I really do love Jets fans. We are such a miserable bunch. Ever the ultimate pessimists. You know what, though? It may actually be warranted this go-around. I’m pretty sure our 2013 Jets are going to be even tougher to watch then last year. That’s is a frightening thought. The good news is that Gang Green fans are very much looking forward to free agency and expressing great hope in how a few key moves could make a difference.
In fact, the Jets asked their faithful on Facebook just what they were most pressing needs. To be more specific, they asked Jets fans to fill in the blanks on the following:
Free agency begins tomorrow. The Jets most pressing need should be .
The responses were predictable, yet still awesome. In the first seven hours, we’re up to about 3,200 comments or so. What follows are some of my personal favorites. Granted, I haven’t had the time to peruse them all. Oh, you clever Jets fans!
“fire management” (many shared a similar sentiment)
“An enima ( I can’t spell , but I think you get the picture )”
“Everything but u guys will be idiots and do nothing”
“every position” (many variants on this one)
“finding love in a hopeless place”
“Offense, defense and special teams” (not original, but said so succinctly)
“A quarterback that doesn’t suck” (a good idea)
And my favorite, because it’s simple, straightforward and so very true.
Yes, Jets. I know there are so many priorities. Picking one is quite the challenge. I say go with this last one, though. It’s a good jumping off point.
BEST OF MAXIM
Mike Devito and Sione Pouha are gone. Laron Landry is visiting the Colts and the impending doom that Revis Island is on his way out hangs over the fan base like a guillotine. David Garrard is now a Jet. Affordable “Upside potential” players like Mike Goodson and Brandon Gibson are coming to visit.
That may not enough for some
Jet fans but they better get used to it. Rebuilding...

The New York Jets have a handful of issues lying at their front door. In addition to having a lackluster offense, they’re major concern seems to be focused around the quarterback position.

The Tim Tebow talk is at an all time low, but those in the business still feel the need to offer their opinion. Bill Polian was a successful NFL general manager for many years, and now as an analyst for ESPN, knows a thing or two about football.

Receiver Santonio Holmes is staying with the Jets after restructuring his contract, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.Fantasy Spin:Holmes has been a malcontent over the last two years had only played four games in 2012 before a foot sprain ended his season. New York will have the same QB issues in 2013 so we aren't high on Holmes' fantasy prospects.
