    That's a 50% improvement in only one year!


    Who wouldn't be happy with that?

    Which would all but guarantee we go 12-4 the following year.

    This team will not be worse than 7-9. Book it.

    I love it when people tell me to "book it" based on their predictions. I'll be happy to do so with your money, but with mine, not so much.

    The way the team is currently constructed they will finish anywhere from 6 to 10 wins. It depends on how quickly Darnold and co can adapt to the new offense, training camp acquisitions, injuries, luck, etc.

    Positives: Fresh start, Darnold now has a year experience, new weapons on O, soft road schedule in regards to mileage

    Negatives: Shaky OL, lack of CB depth, new playbook and coaching ( can go both ways )

    The Jets can finish 10-6 with a WC berth ( trending upwards toward 2020 ). They can also finish 6-10 which would leave Gase on the hot seat but I would imagine a 6 win season would be the result of mainly injuries and a lack of talent at the above mentioned positions.

    Luck, schedule timing, and a few bad bounces can also be the difference.

    The Pats have taken advantage of a shitty bunch of AFC East teams.

    It will be a struggle, if we even get into the playoffs, until we can knock them off their perch atop the division.

    This year will probably be more of the same. The Pats winning the division again, the Jets/Bills fight it out for 2nd and possibly a WC, with Miami being garbage and coming in last place.

    Wash, rinse & repeat.

    We needs to change that narrative.

    And soon.

    I'm not getting any younger.

    At this late juncture and still seeing gaping holes at CB and Center, I think Baker Mayfield and the Browns will pick this defense apart. Looking at the rankings, it's easy to see:

    OFFENSIVE RANKINGS

    BROWNS 13
    JETS 29

    DEFENSIVE RANKINGS

    BROWNS 30 (With Greg Williams as their DC, LOL)
    JETS 25

    Overall, the Browns are simply much more talented. Their QB put up better numbers than Sam. This is also a primetime game where the Browns will want to showcase the great additions they made. The Browns also just beat the Jets last season. I think the Browns will win that game easily.

    Watch your wallet, pal; you already guaranteed a bunch of bets a couple of weeks ago.

    Nah. Only one bet. And that was for Avatar change. I will never bet anything monetary here. Also @statjeff22 is my Guru. I love him.

    Bottom line it's about Ws & Ls. As the saying goes winning cures everything.

    He has to win early & win big here or he won't be around for very long.

    With his personality if he doesn't win the media will eat him alive.

    He has to win right away.
    I think we are starting the season 2-0. Book it.

    You can run, but you cannot hide. And don't blame it on the family being away and the whiskey gods taking over!

    Lol.Yes I said Book It a few times but that doesn't mean I betted anything. My only bet is with our negative poster @NYJ1970 and that is towards avatar change.

    But I love you too sir. Whiskey isn't the answer. Beer is.

    Everybody needs something to believe in and I believe I'll test out your beer theory this evening.
