Every offseason, around this time, we start to drill down on the position groupings for the Jets as we start to think about free agency and the draft. So, in the spirit of our “Audibles” we wanted to hear your thoughts on each unit and what the Jets should consider addressing or leaving alone this offseason. Where do the Jets need to target during free agency, how will the Final Eight rules hamper this for the Jets? Where do they need to trim the fat? Are there any guys down the roster that you think could make an impact?
Next, the Quarterbacks…
For the first time since the winter of 2007, do we know who will be quarterbacking the Jets in the far-off season. Knowing that, Sanchez has to continue to work on some parts of his game, like screen passes, his continued decision-making under pressure, and reading both sides of the field, for instance. Beyond that, no real complaints from the starting spot. He’s a young QB honing his game.
The questions are who will sit behind him? One thing I know for sure, going the course of a season with FOUR quarterbacks is plain foolish, especially when one is Mark Sanchez. If the team had four scrubs, then fine, but that’s not the case at all. So what do the Jets do? Sign a veteran free agent (easier said than done this year) like Pennington to mentor Sanchez? Tender Clemens and allow him to continue one more year as a backup? What about Ainge? O’Connell? Can the Jets spin any of them into a draft pick or two?
