Just reading the headline, some of you may have just blown a gasket.How could I possibly suggest Tebow should be the starting RB or third down back?Before the season, I read multiple articles about how Shonn Greene was expected to have a breakout year and be a beast for the Jets. Where have I heard that before? Oh, for the past 2-3 years, and I am still waiting.Greene is simply not a viable starting RB. He is barely serviceable most of the time. Look at his statistics from his games so far this year.Week 1: 27 carries for 97 yards and 1 TD. (Disclaimer. This is against the Buffalo Bills)Week 2: 11 carries for 23 yardsWeek 3: 19 carries for 40 yardsWeek 4: 11 carries for 34 yardsWeek 5: 8 carries for 26 yardsThose numbers don’t exactly get you excited, do they?Andre Brown, NYG rookie and backup RB, only has 19 less yards total this season on the ground than Greene, if that gives you an idea of how putrid he has been.Now, I am a Tebow guy. I believe if you can find a spot on the field for him, put him there.He works hard and will give you all he’s got. He may not be a natural RB, but he may be of use there.If he is in the game in the backfield, the Wildcat or a trick play is always a threat. And as we saw this last week, Rex isn’t afraid to use some smoke and mirrors.Let’s be honest with ourselves; the Jets aren’t a good team. They won’t make the playoffs and their season is a wash already. Why not give the fans what they want?And that’s Tebow.If you can’t make money through winning, you may as well bring the circus to town.Someone once said that any publicity is good publicity. I’m not sure if I agree with that, but the Jets don’t have anything to lose, except their season, which I believe is already lost.Let the hate mail begin…The post Is Tim Tebow The Answer For The Jets…At Running Back? appeared first on Midwest Sports Fans.
