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.
Ben Blessington with part 1 of his offseason that will end the New York Jets playoff drought
After a somewhat promising 2017 season, the New York Jets will look to build on their positives in 2018.

Mike Nolan takes a look at some of the 2014 Free Agents that the New York Jets should be scouting in the NFL playoffs.
It’s obvious that the New York Jets have some holes they need to fill if they want to get back to playing football in January. John Idzik has made it clear that his offseason mantra is to use free agency to fill those holes so that the Jets can take the best player available when it comes time to draft. I’m sure most Jets fans will be glued to the TV over the next few weeks despite their team not playing. Here are some potential free agents that the Pro Personnel Staff should be taking a closer look at throughout these playoffs at some positions of need.
