New York Jets 1st & 10 – Final Thoughts on the 2019 Season

Stephen Russo goes 1st and 10 on his final thoughts on the New York Jets 2019 season and what comes next…

1st…

I believe in Sam Darnold. Did he make some head-scratching throws this season? Sure. Did he continue to make mistakes that he made in his rookie year? Yes. Was his start on MNF against the Patriots awful? Absolutely! But he also made strides forward and bounced back from a difficult first half of the season for an impressive second half. He is a 22-year-old kid who has played 26 games in 2 years, and has overcome bad offensive lines, subpar coaching, and limited offensive weapons to improve in nearly all statistical categories, throw more touchdowns than interceptions in both years, and get himself to a winning record as a starting quarterback in 2019.  That’s progress.

New York Jets – 20 Moves To Make 2020 Playoffs

Dalbin Osorio with 20 moves for the New York Jets to make the 2020 playoffs

The 2019 NFL regular season has, mercilessly, come to an end for the New York Football Jets. Now you will hear the spin of what a great year this really was from a group of beat writers that never really held the two men ultimately responsible for the abject failure that 2019 was (Mike Maccagnan then, Adam Gase now). The Jets had a splashy offseason by any objective measure, after they signed the best offensive and defensive players available. They allowed  a below average general manager and a below average head coach to oversee their entire offseason, but there really is minimal need to dwell on that as much because the below average head coach got the below average general manager fired when he realized there could really only be one (kind of a reverse Sith operation, for all you Star Wars fans out there), and the Jets were able to save face by hiring a well respected up and comer named Joe Douglas for GM.

He was hired too late in the offseason to really make much of a difference, but he did make three moves that really paid off for this team by trading DE Leonard Williams for two draft picks, and trading for OG Alex Lewis and CB Nate Hairston. The two draft picks netted for Leo Williams should add more young talent to a roster absolutely devoid of it, while Lewis should start at one of the OG positions next year, and Hairston should compete for corner reps with Arthur Maulet to round out what can only be a better group in year two under Gregg Williams. He, also, brought in Braxton Berrios, who solidified the punt return unit and realistically should be good enough to be the 4th wide receiver on this team going forward.

New York Jets – Best and Worst Of 2019

Joe Belic with the five best and five worst things of the New York Jets 2019 season

There’s nothing more cliché than a scene in a movie when kids—in the backseat of a car—ask their parents, “are we there yet,” but no image best describes what the last nine years have been like for Jets fans. It’s like a ride that seems to have no end, and we’re all left wondering if the destination is upon us and when the fun will finally begin.
