Namath says: "Hey, Tebow...I wanna kiss you!"

Just trying to avoid a dirty Sanchez I suppose.

Funny thing, that's exactly what they said about Tebow in Denver, too. He was third on the depth chart, mechanics were functional but not great, and the team expected him to hold a clipboard for a season. Then a loud group of fans started shouting for Tebow and the Broncos management stuck him in to shut them up. That didn't quite work out how they expected.

I know that the Jets plan to keep him back and let Sanchez do his thing, but that's a nightmare scenario for Sanchez, because Tebow is the loudest backup in the NFL. He doesn't say anything, though. The fans do the second that Sanchez screws up or loses a game they think he should win. Every dropped ball by a receiver, every bad snap, every red zone failure and you can be sure that the cameras are going to pan over to Tebow and the commentators are going to start speculating. So will the sports writers. So will the NYC sports radio talk shows. It's gonna be the same circus in a new town.

It's funny because it's Jets.

Because if anyone in the world is an expert on what it takes to be an overrated quarterback, it's Joe Namath, the poster boy for overrated athletes in professional sports.

I think its funny how all the old QBs dont like Tim Tebow, and doubt his ability despite evidence to the contrary simply because he doesnt play the same way they did.

John Elway couldnt get past it, and its going to cost him his job.

Michael Vick was the most overrated player of the past 20 years.

Until Tim Tebow showed up.

Hey, let's put someone with downs on the field. I doubt anyone would tackle him, so maybe he'd win games with his unorthodox style, as well.

Absolutely correct. 173 TDs, 220 INTs, and a career 65.5 rating.
How does that get you into the Hall of Fame again?

Because the Jets defense destroyed the NFL MVP and the Hall of Famer who was backing him up that day.

Playing in New York might help a bit.

The HOF is as much a popularity contest as the Pro Bowl. Namath managed to create a high media profile for himself and charm some reporters. He'd probably have pulled off that trick anywhere he played. Phil Simms played in New York, and won a Super Bowl, and he's not in, nor does anyone suggest that he should be. There's also the fact that Namath played at a time when DBs could mug receivers and not draw a flag, the interpretation of "roughing the passer" was far more generous to defensive ends, and offenses were a lot more run-oriented. The expectations of QB play were a good bit lower.

Yeah cause Peyton Fricking Manning is a huge downgrade at the position. You know the guy in the running for best qb ever. Not the runningest qb ever.

Matt Moore is a better QB than Tim Tebow.

Nobody sucks his dick for money.

Peyton manning has been on slow, steady downslide for years. He was an AVERAGE QB his last season (look up the stats, dead center of the pack) when he was HEALTHY. the best they can hope for is average. IF he is healthy.

*IF* he is not healthy, who do they have? hmmm... no one.

*IF* he cant play more than a few games, and IF Sanchez sanchezes out giving tebow an opportunity (which is all the young man will need), the Jets make the playoffs while the broncos fall.

Hell, I dont think the broncos can match their record from last season WITH Manning healthy. Sure there were a lot of miracles last year but... Miracles are some peoples specialty.

I mean, seriously, would we put Joe Namath on the field? He was a better QB than Tebow too, but, like Manning, he WAS a better QB than Tebow.

How about Joe Montana? Terry Bradshaw? How about Sid Luckman?

I like Peyton Manning, and he too worked miracles. 4 games into the season, this may seem like a good idea. Come December, people will be wondering.

As long as Rex Ryan is coach, the Jets are still farked. You think his admission last year of not knowing the pulse of the team is a fluke? He's just not a good coach, just like his father.

1st in completions, 2nd in completion %, 2nd in touchdowns, 2nd in yards. For a team that averaged 3.8 yards/rush. Yeah, I think the Broncos will take that over Tim "I'm really good at going 3-and-out" Tebow.

Yeah, he was not a good head Coach, but Buddy Ryan was one hell of a d-coordinator.

Irnoically two years out of fottball and in the slammer then turned Michael Vick into what everyone thought he should have been in the first place. He actually is a great quarterback now instead of a mediocre quaterback with explosive footspeed. Watching every tream that played the Eagles adopted the Hack-a-Shaq strategy to the NFL last year was amusing to say the least.

/Skins fan, but I respect talent when I see it.

No kidding, I was happy to see him go too.

Not really. He had one good year, turned it into a huge contract, and immediately reverted back to the same guy he's been all along.

Jets fan here.

First admission: AFC Championship game against PIT. Jets driving. Goal line stand. Schotty calls three passing plays when the Jets have a MASSIVE line. TD attempt fails.

If Tebow was in that QB role... that ball is somehow getting into the endzone. Either finding a way OR running it in himself and getting hit.

I'm not attached to Sanchez, and I'm sick of the talking heads going back and forth about this. If Sanchez can produce and Tebow still gets reps as a Wildcat and/or goal line specialist, I'm down.

Is he a Brad Smith type? Maybe.

Elway is in line to buy the team from Bowlen in the next 5-10 years. The only way Elway gets fired is if he is found with a live boy or dead girl in the bedroom.

Seriously? Has this been reported? I was of the impression that Bowlen was going to leave the team to his kids and that Elway might buy in as a part-owner.

Just sports talk, sports columnist fodder, but it's pretty obvious Elway has been prepping himself for this since he retired as a player. But either Elway as majority owner or part-owner, take your pick, it really doesn't change things. Elway is not going to get fired because he sent Timmy Tebow packing. Bowlen was probably just as glad to get rid if yet another of McD's mistakes as Elway and Fox were. And if Bowlen was on board (and you know he was the minute he signed off on Mannings first check) then just who the hell is going to fire Elway?
