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.
