The New York Jets aren’t even in the playoffs, yet Tim Tebow continues to find ways to make headlines as the backup quarterback has become quite the popular topic over the last couple of days as his brother, Peter, decided to take a shot at the Denver Broncos following their loss to the Baltimore Ravens on Saturday.
After hanging on to a seven-point lead in the final minute of the game, Denver watched their playoff dreams slip away after Joe Flacco found Jacoby Jones for a 70-yard touchdown pass to tie the game before Baltimore went on to win in overtime and advance to the AFC Championship. With the win, the Ravens earned a trip to Foxboro for a rematch with the New England Patriots in what should be another interesting battle–but that story is for a different time.
Sure, it’s frustrating to see a team like the Broncos lose in the Divisional Round, but why is it necessary for Peter to take a shot at his former team? Peter can be mad at John Elway and company all he wants, but the truth is the NFL is a business at the end of the day and replacing a quarterback like Tebow with Peyton Manning is a no brainer every time.
Tebow had a good run in 2011 when he helped the Broncos reach the playoffs and while it’s a shame things didn’t work out in Denver, it’s time to move on Peter and not hold a grudge against your brother’s former organization.
