New York Jets Among Fox Sports' Top Ten Organizations

Fox Sports did a rating of organizations in the NFL. The Jets finished tenth.

Remember, this is NOT a power ranking. We grade each team on six vital categories — owner, quarterback, head coach, front office, coaching staff and intangibles, which include facilities, fan support and public relations.

...

10. New York Jets: 46.5

Owner: 8
Quarterback: 7
Coach: 8
Front office: 9
Coaching staff: 8.5
Intangibles: 6

Coach Rex Ryan has successfully changed the culture with the Jets. The "same old Jets" are buried, replaced by Ryan's boastful guarantees. Mike Tannenbaum is an active and creative general manager who has built teams that have gone to the AFC title game in back-to-back years. QB Mark Sanchez, while still erratic at times, is a proven winner just two years into the league, with a whopping four playoff wins on the road. The facilities in Florham Park, N.J., are beautiful. The Jets' act of cutting salaries of football operations employees and imposing mandatory furloughs during the lockout is ugly.

I find it difficult to take seriously any rating that has little brother three spots ahead of the Jets considering Gang Green's vastly superior accomplishments on the field the past two years.

I normally find these lists to be silly, but this one really seems to take the cake. It arbitrarily says only six things matter in an organization, all of which matter equally, and assigns an equally arbitrary value to all of them.

Lists like these are in the eye of the beholder. It all depends on what you think matters most. I tend to think the Jets should rate higher than this, not that it makes much of a difference.

How about you?
