Once again, twitter is abuzz about our favorite former little pony, Tim Tebow – he is now a NY Jet. One tweeter said that: “Tebow is a great addition to the NY Jets franchise”
In the words of OchoCinco “child please”.
This person was clearly not a Jets fan – because even New Yorkers are up in arms over this deal. The Jets need stability, players focused on the game, and a real quarterback; not the theatrics.
The Jets nursery locker room is already mess with QB Mark Sanchez being the biggest baby of the bunch. Remember Sanchez’s hissy fit when Ryan, in an effort to shake up his young QB, gave Mark Brunell a couple of meaningless first-team snaps in practice last season? Then we have all of the post season banter from unidentified Jets team members, saying how they can’t stand Sanchez. Add in Tebow to this already fractured and fragile team and nothing positive seems to stem from it.
Interestingly enough, Rex Ryan has been eerily quiet – definitely a sign of danger ahead. His twin brother on the other hand, Rob Ryan, earlier in the year made it clear about how he feels about Tebow “It made me, uh, throw up,” Ryan said, pausing mid-sentence to make a vomiting motion. “That stuff comes into play. You get that crap. I don’t like it because it’s college football.”
Tebows college football style has won him games – ironically against the Jets last year. But as many of us saw, he won the game with his legs, not his arms.
So how do Sanchez and Tebow size up? Last year, Sanchez completed only 56.7% of his passes last season, but compared to Tebow (46.5%), he seems as accurate as Steve Young.
With numbers like that, the distractions of a fractured team and no clear plan of what the NY Jets are looking to accomplish –
I can safely say that Rex Ryan won’t be making any Superbowl promises this year.
