EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Maybe he's just being cautious, but new Jets GM Joe Douglas wasn't ready to guarantee a playoff berth on Saturday night. He wouldn't even commit to meaningful games in September. He preferred to keep his hopes to himself.
And maybe that's good, because the more Douglas spoke, the more this much was clear: No matter how good anyone thinks the Jets are right now, there's still a lot of work left to do.
The good news, though, is Douglas believes there's still time left and opportunities for him to do it. During a surprise press conference a few hours before the Jets took on the Saints in the third preseason game on Saturday night, the rookie GM discussed holes on his roster at corner, receiver and edge rusher, for starters.
