Tim Tebow signing with New York Jets no big deal

Well, two days ago I found out that last year’s Denver Broncos quarterback sensation, Tim Tebow, was traded to the New York Jets. The team I do not like at all seems to be imploding this off-season and I could not be happier. It seems as though the Jets have finally admitted that they have no strong vote of confidence in their starting quarterback, Mark Sanchez.
There was a headline on the back of the New York Times yesterday that read, “Tebow joins no-ring circus; Jets are clowns for picking him up.” As a dedicated Patriots fan, I could not have been happier to see that even New York has lost faith in their Jets.
I feel like I should clarify a few things for those who aren’t football fans. The Jets’ season fell apart last year after their loudmouth head coach Rex Ryan promised a Superbowl winning season before it started. That was a huge letdown and it showed that Ryan might not know what he is talking about, ever.
I do not like Rex Ryan at all and that is mostly because he called the New England Patriots’ head coach Bill Belichick the moment he arrived in New York, which, in my opinion, is just rude. Even if Ryan doesn’t like Belichick, or even if he wants to keep the rivalry between the two divisional opponents alive, he should’ve respected Belichick for what he has done as head coach for the Patriots.
With the ever-struggling Sanchez under center, Tebow fans will likely start screaming for him to be placed as the starter, just like they did when Tebow was backing up Kyle Orton in Denver. Anyone who thinks otherwise is a fool.
The way I see it, the Jets are going to have more distractions and less answers for their fans as the season begins and progresses, so I am not really worried that Tebow is going to take over the Jets and somehow retake the AFC East Division from the Patriots. There is just no way that can happen.
The Jets might find a suitable way to plug Tebow into their offense, whether it is through the wildcat offense or some other crazy scheme, but by the end of the year, I am strongly sensing that Rex Ryan will be out of a job, and a rebuilding phase will begin in New York.
Even if Sanchez performs well and Tebow drama never ends up happening, this move does not really hurt the Patriots in any way. They have proven that they can shut down both a Sanchez and Tebow-lead offense, even with a supposedly lack luster defense. So in the end, I couldn’t really be any happier with Tebow’s decision to go to the Jets because it’ll only cause problems before it yields any solutions.
