Open up the offense some and perhaps that non NFL QB you refer to may actually pay dividends. The Jets haven't had an offensive minded focus since Bruce Coslett, its time to catch up with the NFL rule changes .
I agree 100% that Ground n pound is not the key to todays NFL.
Still, a change in philosophy (to an aerial attack focus) with Mark Sanchez and the WR corps of 2012 could have been even worse than what transpired.
Im over bashing Sanchez, but i just dont think the Jets can "open it up" with Mark leading the helm. This is precisely the reason i have SOJF outlook on the 2013 season already. I can accept and at least TRY to interpret any and all offseason moves, but until Mark and his contract are gone, i fear no Coordinator, HC, or GM will be able to polish this turd into a diamond.
