The Hero Inside

557952_1204953_b

If you were to walk down the street many new faces would pass on by. Most of the faces you may never see again, but inside each and every one of them is the ability of choice.

Some people spend their time on earth for good while others use it for evil, but inside everyone is the ability to be a hero.

A hero is usually the person who makes it to the front page of the newspaper and magazine, but many of those mainstream heroes do good deeds just noticed and gain popularity and attention.

Don’t get me wrong, many of them deserve the spotlight for their heroic deeds, but is the spotlight necessary?

I believe that the true heroic deeds are the ones that go unnoticed.

A simple helping hand with a small task or a smile to a stranger can make a world of difference. Just offering to help another or being polite can really shed some good in this world.

So next time your down or upset just think about the world around you. A world constantly trying to stay a float everyday without another killing or crime.

Just try to go out and do your own small part because you can be a hero even if it’s for a minute and who cares if the world isn’t watching.

Next time if the opportunity presents itself:

  • Go outside of your comfort zone
  • Make a difference
  • Take a chance

And help someone else because it may save make a difference in their life along with your own

A Road Already Traveled

Imagine if someone gave you a map of your life with every choice you are going to make with an X at the end. Would you take the map or just throw it away?

Having this map would be pretty helpful. Now, you would know what mistakes your were going to make before you actually made them. If you had a tough decision to make and you ended up making the wrong choice, you could change it because you now know the outcome.

A downside to this idea is that, where is the excitement?

Some people live for the unexpected.

They like living on the edge and not knowing what lies ahead of them.

I think that knowing your destination takes away from the meaning of life. It takes away from our ability to make choices and chose our own paths. Sure, some would breathe a sigh of relief knowing if their hard work is going to pay off, but not knowing if your going to reach your goal is what keeps us going.

Me personally, I enjoy not knowing the unknown. Waking up and not expecting what may or may not happen that day. I think it all depends on the person that you are.

There are some that like taking chances, while others who like knowing what is going to happen next.

Some skip to the end of a movie just to watch the ending while others enjoy watching the plot and story unfold in front of them.

Here is another tough choice. What if you found out the path you were in was a one that had a nightmare ending. Maybe being in the wrong place at the wrong time and something bad happening to you. This is when knowing the future would be very helpful and may save you from a nightmare ending and turn it into something a lot more rewarding.

No need for a map when you already know your destination.

When that time comes and you find that so-called treasure map with your life planned out, do you dare to look?

I think I would just take that map of my life and put it back in the treasure box that it came in and live life without it.

Stay True to You

Money, looks and power. If you have any of these three, you are ahead of the game, well according to our society. We get so consumed in trying to get to the top and impressing others, we forget to take a stop and think. We forget to take a second and worry about the perception of ourselves instead of the perception of how others view us.

Preppy, punk, jock, nerd, emo are all common stereotypes that people fall into. It is done so easily too, if you go outside wearing nothing but black there are sure to be whispers about your appearance. I have seen it and I live it everyday.

Goldfish are so boring. Be a Bluefish

Appearance and style is such an important part of today’s society, we forget to remember that there is a person behind those clothes. There is a person with emotions, feeling and a heart. If someone wants to wear all black, all pink or yellow or whatever, they have the right to do so.

I disagree with a lot about clothing and fashion, but one thing it does is that it gives the ability to express yourself.

When expressing yourself, remember to act, dress and express yourself the way that YOU want to. Don’t do it because of attention, don’t do it because it will make you popular do it because it is truly you.

Don’t try to mimic what you see on television and on magazines, start your own trend and be your own person. Trends are started just for the sake of popularity. If you’re different, but you are being yourself it does not matter what anyone in the world thinks. As long as you are expressing yourself and are happy, who cares?

Be an individual, express yourself, be you.

Hardest Sport to Play?

Sitting at home and yelling at athletes on television is a hobby for some.

Fans get outraged at these over paid athletes. They think that they should perform at their highest level every time they go out and play a sport. They yell and curse at the television, whenever an athlete strikes out or misses a big shot in a game. Going out and performing in front of millions of fans, in the stands, and on national television is not as easy as it looks.

An athlete is someone who posses a skill or a talent that makes them capable of playing a sport. Every athlete is different, some are good at being strong, others are good at being smart. Each game requires a different skill set for an athlete to succeed at that particular sport.

Some sports, people are just born to play.

If you were born 7-foot, can catch a ball and put it into a hoop, then you are destined to play basketball. If you were born 5-foot, 110 lbs you could make the perfect jockey.

There is one sport though that doesn’t require any height or weight requirement. This game takes both strength and smarts. It is one of the most watched sports today but doesn’t get the credibility of a sport such as football, baseball or soccer.

I am talking about the most difficult sport to play, that requires the greatest skill set. That sport is golf.

Take your golf club, get your tiny little golf ball and hit it into a hole that is 4.25 inches. Did I mention that you only have a certain number of tries to do this and that the location of the hole is anywhere between 100 and 600 feet away?

I think that golf is the hardest sport to play. With sports such as football and basketball, you can practice and build up muscle and strength to become better. Golf is a sport that requires a unique skill set. People of all ages can play golf, unlike any other sport. There have been golfers the age of forty who have won the Masters. In sports like baseball and basketball you can define the odds of age and play, but you are at a greater disadvantage.

Golf is similar to wine, as you get older you get better.

Golfers become smarter and learn how to angle their shots and judge what golf clubs to use on different shots. It is not easy judging a shot with gusty winds trying to alter the direction of your shot.

Each sport requires a particular talent to succeed. I am not attempting to say that tennis or soccer is easy to play. Sports like boxing and football take a lot out of you. Those are sports of determination and heart. Who can outlast the other opponent to the end?

img_sports-cast
There are individual positions that are tough to play. Such as a pitcher or a quarterback. Each of these posts requires smarts and skill. It is not easy trying to read a defense and throw a perfect pass or throw a baseball in an exact location on the edge of the plate.

The difference between golf and those awkward positions are that you can overcome being a quarterback or pitcher with other talents. What I mean by that is: if you can’t throw a perfect pass, you can succeed in other ways.

Running for a first down by yourself or throwing quick passes to your star receiver, can take the pressure off of you. A pitcher throwing 100 miles per hour can intimidate any batter.

As a golfer, you are out there on your own. You get help from your caddy, but it is you against the wind and the course. There is no alternative way out you can use to help get out of a bunker or a forest. Reading the wind and choosing the best club is your only way out.

Playing any sport is difficult and requires a ton of skill, of course.

I’m just saying the next time you turn on the television, just think about how hard it is actual to play the game of golf. Reflect on the unique skill set it requires to hit a golf ball into a hole that is 4.25 inches big and over 500 feet away.

2012 NFL Draft Grades: Round 1

I am going to give my grades for the first round of the 2012 NFL draft! Let’s go!

#1 Colts select: Andrew Luck, QB, Stanford  Grade: A+   This is an easy pick for the Colts here. When you give away Peyton Manning you need to make sure you have someone who can fill his shoes. This kid has the potential to do that.

#2 Redskins select: Robert Griffin III, QB, Baylor Grade: A  RG3 better be as advertised. He has the skill and talent to be a star. The Redskins gave up a lot to get this pick. But if you think RG3 is a future star you give up whatever it takes to get him.

#3 Browns select: Trent Richardson, RB, Alabama Grade: B+  The Browns got exactly what they needed here. They needed a play-maker on offensive. They gave up some late picks to get here, but Richardson has Adrian Peterson like potential that you can’t pass up on. The Browns have a lot of needs that they still need to address later in the draft.

#4 Vikings select: Matt Kalil, OT, Southern California Grade: A  Ponder needed protection from his O-line and the Vikings take the best offensive linemen in the country. Helps Ponder and also helps Adrian Peterson. Solid pick here.

#5 Jaguars select: Justin Blackmon, WR, Oklahoma State Grade: A  The Jaguars move up to take a big time WR. They have had trouble through the air for a number of years. Blackmon will open up the pass game, as well as the run and draw some attention from MJD.

#6 Cowboys select: Morris Claiborne, CB, LSU Grade: A  The Cowboys needed secondary help and they really get it here. I am surprised that Claiborne fell this far. He has the skill set to be a top CB in the NFL. Pair him with Carr the Boys’ off-season pick up and now Rob Ryan can blitz as often and as much as he wants to.

#7 Buccaneers select: Mark Barron, SS, Alabama Grade: B+ Many thought that Barron was going to be picked by the Cowboys, but Claiborne slipped to them. As a result the Bucs’ get the best safety on the board, a need that they needed to fill.

#8 Dolphins select: Ryan Tannehill, QB, Texas A&M Grade: C+   The Dolphins miss out on Peyton Manning and Matt Flynn and have to settle with Tannehill. I think this is a huge risk this early in the draft, but Tannehill has the talent to be good.

#9 Panthers select: Luke Kuechly, ILB, Boston College Grade: A  Kuechly is a tackle machine. Pair that with Jon Beason who is returning off injury and you have a dangerous core of linebackers. Great solid pick, you know what you are going to get with Kuechly. He draws many Brian Urlacher comparisons.

#10 Bills select: Stephon Gilmore, CB, South Carolina Grade: B The Bills had a lot of needs to fill and getting the second best corner in the draft fills one of their needs. They have Mario Williams on the inside and Gilmore on the outside balancing out their defensive attack.

#11 Chiefs select: Dontari Poe, DT, Memphis Grade: C  Poe is a very risky pick for the Chiefs here. The last big man they took Glen Dorsey still has not met his potential. Poe could follow suit of Dorsey. He is big and quick and has the talent, but tends to be too inconstant even against lower talented college teams in the division.

#12 Eagles select: Fletcher Cox, DT, Mississippi State Grade: B- The Eagles move up to grab Cox. He is fills a need for them in the middle and has covers the field from end to end. He is a good big body on the front line that the Eagles needed.

#13 Cardinals select: Michael Floyd, WR, Notre Dame Grade: B+ He is faster than Blackmon and has the same big play ability as him. His problems come off the field and staying out of trouble. The talent is there to become a great wide-out opposite Larry Fitzgerald. Opposing teams better fear this 1-2 combo.

#14 Rams select: Michael Brockers, DT, LSU Grade: B- The Rams needed help on their D-Line and they address it here. Brockers has the talent, but still has not reached his full potential. He is a pick that fills a need.

#15 Seahawks select: Bruce Irvin, OLB, West Virginia Grade: D  This was the most surprising pick of the draft here. They take a 2nd or 3rd round talent here. Irvin is a speedy pass rusher, but that is about all he is. With a lot of other talented pass rushers on the board this pick is a surprise here.

#16 Jets select: Quinton Coples, DE, North Carolina Grade: B  The Jets needed help on the D-Line and that is what they got. Coples has the size, strength and talent to be great. He is not very consistent and does not have a high motor. Rex Ryan is hoping that he could help Coples reach his full potential and not turn into another Vernon Gholston.

#17 Bengals select: Dre Kirkpatrick, CB, Alabama Grade: B  Kirkpatrick has the tools to be a solid corner. He was once considered a top talent, but his stock dropped as the draft approached. Pair him with Leon Hall and that helps the Bengals secondary where they needed a lot of help.

#18 Chargers select: Melvin Ingram, OLB, South Carolina Grade: B  Ingram was projected to be in the top 10 and the Chargers get good value here. Some question his size and arm length, but Ingram plays with a high motor and can play almost any position on the field.

#19 Bears select: Shea McClellin, OLB, Boise State Grade: B–  The Bears grab a solid linebacker here. They would’ve went DE to add another dynamic pass pusher along side Julius Pepper, but they take the LB. Either way the Bears needed help on defense and they get it.

#20 Titans select: Kendall Wright, WR, Baylor Grade: B  Wright gives the Titans the big play receiver that they need. They have a young QB who now has two young WR’s to throw to in Kenny Britt and Kendall Wright. Wright is a home run type receiver that adds another piece to the Titans offense.

#21 Patriots select: Chandler Jones, DE, Syracuse Grade: A-   The Patriots will take all of the help on defense that they can get. Jones has top 10 type talent and the Patriots trade up to get him here. He is strong and has good vision that will help him at the next level.

#22 Browns select: Brandon Weeden, QB, Oklahoma State Grade: C+  The 28-year-old has a skill set to be a good NFL QB in the league. He beat RG3 and Luck head to head, but you have to think that his age only gives him about 5-7 years in the league. Take that plus he has to win the QB job and has to produce right away.

#23 Lions select: Riley Reiff, OT, Iowa Grade: A  One of the top OL in the draft. He was a projected top 15 pick and the Lions get him here at #23 pick. He fills a much-needed for the Lions and can give Mathew Stafford some time to breathe.

#24 Steelers select: David DeCastro, OG, Stanford Grade: A  When it comes to drafting linemen the Steelers are the best. They take the former lineman for Andrew Luck here. The Steelers always build their teams from the inside out and this pick proves just that.

#25 Patriots select: Dont´a Hightower, ILB, Alabama Grade: C+  The Patriots traded up once again to take Hightower. He really doesn’t have a set position and could be undersized depending where he would lineup on defense. He still has the skill set to produce at the next level.

#26 Texans select: Whitney Mercilus, DE, Illinois Grade: C+  Mercilus had a big 2011 season that really raised his draft stock. He has the athletics and the high motor, but still lacks the technique and finesse you want in a DE.

#27 Bengals select: Kevin Zeitler, OG, Wisconsin Grade: B  The Bengals get some help on the offensive line here. Zeitler is a tough, player between the trenches. He has the work ethic and is good against both the run and the pass.

#28 Packers select: Nick Perry, DE, Southern California Grade: C+  Perry is undersized for his position and sometimes get lost among larger tackles. That being said he still is fast and has the quickness you would want in a DE. There were some better option still on the board such as Courtney Upshaw.

#29 Vikings select: Harrison Smith, SS, Notre Dame Grade: B+  The Vikings get the second best SS in the draft. A big hitter with a big frame. They need a lot of help in the secondary and this was a good pick to fill the void. Smith was the captain on Notre Dame and the Vikings need a captain to step up in their defense.

#30 49ers select: A.J. Jenkins, WR, Illinois Grade: B–  Jenkins has the speed to open up the 49ers offense. He gives the opposing defensive something to worry about other than Frank Gore. Any wide receiver would be an upgrade over what they have now.

#31 Buccaneers select: Doug Martin, RB, Boise State Grade: B+  Martin is a good pick and good compliment to Legarrett Blount. He is tough between the tackles and has the explosivness to still get to the next level. I think this is the 2nd of two solid picks for the Buccaneers in this draft.

#32 Giants select: David Wilson, RB, Virginia Tech Grade: B  With Brandon Jacobs now with the 49ers the Giants took no time to replace him. They would’ve went many different ways with this pick such as an a linebacker or offensive linemen, but the Giants get another home run hitter to go with Ahmad Bradshaw.

2016 update: I regret my #2, #3 and #15 grades, but the rest aren’t too bad.

Still America’s Pastime?

As the years come and go things change. Some for the better and some for the worst. When it comes to sports, players and coaches always come and go. One thing that will never change is the past.

It has always been said that baseball is America’s pastime. The word pastime is a word that means, doing something fun, amusing and it usually something that is done as a hobby.

Many people like to argue that football is the new pastime of America. I will tell you that baseball is still America’s pastime today and it will always be Americas pastime even in the future. Football has only been around about 50 years and is recently becoming popular in the United States.

Baseball is a sport that has been around for more than 100 years and was around before people even knew what a football was or who Peyton Manning is.

There are many reasons why baseball will never be replaced as America’s pastime. The first one is because of the atmosphere of coming to a ball game. When you come to a baseball park you are there to watch a sport that is like a piece of art. The movement and the flow of the game from inning to inning is nothing compared to any other sport. There is no time limit or clock to stop a  baseball game, it can go on for as long as it takes someone to win.

There is nothing better than going to the ball park with your family or friends during a sunny, breezy afternoon. When you attend a football game it is in the cold, frigid days of the winter.

No one wants to sit outside in the cold, snowing weather to watch a game. Baseball starts right when Spring does and it welcomes the warm weather and fans to the ball park.

The football season is only 16 games long. While a baseball season is 162 games. Let’s say your favorite football team starts off the season 0-7, you know right then and there it will almost be impossible for your team to make the playoffs. All of that money you spent on season tickets are all to waste. When your favorite baseball team starts off 0-7 they will eventually turn their bad luck around.

There is no way a team can lose 162 games, well we haven’t seen one yet.  Football tickets are far too overpriced as a result of a 16 game schedule. You can arrive at a baseball game the day of the game and purchase ticket that aren’t too expensive.

Many argue that football is the more exciting sport to watch. I may have to agree with that point, but football is on the same lines of UFC and boxing. Instead of two people fighting it is two teams going back and forth trying to tackle and stop the other team. Baseball is a much more relaxing, family welcoming type of game.

When you come to a ball park on a summer night you can sit back, relax and even read the newspaper as you watch the game. Football doesn’t have that same welcoming feel as baseball does when you arrive to the stadium.

Finally, baseball is a much harder game to play than football. Argue this as you may, but trying to hit an 95 mph baseball coming right at you is nearly impossible, not to mention pitches that are sliders and curve balls that move around and make it even harder to hit. Being able to throw and locate a pitch is just as hard as hitting. In football there are certain positions that are so easy to play.

It really doesn’t take much talent to be an offensive line man or even a punter. Baseball is a game of finesse and overall skill. These players have to play almost every day during the baseball season, that is no easy task. Football players, granted it is a far more physical sport, have a week off during each game.

It’s hard for a sport to claim that they are the new pastime of America. I don’t think any sport will ever claim that spot. Football maybe the most popular in America now, due to ratings. That still doesn’t make it a America’s pastime. Baseball is and will always remain America’s pastime.

Top 4 – Sports Uniforms

When you play a sport it has to be done in style, it is a fact.

After that game winning shot or walk off home run for the win, it better be done looking good. I’m going to take a look at the best looking uniforms in sports today!

ImageNFL – Carolina Panthers

Now that the Panthers finally have a good QB under center, it is time that someone shows their jerseys some respect. The blue and the black combo is pretty awesome. You pair that with a pretty mean looking panther for the logo and I think it looks pretty fresh. I like the complimentary silver touch to it as well.

Image

NHL – Anaheim Ducks

These aren’t the Mighty Ducks from the movie. The Anaheim Ducks go with the black and gold colors. I think anything black and gold, has that swagger to it. That feel like, don’t mess with the ducks or else. I do love the old school white and purple Mighty Ducks uniforms from the movie too. Goldberg could not be messed with in the net rocking the purple.

 Image

NBA – New York Knicks

These jerseys are classics dating back to the Walt Frazier days. When you see the blue and orange you know that you are facing the Knicks. I just think the history behind the team and colors really make these jerseys what they are. There has been some altercations from the original logo and lettering, but these Knick jerseys are definitely classics.

Image

MLB – Atlanta Braves

The blue, the red and the cool script A for the logo just go together perfect. I like the Braves jerseys because they are simple and not overly flashy. Compared to some of the other overly colorful jerseys in the league, like the Miami Marlins for example. The Braves manage to keep that fresh, clean look.

Greatest Rivalry in Sports History?

Image

Two men with the same dream.

Hollywood could not have written a better script for the rivalry between Larry Bird and Magic Johnson. It really was a scene straight out of an action movie, when Bird and Magic step on the court at the same time. Not only was it entertainment for the fans, but at the same time it really put the NBA back on the map.

In a time where the NBA was at its low point in its history, this rivalry between Bird and Magic changed the NBA forever.

The rivalry started back in college, before they even had a chance to face in the NBA. Both Bird and Magic were huge prospects coming out of college. They finally got to go head to get for the National Championship in college. Magic and Michigan State got the best of Bird and Indiana in that game. Ever since that lose, Bird had a desire to get back at Magic and get revenge.

What makes this rivalry what it is has to be the two contrasting personalities between Bird and Magic. Bird was the country kid from Indiana; Magic was the Hollywood star.

He took on the Hollywood star persona right when he was drafted by the Lakers. When Bird played he did it by the books, he was your traditional do it by the rules while staying professional on and off the court. When Magic played he was flashy, sure he wanted to win like everyone else, but he was an entertainer and wanted to put on a show for the fans.

The rivalry reached a pinnacle when the Lakers and the Celtics faced off for the first time in the 1984 championship. The Celtics and Bird finally beat Magic and the Lakers. That was only the beginning. The Lakers beat the Celtics the following year and again in 1987 giving the Magic a 3-1 edge in their head to head match ups.

The funny thing about this rivalry between Bird and Magic on the court is that they were good friends off the court. Magic thought that they could remain friends on the court, but Bird saw Magic as a rival just like every other player that he had versed. Bird and Magic would shoot commercials together and even had a shoe and apparel line. Each shoe had different colors and fans would buy the colors for the player that they supported. It really took the NBA and put it in the mainstream, dividing fans and people making them chose a side of either Magic or bird.

All of a sudden things changed though, out of nowhere Magic was diagnosed with HIV and doctors told him that he wasn’t allowed to play basketball anymore. That really hit Magic hard; he realized for the first time in his life how much basketball really meant to him.

Bird was also affected by this as well. He took this news really hard. It was the first time, both of them realized how lucky they really are to be playing basketball because life can hit you hard and you’re not grateful for something you have until it’s gone.

Bird vs. Magic revolutionized not only the NBA, but all of sports. It showed two men with a rivalry on the court, but a strong friendship and respect off the court.

When it comes to the list of the greatest rivalries in sports, it’s hard not to put Bird and Magic at the top.

Best Fantasy Sport to Play?

Image

I know how it feels when your favorite sports team is constantly losing. It’s not fun and very frustrating. Sitting there yelling at the television, saying that everyone on the team should be fired is an everyday occurrence.

Every sport fan out there thinks that they can run a team better than the management  in place now. Well, actually, now you can run your own team.

In the mid 1990’s fantasy sports were created and every sports fan dream came true. Fans were now able to draft players from the NFL, NBA, NHL, NCAA, NASCAR, and even golf. Fans are now able to run a team however they wish. They could set line-ups, drop players, pick up new ones and execute trades.

But which fantasy sport is the top of the bunch?

The most popular fantasy sport is football. Fantasy football is by far the easiest one to play.

All you need to do is set your lineup once a week and your team is set. For me, fantasy football is the most frustrating. You might have the most dominant team on paper, but your opponent can get lucky for that week and beat you. Trust me, you will never live it down either, especially if you’re in a league with your close friends, or people at work.

The next two popular fantasy sports after fantasy football, are fantasy hockey and fantasy baseball.

These two are pretty similar.

Fantasy baseball and fantasy hockey  take a lot more of your time, especially if you are in a league where you need to set your lineups daily.

Instead of one game, a weekend, and a winner you have a full week of games (almost everyday). Now, in case your team has a slow start, they can make up for it later in the week. The roster in fantasy hockey and fantasy baseball is a lot deeper, and there are a lot more spots to fill on your team. Managers really need to know all of the players and the potential breakouts who could help their team.

Well then… who is the (fantasy) winner?

For the busy, casual sports fan I would say fantasy football is your choice. Don’t get me wrong, fantasy football is pretty intense because every game matters and that one lose can hurt your season.

I think that the best fantasy sport has to go to both baseball and hockey. Obviously, if your only a hockey fan or only a baseball fan, and not both, then you have your own personal winner.

So next time your yelling at your computer screen or phone, and your fantasy team is losing, the only one you can blame is… yourself.

Tebow Time

Image

(2016 update: Tim Tebow never got his chance at QB with the Jets; he is still the man).

It is Tebow time.

When the Jets were about to have an under the radar off-season for the first time in forever. They still somehow manage to land the biggest name in, well if not in football, but in all of the sports.

The Jets acquired Tim Tebow for a 4th and 6th round pick in the 2012 NFL draft. A low-risk move for a former playoff quarterback and a proven winner.

So what does this all mean, was it a good trade or was it a trade just to stir up some headlines.

Let’s look at it like this, as a Jets fan I am content with what Mark Sanchez has done, but am not satisfied. He has taken the Jets to two AFC title games but has lost them both. Outside fans and analysis all say that Sanchez is young, and Jet fans should be grateful for him to have taken them that far.

But what about Ben Rothlisberger for example, he won the Superbowl in his second year in the league. So there is no justice when someone says to be grateful for what Mark Sanchez has done.

Let’s talk about Tebow.

There is no denying that he is as genuine and as hard working as they come. I would have to imagine what coach would not want someone like that on their team.

What I don’t get is that people say, oh Tebow he’s a good man, but he doesn’t have the mechanics or the by the book type delivery to be successful. All that matters in the NFL are winning, it doesn’t matter how you do it, but as Herm Edwards said, “You play to win the game.”

Many argue that Tebow should just switch to a different position because he is obviously not able to be a quarterback. Tebow won both the National Championship and the Heisman as a quarterback; it is evident that the kid has some talent.

Was it all worth it?

I think it is a win, win for the Jets. If Mark Sanchez struggles for another year in a row then he deserves to get replaced, the NFL is a competition. If someone is incapable of leading your team to anything short of a Championship then they should be replaced, simple as that. Last time I checked, the Jets haven’t been in the Superbowl since 1969, the Joe Willy Namath days.

Will Tebow be starting at some point this season? Who knows? I think if Sanchez struggles, without a doubt No. 15 deserves to be under center. We will have wait and see and see how the Tebow story unfolds.
