Who's better then him as a 2.
Rex publicly said a number of times we will run the ball.
As long as he's here that's our philosophy.
Rex also hinted to a 2 tight end system the most receivers we put out may be 3.
Mostly 2, so why wouldn't we play our best 2 receivers?
Could he be a better #2 ? Maybe, but Football 101 in West Coast Offense is slot WRs are GOLD. Thats the route that is virtually always there if a QB leads the WR with the 3 and 5 step drop. Kerley has more value to Jets w/West Coast Off as a slot WR than he would as a #2.
I hear your thoughts, but in this system its the slot thats gold.
You realize Jerry Rice got most of his YAC yards as motion to the slot, catching a 3-5 yd slant route over the middle and then taking off, BUT the QB had to hit the WR in STRIDE, thats KEY (something Sanchez could never do and was his downfall as a WCO QB) It forces coverage to middle and hopefully allows single coverage on the 'out' WRs. Game has changed. The slot WR is on field all the time and the so is the Nickel CB. So what was once a 2 WR and 2 CB league , isnt anymore.
But WTF do I know..Go JETS, bleed green is all I care about
