Don't get Tim Tebow wrong.
As one of the most competitive athletes you'll ever see at any level of any sport, he'd like nothing more than to play a more significant role in the Jets' offense as they continue down the stretch in a long shot bid for the playoffs. But even if he never takes a snap the rest of the season, there won't be the kind of profound sense of disappointment and frustration you might expect.
"I don't judge my success in life as a football player," Tebow told me Thursday in the Jets' locker room. "I don't judge my self-worth as a football player. Football is something I love. It's a fun career deal, but it's not what I want to do with my life, because I see football as a game."
