    Both those players overplayed their hands. Sort of like a child saying I want X but you know they don't deserve it.

    The thing that perhaps could have been done is to somehow convince them they are paid and are valued by the JETS. Not sure that was possible. Tanny is not a psychologist BUT perhaps he could have tried to keep them as leaving hurt them and us.

    Remember...Bray wanted a 25 mil 5 year deal. A few weeks later he signed a 1 year 1 mil deal and a month later or so was waived.

    Cotch wanted number 1 money. He is number 3 on PITT.

    Nick Mangold's injury and the Colin Baxter experiment.

    Faliure to adequately replace Damien Woody and Alan Faneca (no, Slauson is not that good) hurt more than anything.

    The musical chairs at WR certainly didn't help either.

    2009 - Cotchery, Stuckey
    2009 - Edwards, Cotchery
    2010 - Edwards, Holmes, Cotchery
    2011 - Holmes, Burress, Mason
    2011 - Holmes, Burress, Kerley
    2012 - Holmes, Kerley, Hill

    Not exactly a recipe for developing a young QB. When the one constant at WR (Holmes) is a headcase who only plays for himself you can't expect great results. Not making an excuse for Sanchez as I think he blows, but the offensive personnel has been horribly mishandled over the past 4 years.

    Too much to list.
    Rex not being a true head coach.
    Not replacing key players on the O.
    Sanchez, Sh!tty, Sparano......Tanny
    Spending way too much money on Revis, Harris, Santonio, Sanchez, Scott...

    Too many issues.

    definitely true. replacing woody with hunter was one of the worst moves the team has made. the ducasse pick was a critical bust and left the jets with no depth on OL. this is the main reason for sanchez's lack of development over the last two years and in the running game

    Releasing Cotchery.
    He was affordable, had good chemistry with Sanchez, was a character guy this team desperately needed last year and not to mention a fan favorite.
    Very stupid move.

    I think it was Tannenbaum's shortsightedness and tunnel vision focusing on a mediocre Asomugua exclisively instead of trying to build the offense.
