Tim Tebow Celebrates Easter by Chopping Lumber with Jase from 'Duck Dynasty'

Sunday is a day of rest, remembrance and furious bicep sculpting for Tim Tebow.

Judging by a recent tweet from Duck Dynasty star Jase Robertson, the former NFL quarterback headed out to the woodpile this Easter to put in some work.View image on Twitter

Indeed, #OperationBiceps seemed to be well underway for Robertson, who sat by watching Tebow work with the ax. 

You may be wondering what a bearded beanpole like Robertson is doing hanging out with an ex-NFL Adonis like Tebow. As it turns out, the two are men of faith with a shared interest in spreading the Good Word.

Devout Christians, Tebow and Robertson were first seen together on a 2013 speaking circuit in which they shared their personal testimonies and faith with several high school football teams.View image on Twitter

Consider this wood-chopping workout a warm up for the Tebow and Robertson reunion tour. 

The two men will hit the speaking circuit again this July, stopping by the University of South Florida for the 2014 Wildfire “Men’s Impact Weekend” conference. 

Tebow might not be working out with NFL teams, but he’s lopping lumber for the Lord. Someone has to honor the carpenter, right?

OPELOUSAS — Our Savior’s Church celebrated Easter and four years of service by bringing in former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow for a little inspiration.

Tebow, or “Tibeaux,” as he was called on a projector screen, spoke in a question-and-answer format with the Rev. Eugene Reiszner twice Sunday morning. Tebow reflected on his childhood, his journey through the NCAA and NFL, and his new job as a college football analyst for ESPN.

All of it boiled down to his fierce competitiveness, Tebow said.

“It started when I was in my mom’s womb,” he explained to the audience. “I had to fight for my life in there.”

Tebow’s mother fell ill with a strain of dysentery in the Philippines, where she and her husband had relocated to build a Baptist mission. Without knowing she was pregnant with Tebow, she accepted a series of medications. When she learned she was pregnant, she also learned that medication caused a placental abruption.

Doctors expected Tebow to be stillborn and recommended his mother have an abortion to prevent further complications. She instead chose to carry to full term and Tebow was born — severely malnourished, but alive.

“You could say I started competing at a real early age,” Tebow reflected. “That’s all I knew how to do at that age.”

That competition followed Tebow all the way from recreational youth ball to the 2009 BCS National Championship as quarterback of the University of Florida Gators. The Denver Broncos made him the 25th player taken overall in the 2010 NFL draft.

Later came an AFC championship, a trade to the New York Jets and a training camp stint with the New England Patriots later.

“Every single day is a new learning opportunity,” he said. “God never puts too much on your plate that you can’t handle. If God is for you, who can be against you?”

Tebow said he falls back on a piece of his father’s advice, taught through a viewing of the movie “Braveheart,” when he ponders on his career and opportunities.

“He asked, ‘Do you love what you’re doing? If you do, are you passionate about it and are you sacrificing anything for it?’” he said

Tim Tebow’s charity hospital in Davao seen to open in 7 months

 DAVAO CITY, Philippines — A state-of-the-art $3.5-million charity hospital for physically disabled children, which is being funded in part by Philippine-born American football superstar Tim Tebow, is now near completion and is expected to operate before the year ends.

 The 17-bed capacity Tebow Cure Hospital in Barangay (village) Lanang here is now 97 percent complete, according to Leron Lehman, the hospital’s executive director.

Lehman said workers have been rushing to put finishing touches on the facility such as the installation of tiles and pipes, even as hospital officials have been completing the requirements for final licensing from the Department of Health (DoH).

He told reporters here on Wednesday that the recruitment of about 45 to 50 staff, including expatriates that would handle surgical jobs, has been ongoing.

The hospital was designed to have a 30-bed capacity but initially, only 17 beds would be commissioned.

Lehman said the facility would accept children with such conditions as clubfoot, bowed legs, cleft lip/palate, untreated burns, or hydrocephalus and other physical birth defects.

“We are six or seven months away to the opening,” he said.

The project, which features a six-story building, started in June 2012 and is 70 percent funded by Tebow’s foundation.

The former New York Jets quarterback, who also occasionally plays for the Greater Boston-based New England Patriots, has decided to build the hospital here, in partnership with the Pennsylvania-based Cure International.

“There are a lot of disabled children here in Mindanao and there are a bunch of reasons why their families do not seek medical help…they are poor and cannot afford surgery or transportation. But, you know healing changes everything,” he said.

Tebow is the son of an American missionary-couple, which spent years in the Philippines to spread the Gospel. He was in fact born in Makati.

The hospital, Cure’s first in Southeast Asia, will have an operating suite and sterilization facilities; private clinics and outpatient area including laboratory, radiology and physical therapy, charity beds and private or semi-private rooms, Timmy’s playroom, charity clinic, Spiritual ministry and training activities, according to Lehman.

While the hospital would be 100 percent charity, Lehman said the hospital would provide good opportunities for private practice later.

“But we do not intend for low cost private practice provider. Private practice should not overshadow our charity work,” he said, noting that one of the 24 orthopedic surgeons in Davao City with a 30-year practice has already offered ‘charity time’ in the hospital.

Lehman said Tim Tebow and Cure International have chosen Davao as location for this hospital because needed drugs and other supplies could be easily secured; the city has trained staff; and they could fulfill their mission here despite some challenges.

Lehman also highlighted the commitment of Mayor Rodrigo Duterte in terms of facilitating the needs of the project.

The hospital’s annual budget could reach to half million dollars, said Lehman

 

NFL quarterback: Debate on playing ability versus Christian belief hype swirls around Tebow(this is old but says a lot)

    The popular narrative concerning Tim Tebow is that he is a distraction for any NFL team that deigns to sign him.

    He is the most recognizable and influential athlete in American sports although many believe his football skills do not warrant the hype that he brings with him.

    One of the reasons Tebow is so popular, and yet polarizing, is because of his willingness to regularly speak out about his Christian beliefs.

    While many thought his career was done because of the sideshow he creates, and have suggested he would be a better fit as a preacher than a quarterback, his faith may have just landed Tebow his new job with the New England Patriots.

    Team owner Robert Kraft said Wednesday that Tebow’s spirituality was a factor in inking him to a contract as an understudy to superstar Tom Brady.

    Speaking to ESPN, Kraft noted that “you never know what happens” when a player like Tebow is signed.

    “But for me personally,” he said, “having Tim Tebow on this team, he’s someone who believes in spirituality, he’s very competitive and works hard, and has a great attitude, and he’s a winner.

    “So having him as part of our franchise is great, but he has to compete just like anyone else. We’re blessed to have a lot of people like that, but the fact that spirituality is very important to him is very appealing to me.”

    Kraft told USA Today, “You can’t get enough people like him. Life is about collecting good people around you. You can’t have enough good people.”

    This is not the first time Kraft, who is Jewish, has commented favorably on Tebow’s faith, according to the Washington Post.

    Before a 2011 matchup between his team and the Denver Broncos, a team Tebow led to the playoffs that year, Kraft said,”He’s great for the NFL. The kind of young man he is and the values he represents, I think it’s terrific. We just want to bring him down to earth this weekend.

    “We had a date with him last year here when he came (before the draft). He’s a real, fine young man and I sort of like it that he’s about spirituality and the country is thinking about spirituality.”

    In a time when expressions of faith in the workplace, whether positive or negative, draw scrutiny, it was not surprising that Post reporter Elizabeth Tenety delved into the legality of the hiring of Tebow on the basis of his beliefs.

    “The majority of employers are barred from discriminating against a potential employee based on their religion,” wrote Tenety.

    “The U.S. Equal Opportunity Commission’s website notes that: “Religious discrimination involves treating a person (an applicant or employee) unfavorably because of his or her religious beliefs. But what about favorably? ”

    Tenety quoted Charles C. Haynes of the First Amendment Center, who told her that Kraft’s comments on the role Tebow’s Charles C. Haynes of the First Amendment Center says that he thinks that Kraft’s comments on the role Tebow’s faith played in his hiring are perfectly legal.

    Haynes writes:

    “There is a difference between hiring or retaining someone on the basis of religious affiliation, which could run afoul of civil rights laws prohibiting discrimination on the basis of religion, and hiring or retaining someone because, among other things, he or she is spiritually-minded or has good values.

    “I see nothing problematic for an employer to express admiration for employees who have faith commitments or good character etc. absent evidence that religious employees are treated more favorably than non-religious employees. This is an instance, I think, of a employer generally admiring the character of an employee, including the employee’s spiritual commitments.”

    Blogger Sean Tomlinson of the Score sports website suggested Tebow’s future with the Patriots, at least as a quarterback, is dim.

    “Since there’s no guaranteed money in his contract, the Patriots’ minicamp and training camp function as a long tryout, he wrote. “Tebow’s useless as a quarterback behind Tom Brady and Ryan Mallett, so if he can’t be at least sort of OK as a tight end or running back, he’ll be cut at no cost.”

     

Report: 49ers halt negotiations with Kaepernick amid police investigation

FOX Sports

APR 17, 2014 9:03p ET

+Geoff Burke / USA TODAY Sports

The 49ers and Colin Kaepernick were reportedly not close on finalizing a contract extension when talks were put on hold.

  
 The 49ers have put contract talks with quarterback Colin Kaepernick on hold amid a police investigation into an incident involving a woman at a Miami hotel earlier this month, NFL.com reports.

The 49ers and Kaepernick were not close on finalizing a deal that is expected to exceed $18 million per year when negotiations were put on hold, according to the report.

In addition to Kaepernick, the police report on the incident also names 49ers wide receiver Quinton Patton and Seahawks wide receiver Ricardo Lockette as possible suspects. 

FOX Sports’ Kevin Vaughan and Mike Garafolo previously reported that the woman who filed the report on April 4 told Miami police that the players encouraged her to smoke marijuana and that after she was undressed by Kaepernick and ended up in a hospital with no memory of what happened or how she got there, according to a copy of the incident report. She also told police she had a prior sexual relationship with Kaepernick.

Initial media reports suggested that a sexual assault had occurred, but there is nothing in the report that clarifies exactly what happened. The report itself has “police information” listed in the area where a specific crime would normally be included.

In a series of tweets sent out last Friday, Kaepernick defended his reputation, saying he was dealing with “someone who makes things up.” 

“I take great pride in who I am and what I do, but I guess sometimes you have to deal with someone who makes things up,” one of them read.

“I want to thank all of the people who have shared their encouraging sentiments. I assure you that your faith is not misplaced,” he wrote in the other.

Tebow in blue and orange at SEC Network photo shoot

Brant Parsons | Brant’s Blog Orlando Sentinel3:36 p.m. EDT, April 17, 2014

 When you’re Tim Tebow, even a simple thing like a photo shoot is news.

The SEC Network analyst participated in a photo shoot for the soon to be live network and was shown in a blue suit with some orange highlights.

Of course he was.

The former University of Florida quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner is one of the stars of the network, which will begin airing this fall when football season picks up.


Pictures: UCF Knights spring football game


Tebow will serve as a studio analyst on the pregame show called SEC Nation and will feature in various other SEC and ESPN produced spots.

SEC Nation will be a traveling pregame show and broadcast from SEC campuses each week. It will begin on the first weekend of the season in August.

Tebow’s first action with the ESPN/SEC partnership came at the BCS title game, won by Florida’s rival, Florida State.

You can trust to see more of Tebow in the upcoming months as the promotion for the SEC Network ramps up – and apparently, he’ll be in blue and orange for some of it.View image on Twitter

Predictions for Tim Tebow’s 2014 NFL Offseason

By , Featured Columnist
  • Predictions for Tim Tebow's 2014 NFL Offseason
 
Jeff Gross/Getty Images
The NFL calendar has been flipped to the dawn of a new year, and that leaves many players (free agents) without jobs—temporarily—and opens the door for rookies to realize their NFL dreams. But there is one free agent who is still looking to achieve his goals: Tim Tebow.

The most polarizing name in the sports journalism business.

 

Does Tim Tebow deserve a chance as an NFL QB?

  • Yes

    93.6%
     
  • No

    6.4%
     

 

What is in store for Tebow before the 2014 NFL season starts up? There’s one thing we know for sure: We’ll be seeing plenty of him on television.

Tebow joined ESPN as an analyst for the SEC Network, with his main responsibilities being SEC Nation—a traveling pregame show that will debut in Columbia, S.C. on Aug. 28 before Texas A&M takes on South Carolina.

Here is his ESPN debut in the pregame coverage of the last BCS National Championship Game—something he knows a little bit about:

 

 

This new job might bring joy to Tebow haters and despair to Tebow lovers, as it should signal the end of the Florida product’s NFL career. But not so fast. Tebow was very clear that he still wants to pursue his professional dreams, according to a statement he released through ESPN:

I am so excited that ESPN has given me this incredible opportunity. When I was 6 years old, I fell in love with the game of football, and while I continue to pursue my dream of playing quarterback in the NFL, this is an amazing opportunity to be part of the unparalleled passion of college football and the SEC.

Tebow still wants to play football in addition to covering it—the gridiron equivalent of having your cake and shoveling it down your gullet too.

But how realistic are those aspirations?

 

 

Eric Allen is a man who has experienced both sides of that particular coin—though not at the same time—and he doesn’t think it’s realistic for Tebow to truly be prepared for an NFL team while gallivanting across the nation and participating in ESPN-sponsored tailgating events.

Nevertheless, Tebow has never been one to do things conventionally, and he is very serious about getting another shot in the NFL.

According to the Associated Press (h/t ESPN), Tebow declared that he still trains five days a week, working on the craft of being a professional gunslinger.

I feel like I’m the best that I’ve ever been as a quarterback right now. I hope I get the opportunity to show that.

I’m not sure what’s ahead of me. I’m very excited to have this opportunity at ESPN, but who knows what the next few months will hold?

ESPN gave us an inside look at that training regimen, and it looks impressive, to say the least:

 

 

Whatever your feelings are on Tebow as an NFL prospect, you can’t help but marvel at his work ethic and drive, as he refuses to let go of his dream.

Unfortunately, all his hard work will be for naught.

The former Heisman winner will be 27 years old by the time the 2014 NFL season kicks off, so he’ll need to demonstrate serious progression in his mechanics and accuracy to pique the interest of an organization. Furthermore, QB-needy teams will have the chance to look to the draft to address their hole at the position. On the other hand, the 2014 quarterback class isn’t very deep, with only a few players who could start from day one:

 

2014 QB-Needy Teams and Prospects
Team Player
Houston Texans Teddy Bridgewater
Cleveland Browns Blake Bortles
Jacksonville Jaguars Johnny Manziel
Oakland Raiders Derek Carr
Minnesota Vikings Jimmy Garoppolo
Tennessee Titans Zach Mettenberger
New York Jets A.J. McCarron

CBSSports.com

 

With as many as seven NFL teams definitely looking for a new quarterback (to provide competition, at the very least), there will be a market for NFL-caliber passers.

 

 

Whether Tebow’s hard work has elevated him into that category remains to be seen, however.

That brings us to door No. 3 for Tebow’s professional pursuits: What about acting? Based on his Super Bowl commercial, we may have to prepare ourselves to watch Tebow on the big screen.

Tebow’s future is so up in the air that the possibilities are endless.

We can say two things for sure about Tebow’s upcoming offseason. First, he is not going to quit on his NFL dream—not yet anyway. Secondly, we’re going to be seeing a lot of Tebow’s face on our TVs

FOX Sports 1 NFL Insider Mike Garafolo reported Wednesday morning that the QB and the Giants had agreed to a deal.

Freeman split time last season with the Buccaneers and the Vikings. He was cut by the Bucs following Week 7 and later joined the Vikings, only to play one game with Minnesota.

He’ll join the third team of his career as Eli Manning’s backup.

Tebow is finished as an NFL quarterback

George Diaz | Orlando Sentinel Sports Columnist11:02 a.m. EST, January 11, 2013

 The team’s new general manager says he does not see a scenario in which the Jaguars add Tim Tebow to the roster.

Tim Tebow is done as an NFL quarterback.

Toast. Nice and crispy.

How many NFL coaches and general managers and NFL teams have to say the same thing before his devoted disciples get it? First the Denver Broncos, then the New York Jets, and now his hometown team in Jacksonville.

Sports writers debate whether the NY Jets should trade or play Tim Tebow.

“I can’t imagine a scenario in which he’ll be a Jacksonville Jaguar — even if he’s released [by the Jets],” new Jags general manager David Caldwell said Thursday.


Greater football minds than me have figured it out: Tebow’s elongated throwing motion, his happy feet and other flawed mechanics don’t fit the requirements for a starting QB in the NFL.

His great run with the Broncos last season was an aberration: The team scaled down their offense to accommodate Tebow’s liabilities, and let their defense and kicker Matt Prater do most of the heavy lifting.

But Tebow is not a long-term solution.

His only shot would be to come in as a wildcat option, and even that seems to be a possibility that’s not on the table any more.

Tebow’s strength is his ability to improvise, but scrambling out of the pocket and making something dynamic happen isn’t something you can script in an NFL playbook. His ability to extend plays will make him exciting to watch and will energize an NFL offense, but you can’t run an offense on the fly.

“It was either really, really bad or really, really good,” NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock said of Tebow last season. “ And I think that’s what you’re gonna get. If you want the dynamism, if you want the leadership, if you want the kid, you’re gonna have to put up with some things that are sometimes ugly.”

It is clear that no one wants to put up with his inconsistencies.

Tebow still has a great deal to offer an NFL team.

But it won’t be throwing the football.
