    Jets using Mark Brunell to mimic Tebow in practice

    The New York Jets have been using 41-year-old Mark Brunell, one of the game's most mobile quarterbacks in his prime, on the scout team to mimic Tim Tebow according to the Associated Press.

    "I'm left-handed and he is left-handed, and that's about it right there," Brunell joked when asked how similar he is to Tebow


    --------------------------------------------

    So what are they doing? having him stand there and not throw?

    Brunell was a pretty mobile quarterback in his day - unfortunately, I think they played with leather helmets back then.

    Not true at all, if anyone still owns a projector and a movie screen I can show you the the black and white tapes from his college days.

    @ 1:52 is what we should do to Tebow when he tries to pray after a play....

    The only reason he was so mobile was because Knute Rockne had yet to invent the forward pass.

    You would think they would use a running back. A running back is probably a better match.

    Is Brunell praising the Lord and enjoying pre marital celibacy?

    Brunell should be used for nothing. Ever wonder why were 5-4.

    If Brunell was starting this year the Jets would be at least 7 and 2
    Sanchez is on the verge of being sat on by the fat lady when she sings, the kid is a kid.

    Well I am glad to hear they are using him for something besides babysitting Nacho and holding a mighty fine looking clipboard on the sidelines during the games. I also imagine the piece of paper that is attached to Brunell's clipboard reads:

    Rex - light with half & half, 2 splenda
    Schotty - dark, no sugar
    Mike P. - light & sweet
    Mike W. - black, no sugar

    :D

    Seriously though, PLEASE Rex & Cappy, get me a back up QB that can step in the second Sanchez freezes up and win out the game. Thank you.
