The six-time Pro Bowl quarterback was appearing on ESPN's "First Take" when the topic of a recent Twitter message by Tim Tebow was brought up. Tebow used the social networking site to thank Broncos fans for their support and promise Jets fans that he would play his heart out for them.
McNabb said Tebow needs to turn his attention to football and take a break from social media.
"Let it go. At some point let's focus on getting into camp and learning a new offense," McNabb said. "There's no need to keep trying to have the fans behind you."
McNabb went on to say, "As an NFL player, and as a veteran in this game, no one cares what you're doing during the offseason. They only care about what you do on the football field."
While McNabb's criticism of the popular quarterback may have seemed harsh and unfair to some, he definitely made a very strong case. Tebow is already a controversial figure in the NFL, and his reputation off the field overshadows what he does during game time. Ultimately, McNabb was spot on about why the seemingly harmless tweet can do more damage than good.
