Now with Morningweg around (a legit offensive mind) it would be nice to have some weapons. The skill position players the last two years have been a joke. Where the QB thing hinders Rex the most is it affects the defense when they're constantly on the field, working with short fields and with basically zero margin for error.
When training-camp opened in August, the Jets starters were: Mark Sanchez, Santonio Holmes, Braylon Edwards, Jeff Cumberland, Nick Mangold, D’Brickashaw Ferguson, etc. The same nucleus from 2009. John Idzik couple that core with 1-year stop gaps: Josh Cribbs, Mike Goodson, Alex Green, Kellen Winslow, Greg Salas, David Nelson, and the rest of the castaways from the land of misfit toys.
Looking ahead; With the exceptions of Chris Ivory & Jeremy Kerley.. EVERYONE’S role is up in the air next season. (and yes, that includes younger players like Stephen Hill, Geno Smith & Bilal Powell) I can’t name 1 player who I can emphatically say will 100% be here next season. In fact, the Jets may pink-slip everyone.. and quite frankly I’D BE FINE WITH THAT! Idzik has his work cut-out for him here. We have no #1 WR.. no #2 WR. We have no #1 or #2 TE. We have no FB, no RT, no LG, but most of all.. we have no real QB. This is 2013. You need a QB to have a fighting chance in the NFL. Defense may win championships, but offense wins fvcking games. I for one am DONE with developing a QB! I don’t want to hear about Teddy Bridgewater, or Derek Carr, or Johnny Football. We’ve been “grooming quarterbacks” for the past 5 years. I AM DONE!!!!! If Rex is to remain head coach, then for God’s sake.. GIVE THIS MAN A FVCKING QUARTERBACK! Whether that’s Jay Cutler, or Michael Vick. Ben Roethlisberger.. Matt Schaub.. ANYBODY!! Seriously, I want a fvcking quarterback. We haven’t had a real QB since Brett Favre 6 fvcking years ago. --and as much as everyone wants to sh!t on that season, no one was complaining when the Jets were 8-3. When Favre was healthy, the Jets were rolling. When he tore his biceps tendon AND his right shoulder ligament, THAT’S when the season went to sh!t. Signing\Trading\Finding a bona`fide quarterback needs to be priority number one for the front office. The fans are done with Tim Tebow, Matt Simms, Geno Smith, Greg McElroy.. WE WANT A LEGIT STARTER.
