Who is the voice?
A great team needs great leaders. The Jets clearly don't really have that with LT leaving this year, and with Cotchery leaving last year. During the melt down last year, everyone questioned who was the voice of the Jets offense? Let's take a look at some of the candidates. Let's start off with Mark Sanchez. Sanchez is going into his fourth year in the league, and has been inconsistent as a Jet. He got in an altercation with Holmes last year, and does not seem to have the vote of confidence from some teammates. So the answer is not Mark. The next candidate is his backup, Tim Tebow. Tebow is an amazing leader, but can he be that with the Jets? He will really only be a wild cat guy, and I am not sure some guys really respect him on this team, Holmes didn't even invite him to the private offense workout down in Florida about a month ago. So the answer is not Tim Tebow. The running backs are to young, and Keller is just not loud enough, so we move onto to our next candidate, Mr. Santonio Holmes. What will the Jets get out of him? The explosive, clutch, good leader? Or the ego freak, bad teammate, invisible on the field Holmes? Last year Holmes got into altercations with Wayne Hunter and Mark Sanchez. I really don't think he is the leader of the offense. Now let me tell you who is the leader of this offense, Nick Mangold. Mangold is an all-pro center, maybe best in the league. When he was not able to play for a couple games last year, the offense fell apart and Mark was crushed. During the Holmes-Hunter thing, Nick was trying to break it up. He is always positive, energetic, and always helps out Mark Sanchez. Without Nick Mangold the Jets would really be nowhere. Rex better put a big C on his jersey next season.
