And Norv Turner as the O.C. ( like I threw that one in) . Little foreshadowing The Jets will make a deep playoff run. Woody get on this.
No I'm not calling out Stafford. I'm talking about the whole draft in general. So he was the one good pick available, out of the question for the Jets, who still isn't "elevating his teammates to the SB". I'm saying it was a lousy year overall. Even though he's the exception his team still isn't going anywhere. You can blame them for taking Sanchez at 5 but there weren't a ton of options. You should be able to find a QB without having a 1-15 record and in '09 that just doesn't seem like it was possible.
