Darrelle Revis Appreciates Tebow's Leadership Quality

DENVER, CO - JANUARY 13: Rocky, the mascot of the Denver Nuggets wears a Denver Broncos Tim Tebow jersey and strikes a Tebowing pose on the court after the Nuggets defeated the Miami Heat 117-104 at the Pepsi Center on January 13, 2012 in Denver, Colorado.

We try not to go too overboard with stories about the Jets backup quarterback, but Manish had some great quotes from Darrelle Revis on what he has seen from Tebow, since he joined the Jets earlier this year.

"He’s a born leader," Revis said on Wednesday. "He really is. Very few athletes have the gift that he has. He tries to lead by example all the time and he tries to be positive, which is awesome. I think that results (in) his success on the field. He came in with Denver and did unbelievable. And now he’s with us. We’re happy. We’re excited for him. We’re happy (that) he’ll bring his leadership qualities to this team."

I don't like posting Tebow articles, I'll be completely honest about that. Not because I don't appreciate what is being said, but because it always turns into a Tebow v Sanchez conversation. I think at some point, we are going to have to get over this and just welcome him to the team and appreciate his qualities and how they can be used to improve the New York Jets. Unfortunately I don't think that'll happen until he's on the field this autumn.

"Some people have it. Some guys don’t," Revis said. "It’s the passion within… of him wanting to be a leader, wanting to win. You see it in him all the time… eating lunch. Walking down the hallway you see it. He’s just one of those guys. He’s very positive. He has passion for what he does and you could see it. You can see it on him when you have a conversation with him. He’s just a leader."

I wouldn't read this as some people have it (Tebow) some people don't (Sanchez), just in case you were starting to think that. I know that when I play any sport, I want passionate guys on my team, i want hard workers on my team and most of all I want guys who want to win on my team. Tebow is really settling in with his new team mates and the more time that passes, the more we start to hear about it from guys like Slausen, Mangold and now Revis.
