Tebow didn't show drastic improvement. He struggled in practice and Rex wasn't willing to risk his job in the hopes Tebow could pull off another miracle. I really feel that this was the case and there is no giant friggin conspiracy against Tim that all the Tebow fans believe exists. I also believe that if Greg McElroy didn't hide his concussion in week 17 we would have actually gotten to see Tim start.I try to look at this situation as objectively as possible.
Im no longer 100% sold on Rex. However, I still like him enough to give him one more year to show us that he is still the coach who brought us to 2 championship games. I think firing him now would have been a mistake. I also feel that he handled this situation the best he could with the exception of one big thing. The benching of Sanchez. I think it should have been done right after "butt-fumble". That was it for him. He mentally checked out after that game IMO and the proper thing to do was bench him for McElroy not Tebow and I'll explain why.
Greg was developmental and you needed to see something strong from him to keep him in the role of starter. Especially if you're Tanny and Greg being the next Tom Brady could save your ass. You could place Mark as the third QB and continue to use Tebow in the wildcat. Should he struggle too? Then I think you let Tebow loose and see what he could do. This allows you enough time to evaluate all three guys and decide what you want to do with them going forward.
You're a Jets fan first man and I know you like Tebow, but the one thing that drove me nuts in the post I was addressing was that now we've got the Tebow nuts telling other long-time posters to get off this board. WTF? This is a message board for JETS fans, something BadAxe is not. Guys like him follow Tim wherever he goes and start crap with posters thread after thread just because they just don't see Tebow as a long-term starter. He'll be gone the day after Tim is cut and he's telling others who have been here a while discussing their favorite TEAM , not player, to "get the f*ck out"? Its getting tiresome to deal with.
if a person is just following a player I would agree........but being the player was on the jets I have to also try and defend what I believe........if tim does go to another team I wish him well unless he plays the jets with that being said I still think it was a case of rex being to hard-headed and not wanting to tim to show something because then he would have to admit he was wrong about suckchez all along. It would also mean he would have to look at all his decisions he made and re-evaluate them and rex is so full of himself he can't be wrong. Those are not guys you want running a football team guys that can't see faults in them-self will ultimately implode it is not a question of will he it is when and I think we are seeing the beginning these last two years.
