"I've heard nothing but great things about Mr. Esiason," Tebow said. "I know he was a great player here, and I just wish him nothing but the best in his announcing and God bless him."
Tebow did, however, say that he is used to handling criticism.
"I've pretty much heard a lot of it. From when I was in high school, when they said I couldn't be a high school quarterback, when I was in college and my first year they told me 'you'll never play quarterback', and then, 'you can never win a championship', and 'you'll never play in the NFL', " Tebow said. "I've heard a lot of it and I just continue to use that as motivation and when I get my opportunities."
Here is more of what Tebow had to say during his Monday meeting with reporters at SUNY Cortland.
On the fight…
I didn’t see anything. I was all the way on the other side and I just ran over and started pulling people off. I don’t even know who started it.
On if tension during camp has been more or less than other camps…
Probably less than what I’m used to from college and in Denver. I think this team does a good job of taking care of one another. Today got a little chippy obviously, but for the most part I think this team does a really good job of taking care of one another.
On if he’s ever been in the middle of a fight or started one…
(Laughter) No, I don’t feel like I’ve ever started one. Possibly, I could have thought I might have gotten a late hit before, or cheap shot or something.
