Tim Tebow's season-long frustration bubbled to the surface Wednesday when the third-string quarterback took umbrage with all the character body blows he has absorbed in the past few days. Tebow’s pristine image as a team-first guy was stained by the perception that he told Rex Ryan to no longer use him in Wildcat packages after Greg McElroy leapfrogged over him on the depth chart to become the Jets’ new starter.
“You work your whole life to build a reputation,” Tebow said. “Then people try to bring you down when they don’t understand even what happened. It’s disappointing. You just want to express your side of the story.”
