    I'm in the minority of Denver fans that are not on the Tebow bus. The problem that I have with him is that he can make a decision on where to throw the ball. Just look at when they played the patriots. Manning is the best thing that has happened to denver in a long time. And I personally feel that Tebow would be a good fit for the jets because I'm sure that the fans and players will welcome him with open arms.

    On the radio here they are saying the Jets announced the trade but didn't read the contract. Duh....

    I'm torn between that and wanting to see what a circus this turns into.

    I got to see a few Jets games last year; right or wrong, I've kinda always equated Sanchez to what Rex Grossman was with the Bears. Not a horrible QB, but will show occasional flashes of something...then post a 13 QB rating :lol:

    In the end Sanchez isn't the guy for the Jets, BUT even Grossman was at the helm when the Bears went to the Superbowl :p

    In keeping with recent events, I think you'd much rather have Sanchez than Tebo. The circus around Tebo is just too big, and nobody in their right mind can possibly believe that starting him at QB is the future of their franchise. Gimmick to sell tickets or gain publicity...sure...but nothing more. The one Jets fan I know is praying the deal is now off.

    I like Tim Tebow the person.. and I think he has more potential than many think... but the Jets is a bad move.

    It will only serve to alienate Sanchez, divide the locker room and fans... and Tebow still will not get any focus to develop (if he can).

    Tebow needs to either go somewhere that he will be the defacto starter and get the off-season work he needs OR where they have a solid starter that isn't feeling pressure where Tebow can learn.

    Tebow, for example, could have stayed and learned from Peyton Manning for the next few years... no pressure to replace Manning as a starter, and Tebow might not have felt slighted sitting behind a future Hall-of-Famer.

    Going to the Jets would just be a mess for everyone involved.

    I read the trade is being held up because the Jets want the Broncos to pay for Mark Sanchez's therapy sessions.

    :lol:

    Yup, it's official now. Here's Daily News columnist Mike Lupica's take on it.

    Now the circus can really begin.

    It's clear that Tannenbaum and Rex (for sure) want the Jets to be the center of attention. It looks like they've convinced Woody Johnson to follow that course.

    Does the trade make sense? Sure, because it fits the Jets' PR strategy:

    Are people talking about the World Champion Giants? No, the Jets are in the news.

    Are people talking about the Knicks' five-game winning streak? No, the Jets are in the news.

    Are people talking about the Yankees? No, the Jets are in the news.


    The Jets' goal last year was to win the Super Bowl and be the center of attention in New York. Both goals crashed when they lost to the Giants.

    They're back on track, at least for one of two.

    As for Tebow--well, you can take the Jets' comments at face value, that he's there for the Wildcat. And they do have a new Offensive Coordinator who loves the WC, and certainly Tebow would give even more unpredictability to that formation.

    I also heard speculation on ESPN that Tebow would play in punt and placekick formations, to add more fake-kick options.

    But as one who was a season ticketholder at Shea during the Richard Todd/Matt Robinson controversy, I'm sure that the chants for Tebow will begin with the first Sanchez interception.

    A busy year for Fireman Ed.

    This one is on the GM. Jets need pass rush and a deep threat not a wildcat QB.


    If the Jets wanted to run a wildcat offense they should of kept Brad Smith plus the wildcat is no big deal teams know how to defend it.

    Speaking as a Colorado resident and Broncos fan, I can tell you that Tebow is the gift that just keeps on giving. And, it's just getting started for you guys.

    He's still in the headlines above the fold pretty much every day, and as you might have heard, we have a new QB. (The buzz is that he might have some potential...)
    ;)
