To me, Tebow does not belong in the QB crowd listed in your post.
He has a knack for making defense sort of freeze up, hesitate.

He took out the Steelers in the playoffs last year, Showtime. I'm not saying that we crown him yet. I don't think he's that good, honestly.

I am just saying that Rex is goofy like his daddy was. He thinks he can maybe put a spark in the team's ass, on MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL, at home, by putting in the guy that so many people think can save them from themselves. Pun intended.

That's not me saying he's good. I'm only saying that if I know Rex Ryan, he's going to flirt with the idea. Nobody can be so naive as to make themselves think that the Jets brought Tebow to NY to just let him sit there and take three snaps a game, to be a rah-rah guy and that's it.

All of this is the perfect storm for the Jets to nudge Ryan into the direction of trying Tebow out, in as perfect of a storm as could be presented tbh, juuuuust to see if it works. They're already going to lose if they start Sanchez, so why not throw a curve ball and see if the relief pitcher makes a difference?

Holmes will likely be out. They have no running game. Tebow would be minced meat against us, but Sanchez even more IMO. Rex Ryan is desperate. Nobody is going to blame him for it if he tries it, so I think he ends up trying it.

Remember: Everyone thought I was nuts for saying the Dolphins would cut Troy nolan after about two weeks into the season..."The Dolphins have a legitimate need at Safety, GP! You have a tin foil hat GP! Ha ha!" and yet the Dolphins did what I knew they would do. Rex will start Tebow OR at a minimum he'll yank Sanchez and replace him....and the crowd will go nuts for it.

It can go either way, Jets could get the win.

Or, The Texans will blow them out.

I guess we will find out in eight days.

As for my prediction, I bet the vets remember that painful comeback victory two years ago and dominate up front.

DOMINATE!!!!
Go Texans!
Yes, it was nothing pretty. And it happened on more than one occasion.

The NFLN Game Highlights crew just spent an amazing amount of time talking about how bad the Jets are today.

Even when the Jets suck really REALLY badly, they still get the same amount of air time. LOL. It's like a disease.

Rex will try and throw us a curve ball by featuring Tebow, at home, on a big setting such as MNF. Bank on it.
I think that any history before last year is completely irrelevant at this point. But I did think before the season that whatever the Jets had cooking with Tebow would get unveiled in the game against us on MNF. Not so sure about that anymore since the Jets have to be pretty desperate. Things haven't exactly worked for them aside from the first game. At some point you do whatever you can to win the game, even if that means unveiling the Tebow offence full force ahead of schedule.

In other words, I think the Tebow experiment has already failed in NY, and they're not going to surprise us by anything next week.

On NFLN, a poll of fans had *70% saying Jets should switch to Tebow.

*Survey conducted at Chick-Fil-A locations in the southern and midwestern states, however.

Don't discount the Tim Tebom in primetime magic factor!!!

But seriously, I think they are probably in the same talent range as the Jags and Titans so we should handle business pretty efficiently.

Let's say 26-10 to the good guys.

All I know is that Em Diggy will predict that our running backs are about as talented as the Jets. Skill set wise

Texans 30

It's over by half time.

Each week we get dressed up, we bring our ball, but nobody wants to play with us. They go through the motions, but I just get the feeling they would rather play with someone else.
