Get Ready to Get Tebowed (Again)

As Tim Tebow settles down into the New York metro area, everyone is starting to put in their two cents about the situation. The biggest story of the 2011 NFL season has just entered the biggest media market in the country. With a ton of buzz now in the dog days of the offseason, I can only imagine what we will get when the regular season kicks off this fall. Until then, the media will be searching for any storyline they can find.

From my earlier article, I would have much rather seen Tebow go back home to Jacksonville and revive a franchise in desperate need, but it turns out the coaching staff are much more interested in developing Blaine Gabbert. According to sources, Tebow talked to both organizations before deciding that he would rather be traded to the Jets, which tells us that Rex Ryan is a fan of Tim Tebow. Having a coach that wants you has to feel good after Tebow just spent a year in a Denver system that was never set up for him, nor did ownership really want to keep Tebow as their future quarterback.

It has been well documented that John Elway always had his reservations in fully supporting the idea of Tim being the future of the Denver Broncos. Elway was waiting for an opportunity to push Tebow out of town after he realized that he wasn’t going to be willing to play a different position. It didn’t help that Orton was awful in the first 5 games of the 2011 season and basically gave the Broncos organization no choice but to let Tebow start. In the end, Denver got “Tebowed,” which I define as the act of doubting his abilities only to be proven incorrect time after time.

Their season ended with a loss to the Patriots in the playoffs, and many people were quick to abandon the Tebow bandwagon. Now once again we are seeing a mass exodus to the Tebow hate wagon -- on the top of this list are a couple of high-profile quarterbacks in Joe Montana and Joe Namath.  Joe Namath has since tamed down his stance in support of his beloved Jets, but his initial reaction showed disappointment and even some anger toward ownership and management for trading for Tim Tebow. He questioned the trust that Sanchez and the new offensive coaching staff would have after they went out and traded for another quarterback.
"I do not agree with this situation. I can't agree with it. I just think it's a publicity stunt. I really think it's wrong. I can't go for it." – Joe Namath
Joe Montana followed up by going right at the controversy and declared Mark Sanchez the better quarterback.  Montana encouraged Mark that he really shouldn’t be concerned about this trade and how it may or may not affect his starting role.
"Mark is a better player right now and that's it. As long as Mark believes in himself and plays, it's not an issue. It's more of an issue for those of you who write, or blog or tweet and all the other methods of delivering content." – Joe Montana
What I don’t understand is why everyone is so high on Mark Sanchez.  He finished the regular season with the same 8-8 record as the Broncos while having a more complete team with the Jets. Also four of the Bronco losses did not include Tim Tebow playing a single minute while Sanchez is responsible of all eight losses for the Jets. And let's not forget that Tim defeated Mark’s Jets in Denver on a miracle last-minute drive.

We continue to set ourselves up to be “Tebowed” over and over, and this time won’t be different. The Jets locker room is a mess; we have already seen players talk to the media bashing Sanchez and his inability to lead this team. People have questioned his work ethic and focus to the game of football. This is all somewhat reminiscent in New York City with Broadway Joe (Namath) and his womanizing and drinking ways, but he delivered a Super Bowl to the Meadowlands. 

Denver has not won much recently before Tim Tebow, and the Florida Gators have fallen off as an elite program since he left for the NFL. This man’s track record speaks for itself; Tim deserves to start at quarterback for the New York Jets. This is my warning to Mark Sanchez -- stop hanging out with high school girls, get your head in the playbook, and work your butt off at the gym because Tim Tebow is here and ready to take your job.
