Tebow and the Jets.

NFL fans are  split on Tim Tebow.  Lots of haters  suggest he is not that good,  and then there are others, like me, who think he is a diamond  ensconced in coal.  All you have to do is dig in that coal mine a little bit to find it,  and you will get your Elizabeth Taylor sized rock.   Believing in Tebow is like believing in John F. Kennedy in 1962, when he said that man will walk on the moon before the decade is done.  Ask Neil Armstrong if that actually happened in 1969 if you are not sure how that worked out.   Ask Ike Taylor of the Pittsburgh Steelers, who got burned on that 80 yard touchdown pass in the Bronco's overtime win against them last January If Tebow can play.  That was a Precision pass, and a textbook stiff arm by Demaryius Thomas.  It was also the equivalent of sending Monkeys into space.   It was just a glimpse.
You may have gotten fat and out of shape in your life, but then if you lose the weight, or, as a comparison,  believe in Tebow,  it's like not only losing it all,  but also  digging in the back of your closet to find those old jeans that you used to wear,  except  when you try them on again, you find a hundred dollar bill in the pocket.  Tebow is that Hundy.  You just have to believe. Tebow will provide that extra reward,  that incredible scramble,  that impossible finish, that Hundred dollar bill in the forgotten pair of jeans.  
There is no doubt in my mind that Tebow is a better QB than Sanchez,  and if the Jets coaching staff is open  minded enough to bring him in,  they are probably open minded enough to see the truth when it presents itself.  They may sit there for awhile and only see the coal.  Their 1962 selves,  may not believe that man will walk on the moon someday, but eventually, I am sure they will see the monkeys orbiting the earth and begin to wonder if they can fit into those pants that are in the back of their closet.

Metaphors inside of metaphors, nice!! Still hate the damn Jets. Want to see Tebow traded again to anyone but them.
