Nine days after Tebow was released by the New York Jets, it has become increasingly clear that the ultra-popular quarterback who has hijacked many a news cycle has no viable landing spot. No NFL team seems to want him as a starter, backup, converted H-back or fake-punt decoy and it's not like he's fending off big-money offers from Canada, either. Now, here's the interesting part: Tebowmania is at least partly to blame.

Hate crime?? (never mind, he’s Christian)
Call me crazy but I have a feeling he’ll end up with the New England Patriots football club. Might even give Tom Brady a run for his money.
I’m blackballed for the very same reason. Can’t throw, can’t catch.
because he doesn’t have a great arm?
The NFL is only looking to recruit homosexuals these days. Homosexuals are very popular in this country right now.
Come to think of it, I notice nobody is offering the Pope an NFL contract either. I think I see a pattern here.
The NFL is far too mercenary to overlook anyone simply because of their religion. I empathize with your suspicions but I just think the teams are finding it difficult to design a position around him. The National Felon League is just not all that choosy concerning off the field stuff is a guy has the talent to fit one of their offensive schemes. You are giving them credit for having principles, even if they would be perverted principles.
Still, I don't understand his not landing in Canada. Anybody can be a football player in Canada!
Maybe he should change his name to "He Love Me".
God may have an alternate plan for Tim Tebow’s life that is far more interesting and influential than enduring the bigotry of the bloating corporate corpse that is today’s NFL. When the government begins making the rules regarding player safely, the days of the NFL are numbered.
This is enough to bring scorn and derision upon the NFL. It used to be that athletes were God-fearing men who prayed at mid-field and thanked God after the game. Now it’s all about how much money they bring home, how much they’ll be fined for swearing at a ref, and lucrative commercial endorsements.
Yahoo’s main thesis is that coaches “don’t want to deal with the circus”
Yet these same coaches accept murderers, drugs, baby mommas, drunk driving, etc... as just run-of-the-mill problems and part of the job when dealing with players.
Maybe if he held a news conference and said he was gay............or at least for gay marriage........or believed in globull warming.......
The NFL is sliding downhill fast........
Yeah thats a common trait with Heisman trophy winners.
There are still many players who thank God after the game, you just can’t understand them through their diamond-studded gold grills.
OK. I'm convinced now.
