Jets & Tebow

So, if there is another thread on this one - sorry, didn't see it.

I think everyone expected all this to happen at some point, I'm surprised it's taken so long to be honest. Here's the thing - why trade for Tebow if you're not going to use him more than a few gimmick plays a game?

Tebow is a solid guy - great teammate and he will always give you 100%. Can you say that about Sanchez? Sure, some guys on the team don't like him - you really think they all believe in Sanchez? He just throws a bit prettier and his stats are a bit better... they're still losing.

The Jets are 3-6 ... Sanchez is barely above 50% completion with about 1900 yards, 10 TDs and 9 INTs.

Last year, Tebow passed for about 1700 yds - 12 TDs / 6 INTs - passed under 50%, but ran for another 660 yds and 6 TDs. Denver was 7-4 with him... they won a playoff game. No, it wasn't "all due to Tebow", but the kid makes things happen. Sanchez does not.

If you compare Sanchez's 9 games this year to Tebow's 11 games last year ... what's really different? As a QB - both stat lines look like puke, but Tebow adds another dimension and production on the ground and they won.

Everyone has known that Sanchez is no good --- sure, he has a place in the NFL, but it's as a backup. The Jets have injury issues and nothing to work with on offense. Sanchez was mediocre with good talent around him, now they stink.

Why not put Tebow in more ... why not let him start a game? The Jets aren't going anywhere... put him in and try to fix your QB spot in the offseason, neither is a long-term fix.

Split the QB duty, get creative... doing the same ol' thing isn't working.

Is Tebow a great passing QB? No, but he can be effective - we all saw that last year. Can lightning strike twice with him? I doubt it, but who knows - why not try. Losing sucks, so if they keep losing - what is really lost by making the switch? Sanchez isn't going to turn things around - their team is miserable.

I say... go with Tebow, why not? See if he can do something... you really just never know.

Ref: Chiefs ?

To be fair here, not every QB is destine to be " GREAT ". Some are just considered serviceable until a quality replacement can be made.

You know you want to see it though. I want to see Tebow start just for the spectacle of it.

After last year, I bet there are a lot of football fans want to see it. But the Jets do not have a roster like the Donks had, I do not see Tebow getting the same results.

Regardless if Tebow isn't any better, I think you've gotta make the move just for accountability reasons and to get a spark. As a head coach if you don't bench someone for poor play you are losing credibility in the locker room and in the front office. Besides, everyone knows Johnson didn't bring him in just to be "there." Even though they did redo Sanchez's contract.

What the **** ever. I sincerely doubt any Chiefs fans makes a ****ing Tebow thread right now. Of course it would be either a Jets or Broncos fan.

Relax, its a break from the rest of the Pioli, Crennel, and Cassel BS. That shit is discussed to death.

Open your mind to other levels of suck.

And just like Cassel deserves to be benched, so does Sanchez.

You're right, it crushed Denver's chances of advancing at the QB position.

Who says he has to be great, how many teams have that now? Sanchez sucks... They need a spark, take the chance...

Tebow is a great leader, Sanchez is not... They may not like his play, but I would bet they respect him.

They are 1 game out of that 7th seed with 7 games left. Why not?

I actually agree with you to a point, I said in one of the threads the other day... Sanchez actually isn't playing much better than Tebow probably would.

Really it's sad because Sanchez is an infinitely more talented QB. But the guy literally struggles to complete 50% of his passes every week. That's horrible.
