Sunday night was a terrible feeling for most Jets fans. They defeated the Los Angeles Rams 23-20, and by doing so, handed the #1 overall pick and Trevor Lawrence to the Jacksonville Jaguars. It was a tough pill to swallow. Since then, I somehow have been filled with optimism. The 2020 season was terrible. It will likely go down as the worst season we have ever had to experience as fans of this Green and White team. I mean the thread title though, because the future looks really good. First of all, Adam Gase will be gone in 12 days. That will be a wonderful feeling to rid ourselves of this Head Coach who has done nothing but hold back the franchise and the players. After that, Joe Douglas and the owners will start their search for a new Head Coach, who will undoubtedly be a huge upgrade over Adam Gase and Todd Bowles combined, because it is hard to do worse. Once he is chosen, the Jets will begin to make plans for the off-season. They have plenty of cap space to make a couple Free Agent splashes, which should excite the fan base. Then the NFL Draft will be here. The Jets have 5 picks in the Top 90 and will likely have the #2 overall pick. Losing out on Trevor Lawrence is unfortunate, but the Jets will have plenty of options like QB's Zach Wilson or Justin Fields. The combine and private workouts will likely determine the direction they go. They also will have to decide what to do with Sam Darnold. They could even keep him and use all 5 picks to build around him. We don't know. They have some nice pieces on the roster already with Mecki Becton, Quinnen Williams, Denzel Mims, Jamison Crowder, CJ Mosley, Marcus Maye (if he is re-signed and he should be), Connor McGovern, Braden Mann and many other young talents that a new Head Coach may be able to get more out of than Gase did. If you think of it that way, the 2021 New York Jets will be an exciting team and it will probably be the most fun season we will have as fans since 2015. Joe Douglas has a lot of big decisions to make in the upcoming months, but I think the Jets are headed in the right direction. It felt really dark on Sunday night, but today I am starting to see the light again.
