[QUOTE=jetsnrangers;3539926]Scott Bakula is more believable as a QB than KC.[/QUOTE]
I'd even take Willie Beamen as a backup. At least he can run the wildcat and sing Ray Charles songs on the bench.
Clemens does get more hate than he deserves, but I think Ainge puts this debate to bed with a strong camp. It's doubtful that Ainge expects to be a full-time starter any time soon, and it would be great if he developed into a competent backup to stick for several years a la Pat Ryan.
[QUOTE=Warfish;3540421]Clemens is poo, but the Jets are keeping him round for something I suppose. I wouldn't bet against him being #2 again this coming year.
Are we all really high on Ainge? Is ainge the new "#3 QB who is teh awesome!" to most Jet Fans a la a dozen former #3 QB's we could mention? [B]Do we think (honestly) that if we have to use and rely on Ainge we'd be better off?[/B]
And is there still a chance Jets snag a vet #2 QB before camp opens?[/QUOTE]
my take is more of a "it can't be worse." if we rely on clemens, his job is to hand the ball off, throw a few screens, and don't screw up. is that really something ainge or even oconnell can't handle? and if we need the qb to step in and win the game for us, i think it'd be a good chance we're screwed, no matter which of the 3 is playing.
The x factor here is Kevin O'Connell, I think the team likes the potential of this guy, and he may be better than both Ainge and Clemens. I think Clemens is around for his experience, but will probably not make it past camp.
