But, on the other hand, if Rex is convincing himself that Mark is the right guy, he is DEAD WRONG. Rex has to look inside himself, and figure out if he really believes what he is saying. If he is keeping Mark in there because he is afraid to make a change, he is NOT doing what is best for the team, and he HAS to make the move to Tim Tebow. He CANNOT stay with Mark simply because he likes the guy. Yes, he drafted him, and moved up to do so. But if he is just living and dying by the guy for the sake of doing so, he is wrong. He has to make the change if he really doesn’t believe it anymore. A leader has to believe what he is saying. If he doesn’t, he has to make the change.

Rex has to figure out if he believes what he is saying, truly. If he does, he has to leave Mark in there. If he doesn’t, he has to put Tim in the game and make the move.

As a footnote, take a look at the other portion of what Rex says, and has been saying. He refers to the fact that “if it were just one guy, it would be an easy move to make…”. Thinkg about that for a second. What is he actually saying? Rex is saying that the entire side of the football has to get better. Who can argue with that? Does even the biggest Tebow supporter really believe that this team is a playoff team if Tim Tebow is inserted into the starting lineup?

Maybe Rex is looking at the big picture. Maybe Rex just knows what we all know, if we are honest, that this roster just isn’t that good. He knows that making a change at QB is not going to change the results. If the roster is bad, and they are performing badly, changing the QB is not going to change anything. His heart, his leadership not withstanding, Tim Tebow still needs players around him to succeed. Does he have them around him here in New York? Does he? I’m not so sure.

But the point is, Rex has to do what HE feels is right, not what we feel is right. If it’s Mark, it’s Mark. If it’s Tim, it’s Tim. But Rex is ABSOLUTELY RIGHT for doing what he feels is best for the team.

He may be wrong, for all I know, but he may be right. Think about it.
