Everyone Hates Cris, well that was a TV show minus the spelling, but Cris Collinsworth is a person that is pretty hated in the sports industry. I don’t know why many hate him so much, but he made an interesting comment the other day and I wanted to see what you all think.
He said one team he could see have a turnaround season like the Bengals did last year, is the New York Jets. The Jets had an incredible draft in 2022, and Zach Wilson is going into his second year. He finally has some weapons around him and the defense has improved.
Collinsworth mentioned on Thursday’s episode of “The Cris Collinsworth Podcast” that the New York Jets are a team that could find themselves contending for a Super Bowl in 2022 after going 4-13 a year ago.
“If there’s a team out there that could make a jump this year and surprise everybody…the Jets, maybe they’re that team this year,” Collinsworth said.
Collinsworthy maybe onto something here. If Wilson can have a great season, and Sauce Gardner and Jermaine Johnson can step up on defense it could be a long year. The AFC East is a pretty stacked division, and all the teams could be one another. The Jets are no longer the push over team, they have done a great job at turning things around.
The Super Bowl maybe a little rich but things happen. If I told you the Bengals would be in the Super Bowl last year you wouldn’t have believed that either.
