Dumb and Dumber.
The New York Jets' 2012 campaign was nothing short of a dumpster fire, an embarrassing confluence of events that would make Lindsay Lohan blush.
I believe owner Woody Johnson made a grievous error when he fired general manager Mike Tannenbaum and kept head coach Rex Ryan. If one was going to go, the other needed to be fired as well.
Ryan has proved to be clueless, both in game management and in dealing with his fractured locker room. I don't have confidence in his ability to lead the team.
New general manager John Idzik is, by all accounts, a nice man, but he wasn't making decisions in Seattle, and that's worrisome for a team in need of a 53-man roster makeover.
As if all that wasn't enough, there are serious questions about Mark Sanchez's viability as an NFL starting quarterback.
The Jets are a mess, and I think they'll bottom out in 2013.
