2015 New York Jets Season Predictions
2014 was not one to remember for the New York Jets. After a 4-12 season that featured many quarterback changes, turnovers, and booing fans, the Jets decided to clean house and removed Rex Ryan and John Idzik from their duties. With that, the Jets brought in GM Mike Maccagnan and head coach Todd Bowels.

The additions of Maccagnan and Bowels have the fans excited as the two are believed to be what this organization needed to turn things around and compete in the AFC East.
The Jets have made the necessary moves to add a lot of depth and give the new front office duo a lot of options. While things won’t be easy for the Jets to compete in the AFC East, they have the possibility to make a splash and a statement if they can get out of the gates early in the season.
Quarterback wise the Jets have options. Geno Smith has been the go to guy and comes into the preseason as a bit of a favorite to get the job. However, with Todd Bowels now calling the shots, Smith will have to impress during camp and the preseason games to keep his job. Behind him, the Jets have depth.
They have Ryan Fitzpatrick and rookie Bryce Petty in the reigns.
Fitzpatrick will be the likely candidate to either jump Smith on the depth chart of replace him if things go wrong, but Petty has a bright future and could be what the Jets look for down the road. He’ll have a solid veteran leadership to follow.
Like their quarterback position, the Jets have maybe not an elite RB, but they have depth and options to go with. Stevan Ridley, Zac Stacy, and Chris Ivory offer Bowels and his staff a lot of options and interesting packages they can run. Chris Ivory will likely lead the way for the core to start, but 3rd down situations could give way to Stacy or Ridley, who specialized in that role with the Patriots.
The receiving core is a very solid one and could be up there with the best in the AFC. Brandon Marshall will be the clear cut #1 target as he’s been an absolute beast in his NFL career. Behind him he’l have Eric Decker and rookie Devin Smith who offer a variety of things.
Decker is a tough, hard nosed guy who will be vital in 3rd down situations. Smith has the speed to bust out and break free in the open field.
The defense has been the backbone of this team in the past years. Last season they ranked 6th overall and and 5th against the rush.
They bring back Revis and Cromartie in the secondary that will prove to be one of the best duos.
2015 New York Jets Season Prediction:
The Jets have a solid receiving core that is arguably one of the best in the AFC.
However, do they have a QB that can get them the ball? That will be the biggest key and it has been in the past for the Jets.
They have always lacked an offensive firepower from the QB position. Smith will likely be the starter, but be on a very short leash during the season.
New York will likely still be in the cellar of the AFC East, but they aren’t far away. If a couple things click and Smith figures himself out, they could be in for a breakout season.
That being said, they’re still a year, an improved Jets team finishes with 6 or 7 wins this year.
