Tonight will be the game where the Jets might have to sit Sanchez out, so Tebow will probably be able to play most of this game. Here are my predictions for Tebow, and what he needs to do to help his team beat the powerful Houston Texans.
If I’m the coach of the New York Jets, I’d tell Tebow that he needs to throw moment he finds an open receiver, and not try to run the ball that much. John Fox, the Broncos coach, had told this to Tebow many times, and still Tebow hasn’t found enough success ever since he left the University of Florida. I would only tell Tebow to run if it is play action in the shotgun, and the defense doesn’t seem like they’re going to blitz. Tebow should also set up a lot of screenplays, since he has had lots of success with that play.
My expectations for Tebow (if he were to follow this advice):
19-20, 228 passing yards, 1 TD, 0 INTs, 18 carries, 108 yards, 2 TDs, 0 FUMs
My expectations for Tebow (if he wouldn’t follow this advice):
8-20, 88 passing yards, 0 TDs, 4 INTs, 20 carries, 80 yards, 1 TD, 1 FUM
I think that if Tebow wants to win, he should follow this advice.
My call: Tebow shall follow this advice given, and Tebowmania survives Arian Foster and Co. in a huge comeback in the 4th quarter. The Jets D might struggle, though Tebow knows how to roll and rally in the 4th. It will be a well-matched game. I would love to see Jets win with final second field goal 24-21.
