In the midst of a train wreck season, the 3-6 New York Jets are proving what basically everyone was saying when they traded for Tim Tebow in the offseason - it will become a distraction.
And that big distraction reared it's ugly head again this week with anonymous players criticizing Tebow.
GM Mike Tannenbuam is the guy that pulled the trigger on the trade, and just as Rex Ryan is responsible for the players on the field, Tannenbaum is responsible for choosing those players who are on the field.
He was a guest on WFAN in New York: “I look at Tim as a great teammate, a competitor,” Tannenbaum said. “He’s done a lot of great things for us. You see him on the practice field working hard. . . . From a production standpoint it hasn’t been necessarily where we thought it’d be, but he has converted first downs.”
On Jets players calling Tebow "terrible": “I hated that; I was disappointed to see it.”
Tannenbaum doesn't see what's going right now as a sign that his days are numbered in New York, claimign it's the last thing on his mind. “I’m not worried about me right now. I’m the last thing I’m worried about — I’m worried about this team and anything I can do to help,” he said.
“I feel like we’re going to turn it around.”
At 3-6, a big turnaround seems unlikely in the Jets' current state. We think it's very possible that the Rex and Mike show might be in it's final season, but unlike some popular TV show, we're not going to see some spectacular final episode.

You are a sick person aren’t you? Sure, you have appropriately ripped your New York Jets all week to anybody who would listen. Sure, you swear you won’t waste time watching another game. But we all know that you will. You will be glued to your TV at 1 PM this Sunday, wondering in an anxious horror if your football team can truly get any worse…or if maybe, just maybe they could...
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. He was drafted second overall behind Peyton Manning in that draft. It was a long debate on which QB should...
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...
Tim Tebow may not have the backing of his teammates in New York, but it certainly sounds like he has some support in Denver.
Tebow, who was ripped this week by several Jets teammates in the New York Daily News, continues to get respect from players he worked alongside in Denver.
“He was one of my all-time favorite teammates,” cornerback Champ Bailey told the Denver Post. “One...
After a tumultuous week filled with antonymous quotes and an alleged in-house divide, the Jets answered the bell in St. Louis, snapping a three-game losing streak with a 27-13 victory over the Rams.
But it wasn't enough for Bart Scott, who failed to let Gang Green escape the Gateway City without an extra dash of drama.
Following the Jets win, the always outspoken linebacker...
New York Jets offensive lineman Matt Slausen was the only Jets’ player to openly criticize quarterback Tim Tebow.
NFL Network analyst Darren Sharper doesn’t believe Slausen has the right to criticize Tebow when he’s not a great player himself.
“I talked to one of the offensive lineman for the Jets, and they said throughout this season, Matt Slauson has graded out the worst...

The Rams must win this game against the New York Jets at home. On the road, I could live with a loss, but at home, we must win. The “must” part is not arising from a fantasy that we are a far superior team to the Jets. There are no teams in this league that we outclass by a large margin. Instead, the “must” part of the win comes from how well this games sets up for...
In Rex Ryan's first season as the New York Jets' head coach, Gang Green overcame two three-game losing streaks and won five of their last six games to make the playoffs and ride an improbable road win streak to the AFC Championship game. Ryan was asked Friday if this year's team, which sits at 3-6, leans on memories of that season for inspiration. "I think from a...
