There’s been no joy in recent years for Jets nation, but now their beloved team has a new uniform (whoopee!). It gives the poor dears at least something to cheer about.

<p>Or does it? Reaction to the new uniform is mixed. Or, as New Yorkers like to say, meh.</p><p>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;blockquote class=\"twitter-tweet\" data-lang=\"en\"&gt;&lt;p lang=\"en\" dir=\"ltr\"&gt;The only thing worse than bad uniforms is bad teams wearing bad uniforms. &lt;a href=\"https://t.co/RRarc2wzuE\"&gt;https://t.co/RRarc2wzuE&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;— Joe Giza (@JoeGiza) &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/JoeGiza/status/1113971695487000577?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;April 5, 2019&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/blockquote&gt;\n&lt;script async src=\"https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js\" charset=\"utf-8\"&gt;&lt;/script&gt;\n"}[/]</p><p>If you forgot to save the dates for the highly-anticipated roll out a new uniform for the NY Jets’ 2019 campaign, in honor of their 60th season in the NFL, you may be forgiven. After all, there’s a lot more interesting stuff going on in life than worrying about what garments the woeful Gang Green will trot out in.</p><p>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;blockquote class=\"twitter-tweet\" data-lang=\"en\"&gt;&lt;p lang=\"en\" dir=\"ltr\"&gt;New Jets uniforms.

Does Christopher Johnson really believe dressing up his boys in a new shade of green is going to mark the beginning of a new era? Is there really a scenario in which the Jets will somehow morph into the Patriots by photosynthesis?</p><p>Hope springs eternal, so they say.</p><p>No offense Jets fans, but dress it up whichever way you want. It doesn’t change the fact that the team has been a shambles for years. It is all well and good with the applause while the team struts it’s stuff on the catwalk. Drops it like it’s hot. Throws in a couple of twerks. Entertainment is all that is.</p><p>What really matters is what they actually do in 2019. Of course, short of a crystal ball, we won’t know exactly how 2019 will unfold but, if the current <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/betting-odds/nfl-football/" target="_blank">buffet of NFL odds</a> is any indication, it isn’t quite the Promised Land they’re hoping for.</p><p><a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/betting-odds/nfl-football/championship-winner/futures/" target="_blank">Bookmakers rolled out an early serving of NFL futures that are quite revealing</a>, in that at least it can give NFL bettors a sense of how the market measures the value of the Jets as they currently are, in a state of rebuild.</p><p>The Jets open as the whopping +10000 NFL pick to win Super Bowl LIV and the +2500 punt to win the AFC Championship across <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/best-sportsbooks/" target="_blank">most top-rated sportsbooks</a>. Season win totals opened with the Jets at 6.5 win totals, but that line has moved up to 7 with early betting it seems. Don’t read into it, overly.</p><p>It’s no secret Jets nation had very little to cheer about during the Todd Bowles experiment. Four years in New York culminated with a horrendous 38-3 loss to the New England Patriots in week 17 that saw them slip to 4-12 SU record in 2018. Well and truly overmatched, outmuscled and thoroughly embarrassed, that game epitomized everything Gang Green had become over the last four years.</p><p>Ok. There was one bright spot during Bowles’ tenure. It was his first term as head coach and Ryan Fitzpatrick (of all quarterbacks, replacing the frustrating talent Geno Smith) led the Jets to 10-6-0 SU finish. Alas, even that mark wasn’t good enough for a playoff spot then.</p><p>After that promising start things took a nosedive for Bowles in New York. To be fair, it was a gradual decline, going 7-9-0 SU in 2016, then 5-11-0 SU in 2017 and, finally, 4-12-0 SU last term. To put it into its full dreadfulness 26-38-0.</p><p>Todd Bowles out. Adam Gase in.</p><p>Wait, is that an improvement? Come on, y’all really think the Dolphins cast-off after three mediocre seasons (23-25-0 SU) is going to lift Gang Green into the upper echelons of the NFL?</p><p>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;blockquote class=\"twitter-tweet\" data-lang=\"en\"&gt;&lt;p lang=\"en\" dir=\"ltr\"&gt;How do ya like the Jets new uniforms?&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Adam Gase:&lt;br /&gt; &lt;a href=\"https://t.co/RfYhJlCUly\"&gt;pic.twitter.com/RfYhJlCUly&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;— CleWest (@erjmanlasvegas) &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/erjmanlasvegas/status/1113999942077386752?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;April 5, 2019&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/blockquote&gt;\n&lt;script async src=\"https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js\" charset=\"utf-8\"&gt;&lt;/script&gt;\n"}[/]</p><p>Heck, maybe they do need new uniforms after all. At least the Jets will be well-dressed for the campaign. That’s something to cheer about Jets nation, isn’t it?</p><p style="text-align:center"><a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/forum/nfl-betting/" target="_blank">Talk Football At SBR's NFL Betting Forum</a></p>
