A lot of names are thrown around here but I always miss the one guy who to me makes the most sense. Vick and Rivers are damaged goods and quite frankly after the Tebow desaster nobody wants to have such a circus coming to town again. Matt Moore would just be a stop gap and Matt Flynn couldn't even beat out a rookie in Seattle. Plus his NFL numbers were only produced in meaningless end of the season games.
To me out of the backups and maybe, just maybe available QBs in the NFL the best option for the Jets would be:
He filled in for Matt Schaub last year and did a very good job. He won the game to clinch their playoff spot and then won the first postseason game in the team's history. He is a big, strong quarterback who comes with all the physical traits you are looking for and he clearly has a nice track record so far in the NFL.
There is a reason no one is talking about him. Watched him for years at UNC, nothing more than a backup. and why are there people wanting Moore as a stop gap QB, the guy is horrible. Was a starter in Carolina and was awful, so he has a couple of decent games so what......we are screwed at the QB position..I don't even know what to do.
No, Kubiak loves Yates, he is cheap and signed through 2015.
With Schaub's track record with injuries, it would take an unbelievable offer to pry Yates away from the Texans.
Yeah, prolly should have put a smiley there. I think its possible Sanchez goes somewhere but Houston doesn't really seem viable. Yates, while young, has some starting experience, which in my mind is essential for being a #2. Your #3 can be a green rookie, but your #2 MUST have seen some real live action.
When the Bears rolled out Caleb Hanie, it was essentially malpractice.
