The press conference just ended, introducing Tim Tebow to the media. Here are some quick thoughts:
- Very humble guy. Clearly shows he is team first, not self first. At least that is what he says.
- He in fact was given some input as to where he wanted to go, said his relationship with the coaches was better with the Jets than the Jags, and is what led him to prefer the Jets.
- In response to the need for the big press conference, he mentioned that the brass of the Jets had the idea, nothing to do with him.
- He talked about that he and Mark Sanchez will be “better together than apart”. Talked about how they text and talk quite a great deal and are good friends.
- Feels he will earn the respect by hard work.
- Make no mistake, he is here to play. Whenever he was asked about his role on the team, he talks about going to compete, and whatever his role is, he will work to “expand that role”. He wants to play as any football player will.
Will come back with more detailed opinion later on tonight.
Please comment as to your impressions of Tebow following the press conference.
