Because Tebow has managed to make his name recognizable to the public and news about him draws attention. Not because he's a good QB, but rather because of controversial attention-whoring tactics related to his religion.
 
2012-09-13 12:25:51 PM  
Okay, I don't like Tebow, but this article is worthless: "Gary Myers of the New York Daily News suggested that possibility in a Thursday column, quoting an unnamed league source..."

Tebow didn't say anything. All anger should be directed at Gary Myers of the New York Daily News for writing this drivel.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: backup NFL quarterback is the greatest job in the world, especially if you're behind a durable starter. He'll make more money standing on the sideline holding a clipboard for a couple of years than I will make in my lifetime, without suffering the concussions and knee injuries and other damage that would make life after football more difficult.

Hey, Tebow looked really good last week playing every position but QB.

Really good.

Tebow drives pageviews, like Favre before him. There are always two, the small dicked master and the religious apprentice.

I get that, but quoting "unnamed sources" to only share their speculation, instead of actual information they may or may not have gotten directly from the player-in-question's camp seems utterly unnecessary.

If Tim Tebow buys a loaf of wild yeast sourdough and it goes moldy on him after only a week, will that turn him off artisan breads in general? Will he turn to Roman Meal or Ironkids? Stay tuned for our special 4-part report...

Yes, a game where you have one fewer down to get a first down and passing is even more important than it is in the NFL really wants inaccurate QBs.

Precisely! The running attributes are helpful playing in the CFL. Most of the starters here now are pretty good with their feet. But once a defence figures out that he can't hit the broad side of a barn with a pass it gets pretty easy to send 7 or more players on a blitz, turning football Jesus into a poutine like substance on the field.

He posed as Christ on the cross, so I can see him going with the bread of Pontius Pilate.

"Was I trying to do anything as far as the crucifix? Absolutely not," said Tebow, who added that the photo was taken six years ago and "wasn't trying to do anything like that."

Right. That's why he had his legs crossed as well. 

And why does the time of the photo matter? Because he realizes how to manipulate his coverage now?

I absolutely agree. Still, tabloids have crafted an entire industry on doing just that (and only that). Actually, 'Bat-boy Appears in Volcano with Satan' is almost entirely groundless speculation.

As a running back with the ability to threaten options and keep the defence honest, maybe. As a quarterback, no.
As noted, passing is more important in Canadian football and you need more yards per play. Even rushing Tebow would be worse off in the CFL and he also loses out in that the CFL tends not to use big running backs pounding it up the middle because getting stopped for no gain on first down is far worse and you don't have the ability to kill the clock (fewer downs, shorter play clock, more stoppages). The only real benefit to him would be the general decrease in skill making him more competitive, but it is a league that most values his weaknesses not his strengths.

At the moment that is probably the best position for him in the NFL, too. Of course it is too early to say for sure that he can't develop better passing abilities and become a good scrambling quarterback instead of a throwing running back.
In either league it would be gimmicky, but could give a team with a mediocre QB and extra threat and make a difference.

Two-time Florida Player of the Year as a QB.
FHSAA's All-Century Team (top 100 Florida HS football players) as a QB.
2007 Heisman winner (first sophomore ever) as a QB.
BCS championship in 2008 as a QB.
13-1 2009 season as a QB.
Only three-time recipient of the Gators' most valuable player award, having been chosen by his teammates in 2007, 2008 and 2009. As a QB.
Two-time Maxwell Award winner (one of two two-time winners) as a QB.
College career: All-time SEC leader in passer efficiency, completion percentage, passing touchdown to interception ratio, rushing yards by a quarterback, rushing touchdowns (any position), and total touchdowns responsible for.
First NFL start: 100.5 passer rating, the highest ever in team history for a professional debut.
2011 NFL season is well-known enough; he was at the very least the catalyst for change that turned the team from a 1-4 joke to a play-off team.

All the college stuff proves he can be a great passer. He did have poor stats in his role as a starter for Denver. Let's see if there are any other QBs who did poorly at some point in their career.

I do believe there is math involved in Tebow's criticisms...like the time it takes him to take a snap, set and throw, i believe he was a inefficient throwing form from what i have read, adding a second or two to his time to pass...in the NFL an extra second is the difference between a completion for a TD and a sack or, if you are really in the wrong zone, a fumble as you bring the ball back to throw...but sure, compare him to QBs statistically, as if that means anything.

God I'm so sick of hearing that. Better potential qb's have watched their entire careers go by without getting the chances Tebow has had. He's in his third year. After the first two he was essentially picked up for the NFL equivalent of free. There were five rookie starters last Sunday and several second year qb's as well so there are obviously scads of teams willing to go with young qb's - just not him. If NFL personnel managers thought he could play, he'd be playing.

That said, the writer is trolling. There's no evidence Tebow said a damn thing. Fact is if he'd have really wanted a chance at starting he'd have picked Jax, not NY and he did have a say in the matter. He's kinda turning into Sarah Palin if you ask me. He knows he can't do THE job... but all the speculation leads to exposure which leads to money. that's why he picked the big apple (fox news) instead of being governor (competing for the jax qb job).

You Tebow fanbois are hilarious. The book on beating Tebow has already been written. Contain the pocket and play tight man to man coverage. Two outcomes will occur. He will eat the ball, highest sack per attempt in the league in 2011 or he will throw it away because he lacks the accuracy to fit the ball into a tight window, 46% completion percentage. Not sure why Dick LaBeau couldn't figure that out....

He will eventually end up in Jacksonville, start for five or six years of "just-missed-the-playoffs" and then spend the rest of his time in the booth.

The tragedy of Tim Tebow is that he is an excruciatingly nice guy, not that he's a shiatty quarterback.

If Tim Tebow were black, he would have been converted to a running back in college at the latest. But if he were black, he'd probably actually have talent. None of this matters though because if he were black we wouldn't be hearing about him so goddamn much unless he pulled an OJ.
