Rex Ryan: Tebow Comments “Cowardly”
Per a report from CNN’s Sports Illustrated, New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan thinks the player(s) who called Tim Tebow “terrible” are “a cowardly thing.” Ryans comments are in response to an earlier report of over a dozen Jets players and members of the organization anonymously criticizing Tebow. Ryan is absolutely right; if you want to call Tebow terrible, be like the Jets left guard Matt Slauson, a staunch Sanchez supporter, who said going with Tebow “wasn’t even an option.” Ryan also emphasized that Tebow was not brought in to be the starter but has done everything he has been asked to do and is typically the first one at practice and the last one to leave.
By now, most fans should have moved past the overhype that the media exposes Tebow to; bottom line is Tebow is a hard worker, a gifted athlete, but is not NFL starting quarterback material. Sad thing is at this point is that there doesn’t appear to be a starting caliber quarterback on the Jets roster at all.
