    I grew up outside of New York City, and have been a Giants fan my whole life. I don’t dislike the Jets, I just don’t care about them. But the New York sports media is a freakin’ machine. It’s not that the Jets love to have people talk about them; it’s that the hundreds of New York media outlets need to feet their hungry listeners.

    If Tebow has even one misstep, they’re going to chew him up and spit him out like three-day old gum. The charming quiet studious religious boy that the polite Denver media handles with kid-gloves will be chewed up by New York.

    Frankly, I’m kind of looking forward to all this. I don’t really dislike Tim Tebow, but I do like schadenfreude.

    Jim: You’ve left me with the image of where a mob of New Yorkers finds three-day-old gum to chew up and spit out.

    I haven’t kept up with much of the NFL off-season happenings but when Tim Tebow was traded to the Jets, my first thoughts would be that they would keep Mark Sanchez at QB and would use TT as an option for the wildcat formation. This became an even more likely scenario when the Jets hired former Miami Dolphins head coach, Tony Sporano, as the Jets offensive coordinator. Tony was primarily responsible for bringing the wildcat offense to Miami using Ronnie Brown as the primary controller. I remember a few teams (including the Patriots) having a tough time defending against this offense when it was first introduced. Now substitute TT for Ronnie Brown and you have a more explosive running game in NY.

    That does limit the number of touches that TT would get, so I’m not sure if the Jets will try to get him the ball more some other way. Either way, Sanchez has to feel the pressure of losing his starting QB position and thus will be motivated to be better in camp.
