So what was your point exactly? I already know we've sucked for a while now. Your franchise has sucked for nearly its entire existence. A guy who is known for a buttfumble is your franchise leader in playoff wins. That says it all.
I want a QB who is capable of putting a team on his back and carrying them. When I watch Tannehill, Wilson, Luck, Stafford, Cam, Kaepernick, all these QB's that came in the league at the same time or later that have all passed him I see QB's who have the potential to do that or who at the very least know how to play the position a lot better then Mark does. I don't see it in Mark. You might say guys like Wilson and Tannehill aren't in the same league as guys like Luck and Cam but they know how to play the position. Tannehill has shown to be a very good passer, if he could figure out how to throw the deep ball he would elevate to another level. I'm not saying he's great, right now his overall play is a little better then average IMO. But he is trending upward. He's getting better every year. Mark wasn't. Tannehill's problem is also coaching and the front office. He doesn't have a ton of talent to work with. Wallace is average, Hartline is ok.
Wilson doesn't have a ton of talent outside of Lynch to work with but he knows how to protect the football, bide his time, use his feet when needed, and eventually make the big play.
Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. Mark's not a kid anymore. He's played 4 complete seasons in the league. He's won 4 playoff games yes, and played well in both championship games. But that doesn't make him a good QB. You have to look at the big picture. There is way more bad then good. He's to inconsistent. He will have a good game one week and then turn around the next week and turn the ball over 4 times. Good QB's are consistent. Mark simply isn't.

we are allowed to differ, sorry if I offended you in any way I just hate how no Jet fans seem to have any appreciation for him. He's not great, never was and never will be but he was a big part of those runs and considering we haven't seen a SB since long before any of us were born we should appreciate playing for the right to get to the SB.
I'll never discredit Mark's playoff accomplishments. Best playoff performer at the QB spot we probably have ever had taking the Super Bowl win out of it and looking at it strictly based off wins and performance in those games . He also does have a knack for making big plays at big moments. Plenty of games come to mind especially in 2010 (Houston, Cleveland, Detroit). Even the San Diego playoff game where we differ on his play, he still made big throws at big spots in that game for us. I can't pretend that didn't happen.
It's always risky letting a top pick walk away from your team. I could be dead wrong on Mark and he could go somewhere and make Jets fans regret wanting him gone for many years to come. We'll see. I don't think I am but it's just an opinion. Everyone is wrong at certain times when it comes to sports. That's what makes sports so great.
I just don't like being categorized not necessarily by you, but by anyone as a "Mark hater" like some people are, and deservingly so. I don't hate him. I simply don't think he is that good. I've always said I could be wrong. Sometimes it takes players a little longer to reach their full potential. Mark's absolutely shown that he has talent. I just worry that it will always come in flashes. We'll see.
