exactly. i took some pride as a fan in the mentality the jets showed. i don't mind close losses in tough games, i don't mind if they fuck up a draft every once in a while, but the complete lack of any effort on the part of the owner, GM, coaching staff and players just pisses me off.
if they're tanking on purpose, they should let the fans know and not let any of the sparse talent on the team get injured.
jets fans, from what i've seen, are very willing to accept multiple lost years for a proper rebuild, but they need to be up front about doing that and hang on to the pieces they do have. instead they plug a hole on left tackle by getting becton and create a new hole by refusing to pay anderson and trading some other legitimate players.
