They'd be fools to play Sanchez. Watt can smell the virgin Christian blood from miles away and if he has to tear apart Sanchez to get to Tebow, by god he will do it.

Sorry guys but Mark Sanchez sucking doesn't magically make Tebow good.
 
2012-10-05 01:12:44 PM  
Say what you want, but Tebow was clutch last year for the Broncos when they needed him to be. He finds a way to win, and his teammates play better too because he's such a great leader, unlike that dirty Sanchez.

I never understood how QB's who fall behind for the whole time and barely win are considered better than QB's who can give their team a huge leads the entire game. Maybe you can explain to me this "logic"?

I am not saying Sanchez can do that but you make it sound having a QB that puts you behind most the game and barely wins is somehow a positive.

Did I say that? I don't remember saying that. Coaching might have something to do with it, too. It seemed the Broncos were pretty conservative in their play calling until they had no choice to throw it a bit more and Tebow was adequate at that.

But I don't even think Jesus Tebow could make them a whole lot better. Jets fans would know more than me, but it seems they can't even run the ball as well. Their receivers don't scare anybody and their offensive line sucks, too. Not a good recipe for a thriving offense, regardless of who is QB.

This. Completing 30% of your passes for 3 1/2 quarters is not made up for by completing 90% in the last five minutes, no matter what ESPN wants people to believe.

I never bought into the whole Tebow thing at all (at least since he's been in the NFL), but if the Jets keep going the way they're going they'll have to do something.

They're not.

They're considered better than QBs who fall behind for the whole time and then lose. Or keep the game close and then lose. See, Johnny, people like winners. Ultimately, it doesn't really matter to them how you get there, as long as you keep winning. That's part of why people cheat. If you win enough, people don't give a f*ck if you cheated (Lance Armstrong). Just be nice to the media and no one cares.

See, this is the thing. Hey, if Tebow's strategy for winning is to suck so badly that the other team starts sucking too and the Jets magically win? IT'S STILL BETTER THAN LOSING. Like, as a Seahawks fan, getting the questionable call at the end of the Packers game...does it suck having everyone act as though a debatable call was the worst call ever? Sure. Does it suck as bad as losing? F*ck no.

Hell, give Greg McElroy a shot. Knowing him, he probably mastered the playbook by the second day of training camp and he reads The Economist on his clipboard during gamedays.

JJ Watt is farking terrifying. At some point on Sunday he's going to bat one of Sanchez's dinky checkdown passes into the air, intercept it, grab Sanchez by the jersey, jam the ball into his facemask, and then piledrive Sanchez into the turf so his legs are sticking straight up in the air, twitching. And then Watt will point over to the Jets sideline at Tebow and the cameras will catch him mouthing "NOW YOU".

Fifteen yards for roughing the passer, Jets keep the ball.

I have no problem believing this. At this point if I was Sanchez, I'd volunteer to ride the pine for one game. Watch Tebow flail about for four quarters, watch the NY sports press have a meltdown, then take the field like a hero the next week.
 
2012-10-05 03:36:24 PM  
Here's my hilarity:

The Jets are 2-2, tied for the lead in their division, and are having this epic meltdown and "QB controversy".

The Browns are 0-4, pretty much dead last in the entire league, and everyone is sticking behind Branden Weeden and still saying last year was all Colt McCoy's fault.

...now imagine if the Jets and the Browns switched places. The Jets are now the Browns, with team, record, and everything. The Browns are now the Jets.

What would the Cleveland and New York fans and media be saying then?

Yeah just claim something like dizzyness from a hit or hip pain. If Tebow can beat the 49ers in any manner, Sanchez was going to lose his job no matter what.

Whoa, don't talk about McCoy.

Weeden does actually look impressive. They should lose enough that they draft some physical receivers, because the Browns receivers look like converted DBs

This is what I said during yesterday's Fark Tebow thread. Because there has to be a Tebow thread on Fark everyday. Because he has such an impact on the game, you see.

If any NY team was 0-4, the NY media would be sounding air raid sirens and writing articles about how the sky is falling and this fall is the worst fall since 2001, you know, when that thing happened, and woe is unto them, and the glory days of ________ have had their legacy tarnished by this inadequacy, and how __________ must be fired, immediately, and how shocking the whole affair is, though nevertheless they saw it coming back in the preseason, but no matter what, at least it wasn't as bad as the Red Sox season this year.

He's making me look pretty not-ridiculous for being the only one in my Coaching Football class (I'd already finished my degree, GI Bill was going to cover the rest of the school year, so I figured I'd take fun courses while looking for a job that last quarter) to pick him as the No. 1 overall pick in a "who would you take with the Panthers' pick at No. 1 and why?" question.

I'm not sure it matters necessarily what the Jets' record is specifically; their fans & media outlets will be loud, obnoxious, and either belligerently over-confident, or in some rabid state of utter despair. You can rest assured it will be a thermonuclear state of cacophony either way.

Something to improve their record might have to be more substantial than putting one guy in for another. I know The Tebow Faithful believe He alone can magically improve the receivers, the running game, and the offensive line, but that's not going to happen.

To paraphrase the1hatman, the whole team has seen Him in practice.

The thing is, there's no good outcome for Sanchez with that one. If the jets win with Tebow, it's proof that he is a winner. If they lose, you get the press coming up with all sorts of metrics about how they possibly played better. Especially given the accusations that they quit against SF. Hell, even if they get blown out and Tebow plays like he did against the Lions last year, you'll just hear about how he needs time, or the confidence to know he's the man going forward, or coaches/teammmates who aren't intentionally sucking because they hate Tebow oh so much on account of his awesomeness.

Wisconsin is a good school for producing monstrous white linemen on both sides of the ball. It's all the cheese and high lactose tolerances. Once you get more than 2 yards off the line of scrimmage though, forget it.

Oh don't get me wrong, there's a ton of problems beyond Sanchez. But mid-season, switching QB's is actually feasible while a complete overhaul is not. Not to say Sanchez is blameless, but he may be taking some of the front office's blame before all is said and done.

The important thing to remember is, either way the Jets will suck. And that annoys New Yorkers.
