Tim Tebow is training like a madman for another NFL shot

If you thought the news that Tim Tebow took a job as an analyst with the SEC Network meant that he had given up on being a quarterback, think again. In a report by Fox’s Phoenix affiliate (say that five times quickly), Tebow talks about how he has been working out at a Scottsdale gym known to be favored by NFL players looking to ramp up their training.

The station caught up with Tebow at Performance Enhancing Professionals (yes, that’s really its name), where the ex-Bronco/Jet/Patriot told it, “I go back and forth, here to L.A., doing a lot of quarterback work there … and come here to get all the therapy, and to get my conditioning in, and I’ve loved it. You know, I feel great. I feel the strongest, healthiest, throwing the best that I ever have, so I’m just really excited about the improvement.”

Tebow’s quarterbacking skills may leave something to be desired (thus far), but it’s hard to knock the effort he seems to be putting into a comeback of sorts. He’s shown doing all sorts of not-fun exercises, including playing a version of beach volleyball that substitutes a medicine ball. That looks brutal.

Asked about that particular workout, Tebow said, “I think one of the greatest things it teaches is just to keep fighting. Maybe when your chips are down, or you’re exhausted, or you feel like you can’t keep going, you know, it just teaches you to continue to keep fighting, and that’s so great for sports.”

Spoken like someone determined to keep fighting to get back into the NFL. Now if only someone could convince the rocked-up Tebow to start taking some tight-end lessons, he might make it

    Tim is trying to be so quiet and good to please the nfl masters, but they seem perfectly content that way.

    I’d love to know what, if anything, Josh McDaniels said to Tim after cutting him last summer. Is he a supporter? Or just a BB suckup?

    Can’t fault Tebow as he is doing everything and I mean everything RIGHT! Know God is going to reward him even if others are too blind to do so and ego impaired!!!

    The whole McDaniels/Patriots, training with House thing is puzzling to me. I really thought the Patriots had invested the time in training camp and liked what they saw. It appeared to me Bellichik was gearing up for the future with a modern running QB and sent Tim off to refine his mechanics. Not that Tom Brady is ready to be replaced but in a few years Tim could step in. In the meantime he could be used in special packages. Anyway, I can’t believe Tebow is not on an NFL team. Something is seriously not right about that.
