Tim Tebow scoring a TD on the Jets in 2010 I never thought that Tim Tebow was a NFL style quarterback, and thus far into his short career I have been correct.  Even John Fox doesn’t think he can handle being an NFL quarterback attempting only 8 passes last week and completing 2 of them.  He said this week that he can’t handle a normal NFL offense and that the option or spread offense is the only way for him to succeed.  With that being said the Jets defense better eat him alive, no excuses.  He can’t throw it downfield and I have complete confidence in Revis & Cromartie shutting down both receivers allowing the rest of the defense to focus on Tebow running the ball.  They should be able to run blitz him all night to slow down from him running the qb sweeps, qb draws, and the read runs. As far as the offense goes they have to stretch the field more and utilize the strength they have on the outside.  Holmes is a deep threat and can burn any defender lining up across from him.  Plaxico has been getting better and more comfortable in the offense.  They are starting to use him more and not just in the red zone.  He has become a big target for Sanchez to hit.   Keller is good at attacking the safeties and running routes down the seam.  This opens up the underneath routes for LT, McKnight where they can beat linebackers 1 on 1. The reason I bring this up is because they have thrown the ball over 30 yards this year only 4 times, yes 4 times.  With the way the league has made it very hard to defend receivers there is no reason not to throw it more.  Maybe it goes against Rexes ground and pound mentality but I feel like this has been a problem no matter who the coach was.  The thing that makes it so frustrating is because when they do attempt to go downfield it usually works either with a completion or they call pass interference.  Sanchez has the arm strength to make the throws so that what makes this so mindboggling.
