The Jets were not built to win by throwing the ball 40-50 times a game. We were built to win by dominating on defense and dominating with the ground game.
Therefore the fail Shonn Greene and the OL is far more damaging to the Jets than the fail of the QB. Because if we truly wanted our QB to play to the level of some of the best in the business, we have a funny way of showing it. Our WR's are weak, our TE can't stay healthy, and we don't have a reliable backfield receiving threat to bail us out on a broken play. The OC is clueless, the Tebow signing did more damage than good, you know the rest.
A great QB can hide the sins of the rest of the offense. No QB can hide the sins of Mike Tannenbaum.
