So, the general argument is Rex is soooo smart he can eval talent enough he knows Mark gives the JETS the best chance to win.. but he watched Tebow (in college perhaps) and then all last year, even when Tebow spanked teh Jets, and he is the braintrust of the NFL for NOT starting Tebow.. ok.
To think, with this long ass post and you couldn't even make it through one paragraph without completely invalidating your own position. Tebow spanked the Jets? We're now classifying one single TD drive in an entire game as a spanking? You've simply proved, beyond any doubt, that you are completely incapable of even the slightest bit of objective analysis on this topic and have no grasp on the reality of this situation.
Four years of Sanchez, and you still think Rex knows talent ? Look at Sparano.. he lost his last job, and he has a job waiting ?
It's obvious why Rex doesn't want to start Tebow ...yet, when he does, there won't be any going back to Sanchez..
Slats, we haven't seen Tebow play... and all this discussion about his limited skill set or he can't throw is nonsense..
Really? Based on what? All of the evidence supports that fully. You saying its nonsense doesn't make it so. You've got to do better than that, but it seems that you can't.
in spite of what he had to throw to last year.. Manning in fact proves my point...
LOL. Are you out of your damn mind? That couldn't be more completely opposite than the truth.
Yes he is better than Tebow by far, he better be..he has much more time and support than Tebow has had, but Denver is actually a team with a QB, and Tim showed that last year turning that team around after Orton failed to deliver a winning season with all kinds of support.
What is any of this supposed to mean? What's been proven this season is that the supporting cast who you people try to blame endlessly for Tebow being an awful QB in Denver is good enough to be one of the league's best offenses. Granted Manning is a whole other class of QB, but if the players were as bad as you try to paint them, the upside of the offense would still be limited. They don't magically become better just because Manning shows up, and considering he doesn't seem to be any worse off when playing with them than he was earlier in his career, it would suggest that the supporting cast was not the problem with Denver's offense.
I get it ... There are just people , most of whom have been die hard Sanchez supporters up until now, who absolutely hate Tebow, it doesn't matter what he did, or will do.. every bit of it was a fluke.
Sanchez is ****ing awful. Outside of maybe 3 people on this board, two of which bailed on him last week, there's nobody supporting that schmuck. It just so happens, that doesn't change the fact that Tebow is also horrendously bad.
It doens't matter if he threw for over 300 yds against the number one d last year.. that was a fluke.
It doesn't matter if he took over a team after the FO had no choice because their chosen best chance to win failed, into the playoffs with a 1.8% chance of making it.
It doesn't matter that he is regarded by many as the best college football player ever.. (4ncaa DIV 1 records, 14 SEC records, and 28 school records for PASSING and running)
Sure, those things happened, but they don't make Tebow a great (or even mediocre) QB just like Sanchez's success his first two years in the league don't make him one either. Trying to take team success, look at it in a complete vacuum and then credit it entirely towards the QB has absolutely no merit.
And as far as college goes, you're right, it doesn't matter one damn bit. This is the NFL, not college football. There are countless number of college all-time greats who never did sh*t in the NFL. Tebow's simply joined that already long list.
What matters is that these same *JETS fans* would rather have the third string QB with one NFL start and NO visible history in this league start instead of the nice kid that beat them last year...
Because we know Sanchez sucks and we know Tebow sucks, and there's at least the slight bit of possibility that maybe McElroy doesn't suck (although he probably does), simply because it hasn't been already proven to be the case.
It's not even funny..its pathetic.
Yeah, this really is.
yes, I know college doesn't count.. that is why people are citing Gmacs college accomplishments as reason to start him, and why the NFL uses college to evaluate players before the draft.
Or, again, it could just be that he's the only QB on the Jets' roster who hasn't yet proven beyond doubt that he sucks ass.
btw, in case you haven't noticed there are several teams in the NFL who are running the spread option at present, because their current QBs ran the SO in college. RG3 is running the exact same offense as Tebow in college.
Yeah, so? It's one thing to tailor your offense for a good QB (RG3), it's another to tailor it for a sh*tty one (Tebow). The situations have no point of comparison. Consider as an example, that prior to this season's injury, the Jets were the only defense in the league to build it's entire defense around their #1 CB and had a great deal of success doing it as well. That doesn't change the fact that a team like the Buccaneers, with the league's worst passing defense, would be complete morons to try to do something like that.
