It became apparent, as the season wore on, that the Jets simply were not going to trust Tim Tebow to throw the ball. In fact, it became apparent they didn’t trust him to do anything but simply run straight up the middle or protect the punter. That fact wasn’t lost on the players, either, Seth Walder of the New York Daily News reports.
“It got to the point where Tim’s going into the game, it’s going to be a power,” safety LaRon Landry said Wednesday on ESPN. “I would have loved to see him throw the ball a little more.”
Landry admitted that he thought Tebow was going to be more involved. Tebow completed just six passes with the Jets in 2012, and the Daily News reported during the season that both Tebow and the team will attempt to end their relationship at the end of the year.
