More than just the Nnamdi chase - to me it was the entire offseason after the lockout. The Jets lost a lot of talent and leadership that offseason that was never adequately replaced. O Line had no depth, thinking hunter could replace Woody, the Holmes contract, no WR depth. I think the 2011 offseason is where the downward spiral began.
