I understand that there was a chasm between Sanchez and Mac or tebow in skills and that is why they didn't play. But why didn't those backups play more if you think it is addition by subtraction? They played because they were better than the players behind them.
The point is they did play . Both Demario Davis and Macntyre did get a lot of reps but in my mind not enough. We all know Rex has been too loyal to his aging vets for too long. The cap will dictate that his old pals Pace & Scott are gone, and I'd be highly surprised that BT doesn't go along with them. Its no secret the Jets LBers were among the slowest in the league. Davis, Mcyntyre plus a FA or draft choice can give this unit a shot in the arm and watch the effectiveness of David Harris pickup as well
