The flip side to all of this lose for a better draft pick talk is the ability to sign free agents. What pitch would you rather make to a potential free agent.
We finish 8-8, winning three of the last four with a young core that is close to the playoffs. Or we finish 6-10, having lost 6 of our last 7 and still appearing to be far from playoff contention.
6-10 and we may get a better draft pick. 8-8 and we may get better free agents.

Of course not. It's a higher VALUE, how it's used would determine if it equates to a better team.Looking at things on paper (higher draft choice) isn't the only thing that equates to a better team.
Agree to disagree, I think this concept belongs in the GReat Book of Fan/Non-Althlete Fantasies.Learning how to win is not a fantasy.
No, it's Tom Brady and Bill Bellichek.Look at the Patriots. It's their culture.
Remove them, and see how fast their "culture" changes.
This also belongs in the Fan Fantasy Book, the idea that what happened in previous years with different players and staffs, somehow effects now.Our culture is to implode at the end of every season.
As if the Walton, Kotite, or Herm Era has some effect on today.
Call it the "40+ Years Without a Title" Fantasy.
Sorry, but no. Favre getting hurt and us falling off the face of the Earth at the end of that season.....has nothing whatsoever to do with now.
And winning two late season garbage times games, games eveyone knows is garbage time, will not materially help some to-be-determined-2014 roster "learn to win".
Hell, if things go as expected, 50% of our Offense starters won;t even be on the ROSTER in 2014....what does "teaching them to win" accomplish, exactly?
The ONLY "pitch" a Free Agent needs is total money, contract length and guaranteed money.
Anything they say to the contrary.....is a lie, pure and simple.
Failure of Fan perception.We finish 8-8, winning three of the last four with a young core that is close to the playoffs. Or we finish 6-10, having lost 6 of our last 7 and still appearing to be far from playoff contention.
We're NOT "close to the playoffs" regardless of if we finish 8-8 or 6-10.
This team is so clearly not a playoff calibur team, such sillyness is utterly irrelvant.
Money buys free agents. Not "hey, but we won 7 last year, not 6.....so, you'll sign, right?" arguments.
You had me at "The Jets have enough Talent....." before I tuned you out.
If you mean talent on the Defensive side, you're right but there was close to NOTHING on the offensive side.
So no. The Jets did NOT have enough talent, plus they drafted a BUST named Stephen Hill.
My buddy, huge Jets fan died a week before the season began...we used to laugh at how these billionaire Jets owners dont spend their money although one owned an OIL company and the current one makes BILLIONs in profits selling his toxic medicines.
Major sports market and still not even an apperance since we were born....cant have that conversation with him this year though.
So too my buddy in heaven.....next year, brother. Maybe next year.
