Solid football moves were the reason the Jets were able to improve their roster and finish at 10 and 6. Today the Pro Football Writers of America recognized the excellent job that Mike Maccagnan performed and selected him as NFL Executive of the Year.

Maccagnan has plenty of work cut out for him and the upcoming draft could define his tenure here. The good news is Mike Maccagnan is already in draft mode. You can also hear Mike Maccagnan talk about the state of the team in this interview.
Maybe next year will be the year, but for now we will have to rely on the Super Bowl Commercials for entertainment. Keep the faith Jets fans.
