The Jets season ended in disappointment with six straight losses and falling short of the playoffs after a promising start, but overall, the year showed that the team is much closer to competing than it appeared a season prior.
But the step forward may have inspired too much confidence in some fans.
One fan believes so much in the state of the franchise that they decided to get the Jets logo tattooed above their hip, with a caption below that says “Super Bowl LVIII Champs.”
That’s right. This fan is making a lifetime investment that Gang Green will win it all next season.
Will this become a lifelong mistake or an elite prediction? It will likely hinge on who the Jets can get at the quarterback position, but the team certainly has championship level talent at a number of positions, particularly on the defensive side, and at wide receiver with Garrett Wilson. Still, plenty will have to go right for this fan to avoid being a laughingstock a year from now.
Some would argue that the fan is already a laughingstock for getting the ink in the first place.
