A Franchise QB makes a difference.
Since the end of last season i have made my feeling known about what i believe the problem was/is within this Jet organization. That being the trio of Jokers (GM,HC,QB) that make up the leadership of the Jet franchise as it relates to the football team.
With all that being said, I could deal with Rex coming back, and i could even deal with him being instructed by Mike Tannenbaum as the GM. The 1 thing i cannot deal with is having Mark Sanchez back as the starting QB of my beloved Franchise.
I offer into evidence 3 situations that should clarify my reasoning . The Indy Colts was a terrible team last yr and it's star receiver was being talked about as having lost what he previously had. Enter QB Andrew Luck, the team is in playoff contention and the Star receiver is once again being held in the highest regard only 1 yr later. Furthermore, I give you the Pittsburg Steelers,a team on the upswing after a terrible start in playoff contention before losing starting QB Big Ben. 2 games later, the team looks like a bunch of misfits who can't get put of their own way. Lastly, i offer the Chicago Bears a team on it's way to winning the NFC North for the 2nd year in a row. Last yr this team lost it's starting QB and folded like a cheap suit. This yr,the same team loses it's QB for 2 games due to a concussion and you would think the bears were an expansion team.
You may say it takes more than a QB, but i have offered 3 situations that prove beyond the shadow of a doubt what the importance of a quality QB can do to a team. The NYJets have talent,but it has no QB. Could the Talent be better, of course ,but there's enough talent on this team to have enabled it to win 3 games in blowout fashion against teams that have played solid games against some of our oponents.
In an ideal world,i would like to see a coaching staff and Front office void of Rex and Tannenbaum. Get rid of Mark Sanchez and i could deal with the other 2. Since the other 2 boobs don't want to, then i say get rid of all 3.
