New York Football Players Offer Mixed Reactions To Tebow Trade

NEW YORK (WFAN) – Everybody seems to have an opinion on the Jets’ highly publicized acquisition of quarterback Tim Tebow, and those opinions aren’t just limited to broadcasters, writers and fans.

New York football players took to Twitter on Wednesday to offer their thoughts on the addition, and the sentiments ranged from exuberance to uncertainty to criticism.

Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie openly questioned the move, tweeting, “Y bring [Tebow] in when we need to bring in more Weapons for @Mark Sanchez let’s build the team around him. We already signed to 3 year ext.”

Cromartie’s teammate, guard/tackle Damien Woody, didn’t concur with Cromartie’s analysis.

“Here…..We…..Go!!!!!!” Woody tweeted upon first hearing the news. He later commented on the effect that Tebow’s arrival will have on New York City, tweeting, “Linsanity & Tebow in the same city…..can NYC handle this?!?!”

Reaction wasn’t just limited to Jets players, however. A Giant decided to offer his two cents, as well.

Glad he’s man of God because NY won’t be easy,” Giants cornerback Terrell Thomas, who was recently re-signed by the G-Men, tweeted.

The Broncos received fourth- and sixth-round draft picks from the Jets, while New York got Tebow and a seventh-rounder.

    If Tim Tebow had his way, he would be in Jacksonville so give him a break.
    All he is going to do is come to the Jets and be the best football player that
    he can be because Tim Tebow is a Class Act On and Off the Field. So wait
    and see how the trade pans out and don’t trash Tim because like I said if he
    had his druthers he would be a Jag. Today.

    I was hoping Tim would go to the Jacksonville Jags, But Elway holding true
    to form for the JERK that he has always been screwed Tebow twice. First
    telling Tim that he would be the starter next year and he would work with him
    on his passing game then going after Peyton and trading him. He knew that
    Tim wanted to go to Jacksonville his home town so he didn’t give him a choice
    and sent him to the Jets. I have always like Peyton and think he is one of the
    five all time great QBs in the NFL but it would serve Elway right if for what ever
    reason Peyton didn’t work out and Elway got canned and he had to watch Tebow excell with the Jets from his living room at home.

    They need to fire Tannenbaun. Then fire him again. Then get rid of everyone in the Jet front office. Goodell needs to do what Roselle did with the Giants when he proposed George Young as GM for the Giants. GET PEOPLE WHO KNOW WHAT THE HELL THEY ARE DOING!!! This team is the joke of the league, if not of all sports. What a disgrace!

      Are you aware that when this team starts winning next season and defenses can’t defend the offense that Tebow is going to bring…YOU are going to be the biggest fan of the system. You know why? Because it’s winning games.

    Bringing in Tebow just puts the capital “D” on this dysfunctional team. They need help in so many other areas. This will not help Sanchez or his confidence, especially if he’s having a rough game. The fans will be merciless. It’s not easy being a Jet fan. Thought we were finally on the right track, now it seems we’re taking 2 steps forward, then 3 back.

    Everyone is worried about Sanchez reaction.Hey Mark just a word with you .This is New York not fluffy California you are being paid well .Perform. Maybe spend more time on the practice field and less time with 15 yr old girls. Noboby cares about your ego you little fluff. I am so glad Tebow is a JET winning is an attitude that we need

  • lou

    Hey Boomer Man Up go home and watch the Super Bowl that you supposedly claim you never saw when Montana beat you down .You big baby Now your siding with Cromartie the biggest baby Tebow is here so Deal with it
