So now we’re all in Tim Tebow’s head. That’s good to know going forward because I, for one, am dying to know how he thinks the upcoming season of “Survivor: Philippines” is going to shake out.
We all get that the Jets are the NFL’s biggest soap opera. Hardly a day goes by when they don’t do or say something that causes a group of reporters to knock over a row of pay phones, as we see and laugh at in “Airplane!” every time we catch it while flipping channels.
But that’s a comedy. Then again, so is a lot of the Jets media coverage these days.
This notion, as reported in a NYC tabloid on Thursday, that Tebow could leave the Jets after the 2012 season seems like it’s self-serving. It’s not necessary, even if there could be a modicum of truth to it. If feels more to me like since the Jets didn’t lose last Sunday and have a fairly decent chance of winning again this Sunday, the powers that be felt they had no choice but to decide we all needed a little turmoil in our lives. You know, a little exercising of the old checks and balances system of sports fandom.
How do you write a story like this after just one game? The timing does reek of the same old, same old when it comes to the traditional media mindset, but with the Jets it’s magnified, and the people who make up the traditional media mindset know that better than anyone. They think we can be spoon-fed anything. Well, maybe some of us can, but what does that say about the audience they are trying to reach?
