The New York Jets skill position players on offense need to be versatile to compensate for the team’s lack of overall depth
Similar to the problems with assigning rigid labels on defense, pigeonholing offensive players to one spot is frequently an incorrect assumption. There is increasing fluidity to player’s positions and the New York Jets offense will need that type of versatility to help compensate for their lack of overall depth.

Here at Turn On The Jets, we decided to take a page out of Robert Mays book over at Grantland (a polite way of saying rip his article idea off) by counting down the 115 days until the New York Jets kick off, with a daily reason to get excited about their return.

It is short-sighted to judge the New York Jets free agency decisions because of David Garrard’s retirement and Mike Goodson’s legal issues
The New York Jets were mildly active in free agency this year. We cautioned this would be a likely approach this off-season, with the team’s decision making geared more towards 2014 than 2013. Every contract the team handed out was to a player with question marks surrounding them, generally based around health or a limited role in the past. In most cases, the valuation of contracts handed out by the team basically breaks down to being a one year tryout to see if the player merits an investment moving forward. A knee jerk reaction to David Garrard’s retirement and Mike Goodson’s legal issues is saying “New Jets GM John Idzik is 0-2 in free agency…Jets Circus continues.” That is a fun headline that is easy to crack a joke about on Twitter but like most work we see from the Jets beat and certain national writers takes into account minimal research and understanding of the team’s situation.

New York Jets quarterback David Garrard retired because of knee issues today, how will the Jets move forward at quarterback?
The New York Jets received surprising news today when quarterback David Garrard informed the team that due to swelling in his knee, he is deciding to retire. Considering he is 35 years old, hasn’t played a NFL snap in 2 years and missed all of last season with a bad knee, there is a limit to how surprising this news is.

The New York Jets must learn from their mistakes with Mark Sanchez when it comes to bringing Geno Smith along
It is no secret the New York Jets didn’t create an ideal environment for Mark Sanchez to succeed in, especially the previous couple of seasons. Yes, he gets the majority of the blame for not elevating his play in 2011 and 2012 but you are kidding yourself if you think he was put into a favorable situation. What is important now is that the Jets learn from their mistakes with Sanchez and work to create a quarterback friendly environment for Geno Smith. What does that involve?

A handful of Mike Tannenbaum draft picks could be in danger of not making the New York Jets final 53 man roster

Mike Donnelly with a closer look at the plan John Idzik has started executing to rebuild the New York Jets
On January 18th, things were looking pretty bleak over here in JetsLand as John Idzik was hired to take over as General Manager and right the ship. We heard it all regarding this team, whether it was that there’s no talent, or that the cap situation is impossible to fix. We heard the word “circus” thrown around repeatedly, and endless bashing of Rex Ryan and his team. Well, ever since then, Idzik has methodically went about his business and gotten this organization back on track, step by step. Jets fans who closely follow the team have praised him for the job he’s done from top to bottom. Let’s look at how in just three and a half months, John Idzik revamped this roster from “old, slow, and expensive” to “young, talented, and hungry” with a simple 7 part plan.
