When it comes to the NY Jets, their odds to win Super Bowl LI are pretty slim. At least the true fans will always keep believing in Gang Green.

The Super Bowl LI odds are out and the Jets are in at 40-1.  There is currently a tie for the favorite spot right now between the Carolina Panthers, New England Patriots, Pittsburgh Steelers and Seattle Seahawks.  The Jets are one of five teams that sit at 40-1.

Take a look at the odds for every team heading into next season:

These are destined to change after the free agency period and the draft.  However, right now they seem to be appropriate, except for the Browns which is way too high.

The Jets are tied for 13th highest odds in the NFL.  I don’t necessarily agree with the number.  I might put them at 30-1, because they narrowly missed the NFL Playoffs, and three of the other four teams at 40-1 weren’t even close to making them.  With that said, I do agree with the fact that they are behind all 12 playoff teams from 2015.

It’s very early in the offseason process to judge who actually are in the right positions, though.

The Jets will have some holes to fill.  They will need to cut players and restructure some contracts (most likely D’Brickashaw Ferguson and Darrelle Revis).

Jets fans are excited for the 2016 season, and why wouldn’t they be.  They gave us a nice thrill ride in 2015 all the way to the end.  It was disappointing, but it was hardly equal to that of the Giants, Ravens and Bills.

The only similarities in the seasons was that they were all disappointing.  The disappointment varied.  The Ravens lost their QB and the season early.  The Giants had their late fourth quarter woes, which cost them the NFC East title, and the Bills proved that Rex Ryan doesn’t know how to be a head coach in the NFL.

The Jets were inconsistent offensively, especially when their defense put them in good position to score, but they were able to maintain consistency in the standings.  They were in the race all the way till their disaster in Buffalo.  They will need to make serious moves to become a higher favorite to win Super Bowl LI.
