Default Ray Lewis "shocked" by the help Tebow has received

Posted by Mike Florio on May 7, 2010 9:41 AM ET

We've previously pointed out that Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow could spark contempt and resentment in an NFL locker room. Recent comments from Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis hone in on one of the specific potential sources for the hard feelings players may have for Tebow.

That Tebow is somehow better or more worthy than the rest of them.

Asked by ESPN Radio's Colin Cowherd whether Lewis was shocked by the media attention on the Tebow story prior to the draft, Lewis said (via NFL.com), "The thing I was more shocked by is you see all the people who were willing to help him. I don't know many people who were willing to help other athletes like that. Jon Gruden loved him to death. You see all these people who took out their personal time to really work with him and make this big issue, big issue, big issue. I don't know why he was any different than anyone else. Every young child has that dream, that same dream that Tebow had. So I don't know why he was bigger . . . than any of the other guys.

"He went to a big program, and, yes, he might be a favorable person, but nobody else in the league, definitely not veteran players, see themselves differently than any other player."

Though Lewis stopped short of saying that this will make Tebow a target of opposing defenders (the Broncos play at Baltimore on October 10), Tebow's bigger concern should be ironing out any hard feelings that may arise in his own locker room, where others may not be thrilled by the budding love affair between Tebow and the fan base and/or Tebow and the head coach, who proclaimed this week that Tebow has the "it" factor.

Again, it all comes down to how Tebow handles himself. And though others might see Tebow "differently than any other player," we don't believe Tebow carries himself in a way that suggests that he sees himself differently. And we think that if Tebow handles himself the way he always has, he'll win his teammates over and, in time, his foes.

Gruden did coaching sessions with all 4 of the top QB prospects... one of the best segments ESPN has done in about 20 years, and that's not saying a lot.

Well, the question Lewis answered depends on the context in which it was asked, but Lewis sure got a lot of help when he was on trial for murder.

There's been plenty, plenty of players had tons of support over the years.

The amount of help that Tebow received is a testament to his character. Something Ray would know little about.

I think that Gruden also meet with him after that to work on drills that would help Tebow get rid of the ball faster.

I don't see Ray Lewis complaining when Tony Dungy mentors a player or when Deion Sanders works with college kids (even if he is steering them to his agent).

Tim Tebow spends his off time conducting camps teaching kids football and about being a good person.

Ray Lewis teaches kids that you shouldn't knife somebody if you don't have a fall guy to take the rap.

Besides, Baltimore is an a-hole of a city.

#1) Who gives a flying F what Ray Lewis thinks?

#2) It is my hope that every opposing team hates Tebow. I bet every team hated Elway, too.

And he forgot about the fact that Tebow faced inordinate criticism and scrutiny that goes along with the notoriety he got in college and leading up to the draft. It is a two way street - some handle it appropriately and some don't (Bryant). People are willing to help him because he has great character and desire to succeed and is willing to take advice and coaching. This is nothing but pure jealousy. Given Lewis' professed religious nature, I would think he would welcome a fellow Christian like Tebow. But no.... HYPOCRITE!

Take a cheap shot on Tebow, and I guarantee the Broncos locker room, that will be more in love with him than we are in 2 months, will murder whoever the **** did it within 2 plays.

Ray Lewis is on the wrong side of 35, he had better hope Tebow doesn't learn how to use the truck stick before October 10th.

To be fair, Lewis has been very involved in his community after his incident and has actually started a training club to help cops in Baltimore. But Baltimore is is a **** hole

I don't think people offered help, Tebow asked for it.

That is what I love about him. He realizes that there is an issue, and he is working to correct it. Being a Heisman Trophy winner/ greatest college player of all time and being humble enough to seek help to improve his weaknesses, wish I could bottle and sell it.
