Are Jets Super Bowl bound? One writer thinks so . . .

A writer for named Mike Clay wrote a story last week with the headline – “Why the Jets, Aaron Rodgers will win the Super Bowl.”

The first paragraph read: “It has been a minute, but the New York Jets are back. And by “back,” I mean legitimate Super Bowl contenders.”

We all know that the playoff dry spell is 13 straight years of missing the second season, tied with the Buffalo Sabres for the longest streak in pro sports, so saying they’re going win the Super Bowl this season is quite a statement. Some snarky types might say, “How about making the playoffs first?’

Clay finished his column with: “But things change quickly in the NFL, and this roster is built to compete for a title right now. If the Jets stay relatively healthy and Rodgers is something close to his old self, you can plan on hearing “J-E-T-S, JETS, JETS, JETS” chants echoing through New Orleans in February.”

Is he on to something? I have no idea. None of us do.

But if Rodgers stays healthy and with a somewhat soft schedule, you never know.

If Rodgers stays healthy, they should be favored in most games. The Jets are not facing a murder’s row of quarterbacks this year, and Rodgers is better than most of their opposing quarterbacks.

I’m not going to get into the Super Bowl prediction stuff, but there is certainly no excuse for them to miss the playoffs for the 14th straight year.
