DRASTIC TIMES; CALL FOR DRASTIC DECISIONS FOR JETS
NORTH CAROLINA (BASN)—With all-pro corner back Darrelle Revis out-for-the season with a knee injury and star wide receiver Santonio Holmes suffering a season-ending toe injury in Gang Green’s (34-0) lost against the San Francisco 49ers last week, it’s time for Rex Ryan to make some drastic decision as the “NOT YET JETS” struggle to find their true identity before the big Monday night match-up against the (4-0) Houston Texans.
“Nobody’s canceling our game Monday,” said Mark Sanchez, who has failed to complete half of his passes in three weeks. “They’re not backing down from any kind of challenge.”
Despite Sanchez’s positive outlook, many fans feel it’s time for Tim Tebow to work some of his magic like he did in Denver by replacing Sanchez at quarterback.
But I, however, feel Ryan should sign Terrell Owens, or Plaxico Burgess, or even TE Kevin Winslow Jr. in order to improve the Jets banged up receiving unit, especially with Santonio Holmes out for the season, and rookie WR Stephen Hill and TE Dustin Keller nursing injured hamstrings.
Former NY wideout Keyshawn Johnson, who played four season for the Jets, however said that the Jets problems start with the lack of talent on the team more than anything else.
“The Jets have a poor roster when you look at it,” said Johnson, an ESPN analyst.
“The talent is suspect.There’s only about eight guys who I think could start on another NFL team.”
Johnson may have exaggerated a bit with his analysis of the Jets roster.
But his observation, must be taking into consideration.
Therefore, I suggest, instead placing Tebow under center, Ryan should consider giving Donovan McNabb another shot at playing QB in order to provide some senior leadership for Sanchez as he tries to deal with the difficulties of being a starting quarterback.
If Rex wants the Jets to stay relevant and dominate the back pages of the NY Tabloids, putting McNabb and T.O. back together again would create a media blitz bigger than Rasheed Wallace playing for the Knicks, Lin-Sanity, or the Brooklyn Nets season opener against the New York Knicks on Nov.1.
Plus, it might help the Jets win a few games in the process.
Because, drastic times, calls for drastic decisions.
