New York Jets QB Tim Tebow has received his fair share of criticism and attention this offseason. Some of the criticism has come from former NFL players which shared Tebow’s position, quarterback. Former Cincinnati Bengals and New York Jets QB Boomer Esiason has been one of Tebow’s harshest critics, saying earlier that “Tim Tebow should be cut.” When asked about Esiason’s comments, Tebow told reporters, “I’ve heard nothing but good things about Mr. Esiason…and God bless him.” Esiason has commented on the southpaw quarterback once again, this time telling USA Today that ‘I think he’s on the wrong team at the wrong time.” Why is it that former Jets quarterbacks feel the need to comment on the current status of the Jets all the time? Esiason posted a career 15-27 record with New York in three seasons. Esiason states in his interview that he believes that Tebow was brought in by the Jets in order to push current QB Mark Sanchez. I can follow this line of thinking and past practice by head

  • Well. Mr. Esiason, I don't think your record of 15 wins versus 27 losses gives you much room to criticize anybody. Plus you only played 3 seasons--how does this make you an expert? How many play-off games did you win? Or even play? Why don't you wait until the end of the season & then express your opinions. As you well know, there's 53 guys on a team, one player cannot win alone, but he can inspire them to play beyond their capabilities.

Tim Tebow Could Be Most Important Player In NFL History

Tim Tebow is a backup quarterback for the New York Jets. In this role he is miscast as badly as he could possibly be.He does not have the skill of a four-down NFL quarterback. If you think about it this situation is as silly as Christopher Walken as Rocky Balboa.Christopher Walken won an academy award two years after Rocky came out when he starred in The Deer Hunter.My point is Walken...

Tim Tebow leads the Top Five story lines for the 2012 NFL season

  1. When will Tim Tebow start for the New York Jets? If you believe that Jets owner Woody Johnson signed Tim Tebow just for the wildcat offense, then there's a bridge down the street he wants you to buy, too.

New York Post paints New York Jets as sad clowns

Finally, someone has perfectly captured the utter circus that is the New York Jets.  Leave it to the New York Post to finally remember which New York team is the defending Super Bowl champs... and which New York team scores more points with their mouths than on the scoreboards.  Yea, yea, yea, we know Rex, this is the best team you've ever coached, yada, yada, yada...
