New York Jets OTA 2012: Tim Tebow Throws Two Interceptions, Internet Explodes

Tim Tebow threw a pair of interceptions in the 7-on-7 portion of practice Thursday during the New York Jets OTA, and the Twitter-verse went nuts with condemnation of the backup quarterback.

An incredibly overzealous Gary Myers of the New York Daily News went so far as to tweet "Sanchez lengthening lead in Jets QB derby."


Tebow called the interceptions "frustrating."'s Kim Jones Reports On The OTA

"Both of those plays, (it) was the first time I ran them. So I will learn from it and that is it. It won't bother me again. When you make a bad play, just put it behind you and move on," Tebow said. "Both times he [offensive coordinator Tony Sparano] was saying ‘You have to take your check down. It is right there in front of you.' That is obviously a learning point for me that I didn't learn the first time."

Tebow is also working on the Jets punt coverage team, and admits it is something he has never done before.

"I'll do whatever I can to help the team," Tebow said. "I just go out there and have fun and try to do my job to the best of my abilities (and do) whatever I'm asked to do."
