Big news, Tim Tebow is “excited” again.
This time it is about attending Mark Sanchez’s “Jets West” camp. He plans on absorbing the playbook even more than he has, although it doesn’t have the wildcat packages yet. He accepted Mark’s open invitation, which Tebow says was not different than anyone elses.
“Just the same (invite) that (Sanchez) did to everyone else on the team,” Tebow said. “It’s pretty much open to everyone on the team and I think that’s great.”
Tebow has been working hard in the film room, with coordinator Tony Sparano, in some often intense sessions.
“I feel like I’m doing okay, I’m doing alright I try to hang in there,” Tebow said. “But it’s fun, I think (Tony Sparano) does a good job interacting with players in offensive meetings and sometimes putting them on the spot but it’s great.”
Tim Tebow rightly downplayed an significance to being invited to the camp, saying everyone gets invited. He specifically downplayed the idea that he will eventually succeed Mark Sanchez as the starter, says their relationship has not had problems, and has been great.
“I don’t think so,” he said. “I think we just have a great relationship and we both want to get better as football players, as quarterbacks and to find a way to help this team win football games and that’s what it’s about. “I also think our friendship outside this facility has been great and I think that’s important as well.”
This is a great sign for all involved. Of course, I expected Tebow to handle the questions well, he is an expert. Heck, he could teach a course in handling the media. This can work out if they continue a good working relationship, and they seenm to be off to a great start.
