Jets need to be a playoff contender in 2018

The Jets’ bar needs to be raised exponentially.

Christopher Johnson said at the end of the season, “I told you at the beginning of the season that that was going to be based on progress and I did see that progress. It might not have shown up on the final scores. But within the locker room, on the practice field, out during the games, I did see progress.”

2018 can’t be about “progress” for the Jets, it has to be about making the playoffs.

“Like I said, it’s more than the score at the end of the game, which believe me, I wanted to win a lot more of those games,” Johnson said after the season. “But I did see a lot of progress within that young core, especially. It has really come together with Todd’s leadership and I was really, really impressed with how this young team looks.”

The young core is okay, but the Jets should be careful about overrating it. They need a lot more guys like Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye. They need more impact players.

The Jets have missed the playoffs seven straight seasons.

No medals for trying.

“Progress” should mean squat in 2018. The Jets need to make the playoffs.
