See, that's the reason why we're a bubble team right now and will most likely end up with a pick between 7-10.

We can't make the step to be a playoff team which demands consistent wins but we're not bad enough to be a bottom 5 team which demands consistent losses.

That was the Thrashers biggest problem and now is the Jets biggest problem.

How do you overcome this?

By having a good GM, drafting well and being in a successfully environment. And I have no doubt that the Jets do have all this and will have overcome this "bubble-team"-status in at least 3 years
