The Good, The Bad, The Tebow

If there was one drive that summed up Tim Tebow, it was this one. There was good (running Tebow) and ... well, really bad. The good and bad came almost back-to-back and kind of just wrapped things into a nice little package.

First, the good. This was a nice little run by Tebow. He took off, found a seam and picked up some nice yardage. The crowd was pumped!

And Tebow was pumped, too!

But as soon as the crowd saw a glimmer of Tebow-fueled hope -- as soon as fans started chanting his name -- he came through with a reminder. When Tebow's feet aren't set, things don't go well. In fact, disastrous would be too good a word.

This pass was absolutely horrendous, unless he intended to throw it right at a DB. It was Bad Tebow to a T.

So there you go. One drive that sums up the good and the bad of Tebow in a nutshell.

Cam Newton Is Morgan Newton Is Cam Newton

Remember what happened to Morgan Newton right around this time last year? You know, the quarterback that sacked himself? Must be the last name or something, because Cam Newton pulled a similar stunt on Sunday night.

There is a difference: Cam was kind of moving around in the pocket, not just falling over backwards while attempting to drop back. But oh boy was it bad -- and it included a fumble.

Or, if you please.

Naturally, the replacement refs made an absolute mess of this. Somehow Cam was ruled down by contact and the fumble was ignored. A commercial break and a replay later, and all was right in the world.

Oh, and the Jets still couldn't find the end zone from 12 yards out. This game is something.

Don't Do This Muhammad Wilkerson

Look, it's preseason. Let's not be getting all dirty right now. Putting a forearm on Cam Newton's helmet -- kind of wrenching his neck -- while presumably giving him a quick talking to isn't really the route to go. Especially after diving onto the pile late.

But Muhammad Wilkerson did it anyway.

It's not terrible, but ... it's preseason. And Wilkerson didn't really do anything on the play anyway, other than fall on top of Cam late.
