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.

Ahhh George...
The Football Gods are fickle. They give the G-Men a Lombardi Trophy and then they give thye Jets Touchdown Jesus! It's going to be Comedy Gold. ESPN probably just wet themselves with joy now that they combine New York with Tim Tebow.

Have fun! ;)

Ugghhhhhhh
George, I think I heard your sounds of pain. This is going to be a disaster for the team. Personally, I cannot stand anything about Tebow and his antics, but I have to say... he's not the worst QB in the league. Overhyped? Yes. Overrated? Certainly. An evangelical self promoter? Can't deny that.

I was watching from home when the news hit. I was about to thank Mrs. Phipps for bringing me the guacamole nacho platter from my favorite taco truck down the block, but instead I groaned and screamed.

Ah, NFL draft day.... did you see the thing with the Saints coach? it's shaping up to be a helluva year.
