I was drinking my morning coffee when the headline flashed across the bottom of the screen. That sound you heard was me choking and sputtering.
My Jets have given up two perfectly good draft picks for Tim Tebow, the worst quarterback in the National Football League.
What the hell are they thinking over there at Gang Green central?
Mark Sanchez is not, as yet, Eli Manning, but he is a talented quarterback with a good arm and he completes more than fifty per cent of his passes, none of which can be said for Tebow. The last thing he needs is a stadium full of Timomaniacs screaming for Tebow every time a pass falls incomplete. The divisions in the Jets locker room last season were well documented. THis is just going to make those problems a thousand times worse.
Nor do I think that Tebow's conspicuous piety will play well in the Big Apple. This is the city that once embraced Broadway Joe. Tebow would fit better in... well, if Branson, Missouri had an NFL team, that would be a perfect fit.
