Tom Brady ‘really enjoyed’ being around Tim Tebow

New England Patriots Training Camp

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady told the “Dennis & Callahan Show” on WEEI Sports Radio in Boston on Tuesday that he would be fine if the team brought back Tim Tebow.

“I enjoy being around him very much,” Brady said. “He’s a very talented football player. To have a chance to spend a couple of months with him and kind of become a friend of his, was a great thing. We were yesterday talking about a lot of the quarterbacks that have been through our team over the years. Everyone brings a unique skill set and attitude to the table.

“I really enjoyed being with him. And you never know. Maybe, things in the NFL always — who knows, he could be back on the team at some point this year. I wish him nothing but the best. He’s really a great person and a great player.”

Tebow, 26, went 11-of-30 for 145 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in three preseason games with the Patriots.  He also had 91 yards rushing.

Patriots owner Robert Kraft appeared on CBS News’ CBS This Morning Tuesday and said again that he wished Tebow was on the team.

“I love Tim Tebow and I very much wanted him on the team,” Kraft told Rose on CBS This Morning, via CBSSports.com. “If you look at four of the last five years, we’ve only carried two quarterbacks. And when a cut-down time comes, you need those last three or four positions for depth, and we happen to have, I think, the finest quarterback in the history of the game, and he’s not going off the field except by injury. We have a great second-string quarterback. When he came in he came in as the third quarterback and we were all rooting for him.

“And life takes funny turns, so no one knows what’s going to happen in the future, but whatever he does I know he’s going to be a great success off the field and I’m rooting for him to get his opportunity on the field as well.”

Tebow is now a free agent after clearing waivers on Sunday.  The Montreal Alouettes own Tebow’s rights if he decides to play in Canada.

    Gosh I hope Tebow stays in the public eye. There are so few like him who exhibit great character and who would be a great role model for the youths of this great nation.

  • GodofHellfire

    Good thing the Florida NFL teams didn’t sign Tebow. He would have wrecked those teams!

    • Michael Crook

      Yeah, because all 3 Florida teams are doing so well. It is impossible to wreck something that is already wrecked and the Bucs and Jags are well beyond wrecked already.

      • joe f.

        I am a BIG BUCCANEERS fan and I wish the would pick Tim Tebow up he is a big steep forward from Mike Glennon.

    • joe f.

      GodofHellfire, are you kidding ?

  • Kllr

    Such BS… if they liked him so much they should have kept him… just be honest guys.

    • Redd_Melendez

      Maybe they didn’t need him?

      Ever think of that?

      Teams only have so much cap space for one position.

      • Kllr

        Just what I expect from a Raiders fan. You are supporting my point, genius.

        • Redd_Melendez

          Whether they need him or not is irrelevant to whether he can play as well as any other backup in the league. He has done more at this level than almost every back up. You actually made my point Genius….

  • cashtext4all.com

    Once Tebow fixes his throwing motion, he should be back in the NFL to dominate.

    • Jon Elmer

      It isn’t just his throwing motion. He needs to learn how to read a defense and not telegraph his passes, he needs to learn how to remember a playbook, how to stay in the pocket, how to make the right choices: he needs to learn how to be an NFL passing QB, and age 27 is awfully late to do it.

      • joe f.

        Jon, This is a easy one NOT TRUE.

      • Redd_Melendez

        I will bet you could not elaborate on your claims that you think make you sound knowledgeable.

        If it was too late Cleveland would not have even considered Brandon Weeden.

        • Jon Elmer

          Weeden is a far more talented quarterback than Tebow.

  • MarioG

    As nice a guy as Tebow is, he’s also arrogant and dumber than a box of rocks. Why? Because he didn’t have the common sense to realize that he wasn’t cut out to be a quarterback in the NFL. He would have made a very successful tight end or full back. Many excellent players have changed positions after going to the pros. Perhaps his old coach at Florida State, Urban Meyer, is partly to blame for not telling Tebow what his limitations are when he was still in college.

    • Amy L. Nelson

      First off…he went to Florida…not Florida State. Second…just because he doesn’t become a tight end does not make him arrogant. It’s his dream to be an NFL quarter back, not just play in the NFL. Giving up all that potential money he could make playing tight end doesn’t seem arrogant to me.

      • MarioG

        OK, he went to Florida. Of course an outstanding athlete who cannot play quarterback in the pros but insists he can is arrogant by definition. It’s like a 5′ 8″ basketball phenom in college dreaming of being in the NBA. A very few like Trey Burke have made it because they had outstanding skills. The evidence shows that Tebow does not have the skills for the QB position – if Brady and Belichick could not teach him nobody can – but he certainly does have what it takes to be outstanding at the fullback and tight end positions. For him to be unable to see that is what makes him dumb. Money apparently means little to him – he has probably already made in his few years in the pros than most people make in their lives, and now he’s a commentator – which is another position he can excel in because he does know college football better than most.

        • Redd_Melendez

          Do you even know the definition of the word? Seriously? Tebow is humble as can be and to say he is arrogant only proves you don’t know the definition of the word.

          • MarioG

            Tebow is humble as an individual but not as an athlete. If Tebow was “humble” he would recognize his limitations. It is supremely arrogant for him to think that he can play QB in the NFL instead of positions where his talents would be superior to most other players, full back or tight end.

          • Redd_Melendez

            Your answer makes you sound even worse now.

            Is that what you tell your kids? Focus on your limitations Son and don’t try to improve yourself. Don’t go for YOUR GOALS and settle for what you are already good at. Yep, pushing ones self and continuing to believe in yourself is just so ARROGANT. Like I said, you don’t even know the meaning of the word you use. Your answer says a lot about you and made you sound dumber than you did before.

            I would love to see your qualifications for making such claims that are anything but an exact science.

            Kurt Warner was told the same thing at one point and obviously nobody thought he could play QB in the league either..

            I sure hope you don’t instill that loser attitude in your kids.

            I love the part where you claim his talents at other positions would be “superior” too.

            The guy believes in himself and you think that’s arrogance and not confidence?

            Kurt Warner, Johnny Unitas, Len Dawson, Joe Montana, Joe Theisman, Doug Flutie, and Warren Moon are just a few of the names 9off the top of my head) that were told the same thing.

            I guess their “arrogance” annoyed you too right?

            Just come out and admit you don’t like the guy because of his Christian beliefs OK?

            Don’t cloak it in lame analogies like that.

          • MarioG

            Tim Tebow is no Kurt Warner – we all KNOW this now, at least those of us with more than half a brain.

            I told my kid to be realistic. I did not take a kid who had all As in math and ended up being a brilliant engineer and told him he could be an Olympic track star, which is what he wanted to be, but could not crack 11 secs for the 100 m.

            That’s the real comparison here not some bigoted comment about religion because you cannot think straight.

            If you know anything about football you would know that Tebow would make a great full back or tight end. He has already been tested and FAILED at being a QB. If Belichick and Brady could not help him no loser like you will be able to do so by leading him down a primrose path.

            Your kind of loser think has turned him into a TV commentator whereas he could be playing ball on Sundays – the dummy.

          • Redd_Melendez

            I never said he was Kurt Warner.

            Kurt Warner wasn’t Kurt Warner either until opportunity knocked.

            You are an idiot and I will bet you have never put on a pair of shoulder pads in your life.

            If you knew what you claim to know, you would know NE does not run an offense that accentuates his strengths. That alone shows me you don’t know the difference between what Denver ran and NE runs. The guy wanted to be a QB and not a TE and thats his business. Maybe he does not want to play another position? Also, what makes you think transitioning positions at the NFL level is that easy? There is a reason why it RARELY HAPPENS.

            You don’t fool me as you know nothing about what you are talking about.

            Yeah, Tim Crouch ring a bell?

            Making the transition you are talking about is even more difficult and if you knew the game like you claim, you would not need me to tell you.

          • MarioG

            You are as dumb about football as a box of rocks. You don’t know beans about football or you would know that being a great college player means nothing at the next level.

            Tebow has been tested now by several teams who know far more about football than you do, and has been found wanting as a QB.

          • Redd_Melendez

            You lack comprehension skills.

            First, I mentioned Warner to show the science is anything but exact. Obviously, most NFL scouts felt he could not play either. Next, Tebow is as good as half the backups in the NFL.

            I was not COMPARING the two as you are defining it.

            You are so busy arguing semantics that you are assuming I think he is star material.

            Tebow is as good as most NFL backups and nothing changes that.

            I am very aware of the transition and its challenges but saying TT is not as good as Charlie Whitehurst (never thrown an NFL pass), Matt Mc Gloin, Brock Osweiller (sp?), Chad Henne, etc. is laughable.

            Never did I say he was star material.

          • MarioG

            None of your sophistries change the fact professionals far more savvy about football have looked at Tebow closely and DECIDED that he is not fit to be an NFL QB.

            None of your sophistries change the fact that he would be an awesome full back or tight end.

            None of your sophistries change the fact that Tebow doesn’t seem to be able to tell the difference, assuming he really wants to play in the NFL.

            Having said that, he is likely to be a highly successful football analyst in the college ranks because he understands the game.

          • Redd_Melendez

            Wow you threw a hanging curve ball with that one slick.

            All one has to do is look at how teams are considering the locker room effects of Michael Sam to see teams evaluate personnel choices on more than just ability.

            You can’t argue that TT has NOT DONE more at this level than any backup in the NFL. Talk about sophomoric thinking.

            Nothing you spew changes that.

            You failed to prove the decision was based on talent and not the media circus.

            Nice try Junior!

          • MarioG

            Having problems focusing are you? You talk about everyone other than Tebow. The last time I checked, TT had been tried and rejected as a QB by the entire NFL. That’s why he ended up doing color commentary for the NCAA. What about this are you finding so hard to understand?

          • Redd_Melendez

            You failed to provide evidence it was on ability and not because of the locker room distractions. I am waiting for you to prove that instead of just claiming it but you keep falling short. Nothing you say changes the fact TT has ALREADY achieved more in the NFL than 80% of the backups. As long as this remains true and not in dispute, it is not logical to say its on ability alone.

            Simple logic!

            I am waiting for you to prove it was on ability alone and not due to the media circus.

            Tell me why Charlie Whitehurst, who has never thrown an NFL pass, is NFL material and TT is not.

            Your arguments are illogical and weak Chief!

          • MarioG

            The evidence lies in the decision of every team in the NFL.

            Belichick and Brady do not care about locker room distractions – they control their locker room.

            That is real life logic – not some sentimental and emotional clap-trap. Welcome to the real world.

            It is you who have no evidence of anything, which is why you keep talking about everyone else but what Tebow CAN do.

            As I’ve said along, Tebow is definitely NFL material – as a full back or tight end.

          • Redd_Melendez

            So you admit there are NO CONSISTENT STANDARDS?

            Is that right?

            Tell me why Charlie Whitehurst or Matt Mc Gloin are NFL material and TT is not when he has done more than them at this level.

            Quit ducking me because its a straight question using your standards.

            The Michael Sam controversy and the comments made by NFL scouts prove teams do look at more than talent and consider locker room effect. The claim NE does not care about that is unique and Tebows release could be explained away as they don’t have a need.

            Everybody else DOES care about the locker room effect.

            Tell mw hy Mc Gloin and Whiehurst are NFL material and TT is not.

          • Brain Fan

            “Your answer makes you sound even worse now.”

            Actually Redd, you’re the one who’s been making yourself look ridiculous here.

            “Is that what you tell your kids? Focus on your limitations Son and
            don’t try to improve yourself.”

            Logical fallacy. When a football player reaches the NFL level, it’s put-up or shut-up time. You had your dreams and goals and you had your time to get there. There has to come a time when you stop telling your son that he can be president if there isn’t a snowball’s chance in Arizona that he’ll get there. Maybe if Tim Tebow hadn’t been fed these ideas by all of his worshipers he might have had a more realistic perspective and made a career of it.

            You’re telling all of us how great he was earlier and later you’re admitting that he’s second rate. Then you list these top rate quarterbacks. WHICH IS IT? If he’s just a backup, why the heck are you arguing? If you’re going to sit there and compare Tim Tebow to Joe Montana, for crying out loud admit that you think he’s capable of being a Mark Sanchez! Mario is saying he isn’t an NFL quarterback. He’s right. You ADMIT he’s right by agreeing that he’s a backup at best. Again: why are you sitting there arguing?

            “Yep, pushing ones self and continuing to believe in yourself is just so ARROGANT. Like I said, you don’t even know the meaning of the word you use.”

            Okay. I’ll step up to the plate and introduce a few more words:

            Word one: delusional. He’s deluding himself by thinking that with his limitations, he can be a starting quarterback. None of the guys you mentioned had such fundamental failings.

            Word two: stubborn. Look: nobody wants him. Does he want to play pro football or is it quarterback or nothing? It seems reasonable to believe that he loves the game enough to want to play in some capacity.

            Words three and four: Julian Edelman. Edelman was a college quarterback. The New England Patriots signed him. He’s not going to play quarterback with Tom Brady on the team. Fast forward a few years and he’s the number one punt returner in the league and knocking back yards like he’s been a receiver all his life. Edelman is a beast with brains. Julian Edelman had Tom Brady and every New England Patriot fan forgetting that Wes Welker ever existed.

            “I sure hope you don’t instill that loser attitude in your kids.”

            Just because you’re losing an argument doesn’t mean you have to levy such disgraceful personal attacks by bringing his parenting into question. It’s disgusting and I’ll add this: TOTALLY un-Christlike.

            “The guy believes in himself and you think that’s arrogance and not confidence?”

            It’s delusion.

            “Kurt Warner, Johnny Unitas, Len Dawson, Joe Montana, Joe Theisman, Doug Flutie, and Warren Moon . . .”

            . . . in no way should be mentioned in the same post as Tim Tebow until he backs up his “confidence” with performance.

            “Just come out and admit you don’t like the guy because of his Christian beliefs OK?”

            Oh please. Don’t play the whining victim card and REALLY: I wish people like you would stop bringing Christ’s name down with you. People like you turn others away from the faith because they think we’re ALL a bunch of idiots.

        • Redd_Melendez

          So Spud Webb, Tiny Archibald, and Mugsy Bogues were all arrogant according to you?

          You just keep digging.

          You sound like if he isn’t driven by money there is something wrong with him.

          Maybe he didn’t dream of being a FB or TE.

          what a concept. A guy going for his dreams and not selling them out for the almighty dollar.

          • MarioG

            Boy, you sure can’t think straight. Tim Tebow is in a broadcasting booth not on the field like the others you mentioned. What good are the dreams you are making up for him no, huh? You don’t know beans about football; that’s pretty obvious.

          • Redd_Melendez

            I know that he took a team to the post season and won a game?

            I know quite a bit about the game my friend as I played pee wee through HS. I know that the others didn’t have the freak show circus of haters on them like Tebow did. that made his presence a distraction.

            The media distraction made him a pariah and not his play.

            Maybe you missed what he did when given the chance?

            Yeah, I only imagined that playoff win.

          • MarioG

            One playoff win is not a season. If you know so much about football you would know that Tebow was a great college player but, like many such Heisman Trophy winners, cannot play the same positions they played in college at the next level.

          • Brain Fan

            “I know quite a bit about the game my friend as I played pee wee through
            HS.”

            That’s one of the funniest things I’ve ever read on the internet. If it wasn’t sarcasm, which I’m sure it wasn’t, you just lost every last drop of credibility you had. Which was very little.

            “I know that the others didn’t have the freak show circus of haters
            on them like Tebow did.”

            It wasn’t that Tebow had so many haters. It’s ignoramuses like you who created so many haters. The guy is not a good NFL football player. Let me put this is basically as possible, though for the average Tebow worshiper it might not be enough: IF TIM TEBOW WAS EVEN AN *AVERAGE* FOOTBALL PLAYER, HE’D BE ON AN NFL FOOTBALL TEAM. I don’t care what he did in Denver. I don’t even have to look at the FACT that the only reason Denver made it as far as they did was because Dick Lebeau designed a ridiculously bad game plan against him. Here’s a clue for you all: Tim Tebow had a schtick in Denver. As soon as one other team figured out how to plan against him, he was toast, That’s because he is a one trick pony. Move on.

        He’s a loser as a QB. You’re a loser as a religious bigot. He would not be a loser as a full back or a tight end. Good grief! Where do morons like you come from?

  • doomedby2020

    Did you expect Brady to say anything less? What with the media and their lust for controversy?

  • joe f.

    Kllr i’m with you on that. Further more Tim should be playing in the N.F.L. It’s not true that he has a weak arm or that he is not accurate. Has anyone ever watch him play. And now with teams looking for quarterback that can be a dual threat well here he is. He just needs a chance.Al quarterbacks coming into the N.F.L. needs some guidance.I don’t believe what Tom Brady and the Patriots owners said about wanting to keep him. Because if they did they would have.

    • Jackson Raushenberg

      no it is true that he’s inaccurate, he has a 47.9 completion rating. he’s not an NFL qb, he’s a nice guy, a great college qb, but sometimes college doesn’t translate to the NFL. This is a prime example. And he had 2 chances… there is a reason why after all of the qb injuries this year he wasn’t picked up… because he’s not good.

      • Redd_Melendez

        The distractions are why as its a feeding frenzy of hate.

        Put him in a pure WCO scheme with adequate talent and good trapping guards and watch how his accuracy gets better.

        Its the media circus teams don’t want.

  • joe f.

    Tim Tebow’s numbers might not have been great but they are good enough to play in the NFL. numbers are important but it takes more then numbers to play. There are a lot of quarterbacks with Tebow like numbers. And let us not forget that he did bring the BRONCOS to the play-offs before they let him go. So the can bring in MANNING.

  • joefalco

    Tim tebow’s inability to throw at a pro-level is sad. He has speed, size, intelligence and the charisma to motivate a team to great heights. How does a Heisman winning devotee to the game get as far as the Pro’s without the ability to throw? Too bad he doesn’t have Cutlers arm. It might be Tebow in the Super Bowl today instead of Manning.

    • Redd_Melendez

      I disagree.

      I never thought the spread was a good fit for the NFL and Tebow would be a good fit in certain variations of the WCO with his arm.

      Your claim is a bit of a one size fits all analogy.

      Some guys don’t excel until they get in the right situation and some guys never excel because they never find this fit.

      Tebow has the work ethic to improve.

  • joe f.

    What a joke the Patriots cheat and lie why would any body believe that the Pats owner wanted Tebow to stay if he did Tim would still be there. If a time would give the man a chance I think people would be very surprised. He will be a NFL quarterback some time soon.

  • Rod Timmons

    A phoney baloney who wants to make lots of money exploiting the goodness of God who he is just the opposite of !

  • RudyM

    This is an old, old story. Tebow is now out of football. Had he been serious about playing in the NFL he would have gone to Canada, played a couple of years, improved his game and earned a return to the NFL

    • meanygreene

      how do you know he wasn’t serious?

    • Superdude

      Dont think it was that he was not serious, he just made a mistake by not taking that route. A stint in arena or Canada’s pass happy leagues would really help him develop as a passer. No amount of practice can replace game time reps.

    • unclealfie

      First post on this thread that made sense!

    • Mike

      He was cut because Denver got ahold of Manning.

      Had Manning not been available Tebow would still be their starter.

      I could name many QBs who had way less talent than Tebow who were starters and went nowhere. Also, QBs who showed way less than Tebow in as many games as Tebow played who went on to be Greats.

      Let us lay off of the nonsense that he didn’t have talent. He was given the chance because he was a practicing Christian, serious about it and Christianity is rejected by all entertainment outlets the media and liberal politics.

  • Leonard Bowers

    Where did tebow go not playing football ant more??????

    • Lee

  • Independent1776

    Bring him back…. look at how many teams need a quarterback…. even if he’s not the best…. his character and winning ways are good for a team… even on the practice squad.

    • sactospeaks

      Exactly, look at how many teams need a quarterback. However not one NFL team has even considered calling Tebow in for a look. Not one. The silence is deafening.

      • hjs3

        Bad mechanics in your throwing arm will do that…

        • johnnydogood2525

          Are you referring to the SEC all time passing efficieny record holder Tebow?

          • hjs3

            Something apparently happened on the way from the SEC to the N.F.L. is all I can figure….
            Of course this year the SEC stalwarts will have Mr. Winston to cheer on starting with the Combine on February 20th in Chicago.
            Hearing they are setting-up an especially prepared “sun-dial” out in the parking lot for his 40 times….
            Can you confirm that?

          • willets2006

            I’m on your side to bring Tebow back and the only thing I can think of that’s causing his passing ability not to be as good as it was when he set the record for the Gators is he had that concussion. I’m not saying that’s it but it’s the only thing I can come up with. Go Tebow as I’m one of his greatest fan’s.

          • hjs3

            I’ll skip the court of public opinion as they are largely defined by the herd ethic. But that said, I think Mr. Tebow even here in ’15 post Super Bowl would “still” bring a ton of unwanted attention to any team that adopted him. New England took a brave whack at the apple last Pre-Season for the simple reason that they could afford the luxury in that time frame. They also defend controversy about as well as any team in all of Professional sports. Brady was healthy, looking good on the field and the kid Grappolo was doing his rookie thing. Belichick, a rare giver of accolades gave Tebow a solid endorsement as an athlete, Kraft, the owner and a practicing Jew gushed about him and almost sounded winsome and Brady was very respectful and complimentary as well. Tebow’s pre-season appearances were very average or below and as such wasn’t going to unseat anyone or take up a valued roster spot.
            New England did more than kick the tires by any account I have read or heard out of Boston. They ignored the “noise as they usually do and simply didn’t see the “fit” or the value of T/T as a QB. That’s not to say they won’t re-visit the matter internally is my guess. T/T is determined to join the N.F.L. as QB plain and simple. He rejects any suggested notion of an alternate playing position and as such sits on the outside looking in at the N.F.L as an analyst. No rallying cries about Christian persecution
            or wearing the scriptures on his sleeve are going to change that much either. The N.F.L is a performance based multi-Billion dollar valued business with ditches literally full of highly awarded “can’t miss” players. It simply then shouldn’t be too much of a reach to see T/T joining their ranks no matter how much his “fan-base” screams otherwise. Sitting there wondering How and Why this is at all possible is then not a currency prepared to be spent by a vast majority.

            Why would the SEC stalwarts give a rat’s backside about Mr. Winston?

          • Patrick O’Malley

            and he should go back and play in the SEC, because no one thinks he can play in the NFL

      TIM IS A CLOSETED WHORE-MONGER!!!

      in the off-season, he’d rent out the BUNNY RANCH in las vegas!!! FOR A MONTH!!!!

      he’d pick the prettiest whore and have a ‘pretend marriage’ for the month!!

    Tim Tebow is a loser had a chance to play where he grew up Jacksonvile Fl could have been a Jaguar and played in his home city but refused being shelfish his own words not mine he said i want to go to the jets i have a better chance of winning. Witch made me think of Payton wanting to go to the colts a losing team he turned them into winners he took the hard road and won. Tim took the easy road and lost he had the chance to try out for another position but refused to play tightend or full back witch shows his lack of drive he should have stayed at Ny and done anything they ask even cover punts just to prove he wanted to be in the nfl and the whole time he could have been staying in football shape and working on his throwing motion but his ego stoped him for Tim it was the most important position QB or nothing. Then luck comes Tims way again with the Patriots but once again it was QB or nothing did he think he could take Tom Bradys job? this guy should have covered kicks punts tried to be a tightend or fullback maybe even a DE if Tim Tebow had really wanted to play football he would have done anything to stay on a team. Doug Willams when he was at tampa was the lowest paid QB in the NFL because he was the only black QB at that time he was paid 120,000 thousand a year thats it!!! Then went to the USFL before making a NFL comeback and winning a superbowl with the Redskins and set superbowl records and was MVP he overcome race issus and sterotypes about black QB and become a Hall of fame QB. Whats Tim tebows excuse for quiting? Kordell Stewart was drafted a QB told he was not good enough played wide receiver before making it back to being a QB after that he played his whole career as a QB he fought for respect and the posistion he was drafted at whats Tebow excuse? Tim Tebow is a quiter a loser a Shelfish person that wanted the most important position in sports and had a epic fail in trying to do so. Tim Tebow sucks.

    • UltraEnlightened

      Hate much? Tim not sign an autograph for you?

      • 1968_Camaro

        I watched Tebow quarterback for the Broncos, and OMG I could have done a better job of quarterbacking, and I am a 47 year old woman. I also feel that his crazy “values” of bigotry and abusing his religion to spread hatred against the LGBT community are not appropriate in professional sports, let alone polite society.

    • MattieNumNums

      He got traded dork. He had no say in it.

    • johnnypj

      Where did Tebow go where he did not do as they wanted – even punt protector and receiver. It was almost as if it was a revenge thing with the Jets. The year before he took the Broncos from two scores behind to beat the Dolphins in the last 5 minutes and then he took the Broncos from a score behind and 95 yards away in the last 5 minutes and beat the Jets and took them out of contention. Now, here we are the next season and lo and behold, we have both coaches Tebow led victories over coaching on the same team. What are the odds against that? I can imagine that both coaches felt that victory was in hand in those games, before ‘Tebow Time’, that is. I can also imagine how livid they were when he took victory out of their grasps in the last minute. No matter what anyone may say, like you ‘altec lansing’, who are a dime a dozen, and have probably never played a serious game of football in his life, if you look at the cold hard statistics, Tebow has a better record as a pro quarterback than many playing in the NFL today. No, he is not the typical quarterback and I am sure it was painful for some to watch him play but most of the time he pulled out a win. Ask Pittsburgh about it when he put more passing yards on them in the playoff game (316) than ANY team had all season. It is too bad that of all the teams in the NFL who really could use a quarterback none chose to take a chance with Tebow. It really was pro football’s loss.

    • WIZARD100

      Your spelling is as bad as your opinion of Tebow.

    • joe f.

      altec lansing,
      Wow so many words and so little to say. Tim Tebow is so far from being selfish, And there is nothing wrong with not wanting to play in Jacksonville. Tim is a better Q.B. then quit a few Q.B.’s playing now. He will get another chance to play in the NFL. and when he doe’s you will change your mind. Tom Brady is one of the best in the game and even he thinks Tim can make it in the NFL. for Tim right now it’s just a matter of being in the right place at the right time. He is a lot better then you think.So instead of listening to the media why don’t you sit down and watch some film on him. He did take the Broncos to the playoffs. You do know that don’t you? And he is even better now. He has improved a lot now.He is a good leader and gets a lot of respect from other players.I guess only time will tell.One more thing just by reading your comments tells me you no NOTHING about Tim Tebow…

      • 1968_Camaro

        He IS selfish. He is hateful toward the LGBT community. Those folks did not ask to be born that way, and he’s abusing his “religion” to promote hatred against them. He is also a show off, showing off his “religion” instead of living by example. His “faith” is bogus

    • unclealfie

      LOL! Tebow’s a loser? What do you do for living wash floors? Clean carpets? Flip burgers?
      Maybe you should return to school to finish 7th grade and learn to spell the English before you go criticizing others, you knucklehead moron

    • Tony S.

      Loser? Last time I checked, Tebow built a hospital for the poor. What have you done?

    Well, there’s a novel concept — total class when talking about another player. Love it.

  • I bleed orange and blue

    Tebow could def teach Brady and Head Quack Belicheat a few things about ethics and morals, assuming Brady can stick his thumb in his gaping whiny mouth long enough to listen! Tebow is a natural inspirational leader on and off the field. Tebow will continue to accomplish magnificent feats in his lifetime.

  • Jeff Nesseth

    The winningest QB in the NFL(166-51 only QB over 70% today) said “Tebow is a great player, and a great person”. When comparing Tebow to Elway and Manning, Tebow is the only one to have a playoff victory(Over Steelers no less) in his first two seasons. And doing this with less playing time then Elway or P Manning. Tebow 19 TD and ONLY 9 INTERCEPTIONS. Can’t throw? Please. Facts speak for themselves.

    • Joe Schmo

      All you have proved is how cherry picking stats can write a narrative that doesn’t reflect reality whatsoever. Let’s not compare Tebow to Elway or Manning.

      • Jeff Nesseth

        Only comparing first two years of course. Elway always found the opponents open more than his teammates in those first two years. Just awful and ugly. No cherry picking whatsoever. Look it up yourself if you have the courage to do so.

        • Mike

          You are correct. The fact is these QBs were given 3 years of solid time to come off as pass or fail.
          Tebow was cut because he was a Christian and Manning joined the team. PERIOD.
          He was never given the chance.

          • William

            THIS. Tebow is hated because he’s a Christian, it’s like saying Muhammad Ali was a bad boxer because he was Muslim. But no one won’t do it. They only single out Christians, I’ve had it happen to me before, even a professor at college told me he experienced it. Some modern world we live in

  • joe f.

    I would love to see Tim Tebow get another chance in the NFL. if the media would have laid off him a little he probable would still be playing.

    • Joe Schmo

      If not for the media circus he brings, he would be a backup QB at best.

    • Tony S.

      Agreed. The media doomed him. As well as his rabid fan-base.

      I do enjoy watching Tebow play… not the whole game maybe… the 4th quarter in particular.lol

  • unclealfie

    It went on for decades with Doug Flutie, who couldn’t throw a pass beyond 30 yards as a pro.

  • joe f.

    Kevin,
    This site is for anyone to voice there opinion and there are people out here that think differently then you , If they want to talk about Tim Tebow coming back they have that right. So if you don’t like it no one is forcing you to use it. This is a free world that allows people to say what they want. Just deal with it. I’m sure others read things they don’t like but they don’t whine about it.
    P.S. GOOD LUCK TIM TEBOW I HOPE YOUR DREAM OF PLAYING COMES TRUE.

    • Kevin

      Kindly spare me the “free speech” petulance. I didn’t infringe on anyone’s rights, nor did I insist other people didn’t have the right to express their opinions. I asked (with appropriate amounts of impoliteness) that people STOP arguing that Tebow should be “given another chance” despite his demonstrated inability to perform on the field… simply because there’s something else about him unrelated to football ability that they really like (his looks, his demeanor, his religious fervor etc. etc.).

      This is a free world, and I said what I wanted to, just like you did. So you can make another post whining about me whining about you whining about me whining about other peoples’ whining… or YOU can learn to deal with it, same as I did.
      P.S. Good luck, Tim Tebow, I think you’re very well suited as an SEC analyst. You get to share your knowledge and be around football, and we get to stop hearing your name mentioned 100 times more than any other Heisman curse victims by fans who don’t know when to let go.

    • Apparently, most of the owners and coaches in the NFL think that Tim Tebow isn’t or never will be an NFL quarterback, and I happen to agree. My question is; Why don’t they make him into a tight end. I think he has the potential to great at that position.

      • hjs3

        For starters he has publically stated that he doesn’t want to play anything other than QB in the NFL….

  • 1968_Camaro

    Yes Tebow is a sub par QB. I mean, sheesh, I watched him play a game, and could not believe just how BAD he was–he was so BAD to the point that I was thinking to myself that I could do a better job, and I am old enough to be his mom!

  • Leg Bong

    Tebow is the best qb not in the league. He also has more playoff wins than Romo.

  • thib

    kevin you couldnt have said it better well done to you sir

  • bobwhite1935

    What’s your opinion on a lot of these mostly Hispanic baseball players that make the sign of the cross before coming to bat. I bet you think that is A-OK.

    • Kevin

      To be honest, Bob, I find it hilarious when people pray for success in a sporting event or point up and thank God for getting a hit. Thanks for giving me that double, God, definitely more worthy of your attention than the 15 children who died a miserable, painful death in the time it took to finish the inning. But finding something ridiculous doesn’t mean I have a problem with it in a communal social setting.

      Much as I felt Tebow put on “Christian Theater” on the sidelines with the kneeling and the scripture numbers under the eyes… I don’t have a problem with him or what he does outside the lines, and that wasn’t the focus of my post. My problem was with the silly glorification of him by fans, which led to irrational football judgments based on that irrational glorification.

      The day a baseball player gets voted into the All Star game with a .214 average, 10 HR and mediocre fielding ability, simply because they cross themselves 100 times in the on-deck circle instead of taking practice swings… I’ll say the same thing to those fans that I said here.

  • ArgleBjargle

    “I enjoy being around him very much, especially when he’s on his knees.”

  • captaindandan

    Practice squad? That’s how Kurt Warner started out with the Rams. Doug Flutie? When he got in the huddle the O. Line KNEW they were going to score. Christian Taliban is an Oxymoron. Folks who post with misspelled words are joking with you or don’t know how to use spell check.

    He should should become a tight end goodness knows he is strong enough!

    kevin u are a dick just because u don’t like tebow dosn’t mean sh!t u don’t know how to evalueuate talent.

  • blue21614

    to all u haters out there tim teboe is a winner so deal with it u losers

  • SteelCity1981

    there is not a bad thing to say about tebow on a personal level, hell I bet every nfl owner would love to have a guy with his type of personality on their team and no one ever argued that about tebow, but that’s where it ends. people have argue over rather or not he is a worthy nfl qb and that argument will remain until he gets another shot again to see if he is any better of a qb then when he last played as a qb in the nfl. tebow could get a job in the nfl right now and prob be first string as a tight end on a team, but he doesn’t want to change postions and he is sticking to his guns on wanting to continue to be an qb, and I like that, because it shows that regardless of what people say about his qb skills in the nfl he is still determined to be play as a qb in the nfl.

  • willets2006

    People like you it what makes teams pass on great players and sign players you never hear about later.

  • WVF

    I’m not an avid fan of Tom Brady, but I like what he had to say about Tim Tebow. Any team would be smart to have Tebow either at the helm or on the sideline as a back up.

  • Blu Martini

    He is black balled via Goodell..church Vs. state

  • Richard Kimble

    There are a lot of critics of Tebow’s ability to play in the NFL. After the worst performance of any starting QB in recent history, one has to wonder where the critics of Johnny Football are? If Manziel had Tebow’s work ethic as well as character, he would have been more successful than the disaster last Sunday.

  • Please bring him back He can do dual duty qb and preacher..

  • blue crane

    Tom Brady is a class act. It’s so hip to dislike Tim Tebow. That someone of Mr. Brady’s stature ignores the hipness is impressive. All I know is that Tim Tebow made college football exciting the four years he was playing.

  • NEMike2

    Tebow sucks.

  • Mike

    Tim Tebow was NEVER given the chance to get better. Kyle Boller was given YEARS on the Ravens and there is no doubt about it Tim Tebow being mentioned in the same breath as Boller as far as talent goes would be a sin.

    Why is no one giving this man a break?

  • Mike

    Christians didn’t elevate him!!! The MEDIA Elevated him BECAUSE he was a Christian!!

    Christians just spoke him up ABOUT HIS FAITH and in passing also mentioned that he was pretty good at football too.

    Stop twisting things up. There is nothing realistic about your accusation that Christians hyped him up.

    • Kevin

      Selective memory is a terrible thing. We’ll just assume that’s the case, because it’s not as bad as dishonesty.

  • Mike

    Tebow became the Florida Gators’ starting quarterback during the 2007 season when he became the first college sophomore to win the Heisman Trophy.[1] In 2008, Tebow led Florida to a 13–1 record and its second national championship in three years, and was named the offensive MVP of the national championship game. The Gators again went 13–1 in 2009, his senior year. At the conclusion of his college career, he held the Southeastern Conference’s all-time records in both career passing efficiency and total rushing touchdowns, appearing second and tenth (respectively) in the NCAA record book in these categories.[2]

    As a member of the Denver Broncos, he started the last three games of his rookie season and became the team’s full-time starting quarterback beginning in the sixth game of 2011. The Broncos were 1–4 before he became the starter, but began winning with him on the field, often coming from behind late in the fourth quarter, until they won their first AFC West title and first playoff game since 2005, defeating the Pittsburgh Steelers in overtime.[3] Tebow was traded to the New York Jets during the offseason after the Broncos acquired free agent quarterback Peyton Manning.[4] Tebow received little playing time for the Jets and on April 29, 2013, the Jets released Tebow after drafting quarterback Geno Smith.[5] He signed a two-year, non-guaranteed contract with the New England Patriots on June 11, 2013, before being cut from the team on August 31, 2013.[6]

    Bla bla bla bla bla. What a whiny little bitch! Sheeez!

  • GovSlacker

    Is everyone crazy? Tebow will make a comback when the league allows the bounce pass. He should have let Belechick turn to him into a tight end. Tight end yes. QB no.

  • Bubba Sport

    As a huge Bronco Fan Born and raised in Colorado, I have slowly gained more and more respect for Tom Terrific for both his play on the field and his character off the field, despite being on the receiving end of several of his spankings. I think its great for him to publicly recognize a genuinely good character guy like Tebow and not give into the usual media line that because he is a Follower of Jesus he is damaged goods. It used to be organizations sought out such people of character. But say one politically incorrect thing in the media and your blacklisted for life….. I would love to see Tim end up in New England. more power to him and a first rate organization.

  • oneblast

    This is not a rhetorical question, I’m curious if perhaps someone has an answer. Has any other NFL quarterback ever won a playoff game, and in the subsequent season not started* a single game? I know some may have been injured or retired, but Tebow was healthy.

    I say bring him in as a hybrid player, perhaps even in the backfield in some capacity. Honestly some teams would probably be better off if he was their starting quarterback these days. For example, if I was the coach of the Redskins, I’d feel better with Tebow than I would RGIII at this point. Yes he has accuracy and mechanical issues, but he is a leader and a winner, and he can make plays on the ground without being as susceptible to injury because of his size.

    99% of the time, when a player is a good leader and has unique skills, but lacks mechanics or accuracy, he gets the underdog treatment; people say “oh wow he could really be something if his mechanics get better.” or “this guy really gives it his all.” or “I don’t know how he does it but he keeps getting his team wins his own way.” But for some reason, Tebow’s mechanical problems make him persona non grata. We run Tebow out of town on a rail, but give other players with atypical skill-sets the underdog label- why?… its almost as if some people just have something against the guy.

  • jmjoker

    if i was an nfl team with no QB and on the verge of being eliminated from playoff contention midway through the season, id pick up Tebow and see what he can do-
    I believe in miracles and he did it once, why can’t he do it again?

  • Redeemed

    Remind me again, what was Tebow’s record as a starting NFL QB??
