But the Jets are now going to have to rebuild their rebuilding effort.
It's just amazing, this team is going nowhere.
Mangini looks like he's stark raving mad. What's he doing? That soft demeanor of his isn't getting it done.
I feel really sad for all Jets fans. We deserve better than this.
This is just plain ignorance as usual...since 1997 the jets have had only 2 losing seasons (2003, 2005) and those are mostly due to devastating injuries (especially in 2005). The problem is the Jets are consistantly good but not dominant (except in 1998/december 02). Throw in 2007 most likely and that's 3 losing seasons in 11 years..hardly anything to sneeze at and a far cry from the years prior to 1997.
This is what you call course-correction. The Jets had no business going 10-6 last year and this year they pay for it....it happens all the time. + the Jets always suck when they are suppose to be good (1999, 2003, 2005, 2007) that goes with the territory I suppose (ny media).
I know it's frustrating and it seems like teams pop up out of nowhere to become great and it seems it never happens to us, I agree it's just that the Jets are seemingly stuck at the mid-level card and that is probably the worst place to be because your draft status, if you're terrible will eventually help you. Maybe a terrible year is just what we need.
further edit* The Jets have the young pieces and the talent to trade off to immedietly rebuild for 2008. As much as I hate to single the guy out, we must see what Clemens has to offer and it's time to part ways with salary (Pennington, Coles) with the square parts (Robertson, Vilma, Dyson). This team isn't as bad as they're playing.
And for as good as NE is...this team would be nothing if they didn't get lucky with the 198th pick overall in the 2000 draft and any Patriot fan who disputes that is just plain ignorant. So you have to get a little lucky every now and then as well. The Jets have drafted particurarly well in the late rounds and well overall for the past few years, that to will contribute.
