On the football field and at Dick’s Sporting Goods in New York City, Tim Tebow rides the bench.
As if Tim Tebow hasn’t taken enough criticism during the last few weeks of the season for reportedly wanting out of the wildcat and “quitting” on the Jets, a New York City Dick’s Sporting Goods store took the trashing of Tebow to a whole new level.
The photo (above) of Tebow’s manikin sitting the bench among other Jets starters such as Santonio Holmes, Mark Sanchez, Bart Scott, and Nick Mangold has began to go viral after ESPN’s Darren Rovell posted it on his Twitter page. It looks like, similar to the end of the Jets season, Tebow can’t seem to find his way off the bench, even in an athletic store. I mean, you can almost picture Tebow in the uniform now. Head down, gazing at the ground, while Sanchez, Holmes, and teammates have their head up, laughing up their latest loss (you know, the usual).
It’s alright, Tebow, you’ll look better in the black, teal and gold next season anyways. But hey, even if he doesn’t, he’ll be at the forefront of the mainstream media headlines. So, even if you’re on the bench, you win, Tim.

Tim Tebow's NFL season is over, and he's still taking jabs.
In a photo posted on Twitter by New York native Scott Hochenburg, Tebow takes a seat on the bench in a display at a Dick's Sporting Goods store at Palisades Mall in West Nyack, N.Y.

Two things are readily apparent after Tim Tebow‘s three years in the NFL. First, he is not ever going to be a good traditional quarterback. Second, he does not want to — or cannot — be used primarily as an option player, such as in wildcat sets.
But what is still undetermined is whether Tebow can be a good, run-oriented quarterback if given the right offense.
Tebowmania was at a peak when the Jets brought Wildcat quarterback Tim Tebow over from the Denver Broncos last winter. The darling of the NFL went from riding a wave of popularity to riding the pine.
Now one New York City sporting goods store has used Tebow's status on the bench to help promoting New York Jets merchandise.
According to Darren Rovell's Twitter account, a...
Florida could have actually used Tim Tebow last night in the Sugar Bowl as they got smashed by Louisville. It's hard to remember, but Tebow was once one of the great college football players in history with a Heisman Trophy and two national championships before he became a human debate pinata. He was there in New Orleans to watch the Gators defeat in person, and wouldn'...
Found in what is assumed to be a Dick’s Sporting Goods store in the New York/New Jersey area is this display of mannequins dressed as several prominent players from the New York Jets. Most of the team’s stars are represented in the display, including Nick Mangold, Santonio Holmes, Bart Scott, Mark “Buttfumble” Sanchez, and Tim Tebow, who is appropriately the only one found...

If one factoid perfectly sums up the Tim Tebow Era in NYC, it is most certainly this one.

The NFL regular season has come to an end with the Washington Redskins defeating the Dallas Cowboys and claiming the last playoff spot. With the end of the regular season brings “Black Monday”, a day where coaches who failed to live up to their team owner’s expectations get fired. One of these coaches is Chicago … Continue reading »
The New York Jets ended a disappointing season with a 28-9 loss to the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. While Rex Ryan is undoubtedly upset with the way his team performed this year, he has to be relieved that he no longer has to deal with arguably the ugliest quarterback situation in the NFL.
When the Jets acquired Tim Tebow, Ryan warned opponents that they had better be prepared to face...

For sports fans tired of hearing the endless speculation about Tim Tebow’s future and Dwight Howard’s next team, be forewarned: 2013 could be just as bad.
Many of 2012’s major storylines will be laid to rest this week, with champions crowned and players settled into their new teams. But for some, like Tebow and Howard, 2012 only cracked the lid on what’s expected to be a...
General manager Mike Tannenbaum‘s tenure in New York is over, and it’s all Tim Tebow‘s fault.
Well, that’s not necessarily true, but Tebow’s arrival did play a big part in Tannenbaum’s early exit in New York.
Tannenbaum was with the Jets for almost 15 years in various capacities, including as general manager since 2006. He brought the team back to the brink of an AFC...
Remember when Tim Tebow‘s presence was supposed to light a fire under Mark Sanchez and thus make him a better quarterback? Me neither.
In a season in which everything went wrong for the Jets, Sanchez was particularly brutal, tossing 18 interceptions and just 13 touchdown passes while completing only 54.3 percent of his passes. In other words, not only did the fourth-year quarterback...
