Being a fan of this team makes me want to committ Suicide
There’s dysfunction going on here on so many levels, it’s absurd.
The only hope they have is the owner selling the team, which hopefully will happen sooner than later.
I heard it was Woody’s demand that they trade for Favre and sign Tebow (both disasters on the field) just to make back page headlines and sell PSL’s. Neither Mangini wanted Favre at the time and neither Rex or Tannenbaum wanted Tebow – which is now obvious because Tebow didn’t play at all to justify his contract. It seems all they care about is making headlines for the wrong reasons in order to steal the Giants thunder, who do it the right way.
Also, giving Sanchez that huge contract was the silliest thing I’ve ever seen in my life. Coming off of a poor season no less. Let him earn his extension with his play on the field. If they hadn’t given him that contract last year, they’d be in much better shape financially now. Now, they are hamstrung because of it and will probably suck for at least 2 more years.
Unless Woody miraculously decides to become “hands off” and let management properly handle the day to day and just sign the checks there’s no hope until we have a new owner.
In the meantime, nobody wants to even be involved with the team. The best players, coaches, and managers are turning the jets down. Notice how Peyton Manning wanted nothing to do with the Jets? As you can see his presence alone is worth probably 5 or 6 additional wins per year.
The salary cap issue also will discourage many GM candidates from wanting to take the job- in addition having to deal with a lame duck coach AND quarterback. Most GM’s want to come in and pick their own coach.
I hope woody sells the team...
