Fantastic question, Nick. Thanks in large part to the fact that the New York Jets now have two incompetent quarterbacks instead of just one, the question really is who will ultimately suck less than their teammate. So here’s what we do know: the Jets recently made a commitment to Mark Sanchez giving him a five-year/$58.25 million contract, doing just about everything they could in their power to reinforce the notion that Sanchez is their guy. But then again, that’s what makes the timing of the Tebow acquisition so confusing. Forget the fact that Tim Tebow is a walking media circus and, in a place like New York that has distractions galore, you’re basically asking for it by bringing him on board. But head coach Rex Ryan has made it clear that, as far as they know, Sanchez is the Jets’ quarterback, but that they will utilize Tim Tebow in any way fashionable to help them win games.
Samson, it hurts me to say this, but in a word: Yes. I think this actually might be his year. It just comes down to math. If I think LeBron is savvy to win about three rings in his career (I’d put his over/under for three career rings if I had to put a number on it), then he’s gonna have to win one eventually and why not have it happen on the heels of a shortened season?
