Chicago Bears Football — Don’t look now Bears fans, but Tim Tebow could be rocking Chicago’s navy and orange by the time the 2014 season kicks off next fall. It has been reported by Sports World Report that the Chicago Bears are in the running for the former Denver Broncos quarterback along with Cleveland Browns, Oakland Raiders, Minnesota Vikings, and Jacksonville Jaguars. Don’t Make Assumptions Yet Everyone remembers four years ago when Tim Tebow took the NFL by storm…and everyone hated it. ESPN –  and especially Skip Bayless — blew up over ‘Tebowmania’ and brought it to a point where even hearing the word ‘Tebow‘ made you irritated. But times have changed. After signing with the New York Jets and then the New England Patriots, Tebow spent all of last season out of football. Instead of trying to find another profession, Tebow went to work on the mechanical flaws that kept him from making a roster this past season. He turned down offers from a variety of Arena Football League and CFL teams because he has the goal of one day making it back to the NFL. Now he might have the opportunity, and Chicago could be his destination. Chicago Bears Are The Right Fit Out of all the teams that are reportedly interested in Tebow, Chicago is the hands down the best fit. Bears fans might be hesitant because they think Tebow is still that same overrated quarterback they saw flounder in New York two years ago, but he’s not. After an intense season of working on his fundamentals, Tebow would be a perfect fit in the Bears system for a few reasons. 1) He Has Worked With Trestman Before If Marc Trestman goes into GM Phil Emery’s office and says, “I want this guy,” Emery will make it happen. Trestman has worked with Tebow before, most notably prior to the 2010 Draft. It is well-noted at this point that Trestman has an eye for quarterback talent. If he feels he can work with Tebow, there is no reason to believe he can’t. 2) The Bears Organization One of the major reasons why Tim Tebow failed in New York was because the Jets front office is pretty miserable. Between Rex Ryan’s antics and their quarterback issues, Tim Tebow failed their because of the organization. That won’t happen in Chicago. Just like many analysts feel Michael Sam could thrive with the Bears, Tebow can do the same. Chicago’s media base that isn’t interested in spreading gossip like New York. Also, the Bears organization has a very good hand of the public relations side of the things. 3) The Locker Room Since coming to Chicago, Marc Trestman has made the Chicago Bears locker room one of the best in the NFL. He is part of a new wave of coaches in the NFL who treat players like people and not just X’s and O’s. He genuinely cares about the individuals he coaches. That showed last year and into this offseason as players have been seen training and hanging out with each other all the time. Players will not judge Tebow if he decided to come to the team. 4) Religion Anyone who has watched a Tim Tebow interview knows that he is a man of faith. When with the Broncos and Jets he stuck out like a sore thumb because he was one of the only people on the team who expressed his religious beliefs to the degree he did. That won’t happen in the Bears locker room. Last season, Brandon Marshall and Josh McCown led bible studies during the week as well as before games. There are multiple pictures of the team embarrassing religion, something that Coach Trestman welcomes. 5) Playing Time Tebow won’t be expected to come in and start or compete for a starting position for the Bears. It has already been made perfectly clear to the ring of $125 million that Jay Cutler is Chicago’s starting quarterback. Tebow will be able to come in and work with Trestman one-on-one to help him improve his game. There will be no pressure or controversy like there was in New York. This can do nothing but benefit both Tebow and the Bears. The decision of whether or not to go after Tim Tebow is up to Marc Trestman. If he feels that he can work with the former Heisman Trophy winner, Phil Emery will find a way to make it happen. Tebow will just have to decide whether or not he wants the opportunity to start on a team like Oakland or Jacksonville, or if he would rather take less money and work for a quality organization like the Bears. _________ Source: Sports World Report Photo: Montreal Gazette   Author informationMatthew DlugieFeatured Columnist at Sports MockeryIf you have any questions or comments please contact info@sportsmockery.com - Thank you for reading.TwitterFacebookGoogle+LinkedInThe post Chicago Bears Interested In Tim Tebow appeared first on Sports Mockery.
