The New York Jets finished 8-8, marking their third straight season with a record of .500 or worse. This 8-8, however, felt a lot better than the previous two seasons. The Jets did much better than (almost) anyone expected this season, including myself.
With their season in the books, now may be the best time to go back and see how hilariously wrong I was about the Jets.
Exceeding those expectations may have been exactly what saved head coach Rex Ryan this year. Certainly, being even moderately successful given the struggles of quarterback Geno Smith is something to be proud of. Smith showed some signs of life at the end, so while his rookie season was far from a success, there are some signs of hope for the road ahead.
For now, let's take a look back at my list of 10 predictions from the beginning of the season. And with the intent of maintaining credibility, we'll see where I was right and where I was painfully wrong.
