BEST CASE SCENARIO
It’s pretty clear what it will take for the best case scenario to happen. Mark Sanchez will step up and take the QB competition head on. He will take all of this negativity being shown towards him, and play with a chip on his shoulder. That chip, will turn him into the quarterback he expects to be. He will cut down on his interceptions and lead the team.
Tebow will not play 20 snaps at quarterback. He might play that many snaps, but it will be at any number of positions. He will see time at wide receiver, running back, fullback, as well as a couple of snaps in the Wildcat. The offensive plays that involve Tebow, will also have Mark Sanchez on the football field, making it impossible to know where the football is going, and where it’s coming from.
The defense will come back to the forefront, led by Quinton Coples and Demario Davis. Quinton Coples and Aaron Maybin both have double digit sack totals, and Calvin Pace is not far behind with 8 or 9. The defensive backfield has a re-birth, with Josh Bush and Antonio Allen making the lives of Rob Gronkowski and others a living hell. Demario Davis is active in pass coverage as well, and between the three of them, a good 9 or 10 INTs.
All of this leads to an 11-5 or 12-4 record, and a playoff appearance. It could even earn the Jets a home game, as they will fight the New England Patriots tooth and nail for the division title.
