Let’s talk about the Jets. I not only think that the Jets have an inside track for the AFC east, I think they have a good chance to sweep the
Patriots. As the Cardinals showed that large corners can not only push the Patriot recievers around, they can stop their recievers outright; and
a strong inside rush can alleviate any real threat from Brady’s arm. Essentially, the Arizona Cardinals showed the rest of the NFL the plan on
how to defeat the Patriots. The Patriots are going to have real trouble with a team like the Jets. There are no other legitimate threats in the
AFC east(both the Dolphins and the Bills are a couple of years away), and the Jets have the large corners and inside pass rush that can and will
disrupt Brady’s passing attack. Along with the rushing of the heavy hitting Greene, the short passing game offense should be enough to win this
divisional series and the divisional crown.
Honestly it is not enough, as long as they don’t fully endorse their secret weapon.
Tebow to the left, Tebow to the right, and Tebow with the quarterback sneak up the middle. He needs more snaps, like way more. They waste him
when he hands off, either he needs to throw (deep) or tuck it and run. Tebow needs to be in the game. Sanchez holds the ball too long and the
receivers are ho-hum, Greene is one dimensional and doesn’t avoid any tackles. The Jets need Tebow to move the chains.
Miami next, that should be a win. In general, I expect the Jets to go 3-3 in their next 6 games and be 4-4. At 4-4, the Jets would still be
right in the mix for the division and wild-card entering the second half. That is when Tebow hopefully takes over to lead the Jets to the
Tebow isn’t the guy. Really. You said you want to see him throw the ball deep and there is only one problem with that idea: he can’t. Sanchez is
The Jets ran into a buzzsaw in Pittsburgh on Sunday and they almost won. If Greene hadn’t gotten his bell rung the Jets were on the verge of
taking over that game… in Pittsburgh, against a team that lost an embarassing game the previous week in Denver and was trying to keep up with
the Ravens in their division. The Jets smaller runningback couldn’t get past Pittsburgh’s huge defensive line like Greene had been doing, and
that is why their offense stalled. Sanchez was holding the ball too long, and their recievers were having a tough time getting open; but you
should give credit to a Pittsburgh Steelers defense that was fired up and flying around the field. I want you to remember how the Pittsburgh
coach looked relieved when they got that touchdown pass that barely stayed in the endzone. The Jets had the Steelers on the ropes, but with
Greene on the sidelines they couldn’t deliver the knockout blow.
Tim Tebow is actually a very good deep ball thrower, better than the likes of Matt Ryan, Cam Newton, Matt Schaub, Joe Flacco, Jay Cutler, Alex
Smith and Mark Sanchez.
If you think that the Jets should replace Mark Sanchez with Tim Tebow you are crazy. Statistics don’t show his overlong delivery, his bad
footwork or the inflated numbers due to yards after the catch. He can’t throw long, and if you insist on this fact you don’t understand what
you’re talking about.
His statistics do show he throws a good deep ball. And if you are looking for YAC (yards after the catch) why don’t you ask the Steelers about
that since I think they are still chasing the guy who burnt them in overtime for a touchdown in the playoffs last year for 80 yards.
His running threat pulls safeties up, causing deep receivers to be covered one on one.
Okay, some stats to prove I’m right.
Although the Broncos dropped back to pass only 45 percent of the time with Tebow at quarterback last season, when he did so, it was usually
deep. No quarterback averaged more air yards per pass attempt (12.3) than Tebow last season.
Tebow last season also was more efficient than Sanchez when throwing the ball deep. On passes over 20 yards in the air, both completed just over
25 percent of their throws, but Tebow threw five fewer interceptions in 11 more attempts and had a higher average yards per attempt.
C’mon, you can’t be serious. Last year he won a game when he completed only two passes. TWO. And you’re trying to tell me that he can throw the
ball better than a quarterback that took you to the AFC championship game twice? Really? You need to start backing the real quarterback on your
team and stop being a backseat fan. Your team has a legitimate chance this year and you want to blow it on a guy who can’t throw the ball in a
quarterbacks who can run and throw…
I’ll take my chances with a guy who can run and throw.
I would too. There’s only one problem; Tebow can’t throw.
