The Jets have not made the playoffs since the 2010 season and linebacker CJ Mosley believes that the drought is one of the stumbling blocks that prevents the team from returning to the playoffs.
Mosley said this week that “the guys who were in the system who used to hear it” the Jets won’t be able to reach their targets and that’s something the team has to contend with as they head into this season. He believes that it is possible to overcome this obstacle this year, because the continuity in the coaching staff can lead to the fact that “everyone will be confident in what we are doing and will be able to play on the field” this season.
This confidence makes Mosley feel like the team has a real chance to break through for the first time in over a decade.
“I am really playoff wait or bust‘, Mosley said via AL.com’s Mark Inabinetta. “Obviously that’s my goal every year, but I think it’s a realistic goal for our entire team and our coaches.”
The competition for AFC playoff spots is expected to be fierce after the off-season, with several conference teams upping their talent. This could result in the Jets failing to reach Mosley’s goal, but steps can still be taken to make it a reality even if the final destination remains out of reach.
