New York Jets: 3 Bold Predictions for Tim Tebow's First Season
His sub-par quarterback performance still led to having the most jersey sales, as well as earning a playoff victory against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Tebow led the Broncos to a six game win streak before losing the final three regular season games. However, due to the weak status of the AFC West division last season, the Broncos made the playoffs with an 8-8 record.
Here is a list of three bold predictions for "gang green" during Tim Tebow's first season
Mark Sanchez Will Lose His Starting Position

Playing in front of New York and New Jersey fans can become quite nerve racking.
They can love you one day and hate you the next. This doesn't bode well for current starting quarterback Mark Sanchez.
Sanchez threw a career high 26 touchdowns last season but threw five more interceptions than the previous year.
As soon as Sanchez throws his first pick for six, Met Life Stadium is going to erupt with "We want Tebow" chants, which will honestly probably begin during the first game of the season.
The pressure that Tebow brings to Mark Sanchez certainly doesn't help. Tebow took the starting role in Denver, and he will take the starting role in New York.
Tebow Will Flourish in the Wildcat

The Jets also added a new face to the coaching staff during the offseason.
After the Miami Dolphins had another dismal year, the Dolphins fired head coach Tony Sparano midseason.
The Jets picked up the former head coach and hired him as their offensive coordinator.
Tony Sparano led the wildcat epidemic in the NFL, leaving the New England defense dumbfounded after Sparano unleashed his Wildcat formation a few seasons ago. Multiple teams began to develop their own form of the wildcat offense.
This has Tim Tebow written all over it. Tebow was successful because of his multiple athletic threats, including being able to flee outside of the pocket and break off for a 30 yard touchdown.
With Sparano as offensive coordinator, the Jets will have a whole wildcat package where Tebow will thrive in his first season in a new uniform.
AFC East Title

Playing in the AFC East, the Jets will compete against the New England Patriots, Buffalo Bills and the Miami Dolphins.
The Bills shocked the free agency world when they signed defensive end and linebacker Mario Williams to a six year contract.
The Jets have six games this season against their AFC East competition. However, with a stout defense and potentially potent offense with Tebow in the wildcat, the Jets have a solid chance at taking home the AFC East title.
