Can Tebow Help Improve the Jets Offense?

The New York Jets acquired Time Tebow from the Denver Broncos last week and the media has-been-buzzing all about Tebow being in the big city. As usual, they are blowing everything out of proportion and creating a stir about the new back-up quarterback for the Jets. Never before in the NFL has there been this much controversy about a back-up quarterback.

It has-been-confirmed in the media that Mark Sanchez, the Jets current quarterback is-frustrated with the Jets move to acquire Tebow. However, with the information that Tebow conveyed at his press conference on Monday afternoon, it seems the two quarterbacks are getting along fine. The fact is that Sanchez struggled last season and he has a lot to prove this year. Especially, with Tebow on the sideline just waiting to get his chance to become a starting quarterback again.

Is Tebow really the best answer for the Jets lack of offense? Last year the Jets had countless three and out possessions and that was with Sanchez taking the snaps. Therefore, what puzzles me is why would they believe that Tebow, who was actually worse than Sanchez in that-category, would improve the situation. However, I do believe that Tebow can-be a valuable asset to the Jets offense this season.

If Sanchez and Tebow can learn to coexist, which I believe they will. They can use some creative offensive formations to throw off their opponents defense and keep them off-balance. Although, the wildcat formation has-been-used abundantly in the NFL, it can still be prosperous. For example, last year Tebow was known for his running abilities and defenses were well aware of it. Yet, somehow he was still able to win games and move the ball down the field using the wildcat formations.

Everyone in the stadium knew Tebow was going to run the ball and by using his athletic abilities, he was able to gain positive yards even though the defense predicted the plays. How many times did he shock the world last year because we didn't believe he would survive in the NFL. He silenced his critics, who were so sure he was not good enough to win in the NFL. Consequently, here we are again and the media is singing the same old tune.

In conclusion, I believe the Jets can use Tebow's "play-making abilities" to improve the Jets offense and turn them into playoff contenders again. The only drawback to this trade is if Sanchez gets injured, because I don't know if Tebow can shoulder the load without him. With his passing completion percentage under 50%, it will be difficult to-remain successful in the NFL. However, he has-proven when the game is on the line, his skills improve dramatically. I know one thing for sure, it really will be a three-ring circus in New York this year inside the Jets locker-room.
