What Are The Jets Doing?

Can someone explain to me what the Jets are doing this offseason? They try and get Peyton, fail at that but give the guy he would have replaced a big contract extension.  Then they go out and trade for Tim Tebow? Seriously, I don’t get this at all from a football standpoint.

I get it from an off the field standpoint. The Giants own the city and the Jets felt the need to make a splash, but Tebow?  Seriously?  I have nothing against the guy, but he can’t throw a football!  For his career, he has completed less than 50% of the passes he has attempted.  Sure, you could say he will grow into the QB position, but the JETS ALREADY HAVE A GUY TRYING TO DO THAT!

I reached out to one Jets’ fan about this move, but he was used words that I won’t print in a family blog. So, I ask you internet, why have the Jets summoned Tebow to live among us? Is this some plot by Woody Johnson to turn New York into a red state? I just don’t get it.

But think of this. Next fall we can look forward to Linsanity and Tebowmania at the exact same time in the exact same city.  The lights sure do shine bright on Broadway!

    first off, seriously? Linsaity lasting into next season?

    tebow will be great in a wishbone behind Sandez, quick little pitch to him and let him decide to pass or run…

    just testing you

    no, just pulled that out of somewhere because it made sense with Tebow going to the Jets

    Scenario: Rex Ryan is running his mouth and being a completely profane jerk in the locker room and with the press – while in the background we see Tebow on one knee praying away in all his purity. Oh the camera angles we could see, the huge pics of that splashed on the Post’s back page. Like Ernie Hudson proclaimed: “I love this town”. (LOL).

    This is sort of like the guy who buys his blonde girlfriend a really nice condo the day before he marries his first wife, the hot brunette. I call this strategy, “hedging your bets”. 🙂

    In other words, I have zero idea how to figure out this move by the Jets.

    Hey, at least Wilpon was able to ddoge Picard’s bullets and save his ownership stake in the Mutts. That’s a positive for NYC, By the way, Wilpon’s a good Wolverine – thanks for the endowment Fred !

      They better buy Tebow some earplugs, that’s for sure.

      And I love a good Ghostbusters reference!

    the bottom line is he (tebow) is extremely cheap insurance/gimmick that maybe gives you a lift at some point. Actually isn’t a terrible move because of his low salary.

    • nysportsfanatic  On March 22, 2012 at 9:05 am

      Sure, cheap insurance. But, what happens if Sanchez comes out and goes 14-30 with 2 picks in the opening game?

    We interrupt this normal discourse for a reference to the lofty interior pages of that august bastion of knowlege (ahem, drum roll please) – The Wall Street Journal. A very funny read, hope you both enjoy.

    And to answer the question posed – if Sanchez goes 14-30 with two pciks, you’ll first think, “so what else is new”, then you’ll have some interesting column inches in NY debating the question: “what about Tebow?”
