On the Move, by Casey Mitchell

This is Casey Mitchell guest blogging for ST today. After Peyton Manning signed with the Broncos, that left Tim Tebow as the odd man out in Denver. Not long after the signing, it was announced that Tebow is now a Jet. I think the best destination for Tebow would have been the Dolphins. He won a State Championship in Sun Life Stadium in high school, and not to mention the two National Championships he won as a Gator. People in Miami love Tebow, and he would have given new life to the franchise.Although it isn't the most popular trade among Jet fans, I don't think it was the worst possible move. I know that Mark Sanchez needs reps, but a little competition never hurt anyone. I've said it before and I'll say it again, I'm just not a fan of the wildcat. Any team that relies on it as part of their offense, usually doesn't have much success. I don't think he should be used as part of a wildcat, but the Jets are always raving about how Sanchez is their guy, so I don't see how Tebow would be a main contributor. There is always the possibility of using him as a full-back or tail-back, but that's just a crazy thought that will probably never happen. There have been a couple of delays in the trade so far, but nothing that will stop the deal from going through.
We have all heard about the Bounty Program, and now the punishments are beginning to come down. It has been announced that Sean Payton will not be coaching anywhere next season. He has been suspended for the entire 2012-2013 season without pay. That isn't the only punishment that is coming their way. The Saints will be stripped of their second round draft picks for the next two years. Also, former defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, has been indefinitely banned from the game. I have a feeling that there will be more sanctions to come in this case.
