Ok Tim Tebow fans, here are some quotes from his press conference after the Jets’ Thursday workout, courtesy of the team website:
First, about working with Mark Sanchez:
It’s been a lot of fun. We’re out there every day working extremely hard, trying to push each other, trying to have fun. Greg [McElroy]‘s been doing a great job, Matt [Simms] and G.J. [Kinne] have been working hard. We’ve been enjoying it.
On learning a new offense as a group:
I think it’s good because we’re all on the same page. We are all learning every day, installing new things every day and all trying to help each other grasp this new offense and trying to execute it out there. It’s new for everyone. We’re all trying to understand it. I think it helps, because all of us are on the same page with things.
Is he worried about blocking on special teams?
Not really. I don’t think it will be too bad. Kind of get out of the way and run down there. It probably won’t be too hard.
On how competitive practice has been:
Absolutely, it had a competitive vibe. It was a lot of fun. I feel like we have a very good pace, getting in and out of the huddle and getting a lot of plays off, which is something that Coach Sparano stresses. So we want to have a good tempo. I feel like we were very competitive. We were trying to make plays, trying to execute. A lot of guys are learning the offense for the first time. It’s understandable if some of the different flaws or mistakes or mental errors here and there because it is the first time a lot of us have ever run these plays. It’ll constantly just get better every time.
