GEICO SportsNite: Jets-Pats 00:01:48
Ralph Vacchiano reports from Florham Park to get thoughts from the Jets on their upcoming matchup against a seemingly mortal Patriots team.

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Remember when even some of the most diehard Jets fans were openly rooting for a full-tank, 0-16 season? And back then, even those who couldn't bring themselves to openly root against their team knew they'd be pleased if the Jets stumbled into the No. 1 overall pick.

Now they are 3-2, getting ready to face the hated New England Patriots, with first place in the AFC East on the line. The "tank" appears empty. The bandwagon is filling up.

But this is still a rebuilding Jets team facing the defending Super Bowl champions. Are the Jets really good enough to get this done?

Probably not. They're still probably much more likely to finish 5-11 than 11-5. Just don't tell them that. Todd Bowles has his young Jets believing.

And it sure sounds like they believe they have a chance.

"The confidence is there. The swagger is there," said Jets defensive end Leonard Williams. "I think that's what I like most: The swagger. We're jumping around with each other, we're having fun and we're playing fast."

"I'd say (our confidence) has risen a lot," added linebacker Darron Lee. "I mean it's been going up week by week, even with the 0-2 start."

That, of course, was three straight wins ago -- a remarkable achievement in itself for a team that some thought might not win three games all season. Still, a reality check is needed: These Jets are hardly a juggernaut. In fact, their unexpected three-game winning streak has exposed plenty of flaws.

The Jets were horribly sloppy in their 17-14 win in Cleveland on Sunday, and really only won because the rebuilding Browns are much worse. One week earlier, they barely beat an ugly-looking Jaguars team in overtime, committing key mistakes that nearly threw a fantastic performance by their running backs away.



What the Jets showed in those games is that against weaker teams they can have good moments, but they are still very much on that low level. They make too many mistakes in big situations. Their defense (25th in the NFL) isn't quite what it used to be. And their passing offense (25th in the NFL, 189.4 yards per game) is as bad as everyone thought.

They are not good enough to dethrone the beasts of the AFC East. And staring at a schedule that includes the Falcons, Bucs, Panthers, Chiefs, Broncos, and Saints over the final nine games, they'll be lucky to avoid double-digit losses.

That's the reality. But so is this: They are at home on Sunday, on equal footing record-wise with the Pats. If they can somehow squeeze this one win out, and be 4-2 heading into Miami next Sunday, it will change the entire tenor of this season. And if that happens, can anyone really rule anything -- including a playoff berth -- out?

After all, nobody thought even a game like this was possible.

"Everybody else thought that we wouldn't be here, but not the people inside the building," Williams said. "We always were going into every game playing hard and preparing the same way. That's something that we've been harping on this week - don't get too high for it and don't get to low for any other game. It's staying consistent, keep doing us and preparing the same way. Just keep doing us."

The Jets have worked overtime to insist that this game, against the defending champs, is just like any other game. Of course, deep down, they can't possibly believe that. But they do believe that the Patriots aren't invulnerable. They have the NFL's worst defense (giving up 447.2 yards per game), the NFL's worst pass defense, and they're giving up 28.4 points per game (third worst in the league).

The Patriots do have the NFL's best offense (419.4 yards) and passing offense (320.4) and rank third in scoring (29.6), but their Hall of Fame-bound quarterback has taken so many hits behind a questionable offensive line that he reportedly has a sprained (non-throwing) shoulder and needed to take practice off on Tuesday and Wednesday.

OK, it's probably not smart to bet against the Patriots figuring all that out and turning their season around -- especially against a Jets team that suddenly feels revived and is eager to test its mettle against the big kid on the block. And the reality remains that this game is likely a big reality check. It probably would be considered a small victory for the Jets just to make it competitive without being blown out.

That kind of thinking, though, is so two months ago, back when Sam Darnold Jets jerseys were all the rage. The Jets franchise may still have a lot of rebuilding to do, but this Jets team is sensing an opportunity that nobody expected them to have.

So hey, why not? Haven't stranger things happened? And if nothing else, isn't this much more fun than watching a team tank?

It's a good bet their fans think so, even the ones who were hoping for 0-16, which is why the Jets are expecting a raucous and wild scene at the Meadowlands on Sunday.

"I expect it to be a packed house," Lee said. "I expect it to be loud."

Pressure of Gase, Maccagnan 00:00:28
Former Jets quarterback Ray Lucas doesn't believe Adam Gase has proven he?s a QB 'whisperer' but all pressure shifts to GM Mike Maccagnan

SNY's Jets analyst Ray Lucas is a big fan of the team hiring defensive coordinator Gregg Williams. But what about new head coach Adam Gase?

Williams has the experience and track record necessary to deem him a solid replacment to Kacy Rodgers next season. But, given the Jets' priority to build the team around Sam Darnold, Lucas isn't too keen on Gase being the guy to develop him.

Lucas explained why on "Loud Mouths..."

The Cowboys are taking a shot on a failed second-rounder for the Jets in WR Devin Smith, signing him to a futures contract on Friday. 

Smith was drated 37th overall by Gang Green back in 2015 after having a superb collegiate career at Ohio State. However, the injury bug wasn't too friendly to the now 26-year-old. 

During his rookie season, Smith tore his ACL in Week 14 against the Titans, ending his year with only 115 yards and one touchdown. In 2016, Smith didn't see much playing time, playing in only four games after starting the year on the PUP list.

The Jets have shored up their new head coach and defensive coordinator, but an offensive coordinator still needs to be brought aboard. And on Friday, another potential candidate surfaced in Scott Linehan

The Cowboys let Linehan know they are going in a different direction, and the decision comes merely days after head coach Jason Garrett said he didn't believe any big changes were coming to his staff for next season. 

In an official statement, Garrett said it was mutual that both sides parted ways.

It's never too early to look at Super Bowl LIV odds.

According to BetOnline.ag, the Jets find themselves with 66/1 odds to win their first Lombardi Trophy since 1968. The Bills, Bengals, Broncos, Lions, Raiders, Bucs and Redskins all share the same odds. The Giants are in the middle of the pack, owning 40/1 odds.

After his introductory press conference, Jets new head coach Adam Gase has been the subject of numerous memes that have gained some popularity on social media.

So has Gase seen them? Not in the slightest.

"I don't have Twitter or Instagram. I don't read the Internet. I don't watch TV," Gase said on ESPN's "The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz." "All that stuff is irrelevant to me. It's poluttion of the brain. I really don't care. That's not how I operate. I'm here to do one thing and that's to help this organization win."

Jets dream offseason wishlist 00:00:18
SNY's New York Jets analysts pick each of their top three free agents they want the Jets to sign this offseason.

The Jets have their new head coach in place, and as Adam Gase puts together his staff, the next big step is what Gang Green will do this offseason to improve their 53-man roster. 

Jets GM Mike Maccagnan will have almost $100 million ($99,387,909 projected by OverTheCap.com) to work with in free agency, and to explore trades. 

So who should they go after? The SNY Jets crew gave their dream offseason wishlist for the Jets, as they look ahead to the free agent class and players that could be on the market:

Mock drafts are continuing to pour in with three and a half months to go before the NFL draft, and ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. has the Jets taking a defensive tackle.

Kiper has the Jets taking Alabama defensive tackle Quinnen Williams with the No. 3 pick, shoring up a defensive line under new defensive coordinator Gregg Williams.

Though Kiper has the Jets missing out on the highly-touted Nick Bosa (No. 1, Cardinals) and Josh Allen (No. 2, 49ers), it's tough to diminish Williams' ability.

The day the Cleveland Browns named Gregg Williams their interim head coach after firing Hue Jackson, their former defensive coordinator made one thing perfectly clear: The Browns were lucky to have him.

"Since I left Buffalo (in 2003), I had 11 letters to interview for head coaching jobs," Williams said. "Four of them, I didn't even have to interview. Just show up and sign the contract."

Analyzing Gregg Williams hire 00:00:57
SNY's Willie Colon believes new Jets defensive coordinator Gregg Williams will improve defense but his personality might bother Adam Gase.

The Jets officially named Gregg Williams their new defensive coordinator under head coach Adam Gase on Wednesday.

According to a report by NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Williams has agreed to a three-year deal with the team. Williams is flying to the New York-New Jersey area to sign the contract and finalize the deal on Wednesday.

Speaking about Williams for the first time on SiriusXM NFL Radio with Jim Miller and Pat Kirwan, Gase said Williams' defenses have always been a tough challenge, mainly due to their intensity level...

Todd Bowles is reportedly not the only Jets coach on Bruce Arians' radar to join him in Tampa Bay. 

Defensive coordinator Kacy Rodgers has officially joins the Buccaneers' staff as a defensive line coach, as the team announced numerous assistant hirings on Wednesday.

Rodgers, 49, spent the last four seasons as the Jets defensive coordinator under Bowles and also worked alongside the former Jets head coach in Miami and Dallas as a defensive line coach.

Ralph Vacchiano | Facebook | Twitter | ArchiveTodd Bowles came to the Jets with the reputation of being one of the best defensive minds in football. And in his first season, it was easy to see why. After that, it was all a steady roll downhill towards the Jets becoming one of the worst defenses in the league.

That's startling considering how they had invested in their defense. For eight straight years, before they took quarterback Sam Darnold, they had taken a defensive player in the first round of the draft. And they had spent big money on defenders in free agency like corners Trumaine Johnson and Morris Claiborne as well as linebacker Avery Williamson.

Yet they still had no pass rush and they wore down late in games. The Jets' defense was a remarkable group of underachievers.

Ralph Vacchiano | Facebook | Twitter | Archive: The Jets' long road from Todd Bowles to Adam Gase began in mid-November, long before either of them were fired from their old jobs. It started after a humiliating, 41-10 home loss by Bowles' Jets to the Buffalo Bills just before the bye week.

The week off gave the entire organization a chance to reassess itself. And the consensus inside the building became that the Jets needed a change.

What happened next was the beginning of what CEO Christopher Johnson later promised was an "extensive" search that over a two-month period included a look at Jim Harbaugh, a flirtation with Mike McCarthy, a push for Matt Rhule and a surprising inability to dismiss Todd Monken. When it was over, they ended up with a new head coach who wasn't on their original list because he was coaching a team in a playoff race with three weeks left in the regular season...

New Jets head coach Adam Gase touched on plenty of topics during his 15-minute press conference on Monday, but he omitted one key name.

The 40-year-old emphasized the importance of instructing a young quarterback like Sam Darnold, not being interested in total team control and, finally, filling out the remainder of his coaching staff. Gregg Williams is the defensive coordinator generating a buzz in New York and, though Gase did not specifically utter his name on Monday, reports say the Jets are close to bringing Williams in.

There is nothing new about the phrase "long-suffering Jets fan," because over the last 50 years there's no doubt they've all suffered enough. Right now, they're in the midst of a particularly difficult period. This is the longest stretch without a playoff berth for the Jets in almost 40 years.

That's why the biggest fear of those long-suffering fans who heard the Adam Gase press conference on Monday is that when it comes to this current playoff drought, eight years still may not be enough.

Adam Gase with Jeane Coakley 00:04:08
SNY's Jeane Coakley spoke with New York Jets head coach Adam Gase about Sam Darnold and the team after his introductory press conference.

There may be a reason why things between the Jets and defensive coordinator candidate Gregg Williams have reportedly slowed down. 

Jets new head coach Adam Gase told SNY's Jeane Coakley at his introductory press conference on Monday that one of the things he learned from his time as head coach of the Miami Dolphins was not to rush into hiring the staff. 

"What I mean by that is you don't want to start grabbing guys that might be available," he said. "You might have to take your time, interview guys and I think we have the right mindset right now and heading in the right direction and hopefully soon we'll start getting guys on board."

As the rest of the NFL searches for the "next Sean McVay," Rams running back C.J. Anderson says he has only had one other coach who compares to him: 

Adam Gase

Anderson, who rushed for 123 yards and two touchdowns in Los Angeles' 30-22 NFC Divisional win over the Cowboys on Saturday, has seen a revival of sorts of his career under McVay since joining the Rams on Dec. 19.

The Jets have agreed to a contract extension with special teams coach Brant Boyer, reports Adam Caplan of SiriusXM.

Caplan notes that multiple teams would have been interested in hirnig Boyer, whose contract had been set to expire after next season. The 47-year-old Boyer has been with the Jets since 2016 after a stint as the Colts' assistant special teams coach from 2012 to 2015.

As the Jets look to fill out their staff under new head coach Adam Gase, here are the names being considered.

Former Buccaneers offensive coordinator Todd Monken, who was a candidate to become head coach of the Jets, will join the Cleveland Browns in his same role, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapaport.

Monken's name was speculated among other potential Jets offensive coordinator candidates after they hired Adam Gase as head coach.

Instead, he will join new head coach Freddie Kitchens and new defensive coordinator Steve Wilks in Cleveland.

In a since-deleted tweet, Jets S Jamal Adams wasn't shy about one free agent he wanted the team to pursue this offseason.

"Yeah I like #55 Dee Ford off that end for us! Let's pay him what he wants!" Adams tweeted at 7:28 p.m. on Saturday as Ford and the Chiefs were crushing the Colts to advance to the AFC Championship Game.

The 27-year-old Ford had a tremendous game on Sunday, with one forced fumble, one sack, and four tackles.

The Jets found their 19th head coach in franchise history this week in Adam Gase, who they officially announced on Friday. But Gase's hiring came as a surprise to many, with former Packers head coach Mike McCarthy reportedly having his eyes only set on the Jets' job. 

McCarthy is the more accomplished head coach compared to Gase, and having developed Aaron Rodgers during his time in Green Bay, the marriage with QB Sam Darnold seemed like a match made in heaven. 

But, according to CBS Sports' Jason La Confora, the Jets and McCarthy didn't pan out due to staffing issues.

The 21-year-old quarterback told the Jets team website on Friday that he is "excited" about the new hire and added what he expects from the offense in the first season under Gase.

Is Adam Gase the right choice? 00:00:37
The Jets hired Adam Gase as their next head coach, former Jets QB Ray Lucas is left scratching his head.

Adam Gase is staying in the AFC East, as the Jets will hire him as the 19th head coach in franchise history, SNY's Ralph Vacchiano confirmed on Wednesday night. 

The move was reportedly made official as the Jets and Gase have agreed to a deal on Thursday, according to ESPN's Jeff Darlington. The terms of the deal have not yet surfaced.

After learning Baylor head coach Matt Rhule took himself out of the running, news broke minutes later that the former Dolphins head coach will replace Todd Bowles next season. Former Packers head coach Mike McCarthy, who is a more accomplished head coach than Gase, was also in the running and only had his eyes set on the Jets' job...
