We know that the Jets have a lot of issues. They are far from being ready to go to the big game, at least from the view of most of us. They have to get better, and they have to get better soon. But with that said, we need to be careful as Jets fans. We need to be careful about what we wish for in order to get better.

Shawne Merriman was released recently by the Buffalo Bills. As we have talked about, he certainly has a good history of getting after the passer. There are a lot of good arguments that can be made for the Jets to sign this guy. More recently, it came to light that Maurice Jones-Drew, better known as MJD, is open to being traded from the Jaguars. Our very own and talented JETSerious talked about it in his piece, which you can read by clicking here.  Do yourself a favor and click the link and read, JETSerious, as he always does, makes a good argument, in favor of attempting to get Maurice Jones-Drew. After all, he did lead the league in rushing last year, he certainly wouldn’t hurt.

My take is this, we need to be careful as Jets fans. We must be careful of falling into what I call “Yankee Fan Syndrome”, to fix our team. It’s not always the best way.

Turn the page and I will explain what I mean.
