Wednesday’s New York Daily News stated that over a dozen teammates and members of the Jets organization believed that Tebow was “terrible” and had little chance of supplanting Mark Sanchez as the starting quarterback.
Jets head coach Rex Ryan was clearly disappointed in his team’s comments and cited that those who wanted to be critical should have put their name on it.
The most enjoyable part of the story stemmed from Tebow himself. When approached about the hurtful comments, Tebow’s remarks appeared to miss the mark:
I always find the good and the positive in every situation,” Tebow said, “and the positive of this is to go and work a little harder and build better relationships with your teammates.”
Members of the Jets may very well like him as a person and teammate but that is not the problem here. The issue lies with his skill set.
You know how to have a better relationship with teammates? Be a good player.
Quarterbacks become far more likable if they complete over 60 percent of their passes and prove to be capable.
That holds true for every NFL quarterback…except Jay Cutler.
Nobody likes him.
