Tim Tebow fancies himself a quarterback, and he isn’t afraid to stand up for himself either. Earlier this week, radio show host and former New York Jets’ QB Boomer Esiason continued his campaign to have Tebow excommunicated from the franchise. On Thursday, Tebow was a guest with Boomer and his co-host, Craig Carton, and did not back down from the criticism from Esiason, and feels justified in his performance and qualities as an NFL player.

Does it mean more to hear people say Tim Tebow NFL quarterback or Tim Tebow NFL player?
“I think more than anything you would want someone to say ‘there’s someone that helps the team win football games.’ That’s ultimately why you play the game is to win and however I can help a team win football games, that’s what I want to do. It’s been my dream since I was six-years-old to be an NFL quarterback and I’m very thankful I have gotten the opportunity to live that dream and I’m continuing to live that dream.”
How he would classify himself:
“I consider myself a quarterback that they ask me to do other things to help this team. If I have the ability and attributes to go do something else and help this team then I’m going to put my heart and soul into doing that.”
If he felt the playoff win over the Steelers was the validation he was looking for:
“I don’t think it was just that moment. I think it was the six game winning streak, I think it was some of the come-from-behind wins, I think it was helping lead my team to a playoff game and then it was great playing the number one defense in the NFL in our stadium and being able to win a big playoff game and then go play Tom Brady and the Patriots but there were a lot of special things last season. That’s in the past.”
For what it’s worth, Tebow is an NFL QB, he has proven that. Is he a good one? Not really. And that is more to Boomer’s point. But Jets fans really don’t care how it happens, but they just want their team to win. If that means Tebow takes over for Mark Sanchez, they really don’t care how he does it, just win.
