The New York Jets can actually win the AFC East this year which is the first time that can be stated with confidence since Vinny Testaverde was slinging the rock to Wayne Cherbet on the all-time ‘We Stand For The Anthem’ squad. Shout out Doug Jolley.
But after Sam Darnold fell into their lap with the No. 3 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, this team finally has their franchise QB, a well-respected head coach and a defense with real impact players.
Here are 4 ways the New York Jets can win the AFC East:
1. Unleash Sam Darnold
Sam Darnold has looked impressive in the preseason. After I typed that, I realized how unimportant that is but many people believed that Darnold was the most NFL ready quarterback coming out of the draft and he’s proven that’s true thus far.
Darnold can already read defenses at the line of scrimmage and call audibles which is something that I’m not sure that Geno Smith ever figured out. He’s athletic enough to escape the pocket under pressure and he has a strong enough arm to make throws while he’s on the move.
Unleash Sam Darnold.
