Three days after a report was published saying Tim Tebow told the New York Jets coaches that he didn’t want to be a part of the team’s Wildcat offensive package last week, the quarterback issued a firm denial. “I never said, ‘Hey, I don’t want to do anything or I won’t do anything,’” Tebow told reporters Wednesday, via the Associated Press. “That wasn’t the talk at all. [Rex Ryan] knows that, and everybody on this team knows that. I’d never not do something if I was asked, and I think that’s what’s disappointing about the whole situation, people saying, ‘You quit,’ or, ‘You didn’t do this.’ It was not it at all. “It was just me asking to get an opportunity to play the position I love, which is quarterback.

The Jets refuse to start Tim Tebow at QB, even in the last game of the season. Week 17 preview.

The Jets are going back to Sanchez instead of giving Tebow a chance. Entering the last week of the season I'm sitting at 153-87.  That's ok but not great.  I'd like to be over 170 for the season, but it is what it is at this point.  Let's finish strong.

Why can't Tebow play quarterback?

The biggest lie circulating about Tim Tebow is not that he is selfish. It is that he cannot play. Says who? Jets coach Rex Ryan? ESPN talker Merril Hoge? One is at the helm of the biggest hot mess going in the NFL at the moment, and the other has a thing for Tebow that feels almost uncomfortable. Hoge uses whatever Tebow does, from jogging shirtless to eating a hamburger from a...

NFL Rumors: While The Media Still Obsesses Over Him, Clearly, Rex Ryan Hates Tim Tebow

The media world will apparently always obsess over New York Jets third string quarterback Tim Tebow.

Well, one place...
