The preseason is over, and the preparations for week one go into full swing. The roster will be down to 53 by 9 PM tonight.
As such, the coming days are the time where everyone starts to predict their team’s records for the year. Is your team primed to win 11 games? Is your team going to have to work hard for an 8-8 record. The talk has begun for the Jets as well. Many think that the Jets will have 8-9 wins. There have been a few double digit win predictions, but the majority have been that the Jets will be at around .500, with one being as low as 5-11.
The fact is, this is more difficult than usual when talking about the New York Jets. The reason? This season, more than any other in recent memory, the Jets are cloaked in secrecy. We haven’t seen enough to make the Jets record easy to handicap. People that call it right get a gold star, because this team is difficult to handicap.
