You can say a lot about Tim Tebow.  One thing you can definitely say, is that the New York media will not be a problem for him.  He is a master at handling any question, fielding any topic.  For all the Tebow fans out there, I wanted to give you some of Tebow’s recent comments to the media on various topics:

Tebow on Tony Sparano’s approach and coaching style:

“He’s a great coach and very passionate about football and very passionate about helping young men, encouraging them,” Tebow said.  “He’s a great coach.  He knows football very well (and is)very intense and passionate about coaching which is awesome.  He loves it.   He loves ball and he loves being around guys who love ball and it’s fun to have a coach like that.”

On how he will handle people trying to drive a wedge between him and Sanchez:

“I think we just have a good friendship and really (we) just (can’t) let outside circumstances get in the way of our friendship or how we handle each other,” Tebow said.  “I think that’s the cool thing about being friends is-you know, we can talk.  We have an open relationship and obviously (being) teammates, friendship comes before what other outside people say.”

On starting new in New York as a backup, after leading Denver to the playoffs:

“It’s a new opportunity and that’s how I look at it,” Tebow said.  “It’s exciting to be around new coaches, innovative coaches.  Being around Coach Ryan, he’s a lot of fun to be around.   Being around a great team-it’s been very successful the last few years, I know, because I had to play against them two times over the last few years.  You know what you’re getting when you play the Jets.  And it’s fun to be on a team that’s a physical team.  You know when you line up that we are going to be a team that’s going to be tough and physical and hopefully teams don’t necessarily like going against that too much.”

See?  Whether you like the way he plays the game or not, you have to love the way he handles the media.  No matter how they come at him in New York, he will go through with flying colors.  No doubt.

And that is half the battle in NY.
