The New York Jets have a pretty soft schedule the rest of the season, which is why they'll be able to avoid a disastrous finish to the season. New York might not be a talented football team, but it has a chance to win a handful of games with the St. Louis Rams, Arizona Cardinals, Jacksonville Jaguars, Tennessee Titans, San Diego Chargers and Buffalo Bills remaining on the schedule.
This soft schedule could also have a negative effect on the team. First, it'll hide some of the overall issues facing this team. It's hard to truly evaluate a group when facing lesser talent. The Jets shouldn't fool themselves, they need a lot of changes.
The other problem is that the Jets will miss out on a better draft pick. If the Jets' schedule was tougher, they'd have a few more losses and be in position to add better talent through the draft.
