I wonder if all the Tebowners can get a trade in for their Jets Tebow jerseys now that they will be Jags fans.
I'm not a religious nut or a Tebow follower. But whatever you think about him, he was clearly used by the Jets... and not used for football reasons... but for business reasons.
He's Sanchez's backup, there's no reason why McElroy should be starting tomorrow and a 7-6 win against Arizona at home isn't a very convincing reason to get the start. For all the people saying that Tebow sucks, yeah maybe he does sometimes, but he's a good leader and proved that he can win games.
I think the decision to start McElroy tomorrow shows us that Sanchez will be back next year. The Jets know what they are doing...
If Tebow was to start and win the next 2 games, that would be the worst thing to happen to them since they will not be getting rid of Sanchez. This organization doesn't care about winning anymore, just making money. It sucks because I've been a lifelong Jets fan, but I've never been so disgusted to be a Jets fan as I am now.
The Jets brought him in under false pretenses about having a shot at the QB job. By not starting him tomorrow, it just shows what kind of deceiving people are running this organization and it's hard to be a fan of a team like this.
Also, for all the Tebow haters who thinks he sucks... wouldn't you want him to start tomorrow in that meaningless game to back up your argument that he sucks??
The Jets won't give him the chance, they know what they're doing business wise... as far as football wise.... enjoy another 40+ years of mediocrity especially since the already rich owner Woody Johnson's first priority with franchise is making as much money as he can instead of getting the fans a long awaited super bowl.
Tim Tebow is a joke. Can't wait to see him embarass himself in Jax and run for Congress in 4 years.
And picks are too valuable to be used on a position with such a short shelf life.
And for anyone seriously wanting Gabbert, holy hell you people don't watch football
This site is supposed to be for Jets fans. I rooted hard for this team during the dark days of Dick Kotite and Frank Reich I don't need some silly religious fanatic tebow lover lecturing me why it's Rex Ryans' fault his boy stinks.
I don't know how long he's been saying it but I've been saying it for two years now. Funny when Tebow did it it's a "gimmick", when the other guys are doing it it's amazing. I guess part of it is true since neither Denver nor the Jets could actually get behind it and implement it completely.I've gone sore-throated talking about the introduction of option football to the NFL game the last couple years, from Tim Tebow to Cam Newton to Robert Griffin III, Colin Kaepernick and Russell Wilson.
Breer: The hottest name in coaching
Robert Griffin III's smashing success in the Redskins' offense certainly bodes well for Kyle Shanahan, Albert Breer writes. More ...
Spent countless hours writing about it, too, most recently two days ago.
But now is as good a time as any to go right back to the well. In the broader sense, there's no greater evidence that the trend is producing than this: If the playoffs started this weekend, half the NFC's playoff field would feature the option as a prominent offensive tactic. Two of those teams, the San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks, face off in Sunday's spotlight game, a bloodsport-style showdown with big implications.
At the very least, all this is a piece of evolution in a league that told you for decades that the option would never work at the game's highest level. It's easy to conclude now that those naysayers were either wrong or simply crotchety about change.
Fact is what we have is a bunch of dinosaurs in the NFL like McCoy, Fox, like Rex, like Sparano and a whole bunch of other NFL coaches and offensive coordinators who stopped innovating offensively in the NFL for the past 2 decades, just copying the same WCO, Power I and Ace formations from one another and have done everything in their power to convince everyone college offenses wouldn't work at the NFL level. Why? Self preservation. To keep their jobs and keep college coaches who have first hands experience with this from moving up. Politics.
If only guys like Vick, Young and Tebow got to come out of college and step right into one, things may have gone different for them too instead of everyone trying to break them down and re-engineer what they do.
If Jacksonville want Tebow, then what they need is to get a college coach who knows how to run this thing and go behind it completely, otherwise they shouldn't even bother with him. It will be the same issue that happened here.

You asked why "Sparano's Wildcat" worked in Miami and not here. It was correctly pointed out to you that it wasn't actually Sparano's wildcat, but rather, David Lee's.
As you were too ignorant to understand what was being said to you, I tried to dumb it down and make it simple and easy for you to understand. Sadly, I didn't lower the bar far enough and it still apparently went over your head.
you know what i hope he does go somewhere he actually will get a chance ny and esp thier idiot fans sg3 and can't wait among others don't deserve a guy like that.
I wish ny would have given him at least a chance to screw it up as much as they gave suckchez and for those saying sanchez is abetter qb guess we will see who is a starting qb next year and who is on the bench.
as long as suckchez is also gone i can live with tebow being gone and hopefully go where he is treated with some respect.
