I can’t believe I am actually going to write this, but it is time for the Jets to turn to Tebow. I’m surprised they didn’t throw in the boy wonder during garbage time of the 34-0 mollywhop at the hands of the 49ers. I mean, if Tebow can’t get in at quarterback in that game, why did the Jets get him? This proves that Tebow is just a token, a sideshow piece in the eyes of the Jets. They don’t view him as a QB of the future, nor should they. But, when the Texans are crushing the Jets on Monday, and the Meadowlands is ringing with a chorus of boos and chants for savior that is not on the roster, it will become Tebow time. And finally, we will put to bed the notion that Timothy Richard Tebow is a NFL quarterback when the jets are 4-7 in week 12.
How did the Jets fall so low? They were just in the AFC Championship game and were a couple of plays from upending the Steelers in the 2010 season. Well let’s see; they have had bad offseasons, losing Thomas Jones, Braylon Edwards, Kris Jenkins, and Jerricho Cotchery in these last 2 years. Drafts have been bad; Shonn Greene has gone south (shout out to South Jersey though), Kyle Wilson is a nobody, and Muhammed Wilkerson is not a game-changer. Rex Ryan over-evaluates his own guys; Bart Scott is old and slow. They have to blitz on every play to get a pass rush. On offense, Sanchez looks lost. It doesn’t help that there are no weapons at all on the squad, especially with Santonio Holmes hurt. Sanchez may be regressing. I saw him holding the ball out on a 49ers pass rush like he was Deion Sanders. The ball was promptly knocked out of his hands. Right now Sanchez just sucks. But this is what I would say to Sanchez if he were right in front of me.
So you might as well get Tebow in the game. What’s the worse that could happen? More Tebow segments on Sportscenter? Skip Bayless writing love notes to his favorite man in the world? Actually, Sanchez is just fine for the Jets. Just fix everything around him, before it’s too late for his career. Song of the week and games of the weekend after the bump. I wish this was the week to write about college football because the games are AWESOME this week.
