From the New York Daily News:
Tim Tebow’s love of New York has nothing to do with pastrami and rye, or Times Square, or even Madison Ave.: The real reason Tebow loves New York is because he feels he can beat out Mark Sanchez and become the Jets’ starting quarterback.
Timsanity — and an explosive quarterback controversy — starts now.
As the Times points out, there are a lot of people who really think Tebow could be good for the Jets—especially eternal optimist Yahoo Sports’ Dan Wetzel, who writes: “A change-of-pace offensive package, and a 6-4, 240-pound bull to run it, shakes up the Jets offense and makes it easier for Sanchez to operate. It also should help put points on the board.” But it’s the small-but-vocal evangelical community that seems most excited about Tebow’s arrival: “I think there’s going to be a lot of kids in public school Tebowing, I think Tebow-mania will probably sweep New York City. I think it will make Evangelical Christianity more popular among the young people—unless the guy bombs out,” Brooklyn-based Pastor Joseph Mattera told Buzzfeed.
Jets tell Tebow to live in N.J. to avoid temptations of NYC?! $100 says he gets a 150 passer rating before he gets within 50 feet of a club.
