Well, that, and the fact that he's a shiatty QB.

If I was Tebow, I'd sue ESPN for making it impossible for him to find a job. I'm sure they are a dozen teams willing take a chance on Tebow has something other than a QB but refuse to sign him because they don't want the circus.

Tebow could have a job as a shiatty QB on just about any NFL roster.

Tebow can't get a job because ESPN, not because of his shiattiness.

Also, Dave Fleming and/or his editors are gutless for blaming "the media" instead of ESPN for Tebowmania.

Tebow's ego is what is keeping him out if the NFL.

From TFA:

Eventually, with help from ESPN and a disastrous trade to the Jets, Tebow's messianic melange of faith, football and fame mushroomed into a nauseating, ratings-driven phenomenon so huge, all-consuming and annoying that it actually became taboo to even mention his name for no other reason than, well, we had already talked about him too much.

Tebow's circus is probably partially responsible for him not being able to land a 3rd string job on a bad team.

All these Tebow articles read like they were typed with one hand.

/wonder if he'll ever come out

Sounds like ESPN decided they couldn't milk anything else out of him.

Yes, one little blurb partially blaming ESPN.  That's not nearly enough accountability.

ESPN and Tebow.

Is this what is meant by a co-parasitic relationship?  One has to feed off the other to thrive?  If that's the case, no wonder it fell apart so badly so quickly.

THe Jets are fully responsible for screwing Tebow.

Tebow had 8 attempts passing last year.  EIGHT.

Every time he was put into the game, it was the same play.  Running into the pile straight up the middle.

You can't call Tebow a shiatty QB when you give him zero opportunity to develop.

Yeah, cuz coaches don't see him in practice or anything. He just *HAS* to get into a live game before the masses can pass judgement. And the opinion of the masses really carries weight in the coach's office.

And 2011 never happened in your mind either.

Sadly, that's still better than you'd expect from unfree modern narcissistic media. Even that tiny mea culpa from espn is better than anything the duke lacrosse players got from Nancy Grace...

Did you see Sanchez play?  Sanchez and Tebow were equally shiatty in practice.  And there comes a point, after watching Sanchez play like hot garbage in a live game, that you give someone else a chance.

And even if someone plays AMAZINGLY in practice and then stinks up the field in a live game, REPEATEDLY, don't you have to look for other options?

They didn't even give Tebow an option.  They just ran him into the pile.

Eight attempts.  Six made, BTW.

BTW, the Sports Media is also to blame for the mess at Rutgers.

Rice had to be fired but Pernetti was handcuffed by the administration.  Then when the video comes out, the administration fires Rice (finally) but then railroads Pernetti.

They did. It just wasn't Tebow.

Maybe if they hadn't kissed his ass so much when he was at Florida to a point where it became obvious to other athletic directors the SEC needed to protect him then it wouldn't gotten to this point.

Well, considering he has the same agent as a certain coach for the New York Jets that Woody refuses to fire might explain why he was underdeveloped.

If anyone needs to be sued, it's him.

It would have been much more entertaining to watch the Jets with Tebow on the field, sanchez was soo god awful loved the jets fan in our fantasy pool that refused to let him go,

Honestly think though that fox and elway really wanted to lose with him and tried hard to sabotage their season, and the jets situation was a joke, I have never seen a coach so stubborn to stick with a starter that had checked out mentally and no willing to try anything to win just as a what the hell put tebow in and let him go,

Yes, by calling those nefarious pass plays during LIVE football games. That's how you sabotage Tebow. You ask him to be a NFL QB and you let people watch.

You truly are a great football mind to have seen through their diabolical ruse.

know how i can tell youve never seen Tebow practice?

Youre not gonna have a lot of faith in a guy in a game situation when he cant hit a wide open man with no pressure in practice.

Exactly.  Why is Tebow some magical exception to the rule that you earn your starting spot in practice?  Every team I've played on has been that way.  If you play well in practice, you earn a starting spot.  Just ask Russell Wilson.

Hey I think the guy is not that great as a QB in general, but you can play to someones strengths as much as possible if you want to win, I watched that first game where they lined him up in the I formation repeatedly, the guy is terrible with his steps and drop backs, and short passes, they never really seem to play to his strengths, I live in NC watched john fox orchestrate offenses that were god awful when he wanted to win, and he made it to the Superbowl with Jake "bojangles" Delhomme that regularly tossed it to the other team, a living breathing turn over machine, I think between the two of them they could have come up with something more, if they had wanted to.

Also add Tebow's inability to read defenses as he never audibled out of disasterous plays in Denver. It's pretty much the first topic spoken about with Bronco insiders on local radio.

Not hating on the kid, but it's the NFL. He should have tried an alternate position.
