Don't understand a scenario where we're picking top 3 next year and not taking a QB.

Under that scenario we would unquestionably would.

I think this is more of a generic "here's where the usual suspects fall based on loose projections, aligned with my draft board."

Although this somehow has is missing the two surefire QBs by a pick, so it feels "right" in that sense.

Read the intro to that piece and it was literally "we just set the draft order by the vegas superbowl odds" - it's not a true projection of where teams will end up

I think it's hard to find more than 8 wins next year, but I'm hopeful for a minimum of 6.

I see 12 winnable games on there (we match up fine with everything but the Bills, Browns, Bengals, and Ravens, IMO), so 6 would be a disappointment.

I think all these way early mock drafts use the Vegas Superbowl odds to determine the order.  Let's hope they are way wrong.

I'm going to quote this again for truth 

everyone gets all butt hurt that these mocks have the Jets so high 

they are just current Vegas SB odds in reverse. 

Why are the Jets the third least likely team to win a SB? Take it up with the Hilton Superbook or whoever made up the line. That's not what these mock drafts are predicting.

Exactly. Only way we pick 3 is if Wilson just is awful. I think after this offseason we will be in the hunt for a wild card minimum.

Wilson was awful last year and we still didnt pick 3.  We are 10xs the roster we were last year.  This makes no sense.

In Zach Wilson's 2nd year, with a massively upgraded roster, we are going to be worse then we were last year???

It was maddening that NE would kick our ass twice a year when they had Brady.

Now they low key aren't even good and they're still whooping us x2.

Absolutely need to start beating NE and Miami. I want 3-3 or better in the division, frankly.

non conference road schedule is brutal. games at Denver and at Green Bay are also terrible matchups  - even the "easy" games like at Seattle is a 3000 mile road trip and DET always plays tough on thanksgiving.  

The Jets haven't beaten BUF, NE or MIA in three years so I'm not sure how they get to more than 6 wins while getting swept by the division. They have to at least split with MIA and NE to have any sort of chance at .500. 

6 wins would be about expected (5.5 is the current over under, last year's over under was 6 and they got 4) 

7-8 wins would be excellent 

a winning season (9+) Saleh should win coach of the year

Let's start with the first thing -- obviously getting swept by the division would be a disaster. If that happens we're picking top ten and who knows what the future holds for this regime. I think 3-3 should be the target for the division -- if we can't beat the Dolphins or Pats that's a major problem.

While you're right that Denver and Green Bay look like automatic Ls -- we have some very winnable home games. Lions, Jaguars, Bears all at home. Seahawks and Vikings on the road aren't exactly scary even if we'll be dogs.

AFC North matchups and division matchups make or break us. We go 3-3 vs. division and 2-2 vs. AFC North we're in business.

Yup.  We have to beat them both at home and take on of them on the road.  Assume we will lose two to Buffalo, but 3-3 in the Division opens things up for us;  2-4 or 1-5 and we are screwed.  Again.

If this scenario is real, as much as I love AR15, I'd take Will Anderson and hope for a trade market/FA QB.  Supposedly this is the most talented roster we've had in a decade, you cant waist it hoping for another rookie, if Zach doesnt work out.  This franchise has to start winning games and the only time this franchise has had a winning season in the last 12, is when they traded for a veteran QB.

the other problem with Will Anderson to NYJ is he's not really a fit for the 4-3 due to his size. He's 6'4" 243 like an Anthony Barr Sam on running downs and edge on pass downs, which is fine and all but it's not like he's an elite edge by 4-3 physical standards. He's kind of a perfect 3-4 OLB though.

Fair enough.  Veteran is certainly an option.  Might do both in that scenario.

The Bills are the Vegas Super Bowl favorites. They are a sick team on paper. If/when the Jets get swept by buffalo, that means they have to sweep either MIA or NEP to get to 3-3 in the division. 

the Jets will be a live underdog this year but every other team will see them as a winnable game.

it's tough to see how they go from 0 wins in 3 years to 3 wins in 1 year. Zach would have to be really good. 

1-2 division win would be a step in the right direction to be honest. If they can not get embarrassed at home by MIA and NEP that's at least a start 

i don't hold out much hope of them beating buffalo, unless Josh Allen gets injured or something crazy

Beating Green Bay in GB is reasonable?  Denver in Denver with Wilson?

Home 2022: Buffalo Bills, New England Patriots, Miami Dolphins, Baltimore Ravens, Cincinnati Bengals, Chicago Bears, Detroit Lions, and Jacksonville Jaguars.

Away 2022: Buffalo Bills, Miami Dolphins, New England Patriots, Cleveland Browns, Pittsburgh Steelers, Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings, Denver Broncos, and Seattle Seahawks.

8 wins in bold

I also think the Packers and depending on timing with Deshaun suspension Browns are beatable.
