The problem with the majority of you now fretting and hating, you all immediately thought this was a direct move to replace Hunter, some of you already had Hunter cut.
The truth probably lies in the area that the team KNOWS what they were getting or got in Otah, and considered him a reclamation project to resurrect his career, and for the longterm at the position on the team.
Does anybody really think Tannenbaum and the front office didn't do their homework on this? Tannenbaum and the Jets front office since his hiring are known for their extensive work on player backgrounds, whether through the draft or in FA. Sometimes risks are taken, sometimes players like Holmes become available, and the player just has too much talent not to give it a shot for only a 5th round pick.
Nobody is saying the Jets didn't do their homework. Well all know this team signed him hoping they could get him healthy and have him replace Hunter.
So if we know they really want to replace Hunter, why not have dealt with this in free agency and have brought in a real starter who's healthy? Like a Winston who would have cost the same money as Hunter and Otah combined.
If Hunter starts and does fail, which is very realistic and possible, this could be a major major F'up and cost the team the season and people their jobs. Most who talk up Sanchez blame Hunter for our QB's poor season.
Please dont tell me all is ok on the RT front. Front offices make mistakes and over look certain areas of the team. RT could be one of them. This is a realistic concern.
