NY Daily News - Tebowmania may have captivated the NFL last season, but Tim Tebow’s new team doesn’t believe that he’s a savior. More than a dozen Jets players and members of the organization painted a sobering picture of the player who rallied the Broncos to the playoffs last season. In their eyes, he’s simply not very good. The prevailing thought in the organization is that Tebow is nothing more than a gimmick. “He’s terrible,” a defensive starter told the Daily News… Left guard Matt Slauson, who has repeatedly supported Sanchez, made it clear that the fourth-year signal caller is the Jets’ best quarterback. “It’s not even close,” Slauson said. “All the other quarterbacks know it. I have all the confidence in Mark. We don’t really have a choice.” … “Hell, no!” another starter said. “You got to keep defenses honest. You just can’t line up in the Wildcat all the time. That won’t work.” … “[Tebow]’s a winner,” said a Jets source… But most members of the Jets don’t believe that what they saw from Tebow last season is sustainable. “We can’t win running that sh–,” one player said. They think Tebow’s heroics in Denver were a mirage. “Now we’re depending on miracles?” a member of the organization said. “You can’t play that way.” “Look at some of the players he’s throwing to,” a Jets official said. “It’s garbage.” Said another Jets source: “I’ve seen better receiving corps in college than we have on our team.”

It would take a heart of stone not to laugh. Remember back at the beginning of the season when the Jets were all butthurt because they were being called a circus?  And after they put up 48 on Buffalo in Week 1 they said that motivated them because this was the year they were going to stop shooting their mouths off and trash talking and… well, acting like a circus?  Well that sound you hear is calliope music, elephants roaring and little motorized cars filled with clowns.  Now I’m sure the few remaining hardcore-loyal Jets fans are waiting and hoping that this thing will bottom out eventually.  But as someone who watched the 2011-2012 Red Sox, I’m here to tell them: Once this nonsense starts, there is no bottom. It’s one big Sarlaac pit where you will learning the meaning of pain and suffering as you are slowly digested over an entire season.  Once you start getting anonymous sources finger pointing, protecting their own and ripping people behind their backs, you can just keep free falling forever.  One anonymous source calls Tebow “a winner” (undoubtedly the owner). Another anonymous source says he’s “terrible” (could be any defensive starter, but Antonio Cromartie is a Person of Interest). Yet another tries to pump Sanchez tires by calling the receivers “garbage” (Rex Ryan?).  It’s one big, giant circular firing squad and the kind of clusterfucky mess anyone with a brain in his head could see coming when they brought in a transcendent, charismatic Christ-like figure in to back up a quarterback utterly lacking in confidence.  Everyone apparently but the guy who’s still calling him “a winner” when the rest of the organization thinks he’s garbage.  The one thing anyone said here that everyone can agree on is the guy saying they’re depending on a miracle.  They ought to make him GM.  Couldn’t happen to a better organization.  @JerryThornton1
