Default Boomer Esiason says cut Tim Tebow .... Now

"If I was the Jets you want to know what I would do? I would cut Tim Tebow. I really would" Boomer Esiason said.


The non-battle battle between Tim Tebow and Mark Sanchez for snaps as Jets quarterback remains, annoyingly, at the epicenter of NFL training camp. And it's not going to go away, either.

Unless, of course, the Jets take the advice of CBS' Boomer Esiason, speaking on WFAN's "Boomer and Carton Show" Monday morning, and "cut Tim Tebow."

"If I was the Jets you want to know what I would do? I would cut Tim Tebow. I really would" Esiason said. "I'm telling you right now I would, and I'll tell you why I would: it's just not in any way, shape or form benefiting this team. I just don't see how it benefits this team.

"I just think this whole thing -- at least from my perspective right now in relation to who Mark Sanchez is, your starting quarterback -- is a major mistake."

It's a bold statement from Boomer, but not one likely to ever morph into a realistic situation. Whether or not Tebow can throw (and Boomer points out he can't) is irrelevant to what Rex Ryan and Tony Sparano want to do on offense. They plan to utilize him in the Wildcat offense and ostensibly make him a dangerous red-zone threat. Plus, if Sanchez struggles, Tebow presents a somewhat viable alternative.

Boomer's right actually. I see this whole thing going over really, really bad for Rex Ryan.

TT needs to switch from QB to FB, TE, special teams......anything that doesn't require QB skills.

Elway knew all along that the Jets could not survive Tim Tebow. In a genius move on Elway's part he traded TT to the Jets knowing they would have to cut him and we grab him off wavers and steal a draft pick from the Jets.

Where's the Tebow love ........ I looking forward to the next chapter in the Tebow book and I don't think it will be him getting cut from the team. Boomer is a obnoxious douchebag.

Esiason is a moron. At the very least Tebow provides substantial red zone and goal line benefits to their team. The data bears it out. If he doesn't see anything that Tim adds he should feel free to make SN appointment at lenscrafters

In before "circus and rabid fan" are thrown around.

You know I think this could work in New York. I see them having a pretty good year and Tebow being a vaulable part of what happens there.

B U T it all depends on Sanchez. If he can handle the pressure and plays like he is capable of this team could finish 10-6/11-5. But if he has a poor season and the Tebow fanatics have reason to boo then this team could explode. It will be fun to watch either way.

He shouldn't be cut. His size, work ethic and athleticism would allow him excel as an H-back, wildcat QB, or even a power RB in certain packages. He could be quite effective as a 10-12 play specialty guy/decoy. The question is whether or not he and the circus will eventually accept that role.

Jets had the best Red Zone conversion % last year.

Sanchez had as many red zone rushing TDs as Tebow.

It is not Tebow that is the problem it is the Tebow circus that is the problem. We all saw how Orton melted under the pressure of chants and billboards.

I second or third the notion of Boomer as moron. He hated on Tebow all last year, even when he took us to the playoffs and beyond.

From a football perspective, Sparano has always been a fan of the Wildcat formation and doesn't mind looking at non-standard strategies for winning games. Sparano probably also watched the film of what we (the Tebow-Broncos) did to the Pats in the first half of our regular season game. Wasn't that the worst performance of any Belichik rushing defense ever (at least for one half)? Weapons like that could help the Jets win the AFC East if they can keep the media out of their locker room.

So glad we don't have to deal with this... I'm glad for what tebow gave us last year... however it's nice to know who our qb is from day one this year!

Do you really truly think for an instant that Elway & Fox would grab Tebow off waivers, Baja? I think they've had enough of his publicity; were relieved to ship out said publicity headaches to another team... and would be the last ones to express interest.

From a PR standpoint, the Jest cannot cut Tebow... they perhaps could if they had a "clearly-superior" option available on the roster, but Sanchez is not that guy. They've made their bed and have to lie in it at least for the 2012 season, I think.

Orton lacking balls is because of the Tebow circus?

I wonder if Fox or Elway actually approached him, with that idea. If he insisted on being a QB, there was nothing we could have done to keep him...
