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.
The Tebow mannequin, No. 15, is seen sitting on the bench next to Mark Sanchez (No. 6) in a display of New York Jets and New York Giants players.
It never worked out for Tebow in New York, who failed to beat out Sanchez for the starting QB job and was used seldomly all season. The Jets failed to make the former Heisman Trophy winner useful outside of occasional wildcat sets.
Doesn't look like Tebow's mannequin is going anywhere anytime soon. The real Tebow will have a shot at redemption in 2013 when he hopefully signs with a new team.

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...
Dick's Sporting Goods is on to something. The Dicks's store in West Nyack, NY, creatively displayed the dummy bearing Tebow's jersey as benched in a display that set every other Jets and Giants player in a manly stance.
You might say the display diss'd Tebow, but I think it mocked the Jets for their wasteful trade for a first-round Draft pick player...
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 Jets aren’t even in the playoffs but they’re the ones getting all the headlines — for all the wrong reasons.
From firing key staff members to dealing with a highly publicized quarterback controversy, the Jets have their hands full this offseason, and one New York store is making the most of their embarrassing campaign by taking one last cheap shot at the team’s decisions involving...
Poor Tim Tebow. It seems like even after last year’s miracle run with the Denver Broncos he still can’t catch a break. The worst part is that it’s really through no fault of his own. He’s taken roughly 80 snaps this season and happened to be injured the one week they finally had no choice but to replace Mark Sanchez. Then he’s suddenly the third string quarterback and...
At a Dick's Sporting Goods in New York someone decided to have some fun with the Jets in this store display. As you can see, Tim Tebow is riding the bench. And, of course, we're pretty sure Mark Sanchez has fumbled the football.

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.

Tim Tebow is not for everyone, he is a limited passer and needs to be with a coach and team that will work with him and build around his limitations. The kid is a winner and a nightmare for modern NFL defensive coordinators to prepare for. Think about the 1st Playoff game Tebow played in and the DC he was against…. Dick Lebeau, From the Powerhouse Pittsburgh Steelers. A man who...
If allowed to perform in a spread offense, legendary college coach Urban Meyer expressed confidence that useless New York Jets employee Tim Tebow could thrive under center in the NFL like Robert Griffin III, Russell Wilson, Colin Kaepernick and Cam … Continue reading →
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...
Check out the ink that New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan apparently sports on his right bicep.I'm no expert, but it appears to be a tattoo of his wife wearing nothing but a No. 6 New York Jets jersey -- the same as much-maligned quarterback Mark Sanchez. Oh, and did I mention that the tattoo's likeness also resembles Jets quarterback Tim Tebow's signature "Tebowing...
