Quarterback Tim Tebow supposedly wanted to come to New York because he thinks he can wrest the starting job from Mark Sanchez. But Tebow surely won’t ever say that.
Instead, Tebow says that he’s “not sure” he’ll be a starter. Ever.
That’s what he told ESPN 1050 on Friday, along with more of his usual non-controversial stuff. “I don’t know what the future holds, but I know who holds my future,” Tebow said. “That’s something that has always given me peace and comfort. That’s why I don’t have to worry about the future. I can just worry about today and worry about becoming better as a football player and a person.”
Tebow compared his current situation to his freshman year in Florida, when Tebow played sparingly behind Chris Leak. The Gators won a national title that year.
Tebow also applauded teammate Antonio Cromartie, who spoke out against trading for Tebow before the deal went down.
“It’s great because he had his quarterback’s back,” Tebow said. “That’s what you want. You want guys that are supporting your quarterback. I think that’s great, and I commend him for doing that.”
But does Tim truly support his starting quarterback? If he does, Tebow should say as little as possible moving forward. Like every other backup quarterback.
