    It's a no brainer... It's SO TEBOW TIME!!! Look he took Denver to the playoffs in a situation similar to this last year I think he's proved to all of us he deserves a shot! Sanchez has proven he needs to step aside... His performance has showed that from day one!! Rex Ryan put the ego aside and play Tebow!!! How much louder does the stadium's crowd have to get with the chants of "Tebow!"????

    Give Tebow a chance and let God worked through him to help your team.

    1. Please send the results of this poll to Rex Ryan. It can't do any harm and it might
    do some good.

    2. I watched every game Tim Tebow played last year with the Broncos. Anyone who says
    he is not an NFL WINNING quarterback is either blind or a bigot. He led the Broncos
    to the playoffs despite a coach and general manager who had no faith in him and were
    hoping he would fail. His 7 wins and 4 losses last season should have been, at least,
    8 and 3. The loss to Kansas City was the worst coached professional football game I
    have ever seen in more than 55 years of observing the NFL (back to when George
    Blanda was the Bear's quarterback). Head coach Fox deliberately restrained Tim
    from passing in that game as his (Fox's) idea of how to avoid a loss and clinch the
    division title. They lost anyway, but still won the division.

    3. It has become obligatory in every commentary about Tim Tebow for the writer to
    state, "as fact", that Tim Tebow cannot pass. His 46.5% completion percentage is
    constantly cited as proof and this statistic alone "proves" that Tim is not, and
    cannot be, an NFL quarterback.

    This is nonsense. Tim Tebow can, and has demonstrated that he can, pass. During
    the 2011 regular season Tim threw 271 passes and completed 126. This was
    accomplished with a subpar group of receivers who, in addition to having a tough
    time getting open, dropped many well-thrown balls. Against the Bears six passes
    were dropped, against the Vikings four were dropped, and against the Chiefs three
    were dropped, and only eight were thrown! Also, few passes were thrown to a
    tight end or a back. Where were these "safety valves" when Tim had to throw the
    ball away because the wide receivers were not open? Many other NFL teams
    completed more that 100 passes to their tight ends, one team completed 169! The
    Broncos tight ends caught 26 (yes 26!) passes between them. Other quarterbacks
    complete many more passes to their tight ends and backs at a completion percentage
    of 80+%. This does wonders for their overall completion percentage.

    Finally, look at Tim's passing record in the playoff game versus the Steelers. He completed
    10 of 21 passes (3 dropped, one on the three yard line) for 316 yards. I believe he set
    four or five playoff game PASSING records! Check it out!

    I almost forgot, this season Tim has completed 2 of 3 passes thrown. The one incomplete
    pass was a perfectly thrown 40 yard pass which hit the wide receiver in the hands in
    full stride. I realize three passes are not a season, but he should be 3 for 3 (100%). Not
    bad for a guy who can't pass and must play " coming cold" off the bench for a head coach
    who doe not have a clue what to do with him.

    Give him a chance!

    They are in last place it would not hurt them to try Tebow out. Last year he was performing very well and if given the chance i think he could be one of the greats. I personally am not a Jets or Tebow fan but I think if they lost that bad to Miami then they need to do some major changes defensively and offensively. They need to quit allowing high scores from their opponents and get somebody in there to make completions and scramble some too. Tebow could be their ticket to come back around and Rex Ryan might make the mistake of waiting too long and not be playoff candidates. They have a great team but they are certainly not in sync maybe Tebow is what they need? As long as they can beat New England I will be happy haha.

  • Richard - 7 years ago

    Leave Sanchez in. Im a steelers fan steelers need him in there. Lol

  • JPR - 7 years ago

    All we are saying, is give Tim a chance..

  • Bm - 7 years ago

    The jets are horrible this season...and so is Rex ryan. He is to arrogant to make changes and in the end it's gonna cost him his job and someone else will come along and bench Sanchez and start tebow!! So why not save your job and Start tebow and see if he can save your season because obviously Sanchez is going no where he already has the fans against him and soon he will have his players against him. I don't know that tebow is the answer but is Sanchez really the answer right now?!?!

    Anyone who's asking to have Tebow as their starting QB obviously hasn't watched him attempt to play the QB position... which makes me wonder why they're offering an opinion. Stop and ask yourself why Elway, who understands the position, was itching to get him out of Denver? His arm and pocket awareness is not even among the top 50% of BACKUP Quarterbacks in the NFL.

    "He's proven he can win in this league" ... Really? If I put a monkey in pads and your defense and kicker team up for an ugly and unlikely win... that somehow validates his personal "ability to win"?

    It may feel good to throw a tantrum and demand a change and chant for whatever the Jets management *doesn't* want to do.... but when the collapse is complete and opponents start stacking the line play after play after play, who will you blame? Everyone keeps saying "why not play Tebow, we're out of contention anyway?" What kind of reason is that? Close your eyes and swing wildly with a visibly weaker weapon, just to see what happens?

    The only reason to put Tebow in as starting QB is to hope and pray (pun intended) that he has flashes of fake brilliance and becomes tradeable. If Jets fans want to watch this guy stink it up for this and maybe next year while the team continues to crash, simply because of his media presence, you deserve every bit of heartache the Jets organization gives you.

    Folks you have to let the coach select. After the results of a fixed numder of games I believe coach will make a change if things keep going south. I believe in coach Ryan, Tebow, then the Jets. I believe coach has that fixed number in his head and with this decision eventually coming, Tim will have great liberty to be Tim. Tim continues to show strong character in waiting out this process. This identifies who he is once again.

  • Turtlepilot - 7 years ago

    The time is now to see if you wasted your time and money on Tim, Mark is stinking up the joint right now put Tim in and see what he's got. Either Tebow got it or he doesn't but you need to find out.

    As a Broncos fan, I watched Tebow every game last season, and I guarantee he is not an improvement over Sanchez. The Jets O line is terrible, their run game is terrible, and their receivers are mediocre. There is no reason to blame Shanchez (entirely) for the shortcomings of the team. For once I agree with Rex Ryan, Sanchez is the best chance for the Jets to win. Its just not a big chance.

    Tebow is a glorified fullback. It's painful to watch him try to be composed in the pocket, he throws accurately about 25% of the time (see: Overtime TD pass to Thomas vs. Steelers)... The only thing he does well is scramble. Just because he's a media darling doesn't make him a good player. Start at your own risk.

    Who should be the Jets' starting quarterback?!?!

    The better question is "who should be the Jets head coach?"

    A. Rex Ryan
    B. Someone with a clue

  • Nicki - 7 years ago

    I think Tebow is the one that has proven he can win in this league. Why so much faith in Sanchez?

  • BG - 7 years ago

    Trade Tebow so he can at least have a chance to play somewhere!

  • Ned - 7 years ago

    At least give Tim a chance.
