1. Re-hire another offensive coordinator: Hiring Sparano as the offensive coordinator was a bad move in my opinion. I think it was more of a personality move, because Sparano is well liked around the league. However, his offenses with the Dolphins were far from great, and most times just bad. Rex Ryan clearly made this move to get back to old-fashioned ground and pound football, but that's not today's NFL. Sorry, Sparano.

2. Get a starting right tackle: I don't care who it is, but the Jets need an upgrade. Mark Sanchez was sacked a career-high 39 times in 2011, and Wayne Hunter was a big part of that. With multiple Pro Bowlers already on the Jets' line, a solid left tackle would make the line elite again.

3. Get a receiver: The Jets' passing game is weak and they need a serviceable receiver alongside Santonio Holmes. A cheap veteran option may be the only way to go considering the cap situation and the needs at other positions.

4. Draft or sign a potential starter to compete with Mark Sanchez: This is the last chance he gets. This will be Sanchez's fourth year and if he doesn't take a major step forward, I think it's time to move on. Signing a Chad Henne or even drafting a second or third-round quarterback wouldn't be the worst idea in the world. Make Sanchez work for it.

5. Get a veteran wide receiver: They have to. The Jets have to be in win-now mode with the age of their team. They need a second receiver to help out Sanchez. Maybe a receiving running back to help in the passing game? That might be what Sanchez needs.

6. Go after Peyton Hillis: I think Hillis can do what Rex Ryan wants and that's pound the ball up the middle. The guy is a tank. If Peyton can get back to form, having him and Shonn Green as a one-two punch would really help elevate this offense back to what it was a couple years ago. I would also consider drafting  a possible running back option. Maybe target a more speedy back to compliment Green.

7. Let Nike have fun with the uniforms!: To many fans, the Jets have very boring, bland uniforms. If I'm running the Jets, I'm telling Nike to draw up some proposals on some sweet new gear. It would increase jersey sales and excite the fan base.
