What Week Will Tim Tebow Get His First Start for the Jets?

Josh ZerkleChief Writer IIINovember 14, 2015

Tim Tebow took the NFL by storm in the middle of last season, as his fleetness of foot and awfulness of arm helped (I said "helped") power the Denver Broncos to a playoff berth. And then the Broncos went and signed Peyton Manning to a $98 million deal, and Tebow was shipped east to New York.

Yes, the Jets acquired Tebow in a trade, and even though the Florida product only cost them a couple of draft picks, the understanding was that Tebow wouldn't simply stand idly behind incumbent quarterback Mark Sanchez. Could Tebow beat Sanchez out of a job? Not a chance. Will Sanchez struggle enough that the Jets seem more likely to give Tebow a chance at quarterback? That seems far more likely.

Also consider that the Jets' schedule is front-loaded, almost guaranteeing a rocky season start for Sanchez. Four of New York's first seven opponents made the playoffs last season, while the second half of the season features the likes of St. Louis, Jacksonville and Buffalo, making a reprisal of "Tebowmania" logistically feasible.

So if you had to pick a week for the inevitable (the second coming, if you will), which week would that be?

NFL national lead writer Michael Schottey and I offer our projections for the arrival of Tebow Time 2.0 in our latest video debate. It's gonna happen, people. Enjoy our thoughts in the video above and leave your thoughts in the comments. Thanks for watching.
