Woody wanted Tebow. He still wants Tebow. He loves Tebow. Woody loves a circus. The owner will override the GM and head coach since he is the owner.
Therefore, it is ridiculous to think that Tebow won't get a chance to start, possibly even this season, possibly as soon as the game after the loss to Seattle.
The long term health of the New York Jets cannot start its improvement and healing process until the Tebow era begins and goes down as an unmitigated disaster. Then the owner has to turn over everything to a real GM and a true Head Coach, not somebody who breaks out in hives when you mention offensive game planning and tries to win games with a philosophy that hasn't worked in 10+ years.
How does this tie to Rivers? A) He's not going anywhere. B) He's not that good. C) His mentality is a worse fit for NYC than Sanchez's, which is a terrible match. D) His performance has gone down as he's lost skill positions around him. E) He has been mediocre to subpar for two years running now, while playing for (despite all his shortcomings as a head coach) arguably the best offensive coordinator in the NFL in Norv Turner.
Trying to win in this league without a QB who can complete over 60% of his passes is like playing ping pong with your feet.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHA. THis is laughable. Phillip Rivers a pro bowl franchise qb. For one of the worst qbs in the league. Please stay off the drugs.
This. No one is just going to give us something for nothing.
The only way we move him at 8.5 mil is if we take more cap crap then that off of someone elses roster and give low paid prospects or as a package with Revis. I can't say who would take that cap hit and pay Revis. But the other is doable IMO. Lets just go with the team in the worst cap shape say Oakland. They pay 8.25 mil for Mark because they may want to move a few overpaid players and we eat around 9 mil just to move him. We have to take 2 or 3 of their gem contracts to make it worth their wild. They could be moving crap like Bey, Brisiel, Branch, Mcfadden, and/or Curry so it may actually be worth a look for us IMO. We drop one useless player and fill some gaps. Yeah would likely cost us like 20-22 mil when it is all said and done but still better then keeping or cutting him at 13 or 18 and still having those open wholes. It would pretty much kill signing any real FA for us but we would still likely get a few players out of it overpaid or not. You have to ask yourself is any of that crap worth anther 5-7 mil in cap space to you just to get rid of Mark? I know people here seem to think McFadden is the bees knees but he is serious crap IMO. But OK given the RB options we seem to have next year.
At this time I would like to borrow the logic a good amount of the "trade Revis" camp fans have used as a legit reason for wanting to trade him.....
"What has San Diego won with Rivers?"
Hell, what has Adrian Peterson, Devin Hester, Andre Johnson, Calvin Johnson, Patrick Willis, Arian Foster, DeMarcus Ware, Ed Reed, MJD, Patrick Peterson, Wes Welker, etc won with their respective teams?
Answer: not a Super Bowl
So for that reason alone I say NO to Rivers, or any of the else above!
