During Thursday's practice session, Tim Tebow dominated goal line drills, giving Jets' fans a reason for optimism.

It took until day seven of training camp, but the New York Jets finally showcased Tim Tebow’s Wildcat package. During goal line drills, Tebow scored three touchdowns on four attempts with the first team offense, providing a mere glimpse of just how powerful the Jets' red zone attack can be.

It comes pretty natural,” said Tebow of his comfort level inside the 20-yard line. “It was fun. I feel like as an offense, we did a good job down there in short yardage and goal line.”

With New York’s defense dominating the past few practices, Tebow and the offensive unit made its bid for the Jets’ highly-coveted black practice jerseys.

“I feel like there are a lot of playmakers in this offense,” claimed Tebow.

“It’s when you’re number is called, (you have to) step up and make that play and I think the exciting thing is that there a lot of guys who have the talent, it’s just going to be fun to see what happens and who really steps up.”

While Gang Green’s Wildcat quarterback flourished during Thursday’s drills, Tebow expressed his desire to elevate his level of play when it matters most.

"I feel like hopefully I’m at my best in games," declared Tebow. I want to be a gamer, someone who performs under the lights. Someone that performs when it really matters. Ultimately it comes down to 16 weeks and that’s it. You prepare, all these practices and all of the offseason for 16 weeks."
