    If his prayers were to be a QB on the Jags… I’d say, no.

    I may not think much of him as a QB. But even I am surprised at the way this guy is being destroyed.

    It really isn’t his fault either. He was built up with a lot of hype surrounding him, which a lot of people resented. The dude does nothing wrong off the field. Works his @ss off. Never before have I seen such a media pile on. Even T.O didn’t get this kind of abuse when cut.

    It even made him less desirable on a team than T.O. was with all that knowledge of what T.O. does to a locker room. Even he got multiple shots on multiple teams. Even recently got another shot despite not seeing the field for a couple years.

    Can anyone name anyone who had been hammered more in sports?

      Thrawn Ihave never seen anyone else hammered and bashed like this in sports before! I cannot fathom the hate that is being spewed towards Tebow. Like you said even T.O. has gotten many shots, but not Tebow who has proven he can win in the NFL and is a leader on and off the field as well. It makes me so angry, that he will not get a chance to show the naysayers wrong. I keep holding out hope a team will come forward and sign Tim and believe in him. But he more the sports media and other media bashes Tim the bleaker it seems to get.

      Other quarterbacks including Geno Smith are not ready for the NFL and passer accuracy is not that great, but you keep hearing they need time to learn and grow, but not Tebow and he has proven he can win.

      I truly feel in my heart that those who keep bashing Tim are the ones who are scared deep down that if he does get another chance to start as a quarterback that he will prove them wrong once again! So what better way to make sure that never happens is to ruin any chances of Tim playing again.

        Yeah, fear of eating crow definitely plays a role, as does the desire to prematurely declare victory.

        • Thrawn says:

          That is probably part of it.

          That, and there is a train of thought that says they don’t want Tebow to be handed the job just because he’s a swell guy. There are a lot of people that say he sucks in practice and fails to impress the coaches to get a shot. Don’t know what happened with the Jets, but most players have to win their spot by being simply showing the coaches they are better than the other guys on the roster.

          Difficult to say if he failed to demonstrate that since the Jets operate like an organization in dire need of adult supervision.

          Others are tired of him and just want him to go away.

          So that is three reasons:

          1. Don’t wanna eat Crow.
          2. People want him to actually beat someone in camp.
          3. Tired of the pop culture phenominon. 15 minutes of fame are over.

          Anything else?

      Only lebron comes to mind when he left cleveland. That’s about the only person that comes to mind. Its part backlash from the coverage of him for some people I’m sure. Much like teams that get so much hype then fall flat. I don’t think other than lebron though did it was so long.

      I think some are scared he’ll make it but I think that goes on both sides because his diehard haters will credit everything but him if he does and his diehard fans won’t blame him if he gets another shot and completely fails.
      If the guy improves and performs consistently as a QB that’s great but if he doesn’t I see no reason for knocks on his ability. I think my issue is the people that personally knock him and put himm down and hate him. Its the same for me that I’m glad he’s a great person but its only a players ability that I like a player for. i’d like michael vick the player if he had been a good QB but do NOT like michael vick the person.
      I’d never watch a single movie if I had to like the person that the actor is, I just want the best quality and performance as can be.

    Tim Tebow is named Forbes’ most influential athlete of 2013
    May 6th, 2013 By Chuck Schilken

    May 6, 2013, 11:42 a.m.
    Tim Tebow may not have won the Super Bowl, or any other pro sports championship. He hasn’t won any Olympic medals either.
    Heck, he doesn’t even have a job.

    Yet, the recently released backup quarterback for the New York Jets topped Forbes magazine’s list of America’s most influential athletes of 2013, which utilized surveys of U.S. fans by Nielsen and E-Poll Market Research.

    The athletes he beat out included three 2012 Olympic gold-medal winners (No. 2 Michael Phelps, No. 3 Usain Bolt, No. 7 Gabby Douglas), three Super Bowl-winning quarterbacks (No. 5 Peyton Manning, No. 6 Drew Brees, No. 8 Aaron Rodgers) and three athletes who have won titles in other pro sports (No. 4 Derek Jeter, No. 9 LeBron James, No. 10 David Beckham).

    Of course, it should be pointed out that Tebow accomplished quite a bit — two national titles and a Heisman Trophy at Florida, a playoff win with the Denver Broncos — before spending the season mostly on the bench with the Jets last year.

    And it’s no secret that Tebow is a devout Christian — and an outspoken one at that. He has a huge following, many of whom could probably care less whether he ever plays in the NFL again.

    So, sorry Nos. 2-9 — so much for those 30 Olympic medals and 11 championships. Chances are, many of the people who said they were influenced by Tebow probably weren’t referring to athletic success at all.

    • Thrawn says:

      Yep. He’s infuential to a lot of people for reasons that go beyond football. He even has a lot of fans that don’t even care about the NFL at all. When you consider his fanbase OUTSIDE of football, his influence is astronomical.

      None of that is gonna get him a job as a QB though.

      • ck says:

        THAT’S WHAT YOU THINK…APPARENTLY, YOU ARE CLUELESS LIKE YOUR SPIDEY FRIEND!!! GO TEBOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        • Thrawn says:

          So that article will get him a job? Or his influence outside the NFL is NOT astronomical? Every one of his fans actually care about the NFL? hs influence doesn’t go beyond the football field?

          Geez, pay the guy a complement for being a great guy that a lot of people look up to, and I get the above.

          GO BRONCOS!!!

    The Main reason the mainstream media is out to destroy Tebow: because he is a “uppity” Christian and the mainstream boys cannot and will not tolerate it .

    • ck says:

      Andrea: If it wasn’t for christians, this country would not exist b/c it was founded on guess what?!…FREEDOM OF RELIGION AND NOT FREEDOM FROM IT!!! DON’T CARE HOW THEY TRY AND SPIN IT, THEY ARE THE ONES WHO ARE WRONG!!! GBPT2!!!
