Not that I am advocating the Jets take Bridgewater. The Jets dont have a RB, or good OL, or offensive weapons. I don't know if any QB can cure those ills. I think the Jets QB desires will not be known until the Jets see what Geno is.
More hype than substance? Statements like this diminish his entire body of work (including being the #1 prospect in all of high school football in 2011 and has validated that with his play on field ever since) make it seem like his only accomplishment was the hit against Michigan, ignoring the fact that e.
