Tim Tebow was not brought here to be 'the wildcat guy'. That was suppose to be a bonus. He came here to be a g-d Quarterback! Nonconventional sure. But that is his job. We only dress two. He is one of them.
So now that we all know just how horrible Mark Sanchez is, how is it possible that Tim Tebow can't even get a series to run the offense?
It makes no sense.
Only possible explanation is that if he were to actually do what he did in Denver - win games - Sanchez becomes unsalvageable and he stuck with a QB (tebow) that he cannot win a championship with. The only way to avoid that situation is to not let it become a possibility.
I fully believe that Rex thought Sanchez would take that big step forward this year. He never imagined that the kid would go in the opposite direction. And now, he is in a no win situation.
Even Rex's tone in these press conferences the last couple of weeks have been different than the past 3.5 years. He sounds like a guy who knows he's going down with the Sanchez titanic....but rather go out this way than with Tebow (who he doesn't believe is any better anyway).
