Tim Tebow Called Terrible By Jets Player; "No One" Wants Him Starting

by at . Comments

Maligned NFL bench player Tim Tebow has apparently been called "terrible" by a team member who says "no one" on the Jets wants him starting at GQ.

He's heard that sentiment a lot over the years, but usually from bloggers, not teammates.

The New York Daily News reports that various members of the Jets are frustrated with Tebow's failure to improve as a QB and have no desire to see him start.

The story seems to reveal a far more divisive atmosphere than earlier stories indicate.

"He's terrible," a defensive starter said, adding that he has no faith in a zone-read offense tailored to Tebow’s strengths helping New York reverse its fortunes.

Other sources blamed starter Mark Sanchez's woes on the receiving corps, with its lack of stars, but no one suggested Tebow replace him under center.

If the Jets were to run the offense the Broncos ran with Tebow, one player said, "we can't win running that Wildcat [stuff]," using an expletive to make his point.

Another Tebow critic on the team said "nobody" wants him to be the starter.

Guess no one thinks it's Tebow Time anymore, even in his own locker room. Except for maybe Camilla Belle, she'd probably love to be his tight end.






The good old boys are speaking out, but why. It's good to support a friend but why put down someone else. Tim Tebow brings excellents to wherever he goes. Be a man guys and give a man a chance. Lines were drawn before Tim got there. It's about being team mates and working together.


FACT=been watching football over 50 years and last season with Tebow was the most fun I have ever had with MY BRONCOs-so Jets-relax-life is short-have some FUN!!! Hey Tim come back anytime, we love what you did-forever & ever Tebow-FAN!!!


I say its time for a new coach . Tebow should be starting !!!


Yea Jets.... because what you've been doing so far has worked so well this year!! Tebow did one thing well with the Broncos.... he WON!! Something you can't say your dismal team is doing much of this year!


tim is the person smart teams would want most of the jets team are terrible tim hasnt had a chance your jealous you wish you could be like him i hope he gets with a team that appreciate him look what he did at denver last season with tim jets wont go that far


I think this is the epitome of the Jets' problems. Many of the starters don't know a "winner" even if they have one amongst them. They would rather languish in mediocrity than try a new avenue. Such a shame.
