The blame for all of this is not on Tim Tebow. A lot of the blame has to fall on the Jets organization itself. The Jets love media attention, and whether they admit it or not, that was one of the driving forces to bringing Tim Tebow into town. Therefore, the odds of the Jets limiting his media availability are about as good as they are that I will be the next Jets starting quarterback.
And if you don’t know me, those odds are very, very bad.
However, Tim Tebow could defer to Mark Sanchez with the way he handles the media. As Bruschi said on “NFL 32″, he could say “not today”. Not for every question, just as he is asked about the offense. He could defer to the starting quarterback when talking about the progress of the offense, and similar subjects.
The Jets should also not be giving him full press conferences after practice, as it sends a mixed message. Rex Ryan has become even more vocal about the fact that this is Mark Sanchez’s team, which is great. But, the backup is giving press conferences?
It doesn’t happen. It just doesn’t make sense.
