NFL Media Member Tedy Bruschi Wants New York Jets QB Tim Tebow to Stop Talking to the Media

How does an NFL player who gets hounded by the media every single day stop answering questions?

That’s a riddle that I’m trying to wrap my head around, after former New England Patriots linebacker turned NFL analyst Tedy Bruschi criticized New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow for talking too much.

Bruschi (who, to his credit, has been very fair as an analyst when talking about his former AFC East rival) believes that Tebow needs to tell the media to back off, but is that really feasible?

Tebow has been a media magnet since he was 18 years old, and he’s gotten very good at saying a whole lot of nothing when he’s asked the same things over and over and over again.

It’s not all Tebow’s fault that the media is obsessed with him. He has been a good, supportive teammate of Mark Sanchez ever since the trade from the Denver Broncos that sent Tebow to New York.

It’s easy for Bruschi to say that Tebow can simply say “I’m not speaking today,” but then every single top story on Bruschi’s own network will be “Tebow Not Talking??” and spun into more ridiculousness.

It’s not Tebow’s fault that he gets asked the same dull questions every day. The media are the ones who need to tone it down, not the other way around.

That being said, a lot of what Bruschi said is reasonable, although maybe not so realistic. Yes, it is Sanchez’s team, and sure, Tebow needs to respect that. But the media needs to respect that just as much, if not more.

I honestly don’t think Tebow has an agenda to create controversy in the mainstream media. The media, for many reasons, is enamored with him, and they want it to be a circus so they can sell papers and get ratings.

Tim Tebow is not perfect, and that goes for his quarterbacking as well as his persona. But he can help the Jets win football games, and at the end of the day, that’s all that matters.
