It was a topsy-turvy football season for Tim Tebow. At least it felt that way for his fans. I am one of them. Will he get to start this week? Will he even get to play?
Now that the offseason is upon us, it remains topsy-turvy. Will the New York Jets release him? Will they keep him? Will they trade him? Who wants him? It is enough to make this fan’s head spin more than that famous wheel that makes Vanna White clap.
There is recent speculation that he might join his former coach Mike McCoy in his new gig with the San Diego Chargers. Some say he’d be a good fit for Chip Kelly’s offense with the Philadelphia Eagles. And there are of course the naysayers, like ESPN’s resident Grinch, Merril Hoge, who say he doesn’t belong in the NFL.
What’s going to happen? I wish I knew. It feels to me, though, that the Jets are going to keep him. That isn’t what I want to have happen. I want him to go to a new team that will use him, respect him and START him. The Jets, after the way they treated him last season, don’t deserve Tim Tebow. Right now, however, they have him and I don’t think they are going to let him go. Maybe for no other reason than that they can keep him. Maybe to be spiteful to all of the Tebow fans who have loathed the Jets ownership and coaching staff. It doesn’t make any sense, but that is the Jets’ organization. They don’t make any sense.
I think Tim Tebow is going to stay in New York. I must begin to prepare myself for another disappointing and topsy-turvy year.
