Totally, completely, undeniably, screwed next year as well
The Jets have no room for any major free agent moves, signed a weak-armed glass QB to a long-term high money deal who never warranted it except in 1 game and depended on a 32 yr. old RB, a 34 yr. old C, a 30+ yr. old LG, and a 32 yr. old LT to lead their offense to the promised land with virtually no depth behind any of these guys.
Jay Fiedler isn't depth, he's old and is a never-was. He's garbage. You don't back up an injury prone QB coming off rotator cuff surgery with an injury prone QB (Fiedler couldn't stay healthy last year, hence the Feeley trade). It's a wonder Brooks Bollinger lasted in the NFL as long as he has. Obviously he doesn't belong here. Vinny Testaverde doesn't salvage seasons, he ruins them.
So this team has to cut all of these guys next year and start over right?
Not possible, they lose $26+ million in salary cap penalties next year WITHOUT EVEN MAKING 1 MOVE THIS OFFSEASON. This means our team next year will resemble something like this.
QB-Whatever trash they bring in to keep the spot warm for Penny
RB-Houston or Blaylock
FB-Askew (Sowell is a free agent)
LG-(Insert 3rd or 4th Round Draft pick)
RE-Ellis (Thomas if they can afford to keep him and cut Ellis)
MLB-Vilma (If he doesn't commit suicide b4 that)
CB-Strait (Bye Ty, too much moolah man!)
SS-Rhodes (if he doesn't have Vilma shoot him b4 he kills himself)
FS-Coleman (See Rhodes above)
K-Whoever they use their 1st round pick on to replace Nugent
P-Ben Graham (only bright spot)
I predict they draft a kicker with their 1st rounder, and trade their 2nd and 3rd rounders to the colts for their 2-5th round picks and draft crap o-lineman and a WR related to Terrell Owens, whose about as good as McCareins but talks as much sh** as TO.
Herm gets fired, Bradway stays and we are swamped in another Dark Age for the next 4 years.
We will welcome in our new "home" with a 1-15 or 2-14 campaign.
As I said in a prior post, learn to embrace the losing, when you expect it, the wins are surprising......The past few years have been an aberration....
