If it doesn't work then next year is the logical blow up time.
The AFC East stinks right now (excluding the Pats) and it really would not be too difficult to advance to the playoffs with a decent team. Who know, maybe it can be better than that, but if you blow it all up this year it will be a complete franchise setback for 3-5 years. We just are not in position to blow it up yet or spend a lot of money on someone else's reject.
Unfortunately this is how Jets management sees it. A mediocre product can and will advance to the playoffs on a regular basis in what has become a pretty crappy league. It won't put you over and that should be the goal.
Good reasoned post and I agree with you. Unfortunately I'm not sure I can watch the Jets play these kind of games simply because they are in the hunt for a playoff spot. Football should be more then making the playoffs. When are we going to field a great football team?
