There were a lot of drops and a lot of bad routes, but QB Mark Sanchez is going to get a lot of the blame in New York for the Jets’ 27-10 loss to the Steelers. Tim Tebow carried the ball once for 22 yards, and handed off to Joe McKnight for 12 more in successive plays.
Steelers FS Ryan Mundy said about Tim Tebow: “They did have two decent runs while he was in there. I’m not sure why they didn’t go back to it.”
Just be careful what you wish for, Jets fans.
While I believe Tebow can improve, what we saw on Sunday was 20+ attempts and 60+ completion percentages for 8 rookie or second-year quarterbacks. Only Jake Locker (50%) and Blaine Gabbert (19 attempts) failed to meet those stats today.
Tim’s hit the 20-attempts mark 12 times including postseason, but his best completion percentage in those games was 55.2% vs. Houston (16/29, 308 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT, 89.4 QB rating; 10 rushes, 27 yards, 1 TD) December 26th, 2010.
Then again, Tebow proved himself last year to be one of the hardest players to defend. If he’s improved from last year, that could be a spark for the offense, whether he starts or just gets an extra series.
