If you're talking benching Mark, McElroy would be the better oprion of a starting QB. If he doesn't have an arm like many say, let's see it, but from what we DO see, he apears to have the toughness and smarts to give it a good shot at least. Face it, you need a chip on your shoulder to play NFL QB... all the very good and great ones have it... Sanchez seems like he just expects to win, but he's just mildly bummed about a loss instead of rippin' pissed. To me, it looks like he has the tools, but not the attitude and accuracy. Without that you're done.
Whoever starts, TEBOW SHOULD BE IN MANY PACKAGES WHERE WE MIX IT UP AND HE'S PLAYING HB/FB/WILDCAT QB/TE/WR AND TOUCHING THE BALL ALMOST EVERY POSSESSION. ESPECIALLY WHEN WE GO 3-AND-OUT EVERY FREAKIN' POSSESSION! LIGHT A FREAKIN' SPARK! WTF... I am so pissed that we are mis-using that kid.
The past is the past. Jon Gruden won a super bowl and was fired a few years later. Why? Becasue he hadnt done squat lately. And rex hasnt dont squat lately.You name the Last Jets coach that was able to beat the likes of Phillip Rivers, Peyton Manning, and Tom Brady in the playoffs while on the road. Your right, you dont get it.
Stop hanging your hat on something he did 2 years ago. Its over.
You have to remember Mark would go to Rex's son's football games. He has not only perfected the art of the excuse he is the master of the suckup. Rex will never bench Mark Sanchez I can promise you that. Mark really should right books on how to succeed when you suck at your job.
Rex has to go! He is an alleged defensive guru and a self-proclaimed best defensive coach in the NFL. Does it look that way to anyone? Without Ngata and Redd, he is less then stellar! Tannybum must go. No words to describe him! Brick is in a state of freefall. He is declining with every game and every year! We must develop a LT asap!
Pace, BT and Eric Smith MUST also go!
We are currently carrying 4 DT/NTs and 3 DEs. (DT- Muir, Po'hua, Ellis and Harrison. ) DEs- Wilkerson, De Vito and Coples. Could we use an extra DE as a passrusher and eliminate one DT? What do you guys think?
New GM worth his salt and Rex is toast... If it's just a guy happy to have a job and another Woody puppet, then Rex is safe...
But then the Jets will blow anyway....
Kotite era is upon us.
But lets face the facts. The Jets have not utilized Tim Tebow appropriately right from the get go now. They are not sure where he belongs on the football field.
My belief is that Tim Tebow is a good enough talent that he should be on the field as an every down player. I think his size would dictate he'd be best as a FB/RB/TE. Anyone of those spots he could help this team immensely. Oh, and lets not forget when he's on the field he always carrying home run play potential. That may be the shot of adrenaline that this team needs right now.
I do not believe Tim Tebow is a QB. I think that's the one area where Tim Tebow is severely lacking. But as a wildcat QB, as time goes on, I think you'll see that Tebow becomes an asset.
As for starting QB, we all know that it's over for Sanchez. Sometimes change can be the very best thing for a team. In 2002, for no other reason than change, Vinny was benched in favor of Chad Pennington. CP provided the shot of adrenaline that the team needed at that time. The Jets went on to the playoffs that season.
I don't know that Greg McElroy can provide that kind of spark for the team. But knowing what we know about Sanchez, I think starting McElroy would at least provide some sorely needed optimism.
If Rex cannot see that Sanchez is too inaccurate, and too turnover prone, for his style of team, he deserves to be fired.
Rex's "Run First, Play D" idea needs a QB who turns it over infrequently 9Sanchez is worst in the league) and completes passes at a 60%+ clip (Sanchez has NFL worst Comp. %).
If Rex hangs wih Sanchez, they'll all surely hang together after this season.
No NFL team can withstand a turnover machine at QB
I agree it is redoncoulos that he will not give tebow a shot mark sucks and rode the lucky train of a top team that Mangini built for marks first two years
