08:06 AM ET 05.17 | Tim Tebow was quiet Wednesday, but Tebowmania raged on in the Jets' locker room. Darrelle Revis claimed that the lefthanded quarterback's leadership is visible everywhere from the hallways to the cafeteria. Bart Scott even asked the religious signal caller to baptize him in a light-hearted scene after workouts. In other words, Tebow has fit right in with his new team. One week before the Jets begin voluntary Organized Team Activities, Revis lauded Tebow for his innate leadership and passion. "He's a born leader," Revis said Wednesday when specifically asked about Tebow. "He really is. Very few athletes have the gift that he has. He tries to lead by example all the time and he tries to be positive, which is awesome."

It would serve the Jets well if some leadership from Tebow can actually straighten up this gang of goofballs, including the HC. Still, when the undisputed team leader is on the bench, there's going to be some tension, and that's probably another reason that Denver got rid of Tebow so quickly.

Game 4. Place your bets, ladies and gentlemen, place your bets for Jet Roulette.

Tim will be fine, as long as he doesn't try to 'lead' his receivers with his arm.

And Sanchez can carry water for the elephants.

The rest of us can gush over the fact that THE JETS SUCK!

"He's a born leader," Revis said.
Dude, Revis, he's a "born-again leader." Get it straight! Don't you read the press?!

Hey Mark, why don't you call Kyle Orton and ask him how much outperforming Tebow in every practice did for his career? You're going to be on the bench by game six.

In NY you got a guy that can lead and can't throw and in Dallas you got a guy that can throw and can't lead.

If you're a christian from birth it only stands to reason you can't be "born again"
