This upcoming football season, I'm excited for many things. The Super Bowl is coming to MetLife Stadium. There are so many young, exciting players ready to take the league by storm. Mobile quarterbacks are all the rage these days. That’s all well and good, but unfortunately for me and every other person in my situation, none of that excitement involves the New York Jets. In fact, Jets fans feel the polar opposite of excitement this summer. Disgust, dread, embarrassment, anger, and in some cases, complete apathy are the feelings that the Jets have and will conjure up in the hearts of their many “fans” this year. My Jets aren’t just bad, they will be downright disgraceful.
The worst part is, it didn’t have to be this way. The Jets roster is a result of extremely poor management by Mike Tannenbaum allowing the roster to deteriorate year after year without seeming to care. Despite getting to the AFC Championship Game in 2009, the 2010 season was the only real chance the Jets had of getting to the Super Bowl, which they nearly did. Since then, management has done an awful job at keeping some semblance of talent on the team.
And now Tannenbaum is gone, but his stench still remains surrounding the team like child support surrounds Antonio Cromartie. While I think that John Idzik and Rex Ryan have the right idea, it’s going to be a few horrible years before the Jets can even think about an 8-8 record.
But for now, enjoy the Mark Sanchez to Braylon Edwards connection that got old three years ago!!!
