I'm not sure where people are coming from on this. The Jets played up to their potential this year and maxed out as a team. Rex pulled then together as a team and Sanchez is a young hardworking Leader who can get them to the show and win it all. Tanny is a master at re-doing contracts and squeezin g the most out of the money they have to work with. There is only one course of action that makes sense and that is to stay the course. this team doesn't need changes, that will only set them back, They need to stick with those who brought them to their current heights and s few good breaks will put them over the top.
Stay the course Woody, stay the course.................

Felger has conceeded some of his "The Jets are better than you" arguments. He does concede the Jets have not drafted well, but he still will not give up on his "the cap is crap mantra" with them and believes the only reason the Pats are better are because the Pats have Brady and the Jets have Sanchez.
Personally, I don't think it is all on Sanchez. I think Ryan has destroyed the kid and never developed him. Sanchez was always limited, but he was better when he came into the league than he is now. He has gotten the David Carr treatment which can destroy a young QB.
From what I remember Felger was always on about draft philosophies, not just drafting well. He had high praise for the Jets' willingness to trade up for a player who can make an impact, as opposed to the Pats picking for a lot of depth. Lack of depth has killed the Jets, and we saw it starting with the Leonard injury before 45-3 in 2010. Maybe if the Jets had, say, kept pick #17 in 2009, they could have gotten a Josh Freeman and had some other picks to build around him.
Also, if the cap is crap, why did the Jets let all their leaders/winners go, guys like Cotchery and Brad Smith? Maybe it wasn't money, just bad judgment.
Anyway, to quote Flounder in Animal House: "Oh boy .... this is GREAT!"

He was right about the cap, under the old CBA. The new CBA has seen a change, because the increases haven't been there.
Usually Felger is wrong about something for years until it comes true (Moss is bad, for example). In this case, he was right about something and now he's not. When/if the big cap bumps actually show up again, he'll be right again.

Sanchez was always limited, but he was better when he came into the league than he is now.
Agreed. Being in NY, I see more of the Jets than I'd like to, and I would say he did possess a quality the first couple of years. We (rightly) laugh at the the "two AFC championship games" stuff, but he did make some plays in those games.
Now, he's just awful. I thought Ryan not benching him after the Pats game was actually borderline cruel to Sanchez--he had obviously lost all confidence, and would have been better served to sit for awhile. He's become such a joke, with the butt fumble, etc., that I think his only chance of playing even semi-decently is to do it elsewhere.

'Cause I'd rather feel bad than not feel anything at all."
Per just about everyone you can think of who matters on Twitter, Jets announce McElroy to start.
Wow. I would think they would start Tebow to show someone out there that they should trade for him. Maybe he is THAT BAD in practice that they don't dare for fear they will destroy his trade value. I agree Sanchez is done. Seems like the only thing they can do is cut him, or hope some desperate team shows an interest and get him to take a pay cut to effect a trade. Maintaining the status quo would be Patriots gold!!
As a Pats fan out here in the Bay Area and having watched Alex Smith for the past 7 years, I would love it if the Jets picked him up next year. Alex Smith sucks, and only has been made to look decent in the past 2 years because of Harbaugh's coaching (i.e. putting him in safe situations, building a tremendous team around him, making the most of his strengths, etc. --- all things that the Jets will not be able to do).
If the Jets grab Alex Smith next year it would be like buying an over-inflated stock right near its peak. Of course this is sort of like what they did with Tebow last year, so I wouldnt put it past them.
Tim Tebow reportedly feels "misled" by the Jets after they bypassed him to give the Week 16 starting job to Greg McElroy.
When the Jets traded for him, Tebow was promised that he would get a shot to play if Mark Sanchez was injured and/or ineffective. In fact, it was reported last March that Tebow chose the Jets over the Jags because he saw a clearer path to the starting job in New York. He's not the type to make waves publicly, so expect Tebow to continue to play the "good soldier" role. The Jets' trade for Tebow makes less sense with each passing week.

If that's true then Tebow is dumber than I thought. Rex Ryan had been irrationally loyal to Sanchez up to that point, and the only QB that could have stood in Tebow's way in Jacksonville was Blaine freaking Gabbert. As decent as Chad Henne has been this season, I still think he would have been placed behind Tebow on the depth chart. Personally I thought it was the ONLY destination that made sense for Tebow's career and for the Jaguars franchise. Perhaps that will be revisited when Tebow is eventually cut this offseason.
