Lets Become a Respectable Organization
Today was the day that I have to come to the realization that Mark Sanchez and the New York Jets are not a good team. As many of you have pointed out us Sanchez lovers have been giving him too many excuses. Time after time he has continued to show why he will not succeed in a New York Jets uniform. I believe he has to go along with this dingbat of a head coach.
How can we become a respectable organization?
Well like Joe Namath said it begins at the top. Woody needs to fire both Tanny and Rex along with any of his coaches even if Westoff wants to stay one more year. If we are going to rebuild we need to do it right, with a clean slate.
As I previously stated Sanchez needs to go. Unfortunately under his current contract that something that isn't likely to happen this offseason. However I do believe that there are some things we can do this offseason to rebuild this organization and make it respectable. I'm sick and tired of being the "clowns" of the NFL.
So Rex and Tanny are gone. Who do we get for a coach? Well there is no easy answer to that question. People are calling for Jon Gruden, Sean Payton, or Bill Cower. Well none of those guys are going to want to come here if he can't have full control of his team. Woody is going to have to accept the fact that the fans want wins, not to be talked about 24/7. He is going to have to allow the head coach to make all the calls. No Tebow or Farve incidents can occur. We must build from the bottom if we want to be in the same class as the steelers, giants, falcons, bears, or any team that seems to be able to compete year after year. We must develop young core players that will grow into superstars, not sign has beens.
There are many positions that we need to address in the upcoming draft and fortunately for us there are some great prospects coming out in this year's class. In the first round we need to draft a pass rusher mostly because I believe that right now it is our biggest weakness even if Sanchez is garbage. Jarvis Jones seems to me like a sure lock to become an absolute beast in this league. Mingo from LSU is more of a DE but maybe possible to convert. Any way need a pass rusher. It depends on where we are drafting to say if we should go OLB or QB.if its later in the round maybe we can go for tyler wilson. I believe that we should draft a RB in the second round Greene has no explosion and isnt even a good power back. This draft should be about addressing our 3 key weaknesses: OLB, QB, RB. In this draft we should draft 2 QBs; one in the first 3 rounds one in the last 4 rounds, same thing with OLB. Hopefully one of the two guys will do something. And for RBs i say make a run for gillislee from Florida and take Lattimore in the late rounds if hes available.
In the offseason we need to fill out the rest our teams roster.
We need to sign a left guard to come in and compete with slauson and ugly. we need someone to compete with austin howard.
On offense we will look bad yet again with Sanchez at the reigns (unless he loses to one of the rookies in camp, wouldnt be surprised)
However we will have Holmes, Hill, Kerley, and hopefully Keller ( i believe he will be back for decent pay because he is having a very subpar year) those are some pretty decent skill players. The offensive line really needs to step up their game, DBrick and co arent looking good this year.
On Defense we will have some great linemen. Clearly Wilk is starting to break out and Coples has shone at times. Pouha and Eliis should be able to control this middle. Our Linebackers need to look totally different. Pace, Thomas, and Scott need to go. this is a passing league and if you cant outrun a QB you might as well apply to mcdonalds now. Keep demario and harris inside. one of the two draftees on either side and try to go after dayrl smith or anthony spencer to fix the other side. I love our DBs. Cro is showing just how lucky we are that we got him and not Nnamdi and Hulk smash is a great playmaker. hopefully revis is back as good as new and we should be pretty set in our defensive back field. maybe sign Byrd from buffalo to take over for the old man Bell.
Thats the end of my rant thats all i got. But this New York Jets team definately has the core talent that is needed to win championships. I believe with the right GM and head coach it is something that will be accomplished in the near future. What do you guys think?
