There was plenty of drama surrounding the New York Jets heading into the 2012 season after the team acquired Tim Tebow from the Denver Broncos–despite the fact they already had Mark Sanchez as their starting quarterback. After finishing 6-10 during the regular season, the one thing that stood out the most in New York was the acquisition of Tebow was a huge mistake as he completed just two of eight passes all season to go along with 102 rushing yards last year.
While there’s no telling where Tebow will land for the 2013 season, it appears that Jets owner Woody Johnson didn’t even want Tebow on board in the first place for this past season. Johnson discussed this week how former Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum “forced” the trade with Tebow to happen and basically said that he never wanted the quarterback on the team in the first place.
If this does happen to be true–then it looks like Johnson knew what he was doing all along.
Despite helping the Broncos reach the playoffs during the 2011 season, one of the top debates over the last couple of years has been whether or not Tebow is capable of being a starting quarterback in the NFL. Mechanics have always been an issue for Tebow at quarterback and if a team like the Jacksonville Jaguars isn’t even interested in bringing him on board for the 2013 season–that alone should be a major sign when it comes to how NFL teams really feel about the quarterback being a starter in the league.
