Tim Tebow: I wanted to play for Rex Ryan when I saw “Hard Knocks”

New York Jets coach Ryan leaves the field after beating Buffalo Bills in their NFL football game in Orchard Park Reuters

When HBO’s Hard Knocks took viewers inside the Jets’ locker room in 2010, head coach Rex Ryan made an impression by dropping dozens of F-bombs, and he provided one of the most memorable quotations in NFL history when he took the Lord’s name in vain while imploring his players to go eat a snack.

Tim Tebow was watching, and he was not offended.

In fact, as Florio mentioned in his Tebow trade 10-pack, Tebow said that he loved watching Hard Knocks and is looking forward to the experience of being in those profanity-filled team meetings.

“I wanted to play for Coach Ryan ever since I saw Hard Knocks,” Tebow said. “He just seemed like a coach who loves football and is passionate about the game of football. He’s definitely a players’ coach. I just love that about him.”

Tebow said that people who think his delicate ears can’t hear a little swearing don’t understand that he has been in locker rooms his whole life and can handle it if a coach has a potty mouth.

“I have so much respect for Coach Ryan,” Tebow said. “He’s a coach you want to play for, a coach you want to go out there and do good for. . . . There’s not many NFL locker rooms you’re going to go where you have the cleanest language, so I’m not too worried about that.”

Overall, Tebow thinks he’ll fit in well in Ryan’s locker room.

“Just playing for an organization that has such passionate fans, such a great fan base, so many people that care about them and support them, that definitely means a lot to me,” Tebow said.“I’m just thankful to be a Jet.”

    So what Tebow is saying then was he wasn’t really happy being a Bronco anyway and would have preferred to be a Jet.

    Good to know.

  2. pfii63 says: Mar 22, 2012 9:09 AM

    Well, I had sympathy for Tebow in this whole mess until he CHOSE New York and Rexy-poo over hometown Jacksonville.

    I once thought of him as simply not that great a quarterback. Now I have to conclude that he is stupid as well.

    _________________

    He’s saying this because he heard Rex say that the QB with the prettiest feet will start and Tebow has already polished his toenails.

    I wanted to play for Rex …. & I needed a job.

  5. liltifer says: Mar 22, 2012 9:12 AM

    Tebow’s going to fit in just fine in NY. Plus, Jet fans are already used to an inaccurate QB, so they’ll get used to him fast.

  6. drgfri says: Mar 22, 2012 9:12 AM

    Now this is just getting weird. A year from now I simply cannot see this being anything but a disaster.

    he actually himself stated in his phone press conference last night that he DID NOT have the choice as to where to play. do some homework before you go running your mouth and looking ignorant.

  8. wewantmoretebowandfavrearticles says: Mar 22, 2012 9:12 AM

    Tebow was smart for picking New York over Jacksonville. He will take over as the starting quarterback sooner rather than later because of the boost he gives to the running game.

  9. reiriza says: Mar 22, 2012 9:13 AM

    Tebow went to the Jets for one reason….the money he will make from marketing opportunities will blow any other city out of the water. Not saying he’s greedy, but he is smart for going to NY. The Jets on the other hand are dumb for getting him.

    Tim, “For the Love of GOD” please try not to sound so adolescent,
    “I wanted to play for Coach Ryan ever since I saw Hard Knocks,” Tebow said. “He just seemed like a coach who loves football and is passionate about the game of football. ”
    when you speak about why you chose to pass up an opportunity to “carry” a franchise, for an opportunity to be a backup for a franchise.

    Be careful what you pray for…oh yeah he’s tebow, he will reform jelly belly… this is going to be hilarious with Ryan, Cromartie, Sanchez, Holmes and the Bow!!!!!!!!!! Get your popcorn ready…..

    im glad all of us are alive during this era to witness this madness!

    cant wait for season to start

  15. emma333 says: Mar 22, 2012 9:15 AM

    Tim Tebow just keeps getting stranger and stranger. We in Jacksonville really dodged a bullet on this one. The Jaguars offered more, but Tim obviously chose the entertainment capitol of the world….not surprising.

  18. myspaceyourface says: Mar 22, 2012 9:15 AM

    Tim is going to surface to the top no matter where he ends up. This is just another challenge in his NFL career that he has to over come. He will be fine with or without football.

    Hmmm. A national platform for my charities, with prime-time, network and media centers everywhere, or a team that is about 8 blackouts from moving to L.A. , anyway.

    Cmon, Denver, the altitude aint that high. Its NYC…it never closes..and they got christians there, too.

  20. mightyleemoon says: Mar 22, 2012 9:17 AM

    New York is where Tebow will go to eventually be forgotten about. And, I can’t help but think that’s what he wants. The New York media and fanbase will not obsess over him like they did in Denver. Within the year he will quietly fade into the background noise of New York City.

  21. canesgiants says: Mar 22, 2012 9:18 AM

    he didnt pick the jets. the broncos did. he said in his interview with ny post that he didnt have a choice.

  22. Gordon says: Mar 22, 2012 9:19 AM

    I’m not a Tebow fan, but while the Jags owner wanted him, the GM & coach obviously didn’t. So you can’t fault the guy for picking the Jets over the Jags.

  23. crippled4life says: Mar 22, 2012 9:20 AM

    Great trade, now I can hate the Mules again.

  24. krimou80 says: Mar 22, 2012 9:21 AM

    I dont know if the jets made a good decision by trading for tebow….it will only take M.Sanchez one bad game and the Tebow chants will Take over, Bart Scott is saying “CANT WAIT for another Drama full year for the jets”…..Contagious!

  25. jtowndolfan says: Mar 22, 2012 9:21 AM

    whats the over/under on how many “god dammits” rex gets in before tebow snaps?

  26. rcampore says: Mar 22, 2012 9:21 AM

    Rex is a players coach…he’s too busy wanting to be their best friends and acting like one of them than to actually be a real leader who commands respect.

    Tim Tebow will probably love it there until the turmoil begins if they are not winning.

  27. theandy59 says: Mar 22, 2012 9:21 AM

    I imagine that a big part of his decision to go to NY is the size of the market – at his core, even more than a football player, he’s an evangelist. Where better to spread The News than the largest market in the country? In his mind, this is probably God’s will, to have him travel to the modern day Sodom & Gomorrah and into the belly of the Beast to spread the Word.

    No, that’s not what he said. You read the article, right? I didn’t see anything remotely like “he wasn’t really happy being a Bronco..”

    You should be in the media.

  29. njjeff73 says: Mar 22, 2012 9:22 AM

    The report that Tebow got to choose the Jets or Jags was false. He was asked if he got to choose (before he knew about that report) and said no, he wasn’t given a choice.
    Saying yes would have made Jets fans feel proud that he chose them, so that could have been the easy answer, but apparently it was false.

  30. miamimike1 says: Mar 22, 2012 9:23 AM

    If you really want to have a shot at being a starter for a team why pick the Jets over the Jags? I realize with teams are not 100% on either quarterback but I have to think Sanchez is at this point locked in more so as the starter.Is Tebow at a point where he does not want the spotlight on him as a quarterback? You have a chance to basically go home and have a far better shot at getting the starting position yet you picked the Jets. This is not a knock on the Jets or the Jags just a question on if Tebow is a little beat up mentally with all the critics.

  31. screwstontexans says: Mar 22, 2012 9:23 AM

    “I’m just thankful to be a Jet.”

    A few moments later, he smites himself.

  32. nflfollower says: Mar 22, 2012 9:23 AM

    To those saying he needed a job…..if you think Tim tebow will EVER be hurting for money, you are very sorely mistaken. He could make more in endorsements next year than most people earn in a lifetime. Like it or not, those are the facts….

  33. billsfan1 says: Mar 22, 2012 9:24 AM

    as much as i hate the jets, i will say this.. Ryan backs his players, almost to a fault… But what happened in Denver, was embarrassing. not really a Tebow fan or hater, but he got a raw deal in Denver, with the almighty Elway.

    Whatever happens to Tebow in respect to how he pans out, it will be nice to see him NOT get thrown under the bus by his organization.

    I am not saying Elway had to like tebow but really Elway should be embarrassed by how he handled the whole situation

  34. johnnyhambone says: Mar 22, 2012 9:26 AM

    forget about tebow, forget about the jets, the patriots ,the dolphins, they’re all yesterdays news. the division belongs to the buffalo bills now .

  35. therolandobottom says: Mar 22, 2012 9:26 AM

    Maybe he picked the Jets b/c he like everyone else he has seen what Mark Sanchez is capable of. If he went to Jax it was to sell tickets and not play football. I’m actully happy for the guy since the Broncos decided to back door him. Let him play for a coach and owner that want to utilize him. If anything this will be a very wild ride in Jetland in 2o12.

    If the offers were equivalent, why would the Broncos pick the Jets? The Jags draft earlier.

  37. canesgiants says: Mar 22, 2012 9:29 AM

    still didnt pick the jets

  38. truthhurtstoo says: Mar 22, 2012 9:31 AM

    the division belongs to the buffalo bills now ??

    Please… delusional statement from the bottom of the pile isn’t creditable- settle down until you win something. We’re talking about the jills afterall.

  39. mecheng04 says: Mar 22, 2012 9:31 AM

    I think there’s a pretty simple explanation:

    NY Jets: “Tim, We want you on our team and have plans for you. They don’t involve you starting, but you’ll have an opportunity to be a dynamic playmaker with a special package of plays suited to your strengths.”

    Jags: “Tim, we’d like for you to come and help us sell a bunch of tickets. Our coaches and GM really don’t want you and we don’t have a plan for you. Truthfully, if not for the fact you could sell tickets, we wouldn’t even be offering anything right now.”

  40. zaggs says: Mar 22, 2012 9:37 AM

    He really has no idea what he has gotten himself into? He’ll end up being part of a war in the Jets locker room as soon as Sanchez stumbles and the fans chant for Tebow.

  41. tallguyme says: Mar 22, 2012 9:38 AM

    Jax offered up a better package, both in terms of compensation, draft position, and location. This really doesn’t make one bit of sense.

  42. zaggs says: Mar 22, 2012 9:38 AM

    “spellingcops says: Mar 22, 2012 9:27 AM

    If the offers were equivalent, why would the Broncos pick the Jets? The Jags draft earlier.”

    Probably because the Jets are in a worse situation. They have the better team going by talent, but dysfunctional.

  43. yahmule says: Mar 22, 2012 9:39 AM

    John Elway gave Tim Tebow his choice of teams. Elway even accepted less in compensation from the Jets to accomodate the young man. Of course, his clueless fans, who live fantasy lives where they’re the subjects of persecution constantly, are still willing to cast Elway as a villian.

    It’s a shame Tebow betrayed his loving hometown fans for the mega endorsement money and bright lights of New York. Why would Tim lie to his loyal fans like that? Because the two huge firms that represent his off the field interests told him it was the best move financially?

    Anyway, all the people who adore Tim for his religious principles – and not at all because he’s handsome, muscular and white – should be very confused right now. Interesting that none of the extremely devout black and Latino athletes in recent history have generated similarly widespread devotion from non-sports fans.

  44. modellforprez says: Mar 22, 2012 9:40 AM

    CANT WAIT to see how this plays out while I do like rex’s bravado and how he annoints his squad champs before training camp even starts the restless jets faithful just have one more distraction to deal with. its gonna be so hot firepiss ed’$ hard hat will melt when marsha brady torches them again. one love to the galaxy of queens in between the crime scenes serving patties like fiends. fiends so it seems.

  45. 49erstim says: Mar 22, 2012 9:42 AM

    Show of hands…. Would you rather play for the NY Jets or the LA…I mean Jacksonville Jaguars?… Yeah. I thought as much. Sorry Jags fans. I see the late night Mayflower moving truck in your future.

  46. bullcharger says: Mar 22, 2012 9:45 AM

    Tebow knows that the fans will be calling for Sanchez’s head after a few losses and he will have a chance to start.

    It’s a guaranteed QB controversy.

  47. kevpft says: Mar 22, 2012 9:49 AM

    You know, as strange as this all looks on paper, now that it’s done, I hope he ends up doing really well. Wouldn’t that be the most interesting story of all?

  48. stonedwhitetrash says: Mar 22, 2012 9:55 AM

    This is all leading up to his televangelist career and a mega church where the money will roll in for many years.

  49. southbeachtalent says: Mar 22, 2012 9:58 AM

    So in team meetings is Ryan going to say “ear muffs” to Tebow before he swears?

  50. das14 says: Mar 22, 2012 9:58 AM

    Tebow may not be the best…but geez. He changes things somehow. The ingredients to winning are odd. Whatever he has it does something to the people around him.

  51. cuda1234 says: Mar 22, 2012 9:59 AM

    Wow, the qb who was statistically the worst in the league gets dumped by his team and then hosts a press conference to talk about being third string in a new city? Will all new backup qb’s get their own presser? Did I miss the Dan Orlovsky presser? The Rex Grossman presser? The Charlie Whitehurst presser? The Jason Campbell presser? Can we get transcripts of those events or are the rules different for Tebow, the Kim Kardashian/Paris Hilton of the NFL (just famous for being famous)?

  52. cincyorangenblack says: Mar 22, 2012 10:03 AM

    Poor Tim, he got such a RAW deal! His GM wanted to replace him with a HOF quarterback, you know a guy with a completion % well over 50. People comment like the Broncos were the only team after Manning or that Tim was the only one bothered. If it weren’t for the cap all but but 5ish teams would’ve been after Manning. So drop the raw deal act; he still has a job. Are you really surprised a former QB GM would want to replace Tebow after he saw his passing stats? No shiza sherlock. Come on people.

  57. eaglesnoles05 says: Mar 22, 2012 10:13 AM

    This can help him balance out the glaring F-bomb deficiency in his life.

  58. napstein says: Mar 22, 2012 10:40 AM

    Of course Tebow wanted to go to the Jets — look how well Matt Cavanaugh developed Sanchez.

  59. jeziyo247 says: Mar 22, 2012 10:50 AM

    Are you hearing this broncos /tebow fans, tebow didn’t even want to be a bronco. Its amazing how the truth comes out when you’re no longer on the team. This just proves that once he became a FA would have left the broncos himself. Just because players are drafted to a team doesn’t mean they like them, they don’t have a choice to choose their team in the draft.

  60. thehighhat says: Mar 22, 2012 10:54 AM

    Wasn’t a Jets fan before, but am now. After watching his GM throw him under the bus weekly, I hope for nothing but failure for the Elway regime.

  61. noahbird says: Mar 22, 2012 10:56 AM

    Rex and Tebow both like to talk about things they don’t understand, respectively, winning a super bowl and religion.

  62. snoopyjoecool says: Mar 22, 2012 11:03 AM

    “…I am not saying Elway had to like tebow but really Elway should be embarrassed by how he handled the whole situation”
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    It is getting tiresome listening to people fault Elway. Elway didn’t pick Tebow. Elway fixed a QB problem in Denver that frankly started with Josh McDaniels. He shed the team of the most inaccurate and inconsistent starting QB in the NFL and worked hard to bring a new fan favorite to town to keep the fan base happy in the process. A real shrewd move.

    Its not personal. Do folks realize that starting QBs who posted BETTER stats than Tebow last year were pulled as starters? (ex: Curtis Painter). A winning team builds fans and every GM wants to stack the odds in their favor to build a winning team. Not hope that Denver can again beat the odds and succeed in 2012 with that hugely non-standard offense they had to assemble.

    ===================================
    Goobs, one does not have to be in New York to get marketing oppoutunities in the NFL. Peyton Manning and Drew Brees did just fine with small market teams.

    If Tebow was greedy, he would have chozen Jacksonville over New York. The cost of living in New York and the taxes are a lot higher than in Jacksonville. His religious views don’t exactly fit in well with the locals either in New York.

  64. xx4zu1 says: Mar 22, 2012 11:28 AM

    Maybe Tebow sees this as an opportunity to save Rex from his fetishes.

  65. whatswiththehate says: Mar 22, 2012 11:30 AM

    Let’s be real, Tim Tebow has become the Kim Kardashian of the NFL. He’s a made for tv character. The real Tim Tebow is replaced by a image who bows and who is one step from the Pope. The media, especially ESPN, is the only group who is making so much of of this kid. If you don’t believe watch First Take. It’s like Tim Tebow Central.

    The media wanted Tim in NY because they want Sanchez removed as QB. They know that Tim will not earn his spot as a starting QB but just like in Denver, as soon as the starting QB screws up one time, the media and his rabid will be chanting for him to go in. If the team succeeds, all the credit will go to Tim. If Tim fails, the entire Jet franchise will be blamed.

    I’m sure you folks remember this script, right?

    Something tells me that the folks in Denver are quite happy the Tim Circus has left town.

    Now we have him and there will be nonstop coverage and bafoonery coming from fools like Skip Bayless. And even worst, is the nonstop comparison to athletes who can actually play their position.

    Tim Tebow is all the more proof that the media now owns the NFL.

    Can’t wait for baseball season to begin..

  66. bonniebengal says: Mar 22, 2012 11:30 AM

    It’s been stated over and over that he DID NOT have the opportunity to choose as reported early. That being said, it appears the Jets actually have a plan for him while the Jags coaches didn’t want him. Only the owner did, and only to fill seats. If he had been given a choice, I bet he would choose the place where the coaches wanted him to be there.

  67. radrntn says: Mar 22, 2012 11:34 AM

    in other words there is no greater stage than NYC.

  68. jeziyo247 says: Mar 22, 2012 11:44 AM

    The jets receivers would have to adjust from a righty to a lefty, can’t wait to see how this pan out

  69. yajas says: Mar 22, 2012 12:03 PM

    I have a good likely quote of Tebow praising the lord after being with Rex for 5 minutes but there’s no way it would make it past the censors.

  70. CKL says: Mar 22, 2012 12:08 PM

    @whatiswiththehate,
    I have never seen anyone so obsessed with blaming the media for EVERTHING. Sheesh. Hope you have extra tinfoil hats in your possession because probably go through them on the regular.

    I thought Tebow had commented in another story on here about how he preferred to play in the South again, especially FL. I’m guessing that if he had a choice, he would have chosen Jax (of those two choices).

  71. diamondmo33 says: Mar 22, 2012 2:25 PM

    I’ll never forget the year Tebow gave us in Denver. Now that being said, Excrement happy that we landed the Legend Manning.

    Sux that Tebow landed in NY, he will get eaten alive out there! That was a bad decision!

  73. rsoandb says: Mar 22, 2012 5:01 PM

    One media source reported here in Denver that Jax offered a 4th round pick. Another source reported they had offered a 6th rounder. Regardless, Jets offered 4th and 6th, so off Tebow went. It wasn’t his choice.

  74. devikesfan says: Mar 22, 2012 5:37 PM

    According to Tebow, he wasn’t given a say in the matter.
    If he was, I still think he goes to NY. Even though Jacksonville is his home town, the football people there made it very clear that they didn’t want him.
    Why would he choose to go to a place where he wasn’t wanted?

  75. hnrqoliv says: Mar 22, 2012 6:08 PM

  76. electstat says: Mar 22, 2012 10:19 PM

    I just love all the comments about how stupid Tebow was for picking the Jets. The only thing he picked was when he picked up his luggage after he was traded. It’s not like he was a free agent. He was under contract that didn’t have any rights to pick his team.

    Its not personal. Do folks realize that starting QBs who posted BETTER stats than Tebow last year were pulled as starters? (ex: Curtis Painter). A winning team builds fans and every GM wants to stack the odds in their favor to build a winning team. Not hope that Denver can again beat the odds and succeed in 2012 with that hugely non-standard offense they had to assemble.

    Yes, two-faced liar Elway threw Tim Tebow under the bus for 2 main reasons:
    1) As you said, Tebow was picked by McDaniels to be a Bronco Franchise QB. Elway is not just a liar, he’s also an egomaniac. So he will not allow someone else’s draft to take over his legacy in Denver. Therefore, there is no way Tebow will ever become a Broncos franchise QB as long as Elway is his boss. The sooner Tebow is out of the Broncos organization, the better for him. Manning is not a threat to Elway because Manning’s legacy is with the Colts.
    2) Elway has always been the only STAR in Denver until Tebow came along. I’m sure Elway is not happy with someone else taking his pedestal away. So Tebow has to go even if the Broncos has to pay Manning $96M to do that. What does Elway care? It’s not his money, it’s Pat Bowlen’s money. If Bowlen doesn’t care, why should he?

    A Dense person like you will never understand even if a WINNER is sitting in front of you. Tim Tebow is a BORN WINNER. Let me explain, with his completion%, Tim Tebow should have never done what he did which was leading the dead Broncos to the playoff and even won his first playoff game. But he did because he’s a born winner. A hater like you will say that Broncos won because of the Broncos Defense which is totally BS since it was the same defense that produced a DEAD Broncos team until Tebow took over the starting. His winning energy brought that dead defense back to life, in turn contributing to those wins.
    A lot of you are making fun of the Jets FO, but the difference between the Jets FO and you idiots is that the Jets FO are able to see a WINNER in Tim Tebow. I have no doubts Tim Tebow is a smart addition to the Jets organization because he will help them win games when it counts.
