Today’s installment of New York Jets quarterback drama is brought to you by wide receiver Jeremy Kerley. When the Star-Ledger asked Kerley how the newly acquired Tim Tebow throws the ball, Kerley had this to say:
“Different than Mark, different than Mark. (Tebow’s) ball comes out a little bit stronger, but he’s accurate, he’s more accurate than what I thought he was going to be. But he’s a good dude, he has a great personality, he’ll bring a lot of personality to the team.”
Kerley was then asked how hard the ball was thrown. This was his response to Tim Tebow’s velocity:
“A LOT, a lot more velocity. No dis to Mark, he brings it, man.”
In closing, Kerley had this to say about his new teammate:
“It was a good shocked. We got a winner on our team. Obviously, that’s what he is. I was shocked but I was happy.”
The plot thickens.
Since it’s not really a “dis” to Mark Sanchez, I guess it’s okay to say. Wait, it’s not cool at all, because this is just another wrench thrown into the whole operation. The drama of this thing is already at a high now, just wait until the season starts. Careers will be made covering the New York Jets this season. Any amount of gossip or dirt will be published and re-published by papers, blogs, websites, etc. I almost feel bad for Mark Sanchez, but since he’s a bit of a prima donna, and gets way more tail than any of us can dream of, I don’t feel sorry for him at the end of the day.
As I wrote last week, the New York Jets are better off starting Tim Tebow now – let him fail which he will undoubtedly do against the Jets’ tough schedule – and Mark Sanchez can come save the day against the Indianapolis Colts. The preemptive quarterback switch I called it, similar to the preemptive break-up we saw George Costanza do in Seinfeld.
