That momentous occasion is upon us in which the New York Jets’ preseason schedule will be released. This is when we find out if the Jets will be playing in MetLife Stadium all preseason, will they play on the road, will they face the New England Patriots or play against the New York Giants.

I know when the preseason schedule is released the first thing I look for is if they will play on the road.  According to the Jets’ official website, their preseason schedule is:

Jets vs. Detroit Lions
Jets vs. Jacksonville Jaguars
Jets at New York Giants
Jets vs. Philadelphia Eagles

The one thing all of these teams have in common with the Jets this preseason is they all missed the playoffs last season.

When the Jets play the Lions, the storyline I will be watching out for is how Darrelle Revis will match up against Calvin Johnson (if Revis is still a Jet). With Revis coming off of a torn ACL injury, this will be a true test of how he has recovered and if he is still the No. 1 cornerback in the NFL.

The Jaguars game will hopefully be an audition for Tim Tebow to play for his hometown team where he’s looked at as a hero. Hey Shahid Khan, you know want to convert to Tebow, please take him. Good luck Tim!

When the Giants play the Jets, it’s always circled on my calendar, no matter what type of season it is. I always looked at it as who will take the title of “King New York.” I always say the Kings are the Jets because their team colors are green, and you have to have that mean green in order to ball in New York.

The Jets and the Eagles are in the same position as an organization since they both had high expectations of Super Bowl or bust last season. This will be a test of who has learned from last season, and who is ready to go to that next level before the 2013 season begins.

Jets fans and Jets haters, what are you looking forward to in this year’s preseason?
