Coming into this season, it looked like the Jets may have found a long-term answer in Geno Smith. Smith has had a sophomore slump, struggling with poor decisions and off the field blunders. Smith has thrown at least one interception in each game, and has just looked lost at times. Going into this offseason, what will the Jets be thinking? If Smith finishes strong, they may give him another year and try to build around him in the draft and free agency. If he finishes very poorly, could they invest a first rounder in a quarterback like Marcus Mariota. Idzik and the Jets need to see how Geno Smith holds himself together this season.
Rex Ryan forever enshrined himself into Jets history when he led his first two teams both to the AFC championship game. Since then Ryan has not made the playoffs, and this season appears to be when he has hit rockbottom. Will general manager John Idzik finally look to change this team's identity or will he give Rex the excuse of lack of talent. It looks to be heading in the direction of Rex being gone unless he can really go on a run here to end the season.
The Jets figured to have a solid offensive line heading into the season, but instead it has become a mess. The guards have especially be an issue for this team. Second year starting guard Brian Winters is not out for the season with a torn ACL and veteran Willie Colon has struggled and was also injured in the Broncos game. The Jets need to figure out if they have a starting guard heading forward on this team in a guy like Aboushi or Dozier, or if they will have to invest a lot into the position during the off-season.
