I don't know why the Jets signed Tebow, if they're not going to give him a chance, especially after Sanchez has been stinking it up so bad. Sanchez has a terrible completion percentage so it's not like you're going to lose all that much by going to Tebow. You've been losing with Sanchez. What do you got to lose by giving Timmy a shot?
If I were the Jets, since you're not going to play him, might as well trade him to the Jacksonville Jaguars. Tebow can't be any worse than Gabbert. That franchise needs a lift and Tebow will do better in a place where he's wanted, valued, and appreciated. Plus the Jets get some low-end draft pick.
P.S. I picked up Taiwan Jones in both my leagues last week. Lots of minutes left in a blow-out. Carson sitting out. Taiwan Jones not used. Why are you paying a salary if you're not going to give a player a legitimate, decent chance to show what he can do?
P.P.S. Gotta give John Fox a little credit for giving in to Bronco fans clamoring for Tebow Time.
1. They signed him for PR and PSL's and ticket sales
2. He's due $2.5+M next season. I doubt anybody is going to take that on
"We have to know when he goes into the game, he's going to know what to do and he's going to protect the football and he's got to be able to stay healthy ... as he improves those things, he'll get more playing time," Allen said.
PPS - didn't Orton get hurt? Fox had no choice but to start Tebow.
