Tim Tebow: Jets' QB Would Add Much-Needed Dimension to Dismal Passing Attack
The New York Jets' passing attack was dismal and one-dimensional last season, resulting in an average year and an offseason in which the team brought in a new quarterback.
The former Denver Broncos signal-caller creates a nightmare scenario for the defense each and every time he takes the field. His ability to scramble, extend the play and move the chains with his feet make hims one of the most difficult quarterbacks to game-plan for.
To put it simply, defenses caught on to New York's passing strategy early and often last season. The lack of a consistent running game resulted in a predictable passing attack, and one that rarely stretched the field, routinely settling for underneath dump offs and short passes.
Will Tebow start more or less than four games for the Jets in 2012?
With Tebow under center, there is always the threat of a big, game-changing play right around the corner. When he buys extra time in the pocket or behind the line of scrimmage, opposing secondaries are stretched too far and ultimately receivers break open down the field.
We saw it all last season in Denver. By the time the fourth quarter arrived, Tebow forced defenses to pick which aspect of the offense they were going to stop, and then he would beat them with the other.
Unfortunately, the same doesn't apply to Sanchez, who is limited as a rusher. With Sanchez under center, New York relies solely on handing the ball off and quick passes to underachieving wide receivers.
We saw what Tebow can do with unknown wideouts a season ago, and that's why he is the best man for the job in the Big Apple this fall. He can make an average offense special, not great, but special.
As a dual-threat player, Tebow brings an added dimension to the table. After watching the Jets' passing game flounder for the better part of 2011, it's time to spice things up in New York.
It's only a matter of time before Sanchez and the Jets offense struggles to move the ball through the air anyway. When it happens, Tebow will capitalize.
