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.

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.
