Dan Essien takes a look at the Jets playoff chances in 2019 based on teams that found success in 2018.
In a recent interview, Jets interim owner Christopher Johnson once again refused to give a playoff mandate. Instead he simply insisted he “sure as hell hopes” the Jets make the postseason. We all hope so but sadly our intentions won’t get them there. So instead of simply hoping, let’s use the facts at our disposal to see if the Jets could or even should be a playoff team in 2019 based on who made the postseason in 2018. We’ll use two key areas of comparison: personnel and statistics.
Dan Essien examines how the Jets can build their offensive line and take a big step to becoming a contender.
As we wrap up this season of the NFL, it’s a good time to recap the lessons the Jets have to take into next season in order to be successful.

But a strong, disciplined offensive line might be the key to the Jets future. Let’s take a look at some of the teams that found success this season and where some team’s broke down to examine how the Jets can move forward.

Michael Nania reviews the New York Jets 2018 UDFA class…
Robby Anderson. Wayne Chrebet. Brandon Moore. Damon Harrison. All four of these eventual key Jets contributors did not have their names called in and written on a card by an NFL front office on draft weekend; yet all four have gone on to make names for themselves as an undrafted free agent. Which 2018 Jets UDFAs have the best shot at joining that group?
Michael Nania with mid round offensive line targets for the New York Jets in the NFL Draft…
The quarterback debate has gotten the lion’s share of attention among Jets observers leading up to the draft, and for good reason. This pick is going to crown the next face of New York Jets football. However, it should not go forgotten that nearly as important as the franchise quarterback himself is the tandem of five behemoths tasked with protecting his majesty; together forming a highly important barrier that is only as strong as its weakest link. In their current state, the Jets lack the necessary depth and talent to construct a wall of protection fit for their new prodigy. (more…)

When it came to the offensive line, I decided to call in our resident big man, Mike Nolan, to finish our New York Jets roster preview. Take it away…
I decided to borrow an article format that I saw Terry Blount use about the Seahawks on ESPN.com. Since the Jets were consistently ranked in the bottom 10 of 2013 NFL Offensive Lines, I thought it would be a good format to see if we should expect them to improve at each position in 2014.
