it´s...All about Me-bow

New York Post, by Mark Cannizzaro

Original Article

Posted By:fleetusa, 12/24/2012 9:50:39 AM

Here is what we learned yesterday about the Jets with Greg McElroy as their starting quarterback: Nothing. Here is what we learned about starter Mark Sanchez, who was benched in favor of McElroy: Maybe this Jets’ mess hasn’t been his fault after all. And here is what we learned about backup Tim Tebow, who was inexplicably passed over as the starter when Sanchez was benched: He’s mad as hell and he’s not going to take it anymore. So he didn’t. Tebow, it was revealed following the Jets’ latest loss — yesterday’s lackluster 27-17 defeat to the Chargers

Tebow should be docked for one game´s pay for such a baby temper tantrum.

Tebows a competitor who doesn´t want to lose his edge rotting on a bench.Giving him menial plays to run is doing something for the sake of doing something.Tebows up against a media and fellow players who don´t think the football field is a church,so he´ll never get a fair chance.

Ridiculous column. Tebow has displayed the patience of Job. Get out of there, Tim. You can´t win (or even play) in that cesspool.

Really childish column. Why did the Jets trade for Tebow? They treated him like dirt all year. He essentially never played. The Jets are a very bad team with a bad coach. At least Tebow is interesting to watch. Tebow was way more patient with the Jets than he had to be.

Actually, as a person I like Tebow. I just don´t think he fits into the NFL which is really a passers league now. I think he will be out of the NFL next year.

Tebow signing with the Jets was a major mistake on both sides, easily foreseeable. It disrupted the team, did nothing for Tim in that hellhole market and absolutely destroyed Mark Sanchez.

Still, it was nice to see that pansy Cromartie get spun like a top yesterday.

Tebow was simply a gimmick to convince season ticket holders to renew for 2012 season. The stadium sharing Giants had just won the Super Bowl, so the Jets needed something to sell expensive tickets, with mandatory exhibition games, to Jet fans who were born yesterday. So, lots of media hype was generated by Teebow acquisition, with Joey from Queens calling into sports radio to rave about how Teebow would make the Jets instant winners.

Teebow will be traded to a Florida NFL team for a 4th round draft choice, and will be used again to sell season tickets. The Jets owe their other QB, Sanchez, $8 million, and will eat a large share of this in order to trade him for still another QB of the future.

Tim Tebow deserves so much better than this. I only hope that some hidden good comes to him as a result of going through this year. At the very least, he´ll learn some good life lessons and have a better sense of what it means to be "afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed."

Good for Tebow. He got a year in NY to see what a hell hole it is, got paid a lot of money to sit, stayed healthy, and can say he didn´t contribute to the mess that the Jets put on the field. Hope he makes out OK with another team.

I´ve changed my mind - if Andrew Luck can have a great season with the Colts, whatever voodoo they used with him, could be used with Tebow and Tebow can play in this league after all.

For all the criticism of his passing style, Tebow knows how to win football games. And he´s a great role model for kids. Everybody knew New York would eat him alive and spit him out. No surprises there. He´ll find a spot in the NFL and live to fight another day.

I think this reporter has things backwards. He´s dissing a quarterback who doesn´t get a chance to play for not playing but should be writing about a front office who brings a player in, gets all kind of publicity and then sits him on the bench and lets Sanchez run the ship a ground.(Who could forget the BUMBLE against the Pats?) Sounds like a franchise that´s in good hands to me.

Q: What do you call a failed writer?

A: A sports writer.

Q2: What do you call a failed sportswriter?

A2: mark cannizzaro.

"This shows that, as genuinely nice a guy as Tebow is, he can play the same insidious political games other players do behind the scenes."

Somebody should take away cannizzaro´s thesarus before he hurts himself, or at least show him how to use it.

Insidious? Tim Tebow? Hardly. The guy has simply had enough B.S. from the nasty little pipsqueaks who have been badgering him since he found himself in the spotlight.

Murder your preggers girlfriend and then waste yourself in front of a coach? The sportspuds will crawl all over each other to give you a loving kissy-break.

Get bloody drunk and roll your rig, killing a passenger? Again, the sportsclowns will circle their wagons around you, offering their "support."

Stand up to the hypocrisy that has been swirling around you since before you even took a snap in the NFL? Jerkwads like cannizzaro practically fall off the toilet in abject phony outrage.

Screw these no-talent pencilpushers, and screw the NFL too. Tim Tebow is a straight-up guy, and the simple fact is that the little dirtballs who make a living off of men like Tebow have a hard time with straight-up guys. The Tebows of the world make them feel jealous and embarrassed.

HOPEFULLY...we will get Tebow back here in Florida where he is loved and appreciated. He IS a great player if given the chance. He proved himself with the Gators and with Denver. I don´t blame him for sitting out these last games. Why should he put himself out there and maybe get hurt. I wouldn´t put it past some members of his team to let that happen. What a bunch of Scum! They should be ashamed of the way they treated Tebow. I hope he has another chance some day to beat the snot out of that team OR any Team that Rex Ryan might be coaching. He certainly should be FIRED for the job he did this year as coach of the Jets!

The Jets did not honor their intentions and out of frustration, and essentially benched Tebow when he arrived. Usually when the starter is injured or falters, it would be Tebow´s job to go in. It appears the Jets wanted to look at #3 like it was a pre-season game. That has to hurt anyone.

This isn´t the first time this has happened, and if you want a perfect example of a "team player" look no further than the Texas Rangers´ Micheal Young. He played his heart out for them, and was moved to 2nd base to make room for Alfonso Soriano, then moved from shortstop to make room for Elvis Andrus, then moved to third base for Adrian Beltre with a nothing but a team attitude.

Now he is playing for the Phillies. It happens. Being a "team player" is really the only way, until management or coaches play with things and cause you to doubt why they are in charge.

Great writing everyone, especially #22... just not headline or article... and agree with most of you above, it was a gutsy, smart move benching himself...

Loved when announcers said how empty the Jets´ stadium was yesterday... and those there kept calling for Tebow!

Firmly believe Tim´s not playing all season at QB was payback [revenge?] by Ryan, for Tim leading Broncos over Jets last Nov and Tim´s 20-yard TD run to seal the deal... [Since the seats were already sold... Jets´ initial reason... $$$]

Tim is a Giant of a man... literally, saw him up close Father´s Day at Qualcomm with 27,000 others as he and Dr. David Jeremiah lead us in worship...

Ryan... more of a mouse...

Lets see. The Heisman trophy, taking an NFL team that could not win with receivers that could not catch a cold, to six straight wins, 7-2, beating Pittsburgh and making a joke out of the Jets, all prove that this guy is a lousy qb. Anyone can see that.

Year after year Ryan pronounces he will win the SB and looks like a fool. This preseason he says he has the best team he ever coached. His qb goes from bad to wrose and he keeps sayng he believes in him. This all proves the Jets problem is the qb who never got to play.

The next time Tebow is on the field with the Jets they will look even worse than the first.

Both Ryan and the NY libtard soprts writers treated Tim like a fourth class floor sweeper. Tim did exactly the right thing. Now, they want to curse him even more because he didn´t lift his head, grin a beaming smile, lick their boots and say, "Why, thankee Mr. Ryan fo da chance to proove m´sef again. Sho´nuff wite o´ya."

I have seen these girls play bad,but c´mon

line girls are racist!! You don´t like white
quarterbacks.
Don´t tell me that isn´t true because it is either you are a racist or you are very

It is one of the two either way you are made to look very bad and a very poor excuse for a human being!!

Let´s see....The Jets pick Tebow up as a QB, and then refuse to play him as a QB.

Why would he be angry?

Screw the Jets. They´re a trash team, coached by a moron. If your starting QB is failing, give your backup a chance. Don´t just give him playing time in gimmick formations where everyone is keying on him. All you´re doing is trying to get him injured.

We don´t know what the Jets promised Tebow but I bet it wasn´t sitting on a bench for a full season.
Best thing for Tim is to be traded and see if he can fit in fulltime in the NFL.

Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings. The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of

Some time back, whenever a big racial controversy erupted, I trained myself into the habit of reading about it at FoxNews.com, just for the unbelievable comment threads. Let’s put it this way: If my friends and I went out to a bar and started playing a “let’s write the racist FoxNews.com comment thread” drinking game, our efforts couldn’t begin to approach what I read there.I wasn’t alone. Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.
