As the New York Jets prepare for another new season, here is Part 5 of a trip through franchise history.

As we prepare for the season opener, I wanted to set the season up by looking into the past and how the Jets got to where they currently are in 2016. Whether you are a long-time fan or a total Jets novice, this is a trip down memory lane you will enjoy and hopefully, learn something you didn’t know before.

For the longtime fan, you will remember the painful and few joyful memories, while the beginner will learn many different eras of Jets football and suddenly be able to reminisce with longtime fans about the past.

In Part 4 the Joe Walton era starts, which sees the Jets win double-digit games in consecutive seasons for the first time since 1968-69. However, the Jets inconsistency with very talented rosters leads to what many Jets fans view as underachievement.

In Part 5 we will look at the Bruce Coslet era and the promises that ended in missed opportunities during his tenure. Coslet came from the Cincinnati Bengals where he was the offensive coordinator and had a big part in their rise to prominence with Boomer Esiason at quarterback running the “attack” offense.

I have done this in podcast form, which is part of my “HIT THE MARK!” podcast that I manage.

The great thing about my podcast is besides being filled with historical information on sports as our motto “The FIRST in Sports Education” suggests, it was started to draw attention to the battle cancer survivors fight who suffer from the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation.

So without further ado, here is Part 5 of my tour through Jets history:
