Four-time Pro Bowl linebacker CJ Mosley says the Jets are ‘two steps ahead’ of where they were last season.
They would have to be, if his stated goal of making the playoffs is going to be a reality. The Jets have finished bottom of the AFC East in eight of the last six years.
They haven’t reached the playoffs since 2010. In spite of all this, CJ Mosley thinks the postseason is a ‘realistic’ aim for 2022.
“I’m really expecting playoffs or bust,” CJ Mosley said.

It seems a lofty aim, considering head coach Robert Saleh led them to a 4 – 13 record in his first season. Mosley says familiarity with the system will propel the Jets to greater (or indeed, any) heights next year.
