Hire a coordinator as your Head Coach
In the process, pass over your your own young coordinator
Draft a QB.....and [B]HOPE[/B] that it actually works[/QUOTE]
That's the case with any QB if we never take a risk whether that was ratliff, clemens, or now sanchez then we will never find a franchise QB. You have to take a risk at some point or you'll never get anywhere.
I have no problem with you feeling Sanchez sucks, fine with that.
To say we gave up a lot to move from 17 to 5 is ridiculous. WE GAVE UP NOTHING. A jump this drastic without giving up multiple picks including a first is unheard of. THE GUYS WE GAVE UP BLOW. Ratliff is the second backup, coleman couldn't get a sack if you pasted one to his chest, and elam is the slowest safety i've ever seen and horrible in coverage. WHAT THE HELL DID WE GIVE UP? PLEASE TELL ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
[QUOTE=BIGKIDD325;3102121]When it comes right down to it, strictly the business side was great for the Jets. They give up the 3 guys and an extra pick for a great opportunity.
Whether or not you bash the trade itself though is completely based on whether or not you think Mark Sanchez can be a legitimate starting QB in the NFL. Whether or not you do now is irrelevant, it's not even May yet. We won't know if this really worked out for sure for about 3 years or so, until he has a chance to settle in.
So I don't see how you can say Tannenbaum did anything but a terrific job. You have to do things like this to win. You have to like that he tries to improve the team the way he does.
And you can sit here and debate how good Sanchez is or isn't, but until he has stepped onto the field in a regular season NFL game, you won't know.[/QUOTE]
