LaRon Landry 'would have loved' to see Tim Tebow throw more in 2012

On Wednesday, LaRon Landry found himself appearing on a bunch of ESPN programs. Because he was a member of the Jets in 2012, they hooked him up to a car battery and forced him to embrace debate asked him about Tim Tebow.

And Landry said what is reasonably understood to be a given regarding the Jets' offensive struggles in 2012; the team couldn't have been more obvious and bland in its usage of its holy punt protector.

"It got to the point where Tim's going into the game, it's going to be a power," Landry said Wednesday via the New York Daily News. "I would have loved to see him throw the ball a little more."

There's nothing to "love" about seeing Tebow physically perform an act of throwing the football. But it would've been at least interesting if the Jets used him. The only times that Tebow came in were to run the ball, and those times only seemed to occur when Mark Sanchez was actually finding a rhythm.

But despite that appearance, Landry said that the "circus" atmosphere that we all perceived wasn't entirely the case. Kind of.

"From the outside, it may seem like a circus. But for the most part within, it was a family, a unit," the safety said. "Certain days I went into the office thinking, 'Who's going to be up? Which quarterback is going to be up?' "

So, to recap, the Jets love each other but the quarterback situation wrecked everything. Which means the Jets are who we thought they are.
