Mike Donnelly goes through the New York Jets roster to see just how depleted it is
I know that it has become fashionable to bash the Jets these days and take shots at them no matter what they do, but through two days, free agency 2013 has actually not been even close to the disaster it seems like for the team. Fortunately, it appears as though the team actually has a plan for the first time in a few seasons, and it’s off to a good start. While it may look like the team is being dismantled as free agent after free agent leave for greener pastures, it is actually the best thing that could be happening for this franchise, and in most cases, they already have a replacement on the roster and ready to step up, which is the best way to fill these holes.

Some people are comfortable making sports bets based on their gut. Everyone has heard a story or two about “a friend” who managed to make big money picking a team or horse based on the color of the uniforms, the animal’s name or another unscientific method.

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.

Frank Giasone on why New York Jets shouldn’t be panicking after day one of free agency
It’s not always easy for fans to sit back and watch as other teams climb all over one another for a chance to sign the most highly-touted free agents on the market. Unfortunately for some Jets fans, inactivity early in free agency equates to failure.
And while many understand that this “inactivity” is an intelligent non-move by Jets General Manager John Idzik, there’s been enough overreaction on Twitter on the first day of free agency to warrant my writing of this article.

The New York Jets released defensive tackle Sione Pouha, what’s next?
The New York Jets released Defensive Tackle Sione Pouha today, in a move that should surprise nobody. He is over 30 years old, has back issues and the Jets spent a 3rd round pick on his long term replacement in 2011, Kenrick Ellis. When healthy last season, Ellis was playing very well and should help fill the void left by Pouha, along with Mike DeVito who the team is making a strong push to bring back. Damon Harrison will also see a bigger role in the defensive line rotation. Pouha’s release frees up nearly 4 million dollars in cap space, giving the Jets some needed financial flexibility in the coming months.

A round-up and commentary on the New York Jets early movement in free agency
The New York Jets have started their off-season with a handful of small transactions and rumors swirling about their potential interest in certain players. There hasn’t been any shockers yet but they did lock in quarterback David Garrard to a contract today with the terms still undisclosed.

This silence is deafening
The Rex and Woody Jets being as quiet as they have been with free agency kickstarting on March 12th is just not normal. Maybe these are the John Idzik Jets now. Whatever that will come to soon mean. The silence has been refreshing, to say the least.
