Out of the Blue

Wow, Tim Tebow coming to the Jets? Just when I thought the hype couldn't escalate, Tebowmania moves to New York. Just wow. Well, I love a good dose of chaos (as long as it doesn't involve my team), so this should be awesome to watch. Where's my popcorn?

I think it is funny you guys are bitching about Tebow - but that is the only thing people are talking about in here. I don't care either way. He is a pretty damn good player for how young he is. I look forward to watching him some more.

That's funny, since pretty much the entire Republican field of candidates are trying to outdo each other with how fast and how thoroughly they intend to turn the U.S. into a Christian theocracy.

Even if they wanted to (which they probably don't), they would never be able to. It's just politics - they are trying to appeal the not-insignificant religious fanatic portion of their voter base. Everything everyone says while campaigning is patronizing bullshit. The only thing anyone who intends to vote in an election can do is try to determine who will be least sleazy and corrupt when put into power. Me, I can't vote the sleazy, incompetent retard in there now out fast enough. The crapshoot is whether I put an equally incompetent sleazeball in his place. Ah, isn't politics fun?

Oh nos the big scary Christians. I'm not even religious and it doesn't bother me. I'd say the whole political correctness that's rampant these days is a far bigger threat than Christianity.

You're one of those people that goes "but Zimmerman was hispanic!" aren't you?



In any case, Tebow is an awful QB. Denver had to invent an entirely new offense around him. If Sanchez goes down the Jets can't just put Tebow in his place, because Tebow can't operate like that. His arm sucks. That doesn't get better. Football sense gets better, experience gets better, but Tebow has incredible sense and pretty good experience. It's his physical skills that aren't there, and those aren't likely to suddenly appear in his mid-20s. However, using him on one play every or every other possession isn't a terrible idea - throw him out there and any defense will be confused. Will Sanchez throw the ball? Will he give it to a RB? Will he give it to Tebow? Will Tebow throw the ball? Will he run?

I hope FOX keeps Fringe for another season so they can wrap up the story-lines. I hate unfinished series and early cancellations. FOX seems to be the worst at cutting series off at the knees.

I guess it's good they've held on this long (Fox has canceled/ended other shows this spring, but still no word on Fringe), but I keep hoping we'll have an answer soon.

Alright, I didn't see many of Tebow's games, but in all of the ones I did see it was impossible to argue that he was actually a good player. He had lucky break after lucky break against truly atrocious teams, and then he beat an injured Steelers team.

Right. I'm not saying he's a good QB. He might never BE a good QB. (though he actually played very well against the Steelers, their injuries notwithstanding.)

All I'm saying is he was a ROOKIE QB. I don't think there's ever been a rookie QB that's ever been as lambasted as much as he is. Even Ryan Leaf and JaMarcus Russell didn't get this much shit. And they were far, far worse.

Running the ball on every play like he does, he wouldn't last more than a couple of seasons as a starter.

No, he probably wouldn't. So? Not every QB is another Peyton Manning or Tom Brady. Some will turn out to be the Jeff Georges of the world. Or worse.

I can agree with you that running the ball will lead to him getting hurt. Just look at QB's who have ran alot in the past and you can see then getting crunched. But I think he proved he had the ability to be a QB in the league when he beat the steelers with his arm. You can say they were an injured team or what not, but that didnt make Tebow throw any better. It just made the game plan work better, tebow still had to make the throws. So he has the ability, like alot of QB's coming out of college, its a matter of developing into a better QB than just a quick look and run guy.

Yeah, Timmy 'Spread Option' Tebow should have an illustrious career in the NFL. Someone just needs to let him know that's it's not college ball anymore. He should be fine after that. Rolleyes

And wooo! Did Payton and the Saints ever get F'd in the A and deservedly so. In fact Goodell didn't go far enough, but he's a corporate scumbag so no surprise there. The whole fucking team should be out for the season! I don't know if this is worse or what Bill Belicheat and the New England Cheatriots do?

It's practically required, you mean. Hell, that's part of why he gets so much attention from the MSM. He's so inspirational and all that.

It's not really HIS fault. It's not like he's attention whoring like Brett Favre. The media has decided to focus on him as the next good player that they can trash mercilessly. Ben Roethlisberger SUUUUCCCKKEED in his first season too, but the Steelers went 15-1 because they were a fantastic team, and all the media clowns just went "Well, he's working in the system! He's learning! He's a great QB."

When Tebow went 7-1, or whatever it was in that stretch, most of them were bleating "He sucks! He can't do anything! He has to stick in the system!"

So what's the difference? Oh yes, Tebow is open about being a Christian. And that's no longer really allowed.

(Btw, not implying that Tebow's going to be as good as Roethlisberger, who did become one of the top ten, maybe top five QBs in the league.)
