The New York Post, much like SportsCenter, has a fascination with Tim Tebow. They would write about him week in and week out as the Jets continue to go down the pooper.The latest story to come out of that circus act of a locker room has "anonymous" Jets player ripping Tebow and calling him terrible.

I hope Tim Tebow is breathing this morning because he just got ran over by a green and white bus with the license plate New York Jets.

It seems like it was several years ago that John Elway stated that Tim Tebow has earned the right to be the starting quarterback heading into training camp this 2012 football season for the Denver Broncos.Actually, Elway made this comment just this January. Elway had plans to work with Tebow in the offseason to improve his throwing mechanics.That all changed when Jim Irsay...
Since the trade for Tim Tebow and the pictures of him running shirtless in the rain at practice, the talk about the two time college National Champion has faded. As the 3-6 Jets head to St. Louis to face the Rams this week, the reports from New York have informed the public that multiple players on the Jets team have ripped Tim Tebow and openly said they feel like Mark...
When I first heard that ESPN announcers were debating Tim Tebow starting for the New York Jets during yesterday's Butler-Xavier game, I was ready to man my battle stations and prepare for full fledged attack mode. But, ESPN's Bob Wischusen and Dan Dakich are actually poking fun at their own network's TebowMania obsession in the latter stages of a blowout game. Wischusen...
With the news coming out of New York this week regarding Tim Tebow and how his own teammates feel about him got me thinking about another quarterback that never amounted to anything.Ryan Leaf was a quarterback drafted in 1998 that many believed would be the next great one.

New York Jets offensive lineman Matt Slausen was the only Jets’ player to openly criticize quarterback Tim Tebow.

“I talked to one of the offensive lineman for the Jets, and they said throughout this season, Matt Slauson has graded out the worst...
Rex Ryan is no dummy, and so after he read off the Jets' injury report at his press conference Wednesday, he grinned at the reporters and into the glare of the television cameras crowded into the media room at the Jets' training facility. "Fire away, let's go," Ryan said. "Ask the questions you want to ask." An awkward silence ensued. "I...
