We're going to move on to tim tebow. Superstar quarterback, being torn apart here in new york city by his own team behind his back. Why is one of the most popular players in recent memory, who was once hailed as a savior, now being called terrible? Take a look. Tebow keeps it on the run. Reporter: Over the past three years, tim tebow has attracted a devout following, on the field. And off. The quarterback known across the country as much for his poses as for his play at the position. But this morning, tebow appears more tarnished by the day. He's hardly played this year. More than a dozen of his teammates on the new york jets ripped him anonymously this week, telling "the daily news," the second-string quarterback is, quote, terrible. Even saying, we don't look at him as a quarterback, end quote. It can be a little frustrating or saddening. But at the same time, always motivating to keep going out there and keep working. Reporter: It's a seemingly stunning fall from grace, from the heisman trophy winner acquired by the jets after a string of come-from-behind wins with the denver broncos. Now, fodder h for late-night comics. A dozen new york jets players told a reporter that tim tebow is terrible. They said, he is a terrible quarterback. And believe me, if anybody knows terrible, it's the jets. These guys know what they are talking about. Reporter: Now, we're depending on miracles? One jet told the paper. You can't play that way. Winning can do marvelous things for you. Losing tends to do the opposite. Have I ever seen anything like this? Not once. Reporter: And the jets are losing. They are 3-6, with starting quartemark sanchez completing roughly half of his passes. Rex ryan says that's no excuse. If you're not going to put your name to it. Reporter: Ryan never suggested tebow would replace sanchez. And even sanchez has come to his defense. If anybody knows what he feels like, it's me. Reporter: Still, the man once lampooned for his direct line to heaven. Tim, easy. Reporter: Is finding no love here on terra firma.
