Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley told the Milwaukee Journey-Sentinel that the coverage Denver Broncos’ quarterback Tim Tebow has received is “kind of disturbing.”
“I sit at home, start watching TV and all I’m seeing is Tebow,” Finley told the paper. “That’s kind of disturbing. We have a guy here that’s breaking records every week and you have a guy in Tebow that’s saying ‘God’ every word and he gets coverage. Of course I love my faith and God but come on man.”
Earlier Friday, Baltimore Ravens’ quarterback Joe Flacco said that he was “baffled” by the attention Tebow has received.
Tebow has gone 6-1 since taking over the starting quarterback position from Kyle Orton.
“He’s telling everybody what they want to hear,” Finley said. “You see him and he’s patting everybody on the back saying, ‘You’re going to make this catch. I promise because God said,’ and he makes it happen. Stuff like that. It confuses people. People that don’t know the game outside of the fans, of course they’re going to hype it up. But guys that see a good player and a good quarterback, they know what kind of guy he’ll be down the road when he gets exposed. Everybody who knows the game knows what kind of player Tebow is going to be.”
