It's going to be hard and it's not just about the QB position. The Jets stand to lose some premium players like Laron Landry and Dustin Keller. The Jets could take a hit at both of those spots in 2013 because of their cap situation and limited flexibility. No franchise tag allowed for Landry and no franchise tag used on Keller because of the cap.
Woody Johnson has definitely set the Jets up as a retool team for 2013. That's why Rex is still here. He's given Rex the task of fixing the coaching staff while Idzik is in charge of fixing the Jets cap and talent level for 2013 and beyond. Make or break year in my opinion for Rex because Woody expects this team to be a contender this coming season.
Completely agree. I'm hopeful the Jets will be able to retain Landry, but it isn't looking particularly good. More realistic is their ability to sign Keller to a middling deal and repair Sanchez to a degree. After that, some stop-gap measures like the best OL available and improved play from Hill will go a long way to this team succeeding with diminished talent on the D.
