Perhaps its just me but I fail to understand how using Tebow as a tight end benefits the Jets. Sure strolling out tebow and sanchez might cause some initial confusion for the defense but the second he lines up a tight end he will be defended just as any other tight end would (only its not his natural position and he isn't very good at it).
If anything I predict we see another attempted fourth and short conversion out of a punt formation. However, it is somewhat regrettable the Jets have already shown their hand in this and im sure teams are on the look out for it.
