NYDN – Tebowmania may have captivated the NFL last season, but Tim Tebow’s new team doesn’t believe that he’s a savior. More than a dozen Jets players and members of the organization painted a sobering picture of the player who rallied the Broncos to the playoffs last season. In their eyes, he’s simply not very good. The prevailing thought in the organization is that Tebow is nothing more than a gimmick. “He’s terrible,” a defensive starter told the Daily News. Although Tebow told The News last month that he has made improvements as a quarterback over the past few months, none of the people in the organization who spoke to The News shared that sentiment. Both offensive and defensive players admitted that they hadn’t noticed any appreciable improvement in Tebow’s quarterback skills in practice since he was traded to the Jets in March. None of the members of the organization interviewed by The News believed that a zone-read offense tailored to Tebow’s strengths can help the Jets reverse their fortunes. “Hell, no!” another starter said. “You got to keep defenses honest. You just can’t line up in the Wildcat all the time. That won’t work.” “It would take extreme poor play. . . . like a five-interception game,” said a prominent member of the organization. “Something where it was just ridiculous. It would take Mark to totally just sh– the bed and become unglued (before there was a quarterback change).”
The organization has factored Sanchez’s weak supporting cast of skill position players into the equation.
“Look at some of the players he’s throwing to,” a Jets official said. “It’s garbage.”
Said another Jets source: “I’ve seen better receiving corps in college than we have on our team.”
So, who wants Tebow to be the starter?
“Nobody,” a member of the team said.
I guess this is a big deal? I mean this is the 50th time in the past couple seasons we’ve had unnamed Jets bashing each other. There is literally nobody on the planet earth that doesn’t think these thoughts about Tebow. Nobody on the planet who doesn’t think the receiving core is garbage. Nobody who thinks the Wildcat is a viable winning offense. So to me this is a bunch of anonymous cowards who have always been anonymous cowards saying shit that everyone agrees with. Big breaking story from the Daily News!
I will say this though – these quotes about “it would take some extreme poor play” and “it would take Mark to totally shit the bed and become unglued” to bench Sanchez – uhhh, we haven’t seen that yet? Mark has filled up about 10 to 15 California King beds with shit. He passed “extreme” poor play a long time ago. We’ve moved on to severe, supreme, maximum poor play. Tebow ain’t the answer, neither is McElroy. But its a wrap for Sanchez and the fact that none of these anonymous shit talkers were willing to admit that just goes to show how much they genuinely hate Tebow. In any other situation these comments are directed at Mark, but Tebow is like his first line of defense.
So on the whole, this entire team is fucked. Devoid of talent. Horrible attitude. Mutiny in the lockerroom. Zero leadership. And media controversy galore. I don’t know much about the Jaguars or the Chiefs, but I’d argue it cannot be worse than the Jets situation. And if the players on the team aren’t gonna keep a positive outlook then neither am I anymore. Telling it like it is from now on. Fuck this shit.
