The New York Jets didn't even last one half into their Monday Night matchup against the Cleveland Browns before going completely haywire. Trevor Siemian had thrown for just three yards before an ankle injury forced him out of the game and put practice squad quarterback Luke Falk in as the starter.

And here's where things get even more wild.

Adam Gase revealed if Falk gets hurt, running back Le'Veon Bell is the emergency quarterback.

At this point, it couldn't hurt, could it? Why not put Bell as the quarterback and run the triple option? Throwing the ball certainly hasn't produced anything of substance to this point.

The Jets have 71 total yards at the moment, and Bell has 62 of them. As bad as the team is, he is managing to produce.

The Jets are pathetic, yes, but at least this would give people a reason to tune in, as opposed to a third-string QB throwing one-yard checkdowns to backup wide receivers.
