As the New York Jets prepare for their season opener on Monday Night Football, head coach Todd Bowles continues to stick with the same expectations for his team.
The regular season is finally here for the New York Jets as they begin their campaign under the primetime lights of Monday Night Football. They’ll be hitting the road for a matchup against the Detroit Lions with hopes of leaving the Motor City victorious.
Head coach Todd Bowles knows that the time is now to show progress in that the Jets are heading in the right direction. They’ve had a few years worth of drafts, good free agents acquired, and a young foundation that is hungry to go the distance.
When speaking to the media this week during practice, Bowles was asked on what his expectations were for the team this upcoming season. As always, Bowles kept the same message since day one when he became the next head coach of the Jets.

Courtesy of the Media Relations Department of the Jets, here is what Bowles said:
Again, our goal is take one game at a time and get to the playoffs and win the Super Bowl, and that’s our expectation. That’s what it was last year. Going into Week One is no different for us.
Could the Jets be headed towards a playoff berth this upcoming season? Your guess is as good as mine but in the grand scheme of things, it’s always best for any team to do exactly what Bowles spoke about. It’s all about taking the regular season one week at a time and see where everything falls into place come season’s end.
The Jets are undoubtedly a team on the rise and have a lot of players that have the talent to produce big numbers. It’s all about Bowles keeping everyone in check and focusing on the little things to turn this team into a competitive one.
The biggest sign of whether or not this team is ready to make some serious noise comes down to discipline. Will the unnecessary penalties stop? Can players eliminate mistakes and execute? Can Bowles make the right in-game adjustments to ensure the Jets finish football games with a win?
It all comes down to that but for now, everyone is undefeated and the games actually count for the wins and losses column starting now. It’s all about putting these expectations on the forefront of anything and everything involving the Jets and simply chipping away one game at a time.
