    Are people forgetting that our second round pick is a top 50 pick? That's where I see the jets grabbing a WR.
    Yes they would if they liked the guy enough.

    i think what happened this past year, reminds me of when the jets lost to the steelers in the playoffs under herm. bradway thought they only needed a kicker, since their kicker missed 2 fg vs. pitts. so they draft a kicker in the 2nd round. but they didn't understand they needed to address other positions first. likewise, the jets last year and the year before made it to the final four. they thought they only needed to tweak here and there. they also were full of themselves, they believed they could let certain players go, that it didn't matter who they brought into the lockerroom. they completely misjudged their players relative to the rest of the league. but now, instead of tweaking here and there, tanny really needs a great offseason or he couuld get canned. he's got to fix the o-line, safety and wr positions, he needs a blocking TE, he needs impact players on both sides of the ball. but at least the urgency seems to be there, rather than complacency that they're 'almost there'.

    People can talk about airing it out like the Saints, Packers, and Lions all they want. The bottom line is, those teams air it out so much because they have a QB that is capable of doing so.


    Hire Sparano as OC
    Sign a solid RT in free agency
    Draft Trent Richardson

    That's my ideal way to start the offseason.
    I would hate that, hiring Tony Sparano as the OC. Sanchez threw over 500 times the last 2 seasons, they want to throw the ball too. Yes they need to improve the run game, get more explosive plays out of it. But they need to improve the weapons for Sanchez to throw to, this past season his receivers did not help him. Sanchez has improved his numbers every season so far.

    Those teams you listed also have deep weapons for their QBs. Packers backup QB threw for near 500 yards and 6 TD in a game. The Lions have Calvin Johnson.

    Jets need to improve all areas of the offense, sure up the OL, get a true #1 RB, get another WR that can stretch the field.

    If we hire Sparano, I would hire him as the OL coach, I would try to go for Todd Haley and Sparano teaming up. Reports say that they discussed working together again. Haley runs the passing game, Sparano runs the run game.

    Absolutely - and i think this is an offseason where we need to ball-out in the draft. 7 picks. move back maybe in the 2-3 round. (keep 1st) but i stand by what i said. it's not time to think "rebuilding"... the roster on offense was largely able to achieve better results. Turner will be back - and getting some stability on the right side is a need fer sure. A major reason we had some hiccups. ...but the other position that's been a mess is WR.

    i don't think the jets should remain a ground and pound team just b/c they think that's all sanchez can do. i think they should get rid of sanchez if that's the case and look to build a high powered offense anyway. sometimes the qb isn't the first guy on board.

    we might not agree with the philosophy but clearly the Jets have other priorities in the first round. it's like Andy Reid with linebackers, this front office just don't use first round picks on the position.
    We also only have 8 million in caps space. Free Agency isn't going to fix our needs anymore. At least not this year

    There will be more cap room freed up. Cut Hunter and Eric Smith and there is another almost 5 million saved right there. There will be cuts and contracts restructured this off season.

    And then we still need to resign guys like Devito and Marcus Dixon if I'm not mistaken.

    Then we also need to sign our drafted players

    Like it or not, right now the Jets are close to salary cap hell thanks to Revis' and Holmes contracts

    Agree with Bit on this.

    The Jets will address their WR need in FA. If they want a burner, they'd also select a WR in the mid rounds

    if you assume they'll get a safety in free agency, then the biggest remaining issues from the front office's perspective are pass rush and o-line. i expect the first two rounds of the draft to address these needs.
