The New York Jets have certainly had an interesting offseason.
They started things out with a bang by signing running back Le’Veon Bell, quite arguably the most prized free agent on the market. The Jets then nabbed wide receiver Jamison Crowder and linebacker C.J. Mosley, further bolstering their roster on both sides of the ball.
New York would then go on to make a widely-renowned draft pick by selecting Alabama defensive lineman Quinnen Williams in the first round.
As a result of the Jets’ busy offseason, some felt that Gang Green would be a sleeper playoff contender going into 2019.
But then, the Jets oddly fired general manager Mike Maccagnan, a strange decision to make after letting him handle free agency and the draft. Maccagnan’s dismissal came as the result of a power struggle with new head coach Adam Gase, who apparently wanted no part of signing Bell.
With Maccagnan now gone, the Jets’ roster has remained the same, but there is a general sense of “same old Jets.”
However, Gase feels that as long as New York wins, the fans won’t care about all of the drama.
“I think our fans care if we win or lose,” Gase said, according to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk. “If we win games, nobody’s going to remember this, I know that. Our job’s to win. Our job is to win. That’s it.”
While Gase may be right, there is certainly a whole lot of pressure on him to perform in 2019, as New York has not made the playoffs since the 2010-11 campaign.
