Skip to comments.Tim Tebow breakup: All alone again after split with Camilla Belle
Posted on 12/20/2012 6:54:58 PM PST by MinorityRepublican
This has not been the best week for New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow.
First, on Wednesday, Jets Coach Rex Ryan says Greg McElroy will replace Mark Sanchez as the Jets' starter, leaving Tebow on the bench.
Then, on Thursday, US Weekly reports that Tebow has broken up with actress Camilla Belle after two months of dating.
Belle is famous for starring in "From Prada to Nada" and "Dirty Dancing 3." And when I say famous, I mean "been in movies no one has ever heard of or watched."
US Weekly says the breakup came because "the relationship just didn't work out."
Much like his relationship with the Jets.

I heard someone on radio this morning blaming Tebow for the Jets’ bad season, even as they refuse to play him. What the hell?
I never thought Tim and Camilla were a very good match.
Hey, why not? Obama still blames Bush and the sheeple believe it.
That poor guy. The media loves to be “snarky” with Tebow and he really seems relatively innocent.
Who'll be the first to be released, Ryan or Sanchez?
I hadn’t known about this, but it doesn’t sound like a good match to me, either.
Let’s hope that he finds some nice, decent girl and some nice decent football coach.
That's the world today it seems. No one is accountable for anything. Benghazi was a total flustercluck but it was nobody's fault. All failures are just random badness now.
I think she’s a real beauty! I heard she was devout Catholic?
Tebow is a good guy but I don’t think he’s straight. (Ducking now..)
Yeah. He needs to steer well clear of the actress/model type girls.
As for a coach, I'm not sure what will be best for him. The Jets weren't willing to redesign their offense around Tebow. I'm not so certain any others in the NFL will be willing to do so either. If your offense is designed around Tebow, you also have to have a backup QB with the same style in case the starter goes down. A Canadian team on the other hand might be happy to land Tebow.
” Who’ll be the first to be released, Ryan or Sanchez?”
Ryan. Skipping over Tebow is a thumb in the eye of ownership. You can get away with it if you perform. Ryan doesn’t.
She looks like she could benefit heavily from a sandwich or six.
My neighbor here in L.A. was on the set of PUSH’ in Hong Kong and Camilla Belle was the lead actress. Unlike Chris Evans, she was very friendly to the set people and down-to-earth.
Me neither. She's a hot, sexy woman and he's a repressed Puritan. Bad match.
Well, maybe I’m being unfair to her. But those don’t look like the greatest roles for a devout Catholic to be involved in. Still, I was just going by what I read in the article.
FReep of the day!
She's nothing like what he had back at UF>
The question of the day: Is Tim Tebow a Virgin?
I would definitely pick a regular gal over a Hollywood chick, anytime.
That is probably the problem. Baptist/Catholic Oil/Water
I’m getting my friend Jimmy Sexton on the phone ,and see if he will set up something between Tim and my beautiful 23yo graanddaughter!
Too much man, too much.
maybe he didn’t like her taking clothes off for the camera, did she do any scenes like that?
She can bring up the Titanic
Tebow’s not exactly the scraggly 4 eyed wimpy geek who can’t get a girlfriend. Dude’s a chick magnet—lets just hope he magnetizes the right one for him.
You mean like this one?
Ia she dressed to do a “Green Giant” commercial?
I have a bridge in Brooklyn for sale to people who believe he is.
I think that the reasoning behind that is that for what they're paying Tim they could get two above average offensive linemen, who would be of more value than Tim on the bench.
What was that Bible verse about not being unequally yoked with unbelievers?
Disclosure: I know nothing about this actress; she may be a believer, maybe even a Born-Again one. But given the nature of that industry, it is unlikely.
Not only is the girlfriend from UF not guilty, she could raise taxes and no one would mind.
No, it even weirder than that. Tebow brings bad mojo for the starting QB of whatever team he’s on. It’s really insane. Why can’t one perennial basement dwelling team just give him a shot?
Bad mojo as in exposing the current starters as piss poor leaders next to him? Yeah, I can see that.
Based on interviews I've read of his former UF teammates who now play in the NFL, they've said they believe he should be a starting QB in the NFL.
If I remember correctly, Denver's OL last year allowed Tebow to be sacked something like 3 times per game. Tebow also never could get run consistency last year. Yes, sometimes he popped a 20 yarder but so many more times he was lucky to get a yard... on 3rd down when they needed 2. Then there was the relatively high number of dropped passes by Denver receivers.
Tebow's pass completion percentage could have been better at Denver but it wasn't alarming. It's not as if he was throwing wildly resulting in a high pick percentage. He seemed to be intentionally throwing too far ahead of receivers in order to avoid being picked off. That wasn't a bad thing in that over another season or two he could steadily bring the balls in closer to his receivers as he gained confidence.
This year, in the first five games of regular season, the same Denver OL allowed Peyton Manning to be sacked 3 times per game and the result was a 2-3 record with fans beginning to murmur about the wisdom of bringing in Manning.
Since Denver's 2-3 start this season, some adjustment was made with the Broncos' OL whereby Manning has been given much better protection (I think they subsequently had a 5 game win streak with only 1 sack total)and Manning has been able to play like the Manning of the Colts.
I don't know what has been going on in Jets practices but from the few games I've seen in which Tebow took snaps this season, there has never been much in the way of rushing opportunity for him. As at Denver, he has receivers with hard hands but the total number of pass attempts has been too low to measure any QB's performance.
My inclination is to agree with you. See my post #37 in this thread.
He runs like a fullback, blocks like a fullback, and throws like a fullback. Line him up at fullback.
I think he’s a good quarterback. Leadership and inspiration is certainly a big part of being a good quarterback, and he has them in spades. He’s also a “double-threat” (pass-run) which is helpful not only when it’s planned but also when it’s not. From what I’ve seen, he doesn’t have that Elway type of arm, where he can toss it 30 and 40 yards down the field with a perfect spiral and pinpoint accuracy, but neither do a lot of other QB’s who are starting in the NFL. Give him a freakin’ chance!
In his case, he's always one hit away from being a fullback. However, because he doesn't look like a Manning, or Brady when passing isn't reason to give up on him at QB.
Vinny Testaverde was an interception machine yet spent 21 years in the NFL. Unlike Testaverde who usually threw more picks than TDs, Tebow's 12 TD to 6 INT ratio at Denver last season is good and suggests that his pass completion percentages can be improved.
Great points. The one thing about Tebow I don’t see enough people talking about is that he is a natural leader and teammates want to follow him. THAT alone is enough for him to be named a starter on an NFL team.
Do you happen to recall his completion percentage or his QB rating?
Rex Ryan should be benched.
Thanks to picking up Tebow and the contract extension they gave Sanchez they’ve got 30 million dollars of a hard cap tied up in 2 bad QBs. And his presence rattled Sanchez’s already weak confidence, and their attempts to work Tebow in regular shatter his rhythm (look at Monday, Sanchez gets back to back completions for the first time all game, they put in Tebow for a play, which fails but does get an offsides, Sanchez goes back in: incomplete, incomplete, sack).
Don’t want to blame Tebow in a mean way, it’s not like he’s Chad Henne or something, but the fact is they were a better team without than with him, and the whole push to get him was a big mistake.
I think it’s self-evident that it was a mistake, given their record, but to me, the mistake was getting him without the intention of really using him. If he could lead the Broncos from a disaster season to the playoffs, there has to be at least one team in the league that would be willing to give him a legitimate shot, from training camp on.
His rating last season at Denver was about 73 percent. His completion rate was 46 percent. Here are Tebow's stats:
I agree with you that his completion percentage last season at Denver was not good. Someof the blame is his but there were a remarkable number of dropped passes and so many of the drops seemed to be on the receivers numbers 20-30 yards downfield that could have been real momentum boosters. Then there were the high number of QB hurries and sacks allowed by the Broncos' OL. Not only were the hurries and sacks high, they also happened quickly, often in 2 seconds, or less.
This season in Denver, Manning was also hurried in preseason and through the first 5 regular season games.
Sacked on average 3 times per first 5 regular season games, the Manning led Broncos went 2-3. With substantially all else being equal, the Manning led Broncos performed worse than the Tebow led Broncos of the previous season. Not until adjustments were made to the offensive line and possibly other offensive positions did the Broncos begin winning this season.
Going back to Tebow as a Bronco in 2011, as I pointed out in one of my posts, it wasn't as if Tebow was throwing wildly. When he missed (ignoring drops), it was usually because he was leading too far ahead of his receivers, or throwing at their feet which to me indicated that as he gained experience, he could bring the balls in closer to the receivers.
A lot of that success in Denver was the defense shaving 15 points off their average allowed. He’s really not a good QB. His throwing motion is slow, his throws are inaccurate, he can’t read defenses. He runs well and he’s a hard gamer, should be an RB with the occasional gadget play. Somebody might still give him a shot, there’s plenty of teams with even worse QBs, but don’t expect much.
So its Tebow’s fault Sanchez didn’t have the stones to man up and prove his worth? Please. Tebow did everything he was asked to do, including gain 15 lbs. This is all on Ryan and the Jets FO. They were a train wreck long before Tebow got there.
That’s not what I said. Go back and actually READ it.
