ESPN: Unusually quiet in recent weeks, the New York Jets shattered the calm Wednesday by completing a trade for polarizing quarterback Tim Tebow. The Jets sent two picks — a fourth-rounder and sixth-rounder in 2012 — to the Denver Broncos in exchange for a seventh-round selection. Tebow, a former first-round pick, went on the trading block Monday when the Broncos secured free agent Peyton Manning, who signed a five-year, $96 million contract. Several teams expressed interest, including Tebow’s hometown Jacksonville Jaguars, but the Jets — perceived as a sleeper at the outset — pulled off the splashiest trade of the offseason. Tebow — he has three years remaining on his contract, with a base salary in 2012 of $1.1 million — will join a cast of backups behind incumbent Mark Sanchez, but his presence could ignite a quarterback controversy. Cornerback Antonio Cromartie tweeted before the trade that “we don’t need Tebow,” expressing his confidence in Sanchez and the current roster.
I’m legit sick to my stomach right now. Not because I think the Jets just became a better football team, because clearly they didn’t, but because out of all the sports figures I hate in the world, Tim Tebow ranks #1. And worse, now he’s in the NY market and we all get to listen to the media blow his virgin dick day in and day out. Seriously, the Jets have 4 QBs now, NONE of which can actually throw a football.
It’s pretty funny to see the Jets fans different reactions right now. I’m seeing people writing off Woody Johnson to people actually Tebowing. First of all, don’t start that fuckin shit again! Second, most of you who are jizzing your pants right now are the same people who were ragging on Tebow last season so make up your goddamn minds. Anyway, isn’t your fat Kool Aid shaped coach suppose to come out and guarantee a Super Bowl victory right about now?
