    While he is a Jet I can only hope for the best! I want to win and do not care who the HC or QB is. Winning is the only thing.

    Truth be told I wanted WRECKS gone when T was fired. He wasn't so lets hope he can salvage his career with us and makesus into winners!
    KJ, i wish i could believe that. That guy is Buddy's son, and i don't ever see him changing.

    It would be awsome to be proven wrong.

    I'm curious to see how this strategy works out. I don't remember a team in the NFL buying a championship like the Yankees did in MLB.

    This!!!!

    There were times when the Jets were just awful last year and Rex and his development of the key player on the team has been ABYSMAL with the most important player on the team in Sanchez!!!

    Herm's offense with Hackett in charge never looked as bad as Rex's offense has over the last two years. I would argue even with Brooks Bollinger at the helm the Jets didn't look as uncompetive as they did at times last year.

    Last year was a disgrace!!

    I'd rather go 4-12 and watch young talent develop then go 6-10 and watch overpaid retreads underachieve.

    maybe the jets won't be able to find adequate replacements for the starters who are gone but at the same time quite a few were free agents and were just not playing up to their salaries. and how many times have we seen teams (and sometimes the jets) come into the season with a who bunch of no names and do well? every season just about. this is where the coaches will earn their money. rex goes 8-8, he should stay.

What are you going to say now that they're building through the draft? They will need 45 picks at this rate you can't draft a whole team

The decision has already been made. Its the same situation as the bears last year.
    Lovie was fired because his teams constantly underachieved ever since losing the Superbowl to Indy.

    Last seasons epic meltdown just sealed the deal. The Bears started off 7-0 and still failed to make the playoffs.

    There are zero expectations for this team this year. Unless this team totally falls apart (locker room turmoil, etc) then Rex will be back next year.

    Look at the free agents the Jets are being bashed by the media for not overpaying to resign:

    Keller - TE who can't block

    Shonn Greene - mediocre 2 down back who was outplayed by scrubs like McKnight and Powell last year

    Mike Devito - decent run stuffing DE, Coples is starting anyway next year

    Yeremiah Bell - JAG Safety who only looked good last season b/c Jets fans are used to watching Eric Smith get burnt every game


    And there are a ton of good FA's available this year who are better and cheaper.

    Except your front office is telling your fans they are trying to put a compatible teAm on the field not develop players for the long haul

    Devito: Lunch pale guy who's about to be replace full time by the player drafted in the 1st round last yr. Where we supposed to pay him to sit on the bench .

    Landry: Solid SS who will be missed, but he showed us what we needed to compete against the soft zone in the NFL. We need to find an enforcer who can run some

    Bell: I wanted Bell back, but only to play the position Landry played last yr.

    Revis: Love the player and would love to keep him. You can't have a $15mil CB on a team that isn't ready to challenge seriously. He does more good to us giving us picks. We just gotta use them wisely.


    Sometimes to move forward, u gotta go backwards first. When we got Herm we won immediately, but it ended badly. Same with Mangini and Rex Ryan. It's time to make chicken salad out of chicken instead the excrement of the chicken.
    Keller will be productive in the right system and everyone was crying depth last year so now we have no d line rotation. Any you can pay revis 12-14 million a year because we're only paying or quarterback 8 million. Stop blindly agreeing with everything this franchise is doing.

    In a couple of years the Jets will have zero problems re-signing their players.

    As long as they begin to draft better than they have in the last few years.

    Despite what everyone says, drafts like 2008 & 2009.

    Only 1 player is still here from the entire 2008 and 2009 drafts combined.

    Mark Sanchez. That's unacceptable. There are players that the Jets are drafting that they can't keep for whatever reason.

    Tannenbaum and company really screwed up. That's unsat.

    A little premature IMO. Idzik did a good job getting us out of salary cap hell, but what the hell are we going to do in reference to players. Are we even going to field a team for 2013? I'm beginning to wonder.

    I thought for sure the Jets would get Devito back. What about Landry? What about Keller?

    I'm happy with Idzik getting our financials back in order, but we need to get going with signing some players.

    But the Sports Pope, on during the afternoons on WFAN, blessed us with the wisdom that the Jets' drafts were fine until Rex Ryan got here. He preached that the demise of the franchise happened because Ryan was allowed to pick personnel. Was Rex the head coach in 2008 and 2009?

    This homily was given after he said that Rex Ryan was still in full control of personnel decisions today, even after Idzik was hired. And of course, any defensive minded head coach who was coaching on a need to win basis would tell the GM to trade a franchise player on defense plus not resign some of the best players on his defense.

    Could not agree more, the last two years we have been garbage, missed the playoffs and its been like a kick in the stones knowing its happening with overpaid vets who don't give a ****.

    If we miss the playoffs and go 6-10 next year, lets do it watching young hungry players and playing some attractive ball.

    I can live with that while we build.

    How can you not love what this new guy has done thus far.

    He has gotten rid of the garbage on the roster that he could have without crippling our cap.

    He's not signing any old warriors looking for that final payday.

    He's not giving away our best asset without exhausting the opportunity to get the best value.

    He's looking for young cheap freeagents who has character and has shown something on the field.

    He's keeping the Media guessing at to what the Jets are doing.

    He has Rex Ryan somewhat quiet .(sidebar) Dear god please let this continue.

    Only 1 thing is left.

    If this guy pulls off a successful 1st draft, i nominate him for NYS Govenor.

    Agreed on all points, T.

    Also, with the deliberate, patient way he's operating, I see him trading down in the draft as well. Anti-Tannyism at its finest.
