After another missed postseason, the New York Jets should be preparing for the 2020 season by planning to address positional needs.
The New York Jets ended their 2019 campaign with a 7-9 record, missing the playoffs again for the ninth season in a row. What seemed like a complete dumpster fire of a season for the Jets after starting 1-7, was salvaged when the Jets were able to finish with a respectable 6-2 run to end the season.
While watching the Jets this season, there were a couple of recognizable bright spots. One bright spot is that fans got to see Gang Green’s young players (i.e. Sam Darnold, Jamal Adams, Marcus Maye, etc.) take steps forward in their development. Another good note is that the team showed grit by staying competitive in games throughout the entire season, no matter the obstacles. Whether it was Darnold having mononucleosis, putrid offensive play with a third-string quarterback, numerous injuries, or lockerroom turmoil, the New York Jets continued to stay focused.
However, regardless of the positives that we witnessed, there are still offensive and defensive positions that need to be addressed this offseason. Jets General Manager Joe Douglas is going to have a busy offseason to get this team on track if they are going to have a chance at making the playoffs in the future. So I thought it would be good to give some insight as to what five positions that should be addressed for the following season.
