No, No, No

I was drinking my morning coffee when the headline flashed across the bottom of the screen. That sound you heard was me choking and sputtering.

My Jets have given up two perfectly good draft picks for Tim Tebow, the worst quarterback in the National Football League.

Gak.

What the hell are they thinking over there at Gang Green central?

Mark Sanchez is not, as yet, Eli Manning, but he is a talented quarterback with a good arm and he completes more than fifty per cent of his passes, none of which can be said for Tebow. The last thing he needs is a stadium full of Timomaniacs screaming for Tebow every time a pass falls incomplete. The divisions in the Jets locker room last season were well documented. THis is just going to make those problems a thousand times worse.

Nor do I think that Tebow's conspicuous piety will play well in the Big Apple. This is the city that once embraced Broadway Joe. Tebow would fit better in... well, if Branson, Missouri had an NFL team, that would be a perfect fit.

Jets trade
My sympathies to you and all Jets fans. I am a diehard season ticket holding Eagles fan and the only place Tebow would play worse with the crowd than NY is Philly. You embraced Broadway Joe, we've taken a convicted felon into our hearts. (Don't let anyone tell you different, Mike plays big 'round here.) Gotta love the east coast

Re: Jets trade
Ha. I would pay good money to see what the Philly fans could come up with for that guy. Maybe a trebuchet loaded with Buddy Jesus statuettes?

Re: Jets trade
Still, I'd take two praying Tebows (and not one more) over a single Vick. Yes, Vick is a better player (probably), but I need another few years to forgive him for his criminal past. If Tebow ended up in Baltimore, I'd groan and hope for the best. If Vick ended up here, I'd become an Eagles fan... or maybe even a Steelers fan.
