The entire NY Jets regime is on the hot seat entering the 2024 season. When the Jets made the decision to trade for Aaron Rodgers last offseason, they did so with the expectation that they'd be competing for a Super Bowl with him leading the way.
Injuries prevented that from happening in 2023, but the excuses will be limited this year. The Jets must capitalize on their small Super Bowl window and compete for a championship next season.
Unfortunately, the return of Rodgers doesn't solve everything. The Jets have a host of roster holes entering the offseason that the team must address if they're to maximize their potential in 2024.
Let's take a look at four moves the Jets must make if they're to reach the Super Bowl next season.
4. The NY Jets must develop an offensive identity
The Jets' offensive coaching was, quite frankly, an unmitigated disaster in 2023. In their defense, Nathaniel Hackett and company deserve some slack for having to rebuild their entire offense after the Rodgers injury.
Hackett and the Jets constructed an offense around Rodgers throughout the summer, only for that plan to be thrown away after just four plays. Still, that's not an excuse for the disgusting display of offensive football we saw last season.
The Jets had no offensive identity. Part of that is on the inept quarterback play the team received. Part of that is on a slew of offensive line injuries and a lackluster skill position group. But part of that is absolutely on the coaching staff.
With Rodgers returning in 2024, the Jets need to once again build their offense around the four-time MVP. If that means Hackett takes a backseat role to his favorite quarterback, then so be it.
