"I would not join any club that would have someone like me for a member." - Groucho Marx
Surprised Jax didn't offer at least a 4th. Would've been worth it to them.
I think it's a decent trade for NY. it's only a 4th rounder.
They'll likely try to use Tebow in different spots and under center in certain situations. They are a run oriented team anyway.
And they have a backup option if Sanchez doesn't develop. Maybe it pushes Sanchez since there was talk he wasn't always the hardest worker.
Let me know when Sanchez finishes a year where his completion rate is less than 50%.
The Broncos were really a 5-11 team that benefitted from some unreal luck last year, mostly on defense/STs. And Tebow didn't beat the Jets. Sanchez threw a terrible pick-6. The Broncos offense only scored one TD against the Jets. And I'm sure Sanchez could put up more than 3 points against the Chiefs.
Even if Tebow only runs the wildcat a few times a game. A 4th rounder might be worth it.
The effect it has on Sanchez is waht I will be interested in. If Sanchez is as fragile as some say this could be disastrous. Judging by his comments after the restructured contract about teammates now needing to recognize him as a leader this is a real possibility.
Tebow could lead to a locker room split, worse than it was. Which would be fun to watch.
On the other hand, Sanchez has not seem to progress they way the Jets hoped and there were some comments about him not working the hardest so maybe the Jets are hoping this sparks something in him. I'm hoping not and I'm not convinced there is anything there to spark.
