Hey, Jets! Tim Tebow's Available! Again!

Say what you want about Tim Tebow, he's never needed a face mask to keep his nose out of a lineman's butt.

That fact alone should put the recent casualty of New England's Turk on their radar screen. Again.

After all, Tebow is healthy, he knows where the in-bounds lines are, and he's not Matt Leinart.

OK, the sporting world's version of Paris Hilton may have had an uneven pre-season, but Tebow knows his way around a clipboard, too. Right about now, the Jets could use that kind of versatility.

And experience. After being cut by three teams in 18 months, Tebow knows the league.

But enough about the ex-Gator's qualifications for re-assuming his rightful place as the Jets' helmsman. The hard fact is there actually may not be enough room left in that clown car for another spin this season. And after this latest career retardant, it probably doesn't make sense for Tebow to find yet another quarterback guru who can 'fix' him.

Maybe Thom Brennaman was right. The announcer who almost single-handedly polarized the public with that inane comment -- "If you're fortunate enough to spend five minutes or 20 minutes around Tim Tebow, your life is better for it." -- might have inadvertently pointed the way forward for the college-hot-pros-not media sensation.

Remember that Tebow was raised by missionary parents. And say what you will, he's never fumbled God's playbook. If anyone is qualifed for a true calling, it's this young man.

He should return to Florida and become a recruiter. SEC country knows true devotion when they see it.

He might convince Robert Kraft to donate to the program.

But not this kid's dad:

Odds are it was Bill Belichick.
