Tim Tebow Should Start At Least One Game For The New York Jets

At this point in the season, the New York Jets are toast. Their brutal performance Monday night means the last two games of the season are meaningless. It appears that Mark Sanchez will not start at quarterback the rest of the season as the spot looks to go to Greg McElroy. However, I believe that Tim Tebow should at least get a chance to start one game.

Remember, the team gave up an okay draft pick to acquire him.  If you don’t use him and you plan to get rid of him at the end of the year, that is a wasted pick.  If you want to trade him, he at least needs a chance to play one game.  I would let Tebow start one of these last two games and give the other one to McElroy.  The team needs to see what they have in both of these guys.

The coaching regime never wanted Tebow in the first place, but at least give the kid a chance.  At this point, he is not worse than anything else the Jets can do. Maybe he comes in and has a good game.  It might show some hope for 2013.  If he performs badly, you have your answer about 2013.  Let everyone go and start fresh.  It is not that hard of a decision.

I highly doubt that Tebow is given a fair shake, but that should not be the case.  Let him get at least one game to try to showcase himself.  It’s really a win-win situation for the team.
