Jets expect 10 new starters come season opener

New York Jets fans have reason to celebrate this season; their team is not going to be the same ole-same ole this season but it could very well be the same ole-same ole.  What the Jets have done is dump contracts and filled positions with elder veterans with one-year deals.  While this looks like a step in the right direction this season, don’t expect the Jets to be much, if any better.

“We’ve got a ton of stuff to improve on,” Head Coach Rex Ryan said recently.  “We know that. So this is just the beginning of the process. But again, I’m happy with how we went through the OTAs and mandatory camp, really all (of) the phase one, two and three of the offseason program.”

The “Process” began in 2007 when the Jets hired away Seahawks Sr. Director of Football Operations John Idzik Jr. to become Vice President of Football Administration.  After a dismal 2012/13 season, the Jets fired GM Mike Tannenbaum and replaced him with Idzik who began the cleaning up process.

We’re just going to take it a meeting at a time, a practice at a time, a day at a time, a week at a time and keep pushing it forward and getting better,” Idzik said on Twitter.  “I believe that’s happened this offseason. I think our fans have seen that this offseason in some of the moves we’ve made.”

The Jets open the season at home against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on September 8, 2013.  Be sure to get your tickets!
