A little over a year after he arrived in New York to great fanfare, the New York Jets have released Tim Tebow.

The New York Post’s Brian Costello reported the news, which came on the day players, including starter Mark Sanchez, were expected to arrive in Florham Park, N.J., for workouts. Although Sanchez struggled last season, Tebow, the often-polarizing quarterback, could never get onto the field with the Jets, even though he led the 2011 Denver Broncos to a playoff victory at the height of Tebowmania. The Tebow era ends with him participating in only 72 offensive snaps with the Jets.

It was just a publicity stunt when they signed him, I don't think they ever considered really using him. Sanchez sucks..... He's horrible!!

Looks like Sanchez will be cut as well. If I were Sanchez and the Jets had released me before Tebow, I might've slit my wrists. Talk about the ultimate insult.

Interesting that no one would trade for him, though. If the Jaguars don't pick him up, I'm not sure if he'll get a QB job. I mean, he's good enough to be a backup somewhere, but I'm not sure anyone will shell out the $ for him.

He's one heck of an athlete as others mentioned above and capable of many other positions however, who knows, he may be finding out that there are more important things he's supposed to do, beyond Pro Football....

I dont know how well of a blocker he would be against a 6'7 defense end coming at him but we all know he can run. I like his morals and hopes he makes it but would have to be the perfect fit.

It's sad that the sports analysts for the most part never wanted him to succeed! Yet an NBA player comes out and says he's queer and they act like he's a hero...what is the world coming too??!!! Best of luck to Tebow!

Tebo has a few football choices, swallow his pride and play a different position, take a pay cut and hold a clip board and be a back up, or go to Canada and play QB. The guy was a GREAT college QB. He never had the skill set to make it in the NFL. He can't make the throws you have to make in the NFL. Great guy but just not an NFL QB.

Yep, IMO Tebow could do well in the pros given half a chance. I don't think a lack of talent, and grit is the real issue. But, I believe that his profession of faith, and prayer in public has turned most of the media, and sportscasters against him. It's ok to be gay, and flaunt it. But, for God's sake we can't have a conservative, religious freak, praying during a game.

so, hold on.... You mean to tell me that the opinions of the media has limited Tebow's opportunity on the field? Also, what more "chance" does he deserve? He was given the starting position of a team on a playoff run. That's hardly "half a chance." That is a chance and every team out there saw him play.

Seriously?
Tebow beat the Steelers, and took Denver to the playoffs his first year. NY never gave him half a chance. And, If you think librals, and the media don't have any power, look who is still in the white house.

So, you are saying that NY didn't give Tebow a chance because some folks in the media picked on him? Why on earth would they pick him up in the first place?

I don't know why NY didn't play him. Why would they pick him up If they were never going to play him? Maybe for the publicity, and to sell more tickets. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, mine is that most of the media, who are liberal don't like like him because of his faith. They have managed to destroy some pretty good conservative pres. candidates. I'm not too naive to think they would have any problem doing it to a ball player.

Right on the $!! As we all know, not ONLY ability but a combination of it and Popularity get the gold crown this day and time.. Tebow is going against the grain of the new America which will only get him ahead with a few of us here in this life and likely only Tebow himself in his next life. Great athlete, fine Christian example - not a Popular choice in today's American majority of baby-killers, homosexuals and non-Christian anti-Christ types

The problem with your argument is that there are many players who publicly demonstrate their faith. Most, if not all teams, hold prayer circles before and after games where several to many players participate. Regardless, there are many people who dislike Tebow, either personally or because they think the he lacks the skill set to be a NFL QB. There are some people who just flat out want to see him fail and likewise there are some who just want to see him succeed for the same reasons. Regardless, I hardly think that any media opinion on the matter has anything to do with Tebow's play time, or lack thereof. Coaches are under the gun to produce wins and they go with the combination of players who give them the best chance at doing so. There were thousands of NYJ fans screaming to put Tebow in over Sanchez. Obviously, the coaching staff disagreed when they put in McElroy.

Your analogy to the presidency hardly works. While you can certainly make the case that a propaganda campaign by the media sways the voting public opinion, football team decisions are not made by votes, the public nor fans, for that matter. The Jets envisioned Tebow as a "wild card" player who would do all sorts of plays from various positions including tailback, which, for some reason, did not pan out. Could it be that he failed to perform in that role as expected? I don't know, but I have a hard time believing that it has anything to do with the media opinion on Tebow's faith.

J-ville, who probably needs Tebow the most, has said they have no interest in him. Maybe they don't wish to build their program around his particular skill set. No doubt Tebow has skills, but are they the right skills for a contemporary NFL QB at this moment in time? That remains to be seen. Regardless, Tebow's expression of faith has little, if anything to do with his lack of success in the NFL.

He's not an NFL quarterback. If he'd change positions he'd probably make it. Its for the best for him though. I don't like him, but I do like what he stands for. So doesn't really matter to me. Someone will pick him up.

" Regardless, Tebow's expression of faith has little, if anything to do with his lack of success in the NFL."

Difference is, I haven't seen any player express their faith as openly as Tebow, or get as much attention for it. He has done more for Christianity lately than any other pro. It's not just the MSM that is against Christianity, but liberals, and the current admin. in general. If Tebow professed to being gay, or loyal to Islam, he would be playing if it took an executive order. Politicians, Team owners, coaches, and media can be bought. Anyone that doesn't adhere to liberalism, and political correctness is not tolerated well. Just my theory.

Difference is, I haven't seen any player express their faith as openly as Tebow, or get as much attention for it. He has done more for Christianity lately than any other pro. It's not just the MSM that is against Christianity, but liberals, and the current admin. in general. If Tebow professed to being gay, or loyal to Islam, he would be playing if it took an executive order. Politicians, Team owners, coaches, and media can be bought. Anyone that doesn't adhere to liberalism, and political correctness is not tolerated well. Just my theory.


"Get as much attention for it" may be a fair statement. On that, we can agree.
Still, in the highly competitive, cutthroat world of front-office football, I find it difficult to believe that anyone with tangible influence is intentionally or unintentionally preventing Tebow from succeeding because he gets attention for his faith.

Also, for the record, it is reported that Elway asked Tebow if he preferred ending up in New York or Jacksonville and Tebow preferred NY. Now, if this is true, Tebow asked for the major market, big money team that makes cutthroat decisions and has a notorious reputation for disregarding ineffective players.

One more thing: How come the media hasn't prevented the success of Duck Dynasty ?

I know a lot of folks think Tebow is a bust at Qback but I gotta tell ya, I seen a lot of pro QB's that haven't made it to the playoffs, weak conference or not, and none of them, or very very few, ever took as much cr@p from the media as Tebow has.

He took a losing Denver team to the 2nd round of playoffs in essentially his rookie year. I cannot for the life of me understand why people want to run him down as incompetent. Not many QB's come in and do much better their rookie year.

I agree with stik, I think he would do very well at the TE position,not the best ever,but he might surprise alot of people. I never thought he would do very well at the QB position and have always said he would be better off at another position,he definitely has the talent and drive to play ball and I think some team will pick him up,if he is willing to try another position. This is only my opinion though,who knows what the future may hold for him.

I will say this: I may make light of his playing abilities (or inabilities) at the QB position, BUT I am a Tebow fan, and he is the kind of guy I hope my daughters marry. Well, all except for that part where he was crying like a baby on the sidelines in his last game with the Gators. Geez...he needs to learn how to turn that part off.

Now Bucky, why were you surprised that he was drafted as an NFL QB?
I despise the Gators - truly - but thoroughly enjoyed watching that young man plow thru and pass his way to where he got before I ever even knew much about his faith etc.. I was convinced early that he'd go Pro provided he didn't get his neck broken in college plowing down the field so often.
Was it his unique technique as a college QB that made so many think he'd never make it?

I wasn't surprised that he was drafted, but I still believe Charlie Ward (FSU QB and Heisman winner) was a better NFL prospect than Tebow, and he went undrafted.

i dont think ward was much of a prospect either. no arm strength, but he did make a pretty fair point guard

Agreed. I just believe Ward was a better pro football prospect than Tebow. Of course that isn't really saying a lot.

I think if he had the ability to be a successful NFL Quarterback, his religious views would be irrelevant. If a person could win a Superbowl for a team it wouldn't matter if they were Christan, gay, Black, white, a rapist, a right wing extremist, Muslim, or anything else. Anyone, no matter what their beliefs, with that level of talent would be on the field period.

Great guy natural leader with a bright future. He will be very successful at something, just not...as a NFL QB.

Running QBs have a very short career in the NFL. Yes some have lasted more than others but you have to sometime learn to throw the ball.

He is a good athelete, I will agree, Like Someone said in an earlier post I think he would make a good Tightend for someone!

Whether Tebow has the tools to be a pro football quarterback is a subjective topic. What can't be argued are facts from the 2011 season (the only chance he was given to display his skills) and his college football career.

Tebow took over for a 1-4 team in a tailspin in 2011. He led them to a division title, a playoff victory over the defending Super Bowl champs, and into the second round of the playoffs. His critics will argue that the defense and the run game carried the team and they won in spite of Tebow. However, this same defense and running game carried the team to the 1-4 record.

Statistically, in his first year as a starter his stats (yes, even passing numbers) were far better than John Elway's and many of his vocal media critics especially Boomer Esiason. To not be given an opportunity last year in New York under the mediocre Sanchez was disgraceful.

He was a great college q back. I thought his technique as a college player would not fit or (work) in the NFL. I believe also being left handed hurt him (JMO)He was a heck of a college player though. As far as his faith, i admire the kid.

I think a lot of folks felt the same way too - you're right, his QB technique was unusual but man was it college level effective. I still wish he'd have had more opportunity to prove himself as an NFL QB.. I think his unique qualities would have paid off had he kept his head attached \:\) in the process.

Good post.
If Tebow came had initially came out as gay, or muslim, I'd bet that the same people that want him to fail now would do everything possible to see that he got to play. And, the washed up NBA player that came out will get a new contract, or millions in endorsements.

Tim reminds me of an ex-Steeler QB, Kordell Stewart. Good kid, great athlete that started out playing receiver and gadget man, but insisted on playing QB because that was what he played in college. The Steelers let him play QB and they won nothing with him at that position. They eventually cut him because he sucked as a passer. He could play football and imo would have made probowls and maybe the HOF as a football player, but never as a QB.

Tim Tebow has been spoiled his entire life. yes, he worked hard to get to where he is now, but his path was much easier than most.

Tim was home schooled. In accordance with Florida state laws, he got to play for any team in the state that he wanted, if he and his mother would live in the county during the school year, so they did. He refused to play for the county he was actually borned in lived in because the coach didn't want him to play QB, but instead TE or another position. So, as you can see, Tim got his way from the start. Not only did he not have to actually attend the high school that he played for, but he got to pick the school that he wanted to play for.....You can see where this is going, right?

Sure, we all know what he did at Florida and that's all fine and good, but as football fans know, that does not always transfer well in to the pro style of offense.

Tim was drafted by the Broncos and from day one he became a media darling. He inspired a decent team to play well and with a bit of fortunate breaks along the way, they made the playoffs and beat my Steelers in Denver. A game that no one saw coming, especially me...lol. What people forget is all the breaks that Denver got along the way to even make the playoffs. So much so that some of the media was calling it "divine intervention"...lol. Many of the games that Denver won during that run were simply fortunate wins, in every way.

As far as the media scrutiny that Tim gets and why, well, here's my theory.

First off, Tim worked hard but he also had a mostly easy path to get to where he is today. Sheltered life, great parents and the ability to pick and choose his path. He never had to fight through the inner city school systems and work to get out of poverty and make it on his own. He was home schooled, so he never had to worry about the normal high school pressures and distractions that normal kids face.

The media didn't attack Tim for his faith, but more for the way ESPN and others put him up on a pedestal from day one. Every day from the day he was drafted, ESPN ran stories on him...every single day. When he was a senior in high school, ESPN did an hour long special on him, following his entire senior year....really??? Have any other high school players received that much attention????? NO!

He had not achieved one single thing in the NFL and his face was on the cover of every magazine and he was a part of every single news cast every day. Not Tim's fault, but then again , Tim took advantage of every thing the media gave him and never once refused to do an ad or an interview because he realized that he had not achieved anything yet, in the NFL.

THAT is why many people wanted the silver spooned golden boy to fail, not because of religion. But, religious people took the fact that he was a Christian and made it all about that, as they always do.

When Denver cut Tebow and he CHOSE to go to New York, the media center of the world, he had a LIVE news conference when he arrived there.....really? He was a backup QB for the Jets and was officially the first backup QB to ever have a LIVE news conference when he changed teams......in the history of the NFL, he was the first.....lol. Again, THAT is why other players and some in the media want him to fail, not because of his religion.

I wish I had a dime for every time an athlete said this when interviewed..." First of all, I want to thank my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ"....not just NFL players but ALL ATHLETES!! Next time that you watch a pro football game, count how many times, after a big play, the athlete points to the heavens.....it would be much easier to count how many times they don't, I assure you.

Many people are not serious sports fans and so they only really know what the media tells them. To you I'd like to say that Tim Tebow is NOT the only Christian player that has ever lived and Tim is not the only GOOD GUY that ever played professional sports. All of the professional leagues are full of good guys and some that are very religious as well. The thing is that in many cases, the media only reports what they deem as NEWS and what they think will sell papers.

Tim is a media darling.....since he was cut, ESPN and every single news media has been all over the story. Again, he was a backup that got traded and a backup that played on 7% of the jets plays last season . How many backups or maybe even third string players would get that much attention if not for being TIM TEBOW, media darling. NONE.....and THAT is why many people want him to fail. NOT because he's a Christian athlete.

I like to call Tim the NFL's version of "THE KARDASHIANS".....you either love him or you hate him, but the simple fact is that no one knows what he did to get so much attention....

AS for me, I like Tim as a person and think that one day he will do something truly NEWS WORTHY, like save a kid from a burning building or whatever, but for now, he needs to be a football player and not a spoiled little brat that wants to play QB or he'll take his football and go home..!

This is probably the dumbest post I've ever read on Tndeer. (other than most of mine) You obvioulsy know very little about Tebow. So, if Tim was a black, poor inner city kid that didn't get all the breaks and get to pick and choose what school he played for, then you would think he had earned his stripes?

LOL. People like you are the reason NBA queers are "hero's".

Tim reminds me of an ex-Steeler QB, Kordell Stewart. Good kid, great athlete that started out playing receiver and gadget man, but insisted on playing QB because that was what he played in college. The Steelers let him play QB and they won nothing with him at that position. They eventually cut him because he sucked as a passer. He could play football and imo would have made probowls and maybe the HOF as a football player, but never as a QB.

Tim Tebow has been spoiled his entire life. yes, he worked hard to get to where he is now, but his path was much easier than most.

Tim was home schooled. In accordance with Florida state laws, he got to play for any team in the state that he wanted, if he and his mother would live in the county during the school year, so they did. He refused to play for the county he was actually borned in lived in because the coach didn't want him to play QB, but instead TE or another position. So, as you can see, Tim got his way from the start. Not only did he not have to actually attend the high school that he played for, but he got to pick the school that he wanted to play for.....You can see where this is going, right?

Sure, we all know what he did at Florida and that's all fine and good, but as football fans know, that does not always transfer well in to the pro style of offense.

Tim was drafted by the Broncos and from day one he became a media darling. He inspired a decent team to play well and with a bit of fortunate breaks along the way, they made the playoffs and beat my Steelers in Denver. A game that no one saw coming, especially me...lol. What people forget is all the breaks that Denver got along the way to even make the playoffs. So much so that some of the media was calling it "divine intervention"...lol. Many of the games that Denver won during that run were simply fortunate wins, in every way.

As far as the media scrutiny that Tim gets and why, well, here's my theory.

First off, Tim worked hard but he also had a mostly easy path to get to where he is today. Sheltered life, great parents and the ability to pick and choose his path. He never had to fight through the inner city school systems and work to get out of poverty and make it on his own. He was home schooled, so he never had to worry about the normal high school pressures and distractions that normal kids face.

The media didn't attack Tim for his faith, but more for the way ESPN and others put him up on a pedestal from day one. Every day from the day he was drafted, ESPN ran stories on him...every single day. When he was a senior in high school, ESPN did an hour long special on him, following his entire senior year....really??? Have any other high school players received that much attention????? NO!

He had not achieved one single thing in the NFL and his face was on the cover of every magazine and he was a part of every single news cast every day. Not Tim's fault, but then again , Tim took advantage of every thing the media gave him and never once refused to do an ad or an interview because he realized that he had not achieved anything yet, in the NFL.

THAT is why many people wanted the silver spooned golden boy to fail, not because of religion. But, religious people took the fact that he was a Christian and made it all about that, as they always do.

When Denver cut Tebow and he CHOSE to go to New York, the media center of the world, he had a LIVE news conference when he arrived there.....really? He was a backup QB for the Jets and was officially the first backup QB to ever have a LIVE news conference when he changed teams......in the history of the NFL, he was the first.....lol. Again, THAT is why other players and some in the media want him to fail, not because of his religion.

I wish I had a dime for every time an athlete said this when interviewed..." First of all, I want to thank my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ"....not just NFL players but ALL ATHLETES!! Next time that you watch a pro football game, count how many times, after a big play, the athlete points to the heavens.....it would be much easier to count how many times they don't, I assure you.

Many people are not serious sports fans and so they only really know what the media tells them. To you I'd like to say that Tim Tebow is NOT the only Christian player that has ever lived and Tim is not the only GOOD GUY that ever played professional sports. All of the professional leagues are full of good guys and some that are very religious as well. The thing is that in many cases, the media only reports what they deem as NEWS and what they think will sell papers.

Tim is a media darling.....since he was cut, ESPN and every single news media has been all over the story. Again, he was a backup that got traded and a backup that played on 7% of the jets plays last season . How many backups or maybe even third string players would get that much attention if not for being TIM TEBOW, media darling. NONE.....and THAT is why many people want him to fail. NOT because he's a Christian athlete.

I like to call Tim the NFL's version of "THE KARDASHIANS".....you either love him or you hate him, but the simple fact is that no one knows what he did to get so much attention....

AS for me, I like Tim as a person and think that one day he will do something truly NEWS WORTHY, like save a kid from a burning building or whatever, but for now, he needs to be a football player and not a spoiled little brat that wants to play QB or he'll take his football and go home..!


This is probably the dumbest post I've ever read on Tndeer. (other than most of mine) You obvioulsy know very little about Tebow. So, if Tim was a black, poor inner city kid that didn't get all the breaks and get to pick and choose what school he played for, then you would think he had earned his stripes?

LOL. People like you are the reason NBA queers are "hero's".


LOL oh and, X2

Tebow was a force to be reckoned with in college days, you knew he was going to run the ball, but could never stop him.
I also believe that he would be better served to play a different position in the NFL.
I agree with BH on the Cordell Stewart part, but I disagree on the other BS.
I wish him the best of luck.

Tebow is not an NFL calibur QB. The little run he had was mainly from a decent defense. Once they played a balanced team, he looked like crap. That being said, Tebow is one heck of a person. I hope God puts him in a better situation. I honestly think the Jets just went after the name to get the attendance up.
