Tim Tebow was brought to the New York Jets with a lot of fanfare, but in his first pre-season game there was nothing real super about his performance. He did run around a little, and threw one interception on a 5 for 9 night. Tebow is a good scrambler, but you cannot tell much from a pre-season game. Tebow is expected to excite New York and he may before it’s all said and done.
Last night though it was an average performance for a pre-season game.
People expect great things from him no matter if it is a pre-season game or regular season. He does put people in the seats and that is a good thing for football. When the season starts though he will be on the bench getting in on special plays designed for him. Tebow may get his chance in New York, but only if the starting quarterback gets hurt. Tebow is still a work in progress and I think the New York Jets understand this when they got him. For his legion of fans they want to see him no matter how good or bad he plays.
