    Jets finish last in ESPN Future Power Rankings

    http://insider.espn.go.com/nfl/story...ng-2016-season

    "ESPN Insider's NFL Future Power Rankings are an attempt by our expert analysts to measure the confidence they have in each franchise as it projects three seasons ahead."

    Roster: To resurrect the franchise, the Jets are going to need to draft well and spend smarter than what occurred under the previous regime. There's talent on both the offensive line with Nick Mangold and D'Brickashaw Ferguson protecting whoever takes the snaps and Muhammad Wilkerson anchoring a promising defensive front seven. The Jets are in desperate need of offensive skill players. -- Yates

    Quarterback: Adding Geno Smith in the draft gives the Jets a shot for the long term. And it gives them badly needed direction at the position. Those are things the Jets did not have one year ago, when they were oddly acquiring Tebow with no apparent vision for the future. Smith figures to face some upheaval during his first couple seasons, particularly if there's a coaching change following the 2013 campaign. Lots will happen to this roster in the next couple seasons. Mark Sanchez remains on the roster in name only. It's a very long shot to think he'll revive his career with the Jets and factor in 2016. -- Sando

    Draft: I gave the Jets a very high grade for their 2013 draft, but that marks a change from a stretch where they simply didn't extract enough value. It wasn't a case of bad picks at the top, but there just wasn't enough depth created with later picks. If the 2013 draft is an omen of things to come, this team is headed in the right direction. And anybody who says this class will be defined by Smith misses the point. It doesn't have to be because the Jets used a second-rounder on him, and are in no way financially tied to him if he doesn't pan out. It was a good call, and hopefully we'll see more of the same. -- Kiper

    Front office: New GM John Idzik has no track record. New offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg has been a proponent of the passing game. New defensive coordinator (and head coach) Rex Ryan is among the best in football. That said, questions abound. Will the addition of 2013 draftees Dee Milliner and Sheldon Richardson help a defense that, believe it or not, was playing well despite the loss of Darrelle Revis last season? This is a young group. With Rex at the helm it should continue to grow. On the other side of the ball though ...

    This next sentence is echoes a familiar refrain, but who is the quarterback? Will the wide receiving corps be serviceable? Will the offensive line improve from last year's disastrous performance? And will new kicking game coordinator Ben Kotwica be able to sustain the magic performed by now-retired Mike Westhoff? We will know the answers by season's end in 2013 and probably not before. -- Polian

    Coaching: I know what it's like to coach in New York. And Rex knows that he's on thin ice. He'll hand the offense over to Mornhinweg, but he needs to make a decision on a QB -- and soon. Rex also needs to fix this defense. He has some young playmakers and needs to put them in a position to succeed. He knows that if he doesn't win this year, he might be gone. -- Edwards

    Yeah because these clowns get the weekly rankings so right they should stretch it out for 3 years.

    What a group of morons

    This incessant Jet bashing is getting a little much at this point.

    This is a team that has been quite good over the past decade.

    Been to two AFC Championships games in the past four years

    One losing season in the past four years

    They've had a top five defense for the past four years.

    I'm not saying they're a top 10 organization but to claim they are on the worst trajectory of any team in the NFL?

    Just seems obsessive...

    I think it's based on ESPN's strongly held opinion that the Jets were "mean to Tebow" while he was there

    So you missed the whole point, which is that this is a 3 year down the road ranking?

    We had about the worst offense I've ever seen last season.....lost our best defensive player (Revis) and our top 2 offensive players (Holmes and Keller) for the season and still finished at 6-10. Not good at all but certainly not the worst of the bunch

    We made a number of smart moves this offseason and added a lot of talent in the draft but we will suddenly be the worst team in the NFL?

    OK.

    It's the truth? the Jets project out as the worst team in the league in three years?

    Just drafted the league consensus #1 QB
    Just drafted the league consensus #1 CB
    Just drafted one of the top d-linemen in the draft
    Have two emerging stars on the D-line
    Will have $40mm in cap space after this year.

    While yes a lot of things can go wrong, but the projections are based upon nothing substantive.

    I don't subscribe to the "media hates the Jets" theory, but this thread is why people who say that have some merit. I get that the Jets suck right now. They are not a top team. But how did they go from the 9th worst team in the league (without Revis) to the absolute worst in this offseason (still without Revis)?

    The Lions, Eagles and Chiefs might make some serious strides this year, for multiple reasons. But what did any of the other bottom-feeders do that automatically propels them ahead of the Jets?

    Jacksonville still might not have MJD to start the season. But somehow they're automatically out of the cellar?

    Exactly.....

    Vegas has wins totals you can bet on and the line for the Browns, Cardinals, Jacksonville, and the Raiders are lower than us......Buffalo and Tennessee are tied with us at 6.5 wins

    Case closed really.......The money says it all, not some reporter(s) with an agenda

    Yeah I know Vegas isn't always right, but for a projection it basically says we should be ranked around 26-28 and not 32 going into the season

    This is still the Jets who can't stop the run, can't stop 3rd and anything the same team that does not have a starting QB, or one that's worth anything. This is the same team with zero playmakers on the O. This team is and will be a joke for some time. $40 million in cap space means di(k if you don't have a qb or a head coach. Ryan's not one.

    it's to bad we all know the defense is good but when your offense can not score points then what good is a shut down defense
