Oh my God, contemplating Bayless' O face just turned me completely asexual.

I Bayless would carry Tebow's baby if it were possible.

Can't wait for him to match wits with Lee Corso, Lou Holtz and Desmond Howard.  The four of them would form the Black Hole of Pigskin Commentary and ESPN would vanish from the earth.

Technically they won't be talking about him on CBS anymore.

I wonder if Tebow could have gotten my Dolphins a win over either Buffalo or New York over the past two weeks.  Ya know, since all he does is win.

Joshy McDaniels will make Tebow his QB when he starts as head coach for the Browns.  Tebow won't even broadcast one game with the SEC network.
 
2013-12-30 09:55:29 PM  
Please restrict him only to college games, I never watch those anyway

That's true, but at least Tebow can speak properly unlike most former athletes. I wish they'd replace Desmond with someone, even Tebow.

They gay-married him?

For newcomers, Tim Tebow was like the Duck Dynasty of professional football there for a while.  So you know.

And Stephen Smith just got replaced.

I think you just divided by zero.

Best part: ESPN has their own hiring of Tebow running on their ticker tonight.

Really. Go look.

Josh McDaniels will take who Herr Banner gives him, and he'll like it!

Maybe this is a stupid question (not a big sports guy), but how likely is it that he can still pursue a football career after being an analyst for X number of months/years? I'm assuming you wouldn't be in top form if you weren't still practicing constantly. Not necessarily saying this is the end of his career, but I would think taking a break from playing would just make it that much harder to get back into it.

Oh, he'll never play again. So this whole thing is a win-win-win for everyone. The only people who will hear about Tim Tebow for the next three years are people who care about SEC football, who coincidentally are also the only people in the country who are happy to hear from him. People who like him get to have him around and the rest of the nation doesn't have to be aware of his existence anymore. I don't know how this could have gone any more perfectly.

He basically didnt play at all last year (minus a few wildcat snaps) and none this year.  Without looking it up, he didnt play much his first year and his second year was the golden year we all remember.  So he doesnt have a ton of snaps.  Once he gets behind the desk, I think thats basically him done for.  I mean John Kitna came back and suited up, but damn.
Plus I think he's going to suck on tv.  Ive seen him on tv and still seems to have the cadence of an 8 year old.  However, I remember Ray Lewis at the beginning of the year and now and he has vastly improved.  But I expect Emmitt Smith levels of fail.

Ok, thought so. It was just my hunch as a layman, but I understand it's incredibly demanding to be an active player, so I thought it was odd for him to say that he's still pursuing his career as a quarterback.

few people are more qualified to discuss SEC football than the polarizing signal-caller. After all, Tebow played four seasons at Florida from 2006 through 2009, winning the Heisman Trophy in 2007 as a sophomore and helping lead the Gators to BCS National Championships in 2006 and 2008. He is the SEC's all-time leader in total career touchdowns with 145 and career rushing touchdowns with 57.

I honestly have no idea how to even process this PR statement.

None of it is technically wrong, but all of it is technically wrong.

As an avid sports fan, I can honestly say that I think there's a fair amount of sports obsessed dudes and commentators that start to cross the line from enjoying the competition and achievement of pro athletes into homosexuality.

This hiring is the pinnacle of that.
 
2013-12-31 01:32:09 AM  
Hard to be insightful when you never say anything critical about anyone, but he lacks any sort of homespun charm or humor to make him entertaining in that respect either. He's like vanilla ice cream without the vanilla.
 
2013-12-31 01:47:19 AM  
Good for him. He seems like he tries to be a decent guy, and his faithful followers can hang on his every appearance without the rest of us wondering if he will be the go-to guy if our starting QB gets hurt.

Sure, laugh about the prospect but look at Indy's year without Peyton. Some teams don't actually expect their backup QBs to play. He has postseason experience. Some owner would take a chance. I'm sure of it.

I hope he uses this time to polish his elocution and has a wonderful, fun career in the booth cheering on those who chase the same dream he did. And never allow his faithful to threaten another NFL team's fan base culture.

On the bright side, he might be able to toss to a commercial break.
It'd be the first successful toss he's done since college.

2013-12-31 05:25:04 AM  
I wonder how the bible thumper I work with would feel about this. She felt the reason why he didnt win a super bowl ever year was because the NFL was very anti christian.
 
2013-12-31 06:13:08 AM  
This makes complete sense for ESPN. They have a new regional cable network coming next year, focused on the SEC, so of course they are going to want to sign former SEC athletes to work as on-air talent. Tebow is ridiculously popular with some groups of people, and ridiculously polarizing for most of the rest. In either case, his appearances should drive higher ratings for this fledgling network, as long as he can string together a few sentences without drooling on himself. Having seen Tebow on other television broadcasts as an analyst and commentator, I think he'll be fine.

He won't be replacing Kirk Herbstreit anytime soon, but certainly could develop into a decent on-air analyst in time.  Think of it this way, he doesn't have to throw a football in this job, so potentially he could do very, very well. Only time will tell.

I was going to say the Duck guys have way better accuracy.
