New York (CBS4) - Just like his time in Colorado, Tim Tebow is causing a stir in the big apple.

Tebow’s every move is being watched and dissected during his first training camp with the New York Jets. Fans love him, but many football experts are still not sold on Tebow’s quarterbacking abilities.

That includes former Jets QB Boomer Esiason.

On his morning radio show Monday, Esiason went so far as to suggest the Jets cut Tebow.

“I’m just telling you right now, I would (cut him), and I’ll tell you why I would,” Esiason said.  “It’s not in any way, shape or form — I think — benefiting this team.”

Esiason’s issues with Tebow? First, he doesn’t believe the former Bronco can throw the football well enough to win in the NFL.  Secondly, Esiason thinks the circus-like atmosphere that is surrounding the backup quarterback is hurting the Jets’ preparations for the season.

“I just think this whole thing — at least from my perspective right now in relation to who Mark Sanchez is, your starting quarterback — is a major mistake,” Esiason said.
