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.

Ugh more Tebow
My biggest fear is that now Tebow is in such a huge market, we'll have to hear that much more about him from Disney, err i mean the Eastcoast Sports Programming Netwrok, err, I mean ESPN.

Don't worry...
The Jets also recently signed Drew Stanton away from my Lions, so the Jets actually have the holy trinity of Worst Quarterbacks. (I always wonder is Sanchez would be a better fit with a non-NY team though)

Bama made Tim Tebow cry!

Sorry, that's all I've got.

I know how you feel. I don't want him in my state or anywhere near my Gang Green.Why Jets?! Why?!

Sparano now has a Wildcat quarterback to play with, and they do want more power running...who says he has to be a Quarterback all the time? This will probably exacerbate the divisions in the locker room.

Be well.

Don't fret
Jets got a good player for (practically) nothing. It's a good gamble.
If it works: it lights a fire under Sanchez's behind or Tebow takes over and becomes a good QB. If it doesn't, they are no worse off than they are now.

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.

Ouch, my condolences!

Though as a KC Chiefs fan, I'm just happy he's outta my division so I won't have to hear about him as much, lol. (Though it's going to be a lot harder for me to hate Denver now that they have Peyton, because <3).

At least with Tebow you also get God on your side for the low, low price of free!

Yeah, can't he do faith healing? Maybe he'd be good on the sidelines for injured players.

I must say that I just don't get it. The general knock on Sanchez is his accuracy and consistency, so he is to be backed up (I assume) by Tim Tebow? Throw in the chemistry issues and this could get very ugly.

The salary cap is the only positive I can see.

Not a good fit... AT ALL.
I'm not Tebow fan, and I've made it pretty well known to my circle of friends about how overrated I feel that he's been. Bringing him to the Jets takes Sanchez, who's only a YEAR OLDER and has far more experience, and places him in difficult career territory. Sanchez faces the hated Patriots twice per year, Tebow buckled under pressure.

I'm no Sanchez fan, either, but at least he has the poise of an NFL QB. Tebow has stars in his eyes.

The plan

Improved lockerroom
Maybe they got Tebow in to improve the team spirit. LT claimed that the lockerroom was in disarray last year for the jets.

This is just bizarre. I can't understand why they would do this. It reads like a publicity stunt to me.
