Lengendary QB Jim Kelly has never been shy about rooting for the team that he led to four Super Bowls in the early ’90s. Since he’s retired, Kelly has always been around the team, sharing in the fans’ pain as the Bills have failed season after season.
Like the rest of us, Kelly is rather tired of waiting for the Bills to win. He’s so desperate for Buffalo success that he’s now openly rooting for the Bills’ rivals to screw up. Namely, the Jets. On NFL Network recently, Kelly talked about his desire to see the Jets’ QB situation (with Tim Tebow being brought in “just as a backup” to Mark Sanchez) blow up in the Jets’ faces.
“As a Buffalo Bills fan, I hope there’s so much turmoil during training camp, I hope Tebow plays great, he pushes Sanchez, and all of a sudden the locker room is coming apart. They open at the Meadowlands, so this could be very exciting,” Kelly said.
Kelly went on to express some sympthathy for Sanchez, who is truly in a brutal situation with the super-popular Tebow coming in as his “backup.” Kelly added that he absolutely did not agree with the Jets’ decision to bring in Tebow: “I really, to be honest with you, don’t know what they were thinking. Me, if I was a general manager or a president or the owner of a team, I would not have done that.”
