Tim Tebow may be a good footballer in college, but that does not mean he can automatically stay with the pros.

According to blog Panther Lair, there is little chance that Tebow can have an NFL comeback, and here are some reasons:

1)    His biggest hurdle in the sport is that he has terrible pass, completing only 173 of 361 passes. That’s only 47.9% completion.

2)    He could change position, like a tight end or running back, because he did manage 12 touchdowns during his time, but it’s actually difficult to switch positions in the NFL, so there is little chance that he can make it work.

3)    The media frenzy about his career also puts a lot of pressure on whichever team he’s on, so he has to play, but he rarely gives good results. Any team to get him may have a liability in their hands.

4)    He seems to flourish more outside of the NFL instead of in it. According to Inquistr, the quarterback has job offers all over the place – mostly for sportscaster positions. He was recently welcomed as sports anchor on 1010XL and is currently a college football analyst for the SEC Network. He is also a contributor on “Good Morning, America” for the “Motivate Me Monday” segment.

5)    Finally, his good games all seem to be flukes. Panther Lair said that every once in a while he could “pull a magical play out of his backside and win a game,” but for the NFL, flukes don’t work as well as having actual good players.

Inquisitr said that Tebow had good numbers in college, but did not translate as well while being in the NFL. However, he has been praised for his objective analysis of the SEC network, making him  more of an asset outside the field than inside, playing.

Tebow’s career in sports is far from over, but by the looks of it, he’d be better off taking other job offers than be a quarterback known to not be able to throw a good pass.

What do you think should be Tebow’s next move for his career?

    Articles like this are a joke and enrage me. Tim has never been given even a full season with any team to show what he can do. Bums like Gabbert and others get years. Plus, in the short time he had, he was good and would have gotten better and better.

    Wow! Even the “fluke” word. Though SI showed empirically it was no such thing. But let’s not let facts get in the way of a good witch burning.
