Although it's still not clear if Tebow will ever be a starter in New York—in fact, it's pretty doubtful—his presence on the depth chart is enough to make Mark Sanchez step his game up.
If he does not, Tim Tebow would love the opportunity to lead this team.
We will never know if Tebow can lead Gang Green into battle unless coach Rex Ryan gives him the chance, and that chance might be slowly creeping up on us.
Just think about this moment for a second.
When Tebow comes in for a Wildcat package, nine-out-of-ten times other teams are anticipating the run. Perhaps allowing the quarterback to throw a pass would keep the defense on their heels and force them to respect the pass.
Don't get me wrong, I stand by Sanchez as New York's guy, but having the ability to work Tebow into the plays would throw opposing teams off and would benefit the Jets' offense.
The problem that Gang Green has encountered this season has nothing to do with preventing opponents from putting up points...it's getting their offense on the scoreboard, and Tim Tebow could help the cause there.
