There’s one positive coming from the New York Jets missing out on the playoffs this year. That is, every player, coach and fan got to watch the AFC Championship game comfortably from their couch yesterday as Tom Brady got his butt kicked by Denver’s elite pass rush.

Any time the Patriots don’t win the Super Bowl, it’s a victory for Jets Nation. However, if the New York Jets want to break their five-year long streak of not making the playoffs and earn their chance to play for a Super Bowl, Todd Bowles and Mike Maccagnan are going to have to address some positions that need to be upgraded A.S.A.P.
