I know New York Jets fans have heard this before, playoff talk in the pre-season. Rex Ryan was famous for it, but even Todd Bowles is talking reckless now. In an interview with Andy Vasquez of North Jersey, Bowles said he believes making the playoffs for the Jets in 2017 is a realistic vision…..
“Our ultimate goal is to get to the Super Bowl,” Bowles said, via Andy Vasquez of NorthJersey. “Obviously, we have to take steps. We have a lot of guys we have to get acclimated chemistry-wise right away, but our goal is to win regardless of whether we have younger guys or older guys.
“Our goal is to win, so progress for me is being a lot better than last year and getting to the playoffs and getting to the Super Bowl. That’s the ultimate progress. There is progress and steps between that – obviously we want to win a lot more games than last year and we want to go to the playoffs, and that’s what we’re coaching and striving to do [is] to go to the playoffs, so that’s my goal.”
I am a diehard Buffalo Bills fan and even I feel my team will suck this year. The AFC East is controlled by the Patriots and Tom Brady. Unfortunately until he retires, AFC East teams should not be allowed to make assumptions about playoffs. Sorry Jets fans….
