There is a lot of mixed feelings going into the new year for the New York Jets. There is a lot of optimism, and a lot of sides that don’t think the Jets have done real well getting ready. The question is, can the coach Ryan and the Jets rebound?
Team history says no.
Since the team changed it’s name to the Jets in 1963, only one time did they finish over .500, the year after finishing with an even record. In 2000, the Jets finished 9-7 after finishing 1999 with an 8-8 record.
Here is how it worked out every other time:
1972–7-7(14 game season) 1973–4-10
1978–8-8 1979–8-8 1980–4-12
Not a great history after finishing with a .500 record. Does it mean much? Probably not, but you know what they say about the fact that history repeats itself.
Time will tell.
