Johnson and Jets brass need to be brutally honest with each other

This is a big off-season for the Jets, and they need to approach it with eyes wide open.

The Jets’ new owner Christopher Johnson is a very positive guy, and that is a good thing in life, but not always the case in NFL roster evaluation.

After the season, Johnson said about his team’s 2017 campaign, “I think some young stars emerged and an extraordinary core emerged.”

With all due respect to Mr. Johnson, to call the Jets’ core “extraordinary” might be a little strong.

The Jets have a lot of holes and a ton of work to do this off-season.

They need a #1 cornerback, a dominating edge-rusher, a QB-of-the-future candidate (in case Christian Hackenberg doesn’t emerge), a coverage linebacker and more. In other words, they need a lot of pieces to take the next step.

So while the Jets did some positive things in 2017, they have a tremendous amount of work to do to improve the roster in 2018.

And in order to do this, they need to be brutally honest about their core, which is okay, but not great.

As Bill Parcells always said, “You are what your record says you are.”
