Tim Tebow is the poster boy for what is right about the National Football League. In fact, he is the type of individual that parents wouldn't mind being a role-model for their children.
John Elway said as much at the Broncos press conference announcing the signing of Peyton Manning.
"If I could pick someone to marry my daughter it’d be Tim Tebow."
Tebow is also a devout Christian that seems to hold his religion on his sleeve. While there is absolutely nothing wrong with that, it is hard to imagine it would go over well with the New York Jets.
More than that, the Jets locker room environment is said to be "toxic." This is not a situation that Tebow would succeed in. He isn't going to be able to bring together 52 other grown men who are in lock-step with their own personal goals.
The The New York Daily News reported after the season ended that certain members of the Jets team lacked confidence in Mark Sanchez to lead the team to a championship. Further reports indicate that their was a break in team chemistry throughout a disappointing 2011 season.
Tebow is a leader. He proved this with the Florida Gators in college and with the Denver Broncos last season. This doesn't mean that he can come in and bring what appears to be a distant locker room back together.
Seriously, we do not exist in a world like that. Jets players would just look at the unconventional quarterback with a blank stare on their face.
More so, there would be a possibility that Tebow actually beats out Mark Sanchez in training camp. This would further fracture a split locker room.
Elway said that he wants to put Tebow in the best possible situation. If that is the case he should avoid the possibility of trading his quarterback to an environment that is the antithesis of what Tebow is and represents.
