You aren't dreaming.
By shipping a fourth- and sixth-round pick to Denver for Tebow and a seventh-rounder, Rex Ryan has managed to comprehensively abandon his pledge to return this scattered team to normalcy.
We all know the deal: Rex just couldn't help himself.
Picture this: MetLife Stadium. We're 72 seconds into the Gang Green's first preseason game and Sanchez unfurls a duck, missing Chaz Schilens by 15 yards.
The cheap seats come to life. The sons of men who once showered the house with cries to fire Joe Walton are calling for Sanchez to be carted away. And it begins: Tebow! TEBOW! TEBOW!
This will happen. Not to mention the white-noise firestorm leading up to the actual games.
This is what Wednesday's headline-grabbing move accomplishes.
This is what Rex has done. The man who vowed solidarity and a workmanlike atmosphere inside the Jets' fractured locker room.
There is no running from this. Answer one thing: Would Sanchez have signed that deal, knowing just weeks later, this epic carnival would descend on Florham Park?
