Now, we can officially say this whole anonymous New York Jets thing has gotten out of control. We have heard a variety of opinions surface since a NY Daily News story ran earlier this week in which anonymous Jets players ripped Tim Tebow and called him “terrible.” LaDainian Tomlinson thinks he knows who the secret sources are and Rex Ryan thinks they’re cowards. Another player feels as though the Tebow quotes were fabricated, but he too has chosen to remain anonymous.
That’s right, an anonymous Jets player reportedly believes the anonymous quotes about Tebow are fake.
“That one right there, we don’t know if that necessarily came out of the locker room. We think that was made up or that was from an old story that he took and rewrote it again,” the new anonymous player said according to Metro. “We don’t think that came from here and was recent. Whatever one comes from in here has a name on it, like the [Matt] Slauson one. We talked about it and moved on. But we’re not buying all this spin that is coming out right now and we’re not necessarily buying that the quote came out recently or even from this locker room.”
Bart Scott already implied that he believes the quotes could have been fabricated, so why would one of his teammates chose to remain anonymous in saying so? Was the player afraid to offend Manish Mehta? Wait, am I actually trying to sort this out in my head? We’re well beyond that point. Carry on…
