Just one game into the 2012 campaign, questions on Tim Tebow’s long term future with the Jets are already beginning to pile up, and while he’s been careful to toe the company line during his time thus far in New York, the signs are beginning to point towards Tebow pushing his way out of town at season’s end.

Citing an NFL source, the New York Daily News is of the belief that the longer Tebow remains the backup for the Jets, the more he’ll desire to extricate himself to a team in need of a starting quarterback in the off-season. Their reasoning is based on Tebow’s reputation as a “football-aholic” and it makes sense that he would want to do anything he could to get himself into a more favorable position with a club going forward.

The Jets, for their part, seem content to keep Tebow on a short leash, using him in a variety of ways but rarely as a passer, preferring instead to stick with Sanchez for the time being on that front. What they do when the going gets rough though is anyone’s best guess, as it will be tough to keep Tebow on the bench if Sanchez is unable to lead them to post-season success.

In any case, Tebow’s future is firmly in the hands of the Jets management for better or worse, and any playing time he gets will be based solely on the ups and downs of Sanchez, rather than his own hard work and effort on the field. Forcing the Jets hand will require a different approach than we’re used to with Tebow, as he’ll have to make his case publicly and drop his team-first attitude to make it more advantageous for New York to send him elsewhere in the off-season.

  • Go back to Florida and work for your god. You will never be an NFL starting QB.
  • Give him to Cleveland, he cant do worse than Weeden!
  • I wish that Tebow would come to Buffalo.

    I think he would do alot better than the quarterback that
    we have now.

    I think he's a really good guy in football and his life.
