Teddy Bruschi: Tebow Should Shut Up

According to Teddy Bruschi, Tim Tebow would be doing himself and his teammates a favor by lessening his time with the media.

From ESPN’s “NFL 32”, courtesy of NFL.com’s Around the League Blog:

“Stop talking to the media so much,” Bruschi said last week on ESPN’s “NFL 32”. “You need to disappear, okay, Tim Tebow? You’re not the starting quarterback, it’s Mark Sanchez’s team. I want my voice to come from my head coach and my quarterback — my starting quarterback. That message has to be consistent.  I don’t want all this competition brewing, and every time you speak and anytime you talk about competition or anything like that, you’re twisting things,” he went on. “I want one voice. One quarterback, not two.”

Tebow caused a bit of an uproar with the Denver Broncos during last season when he failed to publicly bemoan a billboard put up by Broncos fans calling for coach John Fox to replace Kyle Orton and make Tebow the starter.  This lead to Tebow being fined by his fellow QBs (Orton, third stringer Brady Quinn and practice squad quarterback Adam Weber). Those fans’ prayers were answered later in the season after a 1-4 start, which lead to Kyle Orton’s release and Tebow’s ascension into the starting role.  If he doesn’t cut back on his media time, Hurricane Tebow will claim Mark Sanchez and his starting job as his latest victims.
