I've read some very insightful posts on JetsInsider, and everyone has so many ideas of how we can succeed instead of just suckseed like we've been doing. Ideas of all kinds have been thrown around: Blow it Up - Get Rid of Tanny / Ryan / Sparano / Sanchez, and/or Tebow -- Start Tebow and Bench Sanchez -- Start McElroy and bench Tebow and Sanchez -- Wildcat -- Spread or Spread Option -- Have Tebow play in the red zone or at least get a whole drive -- Trade Tebow -- Trade away all of our players for a pipe dream in the next draft -- Start all over again and wait 4 years before anything gels .... Well, I don't have to tell you the stuff we've been posting recently.
I think we can find a better solution. We're not like Congress with Democrats and Republicans refusing to work together to find common ground. We're football fans - we have a very short time to get things done, unlike blowhard politicians. There are some great minds in this Forum, and I'd like to propose ..,.. an alliance. LOL - not like Survivor!! But an alliance nonetheless.
Wrap your brains around the following idea: How can we win with everything we have right now - Tebow, Sanchez, Offense, Defense, Special Teams, Coaches, Managers, Owner. How can we win with these elements as a given:
(1) Sanchez at QB
(2) Tebow at QB
(3) Sparano, Rex, Tanny, and Woody
That's right. Sanchez. Tebow. Sparano. Rex. Tanny. Woody. Without insisting that either Sanchez or Tebow be the only QB or be benched / traded away. How can we use Sanchez and Tebow in a way that balances their strengths and weaknesses? Wouldn't it be a formidable offense - with a hybrid Sanchez/Tebow? Coming in and out of the game switching back and forth from different offensive plays with no time outs and no time for the other team to adjust their D. And I don't mean switching in and out quickly the stupid way Sparano does it now. Each QB can finish their freaking drive or ball possession. Oh right, McGinty -- I mean each QB can finish their ****ing drive (thanks autocensor)!
How can we use the weapons that we currently have in our arsenal to win? And keep them next year, too, since we have to. Maybe we can create an amazing new offense like nothing the NFL has ever seen before. I think this is what Ryan is trying to do in his ham-fisted way. In a separate post I'm going to share a sports column from January regarding the Pats and the Gators. I've never read it before, and maybe it'll be new to some of you as well. I'd love for us to be on the forefront of that (see article below).
Let's use our great big football brains for something besides arguing. At least we can feel like we're doing SOMETHING to help our team. We hate the calls Rex and Sparano are making now, but I bet WE can figure out something that will work before THEY can. Odds, please?
This article was written while Tebow was still a Bronco. Here's the link:
I'd sure like to get ahead of Bellidouche in this area. If we can make what we have right now work, then we can proceed to develop the talent we currently have and fill in some badly needed positions during the draft. It would be great for the team to have the same coach long-term instead of a new cycle every 4 years. How long was Vince Lombardi at Green Bay? Tom Landry at Dallas? Papa Bear Halas - was he just a 3 year coach? If we can suck it up and continue to develop, we might have a winning season, then a playoffs season, and finally the Superbowl. For real. The Superbowl. Can we suck it up and work with what we have?Originally Posted by by Judy Battista, NY Times, 1/12/12
For the most part football is a very simple game, micromanaging and trying to create something to co exist is a bunch of ****ing bull****.
Here are some random ideas. Pick and choose the ones you like:
1. Never have Sanchez or Tebow as a wide out, never.
2. End the Tebow BS; just use Tebow like they used to use Smith.
3. Better yet junk the wildcat(see 7a below).
4. Bench Sanchez for a game.
5. Replace the QB coach.
6. Dress McElroy on game days and see what he's got to offer.
7. Make TOP the top priority and give the defense a break.
7a. Dress all 3 QBs. If one goes 3 and out then the next guy in line is up till he goes 3 and out, etc. It can't look any more foolish then what we're doing now!
Yeah, Tebow is just like Tom Brady but faster.
Can Tebow play ST? Brad was awesome as a KR.2. End the Tebow BS; just use Tebow like they used to use Smith.
Better yet...junk Tebow and send him to Jacksonville.3. Better yet junk the wildcat(see 7a below).
I'm sure Sanchez won't mind since he's getting PAID regardless. But Rex won't do it.4. Bench Sanchez for a game.
Translation : Find somebody....ANYBODY to take the QB Coaching gig even if you have to overpay to do it. Just get Cavanaugh OUT OF HERE!!5. Replace the QB coach.
Much more than Teblow, that's for sure.6. Dress McElroy on game days and see what he's got to offer.
So scoring points is no longer a priority? THAT'S RIGHT UP MARK SANCHEZ's ALLEY!!7. Make TOP the top priority and give the defense a break.
That would actually be funny to watch.7a. Dress all 3 QBs. If one goes 3 and out then the next guy in line is up till he goes 3 and out, etc. It can't look any more foolish then what we're doing now!
I hoped you guys wouldn't take the easy route and say get rid of Tebow or get rid of Sanchez. CleatMarks, I didn't post the news article to claim that Tebow = Brady but faster. That wasn't my intent at all. I'm trying to show you what Belichick did and what he continues to do to remain a successful NFL coach. You don't just sit there stagnant with the same old plays all of the time. The NFL has evolved over the years and will continue to evolve. Belichick doesn't remain stagnant; he learns, improves and develops. He and his coaches develop an offense and defense that play to their athletes' strengths. That's why he's a winner. Not because he has Brady, although that sure doesn't hurt.
Rex and Sparano are trying to accomplish something different with the offense, but I don't know what the **** it is and they're not implementing it very well. College coaches have team turnover every year, and a new QB every 3 or 4 years. They manage to make things work in spite of turnover. Some college teams are always dominant - they succeed because of their coaches. They're able to get the best out of the players on their team. An NFL coach should be able to do the same, and not put all of his eggs in one basket like ... well, like Sanchez's basket.
Mwahahaha, none of you have met the challenge of how to win with what we have right now. I must ban you from all future quests LOL
What's the rule on the 3rd QB? If he plays, the other QBs can't return to the game?
edit: Ah, abolished after 2011.
Thanks for noticing Michonne. She is awesome and this season is going to be great with her on it. I tried to find a pic with her sword on the Governor's throat, but they only showed him in the frame. Aquariums of heads.
As for the photo, you would need to find some production photos to get what you're looking for since they didn't use a shot that showed them both in the same frame in that scene.
