With the Jets I think there were some expectations that the young guys should step up when the vets like TRich, Faneca, Tomlinson left. That didn't happen. Was it a fault of the character of the young guys (Sanchez, DBrick, Harris, Revis ?). Was it bad coaching not to help the youngsters make the transition ? Was this failure of leadership destined to happen regardless of any other facts ? Those are the questions worth debating.
You can't replace all those guys with the few amount of draft picks we had.
In 09 we had 3 (1, 3, 6 Rd) and in 10 (1,2,4,5 Rd) we had 4. We're paying for those years.
