Jets Fan: What Do You Want Them to Do?

If you’re a Jets fan and you saw tonight’s 41-10 debacle against the Colts, you want something to be done. Usually, “something” means firing the coach, maybe the GM, but something must be done. You can’t stand for this.

For us fans of teams like the Raiders that have been bad for a long time, you kind of smile. Because you know the Jets are the kind of franchise whose fans don’t believe in a clean rebuild. The kind that has a very old owner who is desperate for an immediate Super Bowl win. By “rebuild”, I mean the kind of season where they can draft a player like a Von Miller or a Khalil Mack. The kind where they get a quarterback like an Andrew Luck or Cam Newton.

The problem with that is, Von Miller was a second overall pick. Mack was a fifth overall pick. Luck and Newton were first overall picks. Jets fans won’t stand for a season that bad. As long as they want easy, immediate fixes, that drought is going to continue.

If I were Jets fan, I’d look forward to a few years of bringing in guys like Tony Romo, like Terry Glennon, and going mediocre. Jets fan doesn’t want PAIN; they want to take what’s left of their defense, get a quarterback and go beat the Patriots. Which by the way, is not happening as long as Tom Brady is still competing at a high level. Oh yeah, there’s still Pittsburgh, Denver, Kansas City and Oakland.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
