The New York Jets have continually struggled this season, both on offense and defense, and are now an organization of disaster. Unless some major moves are made quickly, Gang Green will be a miserable mess for years to come.
From QB Mark Sanchez to head coach Rex Ryan, this New York team is now poisoned, and one or the other must go. If Rex Ryan cannot bare to drop Sanchez, which is now a lost cause after four seasons, then the head coach is the one who has to go. Which eventually means both Ryan and Sanchez would not be members of the Jets organization for much longer.
Rex has promised nothing but the best for this team year in and year out and has not produced. Sure the Jets have reached two AFC conference championships but one was earned primarily by their dominant defense. While the other AFC conference championship berth, they barely made the playoffs that year when Rex gave up on the season with about four games remaining and postseason hopes still alive.
Ryan has an outstanding football mind, however the love he has for his quarterback may lead to his eventual demise. Rex has proven to be a defensive genius and that may be the side of the football he needs to stay on. A lot of players tend to like playing for him, however, that does not mean that he must be a head coach.
It is unlikely that the Jets will make any major moves before the offseason, so the organization will have to thoroughly begin to research and decide which players they want to target in the upcoming 2013 NFL draft. From Utah DT Star Lotulelei to WVU QB Geno Smith, and USC QB Matt Barkley, the Jets have quite a few proven football studs to choose from. In a NFL draft class that is a solid three rounds deep, the New York Jets could capitalize on quite a few positional needs in 2013.
A few trades to gain extra picks in the draft should also not be out of the question for the Jets. There is a bevy of talent, especially in the first round, and Gang Green cannot afford to miss out. With only a few weeks left in the 2012-13 NFL season, take a look at five possibilities the New York Jets should consider selecting in the upcoming NFL draft.
