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.


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.

Calm down George! They need a big name to motivate Sanchez. The one thing people say Tebow has that Sanchez does not is a strong work ethic. While I don't like Tebow's throwing motion more than anyone else who watches football, I don't think this is the kiss of death for the Jets. I'm also not sure if Sanchez is the best answer for the Jets at QB to begin with, USC QBs rarely translate well to the NFL long term.

I agree that his faith is not going to be the selling point in New York that it was in Colorado, but it is something I think could keep motivating Tebow to improve and to not take criticism personally. No one has handled media scrutiny better in the NFL right now, sans Tom Brady (for the record, I'm a Giants fan, but Tom can give boring answers with the best of them.)

Bottom line, the Jets need an image overhaul. Tebow isn't a bad way to do that.
