Jets could "afford" to take this approach as they would largely be free of the huge contracts. Don't have to worry about having a retooling year or two while paying Revis $16 mil per. Use the two #1 picks to bolster the Oline this year and next.
We dont need 8 -10 wins next year and get bounced early in the playoffs. Arent you sick of doing this every year? We need to go 3-13 and get the top pick and take the best qb on the board.
3-13 guarantees us pick 1 or 2 in the draft. It guarantees us that rex gets fired and a real coach comes in here.
Winning 8 games with alex smith is the worst possible outcome for next year.
