Jets in turmoil entering off-season Long gone are the days off Rex Ryan's great defenses and all the hype surrounding the team. The last few years have been terrible as the Jets have been through 3 head coaches and almost a 4th. After parting ways with Ryan the Jets hired an unknown and very inexperienced coach. The results were as expected as the Jets finished 4-12 and picked in the top 10. Owner Woody Johnson let it be known that he expected a quick turnaround but a poor draft, failing confidence, and no strong leadership to right the ship forced the firing of the rookie coach after a 2-9 start. Coach Collins, who had some success in the AFC East in prior years, was called in to coach the team in the final five games. Despite going 0-5 the team seemed to respond as they were competitive in every game. It almost didn't matter as coach Collins actually received a pink slip at seasons end but instead of cleaning out his office he secured a meeting with the owner and negotiated new terms which gave him total control of the team in what is said to be a completely performance based contract. Though terms were not disclosed it is said Collins is only paid when the team wins, so theoretically the Jets could go 0-16 and he wouldn't make a dime. Entering the off-season coach Collins has let it be known this will be a different team. The Jets will be sending 25 plus players into free agency and will be working with 58 million in cap room. Geno Smith has fallen out of favor with the coach which means the Jets will be looking for starters at every skill position on offense. That combined with an aging defense makes this a major turn around for Collins who doesn't expect to become really competitive for a couple years. One thing is for sure, he better find a way to get some wins because rent is not cheap in New York. We will check back with the Jets after the off-season and see how this is all going to pan out.
