PLAYERS: Tim Tebow
TEAMS: New York Jets

Written By Clifford, Santa Monica,   In the 47 years that I’ve been watching professional sports I’ve never seen more fuss made over an athlete who was less talented than Timothy Richard Tebow. To me, he’s the NFL’s answer to former NBA stiff Jon Koncak–a reserve center chosen by the Atlanta Hawks with the fifth pick in the 1985 draft. As I recall, Koncak was rewarded four years later with a 13 million dollar contract after compiling some of the most underwhelming stats I’d ever seen compared to his peers and his predecessors. So Tim Tebow wants to leave the Jets now that he’s about to be passed over in favor of the third string qb Greg McElroy?? LET HIM!!!! And hopefully the door won’t smack him on his derriere on the way out… End, Clifford Santa Monica

Rex makes necessary switch to McElroy, not Tebow

Jets went from Super Bowl contenders to M-E-S-S

From nearly Super to just plain stupefying. That is what the New York Jets have become in a span of two NFL seasons.
