6:00 pm GMT, 12/29

After years of irrelevance, the New York Jets will be hoping that they can get back into the AFC playoff picture with their offseason moves. The most notable transaction they made was the addition of superstar running back Le’veon Bell, who will look to once again dominate after sitting a whole year out. Unfortunately, a lot of the moves were called into question when the Jets fired their GM Mike Maccagnan in May, after allowing him to run the entire offseason. The Jets have never been viewed as a functional franchise, and this didn’t help change the perception. The Jets appear to be all in on this core, for better or worse. Here are the biggest questions they must answer.

Home Record: 0-0 Away Record: 0-0 Conference Record: 0-0 Division Record: 0-0
Bye Week: 4 Head Coach: Adam Gase Offensive Coordinator: Dowell Loggins Defensive Coordinator: Gregg Williams

Jets Are in For Rocky Waters

Can Sam Darnold Make the leap?

The Jets are clearly hoping that Sam Darnold can make a year 2 leap that firmly establishes him as a franchise quarterback moving forward. They’re trying to follow the template that the Rams, Eagles, and Seahawks have all used in recent years. That is, they’re taking advantage of their quarterback’s cheap rookie deal to upgrade the rest of the roster in ways they couldn’t with an expensive quarterback. All three of the Rams, Eagles, and Seahawks had success with this, making the super bowl at the very least. However, that required a significant leap and progression in their quarterback’s play. If Darnold is unable to make that leap, then all those moves meant to make the Jets contenders will prove futile. All these moves were supposedly done to help Darnold grow, so there’s a good chance that Darnold can at least develop into a solid starter this year.

How Good of a Coach is Adam Gase, Really?

There was a not too long-ago time that Adam Gase was one of the most coveted head coaches on the market. It wasn’t hard to see why, as he was the offensive coordinator for the historic Broncos offenses with Peyton Manning and was extremely young as well. He was similar to Sean Mcvay in many ways, but the similarities end in their success on the field. While Sean Mcvay has seen unprecedented success for his age with the Rams, Gase mostly disappointed in 3 seasons with the Dolphins, amassing a combined 23-25 record. Gase will get another shot at the head coaching job with the Jets, and they’re especially hoping he can groom Darnold. While in Denver, Gase got a glowing recommendation from Peyton Manning, one of the greatest quarterbacks ever, and that’s carried him a long way. Still, it's time for Gase to walk the walk, and prove he’s the man for the Jets future. A the very least, the Jets will expect him to significantly improve their bottom 10 offense.

Do the Jets have any Chance of Competing Against the Patriots?

With all these off season moves, the Jets clearly plan on competing now. But can they expect themselves to be super bowl contenders if they have no chance of winning their own division? The Patriots are a roadblock for any potential contenders in the AFC, but especially for the Jets, who are forced to play them twice a year. While the Patriots do seem to be weaker, as they lost some important players in the offseason, if Belichick and Brady are there, they’re expected to be contenders. If the Jets want everyone to take them seriously, they’ll have to prove they can compete in their own division. It isn’t unimaginable, the Jets already stout defense got a boost with the signing of C.J. Mosley and the selection of Quinnen Williams, while their offense can only go up from last year. Still, it’d be very presumptuous to declare them anywhere close to the Patriots level. How they perform against the big bad Patriots in their division will be a way for many to gauge where they stand as a team.
