We all agree... HOWEVER,
This is the difference IMO
1) Rex/Jets would never have drafted Wilson.
2) if Wilson were forced on him, rex wouldn't play him (See Woodhead)
Even the Tuna was forced with his back against the wall to play and then acknowledge that Romo was a gamer.
Pete is a very good coach, this QB makes all the difference. Pete, like Harbaugh, made a tough decision and won. rex wont do that.
