New York Jets head coach Todd Bowles reminisced about the 2017 season. Plus we take a look at who the Jets will play in 2018. 

Sadly, the New York Jets season has come to an end. It’s hard to believe the entire season is already wrapped up. But with that comes hope for the future.

Head coach Todd Bowles rarely likes to look at the big picture, well at least publicly. Now that the season is over, he started to reminisce about what this team accomplished in 2017:

Here are the top quotes from the last post-game press conference of the season.

  • Head coach Todd Bowles praised the “fight and the effort from his team in 2017.”

This was embarrassing and frustrating. Bowles was down three scores, kicked a field goal, and was still down three scores. I’m just hoping that since it really didn’t matter this deep in the season, that was the reasoning for the boneheaded decision. But re-reading that line makes that mentality seem pretty naive.

Look Ahead To 2018:

With the Jets finishing in the last place in the AFC East, they will play the last place schedule, which is good news. That means another matchup with the Cleveland Browns. This is the fourth straight year the Jets will play the Browns on the schedule.

Some more analysis:

  • Five out of the 13 teams the Jets play next season are in the playoffs in 2017.
  • Outside of the division, the Jets will only play one game against a team in the playoffs at home (Minnesota Vikings).
  • While on the road, the Jets will have a double-dip against the AFC South (Jacksonville Jaguars and Tennessee Titans, both playoff teams).

Although to take an extreme stance on how the Jets will do in early January would be foolish. All the opponents on the Jets schedule, including gang green, will be very different by the start of September.
