PLAYERS: Barack ObamaTim Tebow
TEAMS: New York Jets
The United States has seen its fair share of sporting presidents, but never one who fills out March Madness brackets on ESPN. That's why it isn't surprising to find out that Barack Obama made an appearance on WNBS, a radio station out of Columbus, Ohio, on Friday morning to discuss all manner of sports topics. Among other things, we learned that the commander-in-chief sees trouble on the horizon for Gang Green's potential quarterback problem. I don't like the idea of a quarterback controversy at the start of a season. If I were a Jets fan, I'd be pretty nervous," Obama...

Tim Tebow and the Wildcat

Tim Tebow is a pretty mediocre quarterback, but he’s a hell of a football player. I thought Denver was nuts to draft him in the first round, as he wasn’t a good investment as a traditional drop back passer. Even so, his competitiveness and athletic ability helped him lead the Broncos to some incredible victories. That said, few teams wanted him after the Broncos jumped on the...

Will Tim Tebow Start at Quarterback for the New York Jets this Season?

When has there ever been a backup that gets more attention than a starter does? I don’t know if there has ever been such a thing happening as it is in New York. The Jets acquired quarterback Tim Tebow from the Denver Broncos earlier this year, and has received more attention than starting quarterback, Mark [...] [[ This is a content summary only.

Jets unveil Tebow in goal-line offense

Usually, quarterbacks are off limits to taking hits from the defense during NFL practices, but when the Jets unveiled their goal-line offense on Thursday with Tim Tebow taking the snaps, coach Rex Ryan took the unusual step of telling the defense that the drill was live, meaning they could tackle Tebow. "When he said it was live, that made me smile," said Tebow, according...

The Tim Tebow Obsession

What is it about Tim Tebow that entrances the sporting world? Was it his clutch performances last season in Denver? Does the idea of an avidly religious athlete bring a breath of fresh air? We may not have a straight answer, but let's face the facts: sports journalists can't get enough. Almost every day on SportsCenter, SportsNation or ESPN First Take, Tebow is a top story...

Are the New York Jets just Blowing Smoke?

It’s all over ESPN and now NFL network has got into the mix. Tim Tebow is the most covered back-up player in any position of any sports ever. Ever since he was traded to the New York Jets during this off-season the idea of what Tebow is going to do has been up in the air. We have had rumors of special teams, to starting quarterback.

Rex passes on razzing Obama about Jets comments

Rex Ryan is no trash talker when it comes to the president. A day after President Barack Obama told an Ohio radio station that he is not a fan of Tim Tebow being on the New York Jets, the normally brash and bold coach resisted taking the expected humorous swipe. Instead, Ryan says Friday that he respects Obama and ''I respect the fact that this is opinion.'' Wait...

Eli thinks backup David Carr should go topless like Tebow

Eli Manning said he isn't jealous of all of the attention the New York Jets are getting but— while the two-time Super Bowl won't go topless like the now-infamous Tim Tebow photo— the New York Giants starting quarterback thinks his backup, David Carr, should give it a shot to give the team more exposure. "I told David Carr to take his shirt off while we were running...

Inside Look: ESPN’s Idiotic Coverage Of New York Jets Training Camp
