In just a week’s time, everyone, from the media to the fans, seems to have done a complete 180 and are starting to sour on Tim Tebow. As they should, considering the second-year quarterback looked dismal in Week 8.
It’s gotten worse. Now an opposing player joined the fray, absolutely ripping Tebow a new one — albeit anonymously.
