Stephen A. Smith Hates the Tebow Deal......


Recommended Posts

Most of the media thinks we're crazy for bringing the man in.

Consider this people, the group of Jets haters all around, that want nothing but controversy for the New York Jets think this deal is a joke.

I absolutely love it....the day in which our FO does what the media wants is when I know this franchise is in trouble.

The Jets are a better team today for a 4th round pick (we have a 6th compensatory pick coming our way that offsets the 6th) and the fact that most think this deal stinks, makes it much better for us

Let Rex do his thing with this guys. Tim Tebow wanted to be a Jet. I am now a fan.

What else is new? That little bug-headed loud mouth fool hates everything about the Jets. Come to think of it, he plays the same tired act when it comes to the Knicks, too. He needs to be stuffed into luggage and left unattended at the Greyhound terminal.

I have yet to see a single media source that isn't pointing and laughing at the Jets right now.

Jake Glazer liked it... Torry Holt... National guys will like it better..

Stephen A Smith is a disciple of Satan and Bill Belichick(who is an agent of Satan). He hates this deal because it brings LIGHT to the Jets and will lead them to conquer the evil New England Patriots. When Sanchez finally gets cut to clear the way for Tebow, the Jets will finally conquer the hellspawn that is Bill Belichick and his army of sinners(Gronkowski, Hernandez, Chad Ochocino, Wes Welker, Logan Mankins, etc). GOD is on our side folks. Satan better watch out. TIM TEBOW'S LOVE CONQUERS ALL!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah, I guess.

On the other hand, Elway just wanted Tebow off the roster to avoid any distraction. It's not as if Tebow was a threat to Manning. On the Jets, with Sanchez and the media, the distraction will be giant and constant. I feel the same way now as I do when the Jets pick up an ex-Steeler. It seems the other team is just a bit smarter than we are.

Elway wanted Tebow off the roster because of the distraction that Manning posed to Tebow's mission to purge evil from the Earth. You see, Elway accepted Tim Tebow into his heart just as all Jets fans should. He sent Tebow to the Jets KNOWING that Tim Tebow could cleanse the New York Jets and allow for Santonio Holmes to stop being a jackass, allow for Antonio Cromartie to stop making babies, allow for Bart Scott to become a better teammate, and most importantly allow for Mark Sanchez to leave the NFL and pursue opportunities in men's fashion because he sure as hell does not belong in the NFL. Elway did the Jets a huge favor, nay, Elway did the WORLD a huge favor; show your appreciation!

Adam Schein was on SNY last night and said he liked it. He spoke peole on the Jets and they feel he will push Mark and maybe allow them to use different packages. He also said that the JETS don't care about Mark's feelings.

Heh. At the moment the Jets r the laughing stock of the NFL. Elway just wanted to be rid of a distraction and the Jets readily obliged him. It feels like such a sucker move - like signing an ex-Steeler, which the Jets have done 3x in recent years (Faneca was done, Holmes is a thug, Plex was both).

Can Jeremy Lin punt?

God bless Tim Tebow and the Jets.

Correction: The Jets are the team that Tim Tebow himself personally chose to play for. The Miami Dolphins, the team that no one wants to coach or play for and whose fans protest while clutching Dan Marino dolls, is the laughingstock of the NFL.

Elway also had fears that Tim Tebow would come into training camp and take the starting job away from Peyton Manning. You see, Tim Tebow has GOD on his side and ANGELS guide his passes. If Manning was on the roster with him in camp completing over 60% of his passes this would force GOD to endow Tebow with the ability to complete 70% of his passes. Elway did not want to set the NFL on fire by having a 70% completion player in Tim Tebow. This could have resulted in serious sanctions for the Broncos including forcing them to give up $70 million in cap space for not paying Tebow enough money and then they would have been forced to cut Von Miller, Champ Bailey, and Elvis Dumervil along with forfeitting their entire draft. Roger GODDELL does not want to be challenged and Elway didn't want to tempt GODDELL to seek Satan's power so he deemed it was in the best interest of humanity to trade Tebow. I hope that helps.

What exactly is Rex's "thing".

In my opinion, the addition of Tebow is nothing more than a publicity stunt by an organization that is desperately trying to make headlines. I like Tebow, but I think this will create a lot of tension and Sanchez will suffer from this added distraction.

Steven A. Smith is not alone in his criticism. Joe Namath blasted the Jet front office and questioned whether they know what they are doing. He couldn't have been any more critical.

I spent a lot of time driving yesterday and heard many different points of view, and very few were in favor of this. Steven A. is certainly not alone.

I think it is a desperate move by a desperate organization.

The Jets were the most dysfunctional, immature team last year and they just signed the most honest, trustworthy and hard working player in the league. Some say that is bad? They are idiots. Great move by the Jets.

Adam Schein. But he is,after all, a pencil-necked geek and an habitual masterbator.

Faneca had a good year and an average year before being "done," Holmes was a mess last year, but helped the team get to the AFC championship game in his first year, and Plaxico? Dude...he played in New York, then spent time in prison. Him being an ex-Steeler will be like someone referring to Tebow as an ex-Bronco in 10 years.

I understand your point, but you can't trash the Jets for those 3 moves. It's not like Faneca and Plax were brought in as long term (>3 years) fixes. And Tebow doesn't compare to any of the 3.

Just remember it's the media's job to create controversy. This was a slam dunk for them. We'll see how it works out on the field and in the locker room but for me, right now, it's a lot of fun. Francesa is can't miss btw. At any moment he could blow an artery and drop dead of a stroke. It's teh awesome.

where will the circus be? in the locker room or the Daily Newspapers??

Who's going to create the sh!t storm? The people inside the locker room or the folks outside with pads, pens and tape recorders?

Ha, having this same conversation at DI. It's a very good point.

Actually, a correction for the correction, Tebow was just on a conference call on NLFN and admitted he had no say in where he was traded to. It was entirely up to the Broncos who held his contract. That said he claimed to be thrilled to be going to the jets and has wanted to play for them ever since he saw Hard Knocks.

LOL Cowherd is spewing it was Tebow's choice and he wanted NY b/c he's a media whore. LOL, the flies are swarming. It's like magic.

Last night while watching ESPN, NFL Network, etc, I saw crooked smiles, raised eyebrows, anger (Schlereth), and a million jokes made at the Jets expense. If this team has any pride whatsoever they will want to destroy their opponents this year.

If they fail after all this then it may be time to blow it up starting with Tanny and Rex.

If you want to get a laugh listen to Rome in about 30 minutes.. I'm sure he's going to love this move.

Yeah. It's either one of the greatest stories ever told if they dominate next year and if not, big deal, SOJ's.

Faneca was terrible from the moment he got here. They couldn't even think about running left behind him and Brick. Though was still decent at pulling and blindsiding smaller people. His pass protection was abysmal from day one.

I guess the Jets would undo the Holmes transaction in a heartbeat if they could.

Tebow is the right play for Jets

Denver QB is a good football player, and Gang doesn't have enough of those

SportsCenter Special: Tebow Time for Jets

ESPNNewYork.com breaks down the whirlwind day that ended with the Broncos trading Tim Tebow to the Jets.Tags: New York Jets, Tim TebowSportsCenter Special: Tebow Time for Jets

NEXT VIDEO video2.png

Tim Tebow is a better football player than Drew Stanton, a better backup quarterback for the New York Jets, and so the Jets cut a smart deal with the Denver Broncos even after a long day of looking so hopelessly dumb.

They were hit with what amounted to a $2.5 million fine for getting involved in a messy squabble over Tebow's contract, or at least the part that said a trading partner would owe Denver $5 million. The bumbling billionaire, Woody Johnson, knew he had to pay up.

The Jets couldn't afford to live through another disaster of Belichickian proportions. They couldn't afford to have Tebow resign as QB of the NYJ.

Make that, backup QB of the NYJ. Either way, the Jets landed the big city's most polarizing import since, since ...

Reggie Jackson? Alex Rodriguez? Roger Clemens? Brett Favre?

It doesn't matter. This trade costing the Jets a fourth-rounder and a swap of later-round picks isn't about selling PSLs at MetLife Stadium or peddling Tebow jerseys on the Web or stealing headlines away from the Super Bowl champions down the hall.

nfl_a_tebow-20_mb_288.jpg

AP Photo/Jack DempseyTim Tebow is an upgrade over Drew Stanton at backup quarterback.

And no, this trade isn't about asking Tebow to heal a fractured locker room, either. Does the anonymous source who lobbed that one out there really believe Mark Sanchez and Santonio Holmes will remain committed BFFs because the second-string quarterback with the first-string conscience tells them to?

The idea is sillier than that "Saturday Night Live" skit, and more absurd than Mike Tannenbaum's decision to close the Denver deal without grasping the not-so-fine print in Tebow's contract.

Whatever. Ol' Woody can afford to cover the bill. Tebow will make the Jets a better team on any given Sunday or Monday night, and the fact that Antonio Cromartie kept tweeting otherwise only serves as irrefutable proof.

The Jets absolutely made the right call by sitting out the chase for Peyton Manning, and not only because Peyton would rather watch Andrew Luck win the Super Bowl in New Orleans than play for Rex Ryan in Eli Manning's backyard. At 25, Sanchez is much younger and healthier than Peyton. He's also a quarterback who won four more playoff games in his first three seasons than Peyton won in his.

Sanchez's disappointing Year 3 was nearly identical to Eli's disappointing Year 3 in 2006, the season before the Giants quarterback won his first of two Super Bowl MVPs. It doesn't mean that Sanchez is about to Joe Willie the Jets to their first title since January 1969. It only means that quitting on him in favor of a 36-year-old quarterback coming off multiple neck surgeries and a full year on the sideline didn't make much sense.

Sanchez deserves to remain the undisputed starter, whether or not you believe his contract extension was necessary. But for the Jets to advance beyond the two AFC Championship Games Sanchez has already delivered, they need better skill position players around him, and behind him.

Until Tebow was finally acquired Wednesday night, the newly signed Stanton was right behind Sanchez on the depth chart. There's no doubt the former Detroit Lion represents an upgrade on the mummified remains of Mark Brunell. There's also no doubt that Tebow, already a postseason winner, represents an upgrade on Stanton. If Sanchez goes down for an extended period of time, Tebow's Jets will stand a reasonable chance of making the playoffs, and Stanton's Jets will not.

If Sanchez stays upright, Tebow would offer a dimension off the bench that would complicate things for opposing defenses. Tony Sparano, offensive coordinator, is a founding father of the Wildcat formation, making him the right guy to get the most out of a specialist like Tebow.

That's what Tebow is -- a specialist, the world's most famous role player. There's nothing wrong with that.

Maybe he gets five or six snaps a game, tops, to do for the Jets what he did against them on that final, fateful drive in mid-November. And maybe those snaps are the difference between 8-8 and 10-6.

Tebow brings a rare physicality to his position. When Sanchez runs toward daylight, it looks like he'd rather be doing almost anything else, even booking a two-week Caribbean cruise with Holmes. Sanchez is athletic enough to escape the pocket and throw accurately on the move, but he's not a threat to do any downfield damage with his feet.

Tebow ruined the Jets' season by running wild on that 95-yard endgame drive in Denver. The home quarterback had been dreadful for most of the night, honoring Darrelle Revis' contention that he was a bore. But then Revis whiffed on a Tebow tackle, and then Eric Smith missed his target on a blitz, and then Tebow was flexing his comic book arms in the end zone before the Jets went home a complete 5-5 wreck.

On his way to the parking lot that night, Broncos owner Pat Bowlen stopped long enough to say of Tebow, "I believe he'll be a great one. Better keep him around."

The Broncos weren't listening. That same night, John Elway was practically sprinting through the locker room and away from two reporters hoping for a few comments on Tebow's magical drive. "It was great," Elway said without breaking stride. "Awesome."

And then he pushed through a door and disappeared. All along, Elway was waiting for someone like Peyton Manning to save him from the Tebow craze.

Denver's executive VP of football operations never believed his unconventional quarterback could sustain conventional long-term success, and his full-court press of Peyton proved it. Elway couldn't wait to ship Tebow far, far away from the senior Manning, potentially making him Eli's new high-profile neighbor in the Jersey marshes.

Sure, Rex Ryan is already lording over a no-ring circus, and it's easy to believe Tebow would be just another distracting dust storm for a team that leads the league in them. Sanchez would feel the presence of his backup for the first time, and Jets fans might respond to a 2-3 start with the very chant Peyton wanted no part of in Denver.

But competition brings out the best in winners, and Sanchez is a winning quarterback who could use a small dose of Tebow-Mania to reach what ballplayers are forever calling the next level.

In the end, the Jets are reducing this to a pure football decision. They want to run the ball, and Tebow can run the ball. He can play a little quarterback, maybe a little H-back, as Sparano has the system to accommodate his talents and limitations.

So forget the sales of tickets and merchandise and the forecasted faith healing in the locker room, and understand the essence of the deal. Tim Tebow is a good football player, and the 2011 Jets definitely didn't have enough of those.

Today's paper said the Jags offered $3 million ($500,00 more than us) and their 4th rounder (a better pick), but they sent him to the Jets. So, how come he went to the Jets unless someone conveyed a preference to Denver management. I think Tebow is being allowed to save face with his Florida fan base, but I heard he was not interested in the Jags because he felt the coaching staff didn't want him and it was a move made solely by ownership.
