New York Jets fans are overreacting again. Something they tend to do a lot of. In this instance, it’s all because of the news that Tim Tebow has signed with the New England Patriots. After hearing multiple fans display their disgust about the move, I realized something I’ve probably known all along, Jets fans like to see the bad in all situations.

First they bash the move when the Jets sign Tebow. Complaining the move will bring unneeded drama and attention to the team and would have a negative impact on the organization. Now that he has gone to their biggest rival, they complain that Rex Ryan didn’t utilize him correctly and how they never should of let him go. They also praise Bill Belichick and say how he will turn Tebow into a great football player. Well which one is it? Personally, I think all Jets fans need to take a step back and realize this signing is insignificant. Tim Tebow will have zero, yes zero impact on the outcome of the 2013 New England Patriots.

Jets fans, don’t you have bigger things to worry about, like say your own team, than to care about Tim Tebow? Your likely starting quarterback, Mark Sanchez, has had 52 turnovers the last 2 seasons, which is far and away the most in the NFL over that timeframe. Your starting running back, which you just signed to a multi-year contract, was just arrested for illegal possession of a firearm and possession of marijuana. Who knows if Mike Goodson will even play a down for the Jets this season.

Lastly, you just traded your star player in Darrelle Revis to the Buccaneers. Oh yeah and you play them in week 1. Come on Jets fans, is it not inevitable that Revis is picking off Sanchez early in the game and returning it to the house? Yet, Jets fans are more enamored of the Tebow signing and how it will affect the Jets during the season.

You can pretty much pencil in the Patriots winning 11+ games every year. They have arguably the best quarterback of this generation in Tom Brady, a loaded supporting cast on the offensive end, and improving unit on the defensive side. Tim Tebow was signed to be the third string quarterback. Why on earth are Jets fans fussing over a third stringer?

They say the Patriots goal line and short yardage offense will only get better with the ability to bring in Tebow. Well here is a stat for you. Since 2005, Tom Brady is 49 for his last 49 on 3rd and 1 or 4th and 1 scrambles (ESPN Stats and Info). Tebow’s best attribute is his ability to run, or so they say. Last year, he had 0 touchdowns and the Jets averaged 3.8 yards per play when he was on the field. Still think he is going to have a big impact on the season?

Another idiotic argument made by some is that Belichick will turn him into valuable tight end or running back. Once again, wrong. If you listened to Belichick’s latest press conference, which are always upbeat, charismatic and chock full of useful information (okay, maybe not) you know that this is just not the case. Belichick even stated that he did not know what role Tebow would play with the team. Tim Tebow was signed to play quarterback, and third string for that matter.

Even Tebow stated he was unwilling to be a tight end or running back in this league. Not to mention the Patriots already have 2 Pro-Bowl caliber tight ends in Rob Gronkowski (who should be healthy by week 1) and Aaron Hernandez.

Jets fans are always looking at the negative side of things. I guess they have the right. This franchise has been nothing but a let down since Joe Namath guaranteed that win in Super Bowl 3. Forty plus years have gone by and not even a single Super Bowl appearance to show for it. The problem is, the future doesn’t look so bright.

While the Jets are in rebuilding mode, the rival Patriots expect to compete for another Super Bowl. And now with the Tebow signing, Jets fans are worried that yet another former player will help the team they hate so much win another title. Luckily for Jets fans, Tebow will have no positive impact on the Patriots. Unluckily for Jets fans, the Patriots still might win the Super bowl…again.
