But as stated, this is the exact argument used againt such horrible ideas like the Relief Pitcher, Defenseive substitutions/packages, the Forward Pass and the West Coast offense.
We are what we are, we may as well try and get the most out of the talent we have. If that means the ball in Tebows hands as a runner of some kind 5 times a game, so be it. I'm open for trying something new. Of course, in your defense, it was also used against the Run-&-Shoot.....although one could say the Run-&-Shoot was one progenitor(of many) to todays generally pass-happy, pass-first, pass second, run only when forced Offenses.
It seems though, alot of Jets fans simply aren't. I can resepct that, even if I disagree with it.
In my view, the 2012 Jets will be successful first if we can run the ball with RB, second if Sanchex doesn't throw INT's or fumble so often, and third if we can utilize Tebow enough to keep Defenses from concentrating on Sanchez's thus-far-obvious-and-exploited weaknesses. This assumes our D will be our D, i.e. Top 10, of course.
I'm excited to see games, even pre-season. I reject the pre-emptive doom-and-gloom common elsewhere on the forum. Put simply, and coming from a generally consistent pessimist, I don't see reason to write us off at this stage of the year as many here are already doing.
