re: Report: Jets teammates vote against Tebow

To say anyone is jealous of Tebow when his teammates want Greg McElroy to play over him is pure delusion.


So is McElroy the second string QB or are Tebow's teammates just hating on him because it's Tebow? I love McElroy because he's a former starting QB for Alabama who helped lead us to an undefeated season and a national championship, but even I know his limitations. Do his teammates seriously think that he should start over Tebow? And if they do is that based on his skills or their jealousy and bitterness over the attention Tebow is getting in the press as a back up QB?

I actually feel sorry for Timmy. I know everyone loves to hate on him, but he keeps his mouth shut in the media and is all about the team every time somebody asks him a question about it. I don't get why his teammates are hating on him other than the fact that they are in complete denial about their situation.
don't feel sorry for Timmy... he gets paid NFL paychecks to be a slightly better QB than me

Didn't Tebow beat the Jets last year?

I think the people who have this burning hatred of Tebow are part of the problem.

exactly. It seems if you have an opinion that Tebow is not a very good QB then you're automatically labeled a hater.

re: Report: Jets teammates vote against Tebow


It is extremely obvious that many NFL players have a burning hatred of the attention that Tim Tebow gets. A reporter called Mark Sanchez "Tim" during an interview for Christ's sake.

That said, I don't understand why they are so angry at Tebow. If they were as marketable as him, they'd be taking all of the attention and money they could. They are angry at the wrong people. The players comments should read like a book of insults at the reporters constantly bringing up Tebow, not Tebow himself.

No different than how it is with any other polarizing player.

quote:


Coach Rex Ryan has stuck with Mark Sanchez as his starting quarterback, despite the New York Jets' team's 3-6 record, saying that Sanchez gives his team the best chance to win.

According to a report, there apparently is no argument from his locker room, with more than 12 players believing Tim Tebow is not very good. Both offensive and defensive players, who remained anonymous, told the New York Daily News that they hadn't noticed improvement in Tebow's quarterback skills since he joined the Jets from the Broncos this past March.

"He's terrible," a defensive starter told the Daily News.

This might have more to do with their problems than anything else...

re: Report: Jets teammates vote against Tebow


Herein lies the problem the media and overzealous Tebow fans have created for him.

By all accounts Tebow is a good teammate who works hard and never says a bad thing about anyone. But here's a back-up QB causing dissension in the locker room because they're tired of answering questions about him and it's hit a tipping point.

Tebow is probably a better option as a back-up QB than the likes of Byron Leftwich or Matt Leinart, yet no one is gonna want the Tebow circus on their team because of the shite that's predictably happening with the Jets.

well, he's right about Mark Sanchez sucking. He's a bottom tier QB in the NFL.



And Tebow is worse. 29th in QBR last year, 34th in completion percentage. And he had two good WRs with Denver and a good head coach. Jets have no good WRs and I don't see Ryan being able to completely switch the offense to favor Tebow.

Nailed it. Tebow didn't ask for it but that's the situation created by the media. Everywhere he goes, unless there is a top 10 QB in front of him, there will always be these problems.

you, for starters.

It's amazing. Y'all are like moths to a flame, hyping any Tebow story to show he sucks and then bitching about the constant media coverage of a backup QB. The reason there are so many stories on Tebow is because fans eat it up like candy.

He's the backup QB for a bad team. The starting QB undeniably sucks. I really have no vested interest in whether he starts, but I don't think its the worst idea ever. I mean, Sanchez sucks. Tebow sucks, but can at least run. Why not give it a shot? You're gonna lose anyway.

But what amazes me is how any thread on Tebow automatically seems to go three pages. Just ignore the guy, he'll go away. Hey, we already have a new Tebow named Collin Klein, and he's pretty fun to watch.

People like you are a huge problem too. You view any criticism as "burning hatred". No. It's criticism. He sucks.

LOL

I don't hate Tebow. I equate Tebow with Vince Young. And I don't hate Vince Young.

Compared to the other options on their roster, he is.

Going to have to disagree with this. Have you seen Sanchez's quarterback rating? Just over 70, ahead of only Weeden,Skelton and Cassel. Tebow would cut down on turnovers and definitely make the run game more effective.

I'm not saying they hate him, but they obviously dont like him. I dont think you would give quotes like these about a teammate if he just sucked. It seems like it's more than that.

It's because they get asked questions about Tebow every single day. I'm sure they're getting fed up with it.

I would put money that at least two of those quotes are from Cromartie.

re: Report: Jets teammates vote against Tebow


I said he sucks, too. He does suck. No one is arguing he is good other than Skip Bayless, a professional media troll. Yet y'all keep falling for it and engaging in the argument. This is perhaps the first Tebow thread I've posted in all season, I just wanted to point out the reason we have have tons of Tebow threads is because y'all never get sick of talking about him.

Stop feeding the beast. If you want Tebow to go away, stop linking to stories about him and stop talking about him. Then, he'll go away. But you can't obsessively follow this guy's career, finding every article which shows he sucks, and then complain about the media's coverage. You are demonstrating you WANT more Tebow coverage.

Tebow and his media coverage doesn't bother me because I own a mouse and a remote control.
