impact in their 1st year in the NFL. I’ve broken down the selections into how I see them fitting into the roster during their rookie seasons.
When the New York Jets elected to draft quarterback Sam Darnold with the third overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, they made a proclamation that they were looking to their future. Now that they have made that selection, they should make sure to not rush things and keep that future as bright as possible. To do this, the team should ease Darnold into things and not rush him into playing before they feel that he is ready.

Oh, I’ve been that guy. The one that wanted to see Mark Sanchez suit up in
the green and white despite his college coach telling him it was too early
to go the one that was rooting for Tim Tebow to get a few shots under center for that cup of coffee he was up in East Rutherford (or down if you factor in
his current Binghamton residence) and yes, I was that same person who
wanted gang green to roll the dice with Johnny Football.
J-E-T-S! Jets! Jets! Jets! Some say you can still faintly hear this chant echoing across the aisles of MetLife Stadium. It’s more likely, however, in 2018, that this cheer will be uttered by opposing fans upon looking up their team’s schedule and seeing that green-and-white logo. Yes, seeing the Browns on the schedule is exciting, too. But guess what – Vegas has released the odds to win Super Bowl LIII and who is dead last? Not the Browns, but the lowly Jets. So what are the New York Jets odds for next season? Those bold enough to place money on a Jets Super Bowl and have their dreams come true will be rewarded with 150-1 for their money. You can now place bets easily on-the-go with BetPhoenix mobile, especially useful for those Jets fans still in hiding (maybe under the cover of a paper bag).
There are probably some die-hard Jets fans that are positive their team is going to win the Super Bowl next season. It doesn’t matter to them that the Jets haven’t made the playoffs since 2010. They could care less that the team finished 5-11 the last two years. It doesn’t bother them that even the Cleveland Browns have better odds to win than they do.
While some pundits were predicting that the Jets would win maybe one or two games last season, a 5-11 record is nothing to get excited about, though perhaps that win total might have been a little higher if they hadn’t lost their surprise star of the season, Josh McCown, in Week 14. Regardless of what might have been, the bottom line is that the Jets need to improve significantly in 2018, and to achieve that, the roster will need plenty of work.
Jared Wolff on five younger free agents the New York Jets should target this offseason
The New York Jets are going to be making upgrades in free agency this offseason. After a few cuts, the team will have upwards of $100 million to spend. General Manager Mike Maccagnan has three straight years of no postseason appearances under his belt and will not be afraid to spend. However, if the team is going to spend they should be focusing on younger players. (more…)
For Jets fans it comes as no surprise that the Jets are not in the Super Bowl this year. They entered the season on some sportsbooks at 1000-1 odds to hoist the Lombardi Trophy. ESPN’s Mike Clay projected that the Jets would go 0-16. I am sure he’s still getting bombarded with hate emails after the Jets ended the season with 5 wins. The early odds for 2019 recently came out and the Jets are 100-1 to win the Super Bowl next year. Not as bad as last year but still among the least favorite teams to with the Super Bowl. So now we await the draft and see how management goes about addressing the team needs in the offseason. In the meantime, spark up the grill, make sure the cooler Is loaded and take a chance at making some money on one of the more then hundreds of prop bets that will be available for the Super Bowl.
