  • Tim Tebow goes back to the basics with his mechanics

    [...] Early reports on Tebow out of the Eagles' OTAs have been overwhelmingly positive. Tebow is throwing the ball better than expected, and he attributes his improvement to his offseason work with House. Tebow said the pair worked “from the ground up,” focusing on “balance, posture, sequencing, timing," per John Gonzalez of CSN Philly. [...] Reporters at practice are not the only ones who have noticed the improvements that Tebow has made throwing the football. Kelly is excited with what he has seen so far. “Watch him throw,” Kelly said, per CSN Philly. “I think he’s improved. He spent a...

He is having more good plays than bad plays out here. He is doing a very good job."

"He is working hard out here just like everyone out. He has some good throws, some throws he wants to get back," Day said....
  • New Extra Point Rule Puts Philadelphia Eagles and Tim Tebow Ahead of the Curve

    RantSports ^ | May 21, 2015 | Mike Gibson
    In less than two months, Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly might have gone from dunce to genius for signing Tim Tebow. The quarterback nobody wanted the last two years could be the very specialist the Eagles need to beat the NFL’s new extra-point rule. For the grand Kelly scheme to work, though, Tebow would have to be activated on game day not as the third quarterback—who can only be used if one of the first two go down—but as a special teams performer. Given Tebow’s size and reputation as a football player over a quarterback, that seems reasonable enough....

Except that Kelly, who worked Tebow out last month, sees the skills and the physical presence and he can't help himself. It's not just about ego. There's a challenge in finding ways to utilize a player's talents, and Kelly enjoys that challenge.

    Now that the Philadelphia Eagles have signed a 4th quarterback -- Tim Tebow -- and talk is being bandied about re: Tebow's potential "role player" status...perhaps a review is in order to ponder a potential paradigm shift that the NFL is perhaps beyond the need to acknowledge. And for that, we need a quick review of another professional sport: Major League Baseball...and specifically the history of pitching: 1901-1968: For the first 68 years of the 20th century, Major League Baseball didn't even track "saves" by relief pitchers. Yankees pitcher Waite Hoyt was retroactively credited with "eight" saves in 1928. But...

    He’s baaaaaaaaaack. At least, for some offseason workouts, and — who knows? — possibly much more. Tim Tebow, the decorated Florida quarterback whose first stint in the NFL was as brief as it was closely scrutinized, has reached an agreement to join the Eagles, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Philadelphia Coach Chip Kelly has spoken highly of Tebow in the past, and apparently he saw enough of the quarterback during a March workout to add him to a depth chart that currently includes Sam Bradford, Mark Sanchez, Matt Barkley and G.J. Kinne. The Eagles had reportedly been trying to trade...

    The roster move the Eagles are expected to make Monday shot straight to the top of the publicity charts. A lot of people might have been Tebowing that it was not true, but it is. The Eagles are adding a Heisman Trophy winner to their crowded quarterback depth chart. Oregon's Marcus Mariota remains a long shot to be in Eagles green after the NFL draft. Tim Tebow, on the other hand, will be on the practice fields at the NovaCare Complex after he signs a one-year deal with the team Monday. He'll be one of five quarterbacks on the roster,...

    The Philadelphia Eagles have signed Tim Tebow to a one-year deal. The 27-year-old quarterback joins three other signal callers, Sam Bradford, Matt Barkley, and Mark Sanchez, likely competing for three roster spots. The line behind center in Philadelphia may be long. But it’s not terribly accomplished, allowing Tebow a solid chance to make the team and, unlike his try in New England, to enjoy an opportunity on the field should injuries or ineptitude result from Bradford or Sanchez starting. Bradford, the top man on the depth chart, endured injuries and struggled to live up to his potential in St. Louis...

    Forget for one minute all the recent questions about DeSean Jackson's life off the field, the most scandalous of which have yet to be substantiated. Let's also not spend much time debating the arrogance that led Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly to believe his offense didn't need its best wide receiver anymore. The most interesting aspect of Jackson's new three-year deal with the Washington Redskins has little to do with those things. Instead, it has everything to do with a franchise that has been largely dysfunctional ever since Daniel Snyder purchased it in 1999. Anybody who thinks Jackson's arrival...

    Eagles quarterback Michael Vick is having a phenomenal season, of course, but he’s still a divisive figure. Some credit him for making the most of another chance following his prison sentence, while others still can’t bring themselves to forgive Vick for the suffering he inflicted on innocent dogs. But according to information reported last night by Peter King of Sports Illustrated, Vick has at least one supporter in high places: President Barack Obama. Obama, it seems, is squarely in the “credit Vick for making good on another chance” camp. King said last night that Obama called Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie...

    Since former Philadelphia Eagles safety Andre Waters killed himself in November, an explanation for his suicide has remained a mystery. But after examining portions of Waters' brain, a neuropathologist is claiming that Waters sustained brain damage from playing football that, he says, led to Waters' depression and ultimate death. The neuropathologist, Dr. Bennet Omalu of the University of Pittsburgh and a leading expert in forensic pathology, determined that Waters' brain tissue had degenerated into that of an 85-year-old man with similar characteristics as those of early-stage Alzheimer's victims. Omalu said he believed that the damage was either caused or drastically...

Roughly four days hence, what transpired over the past four weeks will be but a fleeting memory--the casually discarded satin prelude to an evening of intimate revelry. Ahem. Bottom line, the 2005 preseason was a good one. And that's all I have to say about that. When we last left the real Washington...

    BETHLEHEM, Pa. (AP) -- A day after they booted Terrell Owens out of training camp, the Philadelphia Eagles took an even harder stance on their star's contract dispute: T.O. can play for the Eagles or he won't play at all. Team president Joe Banner said Thursday that when the banished wide receiver returns to camp next week, it will be without the new contract he desperately wants and with an understanding that he can no longer become a disruption. ''Our hope, obviously, is that he comes back next week and is what he can be in every sense, whether that's...

    KAPOLEI, Hawaii (Feb. 9, 2005) -- Donovan McNabb has no apologies for his Super Bowl performance. He won't allow his teammates to make excuses, either. . . . The Eagles' offensive struggles were caused only by the Patriots and the tension of a Super Bowl, not a phantom sickness.

    OK it's time to come clean: I'm having a midlife crisis. No, I haven't bought a new sports car, started coloring my hair or taken my 50-ish libido out for some extra laps. It's worse, dear friends. I've become . . . well, an optimist. There, I've said it. Yes, at midlife, I've started to look on the bright side. I think things will work out and certainly aren't as bad as they seem. In fact, things are more often than not a lot better than they seem. Where's all this headed? I wonder. I fear I could really let...

    PHILADELPHIA (Dec. 20, 2004) -- Philadelphia Eagles star receiver Terrell Owens will miss the rest of the regular season and possibly the playoffs and Super Bowl with torn ligaments in his right ankle. Owens needs surgery and stands only an outside chance of being able to play in the Super Bowl on Feb. 6 if the Eagles make it that far, head trainer Rick Burkholder said. Owens was hurt on the second play of the third quarter of Philadelphia's win over Dallas on Dec. 19 when he was dragged down from behind by Roy Williams on a 20-yard reception. Owens...
