Rex Ryan not happy about his players criticizing Tim Tebow

New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan told the media that he was very disappointed to hear about anonymous players dogging out quarterback Tim Tebow to the media.

“If you’re going to make a negative comment, that’s fine,” Ryan said on Wednesday, per the New York Daily News. “We never say that it always has to be a bed of roses. But again, put your name to it. I think people will respect you a lot more.”

Ryan says he addressed the situation with his team.

“Did I address it? I absolutely addressed it,” Ryan said. “Because I think it’s a cowardly thing. If you’re not going to put your name to it, I think that’s about as cowardly of a thing as there is. I even mentioned that. I said, ‘Look, if…’ Well, I don’t want to get into specifics of what I said. But I did address it with our football team. I absolutely did.”

Ryan insist nothing will come between his team.

“If you’re searching for things to try to drive a wedge through the team and all that… my thing is that I believe in this team,” Ryan added. “I believe this team is like this and will continue to be like this and maybe even come tighter. I’m confident that that will be a case.”

Ryan believes this incident could draw his team closer together.

“I think this team is coming together,” Ryan said. “Could this galvanize it? I don’t know. Maybe so. This team, in my opinion, is not going to be pulled apart by outside people. I think inside the walls we are going to (close). That’s what’s going to give us an opportunity. If I’m wrong on that, obviously that’s going to be a different issue. I don’t believe that. I believe this team is coming together. We’ll see if there’s no cracks in the armor or whatever, we’ll find that out. Maybe we’re not there right now, but I believe we will be.”

    Tebow you remind me of Terry Collins, I really thought he was a good quarter, but he must have make someone high up mad, because even when he showed he was the better quarterback, he was always benched,and passed aroune. I thought you showed how good you where when you came in and won games for the Bronco’s when the three starter before you couldn’t win. Now you are on the Jets, and Sandches had an off year, and I think it is wrong to bench you and not even give you a chance. It is time for you to move on like Moon did, and then come back and show all the NFL they were wrong, and I know they are wrong now. It is your choice Hang in there or move on. GOOD LUCK

    Ask how many games he really started and if he was given a chance to prove himself. Why try to sign up the guy and then not utilize him in different situations. What a waste!! I hope somebody in the NFL picks him and and he does well.
