In response to ghostofjri37's comment:
If the Jets just quit screwing around at QB and got themselves a legit signal caller they would be a playoff team. They have the foundation it is a matter of a QB and a couple of skill players. Here is to hoping Geno Smith stays around for a while.
I don't agree. They have 3 good defenive linemen in Wilkerson, Richardson is also s good run stopper type and Harrison might be something, but they have so many busts. I just don't think you can have so many older players (Reed, Pace, Holmes, Harris, Mangold, Cromartie, Winslow, etc), knowing you have to replace a lof of them soon, that their pipeline is as weak as any in the league.
This will be their 3rd straight year in missing the playoffs and 2 of their wins were under suspicious circumstances. Their problems are definitely at QB with busts, but also elsewhere like at WR, RB, S, CB OL.
Lot of holes to deal with and I don't think Idzik is dumb enough to pull a Tannenbaum and just go shopping to fix them.
Russ their front 7 is solid. They lack a corner and a safety on d. The o-line is serviceable and the backs are fine. They lack a playmaker at wr.
Bring in a business like HC, a QB and some skill players they will be a legit playoff team.
A good QB can cover for some "holes".
