Will Kellen Clemens be a Jet for the 2010 season?
We all (me as well) though it impossible....but he's not cut yet.
Is there a chance that despite what we think of him (i.e. sucky failure) that Shotty and Co. are higher on him as the #2 than we could imagine?
I have to admit, you all know I fall for QB's like Clemens (Ramsey for example), but I came to agree with the majority that he is unworthy, given the opportunities he's had and how little he's done with them (a la Ramsey and so many like them).
But with that said, I am kinda shocked he is still on the team, and wasn't simply outright cut. We've seen the market....he has no value, does he?
So why is he still here? Is it possible he could be a Jets for 2010, which would almost guarantee he would remain the #2?
I wouldn't have thunk it, but....
Better the Devil you know
Even though Clemens hasn't shown much, the idea of having him around another season isn't all that bad. With our offense based on a sound running game the need for a game manager is that is required. I know he looked horrible during the Tampa game, but he did just enough to win.

Now this is all based on the idea that Ainge or O'Connell havent proved to the coaching staff they are ready.
If one or both are ready, then I believe Clemens will be gone during Training camp or just before.
Dealing players for value
I have seen this alot lately, but it has been used on players who have no value. I said in a previous post that if clemens is signed by another team you let him go.
but realistically none of our QB's have any value whatsoever. Ainge and O'connell have taken very few regular season snaps and clemens has had a rough time when he does step in to QB.
What value would we get for these players at this point? We can hope that Holmgren goes on vacation and while he is away Mangini deals with us, or we find some other sucker out there.
NFL trades are more complex than people think. Logically speaking, If we think clemens stinks so bad, (and at times he has stunk up the place) then why do we think someone, (other than mangini), will pony up any type of trade value for him.
ok vent over.
