Tebow will get the coveted NFL's tough guy award for the phantom block he did on the blocked punt

Tebow should pick up a skirt and pom poms and do what he's really good at---cheerleading.

The other 66% just simply refused to cast a vote for a bench warmer....

Sad comments by Laughing Bear Fan, Tebozos Unite and Chads. Three individuals with probably no life and probably never even touched a football.

At Tim Tebow's very young age, he has accomplished more on and off the field than the three of you have and probably will accomplish combined.

Get a life.

Tebow shows tact and maturity. So disconcerting to hear such hatred for someone whom has never trashed anyone. American sports casting as well as comments from the fans reveals its true form when the likes of Tebow show class and maturity. What Daddy wouldn't want his daughter to date a man like Tebow?

Here they come, soccer mom's, pedophiles (churchgoers), the sheeple, all demanding via social media that Teblow becomes the starting QB for the Jets. They would rather watch 58 minutes of terrible football instead of the 47 the Jets currently are showing.

I can appreciate what TT did at Florida although his teams were stacked 4 places deep for every position. Each backup could've been an All American anywhere else for the most part but yes, TT was tough to stop but remember if you have a stacked team where each player demands attention and then add a mobile QB to the mix that QB SHOULD tear it up relentlessly.

TT's style of play is great for high school and college and every so often in the pros or at least it was until Belichick and co. blew it up so now the blue print is out on how to crush TT.

You're asking any team that has TT on it to revamp it's entire offense, personnel and playbooks and even staff and adapt to TT's strong points all while the guy isn't very accurate and possesses a low QBing IQ to begin with. Say you do all that. All former players contracts still have to be honored so you're double paying for the old and new and then TT gets hurt and we see at times how reckless TT can be so it could be a severe injury so what now? You just can't usher in a pocket QB for a spread option offense because it defeats the whole purpose.

The Jets and possibly the Jags are most likely TT's last stops before he finally has enough cash to build his mega church so brace yourself now for the inevitable.

TT and all that needs to be changed to accommodate him in the end just really isn't worth it and if it was, well we wouldn't be having this chat now would we?

Says the guy posting from his mom's spare bedroom, smoking pot and listening to Pink Floyd all day.

Like that? ASSumptions suck, don't they?

This young man is a crappy backup QB on a crappy NFL team. Period. He is not a role model or a savior.

Perhaps Tebow should get a chance to start in NY considering what Sanchez isn't doing for the Jets. Tebow might not be the most gifted QB in football, but he did seem to know how to win in Denver after taking over for another struggling starter. I can remember a few QBs with limited abilities such as Billy Kilmer, Len Dawson, and Brian Sipe who were successful NFL QBs and many gifted QBS who were NFL flops such as Jamarcus Russell, Tim Couch, and Mike Phipps.

So true. As unorthodox as Rex Ryan is you'd think he'd have already utilized TT if he actually saw something he could utilize. It's been said already but Elway and Fox shipped TT off(for laughably nothing) for obvious reason and now Rex isn't using him so how can one still believe TT is actually capable on the professional level? Those great players and coaches are obviously seeing something that tells them this guy just doesn't have what it takes.

Because, deep down, Tebow fans are hoping He will visit their trailer parks and autograph their bibles. Whether or not Tebow can play is far down the list for them.

Most people are not calling him a great QB to begin with. How does that make him overrated. He did win some games and led a struggling Denver team to the playoffs. He certainly has potential and seems to be a determined player who doesn't quit. Just because he is not the most gifted QB around does not mean he is incapable of being an effective NFL QB. Some of the more effective QBs in NFL history were not the most gifted ones and some of the most gifted ones were notorious flame-outs.

Denver was going nowhere fast when Tebow was inserted as the starter. Maybe it was a fluke and maybe it wasn't. Who can tell for sure. How about those Bears who were notorious underachievers for years until this season? Should we not give Tebow the same benefit of the doubt?

Manning is only 4-3 as a starter. Tebow was a better 7-4. Statistics do not always tell the whole story when it comes to winning and losing. Manning's obscenely high salary also clogs up salary cap space.

The Bears underachieved their way to the superbowl with the imortal Rectal Grossman as QB, and guess what? They lost to the Colts.
It is fair to say All Florida QB's carry on the proud Florida tradition of SUCKING
