Better? What does that mean, 'better'? You realize that every single starting QB in the game (rookies included) has outperformed Mark thusfar? Every single one, unless you want to start counting Charlie Batch now.
that might be true and Timmy Tebow could still be a worse choice. He has a couple broken ribs as it is, what are we arguing about? Can't run the spread option with broken ribs.
since we are talking about injury the Jets have been lucky in other years avoiding that season killing injury, a la vinny T in 1999. the Jets had a true season killer with Revis. Holmes didnt help, neither did missing Pouha for half the season. But 24 was the big loss.
The reason I bring this up is cause it seems so far away from right now. And it doesn't excuse the embarrassment of thanksgiving night.
But neither is it completely unrelated. there is some context to what is happening with the team and the simplest answer is they lost their best player in week 3. Tanny and Rex (and Mark) could very well survive this season.
In fact I don't think the team has another plan. I am not saying this is right or fair, but it's a likely outcome.
