Tim Tebow Was Right To Ask Out Of Wildcat Package
Normally, I love to make athletes accountable. However, I simply can’t do that when it comes to Tim Tebow and the circus known as the New York Jets. He went to the team and he was promised a chance to play. That never seemed to work and after being passed over for the starting job, Tebow decided to protest. He asked out of the Wildcat package on Sunday and I don’t blame him one bit.
New York Jets backup quarterback Tim Tebow was so frustrated when the starting job was conferred upon Greg McElroy early last week that he told the coaches he didn’t want to be used in any Wildcat packages Sunday against the San Diego Chargers, multiple Jets sources told ESPNNewYork.com.
I would love to be mad at Tebow for this but I simply can’t. He was never given a proper shot to show what he could in NY. He may have been beyond brutal in practice but the guy apparently wins football games. Giving him a start would not have hurt anyone. If he was bad, you start McElroy in Week 17. It is not that hard to follow. Instead, the coaching staff left him out to dry.
You will hear about this a lot in the coming days. Tebow is almost certainly on a new team next season and this might cloud that picture. Someone will see this as a brat not getting his way but I see this as a good form of protest. If you won’t give him a chance to start, don’t expect him to be part of your gimmicks.

raining camp is underway, which is a welcome sign for most. But for some, I'm sure they wish these first few days would have gone a little differently.
