It’s been a long time since I’ve been marred by bat fumbles and five-win seasons, draft busts, and sulky head coaches.
It’s not just that the New York Jets have gone a decade without making the playoffs, the parade of humiliation over the past few decades has been not just on-field losses, but off-field absurdities.Foot Fetish Videos . sexting scandal. A fight in the locker room. mom friend.
The Jets reportedly boarded an army of coaches, team executives and even team owner Woody Johnson on a private plane and flew to California for a face-to-face meeting with Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers. increase.
Maybe New York can convince Rogers to play for the Jets and open a trade with the Packers.
If nothing else, the Jets have gone all out in every conceivable way to pursue a four-time MVP quarterback who they believe could be an immediate contender in the AFC.
A non-serious franchise suddenly became very serious.
With an overwhelming defense, lots of young talent, and a responsible and serious head coach, they’re not just hoping that this postponed opportunity to make something happen will actually come together. trying to make it happen.
They’re not just heading west to convince Rogers that the franchise is worthy of his talent and leadership, or that he can thrive by ending his career in another shade of green. They will make it difficult for him to say no to them.
Rogers’ landing comes at a cost. Not only is he reportedly obliged to pay $58 million next season (presumably with Green Bay to share the cost), but the Packers will demand hefty compensation through players and draft picks.
New York doesn’t seem to care. It’s been in the water too long and has spent far too many seasons as an orchid or bottom dweller to worry about being too aggressive.
The Jets won just seven games last season, but they had a lot of potential.
The defense allowed the fourth-lowest number of points in the league, earning three stars to a first- or second-placed All-Pro team. This includes Defensive Rookie of the Year Source Gardner. He looks like the second coming of Darrell Revis in a time when the Jets really mattered.
Despite wide receiver Garrett Wilson being named Offensive Rookie of the Year, the problem was the offense. New York has been held back by the insane play of his No. 2 pick quarterback Zach Wilson in his 2021 NFL Draft.
Zack Wilson was a classic Jets mistake, with some exorbitant pro day throws and weak competition after the COVID-19 pandemic prevented his BYU team from playing major conference opponents. I was tricked by the senior year game tape.
But what New York is trying to do is what any good franchise does. Maybe Wilson can rebound and still be something. We won’t put this roster in jeopardy just hoping that happens next season.
After all, these are the Jets still waiting for the next Joe Namath.
Instead, they used all means to track down Rogers and the Packers. It’s finally time for the final episode.
According to ESPN, Woody Johnson’s plane included Johnson himself, general manager Joe Douglas, head coach Robert Saleh and offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett.
Rogers is a wild card, quirky and unpredictable. He has been reflecting on his future in recent times through discussions on his dark lair and podcasts. He loves attention and he drags out decisions, even though he says he doesn’t want to drag out decisions. All this, this whole gesture, seems to speak to him.
Then it might get bigger. It could be grand. This time around, it may show that the Jets are finally serious among all the franchises.
About Rogers’ Landing. About winning games. And maybe more.
