Major Rebuilding Job Ahead
After the preseason I believed that the Jets were not a championship caliber team and needed to be rebuilt. Yesterday proved that the Jets have a great deal of work ahead of them in order to make this team competitive. The most glaring need is the offense. The Chargers pass rush was relentless. The Jets quarterback was treated like a rag doll. It was fortunate that McElroy came off the field in one piece. The Jets offense needs linemen to protect the quarterback, running backs to keep the opposing defense honest and receivers who can get open and hold onto the ball. The Jets defense needs some young and quick linebackers. The defensive line is a plus and appears to be set at this time. However, the entire atmosphere of the team needs to change. I am not sure if Rex Ryan has what it takes to manage an entire team.
