Jets quarterback Tim Tebow struggled on Saturday night, as did the entire offense in a 26-3 loss to the Giants. And the Giants said after the game that they could see Tebow was getting frustrated — which Tebow acknowledged.
“I was probably just frustrated because we want to get on the same [page] and have it run smooth,” Tebow said, via the Star-Ledger.
Giants defensive tackle Carlton Powell said he and his teammates could see that frustration, and Powell said he tried to add to that frustration by getting under Tebow’s skin with some post-play comments.
“You can tell by his body language,” Powell said. “Obviously, we were getting after him a little bit. And I guess they weren’t holding up their protection so some mistakes were being made so I saw him getting mad so I said a little something to him. He kind of looked at me like he wanted to say something, but he didn’t really say nothing though.”
Powell admits he said something to Tebow that was “not very appropriate,” and he said he thought he Tebow was growing angrier as the game wore on.
“The frustration was written all over him,” Powell said. “He was already upset so it didn’t take that much.”
After a loss in which the Jets’ offense averaged just 2.6 yards a play, everyone on the offense has plenty of reasons to be upset.
