Power Rankings: Jets dead last

The Jets stink.

That's pretty much the feeling of an ESPN panel of voters, which ranked the Jets at the bottom of the league in ESPN's Week 1 Power Rankings. That means they're worse than the Raiders, worse than the Jaguars, worse than the Browns.

Worse than everybody.

I guess the panel didn't buy into the Jets' 3-1 preseason.

Is the panel right about the Jets? I'd say they're a bottom-eight team, for sure. It's hard to say a team is the worst of the worst, but the Jets are starting a rookie quarterback who didn't play well in the preseason ... their best playmaker is coming off a major injury ... they have seven new starters on defense ... and so on.

Look at the bright spot: Anything they accomplish will be considered overachieving.
