Even two years after his departure from the New York Jets, Tim Tebow can't catch a break from Rex Ryan

Ryan took a shot at his former quarterback in an interview revolving around his new wide recevier, Eric Decker, per Newsday's Kimberley A. Martin: 

"Coach Rex Ryan went out of his way to saddle Decker with the hefty label of 'No. 1' guy. But Decker's contract -- and the fact that the Jets finished 30th and 31st in passing yards per game in 2012 and 2013, respectively -- shows just how much is riding on his arrival.

"After spending four seasons in Denver, he signed a five-year, $36.25 million free-agent deal with the Jets this offsesason. Decker now has to adjust from caching passes from future Hall of Famer Peyton Manning to balls thrown by Geno Smith and Michael Vick. But that doesn't faze Decker.

"'I see a lot of talent in this QB room,' he said.

"And while some say Decker's stats (87 catches for 1,288 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2013) were inflated because of Manning, Ryan pointed out that 'he did catch eight touchdown passes when (Tim) Tebow was the quarterback. Hey, that's pretty impressive.'" 

Yahoo! Sports' Eric Edholm chimes in on this issue: 

"OK, Tebow. Yeah, this is funny stuff. This just further proves that Rex had no use for the guy. Didn't want him as quarterback, didn't want him as Wildcat guy, just didn't want him in general. 

"Rex might have had a decent say in picking another quarterback (Mark Sanchez), and when that went south in his personnel privileges were usurped. But his rumor clearly remains unshackled, and any chance to take a shot at Tebow -- even two years after the guy's final snap with the team -- remains a viable option. We love it. 

"But here's the funny part about that 8-TD number Ryan cited: it's not correct. Decker caught one touchdown pass as a rookie in 2010 and, yes, eight more in 2011. But Tebow only was the thrower on five of them -- one in the Week 17 finale in 2010 and four more during that miracle season of 2011, the rest coming from Kyle Orton -- over those two years. 

"Tebow was then traded to Ryan's Jets the following offseason in 2012. 

"Eight, five...what's the difference? In Ryan's mind, any touchdowns from his former quarterback would represent a minor miracle." 

The 26-year-old Tebow registered 2,422 passing yards, 17 touchdowns, nine interceptions on a 75.3 passer rating in his three-year NFL career with the Denver Broncos and New York Jets, per ESPN stats

In an ideal world, an NFL team would find a perfect harmony between quality reps in training camp and the perfect quantity.

When gauging a rep's value, it is important to understand ...
