    I feel no sympathy whatsoever for the Jets but it should be a cautionary tale about the dangers of selling the farm to try and win now. I hope they suck for the next decade but I think they’ll rebound quickly.

    Whens the annual thread about Rex Ryan guaranteeing a superbowl?

    They are in rebuild mode.

Miami is also going to be losing some starters but at least the Dolphins have around $44 million in cap space and a lot of high draft picks.
    With those cuts they are just below 6mil. They only have 10 returning starters (this includes Taco) and have over 25 roster spots to replace now. Of course nyjunc will tell you this happens all the time in the NFL and theres not to be concerned over

    Cautionary tale? every team has to release older, expensive players from time to time. The last time we had a purge like this was 11 years ago(and then we won the division), all of these moves were expected and planned for by the previous GM. I would like 1 or 2 of them back at a reduced salary but it made no sense to keep them at the price we were paying.

    2013 may be a tough year, it depends on what value FAs we can get and how we do in the draft but the jets aren't strapped for years to come.

    Nah, we'll go 0-16 next year and hopefully by 2017 we can win 4 or 5 games. It's really going to suck watching Miami win all those SBs too.

    It's taken some time but I am seeing the light.

    All jokes aside you guys should be better and if you have a good offseason I think you should be a playoff team(along w/ the development of your QB). We'll see how it goes, I always try to post honest opinions. Since I have been here there haven't been many times where you guys looked better on paper going into a season- this year should be one of those years.

    I hate the jets.
    I love watching the media circus, and they have done it to themselves. Rex Ryan should have been the first to go.
    Seeing Polite blow up Scott in the hole a couple of years ago sticks with me, and i wish someon had a sig of it!

    Not unexpected. At this point I think the Jets will have to lick their wounds in 2013. 2014 will be better but 2015 is when they should have purged the bad contracts and can move forward.

    I would not be surprised if Revis or Cromartie will be traded. Not only does that free up more cap space, they can focus on re signing Revis if that is the route they chose. I they keep Revis but are unable to re sign him and he walks away, that would be a huge blunder. Tough decision.

    I think the Jets will be a better team then many of you expect but I also think as of right now, they will finish 4th in the AFC. If they find a QB and get good play from the position they could win 6-7 games. The defense will actually be a problem next year with the amount of talent that won't return and the lack of depth.
