Tebow refuses to come into game on plays drawn up for him

34 posts in this topic

I have been trying hard to find something about Tebow that I like. I know he's tough, plays with heart but when you cry like a diva and tell a coach you refuse to play on the plays drawn up for you that is really taking things too far. Who the hell does Tebow think he is? He was NEVER guaranteed a starting or 2nd string job when he chose the Jets and said reguardless of his role he was happy to go there. Even though he hasn't played, pouting like a little diva really isn't going to win any of your doubters over. Mark Sanchez was benched and never complained and never complained about possible trade rumors either but Tebow is telling Rex Ryan what plays he will and wont play on? Get this joke out of the NFL asap.

Tim Tebow Is A Coddled Malcontent

medium.jpg

The Jets dressed three quarterbacks for their game against the Chargers yesterday—a game they lost, 27-17. Greg McElroy, the former Alabama quarterback who, evidently, never faced a pass rush while he was there, started, while Tim Tebow and Mark Sanchez backed him up. (Neither was the No. 3 quarterback proper, because No. 3 quarterbacks are not active on NFL gameday rosters.) This was the first game all year that the Jets had dressed three quarterbacks, even though they had plenty of reason to on prior occasions.

But for all the Jets' quarterbacks, the man who threw the game's best pass—a 42-yard bomb to Clyde Gates—was not a quarterback but a wide receiver, Jeremy Kerley, who played quarterback in high school. Kerley ran a handful of plays out of the Jets' wildcat, and he did fine, although one was slightly terrified watching defensive linemen chase after him. (Kerley is five-foot-nine and weighs 188 pounds.) But why was he back there? He hadn't been the wildcat QB all year. Tebow had filled that role. But ESPN explained after the game:

Tebow has been frustrated all season by his lack of playing time, but it culminated Tuesday upon hearing he would be passed over for a starting opportunity when Ryan decided to bench Mark Sanchez. Tebow was disappointed and upset enough to say he didn't want to be used situationally, sources said. He told the Jets coaches early in the week, giving Kerley time to take the practice reps. Soon reports emerged speculating the backup was looking to play outside of New York next season.

And why wouldn't Tim Tebow feel entitled to a job he hadn't earned? Here's Bomani Jones:

While Cam Newton was at Florida, Tebow wasn't the most talented quarterback on campus. After winning the Heisman Trophy, according to sources, he was outperformed by Newton in both practice and the ‘08 Spring game, yet Tebow (understandably) remained the starter. Newton was promised an opportunity to start in ‘08, but he never had a real chance given Urban Meyer's affection and preference for Tebow. At Senior Bowl practices in 2010, Tebow was so bad at taking snaps that shotgun elements from the Florida offense were added for him. That's right — his college offense was incorporated at the NFL's biggest job fair, one at which Tebow needed to show he could play a more conventional style of football.

Who knew so many well worn sports-media tropes could collide in one player? Tim Tebow is the plucky winner who rides his leadership and intangibles to greatness. Tim Tebow is also the overrated prima donna, the one who grumps over limited playing time and sulks and eventually quits on his team before demanding a trade. All things to all men, this guy. Which one is the real Tim Tebow? Find out by tuning in to Jaguars games in fall 2013

What has Tebow done that someone like free agent and fellow first round bust Vince Young hasn't done? Both continue to live off their college careers, both are total divas, both suck at their job. VY too took a team to the playoffs, had a decent w/l record...he even was offensive rookie of the year and went to the Pro Bowl TWICE!!

Only difference right now is the worst team in the NFL, 2-13 Jacksonville is the only team interested in Tebow because he is from that area while nobody is interested anymore in Young. The Jags, who badly need a QB will likely have the 1st or 2nd pick and pass on one for Tebow.

Tebow is a joke and his band of followers are a bigger joke. Did the Jets give this bum a signing bonus? Because he should surrender it back for being insubordinate.

He knows the Jests screwed him out of a year of possible playing time elsewhere. They traded for him for one reason: The hype and the media circus that surrounds him, and nothing more. They had no intention of giving him a shot, so why should he bow down to them when they feel like putting him in all of a sudden? F the Jests, and good for Tebow for not buying into their bull****.

Good for Tebow. Kicked out of Denver and put on a shelf by the Jets. He doesn't deserve anything, but he's shown he can win games and atleast deserves a shot somewhere else. If a system like Carolina's and Washingtons can work for Cam and RGIII there can be one for Tebow.

Tebow picked them over Jacksonville. He made his own bed.

Not surprised by this at all. I felt he undermined the other QBs in Denver last year before being put in.

Both are MUCH better passers.

Tebow most likely was thinking about endorsement possibilities over the best possible fit when he chose NY. The Jets are a completely screwed up organization. Jax is, too. But, at least in Jax he would've been playing more.

Vince Young was 30-17 as a starter, made two Pro Bowls, made it to the playoffs once

Mark Sanchez is 32-30 as a starter, IS 3-3 in the playoffs, made it to two AFC championship games

Tim Tebow is 7-6 as a starter, made it to the playoffs once

None of them deserve a starting job in the NFL but if you base everything on what Tebow HELPED acomplish in Denver, then VY and Sanchez are far more deserving of a starting job too because they have shown they can win games especially VY.

Unnamed sources written up by a website that is getting third-hand information is certainly more reliable than anything said by the officials.

Ryan was peppered Monday with questions on Tebow's status, but he declined to address a private conversation with a player. Ryan confirmed Tebow was "disappointed" at not being named the starter, but the coach had no doubts by Sunday that the quarterback would have played if asked.

"If I would have asked Tim to play in anything, Tim would have gone in that game and done that," Ryan said.

If he did refuse and I was in charge, I'd have just said "You do what you're told or you get suspended for conduct detrimental... that will do wonders for your public image, won't it?"

So your dream involves us losing every game and massive amounts of injuries?

Love Dawk but there is nothing to say he can coach and Tebow flat out sucks as a QB.

Really? You want a coach who has the same agent as the player to bad mouth him? Most coaches wouldn't do that any way and none would do it in that situation.

The guy who wouldn't even try to do anything to support his teammate and quell a brewing qb controversy in Denver wouldn't play ball when he didn't get his way? Yeah I buy it. The guy admitted he told his coach late in the week he would do what he had to to help the team when that message shouldn't be necessary?

I could he wrong I admit that but I don't quite buy this team first image people get from him. Its great he wants to start but he should be learning a new.position IMO.

1-4 denver team to 8-8 division winners and a playoff win against the Defending super bowl champs the pittsburg steelers. And what does Tebow get? Absolute bull**** from the Jets. I would be livid with the organization

No I don't want any of them to do anything. I am saying that Rex is not exactly known for his tact and he said that Tebow was willing to do anything he asked him to do. I get that people hate the guy, but it isn't like he's refused to play anything but QB. He was the punt protector all season. I also hate these idiotic anonymous sources that are always used and people taking the crappy reports as fact.

Interestingly, I stated last year that Tebow will be out of the NFL in 2 years. That's a stretch, and I knew it at the time, given his popularity. Three years seems from now seems about right. The only place I can see him going is Jacksonville, because they need help selling tickets. But how long will he be willing to be a sideshow? Even that gig will get old fast if he doesn't play for the Jags and mostly rides the bench.
