A win will show the world that they can use Tim Tebow and The Wildcat appropriately as well. We have seen about all we need to see of Tim Tebow running a conventional offense. He spent the whole preseason running Mark Sanchez’s offense, trying to improve his mechanics and his overall play as a conventional quarterback. The big mystery has been how the Jets are going to use Tim Tebow when it counts. How often will he come into the game? What will it look like? Will Sanchez be on the field at the same time? Using the Wildcat, or whatever they are going to call it, in a positive way that helps the Jets get a win is essential in this game on Sunday as well.
The last four weeks have inspired one thing around the New York Jets. They have inspired the critics. Not too many people are finding a lot of hope for success for this team in 2012. Merrill Hoge of ESPN actually went on record saying that the Jets will have a hard time getting to five wins. Now, that prediction is probably a little harsh, because the defense will be too good to let them lose that often. A win in the opening game will at least quiet the critics temporarily.
