If true, Rex is even dumber than stated here so far.
(agree with your "even dumber" statement)
Even if he could come in, he's in street clothes and hasn't warmed up. There's no warning when your qb goes down so he would either have to put Tebow in until Mac is ready or.. (nothing).
I just don't understand what he was thinking. I'm sure the Jets have an "emergency qb" like the Patriots had Troy Brown in case everyone goes down but to only have one healthy qb suited up on game day is beyond illogical IMHO.
