Rex says Tebow played Brady on scout team, gave tips on McDaniels

Tim Tebow may play some running back on Sunday in New England, and that’s not the only way he could help the Jets beat the Patriots.

According to Jets coach Rex Ryan, Tebow has already done valuable work in practice this week: Tebow played the role of Tom Brady for the Jets’ scout team to prepare the defense, and Tebow also provided information about the play-calling tendencies of Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, who coached Tebow in Denver.

“I thought we had a good week of practice,” Ryan said. “Obviously, it’s hard to simulate their tempo, their no-huddle, how precise Brady is, and those types of things, but we did our best. Tebow had a good grasp playing under Josh McDaniels and being drafted by Josh, so he did a nice job at quarterback for us, I thought. The scout team did well. We did our best out there. I thought our preparation was good.”

Asked whether picking Tebow’s brain for intelligence about McDaniels was part of his preparation, Ryan confirmed that it was.

“Absolutely, we did that with Tim,” Ryan said.

We’ll see if it pays off on Sunday.

  1. Seriously? This is news-worthy? Team (Broncos, Jets) can win games in spite of Tim Tebow, but not because of him. I don’t understand how a guy who barely deserves to be in the NFL gets so much attention just because he likes to make money off his religion.

  2. It’s very interesting to me that Tim Tebow, a QB who has thrown three passes, gets mentioned on this site everyday and gets mentioned on ESPN every other minute…. WHY?

  3. Bwahahaha If Tebow could imitate Brady and do it well he would be the starting quarterback…. Give me a break. Lets see how well the D does against the real thing….

    Dude … Are seriously asking that question? Tim Tebow easily has the biggest love-hate following among NFL fans and beyond. Without a doubt, an online story about him easily gets more click-thrus than anyone else–except perhaps RG III.

  5. So what Rex is syaing is that the Jets are horribly underprepared to play the game tomorrow?

  6. So they have a guy that can’t throw the ball play the part of one of the best passers the league has ever seen, what next Rex? Bart Scott playing the role of Larry Fitzgerald when they practice for the Cards.

  7. Now that’s a laugher, one of the best QB’s ever being plated by a guy who can’t throw. I suppose the Jets aren’t looking for a real practice.
    Is it possible that Tebow’s a righty?

  8. I’m a Pats fan and some of these comments are silly. All scout teams use one of their QBs to run the plays of the opposing offense, so that’s nothing strange. I mean Mallett is not Peyton but he was the one who played him on scout team the week the Pats were going to face Denver. That said, I think McElroy might have been better suited to this duty because he is more accurate of a passer.
    Also, if Tebow knows McDaniels’ tendencies, it would be nice if he informed us. We Pats fans usually have no clue what dude is thinking half the time, too cutesy with the calls sometimes.

    I wonder when the Tim Tebow high will start to disappear?
    ——————————————————–
    Maybe if he’s given a chance and fails? He took over a 1-4 team last year and went to the playoffs. Yeah, yeah, you’re going to say that was in spite of him and not because of him. His clutch play was crucial in every one of those wins. Yes, other factors matter too, but so does the quarterback.

    Okay, I’m done – let the hate-fest resume.

  10. While these Tebow jokes are hilarious, and Tebow is just a big joke himself, being the practice squad QB is more about mimicking pre snap timing, and how someone moves in the pocket then it is how they throw.

  11. “We Pats fans usually have no clue what dude is thinking half the time, too cutesy with the calls sometimes.”

    I disagree. I think outside of the Cardinals game McDaniels has done a fine job. The execution is what has been lacking at times. I’m sure the Patriots will start executing better, they always improve as the season goes on.

  12. This makes absolutely no sense. Tebow was with McDaniels for one season three years ago and was so bad that McDaniels refused to play him. Also, Tebow is one of the worst qb’s in NFL history and Brady is one of the best. Unless Timmy starts banging supermodels (of the female variety), there’s no comparison.

  13. With Tebow’s knowledge of McDaniel’s playbook and coaching tendancies, the Patriots should do themselves a favor and forfeit the game. No need to risk unnecessary injury and humiliation!

  14. Only Rex Ryan could say this with a straight face. If he actually believes Tebow pretending to be Tom Brady will help the Jets defense prepare, then Rex is delusional! I bet most Jets players and fans cringe every time Rex opens his mouth.

  15. With Tebow running the scout team it’s no wonder Cromartie thinks he’s the best corner in the league.

  16. I don’t understand why Tebow doesn’t just come to terms with the fact that he isn’t that great of a NFL Caliber QB.

    Why doesn’t he try something like maybe RB or TE? He’s a big guy, that can move and is seemingly hard to tackle for some.

    He wants to help teams win, why doesn’t he play a position where he can actually contribute?

  17. Here’s what I remember about McDaniels play calling from his denver days….run, wr screen, wr screen, punt. Sprinkled in with the every now and then immaculate play. (See brandon stokley). But any way around it, when it comes to Sunday. Belichick has final say on plays, while McDaniels huddles up in his wind pants taking care of the one tool that has gotten him where he is. Regardless of that tho, tebow giving input probably goes as far as “he likes to throw the ball coach, praise little baby Jesus in his gold fleece diapers that he likes to throw the ball. Aw shucks coach” lol

  18. How much info can Tebow give? I mean they had a system designed special for Tebow in Denver. As for tendencies, the Pats weapons are completely different from what McDaniel had in Denver. So if it is a 3rd and 2 he could very well have Brady throw a deep post oppose to have Tebow grind out those two yards.

    Tebow playing Brady sounds a bit funny, but it really is more of them having someone to go through the motions with the jets defense of what the Pats tend to do on offense. They do the same stuff on NFL live.

  19. He said this in his presser 4 days ago. You had nothing else to write tonight so your backup plan is to just throw whatever Rex said out there to get some Jet haters to login and comment. It so transparent and lazy.

  20. @lockoftheweak

    Snookie rides again. !!! She slips her hands under the center’s butt, grabs his slong, and throws up all over him, Jets score ! Then Sal, Vinny, Tony and Carmine egg Brady and gangbang Giselle.News at 11

    In other news, Trump offers to tear down Metlife Stadium to build a golf course with a dozen condos and casino. Jets move to LA and are the toast of the town , with Tom Cruise declaring…”Tim Tebow can walk on water… just like me if he hooks up with Scientology

  21. Tebow played the role of Tom Brady for the Jets’ scout team to prepare the defense…. Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha….

  22. Rex: so what kind of offense does McDaniels run?

    Tebow: he will usually start off with two runs, at least one of which is a QB option. On the third play he might let you heave one done field to get a pas interference call or maybe some kind of miracle play. However, normally he’d punt after that.

    Rex: won’t he throw the ball more than that?

    Tebow: no, no, no. Not at all. Passes would bounce into the dirt, sail pass wide open receivers and often end up in the hands of the defense. So no. He won’t call very many pass plays. The key to his offense is to hang around long enough so that you might get really lucky in the last two minutes and pull a win out of your rear end

    Rex: hmmm. His offense sounds like mine.

  23. Tim Tebow playing the role of Tom Brady is like Pee Wee Herman playing the role of John F. Kennedy.

    As John McEnroe would say, “You can’t be serious!”

  24. Yes, as a Jets fan, Rex does brag, talk too much……..etc., but…

    What’s more interesting to me, why you Jets haters mention in droves everything Jets? Live your team’s losses vicariously through the Jets?
    Jets are in your heads more than the Pats are in the big head of Rex.
    Equally pathetic.
