New York Jets – Fixing The Offensive Line

Joe Belic

When attempting to construct a wall to protect their QB, the last general manager used straw and sticks in place of concrete and bricks, especially at the center position, where it’s become common knowledge that weak play could have a trickle-down effect on the rest of the unit.

Jets fandom can rest assure Joe Douglas will be active in free agency and plug several holes (especially along the OL) prior to the draft; this will give the Jets much needed flexibility come draft day.  There is a good possibility Andrew Thomas, Tristan Wirfs, Jedrick Wills, Jerry Jeudy, and CeeDee Lamb are all off the board when it’s time for the Jets to select at 11.

In a recent “Joe Jet 5,” I explored five crucial components to a potential playoff berth: front office autonomy, innovative coaching, a solid offensive line, improved defensive backs, and a franchise QB. Assuming the Jets remain sound in all five areas, a trip to the postseason is a realistic aspiration.  In this week’s “Joe Jet,” I predict 10 victories Gang Green will take to secure a spot in the playoffs for the first time in almost nine years.

Joe Belic with five bold predictions for the 2019 New York Jets

From a “crazy-eyed” press conference to a “rift” in the front office, it’s been a bit of roller-coaster ride this offseason; however, things have settled down and the Jets are once again on course. Adam Gase and new GM Joe Douglas are gelling and Sam Darnold is on the rise. Nevertheless, many remain theorizing how the year will play out.  In this week’s “Joe Jet 5,” I make five bold predictions about the upcoming season.
