Lost in the madness of acquiring Tim Tebow and a brewing quarterback controversy, is something very important…There are other positions on the football field besides quarterback. Other positions that the Jets have serious, serious holes at. This is the New York Jets current depth chart at right tackle –
I don’t care who is playing quarterback if you can’t protect him. At left guard, they have an average player in Matt Slauson who will be coming off serious off-season surgery by the way which adds more concern to this unit as a whole.
This team still doesn’t have a starting wideout opposite Santonio Holmes. Unless you believe Chaz Schilens is going to produce more this year than he did in all four of his previous seasons…combined.
Rex Ryan believes he can win with a run heavy approach on offense aided by Tim Tebow thanks to a great defense. Unfortunately the Jets don’t have a great defense. Not with Bart Scott at inside linebacker. Not with Calvin Pace and Bryan Thomas starting at outside linebacker. Not without a pass rusher. And certainly not without a free safety.
The Jets are in a division with a team who has two of the five best tight ends in the league and have nobody to cover them. The Jets are in division with a team that just signed Mario Williams and Mark Anderson but doesn’t have anybody to block them…at least Miami doesn’t have their act together.
…You got plenty of work to do Mike T.
