With the New York Jets reportedly shopping cornerback Darelle Revis, there’s a chance New York goes into next season without its most talented player. The potential for fallout is rich, and at least one voice from the wilderness is urging against a breakup.
The New York Jets hurt my fucking soul. I have been a fan of the team since I can remember. I don’t know why….they had no real credentials in the early 90’s when I decided they were my team of choice…..but what did I know….I was 10 years old. They have made bad move after bad move….and as a fan, you try to put a positive spin on it….but this possible trade of Darelle Revis is painful. He is the ONE absolute on that roster. I am not stupid…I know he is expensive, I know he fucks up the cap space…..but I still don’t want it to happen.
There has got to be a better way. There is no way trading your best player for unproven young blood makes sense. The Jets just released most of their defensive veterans. Bart Scott is gone. Calvin Pace is gone. Now you are talking about sending Revis packing?? There is a thin line between a “rebuilding year” and just sucking more than you already did. The Jets looked like shit last year. I’m not gonna argue that. They had a few glimmers of hope….but with the lack of a viable QB, they couldn’t perform past mediocrity. The defense was what kept the mediocrity from becoming a complete shit sandwich. So….let’s dismantle it??
I know there are numbers involved on the business end that I don’t know everything about. I am not going to pretend that I am completely up to speed in this department….I am not. I am not a GM. I am not a coach. I AM knowledgeable about the game of football. I AM a fan of a team that is quickly falling apart before my eyes. It is almost like they are having a veteran player fire sale. The quality players are walking out the door, only to bring in more mediocrity (David Garrard….What. the. actual. fuck?!?!). It is almost more difficult to watch than the Jets versus the Patriots in Week 12 (ass fumble game).
I don’t have all the answers. I am not going to pretend to. I just hope that the Jets front office can come up with a better solution than to send Revis packing. There has to be a better way. This is the life of a Jets fan…..fuck me.
