Could the New York Jets be trying to stop Tebow-mania?
It sure looks like it. After his major press-conference last week, introducing himself to the New York media, Tim Tebow hasn't had another major media event. And there's a reason for that. According to ProFootballTalk, the Jets want to limit Tim Tebow's off-the-field endeavors.
The Jets have reportedly already said no to Tebow doing a weekly radio appearance on a New York radio station, that has contracts with Mark Sanchez and Eli Manning. However, the Jets can't technically prevent Tebow from doing media appearances; they can only advise him not to do it. But if he wants to do a weekly radio appearance, he can do it.
Tebow, it seems however, is following what the Jets want him to do. He realizes that he needs to be a team player and not let his popularity overshadow the team and its starting quarterback Mark Sanchez. The plan for now is to limit Tebow's media appearance, but if he beats out Mark Sanchez for the starting job, the Jets will have no choice. All bets will be off at that point.
