At least Tebow is exciting to watch and has rushed for 979 career yards and a dozen touchdowns. Tebow will inspire the locker room and breathe some life into a listless football team. Plus, Tebow would create the buzz owner Woody Johnson craves. Go ahead, Rex, bench Sanchez. We've seen plenty of evidence of his unworthiness.
Tebow finds ways to win
The Jets are 3-6 and likely out of the playoff hunt, but they have seven winnable games left on their schedule. So, now is the time to make a move.
Mark Sanchez has failed to lead the Jets to wins. Say what you will about Tim Tebow, but he finds ways to put his team in a position to win.
The Jets have the Rams, Jaguars, Titans and Bills on the road and the Patriots, Cardinals and Chargers at home. They are a combined 25-38-1. Only the Patriots have a winning record and the Jets took them to overtime earlier this season.
Do nothing, and the Jets will go nowhere. Start Tebow and they have a shot to energize their roster and fan base and make a run through a weak schedule.
