6 Reasons Why The Jets Will Win The Super Bowl

By Jim Fields, Published on August 13, 2014

 

jets.jpgFor a New York Jets fan the NFL preseason is when Hope Floats. Because once the season starts, Reality Bites. But this year promises to be different. Every summer I pore over the NYJ roster and analyze each game on the schedule. Inevitably I convince myself that the Jets will be either a 10-6 playoff team or a 6-10 bust. (To hope for more than 10 wins is Quixotic, to predict more than 10 losses is masochistic.)

This year they may well go 10-6 but I believe the Jets will make it to the Super Bowl. Here’s why I believe that we will win:

  1. I believe in psychic moments: The only question mark in the Jets’ defense is the backfield. Last week my son Jack and I were discussing how Jets cornerback Dee Milliner needs to step it up after a rocky first season in which he was benched multiple times yet won AFC Defensive Player of the Week and NFL Defensive Rookie of the Month. The next day, in a raffle at an Els for Autism charity event, I won an autographed Dee Milliner jersey. Good omen!
  1. I believe in Jason Babin: The guy has 62.5 career sacks! OK, so he has played for seven teams in ten years after being a first round pick in 2004. OK, so he was cut this year by the Jaguars, one of the worst teams in the league. Sounds like the perfect Jet to me. But with Mo Wilkerson and Sheldon Richardson tying up the opponent’s O-line, I can see Babin and LB Calvin Pace racing each other to the QB and driving him into the ground like the golden stake that completed the transcontinental railroad.
  1. I believe in Chris Johnson: Redemption is a powerful motivator. The Jets offensive line is one of the best at opening holes for RBs. How else do you think Chris Ivory ran for more than 800 yards and Bilal Powell rushed for almost 700 yards last season? Bilal who? Plus, CJ2K is a very cool nickname. I would be happy if CJ1K shows up this year.
  1. I believe in the Jets’ legion of no-name receivers: Eric Decker needs to prove that he can win without Peyton. Steven Hill needs to prove that he is more Ali (tall, fast, tough) than Duran (“Manos de Piedra”). Otherwise Jet GM John Idzik will yell “No mas” and throw in the towel on Hill. Relieved of the need to be the featured receiver, Jeremy Kerley can now channel his inner Wayne Chrebet and get open from the slot. Out of the slew of receivers drafted this year (Jace Amaro, Jalen Saunders, Shaq Evans, Quincy Enunwa) somebody has to be good. Who knows, maybe David Nelson and Jacoby Ford will finally break out this year.
  1. I believe in the cough drop quarterbacks—Smith and Vick: They are mirror images of each other and if each can stay healthy for eight games (hopefully not the same eight games), Jet fans will be treated to offensive exploits not seen since the days of Kenny O’Brien, Freeman NcNeil, and Wesley Walker. Both can run, both can throw deep, and both turn the ball over. Two out of three ain’t bad.
  1. I believe in Jets head coach Rex Ryan: His guys love him and play hard for him. He is fun to watch and gives great interviews. His defense could be the best in the AFC this year—good enough to carry the offense to the Super Bowl. But I admit he sometimes misses the obvious play: As soon as the Jets cut Mark Sanchez, Rex should have insisted that Geno Smith switch from wearing his #7 jersey to Sanchez’s #6. Then Rex’s tattoo of his wife wearing nothing but a #6 Jets jersey would be relevant again; instead it’s a sad reminder of how quickly the high hopes of Sanchez’s first two seasons faded into memories of the butt fumble in his last. But that’s nothing a Super Bowl win can’t cure…

I believed in the US Men's National Team.  I don't believe in the 2014 Jets.  But the future is bright.

This is the Jets year guys, it has nothing to do with talent or the lack thereof, it's all about timing and that fickle ho: Lady Luck. This is going to be one of those years that some important cogs in our biggest obstacles go down, either by injury or suspension and at the same time the Jets get some lucky Franco Harris type bounces to help them win the crucial games. Call it premonition, call it a feeling, call it madness, call me a kook-all I know is this is the year of the Jets-we are going to win the Super Bowl and will shock the world.

They had an auto accident with Rivers, Flacco  and Rothelisberger last night. And Dalton  was hit by the car.

It's fascinating to me the Giants have better odds to win the SB than the Jets, even though the Giants have more question marks and have to play in a conference with Rodgers and Brees, the Eagles, Bears, and the NFC West. [/bitter]

I get to hang with my Jet buddies and drink and watch football- if you just want to be 24 hours miserable that is your pregorative.

I enjoy watching the 6th youngest team in the NFL develop even if I have no realistic expectations we're a contender.

Where I'm struggling.... What if a fan of another team also won a raffle recently? And what if that raffle prize was also an autographed jersey of a player that thier team needs to step up? How do we unravel this paradox?

I was talking to this guy I just met, John Titor http://www.johntitor.com/ and he shocked and surprised me because my immediate response was what 80 and Bugg wrote above but he said no, it wasn't any accidents but what it was (will be?) are sort of what happens in HBO's The Leftovers: a possible alien abduction on a mass scale. Titor told me that the aliens couldn't penetrate the thick polluted late summer air  emanating near the Pulaski Skyway so the Jets and Giant were left untouched. Except of course for that d-line coach with the weird skin disorder-he is one of the alien leaders.

Great post - I love reading optimistic analysis; it makes me look forward even more to the coming season. Then the season actually starts and reality sinks in.

That was 2010, but the Jets forgot to show up for one of the games, and to get lucky, and have fate on your side you have to at least show up!
