The New York Jets finally have a successful leadership regime in place that knows what it takes to succeed. They once again impressed during final roster cuts.

Hard work. Consistency. The will to do whatever it takes towards victory. These are just a small amount of the basic fundamentals when it comes to having success on a football team. Of course, there are many more principles that must be in place for the New York Jets to one day win a Super Bowl championship.

For what seems like years now, the Jets have always been considered the laughingstock of the NFL. Whether it was the butt fumble, giving birth to the era of Tom Brady on the New England Patriots, or signing lackluster talent, it’s not easy being a fan of the Jets for all these years.

Time heals all and well, hope is in the air. We’ve all been through this before but for once, the leadership regime of the Jets led by head coach Todd Bowles and general manager Mike Maccagnan have done a fantastic job so far. They’ve had solid draft classes, brought in quality talent via free agency, and best of all, aren’t afraid to release players regardless of their draft status or tenure on the team.

From releasing Quinton Coples, handling the punch heard around the world involving Geno Smith, and most recently parting ways with high draft picks Jace Amaro and Dee Milliner, this regime is all about making the right moves. It’s a refreshing sight to see that this leadership regime means business in fielding a competent team.

A team that is ready to battle for an opportunity to make a serious run towards a championship.

These kinds of moves send a stern message to the locker room in that if you’re not holding your weight, you’re on borrowed time.

While the business aspect of football can be cruel, it’s important that the Jets continue to do what is overall best for the franchise.

Previous regimes would keep sub-par players around and would not dare release any high draft picks for fear of looking like fools drafting busts that were described as such entering a draft.

Bowles and Maccagnan know that in order for this team to be a winner from top to bottom, it’s about having players that fit the system. The kind of players that at the very least, can be molded to their high expectations.
