Theyre going to try to put Tebow's head on Sanchez's body and see if they can form one quality NFL QB.

You know, admins, both headlines can be true at the same time.

MugzyBrown: Theyre going to try to put Tebow's head on Sanchez's body and see if they can form one quality NFL QB.


Wouldn't it be the other way around? Or is that the joke?

Bringing in Tebow to be a backup when your starter sucks is just asking for a headache.

My 90 y.o. mother-in-law asked me what the big deal is with this "T-bone" she kept hearing people talk about. When I figured out that she meant Tebow I laughed so hard that I cried. He will forever be T-bone to me now.
 
2012-03-22 08:37:43 AM  
So I get to watch the Patriots crush the Jets and Tebow at the same time?

It's gonna be a little uncomfortable sitting through those games with such a huge erection.

my guess is

1) it gets the jets in the paper and puts people in the seats (As the giants just won another SB)...after the JETS gaurenteed one...

2) one complaint is that sanchez doesn't have any real competition...he's been "the guy" since day 1...Suddenly his job is on the line as most people expect Tebow to give 110%

3) future trade value...at some point, some team is going to need a QB...if tebow shows a little success they can trade him for something...(if not...it only cost them a couple low round picks)

4) Wildcat offense...

Man, someone just smack this guy and tell him to be a running back so we can watch decent football.
 
2012-03-22 09:39:20 AM  
I still think running the quintuple option with Sanchez at QB and Greene & Tebow as RBs is the way to go.

Sure, every play will take 8 seconds to develop, but that's neither here nor there.
 
2012-03-22 09:45:38 AM  
It would be cool if he went on to be the best at some other position - then we can talk about how he was a fairly successful quarterback at one point in his career before converting to the position he went to the HoF for.

/and everyone now comes in to act as though I'm serious or as though I think he has an actual chance to make the HoF

I still think he would make a better tight end than QB.
 
2012-03-22 09:50:55 AM  
All I cared about was that he didn't sign with the Niners. Other than that, he can go screw up any other team he wants.

So yeah, I think new york is cool, the people seem really friendly and I like people because people are nice and god is nice and jesus is nice and I like jesus and I can't wait to play for new york and be a role model and play the right way and love god and people and the jets.
 
2012-03-22 09:59:51 AM  
What I'd love to see out of Tebow (and I'm not even a Jets fan) is for the Jets to substitute him in during obvious running situations. He can still pass well enough that if you stack 11 in the box he can play-action but if it's a 4th and 1 situation, he'd be nice to have in there.

Mainly, I'm just hoping that if Tebow does well in a situational role it means that Denard Robinson has a chance to go pro some day.

I think it would be cooler if people who are actually good can get into the HoF.

It didn't take long for old attention whore Broadway Joe to chime in: I don't think they know what they're doing over there right now. ... I'm baffled. They're kind of mixed up over there. I'm talking about the folks that are making the decisions. ... Come on. This is crazy. I don't know what it's about. It appears the Jets are trying to grab headlines once again just by making noise.

Namath also said that although he is a Tebow fan, he's a bigger Jets fan, and he said that Sanchez should be angry about what is transpiring on his team.


Since old Broadway Joe quit drinking he's turned a mite sour. If someone could manage to get Tebow to model some pantyhose, I reckon his head would explode completely. I'm waiting for the Merrill Hoge interview of Joe Namath during the first broadcast ESPN does of a Jets game. The acid coming from that would be able to eat through titanium.

If he only cost a couple of cheap picks to get, why do you think he'd fetch any more than that in return?
 
2012-03-22 10:30:39 AM  
I wonder if Tebow would ever be willing to settle for his true position. A solid halfback made more dangerous by having the ability to throw the ball.

If a coach could just convince him that it's where he belongs. Call him an Eighthback or something. The Wildcat offense really would be ideal for Tebow. Hopefully (for the Jets) he can swallow his pride enough to see the possibilities.

/Yeah, nothing that hasn't been said before about Tebow.

//I've mostly stopped with the irrational dislike of Tebow as a football player. Although I'm curious to see how he handles the NYC media. They won't be as kind to his "as shucks"ing as most of the rest of the country.

As long as someone is willing to pay him to be a QB, even a in backup or in a situational role, I think he'd be foolish to try to be anything else.

This was me when I found out the news:

nerdapproved.com

Upon reading this morning that the Jags offered to pay more of the salary advance, I'm shifting the blame from the Jags owner to John Elway. It sounds more like a move John Laurenitis would make, insofar as it was made to appease the powers-that-be more than it was the actual fans, because only an absolute idiot would turn down the chance to save money.
 
2012-03-22 10:41:59 AM  
I think the whole thing is about the carrot/stick approach to Sanchize. The cash deal was the carrot, then you bring in Timbow with the clear intention that if Sanchize stumbles, they won't hesitate to put in the fan favorite. It's kind of a win-win for them unless both QBs completely suck, which I would say is possible but not probable.

They turned down better draft picks too, didn't they?

Although I don't think much of his qb skills he'll do fine with the media. Whatever else that dude is, his philosophy is simple: work hard, don't quit, and tell the truth. Sink or swim, that philosophy works everywhere. May or may not work for improving his qb play, but I think he'll handle the media just fine.

I don't really think he'll become a competent every play qb but I do think he has value around the goal line and as a confuse the defense change-up play. I crack on his completion percentage but one way or another he found the end zone several times last year as a runner. They don't give away TD's in the NFL so he has some NFL skills. I think it would be interesting to see him involved in some gimmick plays - even if the didn't work it might be a great return on the lulz.

Clearly Elway is more afraid of the Jets than the Jags. He sent the cancer to NY instead of J'ville.

maybe I should have clarified...they aren't going to re-trade tebow next week...more like next year...

It's all about the "market" and what a teams needs.

For example, it looked like Matt cassell was going to be cut in 2008. He got a chance after brady got injured, played well...and in 2009 signed a $60 million deal. If tebow shows some success...someone will come knocking.

That's a mighty big 'if' though.

I actually want to see Tebow do well on the Jets, mostly for the lulz here on fark and over on KSK. Don't care about all the religiosity, but that only matters if you aren't a good player (see Warner, Kurt or White, Reggie for proof of that). I just don't think Tebow can cut it as a QB at the NFL level, as a completion percentage of 47.3% is significantly worse than that of John Beck (58.6%), and I think we can all (except Dan Snyder) agree that John Beck should not be allowed to start an NFL game. Tebow is a full 11% WORSE!

If he shows some modest improvement, and most importantly, wins most of the games he starts somebody will be willing to sign him.

To be fair it's an effective stick. If Sanchize starts to stumble you can bet Rex will be thinking about how he pulled the Broncos out of the ashes and took them to the playoffs last year. TT pulls all the stops on the field and that shiat is contagious. RR is a gambling man and he does not care how he wins. If Sanchize loses 2 in a row and plays poorly in a third game you can bet TT will be taking snaps in the second half.
