New York Jets 2023-24 NFL Season Recap

New York Jets NFL Season Recap

Sickening is the only way to describe the New York Jets 2023-24 NFL betting campaign. Bottom line, NFL bettors and fans of the franchise were robbed of what could’ve been a very special season had it not been turned on its head just four plays into the offense’s first possession of the year. When Aaron Rodgers hit the turf on the sack heard round the world, all the hype and intrigue that went the way of the other team from New York quickly went out the door. It meant first round draft bust Zach Wilson was back to being the QB1 of the franchise, and we’d all seen enough of that program to know we wouldn’t be taking in any of the reruns.

With Rodgers out of the mix, anyone that took early fliers on Garrett Wilson and Breece Hall in the full season prop betting market or fantasy were already seen crying in their beers; especially the former! While the latter ultimately went on to have a solid campaign churning out 1,585 scrimmage yards and nine overall touchdowns, Wilson had a rough time exceeding his preseason expectations with a battery of Wilson, Trevor Siemian, and Tim Boyle throwing him passes. When it was said and done, the second-year pass catcher failed to exceed his receiving yards (1,125) and touchdown props (7.5) in going for 1,042 yards and 3 TD, but he did topple his receptions prop (87.5) by coming up with 95 snags of the pigskin.

Regardless, the offense’s overall body of work was nothing if not ugly with it ranked No. 31 overall and No. 29 in scoring putting an average of 15.8 points on the board per game. Only the Colts, Chargers, Titans, Raiders, Patriots, and Seahawks possessed the ball less per game than that of New York whose league-worst third down percentage (25.96%) was a sight to behold. It was a crying shame considering how dominant the other side of the ball was which ultimately put the Jets in a position to match last year’s win output. While it wasn’t enough to topple the team’s 9.5-game win total with linemakers of the belief the Jets would challenge the Bills and Dolphins for division supremacy, it just went to show that the franchise remained a quarterback away from making some real noise.

Jeff Ulbrich’s defense once again proved to be one of the league’s best with Sauce Gardner and D.J. Reed locking opposing pass catchers down (No. 2), while Bryce Huff (10) and Jermaine Johnson (7.5) helped terrorize opposing quarterbacks en route to the unit averaging 2.8 sacks per game on average (No. 7). Good luck scoring on this defense in the red zone (No. 7) with the secondary conceding a grand total of 19 passing touchdowns (No. 7). The lone weakness on the unit did however come in stopping the run with it serving up 124 yards per game (No. 24) and 4.1 yards per carry (No. 11). That problem area will likely be rectified or at least improved this offseason.

Don’t be surprised to see Joe Douglass trade up from the No. 10 spot should the front office absolutely fall in love with one of the upper tier offensive linemen expected to go in the front end of the NFL Draft. After allowing 64 sacks and Rodgers coming back from an Achilles tear at the ripe old age of 40, it would behoove the organization to nip that extreme problem area in the bud. If in fact the team remains in the tenth spot, it’ll be hard not to add a pass catching specimen like Malik Nabers to the huddle knowing full well the current wide receiver corps surrounding Wilson simply just isn’t up to snuff. Allen Lazard was a no-show coming over from Green Bay with tight end Tyler Conklin the only other viable threat set to return.

A veteran backup QB should be high on the list as well. So too should as much run stopping help as possible. With a viable QB1 running the offense, the Jets are a bonafide contender to cash in on the Super Bowl betting odds. The fans know this. Upper management knows this. Hopefully the latter figures out a way to put as many checks and balances into place so as to prevent the offense from being the anchor that grounds the team like it has each of the last two seasons. I mean come on, this squad came three wins away from toppling its win total even with Zach Wilson leading the charge!

The New York Jets were founded as American Football League charter members. They were an embarrassment and were known as the Titans for their first three seasons. The Titans played before “fans dressed up as empty seats” at the old dilapidated Polo Grounds. But in 1963, the Titans were purchased by entertainment executive Sony Werblin, who rebranded them as the Jets.

Werblin’s show business background gave him an appreciation for star power. That led to Alabama quarterback Joe Namath getting the largest contract in history, at that time, in 1965. Namath and the Jets became the biggest show in town at Shea Stadium. New York made Super Bowl III and history when they beat the Baltimore Colts 16-3 as 18.5-point dogs. Namath guaranteed victory before the game and delivered.

To this day, that is the high point in the franchise's history. The last playoff appearance for the Jets was in 2010.
