Thankful Tebow Gives Late-Night Hello to Jets

Posted by Randy Lange on March 22, 2012 – 12:46 am

It was a little after 11:30 p.m. on Wednesday, about the time the late-night talk show hosts come out and play. And Tim Tebow, smooth and sincere, sounded as if he might be auditioning for at least a fill-in role for Dave or Jimmy — either one — or Conan.

“Hello. I hope you’re all doing good,” Tebow, the new Jets backup QB and Wildcatter, told the team’s reporters on a hastily organized conference call. “First and foremost, I just want to thank the Denver Broncos for my time there. It was very memorable and special.

“Now I’m looking forward to my time as a Jet. I’m very thankful for the opportunity to play for such a great organization. It’s my dream and passion to help them out and just be a part of it. I’m just happy they believed in me and stuck with me through this crazy process.”

Next, a word from our sponsor.

Yes, that’s genuine Tim Tebow. For anyone who’s never listened to him for 15 straight minutes, it’s revealing. He was set aside by the Broncos as they pursued and tackled Peyton Manning to be their new franchise quarterback, he has lost his starter’s job to be Mark Sanchez’s backup, and he didn’t even get to entertain an offer from his hometown Jaguars. Yet a short while ago, seldom was heard a discouraging word.

Take Rex Ryan, for instance.

“I wanted to play for Coach Ryan ever since I saw ‘Hard Knocks,’ ” Tebow chuckled about Rex’s and the Jets’ five-week star turn on HBO’s training camp series two summers ago. “He just seemed like a coach who loves football and is passionate about the game of football. He’s definitely a players’ coach. I just love that about him.”

But didn’t the salty language fall a little hard on the uber-religious QB’s ears?

“I have so much respect for Coach Ryan,” he said, chuckling even louder. “He’s a coach you want to play for, a coach you want to go out there and do good for. … There’s not many NFL locker rooms you’re going to go where you have the cleanest language, so I’m not too worried about that.”

How about the Broncos? Any parting shots over their bow?

“I understand what they were going through,” he said. “You don’t get many opportunities to have a chance to sign Peyton Manning. What a great quarterback he is.”

OK, then how about working up a good hate for Sanchez, whom he is now slated to play second fiddle to, at least on the QB depth chart.

“Mark called me and left a voicemail,” Tebow said. “I was searching through all my voicemails and I heard his and I called him back. We talked, got a chance to catch up a little bit. It was a great conversation. We’ve been blessed to get to know each other the last three years.

“I think we’re both extremely competitive. I think we’ll be able to push each other to get a lot better. I think we’ll have a great working relationship, and we’ve had a great relationship off the field. He’s such a classy guy. I’ll be very honored to call him my teammate.”

Tebow further declined to see his new Green & White role as a demotion from being a weekly national trending topic as he was leading Denver to a 7-4 record and its first playoff game in six years, which of course he won with an 80-yard touchdown pass on the first play of overtime over the Steelers.

“I feel like this is a great opportunity for me to develop,” he said. “I think the scheme we’ll be playing in is a great scheme to play under and improve every day. My goal is just to be the best player, the best quarterback, the best teammate I can be and improve every single day and earn everything I get by working hard and find a way to help the team in whatever role that is.”

And just to cover all his bases, he threw bouquets to Jets Nation, which seem initially divided on the wisdom of this trade: “Just playing for an organization that has such passionate fans, such a great fan base, so many people that care about them and support them, that definitely means a lot to me.”

Get used to it, folks. Tebow is as smooth and sincere off the field as he is dynamic and diabolical to defenses on it. (We hear he’ll get to demonstrate his glibness again for a national late-night TV audience or two in the coming days.)

Then just in case you missed it, he repeated one other sentiment several different ways that we’ll leave you with tonight:

“I’m just thankful to be a Jet.”

Now stay tuned for Last Call with Carson Daly. It’s just about that time.

    Dan Hanzus on the NFL site writes: “The Jets’ three-headed monster of Woody Johnson, Mike Tannenbaum, and yes, Rex Ryan couldn’t resist the siren call of back-page tabloid glory. It’s seems like an addiction at this point. No, I can’t talk myself into this one. It’s a new kind of pain with the Same Old Jets.” I agree totally. Like Joe, I like Tebow as a person, I’m just not anxious to see him and the Jets march gleefully backward. Lupica told it straight today about how quickly the Wildcat fad crumbled, as some of us have been saying for yrs. And I’m perhaps most upset to read that Mr T guaranteed Stanton that the Jets would add no more QBs. I can certainly understand why with a GM like that, no one all that good wants to play for us.

    Iam Not going to fall into the trap of bashing this kid or the organization, what done is done, dont let the self proclaimed know it all on radio trash the team, tired of it…or let it be about one player next season Jets Nation!! Boycott the 1-6 slot..

    God, this kid is so great, just this conversation he had is so “Tebow”…really touches me after all they just did to him in denver, i’ve been soo angry! Yet Tim, still loving, good, classy, just too amazing, you got a real gift Jets. I’m in Gainesville, need i say more. My prayer is you give him that chance to show what he can and will do, Please don’t treat him like that elway did. he’ll give you his all, and no matter what he’ll turn around again and say God Bless you. Jet fans are going to all grow to love him as we have. I’ll be watching every game and counting on that last 3 minutes thrill : D Dawn Nichols, Gainesville,fl.

    I’m not sure what to make of the move. Only time will tell. I’d welcome Tebow for starters. He’s a fan favorite for a reason. Few in the league carry themselves with as much class.

    I can see him being a good addition. Sanchez does need to be pushed, and he will also handle himself with class as he always has, in doing so. I see them being great teammates and BOTH leaders in the lockerroom. Not necessarily both vocal leaders, but leaders who work hard, and handle themselves well despite what APPEARS to be a circus. There are a lot of armchair GMs here, and people forget, things change daily, and responses can sometimes only be made to what transpires daily. So now we have Tebow. Why can’t it work??

    I understand this kid has a very positive attitude in the locker room to the point of infectious(in a good way) – something the Jets really need right now.

  12. By Jet Fan Since '64 Tom on Mar 22, 2012 | Reply

    From Johnette Howard’s brilliant ESPN piece: “Free agents with any brains or choices at all have to look at the Jets like Manning did and think, why would I want to go play for a franchise that cares more about being a vaudeville act than victories? And the players who are already here? They have to feel disgusted that the circus looks likely to continue and Ryan did nothing to stop it. The Jets who were the real grownups in the locker room last season — true leaders like Darrelle Revis and Brandon Moore and the departed LaDainian Tomlinson — all said or intimated that what went on last season in the Jets’ locker room was bad as anything they’ve ever seen in the NFL. It’s going to get worse when Tebow arrives.” How indisputably true.

  13. By Jet Fan Since '64 Tom on Mar 22, 2012 | Reply

    We’ll get enough of the New Testament from Tebow, so here’s something from the Tao Te Ching, written 600 yrs before Jesus (though some think Jesus visited the Far East): “A great nation is like a great man. When he makes a mistake, he realizes it. Having realized it, he admits it. Having admitted it, he corrects it.” I’ve told you guys that I fell for Rex’s hype on Sanchez but then opened my eyes. Rex himself opened my eyes about Rex by way of his ineptitude with the O, his constant lying, and his completely boorish and unprofessional behavior as the face of this franchise. So I “came to Jesus” and now advocate losing Woody, Mr T, Rex, and half this roster and letting Curtis Martin start all over again. How many more of you are with me NOW?

    I can certainly see the football reasons for this, but it is Tebow. I sure hope they considered what this may do to Sanchez when the morons start to scream after the first incomplete pass or what polarization he may bring to an already suspect incohesive locker room.

    The potential distractions for this deal can be way too much. We will all just have to wait and see. One thing i can say you can understand why Sparano and Rex had interest in him. In three games vs those HC’s Tebow rushed 23 times for 150 yds and 2 TD’s. If somehow they can get those type of #’s or anything near those #’s and add it to an offense that had all types of problems last year well go for it if you believe it will work. They are still my team and while i might not agree with all their moves i will never stop supporting them.
    GO JETS!!!!

    Give the kid a chance. It’s not his fault if people like him and love him. He is going to do good for the Jets.

    Please find out if Namath is suffering from some sort of illness. He sounded hateful and lost.

    Tebow is going to be an asset to the team, just give him a chance and watch the Jets go up and up there is no other way you can go but up.

    I was just about to push the Panic Button, but wait, This is genious! The ONLY back up QB in the History of the league that can light a bigger fire under Sanchez, every snap he takes will have to be PERFECT. We will find out now undeniably if Sanchez is a Franchize Leading QB or a carrer Backup.

    I don’t like giving up the 4th round pick but this will be good for the Jets. This will light a fire under Sanchez and give him good competition. This is an upgrade over Stanton. Usiing Tebow as H-back and Wildcat is perfect for Sparano. Praise God…

    I can’t see this as anything but a positive move. Tebow seems like an honest guy and a great teammate with that “Derek Jeter” kind of “right place at the right time” instinct. I can see the Jets putting it over the goal line more and getting that first down at a higher rate. The team should come together as a unit. Nice addition to the NY Jets.

Now you bring this joke and try to force feed him to Jets fans? This is the straw that brakes the camels back! What a joke you have made this team! I’m, done with the jets. no more heart breaks for me .thanks for all you have done to wreak the team.

    Green no more.

    Unbelievable. I’ve been a Jet fan since Gastineau was jumping around after sacks. I’ve been through the good times with Mo Lewis, Vinny, Wayne and Toon. I’ve been through the bad with Rich Kotite and Rick Mirer. I love Ryan and thught they were on their way up, away from perpetual mediocrity to let me witness their first Superbowl appearance in my lifetime… and then this.

    I don’t know if I can take it anymore. Why would you bring in such a polarizing player when you should be focusing on quietly instilling confidence in your QB with a new OC and system on its way in. This just tells Sanchez “you’re not good enough – we need to mix it up in order to move the ball and win”. Maybe I’ll become a Bears fan.

    There won’t be a locker room divide. The players will see who and what Tebow is. He won’t incite any problems. He’ll be a true team player and live to make this team better. The players will follow. His role may start in one direction, but he will wind up being the starter.

    Any Jet fan that comes on here and says they are going to stop rooting for the team because we traded for Tebow is not a JETS fan. I’m sorry, I BLEED GREEN! I will be a Jets fan no matter who they trade, draft, hire, or fire. There will always be moves that I will love, and moves I won’t. Anyone that wants to quit on the team, go ahead. JETS NATION DOESN’T WANT ANY FAIR WEATHER FANS.

    My thoughts on Tebow. I think it has a lot of potential. I really hope it works out. I want to see the coaching staff use him as some sort of hybrid RB, FB, and TE(if he can..). He is a winner, and has the ability to make game changing plays. I WANT WINNERS on the JETS. I’ll take a full roster of guys with his attitude. J! E! T! S! JETS! JETS! JETS!

    Count me in as one who questions this trade but let’s not jump ship yet. I wonder how quiet all of you will become if and when the Wildcat or whatever they use Tebow in results in some game changing plays that give us some extra W’s. I have been a NYJ fan for over 30 years yet you wont hear me senselessly harp like Jet fan 64 to have everyone say… “how many of you are with me now ?” That’s simply pathetic. Your path is your choice but consider giving Tebow a chance as he is a passionate player who wantd to win [not always a given folks]. The media frenzy is what is ruining the NYJ and NFL more than anything else [although Tbaum & Rex are not far behind].
    Lets just hope for some O line help prior to the draft, we need it.

    JetFan since 64, NO ONE is with you now! Obviously the strain of being a Jet fan for so long has warped you into a “bitter old fan” I could not whole-heartedy DISAGREE with you more on this Tebow/Rex/Sanchez topic. Your constant negativity and glass half empty approach is getting old and boring. Being a Jet fan since the Walton/O’Brian days(not as long as you) I look at this trade as the Jets finally replacing Brad Smith; drafted as a backup QB and converted to WR/Wildcat(Seminole) man. Tebow will be like B. Smith only WAY BETTER! Last season, our offense sure as heck missed BS/seminole. Sanchez needs someone to push him to be at his best and Sparano will utilize Tebow’s talents to the fullest. Look at the Jets potential, glass full

    Tebow can help mend the “overblown problem” in the Jets locker room and be an inspiration, not a distraction. He wants to win, not just be ‘the starter”. He and Sanchez will learn and grow from each other. Problem: The NY/NFL media will do its best to create controversy, when none really exists. Sure he is outspoken about his religous beliefs, but that is what being American is all about; freedom of speech. Hundreds of thousands of people have died for us to maintain that right. As a GulfWar veteran, I volunteered to do my part. We, as Americans, then have the choice to listen to Tebow, or not. That is what makes our freedom and this country THE BEST!

I also believe that NFL QBs are made. Saw Parcells do it and others before him. Think this could have been done with GQ. But with each new decision it becomes more apparent that will not happen……The idea is a good one but outrageously flawed……TRex have no idea of the animal they’ve spawned……Tebow runs wild in game, the noose tightens just a little bit more around GQ’s neck. They will not be able to control this animal……………Start introducing yourselves to the new posters boys.

    Fact is, Jets ended last season an 8-8 team. Nothing so far indicates improvement. Why not also bring in T.O. and trade a 1st round for Ocho Cinco. Don’t stop here, let’s go all in, T-baum.

    If you guys think Tim is a FB/TE, you are sadly mistaken. I’ve been following Tim since his Jr year in high school – he played in the town I reside.

    Let’s not forget; last year he took over when the Broncos were 1-4 and led them to the playoffs, including a first round win over the Steelers while completing 10 passes for over 300 yds.. Every analyst said he could not play. But week after week, as he accumulated more and more wins, everyone of those analyst changed their tune – based on performance on the field.

    Back-up? Maybe. But doubtful. He has performed better than Sanchez where it counts – on the field during games that matter.

    I think it’s great. To have a guy like Tebow on your squad who can at a moment’s notice can basically play any position on offense is invaluable. He CAN throw (look at the number of dropped passes by Broncos last year then start complaining), run, tackle, punt return and when he gets hit, he gets up! No rolling around on the ground praying for the cart to come and get him. Remember Sanches as a WR and the “flinch”? PLZ. He will be the starter by game 4.

    Sporano wanted Tebow for wild cat offense, so why did we let brad smith go for less money and draft picks? Evidently the team philosophy changes with the wind…Meanwhile back at the ranch, no pass rush, weak OL and mediocre recvers led by a whining over paid recver who quits when he dont get the ball….to me battle for third place looks promising in division…

    It is worth a shot. This has Sparano written all over it to have another option for his Wildcat – rather have him running it than Kerley, whom we need catching the ball. Why not even try him at Tight End? The kid may not be an NFL starting QB however he is an athlete. At 6’3″ and 245 lbs., he is 1″ taller than Aaron Hernandez. The kid can run and run over people. Why not give him a shot at TE while working the Wildcat.? When you have someone who can run like that, do whatever you can to get him involved in the offense. A lot of NFL people are worried what this will do to MS psyche – for cryin’ out loud, if you cannot handle this, you do not belong playing QB in New York City.

    If the jets coaches work with Tebow on footwork and throwing, he will lead this team to the super bowl very soon. The man is a BEAST in the red zone! With our defense, and Tebow’s red zone ability we will be awesome! He just needs to improve between the 20’s and he can do that if given the right support and right play calls.

    Ps Tebow at 23 was so valuable to DENVER ELWAY DIDNT EVEN WANT HIM AROUND TO BACK UP a 36 year old (WHO THEY JUST GAVE 90 MILLION DOLLARS TO ))coming off 2 major neck operations the past year .Elways HISTORY AND SUPER BOWL RESEME IS SLIGHTLY BETTER THAN MIKE T AND REXS so i would venture to say he knows what hes doing.Money was NOT A FACTOR AS DENVER WAY UNDER THE CAP

    hey jets fans, here as a guest from broncos. And will continue to be a
    tebow fan here. I hope he wins a superbowl here. And hope you will see what a hard-working, game-loving, competitive, respectful, athlete he is. He will come with plenty of fans too, after the ambiguous Elway-Fox duo (maybe judas-benedict would be better) showed him the door after not producing in the off season. Vote amongst yourselves and see how many think the Broncos would have made the post-season with Orton as the starter. Oh, and get ready for the haters, they will be here no matter how good he does.

    I think this trade is a good move… I know Tebow is not your prototypical qb, but I believe he will be an asset in certain situations, which is why I think the Jets made the trade. It’s not like he can’t throw the football at all, and his running ability can only help the Jets ground and pound. Now address getting a pass rusher, safety and some depth on the O line in the draft… Stay positive Jet fans and realize that quoting all the negative bull@#$& that the so called experts write is just an opinion, no more important or knowledgeable than anyone’d on this blog.

    I’ve been a life long Miami Dolphin fan, but now with Tebow there, I am now a Jets fan, how is that for going all in on a player that is rarely found in the NFL, a guy with class, no matter how badly the ego maniac Elway treated him, he did not sink to his level, he will not call him out in public, he will bite his tongue and move on. The Jets are now a much better team because of Tim Tebow, Rex Ryan and Tony Sparano will make sure that Tebow is a complete success and have no doubt, I can’t wait to see the Jets vs. the Broncos in the playoffs, Tebow will destroy them. God bless and Go Jets!!!

    Objectively, our priorities include QB coach, RT, Safety, Pass Rusher, PR, K, LB, others. This deal should have been made only as a luxury move, after all the holes are filled. This guy also rubs some people the wrong way. So, how’s that going to affect the locker room and team chemistry? For years I harped on Shotty’s ineptitude and it took 4 years for them to finally axe him. T-baum’s blunders are numerous and I’m hoping it’s not going take as many years for Woody to see the light.

    Jacksonville just wanted to CYA to their Fans by Faking they wanted to sign Tim. They pretended that he turned them down, but it was Smith & Mularky who did not want him. Only offered him a clipboard and a third teir position. Of course he did not want that, so the Suits on the Jags were off the hook with the locals. They news outlets and the pundints cannot see that. I have been a Football fan all my life (75 years) and I have not lost my eyesight yet. Get real , folks . Good luck to Tim in NY/NJ.

    What I think Tebow should be: An asset in the Wildcat, Some TE and out of the backfield like Hernandez, a good option for goal line and short yardage.

    What I think Tebow will not be: A franchise QB. He is a great person and a great athlete but there are too many flaws as a NFL QB.

    What I am afraid of: The Jets will release McElroy to go somewhere else and become elite.

    With Turner at RT the Jets will need 4 or more QBs. If Sanchez doesn’t like it he is not fit to be a starting QB. (probably not anyway)

    I would love to see them go out and now sign a FS or OL. That would settle down the fan base. Still think Tebow gets about 10 plays per game and as long as he gets positive results in any way either pass, run or decoy its a plus. I fully expect to see Sanchez and Tebow on field a the same time.
    Randy, I get mixed up about the QB rule. Can the two line up in the same backfield at the same time? Because i fully expect it at times. I guarantee everybody Tebow will catch a TD pass vs the Pats this year. Take that Vrabel!

I’m just going to hate it when fans will be calling for Tebow when Sanchez has a bad game, and he will have a bad game, all QBs have bad games.

The great football personnel people always said you start building a team in the trenches. You guys are right, no improvement—just lies to the players and fans by management.

    I had a night to think about this deal and the crazed Jets fans need to really relax. The goal is to improve the team and win a championship. last year all everybody said is that Sanchez has no challenge to be benched with no capable backup that can drive his competiitive spirit. well – he now has to compete which will BENEFIT SANCHEZ AND THE JETS THIS SEASON. when has Sanchez been at his best – in the playoffs and on game winning drives when he can roll out and make quicker decisions in a hurry up style offense. Sanchez now has to truly earn his money and not just go through the motions. He now will work harder and compete more to keep his starting job which will add into a more competitive jets team and more victories.

    Tebow sure looked damn good against the Steelers. And yes, he sure looked damn bad against the Pats. He isn’t here to take over for Sanchez. So let’s wait and see how Rex and Sparano are going to use him.

    He is a good kid with a ton of heart. Will be a great teammate and hopefully a calming influence in the locker room. He never stops, never quits and never gives up. We should call him the Terminator, haha.

    In addition to my fist point – Tebow is a tremendous athlete and is now our best running threat on this team. This opens the offensive playbook for hundreds of different looks which will challenge opposing defenses. Sanchez makes a ton of money and nobody should be worrying about his fragile ego. He is blessed to be 1 of 32 men to have a job of starting QB in the NFL – but the job needs to be earned and it is not anointed to you based on where you were drafted. Ask ryan leaf and jamarcus russell.

    I like the idea of Tebow running a more advanced wildcat, but this move kills any hope of making the Jets a serious contender for future FA’s. You cannot believe anything Mike T says, so why would any potential FA.

    Ira, not sure about the 2 QB thing, but if Sanchez and Tebow are out on the field at the same time I’m sure Sanchez would be the QB and Tebow would be the “RB”.

    Today it looks like the Tebow supporters far out weigh the non supporters, and that is fine. Everything you have to say about him being a great person, a leader and a winner and so on are all true, there is no denying it, but from a football standpoint specifically a NY Jets standpoint, it makes zero sense. It may have made a little more sense had Stanton not been signed, if it were only a #5 instead of a 4 AND a 6, if he were more a prototypical QB that could actually “push” Sanchez and compete for a starting job, but as it stands it makes no sense. You don’t give up 2 draft picks for a player who may see the field 8-10 plays a game in a formation that is obsolete to the rest of the league.

    I think with Tebow you add an explosive athlete to the offense – something the Jets have desperately needed – I like him at TE, he looks to be stronger and faster than any tight end on the roster now – face it..Keller doesn’t scare anyone, maybe with the distraction of TT running routes DK can get open ? Tebow and Sanchez in the backfield could be interesting – if anything Tim can throw the deep ball fairly well, it’s the short quick timing routes where he struggles. Just have one question for RANDY – is it possible the front office communication got mixed up, they grabbed Stanton and promised him a backup spot while the media was reporting that Tebow was to be released by Denver ?? I think we could have gotten Tebow for nothing ?

    For Mark Sanchez it is put up or shut up time, if you don’t want to hear the Tebow chants, go out and play well, win some games.

    My fear though is Sanchez will play scared, scared to make a mistake, scared to lose his job/playing time, scared to go out and be that leader we so desperately need. Bottom line though if he cannot do it, if he cannot handle the pressure, then we have the wrong guy.

    Holmes is going to side with Mark more than ever now, and work his rear end off to not let Tebow be the one under center.

    davetherave, if you think that the Jets could not have done an about face with a couple of key FA signings and a productive draft it is you that is dead wrong. The Jets were about 4-5 players away from being a force (RT, OLB, Saftey WR, RB) a B/U QB who is more of a RB/H Back just is not one of their needs or priority’s The only thing they addressed so far is a safety with a questionable injury history. NO OLB, NO OT, NO RB. Now, can they still do it? Yes, but they now have two less draft picks to work with and that makes no football sense. Not unless you filled a major need. They did not!

    Call me an optimistic Jets fan, but I believe this can work. Sanchez running the pro and Tebow running the wildcat could be special. It could create nightmares for opposing defensive coordinators if they execute. Now go get a pass-rusher and a right tackle, please! I think getting a cover safety is less important than getting a pass-rusher at this point. Pressure on the QB leads to errant passes, which helps out the secondary with coverage and leads to more turnovers, which leads to wins… Go JETS!

    Spicer when you make idiotic comments like you just did no one can take you seriously. Tebow single handedly beat us with a 95 yard TD drive and scored the winning TD. He single handidly beat the Phins down by 15 with under 6 minutes left in the game. He threw a better pass to Thomas to win the Steelers playoff game than Sanchize-Not ever did. That is just 3 games he won the game including a playoff game in his first 12 games in the NFL. Sanchize-Not has NEVER EVER come close to doing anything like what Tebow did. He also won the game in the last minute VS the Chargers on the road. The kid is a WINNER and elevates his team something Sanchize-Not DOESN’T DO!!!!!!!!!!

    Bringing Tebow here just confirms what everybody knows. The Jets are a joke and a completely mismanaged one at that. As a fan of this team for 48 years this is as low as it gets. Now that this happened I think the responsibility is now perfectly clear where it belongs. I expect the Jets like I have said before to win 4 or 5games at best this year. The year will be a diaster and the locker room will be toxic. Ryan, Tannenbaum, and Sparano will be shown the door. And once again the Jets will be the laughing stock of the NFL.

    Well there you have it boys and girls. TanWoody says quote, ” If we have a few three and outs or are stuggling we have a change of pace” he also said, “This is year 4 and we expect Sanchize-Not to make a SIGNIFICANT improvement.”
    Like I said ladies and gentleman they brought in a viable playoff winning QB who is a winner to push Sanchize-Not and if he faulters like last year you can bet he will be riding the bench. This is a brilliant move and Sanchize-Not will have to prove if he is mentally tough enough to handle the pressure something all good QB’s can do and something he is clearly lacking.

    Let all the QB’s COMPETE for the start. Contrary to what the experts say, Tebow can pass. Tebow finished the 07’ Gators season with the second highest passing efficiency in the nation. He had 32 passing TD’s, and 23 rushing TD’s. Ironically, he won The Manning Award in 09’. He accumulated a lot of rust sitting on the Denver bench. Remember, he came in at week 5 and had to build some haphazard chemistry with a team that was not “bump ‘n’ grind” oriented in any way, shape or form, and that was already in total disarray. His presence will sell tickets at MetLife and will generate even greater ratings on nationwide television. Regardless of who wins the next Super Bowl, the Jets will be the most exciting team to watch, the BEST entertainment in the NFL. They will win everything, sooner than later. The ‘Joke’ in the NFL will be with the lack of pass protection at Denver.

    I like the trade but I don’t think TT should be backup or starting QB. He can help the team win by playing in the same backfield as MS to run or throw the ball. Sparano is a creative thinker who knows how to adapt his system to the talents of the players he has. This could be a Billy Beane/Moneyball kind of move. Forget conventional wisdom & set a new trend with a double barreled passing game that enables & is enabled by a powerful running game. I’m excited to see the possibilities develop. To those who let themselves be guided by the media talking heads & want to leave the team because of this trade, good riddance.

    I understand what a great guy Tebow is and what he did in Denver, but I agree with scjoe—the Jet Football Team needs we had entering FA signing season are not being met. The team is supposed to work together as a cohesive unit and all the football players, and executives I listen to on Sirius NFL can’t make sense of this move. As a Jet fan I know it’s a done deal and I pray that somehow it works. But we still need the other players we needed before this and we have less to work with to fill those needs.

We just lost draft picks and most of all the salary for for this back-up quaterback could have been used for offensive linemen, running back or a wide receiver. Why did they let Brad Smith go, he throws alot better and more cost effective. The quarterback we have from Alabama did great last year in preseaon. This is going to blow-up. Sanchez came out of College with one year of playing time, give him a chance. I’ve been a fan since Richard Todd & watched a few games when Joe Namath was still a jet. I thought we were done making moves that make no sense. Forgot, Sanchez resigned, holmes 5 year contract, who is this wide receiver from oakland. I’m waiting for Rex to say ?

    I guess the best way to look at it is that Sanchez and Tebow can be a very dangerous combination. Mark will only get better, he can throw the ball. No disrespect to Tebow but he still needs more reps in throwing the ball, but the guy is an athlete. Maybe they can be lethal. Tebow said he will push Mark and himself as much as he can. I’m still not totally on board with Tebow being here and I know I’m speaking wayyyy to early here, but just imagine, the Jets and Broncos in afc title match and we win, i will laugh in Elways face.

    bamajetguru, fascinating to see somebody with that name rooting for Tebow as a Jet when the only HOF QB we’ve ever had played at Alabama and possibly the best one on our roster now did too. So that’s all I have to say to you other than thanks for your service in the Gulf but that’s the whole problem with Tebow, he gets everybody talking about everything but football. He put 18 pts a game on the board last yr, even less than Sanchez. Sorry, folks, SBs are still won with QBs like Brady, Brees, Ben R, and both Mannings and a Dilfer-a-decade doesn’t change that. But like a sick person in denial, the Jets seem determined to try everything but what they really need to do — build a young team around a great QB. Call ‘em the New York Jokes.

    While i understand Rex’s idea about running more WC and other things he should also know that back in 09 the first Mia game the Fish rushed 36-151-2TD’s and we lost. Then in the game at home they stopped the run 23-52-0 TD’s but we lost again with Ginn’s 2 returns and Taylor’s TD. So Rex knows how to shut this down and he did that to Tebow for 55 min last year @ Den. So i am just asking why would he think this would work?

I’m quite sure that as an owner, Curtis Martin wouldn’t tolerate QBs who can’t throw accurately, QBs who are terrified by the rush, a UFA back-up C, old and slow guys on D, and a love for publicity stunts instead of fielding a good team. So I”M THE FUTURE, loser, YOU and your rationalizations for this desperate, pathetic, clueless org and team are THE PAST!

    Frank, These are stats in 14 games Tebow had 19 turnovers 6 picks & 13 fumbles. CAN YOU SAY TURNOVER MACHINE? Tebow had 12 TDS Mark had 26 more than DOUBLE LOL. Tebow 46% completion percentage yea thats what we need!. 46 46 that has to be the worst EVER in the history of football !

    Frank it is funny how Tebow is a winner but when I say Mark is a winner he is not Tebow won 8 games this year Mark won 8. Mark won 32 games in the last 3 years. Sorry a guy who wins 8 games has not been in the game long enough to be called a winner.

    Fans said Marks 56.7 % completion percentage was no good. Wait until you see Tebows 46% LOL. Mark is not accurate Tebow is the least accurate QB in the history of the NFL! Mark has no pocket presence well Tebows is even worse! Tebow cant read a D! The wildcat has been figured out & will get stuffed! Teh only thing Tebow supposedly does well is run the ball with that being said he had 6 TDS last year HELLO Mark had 6 TDS rushing. There is ZERO benefit from this trade.

    And oh yeah, bamajetguru, having risked MY life for other people’s rights to freedom of speech, I don’t take kindly to folks who are all for that freedom until it’s speech that they don’t like. So let’s see how truly open-minded you are: Tebow can’t even throw as well as Sanchez. He can’t read a D to save his life. Bringing him here only impedes MS’s development and sets the Jets back by yrs in finding out who is the real franchise QB, just like Spicer says. Like I said on the other story, I could see if the team just said we’re trading MS and going with Tebow, I’d disagree but it would make sense. This makes NO sense so don’t tell me a real football man like Curtis Martin as owner wouldn’t be a HUGE upgrade for this team and franchise!

    I’m still thinking Tebow is in line to get a goodly share of LT’s reps, not Sanchez’s. They’ll be some wildcat of course, but he’ll be more tailback than QB. Had trouble trying to remember a QB turned RB in the NFL, then I thought of one–Paul Horning. Heisman guy too.

    What a joke this whole franchise has become. I’ll still be there when the season starts, but I think we already know that it won’t take more than a game or so before we hear the fans booing MS and chanting for Tebow. Let’s seee how Rex handles that.

    Ira, the answer to your question is simple, if comprehensive: Rex has no idea what he’s doing, knows nothing about offense, is inflexible in the face of his own failures, isn’t qualified emotionally or technically to be a HC anywhere in the NFL, is an obnoxious egotist who cares much more about standing in the spotlight and shooting off his damn fool mouth than winning games, and all in all is dragging this team to depths of ridicule not seen since Lou Holtz or, okay, Rich Kotite if you like. Do you really not know any of this? Does any of this really surprise you? Or does cluelessness in the face of complete stupidity on every level, from spending to drafting to player development, constitute your definition of being a good Jet fan?

    That was a pretty lukewarm endorsement of Tebow by Rex at the LSU pro day. Tends to support the theory that a few have floated about how he’s not at all in charge of the team anymore and just following orders. Not that that would be a bad thing if the orders weren’t coming from Mr T…and if they made the slightest football sense, as joe, spicer, and about 8 million football experts in the media and the NFL have been saying…

    Best of Luck to Tebow, although, he should be in a Jag’s uniform after we trade him to move up in the first or second round. Hold off on the pass rusher this year. Our Defense was good enough to win most of our lost games last year. (E. Smith Exception)
    Offense was the problem. particularly RT.
    Even if Sanchez did get better from the previous year, we couldn’t see it. It was blocked out by a back-peddling RT.

    I am not completely upset with this trade, you have to take a chance to succeed. A fourth and a sixth isn’t that bad. I think the biggest question is why couldn’t we pay the same or even less for a much better QB like Orton? I definitely think Tebow will bring in fans and outsell Sanchez jerseys. I also think he can really help the team who kicked a lot of field goals and threw very costly interceptions when anywhere near the opponents side of the field. Tebow was 7-4 and won a playoff game with an 80 yard TD pass. Meanwhile Sanchez almost single handedly lost the last 3 with 3 interceptions in his last game against a poor team. I still look to see a 1st round pass rusher and a 2nd round RB. Maybe the Boise St. SS in the 3rd.

    Tebow is only an upgrade for this team. Lets face it, Sanchez will not or ever be an elite QB in this league. An as long as MS is the QB of the NY Jets, than the Jets will have to be a gadget team using Wildcat or other plays to create big yardage. As long as this team can keep the turnovers to a minimum than the will be feared by elite teams.

    My biggest concern is the lack of a true plan particularly on offense – first it was 3 wide throw the ball then return to ground & pound & now the wildcat which has run its course in the league.

    Arte’s theory is Tebow’s gonna become the 2nd Coming not of J.C. but of Ben R and play Sanchez off the team. If that really happened, that would be fine. There are 2 kinds of elite QBs in the league now, the Brady/Mannings/Brees/Rodgers model and the Ben R/Favre/Newton model and yes, I want one of those! But the Tebow I’ve seen, and I’ve seen every game he’s played, doesn’t look anything like Ben R yet. To get him there, I think you’d need a GREAT QB coach and you’d have to hand him the job for a few yrs. He ain’t gonna become Ben R in 6 plays a game. My other problem with what I see as Arte’s extremely fanciful scenario is that I don’t really see Mr T and Rex giving up on MS for another yr or 2 and right now he’s better than Tebow by far.

    Aside from the Tebow Mark Sanchez delemma, it’s McElroy that gets run over on this one. Clearly Rex is upset with him.

    Tebow = Good for the Jets
    – Last season was the most painful season for a Jets fan, and I believe offensive philosophy is to blame.
    – These radio hosts are morons because they don’t realize that Tebow was tailor made for what Sparano likes to do.
    – Ground and Pound and Roadgrater from the late 90’s will prevail. The Offensive line last year had an “on their heels” mentality as an offenstive line does when they’re a passing team, and with the new offense they will attack and start pushing people around.
    – x’s and o’s a direct snap to Tebow means that there will be another hat to block and open up holes — and guess what Tebow is a better passer than Brad Smith (and he will pass).

Yes they did we all know how mark will be under the microscope once OTA’s start. If he looks the wrong way the media will have a field day. Once again i would’ve not made this move but the Jets are not stupid either. They will handle this the right way and bottom line is Tebow is a football player and they will find a role for him. I would love nothing more than to see him covering TE’s. I am sure he would do that fine and i wouldn’t be surprised if he plays on both sides of the ball.

    Tebow is great athlete…great teamate..and even a greater person. And you know what? this trade wouldn’t be so bad if we had addressed our most pressing needs at RT,OLB,RB and FS. If Mike T. would have taken care of business and given this team some respectable FA, a lot of fans wouldn’t be so mad about tebow. What are the NYJ going to do..run to the left side of the line on every play?…even if that side is better then the right you still have to run at least run 40% of your running plays to the other side. Think about this for a moment…you run the risk of getting Mangold Moore and Brick getting injured by increasing your run plays to one side.

    Our family loves Tim Tebow and wishes him all the success he deserves with the Jets. He will bring a sense of TEAM WORK to the organization.

For a while it looked like NFL was an acronym for National Felons League with some of their players activities. Let the Haters say what they will. These are the same people who put Tom Brady’s abilities down and now kiss his a**! Tebow is a good football player who given the chance can be a great!! He brings more than football skills to the arena. He is a good influence with a die hard fan base that will inspire the Jets to victory. Tune out the haters and welcome Tebow to NY!!!

    Give you an example..Tebow in wildcat formation…runs to the right…Hunter or some no-name RT is infront of tebow. LB Patrick Willis of the 49ers( Which we play this year by-the-way) blows right by Hunter (i.e.Von Miller) and puts a kill shot on Tebow and tebow is out for the game(s) or even worse the season. Do you guys get the picture now?…It doesn’t matter who’s the QB. You can’t establish a running game nor a passing game if you don’t have a solid O-line.

    I’ve been a Jets fan for 32 years and I’ve been irritated by the Jets for 32 years. It has always been a team that almost won. Leon Hess wanted to see the Jets win before he died. A lot of Jets fans have rooted for the Jets for decades wanting to see the Jets win before they died. But Noooooooooo! Now let the Jets bosses do what they feel they need to do to WIN. If they bring in ten nobodies who never did nothing but the Jets win, I am happy.
    Jets TEAM, Grow up and win. At least Tebow thinks he can win. He’s won more than the Jets have. Tebow wants to win and when the Broncos were losing he came in and MADE the team win. Tebow is a worker, a winner, and a leader. Jets GO OUT THERE AND BELIEVE! Play to WIN.

    All you guys who wanted Mark out of here CONGRATS he is as good as gone it is only a matter of time now. Well after you see Tebow throw for 2 years YOU are going to be begging ON YOUR KNEES to get Mark back LOL. Be careful what you wish for cause sometimes you get it & it is NOT GOOD!

    Marks career as a Jet is offically over the media & the Tebow fanatics will not stop until Tebow starts. Get ready for a ton of new fans NONE of which are real Jet fans all just Tebow fans. Get ready for the CIRCUS cause it is coming to town & you can not stop it. The problem is Mark is guarnteed $20 MIL so for the next 2 years we are stuck with him & about 4 or 5 years from now when we have a new front office & head coach. We will be talking about who are we drafting to replace Tebow cause he is not the answer. THIS IS A DISASTER! Get ready for another 5 years of at best 500 ball.

    At least the Jets aren’t the same anymore. Last season against the Ravens I couldn’t believe how pathetic the Jets were. At least Tebow can run somewhere when the Ravens break through the OL. It seemed that there were no miracles for the Jets. Then Tebow came and he believes in miracles. If the Jets can play like a team, maybe we’ll see a miracle. What else is life for other than to see a miracle? Oh I forgot, you can live for SELF and play for SELF. I always believed for the Jets. Now with Tebow I believe MORE.

    1 or 2 years from now when Mark’s $20 MIL guarenteed is paid for & he is off this team. Tebow will be the starting QB & we will be running the wish bone that my 11 year old nephew runs & our O will be 3 yards & a cloud of dust.

    TomSpicer, for once I am in total and complete agreement with you….Here’s why Rex’s grand plan won’t work: 1)Teams know it’s coming. Worked for Mia and Den because it was a surprise. Won’t work consistently enough.2)Blocking is not as good as Den.3)Players make plays not schemes. Not enough play makers here. 4) Other teams had enough reasons to get up for Jets, they can now take it a notch higher……..If you think the 3 and outs hurt the defense last year, wait and see…….ALL THIS BECOMES MOOT IF MARK STEPS UP HIS EFFECTIVENESS…Problem is he didn’t do so well with pressure last year. Wow, what a zoo this thing has the potential of becoming…..ONE THING I GUARANTEE, IF IT GOES BAD, HEADS ARE GONNA ROLL…GUARANTEED!!

    Reading these are getting funnier all the time. Now this guy has a big S on his chest and a red cape. He doesn’t need an offensive line to run obviously. Oh yeah Tebow would have lasted real long in that Ravens game. Even if he was any good I doubt he would have survived the brutal beating Sanchez took in that game. I really can’t recall any NFL game I’ve watched in 50 years that I’ve been watching football where the offensive line played as badly as in that Ravens game, and the coaching staff made moves to make a bad situation worse with their in game juggling. But ol’ Superman Tebow would have saved the day!!! What are you people smokin’????

    You do realize that the Jets had a better defense last year, statistically, than the Broncos, right? The Jets finished at 20, the Broncos at 24. Neither one particularly stirs excitement but the fact is that both teams are very similar in their performance last season both on offense and defense. Also, McGahee ran for a total of about 1600 yards in the 3 years combined before last year. Maybe last year was a fluke or something since he hadn’t broken 1000 yards since 2007. Or maybe he got some of those yards because defenses were watching Tebow to make sure he didn’t run. Whatever, it worked. See if the same thing works for the Jets. You never know until you try!

    Until Tebow turns blood into wine or flesh into bread, he will never be my messiah nor my savior on the football field. Tebow is only one man and only one man will not solve this teams problems. Unless he can block for himself and cover the new age TEs and pass rush, then I would say yeah he is all we need. Do you all really have nothing else in your lives to believe in, that you have to put so much faith into this guy, not to mention that he is just a football player? I mean really people come on, get a hold of yourselves. All I am saying is that it will take a lot more then one Tebow to fix our problems. By the way, his true intentions were revealed, he came here to try to beat out MS. This is just not good any way you spell it….

    Change is good. Especially when things are stagnant and not working. Tim is not the answer to every problem of the NY Jets, nor is it easy to make a change from a fan base who loves you for what you are as much as what you do. Give Tim a chance to prove himself. Elway’s short sightedness in taking the easy way out and not developing a team, just hiring a hireling worn out QB is a continuation typical of his own superstar mentality “I AM THE BRONCOS”! Every QB they have hired was a failure, that’s why the team was in the shape it was before Tebow arrived. He has a commitment to excellence and team building, yet the only thing people want to see is his religious beliefs which fuel his integrity. Wait and see before running to judgement.

    Tim Tebow gives 100 % on every single play, every time he’s in the game. Can we name any Jets who did not quite live up to that standard last season ? A certain cornerback or SB MVP wide receiver perhaps ? Tim Tebow has a burning desire to win and will do anything to make that happen. He will not disrespect his coaches, fellow players or the fans, EVER. He will try as hard as he can to improve his game every time he practices, and he will be a pillar in the locker room and the NY-NJ community. Anybody who tells you the Jets don’t NEED Tim Tebow right now doesn’t have a clue and maybe should think about following a different sport.

    - Teams will have to spend more time preparing for both Sanchez and Tebow and opponents can’t possibly be complete.
    – A strong running game should keep the defense off the field and fresh, hiding what may not be as strong of a unit as two years ago.
    – Offensive line help in the draft, this DeCastro guy is a beast and mark my words the Jets will draft him.
    – Push for Sanchez, what is he doing at Kate Upton’s house with important games and the season on the line!!! (ahem, I know what he’s doing…)
    – I like Sanchez but someone said “Just Win Baby”.
    – Robinson, Todd, O’Brien, Ryan, Eason, Nagle, O’Donnell, Esiason, Testaverde, Pennington, Farve, Sanchez = 0 Super Bowls Forget arms – push DLs downfield and run over LBs & DBs!!

    The only place that Tebow would have run in that Ravens game is out of the stadium. This guy who fans love so much completed 46% of his passes last year. What do you think you`ll win with that kind of production? The Jets always make these kind of moves for pr and nothing else. This is not about winning a championship but publicity. That is why the Jets are setting themselves up for a big fall. And if they did it for football reasons they are more stupid than I gave them credit for. 43 years of mismanagement and counting.

    It’s fun to hear from all these people who wouldn’t have touched the Jets with a barge pole before and who, as usual with Tebow fans, seem to be veterans of the Temperance League rather than vet NFL fans. Valerie, you got it backwards, real change happens outside the system and in people’s daily lives, like with Gandhi, Malcolm X, and Aung San Suu Kyi, not with the clownshow in D.C. So football is WAY more important than who’s president. Bonnie, glad your family likes Tebow but the Jets family has endured desperate stunts like this for yrs and we’re tired of it. And I don’t know where you get that weird angle on Brady when he threw well and then incredibly well from early on while Tebow throws horrendously. Spicer, I’m with you all the way!

    davetharave, your name should be davetharookie. Lesson #1 is that desire doesn’t equal results, you mighta learned that from Rex by now. Lesson #2 is life including life in the NFL is not kindergarten, you shoulda learned that from the Lou Holtz days. All Tebow’s desire ain’t worth squat if you don’t have a complete, talented roster and a HC who understands the complete game of football, and right now we have neither of those things. I understand that a lot of Tebow fans are into magical thinking in a couple of very big ways, but as long as you engage in that on this site, I’lll ridicule you mercilessly. What the Jets need is to catch up with the way football is played in the NFL today, not to start praying to false idols who can’t throw.

    It would make sense to get Tebow if he could throw a ball, that’s really not the case. Think about it…MS needs to have a run game established and utilize play action to be effective throwing the ball. Our running backs need reps to do this, proved last year when Greene finally started getting more carries and started running better. Adding another QB to run a completely different style of offense takes away rhythm from the other QB and RB’s. Instead of answering so many questions from the last few years all they are doing is adding more; the most important being, what kind of rebuilding phase will be needed when Sanchez is gone and all you have is a wildcat offense and “quarterback”? Please don’t anybody buy a Tebow jersey…

    Here is what bothers me, and I mean REALLY bothers me…A fan who comes out and makes a statement like “I am now a Jet fan because they bring in Tim Tebow” OR “I am no longer a Colt fan because they released Peyton Manning” OR even worse “I am no longer a Jet fan because of the way they treated Mark Sanchez” I have been a Jet fan from the beginning, I have been through holy hell for more then 50 years. Joe Willie was my idol! But when he was traded to the Rams it never even entered my mind to jump the Jet ship and jump on to the Rams ship. Can one of you people explain to me how YOU can do it? How you can be a fan of one individual player and not the “team?”

    That’s right, john ski, for some weird reason Woody, Mr T, and Rex seem determined to try anything but what actually wins Super Bowls these days: Getting a big QB with a big arm and just as big a head for the game, committing to building a young team around him primarily thru the draft, and enjoying the nucleus of a highly competitive team for years if not decades. As long as the Jets resist this painfully obvious prescription for success, they will be known in the NFL for failure. And viewed by other than a few starry-eyed idealists and holy rollers on this site as the complete joke that they’ve become.

    As for running a “ground and pound?” When do you begin to address the O Line? Particularly the RT? The O line is the 2nd most important ingredient in running the ball. Who will the RB be? Shonn Greene? C’mon man. Time to get real. Maybe the FO actually believes that Tim Tebow, either in a complementary roll or a starting roll is the answer. Maybe he is…. “short term” but don’t underestimate the DCs and HCs around the league to come up with answers to any and all gimmick offenses. I like Tim Tebow. I like what he stands for and I hope I am wrong, but I honestly believe this will blow up in their (NY Jets) face.

    davetherave. You are absolutely right. Tim Tebow gives 100% on every single play when he is on the field. No one doubts that. But at some point it comes down to your expertise, your ability to get the job done on a consistent basis, and by consistent I mean season after season after season (Peyton, Brady,Brees etc) and by “job” in this case I mean QB. The gimmick plays are fine for maybe one season but the defenses WILL catch up to them, then what? You are left with a running QB with no real chance of ever being that prototypical QB all teams are seeking. And at what cost? That still hasn’t been determined.

    I’m unsure what the cap looks like after this trade. But listening to Tanny yesterday made it not look so good. We surely have a higher than average amount in the QB position. But we have no “Elite” qb. RT is normally not a 1st rd pick, but it is our biggest need. Safety is almost as bad as RT. We also need someone at ILB as BS has lost more than a step.
    WR,RB and OLB are simply fluff positions right now. We need good players to fill these absolute need positions. They are not coming in FA.
    Does Stanton complain his way out? He doesn’t want to be a 3 or 4. And if he does stay, what are we gonna do about McElroy? The kid has awareness like some of the greats.

The only move I liked was not to try to keep Shottenhiemer, but they are making up for that. as a Jet Fan, anything less than a superbowl win, with this side show, will be unacceptable for me. If Tebow is as charitable as he wants people to think he is , he should have gone to one of the small market teams, that would of been an act of charity, and good for football.

    Best case scenario: MS learns a valuable life lesson in humility from TT & realizes that the team’s success is more important than his being on the field for every offensive play. That would lead to a win/win situation for the individual & the team. If he follows Michael Lombardi’s advice & allows his ego to cloud his judgement then it becomes a lose/lose.

    Am I the only Jim Leonhard fan? Was his salary too high? Hopefully he clears waivers and the Pats don’t sign him. He is important to our team. Does anyone remember the play he got injured on?
    This makes me think we’re not going to pick up a RT in the 1st round.

    For the folks that are saying this is a bad thing…there no reason to get worked up and say how bad this is until you have a reason to say so. its all speculation at this point…..Tim Tebow is an awesome competitor/ inspiration he has way too many upsides to bash him…… I’m so excited for this year. TT will unite the Team

    I am genuinely saddened to see Tebow leave. We had something special in Colorado. The eyes of the nation were on Denver like never before. They traded away the NFL’s top receiver, Brandon Lloyd and their 2nd best, Brandon Marshall. They did everything they could to undermine him. He took a team that’s 3-15 without him to 10-6 with him 2 games into the playoffs; the 2nd best winning pct. since 2005, other than Joe Flacco. Tebow did it with the most pitiful sorry excuse of a team. They will move heaven and earth to help Manning, the $90 million dollar man. They did little to help Tebow, a Heisman Trophy winning, All-American, national champion. Unbelievable. Treat him well. Denver sure didn’t. We already miss him.

    I’ve always looked forward to a new season, even after some of our darkest days. Not so this year. This is a new and different feeling. This simply does not add up. One win away from the Superbowl for two years and all we needed was to axe Shotty and fine tune, instead we discard key players and regressed. Anything is possible, but I’m with the skeptics. My arms are crossed and I’m in a “show me” mode.

    Tebow brings with him a plethora of fans. I crossed out the Bronco insignia on my Tebow jersey but will still wear it. Now, I need to get me a Jets Tebow jersey. Can’t wait ’til theycome out. You guys helped yourselves on so many levels. Now that the kid’s got 16 pro games under his belt, you’re gonna see something special. This “horrible passer” passed for 316 yrds against Pittsburgh in the playoffs; a feat Roethlisberger never did. Favre & Brady have only done it twice.. He was getting better with each game. As he continues to mature, I have every confidence you’re gonna see a QB like you haven’t seen in NJ/NY since Namath. I also think he’ll do better than Peyton’s little brother…if given the chance.

    Advice to Sanchez: Come back fit, play loose, and be confident. Play your best and don’t look over your shoulder. The worst that will happen is you move on to another team that will probably have competent coaches who will further develop your talent and make you even better. You’ve done some impressive things and possess winning qualities. Don’t lose any sleep worrying about this sideshow, just let it rip and play to win.

    two totally diferent QB`s means lots of hard work for the players around them especially the O line if Tebow is our number one it will be a waste of money on santonio holmes as you can`t` catch balls that aren`t thrown and the guy certainly can`t block

    Say what you want – if Sanchez were to be traded, I bet you there would be several teams interested in him and as Howie D said “competent coaches would further develop his talent”. There are negatives and positives on Sanchez and both sides have there merits. But Sanchez was thrown in the fire right away and for the past three seasons has seen receivers come and go, an offensive philosophy that has literary changed from game to game, an offensive line that has dropped off dramatically, a running back with no lateral movement that trips over his own feet on the open field and of course a head coach that “didn’t have his hand on the pulse of the team”. I am sick and tired of Tanny’s baloney.

    The larger pt that most are missing, and scjoe is making, is that we had a team with concrete needs and execution issues. The last thing we needed was competing offensive strategies, much less everybody getting worked up about what will happen in the LR next. joe is right about the publicity/revenue increase aspect, though I suspect that will be short-lived when the team continues to lose, which I see as very likely. The focus needed to be 100% on Sanchez becoming great, now it’s on MS vs TT, a luxury that a team shy of 6 or 7 starters (RT, LG if Slauson is out, WR, DL, OLB, at least 1 S) can’t remotely afford. “The Titanic sails at dawn,” as Dylan said…

    This seems to be a very positive move in many ways. Talk about high character, does it get any better? I can see the red zone scoring and the 3rd and short downs having even greater suceess. If there is any team that can work Tebow into the system successfuly, it’s the Jets. I believe Sanchez can put ego aside and see this as not a regression but an evolution of the offense into a very efficient unit. Can’t wait for the draft. I may have to get a “Tanny” jersey this year.

    The move to the Jets instead of the Jags is a total business decision. The move prolongs his career. He will always be welcome in Florida. but that is where his career will end. This adds a year or two.
    I always believed Tebow deserved a shot in the NFL. He IS a winner.
    I just don’t like the nonsense that is sure to follow.
    Under the radar is not a bad place to be.

    While it may have been wrong and mocking of me to make the Praying (Tebowing) comment, It was fairly harmless. Is it any less mocking to use a faithful Christian player and the NFL as a platform for preaching? (not saying Tebow does that… Tebow Fans do)

    It’s tough to swallow all the anti Tebow venom which of course is conveniently covered up by saying it’s about his QB abilities and not personal. Very shallow and transparent. If only those people could put their personal issue aside they would see this for what it is. Acquiring Tebow is an admission by Rex, Mike and Woody that they NEVER should have let Brad Smith get away. Not only does Tebow allow us to get back to that 2010 offense but here’s a news flash…Tim is an UPGRADE to Smith for running the spread option and wildcat. If we can improve his passing by even 10% I’d say there’s gonna be quite a few of the sports desk taking heads eating crow this season.

    It is very easy to say SB’s aren’t won by two QB systems seeing as its’ commonality is relatively new and due to the lack of franchise QB’s in a 32 team league. Mark is a good QB and almost got us there twice. Adding Tim gives us back many more options in crucial moments in the game that we didn’t have last season. Last season was the first in 3 years we DIDN’T HAVE those options available and we suffered for it. As for the needs in other areas, I don’t see why anyone thinks this means they won’t be addressed. Acquiring Tebow hasn’t created any additional salary cap issues and the draft is still looming. No matter what you think about managements ability to go and get the right players you cant deny that they do make moves to try.

    One thing is for sure, MS is the reason why this is happening. His very inconsistent play has aloud the Jets to doubt him. If it wasn’t for his great play in the playoff’s than MS would not be a starter here at all. If MS can move the chains and stop the turnovers than TT doesn’t see any playing time. It’s that simple.

    6. Even Gator haters, at a minimum, respect Tim.

    All of you ‘Tebow is bad for the Jets’ people don’t get it yet. Regardless of who plays what, where, and how good, Tim being a Jet is a Jet asset. Ask his peers.

As for the “hater” nonsense, other than when clearly joking I didn’t like name-calling back when it was gooks and FNG’s and I don’t like it now. But this isn’t a ’64 Tom or a IRA or scjoe site, it’s a Jets site and unless somebody yells fire on a crowded server I say anybody can say whatever they want. And I say the Wildcat is for teams with loser O’s and HC’s who can’t run their O’s, like joe says in his 2 QBs/no QBs post. Brad Smith and his handful of good plays wasn’t worth the retardation of Sanchez’s development and Tebow will have the same effect while teams with elite QBS and 21st-century O’s keep leaving us in the dust. Bad move when we need so much else.

    What is being lost through all of this, what is even more important is the fact that the free agents out there who are capable of coming in to NY and upgrading positions that need to be upgraded are slowly but surely signing everywhere else throughout the league. If anyone, including Mike Tannenbaum believes all these needs can be addressed strictly through the draft you are dead wrong. Just can’t happen.

    From Bucky Brooks today: “Some [Jets] players and coaches believe [Sanchez] has become complacent with his work habits and needs to feel the pressure of a capable backup to take his game to another level. Sanchez never had to fear losing time to past backups like Mark Brunell; his lackadaisical preparation often went unpunished by Jets coaches. ” Just another reason I say that Rex isn’t emotionally or technically capable at HC. The proper response to what Brooks is talking about isn’t to behave like some kind of paranoid White House, campaigning on lies without dealing with the actual problem. None of the coaches I name as models for what we need at HC, from Lombardi to Cowher, would ever take this cowardly, counter-productive approach.

    More Brooks: “Ryan’s experience facing various versions of the Wildcat as a DC might have prompted the team to acquire Tebow. Ryan told reporters at LSU’s pro day how difficult it can be for D’s to prepare for the multifaceted option attack and he intends for the Jets’ version, as run by Tebow, to be equally problematic for opponents. He cited the success current Jets OC Tony Sparano had using the Wildcat with MIA in 2009. 2 BIG SIGNS OF THE AMATEUR HERE: (1) Living in the past (2009, great, the Wildcat’s been dead since at least 2010.) (2) Guiding the O more by way of your knowledge of D than of O itself. A real HC is himself “multifaceted” in terms of his understanding of the game. As the game goes forward, Rex goes backward, what a joke.

    Yes, scjoe, it’s pretty strange, and more than a little sad, to see the way some Jet fans seem to think that Tebow’s mere presence on the team and in the LR will instantly (or even eventually) have some kind of magically residual effect on pro football reality. If Mr T could turn 5 draft picks into the 6 or 7 starters that we need in less than 9 months, that would be a bigger miracle than the one J.C. pulled with the loaves and the fishes. To work a slight alteration on Jethro Tull’s brilliant “Wind-Up,” “I don’t believe you/You had the whole damn thing all wrong/They’re [Sanchez and Tebow] not the kind who’ll wind up in the win column on Sunday…”

    Don’t forget the Colts, joe, they won one of those Super Bowls with this QB that DEN just picked up, which enabled them to unload this very nice boy named Tim Tebow who throws like he’s still a high school boy. I’m starting to think that the big guy upstairs needs new glasses, because he seems to have substituted “Jets fans” for “Job” in the big book, putting us through endless trials and tortures. What’s more, the evil moneychangers of our day — those who’d rather sell T-shirts than win championships — seem to be riding high. Oh well, like at the end of Bergman’s WINTER LIGHT when the priest regains his faith by empathizing with J.C. on the cross when God was silent, I guess we have to keep hoping Curtis Martin hears us someday…

    IRA,
    I agree with what you said about 09 and 010. They had a plan, play solid D and run the ball and take pressure off their young QB. But last year they went away from all that. Trying to throw the ball with a weaker o-line and no run game. As far as D, they just have not addressed the issues that need to be. No pass rush since Abraham left, can’t cover a tight end. The moves they have made have been to make the headlines. I really believe we need more of a FOOTBALL guy running the show. We need young players through the draft and they trade 2 picks to get to get headlines. They really should study how the Giants have won their last 2 Super Bowls. It takes time and is not done through FA.

    Woody realizes that Tebow will get more billboards than Eli. Whats wrong with that picture Eli has only won 2 SB’s.

It goes on.
    But thats what he wants cause the Giants won the Super Bowl again!
    This was a PR move not a football one. If we had a FOOTBALL guy running the show, this never happens.

You sound like a 7 year old that just watched his first football game. You don’t even live in NY how can you call yourself a fan ? JUST LEAVE you old fool !!! YOU KNOW NOTHING ABOUT HOW THE GAME IS REALLY PLAYED You just make up things as you go along

    For those who are critical of Tebow, I don’t care if he moonwalks or plays hop-scotch when the ball is snapped to him. There are only two things that matter to the fans; does he win and two, is he entertaining? There is a resounding yes on both accounts. I miss him here in CO. Stupid, stupid move to let him go. He takes a horrid 3-15 team without him and goes 10-6 with, including 2 playoff games. What person with any sense at all, takes a Heisman Trophy winning, All-American, national champion QB and trades away the NFL’s top reciever, Brandon Lloyd and the Bronco’s 2nd best receiver, Brandon Marshall and expects him to win. They undermined him every step of the way but couldn’t keep him down.

    Two days in, wayne, the New York papers are already filled with talk, including from Jenkins, about how the Jets know not what they do or, rather, have done in getting Tebow. But here’s the quote from an article in the Post that interests me most, especially in its utter predictability: “The players fear the worst could come this fall with a divided locker room, Sanchez sapped of confidence and Tebow playing a bigger role despite being a lesser passer. It is difficult to find anyone outside of general manager Mike Tannenbaum and coach Rex Ryan who feels optimistic about this move.” Exactly what I suspected, of course, and exactly why those two must go ASAP.

    JET FANS must buy their tickets before the “Tebow fans” get to them, or it will be a mess
    We have to have Plax back. If we were going to get him for one year, we have to try a second. It took Vick a whole season and off-season to get his step back. Plax was one of the reasons why our red-zone O was so much better last season. Although, I still miss Edwards and Cotchery.
    Mark Sanchez can get us there. Lets block and get open this year.

    The Jets problem is the Patriots, and Tebow offers nothing to help that match up. If the Jets can’t beat the New England and win the AFC East they won’t get any home playoff games – and no home playoff games (usually) means no Super Bowl. PLus you always have a potential rubber game with the Pats in the playoffs. The type of offense the Pats run is Tebow Kryptonite! By the time Tebow gets around to scoring the game is over! Tebow had two starts against the Pats last year – anyone remember how they turned out? VERY BADLY! Pats won both – 45 to 10 (in the playoffs) and 41 to 23 (week 15)! This is a pathetic move by a franchise more interested in headlines than championships.

    LET me remind some the ONLY THING THAT MATTERS IN THE NFL IS WINNING THE SUPER BOWL thats it .As i posted earlyier theres many a qb that has won division titles ,confrence titles ,playoff games ect WITHOUT WINNING THE SUPERBOWL.The last time i checked TEBOW HASNT WON A SUPERBOWL. Logic dictates John Elways resume MAKES HIM MORE QUALIFYED THAN ANY FAN ON THIS FORUM TO EVALUATE A PLATER and we all know what ELWAY THOUGHT OF TEBOWS ABILITY TO QB A TEAM.

    So, Elway knows football? No doubt he knew how to be a pocket passer back in the 1980s and 1990s. He’s been selling cars up ’til a year and a half ago. Let’s look at his decisions. His keen football instincts brought the pocket passing Broncos to 3-15 over a 2 two year period and got rid of the top receivers. Genius, indeed. The fan’s choice, “Tebow”, brought them to 10-6 and into the playoffs which haven’t been in Denver for years and years, despite having one of the sorriest supporting casts in football. So much for Elway “knowing football.” He knows a lot about football but can’t see the forest for the trees.

    Cimini sure hits it out of the park with this one: “Let’s do some number crunching: The Jets had to cough up $2.5 million to close the Tebow deal and they ate a $500,000 signing bonus with Drew Stanton, who lasted a week on the roster. With that $3 million, they could’ve made a strong play for free-agent WR Mario Manningham, who received $3.55 million in total first-year compensation from the 49ers. He would’ve filled a huge need.”

    Ah, why must I always explain, as Van Morrison once sang. Let me put you straight, Carol: I played organized football practically before Rex was born, and before Shea was built. I was at just about every Jet game ever played at Shea. I’m probably as qualified as anyone on this site to work for the Jets at a high level and by the way, sure I like the Pats, I like every old AFL team. (Do you know what the AFL was?) But I don’t like the Pats the way I love the Jets and right now, the Pats and the way they run their org are making us look sick. If I was to wallow in the mud with you, I’d say why don’t YOU go root for some other team? Uninformed, ignorant “fans” like you who do nothing but hurl insults only reduce the Jets’ chances for success.

    And hey Carol (and Randy), what’s with this agist stuff? I look up to the guys on this site who say they saw the Titans at the Polo Grounds, which I never did, just as much as I admire the young fans who grew up on the modern NFL. (Sure wish I could say that last about our HC.) Well, you just better not come inside with that weak stuff at any sports bar out here, as I’m pretty sure I’m on safe ground when I say all the female Jet fans I know are probably older than you and look half your age, we take that look young/think young/feel young stuff seriously out here in SoCal. I recall your NYC depression well “but I was so much older then, I’m younger than that now.” Maybe one day you’ll drop Rex’s 1940s view of O and grow younger yourself.

Are you also saying that because our “opinions” differ from your “opinions” we are terrible fans? Just trying to clear that up and make some kind of sense out of it.

    JOE, I think anyone who has a decent football head on there shoulders would agree with you that the 2 QB system will not win any superbowls. But unfortunately there are not too many all pro QB’s out there so we are stuck with MS and TT. Most Jets fans who are excited about this are just being optimistic.Anyone can clearly see that if Jets don’t make playoff’s next year than Mr. T and Rex are out next year. I really wish Woody would bring someone in who can evaluate talent better.

  313. By Jet Fan Since '64 Tom on Mar 26, 2012 | Reply

    Here’s a frank post from the NFL site: “Under the veneer of showy religiosity, Tebow’s ego is as big as any NFL player’s. It’s just somehow holier because he’s such a publicity-hungry Christian. He’s never going to settle for being the part-time 2nd string quarterback. The Tebow hype machine is going to eat Sanchez alive, deservedly or not. Maybe all the Jets powers-that-be want is money and ratings. They’re certainly not winning any championships with this joke of a plan. The Giants can rest easy.” The same story has Simms and Montana dismissing the 2-QB idea and there’s Rex, upping his joke status by talking about the Wildcat like it’s brand new and saying TT might get up to 20 snaps a game. It’s the REAL Pats fans who love this, Carol!

    First game was in ’64. Have had season tix since ’76. We all know the type of grief we have suffered during the last 43 years, especially the last 4. But what has happened since the initial pursuit of Nnamdi, is above and beyond. So many moves have been headscratchers. And this latest move has crushed me. Not because of the player, but because of the inevitable circus that will follow. The chances of this move working out are incredibly slim. Cap money has been wasted due to impatience. Money that has been guaranteed, is rewarding mediocrity (and that is being kind). I keep hoping that I’m going to wake up from this nightmare that started the day the walkout ended. I’m raising the white flag. I can’t do it anymore. No more season tickets.

    With a rare Sunday off, I had time to obsess on the Jets more than usual. So I ask you to consider: After months of “Mark’s the starter,” NOW Mr T says if “Mark” suffers a few 3 and outs, he might be pulled for Tebow. Rex says he’ll use TT at positions other than QB. And meanwhile we sign a few scrub FAs and don’t address at least 6 or 7 trouble spots in our starting lineup. Does this sound to anyone but the most unhinged dreamer like a smart response to our problems of last season and to the the constant improvement of the Pats and Giants? And while I don’t fall for folks who speak with forked tongue, I gotta wonder how Jet players feel about playing for ‘em. Mara’s David Carr crack is the funniest line to come out of this mess so far.

    Also VERY interesting to me that Rex felt it was necessary to tell the press that getting Tebow was Mr T’s idea. Needless to say, Rex has made no such comment about anyone the Jets have picked up by any means to date, and such comments are almost never made by NFL HC’s. In fact, I can’t remember the last time a HC made a statement like that, other than when upon quitting his job and even then it’s rare. I’ve heard enough CYA in big business to know it when I hear it, though, and that’s what this sounds like to me…

As for the 46%, you have to be more than a boxscore fan to understand this one. Add in the number of drops he had by receivers and im sure it would be well over 55%. Sure this is not great but it all ties in together.. Thats why i said go to youtube and watch for youself and you will see the progress within Tebow.

    Since Manning came to Denver and had is own media circus, things have died down. Manning is just a passer and not much else. Boring. Tebow brought fascination and pageantry that Manning never could. The odds of Manning bringing the sad-sack Broncos to the SB in the next couple years is just about zero.

The fact that Giants will now have to share the spotlight is a real downer to him, no doubt. Wait ’til u see Tebow kicking his boy’s butts. Then we’ll see what he’s got to say. Check out Tebow’s stats with an identical team record it’s prior year. Manning went 1-6 his first season. Tebow went 2-1, doubling Manning’s first year wins in only 3 games.

    Mike V – The Denver D giving up 41 and then 45 points isn’t Tebow’s fault. You’re right about only scoring 10 points the first game. That criticism is legit. However, a D’s got to be able to limit the other team to less than 23 points if they expect to win. Tebow got Denver 23. It doesn’t matter how many he scores if his Defense is going to be giving up 40 something points.

    Joe, Tebow’s short career of 16 pro games has a 60% winning record, two of them playoffs. Elway’s over an entire career is 55%. To expect a guy to win the SB with only 14 regular season game’s experience is pure fantasy. To bring a 1-4 two games into the playoffs is impressive by any standard. I’m sure you know that.

I’m frankly surprised Randy printed it, since it’s all personal attack. Nowhere do you say anything about football nor show any understanding of it, you just trash everything personal about me that you can. This can only mean you haven’t watched, coached, and played football since 1962 or so as I did when I was barely an infant, so why waste time on you? FL.PETE, I haven’t seen your name on this site until yesterday, so it’s understandable you’ve never seen any of the positive posts (or correct predictions) that I’ve made.

    And just for the record, Carol, I’m younger than you think, since I started playing football much younger than most.

And oh yeah, though I run my own business and consult to many others, during the NFL season I turn down all work on Sunday, Monday night, and Thursday night. That’s why I know the history of this game and can speak coherently about it rather than wallowing in personal insults. As for stats, Tebow’s are hugely pathetic and “he beat” a PIT team missing 5 starters. Enjoy your further talking without thinking.

I always quote sources, whether they’re musicians, sportswriters, or athletes, as I had to do when I was a journalist. As for your truly discriminatory (really more like Nazi-esque) hatred of people you don’t know and have never met, try going to an L.A sports bar before “imagining” what they’re like. You might meet some pretty tough USC fans, which by the way is the school our #1 QB comes from.

    And by the way, Carol, that’s “no idea,” not “know idea.” Medicine Bow, it’s always nice to see new Jet fans on the site but it’s nicer when they give a damn about the team winning instead of all this extraneous stuff. Anyone who’d rather have Tim Tebow on this edition of the Jets instead of Mario Manningham isn’t too concerned with this team but then, I could tell you were mostly another pro-Tebow booster from your first post. And sorry to introduce you to the adult world, but Christians can be just as megalomaniacal and hypocritical as anyone else, as was that poster’s pt on the NFL site. I suggest you start reading up on the history of the Catholic Church starting around, oh, maybe the time of the Spanish Inquisition…

    Just saw the news conference with Tebow. I have to admit…this young man is on the right path. I just hope the temptations of NYC don’t get to him and then something comes out and the media destroys this young man. Back to football, I hope that this is not a media stunt for PSL’s because if it is I have lost respect for Mr.Johnson. While all this Hoop-la is going on we are missing out on the FA that are left that could help this team out. Don’t know if anyone wants to sign now with NYJ because they see Mike T. is a liar a man that can’t be trusted. And players just like us fans are going to watch what happens this season, and if things go south…Heads will roll…Mike T and Rex will be gone and take Mike Pettine with you…

    Medicine Bow Co – The whole point of “Tebow Football” (AKA the Single Wing) is to move the ball and control the clock on offense to give your opponent less possessions, keep you defense somewhat fresh, and keep the score low to have a chance at the end. Both Pats/Broncos games were over by halftime (scores at the half were 27-16 & 35-7), the Pats don’t wait for you to catch up – they play their style of football no matter what the score is; they are relentless. Tebow offers nothing at all to help us counter their style of play. As I said before, Patriot football is Tebow Kryptonite. And TT can’t pass to boot! He really doesn’t offer us much in the two games we have to win in the regular season. It’s just another PR stunt to grab headlines.

    Medecine bow you fotgot to list the number of SUPER bowl Rings Tebow has. There is not a football authority in the country who would EVEN TRY TO COMPARE TEBOWS quarterbacking ability WITH THAT OF P MANNINGS (its beyond a joke )Tebow had a great college career and appears to be a wonderful person BUT the only thing that matters in the NFL IS WINNING THE SB.History dictates to do so today a quarterback MUST HAVE A SKILL SET FAR GREATER THAT WHAT TEBOW OFFERS .

    Mike the problem on this team stems from all the failed draft choices .If you look at the PATS ,STEELERS GIANTS SAINTS PACK they make their draft choices (ESP AT QB )count and almost NEVER BOTHER with the high priced FA.A secondary problem here (FRANCESS ADDRESSED THIS )IS THE TERRIBLE UPPER LEVEL MANAGEMENT OF THE TEAM HENCE THE TEBOW SITUATION.

    Thanks for the real football talk, Mike V and joe, the site has been sick with this rapturous Tebow junk for days now and I for one can’t wait to see the end of it. Yeah, Mike V, that was scjoe’s pt, too, about the game in which Peyton beat the feared MIA Wildcat with 15 mins on the field. And of course a lot of us have saying for yrs now that until we can compete with high-powered O’s like NE’s that just pile it on until the game’s out of reach (by contrast, we have a HC who yells at Greene for scoring a game-winning TD), we’re going nowhere. Great job on the Steelers thing, joe, this Medicine Bow dude seems to have watched a lot more of Tebow’s lousy play on DEN than he watched the NFL in the ’70s.

    Medicine Bow Co. It is not about popularity, publicity, adoring any one particular player, religion or how stand up of a guy Tim Tebow may be.No one here would argue that point with you. It is about filling needs on your ball club during the off season in the best manner that you can. We, as Jet fans here know exactly what those needs are and one of them is definitely not a running QB with a 46% completion percentage. We all offer opinions and no one, and I mean NO ONE can say at this point if this move helps to improve the NY Jets. In my “opinion” it will not. We will find out after the 2012 season has ended, not before.

    Hey Jet Fan Since ’64 Tom – the bit about Rex yelling at Shonn Greene was really, really funny… and unfortunately true. I just don’t see where all this faith in Tebow comes from. The guy really can’t throw at all and has turned the ball over 15 times in the 23 games he’s played in. And as far as a clutch player – anybody remember week 17 vs the Chiefs? Win and you’re in? TT turned it over twice, had less than 100 yards total offense, and final score was Broncos 3 Chiefs 7! That’s football? I watched TT’s press conference today and it is obvious that he is clueless about what he has gotten himself into. I guess Woody, Rex, and Mike T didn’t show up so they wouldn’t have to explain what they think they are doing.

    Thanks, Mike V, you probably also got a kick out of that moment in the Giants game, I think it was, when Sanchez rushed over to Greene on the sideline to say something urgently scolding and Greene nodded obediently and then, the second MS was gone, made the funniest “Whatever!” face I’ve ever seen. Guys, there’s a kind of magical thinking going on with some of these Tebow fans which is fine for them but like scjoe says, we haven’t done much of anything to address all kinds of holes we have in the lineup — and no, 6th and 7th round picks won’t do it in one yr. But as you know, for some “fan” is short for “fanatic.” I stopped falling for this kind of hype decades ago, I just wanna see a smart, aggressive Jet org that plays to win big.

    Fl Pete.. You say your opinions are in line with the decisions made by the NY Jets FO. My question to you is “where is it written that those decisions are necessarily the right decisions?” As a long time Jet fan I have seen FO administrators come and go, a multitude of times,what I have not seen in more then 40 years is a trip to the SB, so, their track record is not very good, is it? The fact that the current administration made this decision to bring in another QB with all the other glaring needs the club has, to me, sounds like a risky decision. The decision the Pats made to bring in Haynsworth and Ocho Cinco pales in comparison.That is based solely on who Tim Tebow is.

    Also Fl Pete. I too played, and coached the game at the youth level. Although I would agree with you that creating negativity at the team level is something you want to avoid, I have to disagree with you about creating or just merely being negativity at the fan level would be any distraction what so ever. This FO, or any FO for that matter, although saying what is politically correct, could care less about negativity at the fan level. As for the accuracy issue of TT? Regardless of the WR drops (which ALL QBs have to deal with) he HAS accuracy issues! I have watched Sanchez the past 3 seasons deal with his own accuracy issues and it has not been pleasant.

    Tom – Having lived in NJ, I haven’t cheered much for anything in NY. Seems you haven’t had a lot to cheer about either. You say I don’t want the Jets to win because I think Tebow to be a far better addition than Manningham. Really? I see another shining posts of yours which trashes Tebow for his religious views. Is that the kind of person you are? If you want to talk religion, I’d be glad to talk religion but it was my impression that this site was for talking football, not trashing people for their religious views.

    Well said, scjoe. However, let’s get real. The NFL is primarily a business. Is Tebow going to generate income? You betcha. People like me will be watching them on TV, buying jerseys, and simply discussing. Look at this thread. I saw Tebow on O’Reilly and Hannity tonight. Didn’t see anyone from any other team. No Giants on TV tonight. He’s the talk of the town. Give thanks that he accepted the Jets’ offer. He could be the talk of someone else’s town. Like it or not, delude yourself or not, NFL football is a pleasant distraction. We couldn’t disagree more about the future impact of Tebow but we’ll all know in January. I think you’ll be eating crow then…but I very much look forward to finding out

    Joe – I do believe my comments regarded the 85-86 Bears. You’re right about the multiple SB wins. Granted. But my observations regarded that defense; not that of another time or season. The NFL network? Is this the same “Steelers great” expert who said no one remembers the Bears, Rams and Saints SB teams? I saw all these defenses you speak of…all of them. NONE of them was so dominant, so punishing and (other than on a single mid-season game one night in Miami), crushed everything in its path…not just defeat them. The metioric rise of the Monsters of the Midway defense had 3 guys who have already made the HOF. Help me out here. You said Pitt had 4 HOF players on one of their teams. Which year was that?

    Mike V – You say you don’t know where all this faith in Tebow comes from. Let’s start with him being a Heisman Trophy winner, All-American and national champion. Then you see him win 60% of his games in his nearly 1st full season of play. You conveniently omit him taking a 3-15 to the playoffs going 10-6 in which he throws for 316 yds. in his first playoff game. Pretty good for a guy who “can’t throw.” See how many QBs who “made it in the NFL” have accomplished that feat with a pathetic team like the Broncos. Check it out and then tell me why one should not be extremely optomistic about his future. You cite the 46% completion rate. I saw the passing every week. He had a horrid receiving corps and it takes two to make a completion.

    Joe – Thx for the info. I remember that game. It was a good game. Very competitive. Unfortunately for entertainment, the Bears so embarassed the teams you speak of that they never were games at all. Did ANY of the Steelers teams, ANY, ever hold the first 2 playoff opponents scoreless and 3 legitimate points to the SB opponent. (Bears allowed a TD when everyone was already celebrating and the contest was over and fans were heading for the field.) Did the Steelers do that EVER? No. Well I’d go on and on but I’m spending too much time on this site. Besides, as it pertains to Tebow, we pretty much keep saying the same things. All I can say is, “PLEASE SEND HIM BACK TO COLORADO AND TAKE ELWAY AND FOX AWAY…FAR AWAY.

    Medicine Bow, you think anybody who doesn’t anoint TT the next Unitas is down with Pontius Pilate. Actually I’m down with Jesus and he would’ve pegged TT as the obnoxious, publicly religious narcissist that he is, go read Matthew and the Sermon on the Mount for proof of that. Judging by your foolish mentioning of the ’85 Bears in the same universe as the ’70s Steelers, I’ll bet you slept all Sunday in your youth and missed church AND football. And QBs rarely win games all by themselves, though elite ones have done it. TT put 18 pts on the board p/game, couldn’t win DEN into the playoffs vs KC, and as Spicer says crumbled in the clutch. He’s an overrated fraud as a QB and maybe as a role model too. I wish him well, though — on another team.

    Hey Keith Baker, what I’m saying is that Tebow changes your style of offense unless you use him as a running back (which he doesn’t want to do) because we know he can’t throw a ball well at all. I know there’s gonna be whole load of Tebow jerseys out there, it’s inevitable. My comment is one of wishful thinking to get Woody to stop the madness.

    That’s just it Joe, the Wildcat is either a gimmick or a tool for a quarterback who can’t throw very well and/or runs fantastically. With Tebow you know they wanna run the ‘Cat and you can put defenders in there specifically for it. Hence NE crushes them last year. Just think about what they had with Brad Smith… His wildcat averaged 9 yds a carry and he was a record setting QB at Missouri (think that was where). Oh, and he was at the top of the league in kickoff return yds; and he wasn’t worth $3mil?!! Seems to me if you’re looking to pull off all this craziness he’s the perfect player, and Tebow cost just as much and can do far less. I admire Sparano for figuring out Pennington’s arm needed help; our Jets/Sanchez don’t need this.
