Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow scored a 20-yard rushing touchdown in the waning minutes of the fourth quarter on Thursday night to secure a thrilling come-from-behind win over the New York Jets at Mile High Stadium in Denver, Colo.
Cowboys defensive coordinator Rob Ryan was not impressed.
Maybe it's because he doesn't like the current "Tebowing" craze, one that has NFL fans across the globe snapping photographs of themselves in deep prayer against unusual and often hilarious backgrounds. Or perhaps he has a certain disdain for the city of Denver.
Could it simply be sympathy for his brother Rex, who coached "Gang Green" to a 5-5 start to the 2011-12 season? Actually, it may be none of the above.
"I don't like it because it's college football. We're getting a lot of two tight ends blocking for empty sets. Who would have ever thought that? This is the NFL. Those teams don't win."
Following Thursday's 17-13 loss on the road, the Jets have put themselves in a situation where every game is a "must win," starting against the Buffalo Bills on Nov. 27 at home.
