Another horrible suspicious decision by Rex. I don't think it was his choice. It was Tannendud or Woody, most likely Tannenidiot. If McElroy was active, he starts second half and Sanchez is truly done at that point.
The whining over not dressing 3 QB's is hilarious.
Be mad they dressed Tebow if you like, as if there was any chance Sanchez was getting benched again (hint, there wasn't, ever, no chance of any kind).
Be mad poor fan-beloved McElroy had to sit instead of fullfillign everyones Jets Brady fantasies.
But dressing 3 QB's is silly unless you predict injuries to the #1 AND #2. #3 QB's add nothing to the team, they play no special teams, they do not contrinute at all unless TWO QB's go down with injuries (an exceptionally rare event).
Given how specificly the gameplan was built to protect Sanchez, it's academic.....Sanchez wasn't going to be benched and wasn't going to be in a likely position to be hurt handing off so often.
Rex made the right decision, but Jets Fan nation is so outraged over the ignomity of a possible 8-8 season, no decision Rex or any jet makes will the rigth decision from here till opening day 2013.
Shoot, he could've had Tebow play RB if he needed one.
That being said, the point here is that despite intention of hell or high water with Sanchez, their is a decent chance that he could be injured and unable to play. Tebow did not take snaps at QB this week. If you are dressing only 2 QBS, it's probably a better idea to 1. dress the QBs that are healthy 2. dress the QBs who practiced and 3. dress the QBs who actually can play the position.
The whole situation is bizarre. When you make a player inactive the week after he plays pretty well, that sends a strange message to the team. It really makes no sense. I'm almost on board the Fire Rex bandwagon. I've had enough of this guy and his nonsense
It's pure lunacy in this league that teams are not allowed to have an exemption to dress a 3rd qb no matter what that does not count against the normal roster numbers. It will be yet another rule that will come into being after some team loses it starter and then the backup or be forced to play a really hurt player (see leftwich). Just stupidity.
He's just a glorified Bean-counter posing as a GM.
THE REAL POWER comes from WOODY STINKIN' JOHNSON, Period.
He's the guy who probably forced Rex to keep Tebow active and deactivate McElroy.
We'll see this coming Monday *WHEN* Tebow is not active and McElroy is.
This is a perfect example of terrible roster management by Rex.
What is the reasoning behind activating a back up for the third running back in place of a quarterback who won the game for you last week?
McKnight barely sees the field and has two running backs ahead of him on the depth chart. His contributions as a kick returner can be easily replaced, and that role wasn't going to be fillede by Kalil Bell anyway.
Sanchez is obviously struggling and his days as an NFL quarterback may be numbered, and the head coach decides to go into the game without the quarterback who lead the team to a come from behind victory the previous week and obviously created a much needed spark.
The reasoning is either complete dishonesty or downright incompetence.
Irrelevant, he's the #2 QB no matter how much fans cry and whine about it.Tebow did not take snaps at QB this week.
In your view.If you are dressing only 2 QBS, it's probably a better idea to 1. dress the QBs that are healthy 2. dress the QBs who practiced and 3. dress the QBs who actually can play the position.
Clearly the team thinks you're wrong. And were proven right, Sanchez wasn;t hurt, Tebow didn;t need to play, McElroy would not have seen the field.
But hey, if you cry some more, maybe the football fairy will sprinkle some wishy wishy dust on the Jets, and both Sanchez and Tebow will dissapear cap-hit-free, and McElroy can rise up to be the Brady-like Angel of Quackbombs you all seem to think he is.
Never has so many words been written by so many fans about so little in impotance an issue as McElroy.
This isn't about McElroy. Or crying. Or pixy dust.
It's about the Jets taking a huge, unnecessary gamble by only dressing one healthy actual QB for the game. That is stooooopid beyond belief. Just because Sanchez didn't get hurt didnt make the decision the correct one.
