The Rebuild is underway, if you're a Jets fan it's sad, yet enlightening day as a fan. Yes, your team is about to be really bad, like I mean pathetic. However, your team's front office has finally realized the roster they have right now has no future, or hope for that matter, so let's just scrap it and rebuild. This is something most intelligent Jets fans realized a year or two ago, but hey better late than never right. Jets save close to $9 Million with this cap hit I believe, I don't know the exact number because I'm certainly not a math guy, so I'm just guesstimating, although I do know it was a pretty pennies worth. Jets already shitty offensive line just got a whole lot shittier. In the last two seasons they've lost two of the most consistent offensive lineman in football of the last decade, D'Brickashaw Ferguson to retirement, and Nick Mangold by cutting him. It's for the best, as long as they don't just waste the money on some players that aren't going to help build towards the future. Honestly, the Jets are so far behind in the rebuilding process that they almost just need to fully commit already, before it just fucks up everything.
The Jets can't be half in half out with the decision of rebuilding. You either go full blown rebuild or your front office is filled with a bunch of full blown retards. It may sound harsh, but it's true. Push out all the old, I mean Decker gone, Marshall gone, Revis gone, Forte gone, Pryor gone, Harris even though he still nice gone. While your at it get rid of Richardson and Wilkerson, I don't care how good they are, they treat your organization like it's a joke, probably for good reason, but still if you're trying to change that narrative surrounding your franchise, that's what you have to do. I'm being harsh I know, but when I see a franchise so blatantly being run by infant minded people it gets me angry. Jet fans are loyal fans, and this franchise of theirs just continues to disappoint the shit out of them with the miserable product they put out and expect to win. Even when the Jets were "good", Mark Sanchez was their quarterback, and if the Jets had a competent QB they'd probably would've won one of those AFC championship games. No, they continued to ignore the obvious for years, and that's the type of shit that's inexcusable.
Nick Mangold being cut was a tough yet neccessary decision for the Jets to make. It's the first step in the right direction. If they continue to take the right steps by releasing other veterans, drafting and developing a good young QB, and finding younger defensive personnel, along with an offensive line to protect your young entity, then they'll be going somewhere with real direction. Once the foundation of the team has been laid they can add some flashy skill player to put them over the top. Not going to be a fun or easy process for the fans though, your team is going to be unbearable to watch some Sundays, even though they're already unbearable to watch on Sundays, so actually their will be no difference in the gameplay for the next 3 years. Only difference will be this team will be growing for the future, give about 3 years, and you'll start feeling more confident than ever about the future of your Jets. Until then, I'll continue to ridicule your franchise and watch my Giants prove why we're the real owners of MetLife stadium and the New York fan base.
