The 2019 Super Bowl is just a few months away. Do New York Jets fans have reason for hope?
If you look through the history of NFL, one trend that sticks out. Teams are usually as good as their starting quarterback. While Bridgewater will have to answer the critics in terms of rehabbing from his horrific knee injury, the sky is the limit for the Jets if they are able to put together a winning season with Teddy Bridgewater as starting quarterback.
Solid 2018 Draft Choices
The Jets did very well in the 2018 NFL draft. If Teddy Bridgewater doesn’t pan out as the quarterback for the New York Jets, rookie Sam Darnold will likely be tapped for the starting role. Many critics say that Darnold is a once in a generation quarterback with limitless potential.
Sam Darnold was picked 3rd overall by the Jets and while rookie quarterbacks may not have the poise to win the Super Bowl historically, Sam Darnold might have what it takes to exceed the hype and deliver some wins for the Jets if he is indeed named the starting quarterback this season.
With so much potential at the starting quarterback spot for the Jets, it might make sense to throw a couple dollars at the Jets just in case they exceed expectations and find themselves playing for the Lombardi trophy in 2019.
