The Denver Broncos traded Tim Tebow to the Jets yesterday. While the Broncos – namely John Elway – were happy to rid themselves of Tebowmania, the Jets have no idea what they are in for.
As I mentioned earlier, the Jets were a circus last year. Actually they were worse than a circus – they were a MESS. Now the Jets are going to place a green dude like Tebow in that locker room? Are you kidding me?
First of all, the last thing incumbent QB Mark Sanchez needs is a fan favorite as a backup. Tebowmania is going to be much bigger in the NYC than in Denver. No disrespect to Denver, but there is a reason why NYC is called “the media capital of the world”.
At any rate while I agree that Sanchez has been overly coddled, dude did lead the Jets to the AFC title game his first two seasons. Sure he took a step back, but I think he will bounce back now that he has time to learn from his mistakes last season. Sanchez is not mentally strong enough to deal with Tebowmania, especially after a few poor throws.
I think Tebow would have been better served playing in Miami. From what I understand, the Dolphins really wanted Tebow to play for them. I know Tebow is from Jacksonville and the Jaguars did make a push for him, but I think that was more from ownership than the front office and coaching staff.
Plus, you mean to tell me Dolphins are set with David Garrard – a dude who didn’t even play last year? Really? Tebow would have been starting games by Week 3.
I am on record as being a Tebow fan. I still think this kid can and will be a productive starting QB in this league. I think he has the ability to succeed.
I just do not think it will be in New York.
