Tebow is a Jet. Not everyone is happy about it.

Where to begin when the end is already near? Half the Jets fans are celebrating, why I am not sure. The other half have already accepted the fact they will be waiting even longer for a Super Bowl win. As we all know by now Tim Tebow has signed on with Gang Green. Everyone’s first question is, what is going on with our quarterback situation? We may as well be on the same tier with the Dolphins on the idiot scale. Hell the ‘fins need a quarterback, let’s give them one of ours!
If I were Tebow I’d be shaking in my new Nike uniform. New York will eat him alive, never mind the locker room which by the way, is now more separated than ever. Jets players have already stated their opinions about Tebow. Just as I was beginning to accept the fact Tebow was a Jet (the first time around) I figured, okay, he will be a part of the offensive line up. However, after the second time around, you know, after the contract was read, I was saddened to hear he will remain in the quarterback position – as number two no less!! What happened to Stanton and McElroy? How many quarterbacks does it take to win a game? How many promises need to be broken to make the Jets work?
How can Tebow possibly help the offensive line? His completion percentage was 46% and then lowered to 40% in the offseason. He cannot throw. We will be hearing more out of Holmes and Cromartie than ever – and within reason. I’ve heard talk about using Tebow’s skills in the red zone, and if this holds true, there goes the Jet’s number one rating.
The Wildcat, which should not be relied upon, will be more predictable than ever. “Tebow steps onto the field, we know where this is going folks,” will be echoing throughout MetLife Stadium as the defense adjusts its field position. In a press conference Mike Tannenbaum made it clear that every quarterback needs a backup, and that Tebow understands his position at number two. All Tebow wants is to be a quarterback. He does not want to play another position. He’s probably just happy to have a job at this point.
If I were Mark Sanchez, inside, I’d be fuming, and I’m sure he is. Mark knows how to speak to the public, and he will keep his composure and be supportive of the decision. I’d also be questioning whether my coaches truly had faith in me. Unfortunately the amount of money helps Sanchez keep his head up. Sanchez is a traditional football player and truly loves the game. The Jets franchise has now turned into a popularity contest. Everyone is questioning Mark’s ability to accept these crazy changes. It’s only expected with the Jets and he is probably used to at this point. Mark is a big boy and I am sure the Sanchise will survive Tebowmania.
Mike T and friends should be focusing on building the team around Mark and not worry about selling seats. In Rex Ryan’s case, the best offense is a great defense. He is a mastermind at defensive plays. Let’s focus on what works! I’m curious to see what happens when this all pans out.
I vented on the Boomer and Carton show this morning, and they have already vocalized their opinion about the mindless move. Carton assumed I would be happy as a female fan that we have another “good looking quarterback.” I replied flat out that he is not attractive, and it does not matter. I am a Mark Sanchez supporter.
Last night I passionately participated in a live chat for an hour and a half. Tebow as a Jet is obviously bothersome to me. I will NOT be buying a green and white jersey with the number fifteen on it. If anything I’ll add to my collection and upgrade to the latest Nike number six. I will support the team, but not the individual player.
We have six draft picks left and hopefully we choose wisely. We need to pick up another safety, wide receiver, and right tackle. I am hoping my next article revolves about key players. It is to be hoped that April will bring smarter choices and not surprises.
