When Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler and Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo went down in Week 2, there could’ve been any number of normal or otherwise logical reactions. Assessing backups like the Bears’ Jimmy Clausen or the Cowboys’ Brandon Weeden would be wise, as would a healthy look at the rest of the roster to see how things might hold up without the player at the most important position.

Hey, even a casual look around the league at potential free agent or trade options could yield potential. You know, there’s never going to be a patchwork “solution” at quarterback, but crazier things have happened and there’s never any harm in looking.

Asking for ESPN analyst and supposed “NFL quarterback” Tim Tebow, though?

It’s insanity.

That’s exactly what happened.

The Chicago Sun-Times reported that Bears fans had taken to social media to call for Tebow.

Meanwhile, Texas Governor Greg Abbot had done the same for the Dallas Cowboys.

Some of the best football minds in the NFL have kicked the tires on Tebow and have found him wanting even for a roster spot, let alone a short-to-intermediate term starting gig. He had some punctuated success in the league, but has not progressed past that.

Some fans just can’t give up the dream.

    buzzy—-you hearing any scoop on any of this?????

    Buzzy Says : Nope

  2. David says:

    Tim Tebow scored 34 times in his first 15.5 games and 13 plays in the NFL. Do you know who scored 34 times in 2014?
    Tony Romo. They both went to the playoffs and won their first game.

  3. David says:

    It looks like Kelly might be getting ready to pull Bradford. Andrew Luck is having trouble against the Jets defense throwing 4-11 with a pick in the 1st quarter. Revis and Cromartie are both great defensive backs and will give Philly lots of trouble next week with the Eagles vs. Jets. 0-3

      Good comments today. Thanks.

      There is enough poor play from enough teams and their quarterbacks that I keep some hope for Tebow getting on the field.

      What will Fox say when Bears 0-4, Jimmy Clausen 1-20?

    • ck says:

      David: That Ryan Quigley is pretty good and especially enjoyed the “Whoopty doo” and “embarrassed” comments too…BRING ON THE TEBOW TIME!!
      Read where even the players are frustrated by the plays and have basically “given up”!!!

  4. Danny says:

    From Adam Schefter:

    Had Brandon Weeden gotten hurt Sunday, emergency QB would have been Joseph Randle or Darren McFadden. Cowboys working out QBs this week.

  5. brandi says:

    Cutler is supposed to be out two Games. Hard to see Bears looking at Tim unless they’re ready to take a serious look at finally doing something about Jay besides just keep giving him more money to frustrate everyone.

    Dallas is supposedly working out Christian Ponder, Josh Freeman and Matt Flynn. In other words, anyone not named Tim Tebow.

  6. brandi says:

    Got my Josh’s mixed up. It’s Josh Johnson. (As if that makes a difference.)

  7. David says:

    The Jets just shut down Andrew Luck for 3.5 quarters and held the Colts to 7 points. Luck had 1 TD 3 ints and lost a fumble.
    They play the Eagles next week and this may be the strongest defense that they have met.

  8. Danny says:

    From Chris Boden (Bears beat writer on Twitter from earlier today):

    Fox says they haven’t decided whether to bring in another QB this week.

  9. ck says:

    Bet they said that to Kurt’s fans too?! Glad he didn’t give up either or his fans…GO TEBOW!!!

  10. ck says:

    Going to get even more dicier for the Eagles and Mr. Chip…that was an easy prediction, lol!

    • brandi says:

      I like George. But Football’s not his schtick. In fact just about the only time he ever write about Football it’s a Tebow story and parroting what he’s heard from others.

      I’m going to throw my two Lincolns worth in here.

      I ticked alotta people off by saying Tebow fans should NOT Play the NFL’s or NFL Media’s games. Tim has more Fans than the NFL. Worldwide it’s alot more. But instead of using that force most of the time his fans have tried to bend over backwards to please the NFL. Obviously not only have they not appreciated that, all they’ve done is used it abused it and continued to mock his Fans.

      I cannot and will not speak for anyone else. But I’m done playing nice with these guys. PeaceOut!

    • ck says:

      Lex: Looks like he is the delusional one…TEBOW WILL NOT LET THIS STAND AND HE IS A COMPETITOR…JUST WHAT HE DOES IN SPITE OF NAYSAYERS!!!

  11. Danny says:

    Cowboys update:

    From Mike Fisher @fishsports vis Ian Rapoport:

    “VRanch QB workouts today: Matt Flynn, Josh Johnson, McLeod Bethel-Thompson & likely best of bunch, Christian Ponder.”

  12. lex says:

    Buzzy- Not for me, either!!

  13. Bigfan says:

    ZERO calls yet??

  14. Rickdove says:

    I’ll ive heard is that Dallas is trying out QB’s and none of them are named TEBOW. So either there is a silent QB tryout or there are ZERO calls.

  15. Bigfan says:

    ZERO…Timmy is BIGGER than America’s Team…Give it another week at this rate!!!

  16. David Oliver says:

    How powerful are those Puppeteers of the NFL TIM TEBOW QB BOYCOTT?
    Are NFL Teams allowed to Tempt, Lie to, Deceive, Play Games with phony try-outs, for Tim – WITH NOTHING BUT A DECEPTIVE JOKE IN MIND?

    They news just shared about NO REAL consideration for Tim continues to reinforce this TRUTH:

    Why is Tebow STILL “Black-Balled” by NFL?
    Because he is too “Polarizing” (Code Word of “New Speak” For “TOO – CHRISTIAN”!!

    YES I have heard of many OTHER players – who have confessed Christ, including Russell Wilson, previously and have rooted for them:
    However, I have NEVER seen anyone of them – who dared to CONFESS – and THANK, “MY SAVIOUR – THE LORD JESUS CHRIST – at the Beginning of any Post Game interview – So THEY KNEW IT WAS COMING – from him – and could NOT do anything about it – until they got rid of him!

    NOR have I seen the Rabid HATE Campaign against any player like TEBOW – To the Late Night Comedian, John Oliver, who said if he had one bullet – and had a choice between shooting Bin Liden or TIM TEBOW in the Head – HE WOULD SHOOT TIM TEBOW – yeah, this is all about his unorthodox throwing motion ? http://www.sportsgrid.com/nfl/daily-shows-john-oliver-hates-tim-tebow-like-he-hates-bin-laden-video/

    Anyhow that is the main reason – I have been OUT there for him – because he had crossed “THEIR THRESHOLD” and They Declared WAR to GET RID OF HIM!

    (THEY = $$ NFL and $$ NFL MEDIA and CONTROLLERS) and I believe THAT CAMPAIGN – is why HE HAS BEEN EFFECTIVELY – BANNED FROM THE NFL..
    TEBOW HAS CROSSED “THEIR” ($$ and CONTROL PEOPLE) LINE – and IS NOW AN EXAMPLE FOR OTHERS – WHO MIGHT HAVE DARED TO DO THE SAME!

    Basically – there is a “NOISE FLOOR” of FEAR – Such that Team owners, managers and coaches – are FEARFUL of the PERSONAL REPERCUSSION of ATTACKS on THEM – IF THEY DARED TO MAKE SUCH A MOVE..
    IT is MUCH Easier to GO ANY OTHER WAY – WITHOUT THE RESULTANT ATTACKS from This Orchestrated Hate Campaign That Has been effective in Taking Tim Tebow away from any FAIR opportunity to show his “STUFF” In REAL GAME SITUATIONS in the NFL!

    In many cases as with the JETS – They were AFRAID he would do WELL! SO THEY REFUSED TO USE HIM AT ALL AT QB, even if it meant continuing to lose. THEY COULD CARE LESS ABOUT THEIR FANS !

    NOW WITH THE EAGLES – HE DID DO WELL & THEY CHOSE TO IGNORE THIS – and INSTEAD CHOSE – TO FALL INTO OBEDIENT LOCK-STEP WITH THE REST OF THE “POWER BROKER’S CONTROLLED LEAGUE” AND HELP CONTINUE ITS EFFECTIVE INFAMOUS TIM TEBOW NFL BLACKBALL CAMPAIGN!!

    IT ALSO SEEMS TO DOUBLE AS SOME KIND OF DEMONIC, ELITIST “BACKROOM GAME”
    HA – HA !!

    YES.. TIM’s APPARENT LAST HOPE – CHIP KELLY, TOO, ALSO HAS SHOWN HIS “TRUE COLORS”

    AGAIN ! BOYCOTT THE NFL –
    Till They Remove this Tim Tebow “Black-Ball” Ban !!

    (OBVIOUSLY NOT OVER YET!)

    • brandi says:

      You hit the nail on the head with control issues.

      Every Pro Sports League has dealt with at one time or another having a Player who is actually bigger than the league. None like it. But every one until the NFL and Tim Tebow realized the massive new passion for their game and their League more than compensated for any potential loss of control, being swept up in Hollywood-like hype and the ego hits other Players feel.

      The NFL for some odd reason decided they don’t need the growth in Fans, Popularity, Prestige, Image, Worldwide Recognition.

      It’s the first time in Pro Sports in the US where arrogance won out over gratefully accepting the newfound riches in money and popularity. Players like Tim Tebow take leagues to higher levels than they’ve ever reached before. And Tim brings an impeccable reputation that’s unmatched in Sports, not just Football.

      It would be just mind-boggling if it wasn’t so infuriating.

      David O.: Agree totally and know he will be vindicated as well as ALL his millions of fans…God is not finished yet and has the last word, not the NFL!!!:D

  17. Bigfan says:

    Sad for sure! Like I said give it another week.

  18. Danny says:

    And the answer to the cowboys qb situation is.. Matt Cassell .. per report

  19. David says:

    According to http://www.rotoworld.com
    Dallas
    Cowboys acquired QB Matt Cassel from the Bills.
    NFL.com’s Albert Breer reports the sides are swapping 2017 draft picks as compensation, with the Bills getting a fifth-rounder. The 33-year-old veteran provides experienced insurance behind fill-in starter Brandon Weeden, who has been among the worst starters in the league when he’s taken the field. It’s possible the Cowboys will eventually turn to Cassel. The earliest Tony Romo (collarbone) can return is Week 11.

    Chicago
    Bears promoted QB David Fales from the practice squad.
    CB Bryce Callahan was waived in a corresponding roster move. Fales will back up Jimmy Clausen for however long Jay Cutler (hamstring) is sidelined.

    • ck says:

      David: Willing to sign “THE WORST STARTER” if that doesn’t say something and no wonder people (fans) have started to leave the NFL in droves with their $$$ leading the way!

    Ian Rapoport ‏@RapSheet 2h2 hours ago
    The #Cowboys are bringing up Kellen Moore from the practice squad, source said. They had QBs in for workouts, but will go with Moore.

    This was before they traded for Cassel, so he’ll probably go back to the practice squad.

  21. David says:

    Philly now has 4 QBs. Morris was resigned to the practice squad.

    Jeff McLane ‏@Jeff_McLane 2h2 hours ago
    #Eagles practice squad moves:
    Signed: QB Stephen Morris and WR Jonathan Krause.
    Released: WR Quron Pratt and RB Kevin Monangai.
