After having tremendous success with the behind-the-scenes docuseries, Flight 2021: An Offseason with the New York Jets, the organization has decided to renew One Jets Drive for its fourth annual season.
Now on August 10, 2021, the wait is finally over Jets fans. At 8 p.m. eastern time tonight, your all-access pass to training camp at Florham Park begins.
Just hearing head coach Robert Saleh talk about how the opposition will have to deal with “our speed” and “our violence” in the trailer is enough to make any diehard fan run through the nearest brick wall.
The trailer concludes with another quote from the passionate Jets HC; “How can you guys get it together so we’re hitting on all cylinders come Sunday? So when a team walks onto the field with us, it’s an absolute ass-whooping.”

What Is One Jets Drive?
In case you missed the first few seasons, One Jets Drive has become more than just the address of the Green and White training facility. It’s a behind-the-scenes documentary series that was nominated for 11 Emmy Awards this year for the 2020 production, winning two in 2018.
Think HBO’s Hard Knocks, except all-Jets all the time. The other difference is that the franchise’s version continues throughout the regular season, while Hard Knocks only takes place during training camp.
This season of Hard Knocks will also air episode one tonight, at 10 p.m. eastern time, so you can easily watch both shows live. The HBO series will focus on the Dallas Cowboys in 2021.
More close to home, expect Flight 2021 2.0, with less scouting and personnel and more football. The four-part miniseries got every fan hyped for the fresh start that Coach Saleh and Zach Wilson are bringing to this franchise among others.
If you missed it, you can still binge it anytime, but do yourself a favor and watch it before you start One Jets Drive — continuity is key.

How to Watch & What to Expect
As always, One Jets Drive will be available to stream via the New York Jets YouTube channel, nyjets.com, or the team’s official Facebook page.
It will not be released in one lump sum binge-worthy care package like Flight 2021 was. This docuseries takes place over the course of the 2021 campaign, meaning it is ongoing.
Last season spanned from August 4 to January 7 and included 13 episodes total, averaging 18 minutes in length according to Michael Nania of Jets X-Factor.
With how young and different this roster is looking heading into the preseason, there’s plenty to watch for in the docuseries this year.
General manager Joe Douglas and this front office have compiled a stout rookie class that was highly regarded by many analysts and publications. He has also brought in numerous high-priority free agents, like Carl Lawson and Corey Davis.
The Jets recently revealed their unofficial depth chart, which listed nine veteran starters that weren’t on the roster in 2020 and four additional rookie starters that are fresh off college ball. One of those four was sixth-round linebacker Hamsah Nasirildeen, who has excelled in camp.
Not to mention a totally revamped coaching staff filled with Super Bowl pedigree. That includes a brand new defensive and offensive scheme and a new leader in Coach Saleh.
Simply put, if you love Jets football, you do not want to miss One Jets Drive.
