Tim Tebow, John Fox, and Rex Ryan
Last year, I sensed John Fox had little confidence in Tim Tebow, but he knew Kyle Orton wasn’t the answer and took a chance (that and the massive public clamoring for Tebow). The rest is history.
With the arrival of Peyton Manning, Tim Tebow became as disposable as yesterday’ news and he departed Denver for the bright lights and vague promises of New York. Chances are that John Elway didn’t have much confidence in Tebow either given his desire to sign Manning and therefore, See ya Tim. Good luck and you’re a great guy and all that…
However, with the Jets, Tebow hardly takes a snap (punts excluded). Why is this? Even a blind man could see Mark Sanchez isn’t the answer.
The difference is in coaches. Fox gambled on Tebow and won. Rex Ryan gambled against Tebow and is losing. In fact, Ryan has doubled and tripled-down with Mark Sanchez, hoping against hope that he’ll become a quality NFL quarterback. While the house would normally exercise a margin call on Ryan’s bets, so far it hasn’t happened.
As Lisa Olsen says, the Jets don’t deserve Tim Tebow, perhaps because all he does is win.
