I am sure Tim will survive.
Dude needs to change his title to “tight end” of “flanker-back”
I’ve been watching football for all of my 43 years. I am well aware of the saying “there is no one in town more popular than the backup QB” but this is ridiculous. Tebow is a great kid but he’s a terrible QB. The idea that he should get any coverage at all is more personality-based than it is football-skills based.
Also - Sanchez had plenty of crappy games between week 1 and now that featured even less involvement from Tebow. Sanchez’s problems don’t come from Tebow taking PT away. They come from him being awful too (and a bad O-Line...bad receivers etc...)
Just another hyped-up personality in our media driven culture bites the dust. Not surprised...
People are slippin'.
I remember when Elway started for Broncos. Had a terrible time, threw too many interceptions, everyone complaining. So, they bring in special coaches to help him, and work with him, and it did indeed help him. He developed, well, you know. However Tebow, is not given that option, he is supposed to be at pro NFL level QB from day one.
Stats from 1st 7 games; Elway vs Tebow

Passing Yards: Elway 757 Tebow 1,177
TD/INT: Elway 1-9 Tebow 10-4
QB Rating: Elway 37.2 Tebow 78.7
For a Christian, Tebow decided to go into the crotch of the Obamanation and see how it works out.
Great college QB's don't always translate to the pros (Andre Ware, Joey Harrington), and some of the "athletic" QB's take a long time to make it. Randall Cunningham, Rich Gannon, Steve Young, and John Elway had their best seasons well into their 30's.
He collects his salary and doesn’t risk injuries. Win Win
LOL - after last week’s disaster the Jets were chomping at the bit to get the “Tim’s Terrible” meme going. I see it only took 3 plays this time. Kill the strawman!
I believe God will promote Tebow in good season.
The Jets success or lack thereof has nothing to do with Tebow, much to the chagrin of some in the media. The season is the result of a poor-to-mediocre team, not a backup quarterback who doesn’t see much playing time.
Kansas City can use Tebow next year if they fail to draft first and get a QB in the draft.
The Jets sucked prior to Tebow and they still suck now. Their problems run far deeper than the QB position.
OK, we'll talk after the Jets play the Patriots three days from now.
