    NY Jets Teammates Rip Tim Tebow (here we go...)

    NY Jet teammates rip backup Tim Tebow, believe 'terrible' quarterback hasn't improved

    BY MANISH MEHTA / NEW YORK DAILY NEWS

    UPDATED: WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 14, 2012, 2:30 AM


    Tim Tebow has accounted for only 132 total yards and averaged seven offensive snaps per game.
    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. Tebow has been a poor practice player throughout his career. His current teammates echoed sentiments from Denver Broncos players a year ago about the lefthanded signal caller’s poor practice performance.

    The 3-6 Jets’ dwindling playoff chances haven’t changed this mind-set in the locker room: Tebow isn’t a panacea.

    Despite Mark Sanchez’s league-low 52% completion rate and league-high four red-zone interceptions, the players believe he should remain the starter over Tebow, who has accounted for only 132 total yards and averaged seven offensive snaps per game. Rex Ryan has backed Sanchez without publicly guaranteeing that he will be the starting quarterback for the rest of the season.

    Left guard Matt Slauson, who has repeatedly supported Sanchez, made it clear that the fourth-year signal caller is the Jets’ best quarterback.

    “It’s not even close,” Slauson said. “All the other quarterbacks know it. I have all the confidence in Mark. We don’t really have a choice.”

    When asked about the team’s two other quarterbacks on the depth chart as possible alternatives — Tebow and Greg McElroy — Slauson clarified that the Jets really have only one other quarterback.

    “We have Greg . . . and we have an athlete,” Slauson said.

    But could the Jets win with Tebow as the No. 1 quarterback?

    “Do I have to answer that question?” a veteran starter said, shaking his head.

    To most of the people in the organization, Tebow is nothing more than a specialty player who doesn’t have the requisite skills to be a true quarterback in the league. “We don’t look at him as a quarterback,” another starter said. “He’s the Wildcat guy.”

    The designation dismisses Tebow’s success in Denver last season. Despite Tebow’s magic from a year ago, the Jets still view Sanchez as a much better option and have no immediate plans to bench him, according to sources. 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.”

    Tebow’s legs provide a tempting alternative for the Jets’ slumping offense. “That’s the real threat he brings,” defensive lineman Mike DeVito said.

    “He’s a winner,” said a Jets source, who made it clear that even though he wanted Tebow to get more playing time, Sanchez should remain the starter. “If he stays on the field long enough, usually good things happen.”

    But most members of the Jets don’t believe that what they saw from Tebow last season is sustainable. “We can’t win running that sh--,” one player said.

    They think Tebow’s heroics in Denver were a mirage.

    “Now we’re depending on miracles?” a member of the organization said. “You can’t play that way.”

    However, Sanchez’s poor play raises legitimate questions about whether a change — if only temporary — is in order for a team that has lost nine of the last 12 games dating back to last season.

    The decision-makers don’t think that’s the right course of action. “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 hate rooting for this team sometimes. Hate it.

    The head of LIPA just quit. Mike Tannenbaum is officially the most incompetent and despised CEO in New York now.

    Typical Manish. You know it was only a matter of time.

    The end will justify the means if we get rid of the Big 3.

    I thinks it's more of protecting Sanchez.

    The Players are right though and this is in the Jets FO/Owner to have the Jets number 2 QB be someone incapable of playing QB.

    I agree. If anything the players are ripping Tannenbaum and Woody and also confirms what I've been saying repeatedly.


    Rex cannot say what he wants to say about Tebow. "He is not an NFL QB". (THough it's hard to imagine he's worse than Sanchez).

    I've never heard describe Tebow as a QB (Though I could have missed it). I've heard "He's a great player", "He gives us other looks", but not "He can be a top x NFL QB".

    Jet players have now embrace the Rex way. Tebow is not the reason why they are 3-6. So are they saying now Tebow is the reason their homer QB has looked like dog crap this year?Excuse machine is in start up mode.

    Way to stir up trouble, Manish. There was zero purpose in writing an article with an obvious premise other than to create locker room disharmony. It's like the Jets beat writers need a soap opera to report stories on.

    Why do you blame Manish, it is his job to sell papers and web hits. If idiots on the team want to give him stories, so that he can play them up when the time comes.

    F---ing Rex is trying to get ready for the rams and now he has to take time out from that to address this.

    How can we have people in the organization ripping our own players and talent?

    As with any business it starts at the top, Woody allows this circus to go on and Rex makes it worse while tannenbaum sits around.

    If I was the owner, I would make it my mission to find out what "jets official" said the WR comment and fire them immediately.

    What a joke

    How is this Manish's fault?

    If those players who were asked about Tebow said "I have no comment", then this would be a non-issue.

    It's so bad I don't even think I need to go there.

    In a twisted sort of way, the fact that all the players are 100% in agreement on Tebow and 100% in support of Sanchez makes me really think about how much they hate Tebow, a bit of a rallying cry.

    In fact, if we cut Tim instead of Aaron yesterday, might have motivated the boys more than a Rex Ryan sleep clinic. Never know.

    This is funny because I remember tebow taking the ball about 80 yards late in the 4th quarter against our defense and they couldnt stop him. Jets lost the game.

    The joke has been the idiots who think this was Sanchez's fault when it so obviously wasn't. This all falls on the owner, the GM and possibly the scouts.

    I'm not surprised. This is what you get when you trade for the most controversial QB the NFL has ever seen. Factor in that one of the short comings of our starting QB is his lack of confident at times and it is a recipe for disaster. I said it would divide this locker room and cause all types of distress. Been saying this for months on the board only to be disagreed with strongly. It's only now that more posters are seeing things more clearly.
