Geno Smith is not a leader. Period. It would have been simply inconceivable for a Peyton Manning or a Joe Namath or [enter here the name of any great QB] to be shown such disrespect and punched for an off the field reason by a teammate.
The strange and rare reality of Tebow -- whom the New York Jets quite literally could not give away -- is that the media love to cover him, to criticize him, but perhaps most importantly, to try to make sense of him.
It will not matter to the Patriots or the Jets what Tom Brady, Mark Sanchez or Tim Tebow does if their offensive lines do not improve. Meanwhile, the Dolphins can't figure out whom to start at quarterback -- again.
