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.

I'm a Broncos fan (and an atheist) and while Tebow's demeanor can seem very sanctimonious, I can genuinely tell you that the guy is actually a true believer. If we're all on a plane going over the rocky mountains and the engines blow, Tim would be the only one on the plane quietly praying, content with his life and impending death. If only we could all be so lucky to be that _____ (insert: faithful, dumb, naive, brainwashed, calm).

He is a totally humble player, and will never push for playing time he doesn't deserve. The Denver fan base forced John Fox's hand to start Tebow over Orton, which I will remind people, was the RIGHT choice! Tim didn't lobby for it himself, and after every miracle victory, he credited his team mates and said he had little to do with it. I'm more than happy my favorite team landed Peyton Manning, but my opinion of Tebow was very similar to most of yours while he was at Florida, but he won me over, and might do the same to some of you Jets fans.
