New Jets Logo Is Offensive Whether You're a Tim Tebow Fan or Not

Well, I guess it was only a matter of time before people started poking fun at Tim Tebow going to the New York Jets -- but I kind of figured it would take longer than a few hours!

CNBC's Darren Rovell just couldn't resist the urge to commit a major faux pas on Twitter by retweeting a revised version of the Jets logo, complete with a crucified Jesus Christ depicted in the name instead of the letter "T."

Wow. In this case the "T" can definitely be replaced with something else -- like tasteless. Or how about tacky? Or totally unacceptable?

Am I the only person who is seriously over people giving Tebow a hard time because he happens to be a decent human being who values his belief system? Because this kind of childish behavior is really getting kind of old. For the life of me, I just don't understand why people can't focus on his athletic ability instead of picking him apart at the seams for staying true to his core values. Is having morals really such a bad thing? (Apparently so if you're a professional athlete.)

The Jets acquired Tim Tebow because they wanted to make a change on their football team as far as winning more games goes. Implying that Tebow is about to give them some sort of huge religious makeover is beyond ridiculous. Whether you agree with Tim Tebow's belief system or not -- there is a certain level of respect that everyone deserves. And while Darren Rovell didn't create the logo himself, it's still ridiculous that he would feel the urge to share it. He should've just tweeted out well wishes or congratulations instead of making himself look like an idiot. And honestly, this logo is offensive regardless of how you feel about Tebow.

Yes, Tebow's a Christian. But last time I checked, being Christian doesn't have anything to do with being able to play football. Get over it, people.

Do you think the Jets made the right move by picking up Tebow?
