Don't sweat it. Just like O'Donnell and Mirer before him, Manning would have forgotten how to throw a ball before the ink was dry on his Jet contract.
So what you are saying is, it's not the player, it's the Jets? Ya know, someting,, more than not,, I feel the same way, we are cursed. can we get some Hindu tribe to sacrifice a lamb for the half time show???
Hard to rebuild when your whole drafting/scouting/player development/talent evaluation organization is one of the NFL's worst, when your owner is a silver spooned twit, your GM is a glorified accountant, and when your head coach basically feels he can plug any old player into his defensive schemes successfully because he is, after all, the "greatest defensive mind" in the game.
Which is why they have to commit to rebuilding (which isn't easy)...
1) Which means trading any tradable talent over 27 for picks. Gives you a better chance of hitting on some.
2) Letting younger picks play, even if they're not ready, to see what you have and get them time to get better.
3) Bring in a GM that understand it's about building an explosive offense.
You can't just rebuild the whole house, you have to have a room to sleep in, meaning, you have to have a part of your team that is solid. Hate to bring it up, NE, BB has been rebuilding his whole defense, how can he do that, because Bradey can through the ball to my Grandma and score TD's. the O is solid enough to win games by scoring a lot. we need to solidify the Running game and QB spot. Until we do that we go nowhere. you can't rebuild the whole team at once, and those who say Defense wins games, well zero points on Offence loses them.
This isn't 1995. Teams don't "rebuild". This is the era of parity, where bottom feeders win divisions the following year.
The Jets have an extremley young roster.
Do they lack youth and athletisim at RB, ILB, OLB? Duh...
But you can improve those spots. "Blowing up" a team is a nonsensical idea that no team does.
A young roster that can't play football. Change everyone on this teams staff. Bring in someone who can coach the entire team, then bring in someone to draft correctly, then there's a chance. As long as there are no changes made, this team will continue to loose and let its fans down.
