Bringing your daily links to the NFL’s New York Jets

NFL: New York Jets at Buffalo Bills Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning, Gang Green Nation! I hope everyone’s having a great start to their day. It’s pretty amazing to see the content and quality of articles essentially drop off a cliff when the headlines aren’t writing themselves.

This is the first time in a long time I’ve had to question my loyalty to the dysfunctional atrocity known as the New York Jets. Regardless of how you feel, this past week has shown an extreme lack of competence from ownership, which is honestly startling. Maccagnan had to go, period. But the entire sequence of events leaves nothing but a bad taste in my mouth, and it really shows how clueless Chris Johnson is in his role. At this point it’s pretty close to beating a dead horse, but these guys have literally no one to blame but themselves at this point. If a common fan can see through the ineptitude of Maccagnan 2 years ago, why couldn’t ownership? Why wait and allow Mike Maccagnan to go through the draft, and free agency—signing players to long term deals—if he wasn’t going to be a part of the ‘future’. It’s easy for some to look past this because of their hatred for Maccagnan, and as his biggest ‘hater’, I should probably feel the same—but I don’t. Even the Buttfumble debacle didn’t embarrass me this much because at least Mark was trying to make a play due to the RB’s incompetence to realize it was a run play. This? There’s no excuse for this, and there really won’t be. If fans were so quick to put out banners and billboards previously, why not start targeting the Johnson’s? With them at the helm, I really don’t see this franchise ever making it to the next level. And with that depressing outre, here are your links for the team to start your weekday off.
