    I am on the phone and can’t post a link but someone might find the article and post here.

    ESPN Power Index has us finishing AFC East behind Bills and Dolphins but make it to playoffs as 7th seed.

    I think Jets will pass at least one of Bills or Dolphins and finish as 6th seed at least. We shall see.

    The Bills are still very good. I don't view them any differently than last year. Dolphins are chomping at the bit and everything really; really depends on Jets defense. If we can routinely stop the sideways-plays: runs, screen-plays and play actions, which we should be able to do, then I say yea maybe. But a lot of things would have to go right for us, or wrong for those two teams because they have built chemistry in a system over a few years now and are starting to take off (Bills may have plateaued, but they are essentially the same team and the division is still theirs to lose IMO). Miami may end being the highest scoring team in history.
    Maybe not as proficient against top defs, but Miami will unremorsefully destroy average or worse defenses this year. They will be a tough team to beat once, much less, twice. I don't think we can discount the Pats either. Nah, I am not buying the hype, but I am feeling like a new kind of freedom. I feel like we are headed in the right direction, and that is all I ever ask for as a Jets fan. I love rooting for this team when I can envision at least a small path towards playoff legitimacy, which I have not been able to do in any fashion since 2021.

    On the paper the Jets should be in the mix for a playoff spot and maybe even the division. Can Rodgers stay healthy. Can the team in general stay healthy. I feel confident the defense will be solid and Breece and G. Wilson will be playmakers on offense. Even if Rodgers gets hurt, Tyrod Taylor is more than capable of being an effective game manager type of QB who can help them win games. But with the Jets it still comes down to proving it on the field. Talk is cheap so let's see them prove it starting in September.

    I personally think we will be watching Jordan Travis in mop up duty by November as the team battles to stay out of the cellar. But I hope I'm wrong.

    When your only hope is that the 40 year old injured and unfocused QB stays healthy and focused, its not good IMO

    OTAs are the next thing to playing in the back yard with your kids.

    True but they are also Optional, he didn't go to those in GB. Seems pretty dialed in.

    Thanks for the Post

    I think 6th or 7th is accurate

    And a number 12 league ranking is tremendous progress..or should I say pundit projection

    Nonetheless a real long shot to make it to the SB

    We win the Division and better the Bills and Dolphins would make me a true believer

    Truth be told we are 2 years out for our SB imo

    If the defense is as good as last season and the offense improves to average, they will win the division. All big "ifs". Then again, every team has a lot of "ifs".

    But that power level ranker guy said they’d be first. I want a refund.

    Sad part is, at this point if it’s a 7th seed and a loss in the wildcard round- I’ll take it.

    Football in this area has been bad this past decade or so but I didn't realize it was this bad.

    And this ranking is based on absolutely nothing.

    Actually, this rating is based on an objective statistic, clearly described in its headline.

    Well this is what their website defines it as, basically a series of simulations based on current season statistics, of which there are none.

    https://www.espn.com/nfl/fpi

    So it seems the current ratings might be based on the results of 2023 only?

    Actually, my response was related to the chart in post #15, as that is what I believed post #17 referred to although that may have been my mistake; it may have just been a generic comment related to power ranking, rather than win percentage.

    I am no fan of any type of rankings that rely on subjective input. 10,000 simulations, or 10 million do not tell a true story if any part of weighting multiple factors is arbitrary or subjective. I would also note that I have never seen a comprehensive season end post mortem review and critique of predictions by anyone or organization that published them. Telling us they picked the Super Bowl winner is not good enough for me in a league of 32 teams.
