In a week full of change for many NFL quarterbacks, perhaps the most interesting one is today’s news that Denver has traded Tim Tebow to the New York Jets. So much for Tebow’s desired return to the Sunshine State.
Besides a flurry of attention, what else did the Jets get for Tebow? They also got a seventh-round pick while the Broncos gave up a fourth-round and sixth-round draft picks.
So how will Tebowmania fare in the Big Apple? Here’s a few thoughts.
Tebow isn’t going to have a chance to be the starting quarterback but he may have the opportunity in the wildcat formation under new offensive coordinator Tony Sparano’s scheme. This is something that Sanchez will need to learn.
The Jets have committed to Sanchez as their guy with the recent ridiculous $40 million, three-year contract extension. But should Sanchez feel threatened? Possibly.
At the end of the day, neither quarterback is that talented but Sanchez is probably the lesser or two evils.
Tebow may be the push that Sanchez needs. Last week, the Jets signed former Detroit Lions back up Drew Stanton as their No. 2 guy. I don’t think he exuded a much-needed push to Sanchez but Tebow may be that guy. Between all the media attention he’ll receive and the possible bonds he could forge with his new teammates–possibly causing two camps for the quarterbacks–could negatively affect Sanchez.
His psyche is probably fragile enough after last season’s disruptive locker room and the ensuing negative publicity about it.
Tebow likes to be the underdog. He thrives under pressure and when he’s in a game and the team is down, Tebow can pull some fourth quarter magic. He is very competitive and can rally a team around him.
Can you say that about Sanchez? Not so much.
Many players and pundits took to Twittersphere upon hearing the news. Some was good and some was not.
And perhaps one that says it all:
Chris Kluwe @ChrisWarcraft: Oooh, good call on those of you responding with “Timsanity”. I like that one.
