Greg McElroy is 100% the answer for the 2013 NY Jets
He was drafted for this reason and
will be the reason Rex and Tanny don't get fired.
Say what you will about Rex (actually please don't), but you MUST ADMIT he is undoubtedly one of the best defensive minds in all of football and will NEVER not be.
The Jets THRIVE ON DEFENSE and they believe in milking the clock & utilizing a power run-game... When those two click (great D, great run threat), it relieves pressure off the QB-- as you know, it helped Mark Sanchez immensely in his first two years; which in his defense, he's a very good PA qb & throws on the run too AND HIS OFFENSE DECLINED IN TALENT EVERY YEAR (not just stats)..
The Jets also never throw the ball down field.
Did you know the only QB that has thrown more INTs than Mark is ELI?! The reason for it is that Eli's picks are more often down field and on "timely risks". Eli led the NFL in 2011 in passes over 20+ yards (Mark was ranked 20th)..
Sanchez' playbook does not have nearly as many BIG time plays as Eli's and that's why when he throws a pick it's usually in horrendous timing AND a pick 6.
BUT WHATEVER!! Sanchez has gotten 0 help however his play has been pure dismal and he does not deserve to finish the season...
The Jets offense will thrive if they DONT TURN THE BALL OVER. They have an incredible defense (stop bringing up the Pats, they have Tom Brady and the best offense in the world- not to mention they cheat and we face them twice a year EVERY YEAR).
Greg McElroy WILL NOT turn the ball over. Our amazing defense + a good ground and pound + NO TURNOVERS by our QB = NY JET FOOTBALL.
Greg McElory has serious potential in NY and he damn sure knows how to win.
btw, if Tebow doesn't turn the ball over HE TOO could thrive on the Jets.. however Greg has earned the shot over Tebow.
