Would you be being fair if it wasn't jake? Jake had a good run but hasn't been very good in a few years. Regardless, a playoff contender trusted a rookie more than a veteran who played in a Super Bowl, colt McCoy and Matt Moore both just lost their jobs to rookies 2 weeks into training camp. Jake is no where near the top of his game, it's not a knock on the man, he's getting old, it happens even to the best.
So would you say Donovan Mcnabb is going out near the top of his game? Their careers ended in similar fashion
I never said he was at the top of his game. He wasn't. I was saying that when he was picked up by Houston last year that he was already behind someone who was young but already familiar with the offense. It's not like her was there for training camp and familiar with all the line/receivers/backs involved. It takes time to build a rapport with personnel. That's all.
I responded to a post that said jake would rather go out at the top of his game than hold a clip board. All I said was he isn't near the top of his game and hasn't been for a while.
Jake, at the top of his game would have beaten a rookie, training camp or not.
Jake at the top of his game would have won the Super Bowl if his coach had been on the top of his game.
As is Jake was voted the top performance by a QB on a non winning role.
That being said, he didn't get beat out by a rookie. There was no competition. It was the rookie's job before Jake even had a tryout.
So when said he only wanted to sign with a contender, what he meant was I want to go somewhere where I don't even have a chance to play? Really? Jake hasn't been good for 3 years, the last good season he had was after surgery when they went 12-4, since then he has been pretty bad, sugar coat it any way you want.
7-4 all-time against the Saints.
