Tim Tebow is now a New York Jet! This is not good news for the Miami Dolphins. The New York Jets have improved. We can no longer claim to indisputably have the second best quarterback in the division, though it is tight between Matt Moore and Tebow. Based on last year’s numbers, Moore was considerably better than the Bills’ Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Jets’ Mark Sanchez.
Tebow is a superb athlete that brings a skill set that no other NFL quarterback has. He led the Denver Broncos to the playoffs and even beat the Pittsburgh Steelers once there. Make no mistake about it, the Broncos won because of Tebow. The Broncos are not that good and Peyton Manning will see this first hand. Their defensive statistics were helped by a ball-control offense. In contrast, high-scoring passing offenses negatively affect their team’s defensive numbers. The worst statistical defenses belonged to New England and Green Bay and they could have easily met in the Super Bowl.
Unfortunately, using these standards, the Dolphin defense is also overrated. Fair is fair.
The Jets want to play smash-mouth football and Tebow will be their guy. Sometime during the season, Tim Tebow will be starting in New York.
