Superstar Quarterback Tim Tebow's Faith Still Strong In The Big Apple, A Highlight Hollywood News Interview

New York Jets great Tim Tebow had plenty to say, some may be a bit rattling for fans, but you have to give it to the guy. He’s not only as my dear friend Phyllis Diller said to me about her best friend Vincent Prince, “Talented, handsome and rich!” But Tim is a master of the game of public relations, and has more star quality than all the other NFL players put together, and then some! And one thing for sure, Tim has no focus on his friend Mark Sanchez’s job, he plans to be the Jets backup quarterback and play whatever positions his coaches and team ask of him.

Tebow told 1050 ESPN Radio on Friday that he is, “not sure” if he’ll ever be a starting quarterback again, and that thought doesn’t even concern him right now.
“I don’t know what the future holds, but I know who holds my future,” Tebow said to the interviewer, referring to his strong Christian faith. “That’s something that has always given me peace and comfort. That’s why I don’t have to worry about the future. I can just worry about today and worry about becoming better as a football player and a person.”

Handsome Tim Tebow was acquired from Denver in a trade on March 21 and introduced Monday at a news conference that included over 200 media. He said his only plan is to help his new team win games and, “be the best quarterback, best teammate, best football player I can be and just be someone that adds something to that locker room.”  Tim has no worries, he’s definitely going to be all he can be, and we all know, that’s the BEST!

All the while, Coach Rex Ryan and general manager Mike Tannenbaum have repeatedly said Sanchez is the unquestioned starter, with Tebow serving as the backup but having a significant role in the offense. Tebow has chosen his words carefully since arriving in New York, staying away from anything that could stir controversy.

He compared this situation to when he was a freshman at the University of Florida and backed up Chris Leak while seeing occasional snaps.  “Ultimately, it ended with a lot of success,” Tebow concluded, “us winning a national championship.”

Well, there is a lot of championship material left in the star’s body. So Highlight Hollywood editors just may all take up watching football to see Tim shine next season!
