With all the media attention that the Jets have received the past week, they have shown why they will struggle this year. First, Tebow and Sanchez struggled immensely throwing the ball so far during training camp. Next, Antonio Cromartie claimed he could be the number 2 wide receiver for the Jets. While I do think he could play wide receiver, he could not be the second best receiver. With comments flying around the locker room, the Jets have shown exactly why last season exploded in their face when Santonio Holmes quit on his team. Holmes is currently hurt with a bruised rib. Although Rex Ryan looks good losing tons of weight, he will add fuel to this seasons troubles with Tebow and Sanchez. Rex will say many things that add to the conversation of when will Tebow start.
The Jets will start with a win at home against the Buffalo Bills. The Jets will rely on the running game and the strong defense. Next up are at the Steelers. The Jets will not be able to power run against the Steelers. The Steelers will win the game. The Jets will start 3-5 and will head into their bye week trailing the Patriots. If the Jets lose to the Seahawks in week 10, Tebow should be allowed to start week 11 at the Rams. Not because he deserves it but because I will be at the game. Up until week 10 I think the Jets will not use Tebow much in some games and use him as much as a third down back in others.
The Jets offensive coordinator Tony Sparano will be huge for the Jets. He will keep a great balance between Tebow and Sanchez. Sparano, the creator of the Wildcat with the Dolphins will not be able to run the exact same type of Wildcat because Tebow is not as fast as Rickey Williams and Ronnie Brown. Tebow will be forced to pick his holes between the tackles. In the end I do not see Tebow ever starting a game and the Jets will finish 7-9. The controversy between Tebow and Sanchez will carry on the whole season while the media should be talking about how well the defense will play.
As always, Go Tebow
