PLAYERS: Tim Tebow
TEAMS: New York Jets
Tim Tebow was voted the most overrated player in the National Football League based on a Sports Illustrated poll released earlier this week. Of the 180 players who participated in the survey 34 percent found Tebow to be the most overrated. Ironically Tebow’s teammate, the Jets starting quarterback, Mark Sanchez finished tied for second in the poll with 8 percent of the vote. Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo also received 8 percent of the vote. Michael Vick  finished fourth in the poll receiving 4 percent of the vote while Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis finished fifth with 3 percent of the vote. Prior to the season starting Tebow was ranked as one of the top 100 players in the NFL. Tebow currently is the backup quarterback for the Jets. He has been on the field for 55 snaps this season and his biggest contribution this season has come in the form of fake punts in which he has run for two first downs and thrown for another.

The Jets are so much fun to cover.  There is never a lack of story lines, angles to watch and news coming out of their camp.  Tim Tebow has not been allowed to show what he can do and Sanchez is still not showing that he's a good QB.  The fact that this team has lost talent at every position since Ryan arrived is being ignored by all the Tebow distractions.  I expect to see...

Why don’t the Jets use Tebow as their placekick holder?

Running Tebow into the line is dumb. There’s no Tebometer this week, Tim Tebow didn’t throw a pass in the Jets 29-26 OT loss to New England on Sunday.  He did get to run the ball four times though, for a grand total of 12 yards.  Even though I don’t think he’s much of an asset, I assumed the Jets would at least try to use him creatively.  Pretty much all he did was...
