With 2016 starting out unfriendly for Ryan Fitzpatrick and the New York Jets, we rank the most disappointing seasons in franchise history.We’re only 11 days into the month of October and it’s very conceivable that, at 1-4, the New York Jets season is already over.
Is this a certainty? No, of course not.
If you, for one second, believe the Jets season is already over with just four losses, you may need to start recording Dr. Phil on a regular basis. Hit the “record series” option on your remote and never miss an episode.
We were reminded of the unthinkable tournament runs transpiring right before our eyes as recently as last year in the form of the 1-5 Kansas City Chiefs. It can and has been done, many times.
Then again, cooler heads prevail most of the time.
As optimistic as you might be, the odds of a 1-4 team who also has the Arizona Cardinals, Baltimore Ravens, and New England Patriots twice in their future making the playoffs remain slim-to-none. The odds are so slim that we’ll spare you the actual depressing percentage number of teams sneaking into the tournament after a 1-4 beginning.
Therefore, the idea that the 2016 version of Gang Green will be one to add to the disappointing column — just one more to the collection of many.
