The Titans, Bills and Jags need QB help. I hope this creates an opportunity to see Tebow play this year.
Its doubtful if we will see Tim Tebow int he NFL again. If we do its because another fool will use him as a prop, a ticket-seller even though his "brand" is not what it once was. The smart ones will see that Tebow’s presence can also become a major distraction, and that may cause some teams to shy away.
Just like what Elway and Rex and McDaniels and Belichick saw, Tebow doesn't process the football information fast enough. To be a quarterback in the NFL, you have to go through the reads, one, two, three and four --- and then check it down. Tebow rarely got past one and then run. From what I have read he never did it at Florida either.
Paul I know you love him I think its time to come to terms with the unfortunate fact, that it's over for Tim Tebow.
16. Then again, Gabbert did inspire this excellent idea for a rule change from a San Diego reader named Brian: "What if eight games into every season, the league's worst team was forced to sign and start Tim Tebow for the rest of that season? Wouldn't that be a great story line/incentive to win? Why not make things interesting? It's not fair that they're forcing us to watch the likes of Blaine Gabbert or Mike Glennon throw up all over themselves when Tebow would be infinitely more entertaining. GIVE THE PEOPLE WHAT THEY WANT!"
This is awesome...from Grantland. http://www.grantland.com/story/_/id/976 … cksonville
If the nfl even did something like that, then I can only imagine that would only anger a lot more people than it would help. First of all, if i was an owner of a bad team, I would not want the nfl to force me to sign and start anyone I didn't want to sign because the way i see it, it's my team, so I can have the right to sign whoever the heck I want. Plus, that's what I would be paying General Managers for, and it would severely undermine the coaches authority because he may not even want to start tebow.
Another thing to keep in mind is the salary cap. What if this alleged bad team didn't have enough room in the salary cap to sign Tebow, or the roster space. What then? Is there going to be a clause saying that the team has to cut a player just to make room for Tebow? Look, I know your a huge Tebow fan, and for whatever it's worth, I think he's a very nice guy.
Sadly, we have to come to the reality that Tim Tebow is not a great quarterback. Great athlete? sure. Great person? definitely. Great leader that inspires others? no doubt. Great quarterback? No. His numbers are nowhere near what they need to be to justify such a claim, and unless he improves drastically, I doubt we'll ever see him playing qb in the nfl again.
Although I hate saying this about Tebow, I have to say it. I apologize to all Tebow fans out there, but your boy is an idiot. When he was on the patriots, he should've been more open to playing multiple positions on the side like Tight End, Punt Blocker, Running Back, backup quarterback and etc because if he had, I can guarantee you he would still be on the patriots.
Why do i say this? Well for starters, Tebow has the body that would suggest he can make a great tight end, and seeing as how he knows the qb position, it would make him and Brady a deadly combination. Plus, the pats need a tight end at the moment as well.
Plus, we already know he can run, so him playing a running back on certain plays would've helped the patriots. And, we all know that billichick loves to play guys out of position sometimes, so i doubt he would've had a problem using tebow for a slasher role similar to how kordell stewart used to be for the steelers.
Speaking of which, how did that work out for kordell doing the slasher role? Didn't he end up getting the starting qb job eventually? Therefore, that just goes to show that maybe if Tebow had been more receptive to playing a slasher role for the patriots, while biding his time to learn from Brady as a backup qb, then i think that would've been the smartest move he ever made. Sadly, the guy didn't want to play multiple positions, so i think he's an idiot. I apologize if that offends anyone, but I just had to come out and say that.
Looks like Buffalo has found a QB. The Bengals are getting a run for their money as Thad Lewis and the Bills have gone into OT.
Sam Bradford out for the season, heard some rumors saying the Rams maybe interested in Tebow.
Man, I'd love to see him play for anyone.
How about that Jets game today. That call was terrible.
"That call" I am thinking you are talking about the penalty that gave the Jets a fresh set of downs and 15 yds. If that is the case, please read this and/ or anything else about Rule 9, Section 1, Article 3, subsection (b)(2) Its a new rule this year can't push a teammate into the offensive formation on a field goal or try attempt.
"The Patriots lost to the Jets on Sunday as a direct result of the application of a new rule prohibiting the pushing of defensive players during field goal attempts by other defensive players. The rule was properly applied, but that hasn’t stopped some Pats fans from insisting that the team was screwed." Read more here The Rule that Burned the Pats
Sad that its "that call" that draws headlines, for it should not take away from the amazing effort that my Jets ended a 5 game losing streak against the Pats.
Geno Smith didnt let that early pick-six get to him and he continued to play well. As for the Jets’ defense they did what they had to when playing the Pats, they got to Tom Brady and they did it often from late in the first half on.
The Jets are alive and kicking!
As for Tebow, the rumors I read yesterday I think have been quashed. Bradford out but Jeff Fisher doesnt seem to be anymore interested in Tebow then he was before New England picked him up.
For the first time ever to have a call made in the history of the NFL, it came at a pivotal point. Technically right, but it was atrocious in my opinion.
Tebow is one of my favorite players to watch. There is just something about watching him I enjoy. Still hoping he gets a chance to play. With all the injuries, it seems like he should at least have a job.
I like Tim Tebow, I hope he can find a job. He is doing charity works in the Philippines
http://www.philippinedailymirror.com/in … davao.html
I saw that the Rams went with Brady Quinn. I'll keep hoping he gets a call, but if he's doing charity work, I wonder how much he is working on his game.
I check everyday to see if Tebow has a job:) I wonder how many QBs need to go down for him to get a shot.
He wants to work as college football broadcast journalist.
He has to make a living, but I'd so rather see him on the field. I wonder if he is still working out with a QB coach. If he got a call, is he ready?
That's smartest thing he's said so far in the past few years. It's obvious that unless his mechanics have changed drastically, the reality is he'll never be a starting quarterback in the nfl. i honestly don't care what tebow fans say, as i say that one year with the broncos was a fluke.
He was a great college player, but as we've seen in the past with many college athletes (not limited to just football), not all of them are able to adapt to the pros. It happens all the time.
Sadly, tebow just happens to be one of those great college players that just can't make the transition. Doesn't mean he sucks at playing the position. Just that he can't play that position in the pros.
However, i do think if he wants to become a broadcaster for college football, then i think that's a great idea. im sure he's still a big name among college sports fans, so if say espn or some other network hired him, then that would be a good idea for them.
He needs to be playing! I'd love to see an interview with him on what he's doing and what it will take for a team to take a shot with him.
It looks like Tebow himself is preparing for the likelihood that his NFL days as a player are over. According to a Nov 10 tweet posted by NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport :
"Tim Tebow hired prominent broadcast agent CAA’s Nick Khan to join Jimmy Sexton in repping him. If no NFL, will look at college TV jobs."
Another interesting place for Tebow according to an article on Yahoo Sports has him as as a mentor for the QB's on the staff of the Ohio State Buckeyes. You can read about that one here With Tim Tebow's NFL Prospects Fading, Could He End Up at Ohio State in 2014?
Sorry Paul but anyway you cut it ,Tebow is not suiting up on the gridiron for any NFL team again.
Fans lose. Plenty of teams need leadership. He represents hope.
Terry Bradshaw the rookie
Bradshaw was the first player selected in the 1970 NFL Draft by the Pittsburgh Steelers; the Steelers drew the first pick in the draft after winning a coin flip tiebreaker with the Chicago Bears due to both teams having identical 1-13 records in 1969. In either case, Bradshaw was hailed at the time as the consensus number one pick.
Bradshaw became a starter in his second season after splitting time with Terry Hanratty in his rookie campaign.During his first few seasons, the 6'3", 215 lb. quarterback was erratic, threw many interceptions (he threw 210 interceptions over the course of his career) and was widely ridiculed by the media for his rural roots and perceived lack of intelligence
It took Bradshaw several seasons to adjust to the NFL, but he eventually led the Pittsburgh Steelers to eight AFC Central championships and four Super Bowl titles.
Troy Aikman was the No. 1 overall pick in the 1989 NFL Draft, by the Dallas Cowboys
Aikman's NFL career started with a 28–0 loss to the New Orleans Saints. The following week, Aikman threw his first touchdown pass, a 65-yard completion to Michael Irvin, but the Atlanta Falcons intercepted two passes and won. In a game against the Phoenix Cardinals he threw for 379 yards to set an NFL rookie record. He finished 1989 with an 0-11 record as a starter, completing 155 of 293 passes for 1,749 yards, 9 TDs, 18 INTs.

Here ya go Paul. Tim Tebow has been offered to play football. Though it is not the NFL you may just be able to see Tebow suit up for The Milano Seamen of the Italian federation for American football!
I'd watch him in the Italian league, but would rather see him in the nfl.
Tebow is not getting any feelers from teams wanting to rekindle his playing career, but he's definitely hearing from TV networks. It will probably be for college. But he has said before he really wants to play, but I think he know unless he goes to Italy he isnt suiting up.
TV will pay the bills, but I'm hoping he gets one more opportunity.
He has that opportunity .. but its in Italy.
Paul . .I know how you feel about this. . but no one in the NFL is going to take Tebow and his no skills QB arm and all that comes with him. I think that is more or less a fact at this point. Hes hired one of the best firms to try to get him landed as an NFL sportscaster (CBS new station coming soon) but even in that capacity I dont think the guys in the NFL want any part of him. College sportscasting pretty much a lock. But the NFL .. I think its in his past.
He has a job now, but he is open to quarterbacking, huh...
Dallas needs a new owner that doesn't undermine his coaching staff, and allows them to do their job.
Yup, Bengals need a new QB who can win in the playoff.
I am kind of dumb about this, is this a game?
PDH...first of all want to wish you a happy happy new year!
And secondly it looks like Zelkiiro is not interested in sports. So coming here, he must have been truly bored for it seems as if his intention was merely to stir up some excitement for himself.
Why else would he bother to enter into a thread about sports when he obviously dislikes the topic.
by Paul Edmondson 10 years ago
I really want to see Tebow play. It's not enough that the Jets can't run the ball or pass it for Tebow to play significantly. What will it take. If he comes in and runs the table, the Jets could be a playoff team:)
by Stevennix2001 10 years ago
I saw this debated on first take on espn a while back, but i want to know what you guys think. Do you think that Tim Tebow gets the most unfair scrutiny than any other quarterback in nfl history? Or any player history i might add?
by Paul Edmondson 9 years ago
It drove me nuts all the talk that Tebow was done. Today, it made me smile that he's signing with the Patriots. I wish him success and if Brady goes down this year, I'll watch every Pats game to see Tebow play:)
by Audrey Selig 9 years ago
Will Tim Tebow ever return to NFL as a quarterback? The word is no team wants him.He was let go by Denver, New York Jets, and recently New England. Hopefully, he won't be a Heisman Trophy winner that nobody wants.
by Stevennix2001 6 years ago
As many of you might have heard, Tim Tebow has tried out to play minor league baseball, and it looks like the Mets are giving him a huge contract. I don't know the specifics of it, but I've heard that supposedly he's going to be paid way more than the average player on the...
by Steve Schroeder 10 years ago
Will Tim Tebow start as QB for any NFL team in 2013? If so, which one?There's a good chance Tebow will not be with the Jets after the 2012 season. Whether he gets cut or traded, speculation has been raised as to which team he may go to.
