Leading up to Thursday, the Jets were using quarterback Tim Tebow in a conventional offense and as a personal protector on the punt team. Today they gave us an idea of how they might use Tebow.
“Tebow, working with the second-team offense, dominated a goal-line drill. In a four-play sequence, he ran for two touchdowns and tossed for another on a play-action bootleg,” per Rich Cimini of ESPNNewYork.com. “The Jets unveiled a Wildcat-like package, with Tebow taking a direct snap out of shotgun and running 2 yards up the middle for a touchdown.”
It will be interesting to see how the Jets actually plan on using Tebow for this season and how those plan effect starting quarterback Mark Sanchez. Tebow’s ability to throw and run could make for a successful offense using the Wildcat formation. If Tebow is successful and Sanchez has a slow start, expect an overwhelming clamoring from Jets fans ever that Tebow should start.
