Boomer Esiason has done little to hide his disdain for Tim Tebow. In fact, it was just a few weeks ago when the former Jets quarterback suggested the current Jets quarterback should be cut from the team.

Giving his latest two cents on the topic, the CBS analyst remains convinced Tebow has no business playing QB for Gang Green, saying he shouldn’t even be backing up starter Mark Sanchez.

“I don’t believe Tebow can be your everyday backup quarterback,” Esiason said Tuesday, via USA Today. “Sanchez is clearly your starter, and (Greg) McElroy will be the backup. Tebow can do his thing playing on special teams.”

Instead, Esiason proposed the Jets run a “special package” of plays in case Tebow ends up under center.

It’s no secret the much-ballyhooed signal-caller has experienced a shaky beginning to his career in New York. He’s been heckled by fans, chided by the media, and, in exhibition contests, done little to move the Jets’ stagnant offense. Esiason concedes that neither Sanchez nor Tebow have “looked good” in new coordinator Tony Sparano’s admittedly “vanilla” preseason display. However, Tebow’s flaws — like his infamously bad throwing mechanics — are still prevalent to the naked eye.

“But ex-quarterbacks and coaches can see his inability to throw the ball forward on a consistent basis,” Esiason added.
