Tanny and Rex.
A move supported almost universally by Jets Fans and talent evaluators at the time. I should know, I questioned it here and was roundly crushed for it.
It was logical. The team at the time had no QB, and needed one, and he was the best on offer in our range. I don't fault them for the choice.
If Favre doesn't get hurt, that team that year was absolutely a legitimate contender. Only his injury stopped a deep run. How quickly folks forget the details.
More revionism. Kendall was close to done (remind you of anyone?) and cost far more than he was worth, and did bupkis in the league once he was gone.
Pennington got hurt because Pennington was an fragile china egg. He was what he was.
Damned if you do, damned if you don't. Fans lynch Tanny when he dumps an expensive past-his-prime lineman, and lynch him if he keeps a past-his-prime lineman.
Fans, comfortable in their 20/20 hindsight, always knew best....they just didn't say so til afterwards.
Please, get the Pats penis envy out of here, it's not becoming.
The Pats win because of two things. Brady. And Bellichek. The rest is details, and not even great details at that. They got a few great choices (same as us) and many, many, mnay clunkers (far more than us). For every brilliant Pats pick, we have one as well....which doesn't speak much to the Pats 100 draft picks a year tactic.
Difference is, they have Brady throwing to these guys and scoring 35 a game.
Probably the first year we have a losing record under Rex.
Which won't be 2012.
I'd say next season is the make-or-break in Woody's mind. Better than 8-8 AND a playoff birth, or Rex, Tanny and Bradway are gone and a new regime in.
So....I guess we can count you in rooting against us again next year too?
