Tim Tebow is clearly a media darling. He is wonderful with the press, and the press loves him. Take a look at this article from Joe Caporoso of turnonthejets.com
Here are some of the highlights:
First off, Cavanaugh made himself look foolish by praising Tebow’s mechanics after criticizing Sanchez’s development, considering he has overseen that very development. It doesn’t take a football savant to see how far Tebow’s mechanics still need to go, so even if Cavanaugh was truly pleased with them it was odd to pair it with the Sanchez criticism.
Expect a steady stream of pro-Tebow and anti-Sanchez articles in the coming months. I can promise you a Daily News article this summer quoting unnamed sources that Tebow is outperforming Sanchez in practice and will soon take over as the starter. I can promise if Sanchez has one poor game, there will be rumors from those unnamed sources claiming that Sanchez will be benched or is one bad quarter away from being benched.
Joe is right on the ball here. None of us are sure what QB coach Cavanaugh is talking about with Tebow’s mechanics. I’m sorry, but we all know those need to improve. The media is posing this as a controversy, by all of this leaking information that is pro-Tebow, and anti-Sanchez, and it needs to stop.
It just isn’t necessary.
