2019 will be a crucial year for the New York Jets as they’ll once again have a high draft pick, money to burn, and standards to exceed.

The 2019 New York Jets will hopefully have added a key draft pick to strengthen their offensive line, and it’s only expected of them that with all the improvements and changes they have been making over the past few years that it brings about a much more positive result. It’s obvious that the quarterback situation has struggled for years before the Jets got their guy in Sam Darnold.

Safety Jamal Adams came to win. He has been very outspoken on how losing sucks as that is the kind of player needed in the locker room. If his hatred of the Buffalo Bills is not enough to show you he came here to prove we won’t be taken as a joke, I don’t know what else to tell you.

Other Jets such as Leonard Williams, Robby Anderson, Jermaine Kearse, and even veteran quarterback Josh McCown are very vital to this team’s outcome in  2019. They will hopefully be the main core needed to turn this team around for the better.

Anderson is a top receiver that does not get nearly enough praise in the NFL because the Jets are taken as a joke by many, sadly. It is not that we don’t have guys that are truly skilled, because we have talent. Other teams just are stronger and this season was not one that was going to be great from the start.

We still have a ton of work to do and even 2019 will be tough, but the second year players and the third year players whom we really are and should be depending on are the ones facing the ultimate test.

The Jets need Darnold to stay healthy and improving the offensive line to protect the receivers and him is what the franchise must think about.

It’s very obvious that the New England Patriots are coming up short this year, as Tom Brady is slowing down due to age. The Buffalo Bills have Josh Allen, who personally has surprised me as a quarterback and those future matchups will be interesting.

The Miami Dolphins I’m not too worried about however, the division may get a little tighter once the Brady/New England era comes to an end. All of which will help our whole division, meaning the Jets have a huge shot at being the new kids in town that content from 2019 and beyond.

To expect the Jets to have a spectacular year in 2019 is also a bit much. However, this season is one that is a lesson for many Jets new and kind of new that will be important for next season when the expectations may be set a little higher.
