Jets might end up the worst team in NFL history
NY Post ^ | October 19, 2020 | Brian Costello

The 2020 Jets are on pace to be arguably the worst team in NFL modern history.

Let that swirl around your head for a minute.

No, this is not hyperbole. The 0-6 Jets are heading toward finishing as one of the worst teams ever, maybe the worst team ever, barring a dramatic turnaround.

The Jets have 10 games left, so there is time. But is there hope? Of the Jets’ remaining games, seven are against teams that are currently .500 or better. Two of those games against teams under .500 are against the Patriots. Does anyone expect the Jets to beat the Patriots? They have three games against teams in first place.

I never thought it could get any worse than the 1 - 15 1996 season.

They are truly on a mission to break the record.

Didn’t the Browns go 0-16 in the 2017 season?

Jags are worse but the Jets have a tougher schedule.

Jacksonville was just blown out at home by the Lions. They are worst team in the league but they managed to win their first game. The Jets would win if they played the Jags now.

Jets could still win the NFC East if they were in that division.

The New York Jets need to hire Rich Kotite back.

Just because I no longer watch games, doesn’t mean I can’t take Schadenfreude where I can.

It was delicious seeing that Ezekiel Elliott fumbled twice last night. When the Cowboys rewarded that thug and re-signed him for $90 million, I vowed from that point that I would hope they’d lose every game.

About a dozen years ago, I was traveling through the NY/NJ area near the Tappan Zee bridge. The wife and I had dinner at a bar, and a Jets game was on. There were a few fans at the bar, and they were cheering and booing the game. It became apparent that they were rooting for the Jets to lose because they were hoping for the top draft picks. I guess this year will be like that, again.

Are the Jets taking a knee during the anthem? Do the Jets feature a huge BLM banner, billboard or have it painted on the field? Do any of the players have the name George Floyd or whoever taped to their helmet? If any of these is a “yes”...who gives a sh&&?

But I bet they have a roster full of “upside”.

What happens if the Rona shuts down the season? Would they still have the top draft pick?

Nope - you’ll never beat my Detroit Lions!

...29 years and counting since a playoff win and an 0-16 season.

If a crappy team isn't watched by anyone, is it really crappy? < /zen >
