With their win today, the Cleveland Browns took their first playoff spot since 2002. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers took their first playoff spot since 2007 last week. This makes the Jets the longest post-season drought in the NFL, and their absence is twice that of the closest team.
The NFL’s two longest playoff droughts – Clevleand and Tampa – were triggered this year. That makes the 10-year Jets drought the longest in the NFL. And now 31 of the 32 teams have been in the playoffs at least once since 2015.
It takes a lot of bad football and bad decisions to get to this point.
Of course there is a silver lining. The successes of Tampa Bay, and Cleveland in particular, show that a drop in happiness can change the situation.
The Jets have a tremendous amount of design capital and wage caps. They also have a general manager who is widely recognized across the league for some of his early personnel mistakes.
Can the jets climb out of this chaos after a decade of false starts? It could depend on whether the property finally allows a footballer to run the team undisturbed.
