Conversely, why would you try to build a team around a career 55% passer who lacks running ability and whose leadership has been questioned at various times throughout his career?
I've heard the playoff argument, but it rings hollow when the player has shown no improvement and the other guy has more recent playoff success, with a team that few would argue had less talent than last year's Jets. He also came out the winner in their only head-to-head matchup.
