Roughly three weeks after several unidentified Jets players harshly criticized Tim Tebow, his former teammates in Denver took a similar course of action.

Under the veil of anonymity, of course.

“When Tim was here we saw the issues up close,” one Bronco told Mike Freeman of CBSSports.com. “The Jets didn’t, and now they are seeing the problems, too.”

“I feel really, really bad for Tim. He’s a good person, just not an NFL quarterback.”

On Sunday, the Broncos clinched the AFC West, allowing the team to cruise into the postseason. It’s a night-and-day transformation going from Peyton Manning to Tebow, a “gimmick player.”

“Of course we’re comparing this year to last year,” another Bronco said. “This year we won the division with four games left. That’s all Peyton Manning. If Tebow was here, we’d still be squeaking out wins, or losing games we shouldn’t be losing. The division would be coming down to the last game.

“I’ve been following Tim in New York and I feel horrible for him. Everyone here, I think, wants the best for him. He’s a good guy. But you can’t turn Tim into something he’s not, and he’s not really an NFL quarterback. He’s more of a gimmick player.”

Freeman says the biggest thing he took out of speaking to the players was the sense of appreciation they feel toward general manager John Elway, who did away with Tebow-mania and ushered in the talents of the future Hall of Fame quarterback.

“By bringing in Peyton, we can compete with any team in football,” one player explained, “Peyton is obviously that good.”

“I’m watching Tim and wishing him well but glad I’m here with Peyton.”

Looks like there won’t be many care packages coming out of the Mile High City. The Jets’ circus has officially turned Tebow into a punchline.

  • Well if they are afraid to reveal their names what worth are they? Let the man play and then see he only is allowed to play one down then he is out...........give him a chance.
  • Seriously. If you're not man enough to say who you are, it makes me wonder if you're man enough to play the game. What are they so afraid of? Tim isn't going to pray to God to strike them dead. I don't know Tim personally, but having watched him since college, he seems to thrive on criticism. I just wish those who are speaking out against Tebow would have the balls to say who they are.
  • I totally agree. A critique means nothing without a name attached. If you are going to 'dis someone...at least tell us who "you" are.

What is far more difficult to understand is why this is even a story. Tebow...
