The Guy Who Wrote Game Of Thrones Hates The Tebow Trade

George R.R. Martin, author of the A Song of Ice and Fire series of novels, and confessed Jets fan, is not the biggest fan of the Jets' trade from one Timothy Tebow. Writing on his blog,

My Jets have given up two perfectly good draft picks for Tim Tebow, the worst quarterback in the National Football League.


Mark Sanchez is not, as yet, Eli Manning, but he is a talented quarterback with a good arm and he completes more than fifty per cent of his passes, none of which can be said for Tebow. The last thing he needs is a stadium full of Timomaniacs screaming for Tebow every time a pass falls incomplete. The divisions in the Jets locker room last season were well documented. THis is just going to make those problems a thousand times worse.

Nor do I think that Tebow's conspicuous piety will play well in the Big Apple. This is the city that once embraced Broadway Joe. Tebow would fit better in... well, if Branson, Missouri had an NFL team, that would be a perfect fit.

Of course now the Tebow deal has been held up, meaning this day has gone less smoothly than the Red Wedding.
