Some Reasons Why The Jets Traded For Tim Tebow

On March 21, 2012, The Jets traded for Tim Tebow.

On December 27, 2012, the Jets finalized the last days of Tebow in New York by declining once again to start him – even after the injury to current starter, Greg McElroy – in favor of embattled former starter, Mark Sanchez.

There will be a lot of articles talking about what a failure this was for the Jets, but let’s look at the Jets mindset on that day in March.

Here, in order, are some of the reasons the Jets traded for Tim Tebow.

Mike D’Antoni vs. the Knicks Part Deux: The Steve Nash Edition

nashdantoni

The first time around, Knicks fans got their satisfaction.  The coach who they pleaded to find a little defense until he decided New York was not in his future plans, returned to the Garden and lost with his new team, the Los Angeles Lakers, 116-107.

And boy was that fun.  Despite MVP candidate, Carmelo Anthony getting injured in the final minutes of the game, the Knicks were able to run the wounded Lakers off the floor.

This left the Lakers at 9-14, a shell of the normal Lakers teams.  Having dispatched embattled coach, Mike Brown, after only 5 games, LA was still trying to get used to D’Antoni’s “SSOL” offense.

Tim Tebow: Not a Savior, Nor a Sanchize Killer, Just Another Bad Jets Decision

He was “excited”.  He was really “excited”.  Everyone was excited.

Governor Chris Christie ecstatically welcomed him to New Jersey.  The Daily News had the Statue of Liberty in his famous stance.  His legion of fans were ready to take New York by storm.

Tim Tebow, coming off a surprise season where he relieved Kyle Orton in Denver and led the Broncos to a playoff overtime victory, was now a Jet.  Woody Johnson and Mike Tannenbaum helped complete the trade – giving Denver a 4th and 6th round pick – and putting the Jets right back in the forefront with the second consecutive sports story to knock the standing Super Bowl Champion Giants off the covers.

Tebowmania was here.

So was the end of the Jets season.  We just didn’t know it yet.

The Sanchize Crashes and Burns – The End of Defending Sanchez

And Possible Future Replacements

sancheztitans
The time to defend Mark Sanchez is over.

There are no more reasons.  There are no more excuses.  There are no more stats.  There are no more playoff victories to look at.

Lack of talent around him no longer matters.

No, Sanchez was tasked with one thing to do: Protect the ball long enough to beat three more bad teams and make the playoffs.  He could not do that.

Lin and Capitalism: Why Booing Him is Linsane

Jeremy Lin returns to Madison Square Garden tonight in his first game back in New York since the Linsanity craze hit Manhattan earlier this year.  He also returns a far richer man, one who no longer has to sleep on Landry Fields’ couch, nor has to rent a house from David Lee.

Nope.  Earlier this year, Lin left the Knicks amid a stir – he signed a three year, $25 million offer sheet with the Houston Rockets – a contract that the Knicks left unclaimed and allowed the one popular guy they had on the team go.

The Jets…and the P Word

Braylon+Edwards+Colts
I won’t say it.  This Jets team doesn’t deserve it.

A month ago, there was no reason to believe the word should ever be uttered again.

A team that has sputtered, made terrible mistakes, encountered injury after injury, has a lemon of a foundation, and has only been consistent in being awful offensively…they should be dead in the water.

So not a chance – I won’t say the word.

Bringing Back Braylon

Wild Card Playoffs - New York Jets v Indianapolis Colts

Today at 4:00 PM EST, we will learn if Braylon Edwards has been claimed off waivers by any team or if he will be signed by the Jets.  This move is two years in the making and as thought by many, a fixing of a mistake Mike Tannenbaum and the Jets brass – allowing Braylon to walk after the last AFC Championship appearance.

#BringBackBraylon

*Update* At 4:25 PM, the Jets announced,

“The Jets today have been awarded WR Braylon Edwards off waivers from the Seattle Seahawks.”
