It’s unfair to say that the New York media alone fried the relationship between Tim Tebow and the New York Jets. Sure, the press conference that Tebow had prior to his tenure in the Big Apple was rather excessive, but that is not why the infamous partnership was so strained. Instead, Tebow’s expectations and the Jets’ were entirely different and that is why the two butted heads on numerous occasions.
With that being said, Tebow is now out of town, but not out of the division as the New England Patriots signed the ex-Jets quarterback to a two-year deal on Monday. It hasn’t even been 24 hours and I’m already sick of the way that the Jets have reacted to Tebow being back in the NFL‘s limelight.
The Jets’ faithful are acting like Tebow was some sort of plague that they are all to happy to get rid of and bestow onto another team.
Seriously — why must the team act like it’s too good for the Patriots’ newest quarterback?
Perhaps it’s the annoying New York cockiness or that Tebow hatred is simply spreading, but the Jets have no one but themselves to blame for the “Tebow Experiment” not working. As hard as it may be for a Rex Ryan-led crew, this organization must take the high road and not snicker if Tebow has immediate troubles with the Patriots. No matter what Tebow does with New England, the Pats will remain the more honorable franchise.
So, while the Jets groan about Tebow like every bitter ex-girlfriend in the country, just remember which team will be playing when the calendar turns to January in 2014.
