As the New York Jets get set to play preseason football, comedian Larry David shares his thoughts on the final standings of the team as well as his aspiration to be an offensive coordinator.
It’s that time of year again where everyone is excited for the return of football. Sure, it’s just preseason for now but in just a few weeks, the regular season will arrive and the New York Jets will be ready to continue the momentum they built upon from last year.
It won’t be easy as this time around, their schedule is tougher, veterans got a year older and a few new faces have been acquired to see if they can address key areas of opportunity across the team. Of course this enables everyone from writers, analysts and even celebrities to chime in their thoughts if the Jets can be victorious this upcoming season. For comedian Larry David on The Dan Patrick Show, here are his thoughts on not only how many wins the Jets will be over/under by, why quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick needs to shave but his reasoning as to why he could be an effective offensive coordinator:
Fitzpatrick might have shaved off his hair and mustache but the beard remains. Based on what David said above, no teams have to worry about him taking their offensive coordinator job as he’ll need about a year of on-the-job coaching and training.
It’s hard to imagine if any NFL team would really give David a shot to learn their craft but the most interesting thing he said was that he honestly believes that the Jets will be under 10 wins this upcoming season.

In the grand scheme of things, their brutal schedule is the real big reason why it’s not hard to imagine the Jets being nowhere near as successful this time around compared to last season.
In 2015, they had a relatively easy schedule yet failed to make an appearance in the NFL Playoffs with everything on the line in their season finale against an average Buffalo Bills team.
With a schedule in 2016 that sees them go up against the Cincinnati Bengals, Pittsburgh Steelers, Seattle Seahawks, Arizona Cardinals and don’t forget their twice-a-year match-ups with the New England Patriots, it could be quite the long season for the Jets.
Hopefully the Jets did enough this offseason to be prepared for the tough schedule ahead, otherwise it could be another season chalked up to sophomore blues of the current leadership regime heading into their second year together.
Overall, David simply chimed in the thoughts of many Jets fans who realistically know, this is a team that we’ll always root for but might be on the outside looking in this upcoming season. We’ll always believe as at the end of the day, this could be a season that truly tests this franchise if they can overcome some serious obstacles.
