1. Fire Tanny, try, and replace him with the Ravens assistant GM, if that happens I think Rex stays, if it's another GM I keep Rex, but only if keeping him results in Petine signing a multi year extension as DC, so if Rex proves he still is an ass clown as a HC in 2013 we can still keep his D scheme that our D talent is built around.
2. Cut everyone who is not in the future plans NOW, take all the cap hits in 2013, season will be a wash, as for Rex don't judge on wins, and losses judge on player development, and management skills. This includes Sanchez, Holmes, Moore, Pouha, Pace, Scott, Smith, Smith, Devito, and maybe even D Harris, let Thomas, Keller, Greene, Braylon, Bell, all walk! Open the check book up for 2 players, sign Revis to an extension, and give Landry a 4 year contract.
3. Hire a OC with an open minded philosophy, that will tailor his offense around the talents he is given, for example the Seattle OC, if new GM sees fit to fire Rex he would be my 1st choice as HC, and hopefully be able to get a DC who can keep the 3/4, hybrid nickel D scheme around, and run it successfully. So obviously fire Schot... I mean Sparano.
4. 2013 is a planned wash, so every draft pick is BAP no taking a WR who might be their the following round, or someone who is ranked similar to him on your board if a DT, DE, CB is by far the highest ranked player on your board (see Jerry Reese, and JPP), and this includes round 1, IMO if L Joeckel is off the board, and a guy like Teo falls to you, and he is the highest ranked player on your board you take him even thou you need A LOT of help on offense. Draft a QB in round 3, or 4, maybe 2nd if you fall in love with a T Bray, Glennon, and their available.
5. Tank 2013, go 1-15, and if that mid round QB who you started all season, and built the offensive philosophy in 2013 stunk (were 1-15 he probably did) draft Johnny ****ing Football Manziel, and build a offense like they have in Wash. Carolina, and Seattle, and continue to draft SPEED all over the offensive skill positions to compliment Manziel. Use all extra cap space we have from taking all the dead cap hits in 2013, to sign 2 Established, Veteran, locker room leaders on the OL like we did with Faneca, and Woody, and a true young, and up, and coming speed WR like Wash did with Garçon, not overly expensive, but not cheap either. 2014 at this point should be a roster stacked with Speed on offense, 4 stud veteran OLmen, and 1 1st, or 2nd year starter from one of the drafts, and the defense will have talent still all over the field, and hopefully more speed at LB from the last 2 drafts, or one signed in FA in 2014, group that with Colpes, Wilk, Ellis, Harris (maybe), D Davis, Revis, Cro, Landry, and a drafted true center fielder ball hawk drafted in 2013 (preferably David Amerson in this years 2nd round from NC State). If QB from this years draft works out, then pretty much do the same thing we won't have a top 3 pick in this situation, but still will have a lot of cap space to continue to build around him.
In both scenarios from #5 I see the Jets being able to contend for a playoff spot, and make a serious run for the foreseeable future, even if the QB's don't work out, keep drafting 1 every year, maybe even 2 in some years until you find that QB, with the new CBA you can dump crappy highly drafted QB's quickly, and they don't kill your cap the way contracts did in the old CBA!
