We knew the Jets wouldn’t be a playoff team in 2016. Unfortunately, the Jetsdidn’t, andit will be a long time before they can reach that level again.So much for bringing back quarterback Nathan Peterman Jersey Ryan Fitzpatrick to give their core of veteran players one last chance at a championship.That decision wasone of many short-sighted movesthat will continueto cost New Yorkfor several more seasons.MORE: Jets-Seahawks highlights, statsAt 1-3 with more brutal matchups on theirschedule ahead, the Jets need to think more about next year ... becausethey thought too much about this year.New York tried to playhardball with Fitzpatrickbut caved andgavehim a one-year, $12 million deal in July.Equally bad was the organization’strying to trade once very unhappy defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson, then givinghim a lucrative, long-term deal coming off a leg injury.That,despite the Rod Streater Jersey fact the Jets already had Geno Smith and Bryce Petty at quarterback, and also flushed away a second-round pick on predictably shaky rookie Christian Hackenberg. That,despite the factthe Jets had astud on standby in second-year first-rounder Leonard Williams on the defensive line.The Jetsalso piled more age on top of veterans such as Darrelle Revis (31), Brandon Marshall (32), David Harris (32) andNick Mangold (32) by bringing in left tackle Ryan Clady (30) and running back Matt Forte (30).Rookie first-round pickDarron Leeis providing linebackerdepth behind Harris and 30-year-old Erin Henderson, when they could have gone after Paxton Lynch. They then took Hackenberg when they could have had Dak Prescott one or two rounds later.WEEK 4 HUB: Scores, stats, highlightsSo the Jetsare stuck with Fitzpatrick andadamant about not benching him, so not to admit their big mistake and hoping the streaky bearded one can get back on track.They keepSmith with aroundno intent of further exploring whether he can make it as their QB.Really, that’s the theme of the entire team. It locked itself into the presentwith general manager Mike Maccagnan and coach Todd Bowles. Now, as Reggie Ragland Jersey  the lo ses and injuriespileon, the Jets are much closer to draftingin the top five than they are to finishing in the top six in the AFC.They have a lot of rebuilding work to do, and they’ve spentthemselves into oneof the NFL’s most salary-cap strapped teams.As Forte has said, there Andre Reed Jersey ‘s no easy fix to the me s.Piling on that harsh reality is the fact thatmost of the answers are not on the current roster.FANTASY: Top Week 5 waiver wire pickupsMarshall and other veterans are “willing to go down with the ship” with Fitzpatrick because they have no choice. This was their last good chance to be part of a winning team.But there’s a lot of delusion and not much grandeur in New York. For theJets, whowillneedto addre s almost every position in some way over the next two or three seasons,the nightmare has onlyjust begun.
