I don’t really know what to say here. At first all I could do was laugh. The Jets have traded a 4th and 6th round draft pick to Denver for Tim Tebow and a 7th. I guess the best I can offer right now is my quick reactions to the move:
- WTF Mike Tannenbaum! A dysfunctional locker room tore the team apart last year… and now you add this pending controversy.
- The media circus is going to be like nothing we’ve seen. Jets players can’t be happy. We know Cro isn’t from his tweets earlier.
- The moment Sanchez throws an INT, chants will rain down from Jet “fans” wanting Tebow in the game. I will instantly get into numerous fights and lose my season ticket privileges. No big deal I guess.
- How the hell is Tebow’s choir boy personality going to fit in on a team lead by Rex Ryan at the helm?
- If this was purely a football decision, then fine. The team adds a weapon who can run the wildcat and throw (a little). But the risks associated with this move just don’t add up to the reward in my opinion.
- I’m pretty sure for all the talk of a Super Bowl, all Woody Johnson cares about at this point is selling tickets and jerseys.
- With all the holes this team has, a 4th round pick could have been very useful. Tanny has had a nice history of finding talent in round 4.
- I hate the damn Wildcat offense. I don’t want to watch it every week.
I need a drink…
Update: Now I really need a drink. This whole story has taken a shift for the worse when it was reported that the trade hit a snag. Apparently, the Jets didn’t read Tebow’s contract – which states that they would owe Denver close to $5 million dollars. This is embarrassing.
