(NEW YORK) — Now that he’s no longer the special teams coach for the New York Jets, Mike Westhoff is not holding back in criticism of the team and specifically their usage of quarterback Tim Tebow.
Tebow’s lone season with the Jets was a bust. During the preseason, fans and media were told that the team would use Tebow in a variety of ways on offense. That never happened as Tebow accounted for just 141 yards the entire season.
“It was a mess,” Westhoff told 560 WQAM In Miami. “It was an absolute mess. You can say whatever else you want, it was really a mess. I was very, very disappointed. There are things that Tim Tebow, as an NFL quarterback, he’s very limited in some things. If you throw him in the middle of a drop-back passing offense, he will look very, very average at best. Bust if you incorporate him in different facets of your offense, I think he can be a factor. That’s what I thought we were going to do, but we never did it.”
Tebow played in just 77 offensive plays for the Jets this season, which ranked 21st on the team.
