Found May 01, 2013 on Football Nation:
Never before have we seen someone so celebrated and loved, win a playoff game over a storied franchise, and be traded away like he was nothing to a circus of a team only to sit behind a QB that has no business starting a game in the NFL.  That was, of course, until we met Tim Tebow. Tebow was not only a QB in the NFL, he was a savior.  He inspired millions of people across the globe, had his own signature move, a website devoted to people mimicking that move, and the top selling jersey in professional football.  But this was not enough for the Broncos to keep the unorthodox gunslinger around.  Not when a gem like Peyton Manning was on the market.  So the trade was complete and Tebow was sent to the Jets, who then gave their other QB an insanely large amount of guaranteed money so he wouldn't think he was being replaced.  Now one year later, Tebow has been released and Sanchez is sputtering along in a five-headed QB controversy with a mixture of veterans and newly drafted Geno Sm...

Moon: Tebow won't cut it in CFL

Warren Moon, who spent six seasons in the Canadian Football League, believes that Tim Tebow has no greater chance of success in that league than he does in the NFL.

Is former Jets QB Tim Tebow really that awful?

With the recent release of QB Tim Tebow by the NY Jets, it got me wondering just how bad he really was. After taking several things into account I have decided that despite what his detractors say he was not all that bad. If you just look at the usual passing stats themselves, you will see very pedestrian numbers. He completed 173 of 361 for a 47.9 completion percentage, which is...

Tebow quotes Scripture after being cut loose by Jets

Tim Tebow wasn't available for comment after being unceremoniously cut by the New York Jet early Monday morning, but the mishandled quarterback did post a Scripture verse on his Twitter account. "Proverbs 3:5-6:trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight," he...

Van Pelt calls out ESPN over Tebow coverage

Earlier today, the live daytime episodes of SportsCenter once again relapsed into an episode of TebowMania.  Much to the surprise of nobody who has observed ESPN over the last year and a half, SportsCenter went all in on Tebow, dedicating almost half of their airtime to a man who faces a struggle just to make another NFL roster. But this morning in particular was distressing because...

Montreal Alouettes Own Tim Tebow's CFL Rights; Would Be Backup

TSN's Dave Naylor is reporting that the CFL's Montreal Alouettes own Tim Tebow's CFL rights and would welcome him onto the team as a backup. Alouettes general manager Jim Popp told TSN that if Tebow were to join the Alouettes, his role would be similar to his with the New York Jets, saying: "If he wants to come to Canada he would be in the same situation as the...

Lingerie Football League Offers Tim Tebow a Job as QB Coach

The market for Tim Tebow is complicated. If you bring him in, then you have a circus on your hand from day 1, especially if you bury him on your depth chart like the Jets did. I am not sure he will get another opportunity in the NFL. It is a gift and a curse, if he wasn’t so famous, he wouldn’t have been drafted so high to begin with, but because of that fame (and the fact he...

CFL GM Says Tim Tebow Would Have To Compete To Be A Backup

I think at this point a lot of people commenting on Tim Tebow’s release from the Jets and his future are just piling on, but that comes with the territory when you are who he is. Tebow’s CFL rights are owned by Montreal Alouettes and their GM Jim Popp was asked about Tebow possibly making the trip north to play for them. You would assume that Tebow having been an NFL starter...

From Geno To Tebow – Jets Circus Shrinks In Size

The simultaneous roster changes that marked Geno Smith’s arrival and Tim Tebow’s exit show that John Idzik’s Jets do not value ESPN cameras, newspaper headlines and jersey sales over the notion of putting pieces in place to win. The Jets never had a plan for Tebow beyond hoping and praying that his abilities could somehow find a functional place within a sixty minute game....

Tebow and the Patriots

He mentions two big reasons head coach Bill Belichick and offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels. He’s got plenty of connections to the Patriots, so they...

Jets Release Tim Tebow

In a move that surprised no one, the Jets released Tim Tebow. So ends one of the most bizarre moments in Jets history. As many of you know I haven’t been shy about saying that getting Tebow was a mistake and while so many thought the Jets were getting a winner, it was clear that it rattled Mark Sanchez and that Tebow turned out to be anything but what his press clippings said he...

With Leather’s Watch This: Our Favorite Exotic Dancers Say Goodbye To Tim Tebow

By now, we all know that Tim Tebow was unceremoniously released by the New York Jets after what can best be described as one pooptastic season with the team. Tebow barely saw the field for anything other than punt protection, and the infamous New York sports media routinely gave him the business, as if he were the sole problem with the franchise.However, lost in the debate as to...

Klein should learn from the Tebow QB experiment

KANSAS CITY, Mo. Heres the thing that doesnt make a shred of sense: Collin Klein is a smart guy. Surely, hes watched enough of Tim Tebow to know that this is not the path that lands you at Candy Castle in the end. Surely, hes seen enough NFL games to know that quarterbacks whove been trained to run first, run second, and throw third usually wind up getting their knees bent like...
