In the past, I've been accused of being a Tim Tebow hater, and that's not simply not true. He's a dynamic player, but I'm not sure he can be successful in a long term capacity as an NFL starter. Regardless of your personal feelings on Tebow as a starting quarterback, it's a proven fact that he can excite a fanbase like no other player in the NFL, and for the Jets, that may not be a great thing.
The problem the Jets are setting themselves up for is the Tebow effect. That is, the Jets' fanbase is already at a level of impatience with starter Mark Sanchez. Metlife Stadium is a big place, and at the first sign of trouble, there will be tens of thousands of fans all chanting for Tim Tebow to be put into the game.
When asked about the possibility of a two-quarterback system being effective in the NFL, Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes told the NFL Network,
"No, I don't think so. You have to allow one quarterback to get into the rhythm of the game. It...

The New York Jets defense struggled heavily when it came to covering the tight end last season. Basically, if a team had a good receiving tight end, they exploited the hell out of Rex Ryan’s defense. Jason Witten finished with 110 yards, including a 64 yarder. Fred Davis grabbed 6 passes for 99 yards. Brent Celek went off for 156 yards and a touchdown. Rob Gronkowski pulled in...
New York Jets games in 2011 were filled with turnovers – the Jets were tied for second in the NFL with 31 takeaways but also had the most giveaways in the league with 34. Turnovers are part of the sudden change aspect of the game. Unpredicted, games can turn at any time on a given play. Are turnovers truly unpredictable? Do the trends suggest that the Jets are in for an upswing...

During an appearance on an NFL.com podcast with Dave Damesheck, Santonio Holmes commented on his current relationship with Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez.
“One day you have a fight the next day you make up,” Holmes said.
He also took some time...
Are you a Jets fan that believes Santonio Holmes has changed his attitude from last year (being a selfish WR Diva) and has turned the corner? How can YOU be sure that we won’t get a repeat of last season?
If Mark Sanchez is doing his thing and feeding Santonio the ball, I suspect everything will be quiet and you will see all smiles, but what happens if Mark struggles? What...
According to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen via NFL.com, the New York Jets can only wait and see if cornerback Darrelle Revis holds out from the start of training camp.
“I think (the Jets) are going to see what Revis does,” Mortensen said. “He’s kept everyone guessing. I’m almost going to be surprised if he’s there day one.”
I wouldn’t be shocked if Revis decides...
We all know that Tim Tebow has, dare I say, a magical way of drawing crowds. His Easter speech this past April had 15,000 folks flock to Texas, and his Father’s Day sermon in California saw a crowd of 26,000 gather to catch a glimpse of the quarterback.
So, naturally, it comes as no surprise that the Jets are bracing themselves for when Tebowmania hits training camp just days from...
The Jets will be an interesting team to keep an eye on this season. If their season gets off to a shaky start I see the wheels falling off.
It isn’t Tebow’s fault that he is a megastar for off the field reasons, but the Jets are going to try to carry out something that has proven not to work in the NFL.
Santonio Holmes shares his thoughts on the Two Quarterback system..
Jets mercurial wideout Santonio Holmes shared his thoughts with the NFL network crew on how he thinks Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow will coexist in New York.
If you ever needed proof that owning an NFL franchise is a very fruitful endeavor, Forbes Magazine has it. Forbes ranked the 50 most valuable sports franchises around the world and all 32 NFL teams made the list. The New York Jets checked in at No. 12 on the full list and are the fifth [...]
We are kicking around new features on TVF, and this may be one of the ones that sticks, or not. Tim Tebow of the New York Jets is currently the 2nd greatest backup QB in the NFL, squarely sitting behind the first in Mark Sanchez. Ideas about how Tebow might be used have been volleyed [...]
According to Rich Cimini of ESPNNewYork.com, team insiders have told him that the Jets plan on replacing quarterback Mark Sanchez in the red zone with Tim Tebow in order to help their running game have more success.
I understand what the Jets are doing, but they’re opening themselves up for a mid-season quarterback controversy if and when Tebow looks better running the offense.
