Jetsfan0099 Icon : (23 January 2015 - 09:21 PM) Bad hire, the 49ers are seriously downgrading in coach. Going from Harbuagh to Tomsula, now Fangio to Mangini
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (23 January 2015 - 10:06 PM) Lol wow
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 08:17 AM) I hate when people say mangini built our team, I didn't know he was gm. Tannenbaum was good at making moves

The Jets are hiring Bears nat'l scout Rex Hogan as their director of college scouting. Chicago has released him from his contract
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 07:40 PM) @AlbertBreer 14m14 minutes ago
The Jets are also hiring Rams scout Brian Heimerdinger to a prominent front-office role. St. Louis let him out of his deal.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 07:48 PM) Heimerdinger is our director of player personnel now
ganggreen2003 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 08:12 PM) That is Mike Heimerdinger's son who used to be our OC in 05
ganggreen2003 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 08:12 PM) hopefully his son isn't as horrible as his pop was at play calling
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 08:17 PM) Everyone looks like a bad playcaller when you have no QB and have no talent
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 08:18 PM) When Heimerdinger was our OC it was when we had a ton of injuries on offense, were down to our 4th or 5th string QB
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 08:42 PM) FIRE HOGAN
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (24 January 2015 - 08:42 PM) FIRE HEIMERDINGER

Mr_Jet Icon : (Yesterday, 06:47 PM) Thanks Obama.
Mr_Jet Icon : (Yesterday, 06:49 PM) But really for all of you complaining about the site. What is there to talk about? We have a new GM and HC that we don't know how good or bad they'll be yet. So there really isn't much to talk about with the draft still months away.
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 09:59 PM) Even I can't blame Obama :drinks:
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 11:42 PM) It could be worse
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 11:42 PM) we could be Phinzrage

HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 09:43 AM) HIRE MR JET
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 11:17 AM) There are some good OGs available in FA, we have to sign one
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 11:18 AM) Willie Colon was rated as one of the worst in football last season. So was Winters. Oday shows promise
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 11:18 AM) Orlando Franklin, Mike Iupati, Clint Boling. Should sign one
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 12:34 PM) Franklin or Iupati would be great
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Today, 01:46 PM) hey reg how did you make out in this storm?

Free-agency preview: Jets Teams

Will Darrelle Revis be back in a Jets uniform next season? (USATSI)

Team overview: There will be an air of change for the Jets in 2013 -- whether for better or worse remains to be seen. New York replaced its general manager and both coordinators after a 6-10 season that included three straight losses to close out the season and a feeling of disarray surrounding the franchise. Marty Mornhinweg will attempt to change the offense from its ground-and-pound philosophy to a more open, passer-friendly attack. Dennis Thurman -- the new defensive coordinator -- spent last season as the team's secondary coach. He'll be tasked with shoring up a front that was near the bottom of the league in rushing yards allowed. And GM John Idzik is on the hunt for players to fill out the roster -- and he's apparently shopping some of the Jets' best players, as well.

What the depth chart tells you: The Jets need skill players in the worst way. As much as the offense became a laughing-stock, the O-line was actually one of the best in the NFL according to ProFootballFocus.com. The problem was the ineffectiveness of quarterback Mark Sanchez, running back Shonn Greene and a host of middling wide receivers. Greene and tight end Dustin Keller will become unrestricted free agents March 12, so deciding what to do with them will be one of Idzik's first major decisions.

In terms of additions, the Jets absolutely must acquire more skill, althouth there's not a ton of talent on the open market available. New York did claim wide receiver Braylon Edwards late last season (though he will be an unrestricted free agent, as well) and, should the front office let Greene go, the door could open for running backs Bilal Powell and perhaps the speedy Joe McKnight.

Ideal free agency and draft strategy: So, yes, the Jets need skill players. Beyond that, Idzik and the front office have been active in trying to find some quarterback competition for Sanchez. Tim Tebow will be released, it appears, and that leaves Greg McElroy and Matt Simms to challenge Sanchez. Brady Quinn and David Garrard are names that have been bandied about to add some depth at quarterback, but don't be surprised if New York takes a QB in the draft, though their first-round pick will likely be used on a big name defensive end or outside linebacker to shore up the run defense.

Beyond that, the Jets will likely focus on what to do with cornerback Darrelle Revis and safety LaRon Landry, with Landry set to become an unrestricted free agent. Still, priority No. 1 must be bringing in some help on offense to surround Sanchez, whether that means re-signing Edwards or taking a flyer on a free agent like Danny Amendola -- or both.

What will happen: The Jets have plenty of need -- but not plenty of money. Their projected cap figure leaves them just $8 million under, so there isn't much wiggle room. They will free some space by releasing Tebow and perhaps bring in a big name by trading Revis -- as difficult as that may be -- but will it be enough to make a difference? Chances are they'll add a few names on offense to complement Sanchez, but it appears that Greene and Keller -- though the tight end has said he wants to stick around -- will be in different uniforms next year.

In sum, it could be a new-look team, but the same result.
