    50 years later - remembering Super Bowl III

    posted by: Site Admin | 0 comments | Editorial

    Heading into Super Bowl LIII (53), New York Jets fans will be watching QB Tom Brady and the New England Patriots face off against the Los Angeles Rams for a chance to win the team's NFL record 6th Super Bowl. After several years of toiling around towards the bottom of the East Division, American Football Conference and National Football League, there's a growing urgency for Jets management to turn this franchise around.

    New York Jets - the Adam Gase era begins

    After spending a couple of weeks getting to know the press, it's time for new Jets Head Coach Adam Gase to get to work. The task at hand is to rebuild the New York Jets football team back into a playoff contender. Times have been lean, leaving Jets fans, ownership and even the gambling community wanting for something significantly better. Apparently, five wins or less over the last three years doesn't sit well with the people who remember better times.

    New York Jets Had Coach Adam Gase surely knows the future of his team revolves around 2nd year QB Sam Darnold. The young man is coming off a productive rookie season that saw him pass for over 2,800 yards and 17 TDs despite the fact the rest of the offense was anemic at best. After three straight seasons with at least 11 losses, Gase has the advantage of working with modest expectations as he figures out how to get the Jets back into the playoffs.

    The best online sportsbooks found over at Sportsbook Review, are already dealing odds on next season’s Super Bowl winner. Despite the fact that this season's Super Sunday is still in front of us, the oddsmakers have already tagged the Jets at 100-1 to take home the Lombardi Trophy next season. But take heart Gang Green, the Dolphins are mired in the muck at 300-1 and even that doesn't seem generous enough to burn a few bucks their way. This year's Final Four, the Patriots, Rams, Chiefs, and Chargers have odds at 7-1, 7-1, 8-1, and 8-1 respectively. It's hard to fathom someone thinking that now is the right time to wager on anything to do with next season before the draft, free agent acquisitions, training camp, and the inevitable injuries suffered during those camps. But even if you throw a dart blindfolded, sometimes it hits the bullseye.

    Patriots Super Bowl destiny tied to Tuscaloosa?

    In the old days, before the Patriots dominated the Super Bowl, the rule of thumb was that if your favorite team hails from the AFC then you would be rooting for the AFC entry in the Super Bowl and vice versa for the NFC. But that rule has gotten a bit murky, particularly for Jets' fans who are sick and tired of New England's stranglehold on the AFC East and the Tom Brady Invitational that the AFC Championship game has come to resemble. Therefore, a win by the LA Rams would be a welcome reprieve from the ubiquitous New England Patriots and maybe, just maybe, this is the end of Belichick's reign of terror over the conference, and dare we say, even the division! If you check out any online sportsbook you will see that the Patriots are a slight favorite over the Rams but perhaps that’s just one more reason to like LA.

    Jets rookies paid dividends in '18

    It appears as though the Jets shattered their tired old mold from years of less than stellar drafts and finally found a blueprint that worked last April. Although Sam Darnold is not a Rookie of the Year contender, he did flash more than a glimpse of unique potential under center for New York this season. In his last four games, after returning to the gridiron from a foot injury, he posted the best Total QBR at 80.7 in the NFL. There is little doubt that Darnold, with a year under his belt, will not endure the early season growing pains of his rookie campaign and will thrive, particularly if he is to get better protection up front and more weapons at his disposal.

    Fanbase goes WTF as Jets hire Adam Gase

    Well, Jets fans, this team sure knows how to make us even more miserable than we already are. Having plenty of potential head coaching candidates to choose from, including a Super Bowl winning coach, they settled on the only one with a losing record. Adam Gase, who was fired by the Dolphins after missing the playoffs two seasons in a row, will be the next Jets head coach. He has a 23-25 head coaching record, with 5 of those wins coming against Todd Bowles' Jets. Apparently, the Jonhnson brothers were so impressed with Gase's 5-1 record against the Jets that they hired him over the likes of Mike McCarthy.

    With no fewer than four NFL teams looking for a new head coach, the New York Jets are wasting no time looking for Todd Bowles' replacement. What the team has to offer an incoming coach is the opportunity to rebuild this football team in the image of what the coach wants. The starting point for the rebuild will be franchise rookie QB Sam Darnold, who finished his first NFL season with 2,865 yards passing and 17 TDs over just 13 games. Beyond Darnold, it's not clear if anyone else's job is safe.

    With a record of 4-12, the New York Jets will head into the offseason with a lot of wounds to lick and decisions to be made. It's not the kind of season the Jets fan base expected, but it happened and it's time to start looking towards the future with the future being the 2019 season.

    By all accounts Todd Bowles is a good coach and an even better man, which, in the big picture means a helluva lot more than the wins and losses on his record. But after four seasons at the helm of the New York Jets and a 24-40 record, a change had to be made and CEO Christopher Johnson was the one to do it. He called it the hardest thing he's had to do in the two years that he’s been the acting owner of the club. Believe it or not, some of the most trusted and respected online sportsbooks in the industry like YouWager were hanging odds on which head coaches would get the axe. Bowles was even money.
