    But he isn't a locker room cancer :rolleyes:

    You're on the roster for that reason, do your job.

    Even if it is the Jets, they've done nothing wrong here.

    Agree. He is being paid to do what he is asked to do. Of course people will side with "Cant blame tebow" excuses.

    Belichick would have suspended Tebow for conduct detrimental to the team. Ryan probably made Tebow a captain for the Chargers' game.

    This can't possibly be true, he is a great person, a hard worker and would do anything to help the team win.........right?

    Is it wise for a player without a position and soon to be out of a job to be acting like a spoiled brat?

    What a fraud.

    He is a good dude that doesn't mean he should continue taking that crap from this team. Good for him and it's about damn time.

    They didn't introduce him to the team without any officials from the organization.
    Coach kept referring to him as a football player from the first day and offered no real support.
    He gained weight, played punt returner, tight end whatever they wanted and kept his mouth shut.
    Anonymous quotes from the lockeroom badmouthing him.
    Then despite the worst quarterback play I have ever seen he gets passed over for the starting position and he's supposed to run the Wildcard to help the 3rd string QB when he wasn't even given a shot?
    Everyone knows Tebow went there cause he thought he'd get a shot. He didn't go to the Jets to just run the Wildcat and play punt protector for them. They destroyed whatever good image and value he had prior to him getting there.

    I hope he raised his middle finger too.

    I'll bet he used that middle finger to sign his paycheck, also. He gets paid to play. So, when he doesn't play he wants to and when he's directed to, he refuses. Which is it?

    Football players play football. If reported as true, Tebow clearly thinks he's bigger than the team. It shouldn't surprise anyone apart from the Tebow apologists.

    Well first everyone needs to keep in mind that these are just more "sources".


    But even if true, you need to look at the bigger picture. Football players are also working for a living and their value is important. And this team pretty much destroyed that without him really doing anything at all.

    He is a quarterback and wants to play quarterback. He was sold a bill of goods. He only agreed to doing everything that was asked of him because he was promised a shot. He fulfilled his end of the bargain. They didn't. Screw the Jets.

    I've no sympathy for the media circus that accompanies Tebow. He's carefully cultivated his brand since his college days making damn well sure we all know about it.

    If Tebow asked to be removed from a package which he should excel in then there is a serious attitude problem. I couldn't believe that I found myself agreeing with Mark Schlereth regarding Tebow's attitude to wanting to be given the opportunity rather than working for it.

    Wouldn't you kill to get on the field at every opportunity to showcase your performance for the next team?

    I keep hearing this media circus. What media circus? Popular quarterbacks get lots of coverage? What is it that bothers people so much about it? Who gives a crap? Nobody forces anyone to read or look at anything Tebow related.

    I never understood posters who read up, watch or join every Tebow discussion you can find then complain about it. That's hypocritical. Me? If I don't care about something, I ignore it. Simple as that.

    And no not when it is clear you are killing yourself and you are not going to get a shot. Not if the reasons you originally agreed to do these things was for an opportunity to play quarterback and not if you know you are in a Wildcat system that isn't where you belong. And especially not if your trade arrangement already took place. Who the heck knows?

    I'm glad he's not acting like a saint. It's the first time I see him show some balls and I hope it's true.

    Unprofessional. Do your job during the season. There are times when it's OK to say "Please don't hold me to my contract", but almost all of those are in the offseason.

    Ryan doesn't look good in this either.

    No idea cause it was reported already in 2 different places on this forum. I'm guessing it's the Tebow insanity. People who complain and hate talking about Tebow start discussions about Tebow. I never understood it.

    "According to Rich Cimini and Jane McManus of ESPNNewYork.com, citing multiple unnamed sources"

    I'd say this shows that the problem is with the player group rather than Tebow.

    What?!?

    Uh, it's the coaches decision to determine who starts. Tebow knows that. Just because a player gets beaten out doesn't mean he should refuse his role as a sub. That's a ridiculous attitude for a player to have. He's putting himself above the team.

    So, The Jets didn't do anything wrong. Tebow did. That's downright bad locker-room behavior from a player.

    if this is true, I don't see how anybody can support Tebow for this.

    Nobody knows what agreements happened inside those doors before he was traded and "sources" contradict Ryan saying it was "coach's decision". Just another article to stir up crap.

    Also, if there already have been agreements made to trade him to the Jaguars, as ESPN already reported, it would make perfect sense he shouldn't play right now. Why risk a guy who had busted ribs a couple of weeks ago and will likely be traded for something of value? For what?

    Um, he's on the Jets not the Jags and it wasn't the coaches who sat him it was Timmy begging out. Guess he's not the guy who would do anything to help his team. As the article states he's taking his ball and going home.

    Time for you fanboys to wake up and stop this ridiculous idle worship over this clown.

    I don't hear Matt Flynn complaining, if you don't earn the job you don't play, they didn't think he earned it obviously. I'm with you on the overused anonymous source card being played by the NY media, it might be a load of crap, who knows. Tebow should'v known he was joining a circus.

    Jacksonville was the better choice...

    It depends on the situation. If Rex or whoever got him told him to come there put on weight, run the Wildcat, that he would get a certain amount of plays, learn how to become a punt protector, and if Sanchez struggles he would get a chance in the spread option...then they had a change of heart, would you blame Tebow if he kept his end of the bargain?

    Everyone knew he wasn't going to win the starting job running Jets offense but is that what the agreement was? Again we don't know. What I do know is this is the same organization where BB put his resignation on a napkin and had this to say...

    Not the first time it happened.

    A couple of months ago Woody was making statements to the press about Tebow being there for a long time. Then you had anonymous quotes in the media blasting him. Then he gets benched for the third stringer. Then there are rumors of him going to the Jets

    At least us "fanboys" can read. Clearly you just came in here to get your shots in without actually learning the facts.

    That's the only official word. "Sources" claimed whatever you're spouting off there. And stop with condescending and your ridiculous comments about "idle worshiping" for someone being a fan and taking up for a player. Tebow's not my "idle". Or idol. Either way.

    And if you believe Rexy on this I have a bridge to sell you.

    As long as you and the and the rest of the fanboys and "idle worshippers" continue to pollute this board with this ridiculous Tebow adulation, I'll call you out on the idiocy of it. Hopefully this crap will at least get moved off the main forum to a sub forum where it belongs.

    Get over yourself hypocrite. I didn't start this thread. And the only one polluting anything is you with your attacks and barrages addressed to the people taking a side, not the topic.

    You need to look into that. Figure out why it bothers you so much someone else likes or defends Tebow that you get to the point where you have to start calling names or become condescending.

    You have issues.
