Tim Tebow gets screwed, Part Deux.
A year ago, even when he was helping the Broncos on an improbable rally into the postseason and winning a playoff game, Tebow was not appreciated by Denver management, led by John Elway, who wanted no part of him leading the franchise into the future.
If that wasn’t bad enough, Tebow’s move to the Jets in a trade last spring has led to an even more painful and frustrating end game: He’s been ignored.
Being ignored is a sentence of indignity far worse than being criticized.
Tebow’s curious NFL career reached its nadir yesterday when Jets head coach Rex Ryan announced he was benching starter Mark Sanchez in favor of third-stringer Greg McElroy for Sunday’s home game against the Chargers.
The benching of Sanchez was a move Ryan had to make based on the fact Sanchez’s confidence is shot.
But why not start Tebow, who was brought here to be Sanchez’s backup?
