As the New York Jets are 1-5 so far this season, it’s safe to say and easy to see, this team can forget about making the NFL Playoffs.
At 1-5 on the year, the New York Jets are on the outside looking in. They’ve lost four straight games and are playing such a pathetic style of football, it’s shocking that major changes haven’t happened as of yet.
From interceptions, missed tackles, dumb mistakes by coaches, and now racking up penalties faster than a New York minute, the Jets are continuing to be a dysfunctional franchise. They can’t convert red zone situations into touchdowns and their defense, one that was supposed to be one of the best in the NFL, can’t consistently bring pressure to opposing teams.
This was a team coming off a 10-6 year in 2015 with mostly everyone returning for a second year under the new leadership regime. Expectations were at an all-time high and despite knowing they had a brutal schedule in 2015, optimism was in the air that the Jets were going to be contenders again.
Just six weeks into the season, they’re anything but contenders. They’ve become an embarrassing team to watch and even more so in primetime where millions of football fans all across the globe can see just how bad this team really is.

Unfortunately, reality says this team is so far from making the NFL Playoffs that it’s truly sad to see just six weeks into the regular season.
To put it in perspective, only two teams in the history of the league actually made it to the playoffs after starting off at 1-5.
Needless to say, it isn’t happening with this team. They can’t score touchdowns and their defense is atrocious. Above all else, coaching is responsible for their early meltdown this season.
Playoff teams play complete football from start to finish. They’re competitive, hold each other accountable, have a franchise quarterback and are consistent. The Jets are far from anything resembling a team worthy of such praise.
Overall, the Jets can completely forget about the playoffs this season and focus on attempting to play competitive football. You know, the kind that has players mad for losing and a coaching staff not afraid to hold underperformers accountable.
