Thread: Tebow at tight end tomorrow.

    All this stuff about using Tebow in some dual QB system or at other positions that Tebow's never played before seems like a possible smoke screen to hide the fact that the CS/FO is seriously flirting with the idea of putting Tebow in as the starter some time during the season. They're introducing Tebow-friendly play while pretending they're NOT undermining Sanchez.
    I hear this line of thinking a lot but don't believe it. In order to make this possible you have to have a CS/FO that doesn't want to win the first half of the year. I just don't buy it.

    Jets are playing to win, believe Sanchez is their #1 QB and believe Tebow can help them win as a situational QB and back-up.

    There is no conspiracy here.

    I just can't help but think we're going to see him line up at HB and give him HB Tosses. Makes the most sense.

    Lateral behind LOS = Still can throw the ball

    I agree with this. I think we're going to see a lot of this...

    Pitch with Run/Pass option.

    I can't believe they've been training Tebow as a TE and word didn't leak out. I'm afraid that even something less remarkable like him receiving hand offs would have leaked by now. Don't get me wrong I had this thought from the beginning, but we would have to find out if he was any good at catching, blocking, and receiving hand offs before he actually could do it in a game. I'm afraid the craziest thing we might see is Tebow receiving a shotgun hand off so they don't know whether he or Mark is getting the snap, and whether Mark will pass or hand it to Tebow, who could then run or pass. If Mark was going to pass he'll probably fake it to Tebow who would run into the line. There are a lot of things we could do from this formation, but don't expect Tebow to block, or catch a pass unfortunately.

    I've been thinking the Jets would use Tebow in the Gronkowski/Hernandez mold almost from the day the Jets picked Tebow up. My only concern is whether he can catch. I'm also not sure the Jets will unveil this against the Bills. They may hold off until they see the Pats, or at least some other team that is stronger than the Bills.

    Tebow is a changeup and short term starter, as in a few games. I think the Jets could have two issues here:

    A) Sanchez gets hurt and is out 2-3 weeks. Tebow wins all those games but Sanchez is still the starter. This could cause an issue if Sanchez isn't right when he comes back. If Tebow loses them it's irrelevant and Tebow time is over and Jets go on their merry way.
    B) Tebow loses all those games but Sanchez's injury is taking longer to heal. Do the Jets go to their #3 QB or not? This may be a big issue with Tebow since he is the backup.

    In the Jets perfect world Sanchez is the QB they expect and Tebow does his thing.

    At least that's what I hope.
    Maybe Woody had a point...can't get enough Tebow.

    Amen. the more we can get both those guys on the field at the same time, and be successful --> the quicker these media jackals will have to bite their tongue.

    The guy has never lined up as a TE in college and you want him to do so in the pros. The guy is an athletic qb with a big heart. He is not superman. You are not giving enough credit to nfl players that have played te all thier careers if you think a big qb can step in and do better than them.

    Every dose of Tebow is multiplied into more media time and back page real estate occupied by the NY Jets. Of course Woody would like more and more of Tebow.

    This makes the most sense by far. Asking him to be a pass catching tight end is crazy. I'd be shocked to see this even once. He could, however, reek some havoc as a HB.

    Probably not TE, but I bet he does catch some passes from the RB\HB spot. The good thing is he can probably get more after catch yards than any of our other recievers.

    I honestly think we need to just sacrifice the TE reciever and keep Smith out there and go with the 6 lineman to keep Sanchez protected. Buffelblows have a decent pass rush and that approach worked well in pre season 3.

    Parcells' great idea in Miami was to eventually make the single-wing/wildcat formation an even more significant part of the Fins' offense than it was in 2008. That's why Miami drafted spread-option QB Pat White in the 2nd round in 2009. He probably planned on White eventually replacing Pennington.

    The Jets have Parcells disciple Tannenbaum as their GM. They have a HC who seems to think the offense is only a necessary evil. They hired Tony Sparano, Parcells' pal from Miami as their new OC. They tried to hire one of the chief architects of the modern single wing, David Lee, to be their QB coach. Then they grabbed a big-name spread option QB in a trade.

    I think that they've convinced themselves that they can win by incorporating the single wing into a spread option offense.

    Tebow will not start a game, unless he learns how to throw the football. Maybe next year.
