Slauson on Tebow: “That option is not an option”
With all the talk about when/if the Jets will switch from quarterback Mark Sanchez to quarterback Tim Tebow, a fairly important constituency has been overlooked.
The other players on the team.
One of them, guard Matt Slauson, says that the idea of a change in quarterbacks and the offensive overhaul resulting from it won’t work.
“That isn’t our offense,” Slauson said, per Bob Glauber of Newsday. “I have no idea what we’d have to do. But to us in this room, that option is not an option.”
We're heeding ESPN's advice--you can't talk enough about Tebow. This is especially true when it's not your city or your beloved team being paraded on the national stage and used as a lightning rod for America's culture war. As Malcom X might have said: "We didn't land on Tim Tebow. Tim Tebow landed on us."
And we're glad he did. Tebow is fond of saying that God has a plan. If God's plan for the Broncos meant enduring the McDaniels/Tebow era in order to pave the way for the Elway/Manning era, then hallelujah---better expressed by John McClane in the movie Die Hard: Yippee-ki-yay, Mother$#%@er!
