It took a week, but the Jets finally provided a glimpse of how they plan to use Tebow this season. Working with the second-team offense, Tebow dominated a goal-line drill. In a four-play sequence, he ran for two touchdowns and tossed for another on a play-action bootleg. Reported by ESPN.com
Fantasy Football Diehards Line:
The Jets unveiled a Wildcat-like package, with Tebow taking a direct snap out of shotgun and running 2 yards up the middle for a touchdown. Moments before the drill, HC Rex Ryan yelled to the defense that Tebow was "live" on running plays. Until Thursday, the Jets had used Tebow only in the conventional offense and as the personal protector on the punt team. Now there is talk of increased use of Tebow for two-point conversions. ... Meanwhile, Mark Sanchez told reporters after practice that he's fine with Tebow taking over at the goal line. "We got to get it in the end zone. I don't care," Sanchez said. "Coach [Tony] Sparano's going to be the judge there on what exactly he wants. But if that's what he wants and if that's what puts it in the end zone, fine. We'll drive it 99 yards and he can run it in. It doesn't matter." It doesn't matter? Really? I guess that's why the President of the United States chimed in
on the topic this morning. Seriously. Asked about the Sanchez-Tebow dynamic, President Barack Obama offered a qualified endorsement of Sanchez. "Sanchez is not Tom Brady yet, but he led them to the playoffs two years in a row," the Commander in Chief said. "I think Tim Tebow seems to be a wonderful young man, and he's got just a great winning attitude. He really steps up when things count. ... But there's going to be a lot of tension in that situation, so it'll be pretty interesting to see how it plays itself out."
