It’s a balancing act

NFL coaches and players want to win every time they take the field.

And of course the GM wants to win as well, but he also needs to think long-term and build the program the right way.

So how does Jets GM Joe Douglas manage this quandary?

“It’s a good question because it is really my job to stay out in front and see a big picture,” said Douglas. “This staff is focused on win now, but we’re all focused on win now, but we’re all focused on doing what’s best for this organization this year and in the future.”

And while Jets coach Robert Saleh wants to win every time he coaches a game, the coach agrees with Douglas, that the Jets need to build their program the right way, and not cut corners.

“I know Coach, and what I’ve been preaching really since I’ve been here, we want to do this the right way.,” Douglas said. “We want to build this foundation the right way so that it’s a long-term success and not just a flash in the pan.”

While it’s challenging, it is possible to reconstruct a team, and still win while your doing it.

We will see if the 2021 Jets can accomplish that.
