New York Jets Post Week 17 Mock Draft

Greg Armstrong With A Post Week 17 Mock Draft…

The New York Jets season has ended and for the ninth straight season, there will be no playoffs. There is a massive amount of work to be done in the offseason. Barring anything insane happening, Adam Gase will be back for 2020. The roster needs a major overhaul at several key positions but there also needs to be depth added. The Jets have long been one injury away from starting practice squad level players. I took a stab at a post Week 17 mock to see if we can add some pieces that hopefully can push this team into the playoff hunt. (Mock draft done with The Draft Network mock draft machine).

New York Jets – Requiem For The 2019 Season

Joe Caporoso with a requiem for the New York Jets 2019 season

Another New York Jets season has come and gone without the team sniffing a playoff spot. The team was pragmatically eliminated when they lost a week 13 game to the 0-11 Cincinnati Bengals, spoiling an otherwise productive second half that saw them finish 6-2 in their final 8 games.

The 6-2 was not enough to dig them out of an embarrassing 1-7 start and ultimately netted them a 7-9 record overall, the same record Adam Gase had last year in Miami and the same amount of wins he’s averaged over his four years as a NFL Head Coach (30-34). It was the worst debut season for a new Head Coach since Rich Kotite for the Jets and stretched their playoff drought to nine years, the third longest drought in the NFL and ninth longest drought in the big four professional American sports. 

Despite all the above, the team did improve their record by three games from 2018 and there is a zero percent chance any major changes will happen to the coaching staff. Jets fans should not expect a playoff mandate from Christopher or Woody Johnson this offseason and should begin accepting the reality that Adam Gase is probably here through 2021 even if the team stretches to ten years without the postseason, despite the team’s struggles on offense in 2019. This is as much of Gase’s organization now as anybody not named Jimmy Sexton.  

What ultimately happened this year and what did we learn?

New York Jets 1st & 10 – Ugly Winning

Stephen Russo goes 1st and 10 on the narratives around the New York Jets season and their ugly win over Pittsburgh

1st…

It seems as though there are only two possible narratives on this 2019 Jets’ season that has been, in a word, underwhelming. Regardless of the current record and the chance for this team to get to 7-9 with a win over a JV Bills team in Buffalo to improve their win total 3 games from 2018, I believe it’s safe to say that more was expected. Fans needed more from Adam Gase. We wanted to see more progress from Sam Darnold. We thought Le’Veon Bell would be more reminiscent of his Pittsburgh days. And basically, we felt that the offense and this team would be more competitive than it has been all season. I think, to varying degrees, everyone (well most everyone, I am speaking to Jets fans) can agree that all of those things are true.
