It looks like the fans of the New York Jets are finally getting their wish, it’s TEBOW TIME!! Only thing is it will be at the position I keep saying he’d be best at, running back. With multiple injuries to the Jets backfield, Tim Tebow is the Jet’s best option behind starter Shonn Greene.
@RichCimini: With McKnight, Powell banged up, Tebow could be used as RB. “A possibility,” Ryan said. #Jets
Cimini went further to say that the Jets didn’t sign a backup specifically because of Tebow and his ability to play the run. So what’s that mean? He’ll most likely see more then his season high of five carries and based on size and ability, well I’m sure he’d get the short yardage carries over Greene.
I think these injuries to Bilal Powell and Joe McKnight are going to be a blessing in disguise for New York. I’ve thought for a while that Tebow’s future in the NFL is as a running back who can help out and bring back the halfback option. It would be much more effective then the wildcat gimmick.
