This one is hard to answer with a simple yea or nay…
The Jets set him up to fail this season by not adding to the offense in positive ways. Yes, they expected Santonio Holmes and Dustin Keller to provide Marky Mark with a solid 2 options in the pass game.
But there are many other areas where they failed him.
Adding Tebow to this offense was a huge mistake on the field and just a cash grab off the field. The Jets just wanted to stay relevant with the Giants winning Super Bowls so the next best thing to winning championships is dominating the headlines. Which is a good consolation prize, obviously!
Adding Tony Sparano to be an offensive coordinator is offensive to other offensive coordinators…He turned that team from a gimmick to a joke in NO time flat and was notorious for being awful at minding the details down in MIAMI…There’s no way he’s improving this team, as evidenced by the offensive line’s performance so far this season, the lack of any offense moving forward and the lack of dynamic plays period!
The front office also blundered in not adding to the roster with major talent in the offseason. They took the cost-conscious route (aka cheap) and brought in hasbeens, also-rans and nobodies to play key roles in this offense! I know no one expected Revis or Holmes to injure themselves to such a degree this season. Dustin Keller’s hamstring and Stephen Hill’s leg has kept them out for so long and they are key parts of what they do on offense. But depth is a major problem! You’re expecting a lot out of some people that haven’t been able to do it on an NFL level for very long or in Stephen Hill’s case, EVER.
Back to the topic @ the top of this article: Mark Sanchez should be benched….Yea or Nay?
I say NAY.
What the should the Jets do? I’ll save that for another post….
