Saleh’s bold quote about being one of the 6-8 teams – why he likely feels that way Dan Leberfeld

Robert Saleh created headlines with this quote. What makes him think this way?

“I think 32 coaches stand in front of their team every year and talk about winning a championship,” Saleh said. “Realistically, there‚Äôs maybe six-to-eight teams that have an actual chance to do it.”

Why would he say this? Simple.

The NFL is a QB-driven league, and there are about six-to-eight elite quarterbacks, and the Jets have one of them in Aaron Rodgers.

If you have one of those elite quarterbacks, your chances of competing for a championship go way up.

If you don’t have one of those elite quarterbacks, your chances go way down.

The NFL is such a QB-reliant league, that if you don’t have one of those special guys under center, as Herman Edwards once said, “If you don’t have a quarterback, let me tell you something, that field is 150 yards long.”
