New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow reportedly asked to be taken out of the team’s wild cat formation plays for this Sunday’s game (Credit: AP Photo) I thought maybe, perhaps, I would have a year off of dealing with Tebow mania. In case you did not have enough of it last season, it has returned again this year. First the New York Jets came out to say that they will look to shop the back up quarterback during the off-season. Now, Tebow has reportedly asked to be taken out of the offense. Prior to Sunday’s game against the San Diego Chargers, Tim Tebow asked to be removed from the team’s wildcat formation plays. According to Rich Cimini and Jane McManus of ESPNNewYork.com, citing multiple unnamed sources,Tebow told coaches he didn’t want to be used in Wildcat plays against the Chargers. Tebow went to coaches early in the week to tell them he didn’t want to be used situationally, giving them time to get Kerley ready. When asked after the game who told him he wouldn’t be running the Wildcat plays, he replied: “It just kind of happens.” Jets coach Rex Ryan said during his press conference Kerley was used for the element of surprise, and through a team spokesman it was a “coach’s decision,” when asked specifically if Tebow asked out. “It’s been disappointing, obviously (the season) didn’t go as we thought, as I had hoped,” Tebow said. “But sometimes in life you have that. Sometimes you have setbacks and you have to look at them as an opportunity to step back up and keep working and figure out what to do.” It sure is strange that such a “nice” guy would do something some, myself included, would call childish. This story just screams that Tebow was that kid when he did not get his way, he threatened to take his stuff and go home. Maybe Tebow isn’t the great guy everyone thinks he is or maybe he just wants to play.   The post Report: Tim Tebow asked out of Wildcat because he was skipped appeared first on DOWN & DISTANCE.
