A Recipe For Success

If I were Jets' general manager Mike Tannenbaum, my highest offseason priority would be signing Drew Bledsoe.

Once his signing's secure, I'd coerce Eric Mangini (if need be) into demoting Chad Pennington to the role of third-string quarterback or second punter. We'd then name current rookie Kellen Clemens as Bledsoe's back-up, start Bledsoe for six or seven games and wait for his special brand of stunning mediocrity to inspire a change under center. At that point, I figure, Clemens will be ready to emerge as one of the league's best quarterbacks, and the Jets will begin to dominate on both sides of the ball. Super Bowl bonuses.

Hey, Drew Bledsoe could have a long career in this league basically charging outrageous fees for the football equivalent of stud rights.

Well, the Cowboys tried and failed with the "giving up on Tony Banks" model for Superbowl success that worked for the Rams and Ravens, but the "giving up on Drew Bledsoe" formula seems to be working to perfection so far. A blocked FG away from being 5-0 under Romo and they look to be getting better every week. The best thing is how well he spread the ball around. In the first 6 games, I was begining to wonder if they had secretly cut Jason Whitten or something, since he never caught anything. Nice to have him back now.
