I am not a rah rah person but there are many reason why it is a great time to be a Jets fan. 2 years ago the Jets started a rebuild. I view the trade up for Darnold as grudgingly acknowledging that a rebuild was necessary. If you look at where this franchise is now as compared to when Macagnan wanted to sign Kirk Cousins the Jets are in a much better position. In a way Cousins deserves thanks as he apparently told Macagnan the Jets did not have the talent to win. I view drafting Darnold as the start of a rebuild that has gone very well in spite of Macagnan. This rebuild has gone better than past rebuilds and better than other teams in the rebuilding stage. Look at the state of the NYG when the Jets drafted Darnold and tell me the Jets are not farther ahead. The Jets are set at HC- look what the Giants- a team that started a rebuild at the same time as the Jets went through with Shurmer. At least the Jets have their guy and he is the right guy. The Giants started a rebuild and now have a huge question mark at HC. The Jets are set at QB. For the first time since Pennington, the Jets have a talented young player at the QB position without any question marks. We are not waiting on Glenn Foley like in past times. Go around the NFL- if a team starts a rebuild and two years later has a future HOF coach and franchise QB they are doing well. The defense is anchored by a future HOFer. The defense as an outstanding coordinator and a number of young players like Q. Williams, who although is a bust as far as # 3 picks go, will be a contributor for a number of years. The Jets need an Edge rusher and will get one in FA. This will put the Jets defense in the top 5. Since the rebuild started it has gone well. Go back to the beginning- if after drafting Sam you were told that in two years Macagnan would be gone, Sam would lead a 7-9 team with one of the most talented young coaches in the league and the Jets would have a defense ranked where it is and most people would be very happy with where this is going. We all like to point out the mistakes but at this point in time the Jets are in a rare position where they started a rebuild and 2 years in things are still going well and we are seeing progress.
