Can New York Jets Fans Accept Pains Of Rebuilding?

TJ Rosenthal questions if New York Jets fans can accept the pains of rebuilding

Mike Devito and Sione Pouha are gone. Laron Landry is visiting the Colts and the impending doom that Revis Island is on his way out hangs over the fan base like a guillotine. David Garrard is now a Jet. Affordable “Upside potential” players like Mike Goodson and Brandon Gibson are coming to visit.

That may not enough for some

Jet fans but they better get used to it. Rebuilding is rarely smooth, sexy, and successful in the immediate. We wonder if Jets fans, many of whom realize the need to tear things apart, have the stomach for what is going to be a no nonsense, yet no frills ground-up repair.

When you get a taste of the high life for many it’s hard to go back to the old routine. For the Jet fan, two knocks on the Super Bowl doorstep followed by a plummeting descent could make it harder. Restructuring deals and watching big name vets walk is not nearly as fun as being in the buyers market. Percy Harvin moved to Seattle Mike Wallace landed in Miami. Other proven playmakers will soon change addresses too.

Jets fans will have to hope that the speed, agility and athleticism that Idzik seeks to acquire, for a fast paced vision that works within the budget, will one day blossom.

We wonder what the pain threshold for the diehards will be this time around. Now that a quick fix and a cheap media sell are no longer part of the gameplan anymore in Florham Park.

    i’m looking forward to a nice quiet rebuild. That’s what the team needs.

  • I know that we are rebuilding, but why did we keep Rex again? The only reason I see is so Idzick, can pin the 2 and 14 season we are about to have on him, and not his guy. That has to be the plan for him and Woody. Anyway, another season of pure misery is around the corner. How can ownership allow us to be in the position we are in now? I love my Jets and will always, but they sure can make it almost impossible to do so!!!

    We’ve been rebuilding for 44 years. What’s another couple of seasons?

    Please, and this applies to all posts on this sight, give your article a quick read before you post.

    “That may not enough for some”

    Kind of diminishes the impact of your words when one is missing and you forget a period.

  • I wonder why the Jets have not come out and say that they are rebuilding? They just cant tell the truth to their fans! This franchise is racked with delusional characters.

  • Jersey Jerry

    We need a TE.Why not give tebow a shot.We can’t unload him. Why not.He is big, has reasonable speed and can block, and tough.

  • Michael

    It is rare, when there will be a need to tell fans the truth.
    Remember Leon Hess Singing the praises of Rich Kotite? The only thing Leon said that was true “I am getting old fast, I want to win now”
    Jet Fans, Really, we have had way too many lows. Apparantly, GM Idzik has a plan, the ride will be bumpy, Rex no longer has alot of his guys, some coaches have been shown the door. I sense the bottom of the last 8 months of embarrassment is coming close to ending. 2013 may remind Jet Fans of Rich (3 Wins 29 Losses) Kotite. Cleaning house of Bad Contracts and worse players will be replaced by fresh, hungry, young, and hopefully No Nonsense champion Caliber Players. GM Idzik, I’m on Board, Do your Magic.

  • Hi there! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog.
    Is it hard to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I’m thinking about creating my own but
    I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Thanks
