It is official. Football is finally here. There is already betting going on in Las Vegas as to who will win it all in February, but those change every day. There is one question that a lot of people are wondering. What are the New York Jets going to do this year? More importantly is the question Will they ever win the Super Bowl?
The Jets have been a train wreck as of late. I say that because, like a train wreck, you want to look away, but you just can’t help yourself and you have to look at it. In the people’s defense, it is really hard not to pay at the very least a little bit of attention to them. They are constantly in the media, pulling some sort of crazy stunt. From the now infamous Tim Tebow fiasco, to whether or not Mark Sanchez can pull it together and be the starting quarterback the organization feel that he can be, and not the quarterback that makes stupid mistakes and needless interceptions. Who can forget his now legendary “butt fumble” during the Monday Night Football game against the New England Patriots.
Yes, gone are the days of them winning a championship, or even as of last year, making the playoffs. Jets fans have went 43 NFL seasons without a win in the big game. 1968 is a long time to wait. Not since Joe Namath promised them a win in the Super Bowl against the then Baltimore Colts have they been successful. Sure, they have made the AFC championship game for a couple years straight, but that can only help them out so far.
They have made some interesting changes this offseason. Revis island has left for a more sunny climate. Geno Smith has been brought in from the draft to give Sanchez what the Jets higher ups the fire lit under him to get him to reach the next level of playing. The Jets need a lot of help in a lot of areas. I think that if you look at everything that has went on in the last couple of years, they are kind of in a re building phase to try to get that perfect formula that it takes to win in this league. They are not a bad team, but when you are in the kind of division like they are in, you really have to take a look at the teams as an individual team and not as a division. Wll they ever win it? Only time will tell.
