Jets must find a franchise quarterback and soon
By Angelina Rizzo
Make no mistake about it, the New York Jets need to find a franchise quarterback and soon. They won’t go far anytime soon unless they address the most important position on the team.
The New York Jets need to improve in quite a few different areas this offseason, and one of these important areas they need to focus on is the Quarterback position.
The Jets could go after a cornerback. They could do many things that would help this struggling team out greatly. Their offensive line could benefit from any new additions, that area is definitely one that could be strengthened quite a bit. The area that really and truly needs a huge boost is the quarterback position, which is surely not a surprise at all.
Now that Ryan Fitzpatrick is out of the picture, the Jets need to figure out who will be an efficient and productive quarterback to lead them to the roads of victories, and hopefully the NFL Playoffs. They haven’t had that for a while.

In the grand scheme of things, they are due for that. With talks heating up about having seasoned and well-experienced quarterback Jay Cutler coming to play in New York, things still have not fallen into place, because nothing is final yet.
Quite honestly, no real answer at quarterback doesn’t scream confidence heading into next season. A good and solid quarterback is vital and is the key to a team’s success and actually winning football games. It makes all the difference to have a leader that develops into a true franchise quarterback with weapons around him.
Fitzpatrick was good his first season, but he couldn’t step up and finish what he had started the following year. His time is certainly over with the Jets. Geno Smith has not been a very great help at all either. The Jets did not start Christian Hackenberg, who still needs time.

The Jets are being very careful with him, which is a very good decision but again, nothing to get excited for come next season. If the Jets want to be a contending team with the chance to go all the way next season, they need to solidify in many areas but most importantly, who exactly will be under center. Hopefully, they make the right choices this offseason because either they need to go with their in-house options or go all in on someone that can finally make the Jets contenders again in the future.
