Don't mess with Tebow

Test Tebow at your peril.

According to Rex Ryan, the Jets have taken quickly to their new backup quarterback. But with that acceptance comes constant challenges.

Not only does Tim Tebow have to contend with Bart Scott's (playful, yet constant) chirping on the practice field, but he also has had his fair of weight room strength tests.

Ryan said a lineman (whom he chose not to name) challenged Tebow to a weight room competition to see who could hold sledgehammers in their oustretched arms longer.

The lineman recorded a time of 1:04.

Tebow?

1:18.

Not bad, huh?

"This guy is crazy with how strong he is and the kind of focus he has," said Ryan. "I see that from him. He's super competitive."
