King P Posted March 3, 2017 Share Posted March 3, 2017 Quote Don’t kill the messenger, but top brass of the New York Jets privately admitted today they don’t expect to put a winning product on the field for at least two years. And while this may be obvious to most, it is a startling admission from a team struggling to fill its new stadium with fans. The current situation has little to do with general manager Mike Maccagnan. For years former general manager Mike Tannenbaum traded away early draft capital and multiple picks at a time for aged veterans such as receivers Santonio Holmes and Braylon Edwards. Tannenbaum did much the same in order to move up in the draft and select quarterback Mark Sanchez as well as running back Shonn Greene. The plan almost worked, as the team assembled by Tannenbaum and coached by Rex Ryan went to successive AFC title games. The Tannenbaum era was followed by two disastrous drafts from his replacement John Idzik Jr. in which little was gained, despite a year when the franchise had multiple first-round picks followed by a draft which featured 12 selections. http://draftanalyst.com/combine-report-32-free-agency-rumors-more Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
