How Can Jets Fans Balance Short Term Hopes With Long Term Priorities?

NFL: Buffalo Bills at New York Jets Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

It is a question I have been asked a lot. It is a question that has picked up steam in the last week. How does a fan reconcile a desire for his or her team to have success with a desire to see that team get a top Draft pick and select a franchise altering player?

There aren’t any right or wrong answers. Each fan must find his or her own path and figure out a way to prioritize.

This is a dilemma many Jets fans find themselves in. The team does not have many realistic prospects for success in the short term. The team needs a quarterback. There might be some good ones available at the top of next year’s Draft. What is a fan to do?

We talk about it today on the podcast. I offer some advice on how to deal with it and what to consider.
