The future may be murkier than ever for Tim Tebow, but one thing is clear: He needs to extradite himself from the New York Jets to save his career.
By no objective means has Tebow's time in the Big Apple been anything less than an unmitigated disaster. Brought in to spring life into the Jets' stagnant offense, the 25-year-old signal-caller has done little more than barrel forward for short gains in feeble Wildcat formations and play punt protection in what oftentimes feels like a laughable emasculation.
On the season, he's completed six of seven passes for 39 yards and gained 87 more on 29 carries. For reference, he gained fewer than 126 total yards just three times last season in 14 appearances.
In fact, Tebow has been so underused at the quarterback position with the Jets that the folks at pro-football-reference.com have his position listed as fullback/tight end for 2012.
And it's not as if Tebow has gone unused because Rex Ryan's squad is leading the league in offensive efficiency or anything. The 5-7 Jets head into Sunday 29th in the NFL in total offense, averaging a paltry 308.9 yards per game. Mark Sanchez is in the midst of his worst professional season, according to ESPN's Total QBR and on pace to set that mark in Football Outsiders' DVOA rating as well.
