Kinda sad really. Looks like the culture of losing is pretty cemented in the Jets locker room. Slauson is garbage, who is he to talk. I would be (happily) surprised if we see Tebow start any game with the Jets this season..

The same attitude that Shaq and other “cool” NBA thugs had about David Robinson. Hmmmm...lemme see...what do Robinson and Tebow have in common?...

To give the guy credit, he's a big strong dude with some speed for his size and he doesn't seem to be afraid of getting hit. The Jets should play him at h-back / TE and see what happens.

Unfortunately they haven't axed for my opinion yet.

I wasn’t able to watch Tebow much, except nationally televised games, as Broncos aren’t shown in our area. Having said that, he seems to have performed quite well. As for this year, he only gets 3 or 4 touches per game, always on running plays, so it is no way to judge.

He’s got a can-do attitude though that seems to get him good results - in that way, reminds me of Doug Flutie.

I don’t think the Jets were ever a good fit for Tebow. Jet’s fans are too cynical

The losers will probably not block hoping Tebow will get hurt. These “players” sound like they learned the game in a youth league that didn’t keep score...everybody wins...MK?

Sanchez’ buds are just circling the wagons around him.

"The 3-6 Jets’ dwindling playoff chances"

Let me guess - it's Tim's fault, not the starters...

Someday the 2012-13 Jets season will be in a textbook about intra-team dissension.

Left guard Matt Slauson, who has repeatedly supported Sanchez

And also repeatedly peeled Sanchez off the ground, since his line does the second worst job in the AFC at preventing sacks.

Slauson said that if Tebow gets the start, he will lay down on the gridiron in protest after every snap.

Rex Ryan responded: "How would that be any different?"

He’s to small. He has a poor throwing arm. He doesn’t inspire his teammates. Sure we are losing but this second/third string quarterback is not the answer said ALL THE EXPERTS.

They were all talking about Brian Sipe 1980 NFL MVP.

lol - Sanchez has proved so successful this season that they decide to crap on Tebow. Makes sense to me. ;o)

1. The rest of the Jets suck. They're looking for someone to blame.

2. The guy they're blaming only gets a few snaps per game.

3. There's a good chance that Tebow kicked their butts while he was winning two National Championships and the Heisman at Florida.

4. There aren't any other Heisman winners on the Jets. (Can you say "envy"?)

5. Tebow will end up in the college football Hall of Fame in South Bend. How many other Jets will?

6. The fans LOOOOOOVE him. That's gotta hurt the big egos who aren't getting cheers when they walk on the field.

7. All sorts of magazines are still doing Tebow cover stories. The only cover story the rest of the Jets get is in "Losers Monthly" and "The Cellblock Gazette".

Why speak out about this if Sanchez is so much better? If he is so great, then it will show on the field. Why does he feel the need to criticize Tim and Greg? I love Tim’s attitude. And Greg is probably the smartest guy in the Jets locker room.

Many (non-football fan) FReepers were convinced that Elway didn't want Tebow to show him up.... so he dumped Tebow.

But then Elway goes out and signs Peyton Manning. So much for that theory.

Elway should be NFL executive of the year.

Maybe the Jets could break the mold a bit by keeping Sanchez as QB but employing Tebow as a tough back who sometimes throws short and medium passes.

JMO. I Never Played The Game. But it seems a waste to pay millions to a guy and then never use him.

How can he improve? They aren’t playing him. Throwing him in for a play a couple times a quarter doesn’t count.

Greg called them out as a team last year. The Jets players are not team players. That has to be strange to both backup QBs who came from real teams in college. Everything at Florida and Bama revolved around team.

“Despite Mark Sanchez’s league-low 52% completion rate and league-high four red-zone interceptions, the players believe he should remain the starter over Tebow, who has accounted for only 132 total yards and averaged seven offensive snaps per game.”

Sounds like Tebows teammates are a bunch of losers.

What strikes me most about this article is the utter lack of class and team discipline. You simply DO NOT talk trash about your teammates outside of The Family, even if the “trash” is true.

In fairness, this article only quotes two Jets players, and one of them was a particular poltroon for remaining anonymous. But that’s two too many. The coaches need to kick some butts and, IMO, suspend the player who spoke on the record for one game.

When I think NJ jats and “terrible”, Sanchez is the usually the first thing that comes to mind.
