Years and years of mediocrity in a sports raved New York City has brought much unrest to the Football Jets. The Jets have not made the playoffs in over 5 years and have simply become a laughable opponent of the Tom Brady AFC East tyrant New England Patriots. Head Coach Todd Bowles has been in office a few years now and his philosophy has brought more discipline into the Jets locker room. Regardless, these spurts of mental development can not compensate for a team that was simply lacking in talent and personnel.
By Selecting Sam Darnold in the 2018 Draft, the New York Jets believe to have sown up their franchise QB. The investment they made in HB Matt Forte wavered, they still have HB Chris Ivory, and it turns out that letting WR Brandon Marshall walk in free agency a few years back wasn’t a bad idea afterall. It’s easy to assume that the AFC East will be continuously dominated by the New England Patriots but with Tom Brady aging, and various locker room distractions, it’s about time for the Jets and fellow AFC competitors to make their move. This isn’t a cartoon however, “Hey Arnold” was popular on Nickolodeon (fiction) , but Sam Darnold be an answer arriving just in the nick of time for New York.
