I just know if they do make the playoffs they won't be able to beat anybody or even make some noise. They're just not good enough. Making the playoffs is not the goal, the goal is winning the SB. That's not happening this season.
So I'm not hoping they lose all of their games, I hope they win and I hope they make the playoffs.
I just want some drastic change during the offseason. This team is becoming pretty much devoid of talent and that must change quickly. I say give Tanny one more season, but one more season with someone else looking over his shoulder.
The team needs a big FA period and a great draft to become competitiors again. They need a new QB most of all.
I don't think the Jets need a drastic overhaul. I think what has been mostly overlooked is depth, and I think Tanny is realizing that. Really the only drastic overhaul needed for the Jets is at the QB position.
If we break it down the Jets D isn't missing much besides an OLB which are hard to come by. We have 2 very young DL in Coples and Wilk who are showing great potential for the next decade. If Ellis can stay healthy, watch out. We have 2 all world corners. What team can say they lost the best CB, but still have the best CB in the league. Wilson is solid in the slot. If we resign Landry thats great and we can develop a young safety. Davis will step in at LB, and this is the corps that needs the most retooling, but you can't fill each and every hole on a team.
On offense, our OL is solid, and someone posted an article from PFF how the jets O-line is one of the better ones in football. We have a young wr corps with Kerley and Hill and we still have Tone who can ball. Greene is serviceable, and I hope they resign him and give Powell more touches next year. Kind of what the giants did with Bradshaw and Jacobs a few years back.
When it's broken down, the biggest need for the Jets is QB and we're a pretty talented team all around, especially on defense. Rex is a good coach, and players love him, which is evident by players not rolling over and just quitting. We really dont need a drastic overhaul, a few pieces here and there and a QB (yes its easier said than done).
