There is no logic behind this move, only anti-logic. It's funny but both the Jags and the Jets look foolish in this deal. One for getting Tebow and one for failing to get Tebow. This has to be one of the worst possible locations for him to be traded. Also, after the Jags dropped the ball on this one, we may as well start referring to them as the L.A. Jaguars.

4th and a 6th for Tebow and a 7th.

On the plus side, this is completely hilarious and I can't seen how Tebow can possibly fit into the Jets plans.

On the negative side, Tebow lovers have a new excuse to lean on as to why Tebow never made it in the NFL.

Yeah, I'm shocked the Jags wouldn't give up a third rounder for him. From a financial standpoint alone, it's worth it.

I have no idea why the Jets would to this. Rex just can't help himself.


Yeah, but they could have offered their fourth and it would have been better than the Jets' fourth. Did the Broncos just jump on the first offer?

I think this is a fine move. It's hilarious, but a 4th round pick isn't that high a price to pay to find out if Tebow's vagina is really made of magic.

If you look at just the trade then yes it is a fine move. The problem is everything else. How does it affect Sanchez? The locker room? Cromartie already saying he didn't want Tebow?

The circus that will follow is what makes this a bad move.

If I was Jacksonville I wouldn't TOUCH him.

let's face it, he kind of sucks. Imagine that he really sucks there, the external pressures on the QB decision would be deafening.

Cimini torches the Jets

3. The risk far exceeds the potential upside. At best, the Jets get a change-of-pace quarterback who can run the Wildcat a few times per game, gain 20 or 30 yards and cause a small headache for the defense. At worst, they get a divisive quarterback controversy that undermines incumbent Mark Sanchez.

This is amazing and could not have happened to a bigger douche than Sanchez.

I can't wait for Sanchez to have his first three pick game and then everyone start clamoring for Tebow to replace the "leader" of the Jets.

Or alternatively, it motivates Mark Sanchez to improve, because whether it's absurd or not, Tebow could threaten his job security.

I doubt adding Tebow will really blow up the Jets locker room either. The players seemed to like him in Denver at least.

They just gave Sanchez a 3 year extension which makes it very difficult to cut or trade him without huge cap ramifications.

That's because they believed in what he was preaching. He needs to be a leader and have a locker room that is willing to follow him. He'll get neither in NY.

It is all gold!

I love the suggestion that Tebow can help in the locker room. The lukewarm comments from Thomas and McGahee yesterday to me indicate that there may have been a lot of simmering resentment in that locker room over all the attention Tebow was receiving for their success.

I think they liked him after they started winning some games. I don't remember a lot of support before they went on their run. He won't even be given the chance to put the Jets on a winning streak and if he did he'd probably fail anyway.

I'm buddies with Tagaris, too -- that's awesome. But I think this wins it:

Well at least they have an offense with a lot of short and intermediate check downs, so that works in Tebow's favor if/when he is pressed into action.

Tebow leads at 53%, while New York and Jersey both have him at 54%

It's already begun.

It's a pretty big double edged sword. If he's not starting at QB or has a substantial role on the team (and by that I mean starting somewhere and doing well), his influence probably won't be substantive enough to overwhelm the media firestorm this will start. If he does start, they just gave a brand new contract to their QB to replace him before he plays a single down.

I love Tim Tebow the player, warts and all, but NYJ may have been the worst fit I could imagine.

I don't expect them to cut or trade him. I expect them to keep Sanchez as the starter for as long as they can.

I still think Tebow could play an interesting role on an NFL team - circus aside, I'd have been fine giving up a 4th round pick for him to the Patriots.

Based only on how he acted on Hard Knocks, I can't imagine an NFL QB less equipped to deal with the fans demanding the backup than Sanchez. I like Tebow, but this doesn't seem like the right fit.

I remember watching the the Jets-Broncos game this year where neither QB could hit the broad side of the barn with a pass and I thought to myself that out of Tebow and Sanchez, I would prefer Tebow at the helm. Sanchez has the maturity of an 18 year old and it shows on the field.

In hindsight, it's pretty clear this was a PR move, not true regret -- otherwise, the Jags would've coughed up the picks to make this trade happen.

Holy shit. If you were annoyed by the volume of Tebowmania the worst thing possible just happened - it got turned up to 11.

I have no idea what the Jets are trying to accomplish - Shelterdog breaks down the cap consequences of the Sanchize's extension on the previous page and it is simply not feasible for the Jets to cut him without severe penalties and I can't imagine anyone would trade anything for the Sanchize, at this point.

Tebow + Sparano makes some sense, sort of, but since Rex & his staff are most likely going to walk the plank if they finish below the Bills in 2012, this is ludacrisp.

Oh, and a 4th & 6th for Tebow & a 7th is more than I thought the Broncos would get.

The Jets just traded for the only starting QB in the NFL that the Patriots secondary can contain.


More seriously, given how much Denver played with Tebow, despite much of that being the defense, special teams, and the running game, you have to at least entertain the notion that Tebow over Sanchez might actually be a net gain for the Jets in ways that we can't really measure up front.

Less seriously, AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!
