Denver Trades Tim Tebow to New York Jets

The Jets have given up a 4th round pick to acquire the services of Tim Tebow. If I were John Elway, I would have tried to get more, but he was happy to get Tebow out of town.

I think this is a bad move for both Tebow and the Jets. Tebow will be scrutinized mercilessly by the New York media. If he got the coverage he got in Denver last year, multiply that by 100 and that is what New York will be like.

I don’t think he will fit in the locker room well, either. In Rex Ryan, you have a brash and oftentimes profane coach, who is also an egomaniac, running the show. You also have a team in disarray that is searching for an identity, and Tebow is not the answer.

I am a Tebow fan, but I don’t think this is a great situation for him at all. I think this could be a potential disaster.

From the Jets perspective, I don’t see the reasoning behind this move. Mark Sanchez is fragile mentally right now, so why would you bring the 3-ring circus to town that is Tebowmania? The Jets also just gave Sanchez a three-year, $40.5 million contract extension two weeks ago.

The last thing Sanchez needs is to lose two games in a row and hear the fans chanting for Tebow. It will destroy his confidence, and that is not easy to get back. I fear the Jets will not utilize Tebow properly and thus diminish what he can do. I also fear if the fans turn on Sanchez they may screw up two quarterback careers in one fell swoop.

The one thing I could see working is if the Jets return to the ground and pound mentality they had a few years ago. Tebow could then be a great decoy to run or pitch or even pass the ball in some sets.

I am sure Jets management saw this as a good move to boost popularity and maybe restore some fans who were put off by the late season backstabbing in the locker room. They may think Tebow will add likability to the club.

It will be very interesting to see what Tebow’s role will be and how long it takes New York fans to clamor for him and to curse Sanchez. The NFL season cannot come quickly enough.
