Is It Finally 'Tebow Time' for Rex Ryan and the New York Jets?

Aaron Nagler@Aaron_NaglerNFL National Lead WriterOctober 1, 2012

When the NFL schedule was released back in April, scores of NFL fans sat down and played some variation of the "when will Tim Tebow take over for Mark Sanchez?" game. 

Week 6 was a popular pick at the time around the Bleacher Report offices, but it would shock absolutely no one if Week 5 ended up being the correct answer. 

Yes, Rex Ryan indicated in his postgame press conference yesterday that he "wasn't ready" to switch quarterbacks. But that doesn't mean he's not ready today. Or won't be tomorrow. When he goes back and watches the tape of his team getting completely dismantled by the 49ers, you have to think the temptation will be strong to shake things up, and what better way to do so than to bring Tebow off the bench?

In the video above, Josh Zerkle and I have at the Tebow debate. Josh seems to be "all-in" on what he calls "Tebow Magic." I just can't endorse putting in a fullback at quarterback. It's 2012; you need your quarterback to throw the football. No, Sanchez isn't great at that aspect of the game either. Hell, he's not even good at it, but he can throw a forward pass with consistency, something that Tebow has never been able to do at the NFL level. 

I look forward to your calm and reasoned takes in the comment section below.
