Tim Tebow To The New York Jets A Disappointing Development

It doesn’t seem fair.

Tim Tebow belongs as a ‘starting’ quarterback. He deserves a shot. He’s earned the opportunity with a Heisman, national college championships, and a pro playoff win.

Now that Tebow is a backup for the Jets, it feels like the country is getting cheated.


Tebow On The Jets Not A Positive For Anyone

Football fans don’t get the full Tebow effect because he’ll now be a second-stringer for the New York Jets, the back-up to Mark Sanchez and his big, new contract.

It’s just dumb, bad (Andrew) Luck. If it weren’t for this recent domino effect from the Colts through the Broncos to the Jets, maybe Tebow could have stayed a ‘starter’ like Elway had promised he would be going into next season.

But, why the Jets? Couldn’t Tebow have gone to a team looking for a change, a team willing to take Tebow and all his faults? A team not afraid of an air of mystery for what happens next?

The country does not want to go through another Tebow quarterback controversy. That’s old and stale. Been there, done that.

The country wants the coach, general manager, and owner to leave him alone so he can lead his team by improving with each gritty performance.

But it looks like a guaranteed quarterback controversy in New York because Sanchez doesn’t always have the talent each week to convince fans and the media that he can get his team to a Super Bowl.

The media and the circumstances will put Tebow in an unenviable situation in which he has to fight again to get the starting job. He deserves better.

Young, athletic Tebow, a spiritual leader and role model, is not meant to roam the sidelines. He is worthy of playing. He brings something different to the game. His energy is incomparable.

This whole ordeal will tire him and everyone else out. This was not how the next chapter was supposed to go in the Tim Tebow story.

Something’s out of place and not right about this trade. Shame on John Elway and Rex Ryan for messing with the most compelling storyline in years for football fans.

  1. Wow, clearly an overreaction to the trade, within 3 years Tebow will be essentially meaningless if he continues to focus on playing QB.  This may be the best thing that ever happens to him, he can now focus on developing in a FB, TE or H-back.  Congrats to John Elway to signing an upgrade a quarterback and getting the team focused.  Plus didn’t Tebow have the choice of going to Jacksonville and instead chose NYC?
