Tebow to who?

Tim Tebow's going where?

Yes, that's right. America's favorite Christian athlete is going to America's Den of Iniquity, aka, New York City.

To play for the Jets.

For Rex Ryan, blowhard-us extreme-us.

Behind (or in front of) Mark Sanchez, who's probably blowing any kisses right now to the front office.

The guy was already getting enough heat without dropping Tebowmania in his backyard. Now?

Well, send in the clowns on unicycles, because this is going to be a circus unlike anything we've ever seen. And the Jets were already three rings of fun.

Seriously, I can't imagine a scenario that makes less sense than this, and has more potential for mayhem. Maybe the Jets think Tebow's obvious leadership skills will have some reforming influence on a chaotic locker room, but that's putting more of a load on even Tebow's formidable shoulders than he's likely able to carry. Especially when the dominant personality in the organization remains its famously profane head coach.

Already I'm seeing this first-day scenario ....

REX RYAN: Hey, Tim, great to have you here. How about some lunch?

TIM TEBOW: Sure, Coach.

RYAN: Great. I'm telling you, I'm so bleepin' hungry I could eat a bleepin' horse. How about you?

TEBOW: Ummmmm .....

RYAN: Well, bleep, let's chow down then. Bleep. I'm so bleepin' happy you're gonna be part of our bleepety-bleepin' Jets family ....
