Jets Look To Overcome Mediocre Status

So maybe it was the coach after all, eh? Poor Claude Noel, even one game over the .500 mark didn't do it – probably had to do with how much the first half of the 2013-14 season dipped into that record. Two winning seasons – 37-35-10 and 24-21-3 – but still no playoffs followed by a tumultuous 19-23-5 start to this season saw him ship out and saw the Jets playing uninspired...
