NY Jets: How Long Is Your Rope?

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

The Jets haven’t been to the playoffs since 2010, and have had only one winning season in that time. The current regime is only partially responsible for that poor run, having only come aboard two and a half years ago. At some point the team must start winning again or heads will roll. Here’s a two part question regarding that issue.

First, how many more years without a playoff berth must the Jets go before you wouldn’t object to making a change at the general manager position? I realize many may also blame the head coach and the owner, but for this article we’re only concerned with the general manager.

Second, how many years would it take before you are convinced a change is necessary? You may think those are the same questions, but they’re not. In the first case we’re talking about possibly being willing to go either way. You might be willing to let things play out another year or two, but you would not be upset if a change is made. You recognize the value of stability, but also acknowledge growing doubts to the point they are close to outweighing the positives of staying the course. Essentially you’re on the fence, OK with either alternative, but moving towards making a change.

In the second case all hope is lost, you are no longer OK with any of it, and the general manager must go immediately. There is no more uncertainty, no more willingness to let things play out; the change must be made.

How long is your rope for Mike Maccagnan? Let us know in your comments.
