08:31 AM ET 07.20 | Not only is Tim Tebow a mania unto himself, but his arrival in New York continues to be intriguing on a tactical level. What is he? The Jets say he's the No. 2 quarterback and will be used in the Wildcat package. They haven't divulged any specifics, but it'll probably be closer to the read-option offense he ran in Denver than a true Wildcat, which is a direct snap to a running back. Team insiders say the plan is to use Tebow in the red zone, where they can replace Sanchez with another player/blocker to bolster the running game. ... [Mark Sanchez's] ability to block out the Tebow distraction will go a long way toward determining how the season plays out for all parties.

Watch all the first-and-fifteens as the Jets players struggle with different cadences in the red zone.

Do they really think Sanchez will get them to the red zone ?

Did anyone ever think that wouldn't be the strategy? I bet the first play we see from Tebow this season will be the goal line jump pass.

No, but maybe the defense.... maybe

So Tebow in the shotgun, takes the snap, and runs around the left end is their strategy? Sounds like money well spent.

This man is going to bring greatness to the Jets. His presence on this team will instantly erase all negative vibes. All those young women drooling over him, the rest of the Jets will have the pick of the litter

Isn't that what Fat Rex said about Mark Sanchez?

Or was that "This guy Sanchez has the best feet I've ever seen."

Re is doing a masterful job of guiding the story line. If the jets fail this year, it will be all about the QBs, not about the head coach. I's say his job is safe for another year

It depends on how much they suck. If they're below 8-8, look for the center of gravity of the western hemisphere to be somewhere other than the Meadowlands.

And no, I will not call the place Met Life Stadium. Freakin' beagle on a blimp, anyway.

Tebow will not do more than sell shirts. Just like Michael Vick and Vince Young, keep a spy on them and make them read defenses and suddenly they look pretty average....and they can throw.

July 20, 2012  01:25 PM ET

oh look at the clock boys and girls...what time is it? IT'S TEBOW TIME!!!!
