My Jets and my Mets are in the same precarious position but for different reasons. The Jets are hamstrung by a hard salary cap and the Mets are hamstrung by financial problems self-inflicted by ownership. Both teams have a lack of talent and bloated salaries. The Jets and Mets both appear to be headed towards years of non competitiveness.
Jets need to do what Sandy Alderson was hired to do for the Mets. Cut salaries and never sign impending free agents to high cost contracts. Rebuild the teams via draft picks and only sign low cost free agents.
