By the way, you guys love #s so much yet never post any when they favor mark such as in January(you can't understand everything by looking at the #s but I saw all 3 of these QBs play in every playoff game and Mark was vastly superior to the other 2).
buttfumble(6 games as starter): 95-157, 1155 yds, 61%, 9 TDs, 3 INTs, 4-2 record including 4 road wins
O'Donnell(7 games as starter): 158-273, 1690 yds, 58%, 9 TDs, 8 INTs, 3-4 record including 2 home losses
Stewart(4 games as starter): 68-131, 52%, 2 TDs, 8 INTs, 2-2 record inclduing 2 home losses
buttfumble 2 year playoff #'s are better than Kordell Stewart's, and Neil O' Donnell's playoffs careers. Impressive. I've posted Mark's playoff numbers before, and they show exactly what I saw. A QB that must have an excellent running game and D. The Jets only have 25 fewer rushing yards in the playoffs wins than they do passing yards.
Give buttfumble a few more years, and we will see what the playoff numbers look like, if they make it. If the Jets can't get back to having a top 5 running game, and D, I'm willing to bet they are closer to Stewart's and O' Donnell's .
Not even close. Football is about winning games and right now, Tebow is winning games and buttfumble is losing games. Nothing else to be said.
"Fundamentals, technique, execution -- primary. Scheme -- secondary."
"We will incorporate an aggressive, up-tempo, attacking style in all three phases of the game."
"Our team will play with discipline, poise, and maximum effort."
"I want us to be the best tackling team in the NFL, the best team in pursuit, I want to take the ball away from other teams, I want to rattle the opposing quarterback every opportunity we get."

So Trent dilfer must be a first ballot hall of famer to you junc. He won a super bowl!
It's not about rush yds or pass yds, it's about making plays and limiting mistakes and Mark has done that. You guys get too wowed by meaningless fantasy #s(except when they are good for mark then you ignore them)
Stats do tell part of the story but it's not black and white from a boxscore. We can see 2 QBs in a game, one throws for 300yds and the other 150- does that automatically mean the 300 yd QB was better? No, it's about who made plays and who limited mistakes. Look at the #s in the title game last year, it would appear Mark was much better than Ben but Ben made huge plays to win the game despite having a rating in the 30s.
