If the team doesn't suffer any major injuries this season and don't win at least 7-8 games, it's a total indictment of the CS, NOT JD. He listened to the CS and has gotten them the players and types of players they want. It is their job to put them into a position to succeed, have good game plans and execute. If the players aren't executing, it's on the players and the CS, again not on JD. JD hasn't made any head-scratching type picks and he has added very talented, athletic, faster players to the roster who love football and have great character. He hasn't added any lazy players, those who are playing just for the $s, hasn't signed a bunch of older/expensive FAs who don't really want to be here, and hasn't added players that have off-field issues or who would be problems/distractions in the lockerroom or on the field. We all know that the draft is a crap shoot. So is hiring a HC. You never know who will succeed and who will fail, but JD hired a HC who has a CEO-type mentality, who is inspirational, whom players respect and love and for whom they want to play. JD has secured extra picks with trades, gotten amazing return in trades, and great value with his FA additions. If JD has another great draft, and the team still struggles this season, anyone who tries to blame JD is flat out wrong and using poor judgment. No one likes their record, but after a decade of inept, awful, embarrassing FA periods and drafts, nothing better could have been expected. I think we could swap JD for any of the top GMs in the game when they first became a GM, and their record would have been no better with the Jets than JD's has been, and could have been a lot worse. Anyone who expected a better record with the awful and almost complete lack of talent on the roster simply isn't being realistic with his/her expectations.
