Another week of speculation, pointless Tebow headlines has been put to one side with the passing of trade deadline (I guess we're back to QB controversy headlines, sigh).
The Jets opted not to make any roster adjustments and I'm going out on a limb to say I'm glad they didn't, have you lost your mind I hear you scream. Here's my insight into the lack of activity.
For instance the team has the opportunity too bond, unite together and become mentally stronger as the players will hopefully view the lack of activity as a positive move, giving them a potential mindset of 'its up too us to turn this round, they didn't bring another guy in to do my job, they believe in me/us let's repay their faith.
Moving on, lets add in the whole Tebow drama to the equation. Let's say he'd been traded, the morons would instantly assume that Sanchez would lead us to the Superbowl as he'd be more focused, wrong. Sanchez needs Tebow, he needs to somehow embrace the extra attention and criticism and use this as an extra motivational tool, (this however is a double edged blade as it'll either make or break him).
Next on my list, comes opportunity. Regardless of how bad a team is performing there is always at least one unexpected individual that steps up and raises a few eyebrows with their on the field performances. As of who that is at this present moment in time, I'm unsure. Jeremy Kerley could be an early candidate for such an award, and what about the rookies Quinton Coples and Demario Davis, these guys need to be participating in more snaps, as we all know Bart Scott's days are numbered and I'm yet to witness any form of pass rush from anyone.
No doubt the majority will be disappointed that trader Mike did pull off the trade of the decade, but I guess I just like to view the current predicament with optimism, foolish maybe? but at least I'm hopeful that some good can come from this year. (Technically the play-offs are still within our reach).
