2021 New York Jets Offseason

New York Jets Fans Finally Have A Reason For Optimism

I recently read that excitement is a great feeling of enthusiasm and eagerness but what are we Jets fans to do with this?

We’ve felt this way before; Rex Ryan riding into town taking names and vowing to kiss no one’s rings, 11-5 seasons, playoff births.

With all that rollercoaster kind of history, all falling short of the ultimate goal, what are we to feel? My Friend Chris has been a fan for forty plus years and admits that this feels different.

Recently I was allowed to do something I dreamt of but never thought possible now.

It was overwhelming at first but when I dove in I realized I deserved it, i’d put in the work and it was just a culmination of everything i’d done to get there.

There’s a similar feeling here within my Jet fandom. I think we should embrace Carl Lawson( first true edge rusher in ages), we should embrace Quinnen Williams, Joe Douglas( a real GM), Robert Salah( a superstar coach) and last but not least Zach Wilson.

Everything about Wilson spells star: precise control in his answers to the media, good looking young man with a healthy dose if confidence and a massive dash of mental horsepower( love that phrase).

As OTA’s go on, the daily highlights and awe by beat writers urge us to own this victory.

Yes, you heard me right, finally, we can embrace success and live with the fact that we have crossed and important threshold.

The Jets are finally going to be winners.

Embrace it.
