I hope we get one last buttfumble for old time's sake.

He's already got 2012 Jake bookends, 3 in one season would be truly epic.
 
2012-12-27 07:02:33 PM
but he needs to go for the full jake!

Do even the Jets take themselves seriously anymore?

For all the hate I still ... I don't know he didn't always suck and damn.
/looking at my Heath Schuler rookie card as a Redskin fan and going oh well.

What are they expected to do? Maybe if Tebow had kept quiet they would have given him a chance in the hopes that someone would throw them a 7th round conditional pick in the off-season.

Time for the bookies to get ready: What team does Sanchez end up with next season? Everyone needs some QB filler.

PS: My money is definitely not on the Seahawks.

In his first two years, he had the benefit of a really good defense, some good offensive pieces, and Brian Schottenheimer was able to parse a playbook down where Sanchez could succeed. Over time the defense underperformed, those offensive pieces disappeared, and as Schottenheimer opened up the playbook Sanchez didn't grow with it. He didn't develop, either because he ran into his limit as a QB or because he didn't put in the effort.

So yes, part of his problems are entirely his, but Ryan and Mike Tennenbaum should and will get fired on Monday for gross incompetence at personnel management.

The Jets: it's cheaper to keep him (8.7m) than trade him (8.9m) and certainly than it is to cut him (17m).

Naw...playing Tebow's a lose-loose for Rex Ryan.  Why play him and risk him doing well and making the coach look bad?
 
2012-12-27 08:15:41 PM
Seriously. Even if Tebow wasn't even on the goddamned team, this is just dicking around for the sake of it. This is the single most ridiculous, most self-inflicted QB controversy I have ever seen in the NFL.

Remember, we are talking the owner of the Jets here. Have 2 good seasons and he'll escort you to the bank vault so you can make your withdrawl in person.

What's really interesting about this is that McElroy hid his concussion until he couldn't anymore. Who wants to speculate on whether Alex Smith had anything to do with this?

These have been the primary Jets QBs since Woody Johnson bought the team:

Testaverde
Pennington (with Testaverde usually getting half the season starts anyway due to Pennington's annual injury)
Favre
Sanchez

not particularly saying anything.. just sayin'
 
2012-12-27 09:23:48 PM
If the Jets had just let him play last week San Diego would have concussed Sanchez instead, opening the door for McElroy. Instead Rex caused the Tebow controversy, the Sanchez controversy, and gave a lot of lulz to the few people who got to watch the Chargers rack up 11 sacks.
 
2012-12-27 09:25:48 PM
Using a car analogy...if you keep replacing the same part over and over, perhaps that part isn't the problem
 
2012-12-27 09:26:01 PM
My favorite part about this whole debacle is that the Jest will be remembered for it. It is just another addition to their long list of embarrassments going back to Ken O'Barbie. Having their icon Joe Namath get blasted and hit on Suze Kolber was great too, made even more so by the ghey apology he was forced to issue. If Namath was the guy Jets fans portray him to be, he would have said "yeah, I had a few drinks, and she's hot. Piss off."

It's not like Miami's had much to crow about since NE took over the division, but at least we have the perfect season, Marino, and nice weather when I can get back down to FL.

And a shiatty new logo, apparently.

I hadn't thought of that, but it's not unbelievable that it was that or him thinking, "All I have to do is survive next week and I help my stock for next year."

So, what happens when Mark goes out in the first quarter injured?

They pull the last true Jets fan from the stands and tell him to suit up?

Testaverde was horrible as a Jet, even in his 10-6 year (15 TD and 14 INT's), and let's not talk about the year after (9-7 record, 21 TD's... and 25 INT's)... and Pennington somehow *still* has the highest completion percentage in NFL history (66% over 10 years with 2 teams). What did Pennington in was his interceptions (routinely throwing almost as many balls to the other team as you had TD passes *will* get you shiatcanned, see Testaverde, above). Favre was, well, Favre ("Hey, watch me throw the ball 60 yds downfield into triple-coverage while on my back foot running left while throwing right!")... and the prosecution rests.

TEBOWMANIA begins... until he throws his 1st of 5 picks, at which time the police start scanning for snipers in the stands.

The Jets have had problems for so long because of the ownership. It's the only thing that has stayed the same, while the coaches, players, front office has changed.

Poor Mark Sanchez. He could probably be a decent QB with the right support. I wonder if a CFL team would take a chance by paying him a low salary to be their quarterback.

And if we want to talk about QB's who have *destroyed* the Delhomme rating... there are 6 QB's who would have Delhomme ratings of 116.7, the most recent being Ty Detmer, in a game in 2001 (and the really insane thing is, he didn't even go Full Delhomme... no fumbles for him, he did it all via INT's).

3 downs, longer and wider field...all of which requires faster and better decision making, throwing mechanics, and POISE.

I'm thinking, no.

I remember when Sanchez had such POISE. Whatever haooened to his POISE?
 
2012-12-27 10:44:36 PM
I don't care if you like Tebow or hate him, Rex Ryan has been a colossal dick and moron handling the situation. If I were in the NFL I would rule out playing on his team under any circumstances.
 
2012-12-27 11:11:32 PM
Rex Ryan is a colossal buffoon. No quarterback could have done well under him and his OC that shall not be named. Jets should completely clean house. See if Sanchez does better on another team. Probably.

why do people want to continuously send broken jets qb's here?  Ok maybe Winnipeg or the expansion team in Ottawa next year but that's it!

Because all people down here know of the CFL is Warren Moon and Doug Flutie. And maybe Rocket Ismael.

This is it right here.  If Tebow started, and played lights out footbal, then Ryan would be out next year, not a doubt in my mind.  Hell, he may be gone anyway, but there are some doubts.  No, it Tebow played well, Ryan would do well to just clean out the office right after the game.

how bad can tebow POSSIBLY be perfoming in practice?

Clearly he is able to throw the ball to the other team and buttfumble every bit as well as sanchez. Give the man a shot. THIS makes no sense outside of a personal vendetta.

You hit the motivation for Coach Ryan.  Tebow was forced upon him by management for $$$ and publicity reasons.  He responded by making sure Tebow would never be in a position to accomplish anything.

And all of those players started in the CFL before the salary disparity between the two leagues got completely insane; you never made as much in the CFL as you would in the NFL, but it wasn't light-years different like it is now.

Henry Burris and Ricky Ray are the only QBs right now in the CFL with any significant NFL experience, and both made the decision early on in their careers that they'd rather start in the CFL than ride the bench / practice squad in the NFL. Both made the decision to make the CFL their career...and they've both done well here. Akili Smith never made that committment, and he flopped out. Ricky Williams thought that the CFL would be an easy one-year tuneup before coming back to the NFL...and he was thoroughly unspectacular.
