Mike Francesa foresees big things for the 2024 New York Jets

A legendary New York sports radio host has high expectations for the New York Jets.

On his self-titled podcast, Mike Francesa said he sees a path for the Jets to make it to the Super Bowl in 2024.

“If everything fell into place, the Jets could go to the Super Bowl this year. Yes, I think they could be that formidable in the playoffs if everything falls into place.”

The former WFAN host said he enjoyed some of the team’s moves, such as signing Tyron Smith and drafting Olu Fashanu.

However, he also said that head coach Robert Saleh “has not shown anybody what it means to be a head coach in this league.” Francesa added that this year should be the last one for Saleh to prove that fact.

In general, Francesa is not wrong with his thought process.

If all of the pieces for the Jets stay healthy, they can potentially be a dangerous team in the AFC. They have a stout defense that can shut down any opponent. Their offense, adding offensive line and wide receiver improvements, looks to be the team’s most productive unit in years.

Health is the most significant factor, though. Many players, such as Aaron Rodgers and Tyron Smith, are either recovering from injuries or have not played a full season for an extended period.

Saleh also has to prove he can lead New York to victories. Rodgers’s return will help, but Saleh has faltered in the few high-leverage games the Jets have played during his tenure.

It remains to be seen if Francesa will ultimately be proven right with his prediction, but at the very least, the Jets have the talent and potential to make it happen.

Saleh has had the worst QB play in the league every season since he arrived, and if it were coaches for others teams it would be talked about, but since it’s Saleh and the Jets, it doesn’t matter.

Now, I agree that Saleh still has things to prove, but when he got here the Jets D was HISTORICLLY bad, so he should get some credit for the current unit. He’s also developed some nice players, yes, all on D (except Hall and Garrett) but it’s still coaching.

Everybody seems to think Vrabel is a good coach. He was in Tenn for SIX seasons, the team MADE THE PLAYOFFS the year before he was hired. What did he do? Repeated the 9-7 record missed the playoffs. He had ONE good run to the AFC Championship game, and CHOKED the Division Round the year they had the best record in the AFC. His winning percentage ..540, in SIX seasons. But, well “what do you expect had had Tannehill?” I wonder if it would be that good with the QB play Saleh has been dealing with?

If Vrabel can get that treatment with Tannehill at QB who is BY FAR better than anybody Saleh has had, then we can use some reason and perspective with Saleh.
