Last season Tim Tebow was leading the Denver Broncos to the playoffs and a win over the Pittsburgh Steelers in the Wild Card round. This season, Tebow is playing back up to quarterback Mark Sanchez and taking a few snaps a game. Most of the time when Tebow is in the game he is playing out of the Wild Cat formation or fourth downs.
Now, it seems that Tim Tebow is less than thrilled with his role on the Jets.
“I think when you’re getting the ball a lot during the game you can get the rhythm of the game and I think that makes it easier,” Tebow said Wednesday, via ESPN.com. “You get a feel and a rhythm. I think spot play is fun because you’re in different roles, but at the same time it’s hard to get a feel. Sometime even if it’s just a few plays on a drive, it gets easier. Sometimes that’s the harder part of spot playing, but it is fun. I just love playing period.”
Tebow also seems to wish they were using the Wild Cat formation more effectively.
“I feel like there’s times we’ve done some good things, times it definitely hasn’t been as effective as I would have liked it sometimes,” Tebow said. “I feel like we’ve had some good plays now and then.”
From the sounds of it, Tim Tebow just wants to play. Do not be surprised if the team tries to trade Tebow in the off-season.

Well wonder no more. I saw this monstrosity on the streets today. Why anyone would want to paint their car puke green and lace it up with the New York Jets logo is beyond me. But to each its own. I guess that’s what fandom is all about.
Coming into the NFL, Tim Tebow was a long shot to be a starting quarterback.
But he took over for Denver last year and appeared to make progress — until this offseason, when he may have hurt his chances at a permanent starting job even more.
Most critics would agree that the area where Tebow needs help is his throwing motion. He takes a while to wind up to pass, resulting in fumbles...
Ever wonder how much the New York Jets actually intend to use Tim Tebow as they prepare for a team each week? A lot of Jets fans would like to know if there is even really a game plan for the rarely used quarterback.

I’ve never been a fan of Tim Tebow, but I respect what he accomplished at Florida and that he is an incredible leader. I just don’t think he can be an effective quarterback for the New York Jets, or anyone else for that matter. However, that doesn’t mean I think he can’t contribute to this Mark Sanchez-led offense.
Especially with the loss of Santonio Holmes and the struggles...
Even Tim Tebow admits that the Jets' highly secretive, oft-scrutinized Wildcat package has had its faults this year, Mike Vorkunov of the Newark Star-Ledger. Tebow has just 23 carries for 78 yards this season and completed 2-of-3 passes for 32 yards. The production has not met the hype.
"At times we've done some good things," Tebow said today. "I feel at...

Tim Tebow hasn’t been given much time to assert his presence in the Jets offense.
One season after totaling 18 touchdowns with a playoff-bound Broncos team, Tebow has been relegated to spot duty in Rex Ryan‘s offense this year. And the 25-year-old isn’t pleased with his new role.
“I think when you’re getting the ball a lot during the game you can get the rhythm of the game...
Joe Namath criticized how the Jets have built their team in 2012 on
SNY?s ?The Jets Blog Podcast? on Wednesday, questioning why the
Jets aren?t using Tim Tebow more often.
The 3-5 New York Jets have an embattled GM, a coaching staff searching for answers, and a fan base wondering where the talent and depth filled “Goddamn Snack” squads of 2009 and 2010 went. Gang Green must go 6-2 in order to have a probable shot at a postseason berth. Here are five keys needed in order to make it happen.

Mike Vorkunov of the Newark Star-Ledger writes that Jets senior personnel executive Terry Bradway was reportedly very high on Russell Wilson heading up into this year’s draft.
In fact, Wilson was nicknamed “Russell Bradway” around the Jets organization.

The Jets' front office can't seem to get enough offensive lineman to protect quarterback Mark Sanchez. Add Hayworth Hick's name to the list of the newest members of the Green and White.
The New York Jets are 3-5 this season and while players on the team continue to say words of support for quarterback Mark Sanchez, public opinion remains split. Now word come that at-least one executive inside the front office wanted to draft Russel Wilson.
