yes, the front office **** the bed with the Tebow trade and how it was presented to the public. yes, the coaching staff could've done a better job of using him in games (although I can't recall the last time a backup QB played as much as Tebow did this year so stop the "he didn't get a fair shot" BS).
that doesn't entitle him to quit on the team. Santonio fumbled the ball after breaking his foot in half and he gets grilled for being a selfish primadonna, Tebow refuses to play because he's not happy that McElroy is starting and it's "good for him." who's delusional now??
Are we talking about the team that went to the media and badmouthed him behind his back, said he was terrible, can't throw, etc?
The coach who just one week ago said he wasn't happy with the Wildcat and keeps referring to him as a football player when he wants to play quarterback, furthering adding insult to injury?
The same coach who limited the Wildcat sometimes to 0 snaps? NOW all of a sudden the Jets want to use it?
Please... He didn't quit on the team. The team quit on him before he even had a chance. Sell this bag of crap to the gullible fans who want a scapegoat to blame.
The Wildcard didn't work. Period. It was pathetic to put him in there and just have him hand the ball off or run up the middle. The only thing it did is broke the guy's ribs. And if it's a "virtual certainty" he's going to Jacksonville, then he shouldn't even be active until after next week, and then ship him off. No reason to risk any further injury on this mess.
I find it just a tad bit convenient that every single time there were fans chanting Tebow in the stands or there was pressure to start Tebow because Sanchez was so terrible, and now Mcelroy...that these "anonymous" sources start running their mouths and this information is leaked to the media.
This is the second time that these sources are coming out at such convenient times.
It's pretty obvious someone in the organization has an agenda and are using the media to try and throw Tebow under the bus using him as a scapegoat to take away attention from where the real issue, from the fact they look like morons for not making the right decision. First for not letting him take over for Sanchez. Now for passing him up for Sackleroy. 0 touchdowns, 11 sacks and 2 turnovers...yeah everyone with half a brain knows Tebow can do better than that. This is just an attempt to placate this decision. They needed an explanation for the fact they won't start him for the final game either after that horrible performance by Greg.
But gullible Jet fans are buying it up because the main culprits for all this mess will probably still be here next year so they want your support. Tebow won't be.
