"No Jets QB Can Succeed, Because the Jets Offense Has No Talent"
The thread title is something we've all heard this offseason, often multiple times. Mike & Mike on ESPN both reiterated it (in different words) yet again this morning, in their post-Tebow Musings.
The question I'd like to ask......is this really true for 2013?
Does the 2013 Jets Offense REALLY have "no talent" around whomever wins the QB competition?
Let me lay out one possible (likely I'd say) Jets starting Offense.
When I look at this group, I don't see "no talent". I see alot of unknowns, but I don't see "no talent".
RB #1: Chris Ivory
RB #2: Mike Goodson
RB #3: Bilal Powell
FB/HB: Lex Hilliard/Tommy Bohanon
KR/PR: Joe McKnight
WR #1: Santonio Holmes
WR #2: Braylon Edwards (Not Signed Currently)
WR #3: Stephen Hill
WR #4: Jeremy Kerley
WR #5: Joe McKnight Perhaps in the new system?
TE #1: Jeff Cumberland
TE #2: Unknown, Maybe the Aussie Hayden Smith
OT: D'Brickishaw Furgeson
OG: Willie Colon/Oday Aboushi
OC: Nick Mangold
OG: Brian Winters/Vlad Ducasse
OT: Austin Howard
Is this a bonifide Super Bowl quality unit? No, of course not.
But can this unit, exempting the QB position, compete in the NFL and be competative vs. other teams Offenseive personel? Yes, I think it can.
I, for one, am getting tired of having the "other 10 guys" derided and abused as talentless suckbags, when the truth is, it all starts and ends with play at the QB position.
