Any given year there are any number of excuses given, hashed over, analyzed why "this season" didn't pan out. Next season it'll be for "fill in the blank" reason we aren't an elite team. GM's change, coaches change, players change.....the outcome seldom does. Why? Well, true leadership starts at the top and permeates an organization and it's effects are seen in big and small decisions. Over time these "correct" decisions build a strong lasting foundation of success. This is something the Jets organization has no familiarization with. It's really that simple.
THIS. For those of us who have worked for REAL leaders...even if way up the org chart, you know Greentide is right. The bickering in the JETS offices must be brutal. When Woody walks in....everyone is quiet.
