Go back and read
I never said the QB, the HC, the WR, the pass rush was not a commodity most teams wouldn't love to have.
But the two SB runs were on two average seasons the ended with a run, there were holes all over the roster. They now have a roster that is ready for a payday, it will interesting to see how the Giants respond. The statement was made that the "Giants will be just fine," there is no way of telling that as of right now, that remains to be seen.
Their SB victory doesn't change this either, despite somebody's notorious stance to whine and complain about everything the Jets do, mock it and compare it to another.
Tell me how the Jets model was any different? They wanted the QB, to date, after two seasons where things were looking good with THAT QB, that situation has regressed, but the model was good, and it got them to two straight AFCCG's, but now suddenly, the model wasn't good.
There are far too many factors in the game to suggest one model is better than the other, and far too many factors that can influence the success of that team, and the model. The last two years, the Jets have been on the downward trend, and have been victim of a ton of misfortune.
Couple this with the injuries and ignorant media piling on, the fanbase is in a frenzy, and few people can look through it all to realize, that things really aren't that bad for this team, even now. I believe Tannenbaum had a plan for the team, with the players that will be coming off the books this year, they are players that are no longer higher performing players, they come off at the right time, for the most part, Tannenbaum hit on this part of his plan. Unfortunately, Sanchez has been the one player that has gone in the wrong direction, but I am on record that believes it hasn't all been his fault.
