New York Jets – What Should 2019 Expectations Look Like?

Joe Caporoso on what 2019 expectations for the New York Jets should be

Let’s not beat a dead horse and get this out of the way first. Since the end of 2010, the New York Jets have the 28th best record in the NFL at 50-78. They are one of three teams not to make the playoffs (along with Cleveland and Tampa Bay). Over the past three years, ostensibly the start of TRUE REBUILD portion of the Mike Maccagnan era, they are 14-34, the 30th best record in the NFL.

Entering this offseason, the Jets will be top three league wide in available cap space for the second year in a row and top five in cap space for the third time in five years. This will be the fourth time in five years they have a top six pick in the NFL Draft. Their General Manager is entering his fifth season with the organization and their newly hired Head Coach will be entering his fourth straight year as a NFL Head Coach, with all years spent in the AFC East. 

Long story short…the time for the rebuild, the competitive rebuild, the true rebuild, the whatever rebuild…has passed. With that being said, what should expectations be for the New York Jets 2019 season?

Mock Draft Monday: Post Super Bowl

Clayton Smarslok with a full two round mock for the 2019 NFL Draft

As a Jets fan, the season could have ended in a better way than it did. It wasn’t ideal but after seeing the Patriots win five previous titles, I have learned to live with it and move on from it and that’s exactly what I am doing here. It is officially draft season with the 2018-19 football season completely behind us. With the season coming to an end, it seems like the perfect time to come out with my first two round mock draft of the year.

In this edition it was a mixture of what should happen and predictions of what will happen on the last weekend of April. For instance, because of Jeffery Simmons’ issues in the past, he will not be submitted into this mock draft or any others in the future, even though he will likely find his way into the first round. This one’s for you Jets fans, hope you like it!

NFL Best Bets Against the Spread – Super Bowl 53 Edition

I went 0-2 against the spread for the Conference Championship games, as my awful gambling season continues. Not only was it painful to lose on one of the worst missed penalties in sports history, but it was immediately followed by another gut-wrenching loss for the Chiefs. I should probably just quit gambling forever at this point, but where is the fun in that? 

To celebrate Super Bowl Sunday, I’ll be giving my three favorite prop bets for the game, as well as my pick against the spread. Shoutout to all the readers who followed along this season, despite my losing record.
