I like those guys that run the offense on the field...
The quarterback?
Yeah that's it. I like it when they..ughh...move their arm fast
Throw the ball?
Yeah that's it, and with Dish's new Hopper, I don't miss a throw. It skips right over when Tebow is on the field. I'd like to meet the guy that invented the Hopper. That way I miss ugggg...
Another 3 and out?
Yeah that's it....THANKS HOPPER!!!!

Quality-wise, it's always -- even to this day -- been head and shoulders above cable- and dish-company DVRs. Unfortunately, it got too involved in trying to sell its hardware (where it has to compete with free or subsidized cable/dish DVRs), instead of focusing on just licensing its software to hardware manufacturers.

Love my TiVo Series 3 HD. It does what I need it to do. A couple years back they offered my lifetime service on the unit at less than the cost of a one year renewal, so I snatched it up. Of course, that's tied to the physical unit which is why I'm having a new pre-programmed hard drive shipped to me right now for the one that just died...

I've spent the last week forced to choose between sticking to scheduled viewing times *and* commercials or not watching TV. I chose the latter (but I'm having withdrawals).

/PyTivo is a nice little program too for all those movies I hypothetically may have "acquired" from the interweb.

Are you referencing the year where he completed 46% of his passes? Had less than 130yds/game and a 73QBR?

Yes, he completed a pass over the middle to a crossing receiver who then ran 60yds for a TD. farking crown him.

As a Bronco fan, he should have stayed in Denver and learned how to be a QB from Manning. But I guess he would rather learn from the masters that have developed Sanchez into the powerhouse that he is...

Yes I am talking about the year that he helped take his team to the playoffs on the back of a defense playing out it's ass most of the year.

Yes I am talking about a playoff game where he threw for over 300 yards (including making the game winning pass)

And Elway wanted him out, period. He thinks like you do, that it was a fluke and such. IMO, you are completely incorrect to suggest Tebow was going around syaing "Well golly gee, if Peyton is here then you need to trade me sir! Thanks!"

I've always thought that Elway used Manning as his cover to get rid of Tebow. The only way he could ever conceivably run Tebow out of town was to bring in a legendary type of QB.

Even if Manning didn't work out, Elway would have been able to start with a QB of his choice and call it a "gamble" that didn't pay off.

It doesn't hurt that players in New York are calling Tebow terrible off the record right now.

They allowed him to choose between the trading partners and he picked the Jets.

From everything I hear about Tebow, you're right about him being a genuinely nice guy. One guy I know who knew him in undergrad describes him basically as, "so nice you want to hate him but you can't because he's just too genuinely nice." Apparently his brother's kind of a tool who puts on a nice guy act though.

Don't know if even being Tim Tebow would be enough to get him elected mayor of Gainesville though. Aside from the fact that he's not really the brightest bulb, Gainesville is the blue dot in the sea of red that is North Florida, so he's probably too much the fundy conservative. Jacksonville, on the other hand, he could probably be mayor for life if he wanted it.

He is not a top 15 QB. Your anger at him should be at the media. The internet, as is expected of the unwashed masses, blame Tebow for being on ESPN and NFL network all last year. he can't control that.

Tebow is an attention whore. How old is he and he already has a biography? He only went to NYC because they allowed him to play a position he has no business playing but, most importantly, because it's the biggest media market in the U.S.

Tebow is an attention whore.

Yeah, well, that's what happens when the media over hypes somebody as much as they do him. It's going to create a backlash.

Still think the whole "looking for a nice, wholesome Christian girl and I'm just too busy to date" thing is cover for the fact that he's very well acquainted with Narnia, though. The fact that when he finally gets romantically linked to somebody, it's professional beard Camille Belle doesn't really help either.

Oh, don't get me wrong. I think they are absolute cock knockers for saying that stuff to a reporter. But with the Broncos at 6-3 and Tebow being "terrible" in New York, Elway has plenty of cover for his move now.

Some of my family (why yes, they are fundies) in the Denver area were seriously pissed that Timmy was shown the door.

He went 7-4 and had 12 TDs and 6 INT (not counting the TD's and lost fumbles during that time period).

The only game he single handedly lost was the Bills game in week 16 with the 3 pics.

At the very least, he was a solid game manager who gave you the running dynamic too.

And allowing him to choose where he would be traded is not what you had originally mentioned. You made it sound like he chose to leave Denver because he wouldn't be willing to play behind Peyton. If that's not what you meant, that's cool then.

Peyton Manning landing in Denver was Elway's dream. Tebow had nothing to do with it. Did it provide an easy excuse/reason to get rid of Tebow and his circus? Of course. But Peyton Manning ending up in Denver dwarfs anything about Tim Tebow.

Denver has an MVP, SB MVP, hall of fame QB now. Tebow is obviously not in the same class as Manning. It is a complete joke for anyone to think Denver didn't make the correct decision in signing Manning. Good riddance to Tebow and his crazy ass fans.

Denver's reasons are beside the point now, the Jets took Tebow ostensibly to put a fire under Sanchez or to replace him if he continued to suck. Mark has went in the crapper again, yet they won't give Tebow any playing time.
If the Jets didn't intend to play Tebow, they shouldn't have traded for him.
You can biatch at Tebow all you want, but at this point it's hardly his fault when they won't let him even try.
They should trade Tebow to another team if they aren't going to let him play.
As far as the Jets go, I'm fine if they continue to lose, they aren't my team.

Of course they control somethings, so what? Most of overexposure he gets blamed for, which has been going on since college, he can't do anything about.

I don't think Tim calls up ESPN and says, 'Hey, put me on every day, and make it the Steelers vs. Tebow.' It's probably tough for him to deal with that stuff.

Jacksonville, on the other hand, he could probably be mayor for life if he wanted it.


this. Gainesville will NEVER elect a fundie mayor. EVER.

/lived there for 13 years.

Kurmudgeon: Denver's reasons are beside the point now, the Jets took Tebow ostensibly to put a fire under Sanchez or to replace him if he continued to suck. Mark has went in the crapper again, yet they won't give Tebow any playing time.
If the Jets didn't intend to play Tebow, they shouldn't have traded for him.
You can biatch at Tebow all you want, but at this point it's hardly his fault when they won't let him even try.
They should trade Tebow to another team if they aren't going to let him play.
As far as the Jets go, I'm fine if they continue to lose, they aren't my team.


I honestly think the Jets wanted Tebow for the press. He came pretty cheap 3 years/$6mill

Yeah they might have thought they could build some packages around him but they had just signed Sanchez to an extension giving him something like $12mil a year. The fastest way a coach/GM can get fired is to lock up significant cash on extending a player that you are going to sit in the first year of that extension. Sanchez was never going to see the bench this year regardless.

SirDigbyChickenCaesar: As a Bronco fan, he should have stayed in Denver and learned how to be a QB from Manning. But I guess he would rather learn from the masters that have developed Sanchez into the powerhouse that he is..


Elway wanted him out. It was not a trade request by Tebow.

Jim from Saint Paul: GreatGlavinsGhost: rynthetyn: The boy is not the brightest bulb by any account, he probably trusts his people to do everything for him and just does whatever they tell him to do.

I'm almost certain that he has some say as to how he is portrayed in the media. Maybe his parents do too.

Then there it is. We think he's a decent kid who people are overreacting about both negatively and positively.

You think he's a typical sports douche, looking for media coeverage any way he can get it.


You assume quite a bit there. I think he's a kid (Can he be called a kid anymore?) who is in way over his head. I'm guessing he has been pampered his entire life and has never faced any legitimate criticism. I feel sorry for him because it's obvious he has no real friends, only believers or followers I sincerely doubt there is one person in his life who can genuinely discuss his future in professional sports in a way that could be called realistic. Maybe the people around him are afraid that if he knew what his realistic NFL prospects are his feelings would be hurt and no one wants to do that to such a "nice kid".

Oh, and maybe all this "terrible" talk by "anonymous" Jets players is really just more PR from the Tebow Entertainment Empire? Maybe he's been asking for a trade and this will make it all that easy for both him and his fans. After all, his fans won't want him playing on a team with such mean players.

You know, hurting his feelings and everything.

It's supposed to be two different statements. As a fan I wanted him to stay but they traded him. He got to pick which of the trading partners he would go to. He chose the Jets.

DrewCurtisJr: GreatGlavinsGhost: Are you trying to say they don't control anything?

Of course they control somethings, so what? Most of overexposure he gets blamed for, which has been going on since college, he can't do anything about.

I don't think Tim calls up ESPN and says, 'Hey, put me on every day, and make it the Steelers vs. Tebow.' It's probably tough for him to deal with that stuff.


Except when he chooses not to play for tiny media market Jacksonville, but the biggest media market in the U.S., NYC.

That must really hurt him to have to be in such a position to get all that exposure.

Face it: he wants the coverage if only so he can proselytize.

You think when weighing a career decision about what team to play for the sole factor is what team has the biggest media market?
