It didn’t take long for Tim Tebow to feel the wrath of cynical Jets fans. The Jets opened practice to the public for the first time in training camp on Saturday. And after a handful of snaps in offensive team drills, it became clear Tebow and his arm aren’t winning anybody over. Here’s The Star-Ledger, via Pro Football Talk:
Later, during the 11-on-11 team period, Tebow received a few more jeers. On one play when he held onto the ball for too long, a couple fans called for him to “Throw it, Tebow!” Later, on a shaky incompletion, they called out, “Tebow, come on!” and “That’s a Tebow ball!”
What kind of ludicrous expectations did these fans have? We’re not even a week into training camp, so I don’t know what they were thought they were going to see, especially because Tebow is hardly known for his passing acumen. Plus, Tebow’s going to be on special teams anyway (maybe). Is Tebow that much fun to hate, even for Jets fans?
Anyway, we all know the mood will change when Mark Sanchez sti

Tim Tebow took his shirt off over the weekend after a Jets practice and almost broke the internet. Basically the guy has put on like 10 pounds of muscle this off-season in preparation for playing special teams and doing even more running in the red zone as a backup QB. Clearly this hasn't helped his passing game because the word is he can't even come close to his...
Tim Tebow is practicing one of his old tricks.
The New York Jets backup quarterback completed a jump pass on a fake punt during practice at training camp Monday. Tebow was lined up as the up-back when he took the direct snap, dropped back and then hopped and completed a short pass to tight end Jeff Cumberland.
Tebow first unveiled his jump pass while playing for the University...
Your first Tim Tebow update out of Jets camp? Other than being booed by spectators, Saturday the headline was, Tebow runs shirtless in the rain. Someone even created a video of it, set in slow motion and blended it with a the famous scene from the old school movie “10″ featuring Bo Derek . She [...]
ESPN analyst Ron Jaworski is currently in Cortland, NY checking out the New York Jets’ training camp and of course keeping a close eye on quarterback Tim Tebow.
Jaws noticed that Tebow’s throwing motion has improved.
“The one thing I’ve noticed about Tim Tebow — and it’s a small sampling thus far — is his stroke is much better,” said Jaworski, per ProFootballTalk...

Mark Sanchez wants to be like Eli Manning.
The New York Jets' starting quarterback says after training camp practice Monday that he studied the trajectory of the Giants signal caller's career during the offseason and saw how Manning improved in his fourth season - which Sanchez is beginning - and ended up winning the Super Bowl. Appearing loose and relaxed despite the perceived...
CORTLAND, N.Y. -- The heavens opened up on the second day of training camp for the Jets at SUNY Cortland, and not just because Tim Tebow was present. On the first day that practice was made open to the public, thousands of fans -- a few of whom were actually bashing the Florida Gator product -- stayed to see what's in store for their team as the 2012 season approaches.QUARTERBACK...
It appears that one reporter had Tim Tebow on the brain during a New York Jets Q&A session at the New York Jets training camp.
Watch as she calls Jets starting quarterback Mark Sanchez, "Tim":
It's nice that Mark laughed it off since I'm pretty sure that he is seething inside from that.
The Jets have been the most talked about team in New York despite the Giants being the defending world champions. Every time I turn on NFL Network, there is Rex Ryan and Tim Tebow, with no mention of the Giants. Could this be intentional or is it done purposefully? At first thought, I blamed it on coincidence but that’s a little silly to think. Then I started thinking about it...
NFL training camps have opened and the media circus in NY is only just beginning to form around the Jets. With Tim Tebow in town, starting QB Mark Sanchez is starting to see real competition and could even find his job in jeopardy. However, you'd think people would at least have the courtesy of remembering his name...
