Found October 01, 2012 on Football Nation:
The New York Jets had goals for the 2012 season.  We wanted to challenge the Patriots and bring New York Football back from Big Blue to Gang Green. Mark Sanchez was supposed to breakout this year.  He was going to become the next Peyton Manning.  As of right now, none of those goals are going to happen.First of all let me just make something perfectly clear.  Tim Tebow should not be the answer.  The Jets should’ve never traded for Tebow.  They should’ve resigned Plaxico Burress, who scored 8 touchdowns and was a great outside threat for the team last season.  The Jets needed to improve the offensive line in the offseason, where they were (and still are) especially weak.  Instead they sign a Saturday Night Live traveling circus by the name of Tim Tebow.Unfortunately those are the things the Jets should’ve work to improve.  They didn’t do those things and we all have to move on from those decisions.  The Jets (and more importantly their fans) have 2 QBs that can’t throw the football a...

Is it time for a “Sanchez-ometer” in New York?

Tim Tebow threw his first pass of the year yesterday, a week later than I predicted.  Surprisingly he was able to complete it, leaving his success rate for the season at a very impressive 100%.  Unfortunately the 1-1 performance didn’t do much for his career completion percentage (aka the Tebometer), which is still only 47.5%. But the Jets backup QB can take solace in the fact...
