President Barack Obama not a fan of Tim Tebow trade
During a campaign event today in Ohio, President Barack Obama called in to 97.1 The Fan in Columbus and talked about the Jets’ quarterback situation with hosts Mike Ricordati and Scott Torgerson. Bottom line: Obama’s not a fan of the Jets’ trade for Tebow.
“I gotta tell you, I don’t like the idea of a quarterback controversy at the start of a season, so if I was a Jets’ fan, I’d be pretty nervous,” he said. “Sanchez is not Tom Brady yet, but he led them to the playoffs two years in a row. I think Tim Tebow seems to be a wonderful young man, and he’s got just a great winning attitude. He really steps up when things count.”
“But there’s going to be a lot of tension in that situation,” Obama said, “so it’ll be pretty interesting to see how it plays itself out.”
Can only imagine the comeback Rex Ryan will have for the President at his press conference tomorrow. Have at it, Rex.
