Actually you should be saying quite the opposite. Mett is what a QB with talent looks like. You should be able to look at what he brings to the table and see how limited as QB's that both JJ and JL truly were. This is what a REAL QB looks like folks. Yes CC has helped Mett improve and yes he would have likely improved JJ and JL some. A good QB coach and OC isn't a magic bullet. You can't build a strong house out of toothpicks, you have to have some good materials to start with. JJ and JL were too flawed for them to ever have been more than mediocre QB's regardless of the OC or QB coach.
My argument to all of this is Mett's performance last year. He's clearly talented like I said, but last year, he played very mediocre much like the QBs in the 4 years before him.
We bring in a new OC with a different philosophy. new route combinations, and an ability to coach QBs, and suddenly we're talking about a team that can in because, instead of in spite, of the offense.
ETA: This isn't me saying that JL or JJ would have been prolific passers. I just believe we would've had more trust in them late in games if they played under this regime.
