FanSpeak: Excited for Tebow?
By Greg Newman
Did you hear the news? Tim Tebow is excited to be a New York Jet! But are the fans happy to have him?
From NYC is perfect for Mr. (Good) Deeds:
"'Forget South Beach, I'm taking my lack of talent to the Jersey Shore. - Tim Tebow"
Ed.'s note -- It worked for the cast of the reality show.
"Let's see ... the Bills destroyed the Tebow-led Broncos last year, as did the Patriots twice. Jets really should not wish for Tebow to win the starting QB job, as his recent performance against the AFC East does not bode well for future success. The Broncos did defeat the Jets and Dolphins last year (barely), however both of those teams missed the playoffs - not exactly a ringing endorsement for entry into Tom Terrific's division. I like the kid personally, but enough about being a "winner" ... let's see him produce when it counts (see the AFC Divisional loss against the patriots). He will be relevant when he produces. I've yet to see it."

Ed.'s note -- The Broncos last year were first in the NFL in rushing yards and 31st in passing yards. Tebow did not carry that team, the defense and running game did.
"The Jets got what they wanted, to dominate the back page of the NY tabloids. If they want it that bad, they can have them while the Giants win Super Bowls."
Ed.'s note -- Even though Woody Johnson insists it was not a PR move, it’s what really makes sense. Why do you extend your QB’s contract, say he’s your guy and then pick up Tim Tebow? Good question!
From Giant media turnout greets Tebow:
"Mark My Words: Sanchize gets traded on or before draft day. Miami or Tampa will make them an offer they can't refuse.. Then if you love Tebow so much.. he will be your starting QB."
Ed.'s note -- What does Miami or Tampa have to offer? Will the Jets have to eat some of that nice contract they gave Mark Sanchez? Hard to see this happening.
From Tebow ready to win over teammates:
"If you honestly think Tebow is here as a backup QB you're an idiot. The Jets have lost faith in Sanchez and so have the fans. The second he screws up and they start losing games this team becomes Tebows; so stop saying its a joke to have a PC for a backup QB because he isn't one. Did you also think Shotty was "expected" to stay in NY too? If so, you don't understand anything about this organization so just don't speak. They lie and dance around questions, everyone with a brain knows exactly whats going to happen, its almost too predictable..."
Ed.'s note -- He has to outplay Sanchez to get the starting job. Until then, he's the backup.
From Tim Tebow meets New York media:
"They say 3 ringed circus, try no rings."
- Tiger Would1
Ed.'s note -- The Giants have four rings … they just happen to be Super Bowl rings.
"If the Jets get one more "QB" they'll be featured on Hoarders"
Ed.'s note -- They got rid of Drew Stanton ... was there an intervention?
"Combined, the Jets now have .75 QB on their roster."
Ed.'s note -- Sadly that 75 percent doesn't include a good throwing arm.
"Talk all you want, that's pretty much what the Jets do all season. The Giants are still better than the Jets, one player cannot change your whole team into a super bowl contender. BIGBLUE!!!!"
- Andrew Temoltzi
Ed.'s note -- How much can Tebow change the makeup of this team? Use the comments below and let us know what you think. Because, as you can see, we read you loud and clear.
