Houston Texans v New York Jets


I never got into Tebowmania but . . .

Tim Tebow won’t be playing for Jaguars next season, new GM says

Tim Tebow will not be playing for his hometown Jacksonville Jaguars next season, not if new General Manager David Caldwell has his way.

In his introductory news conference Thursday, Caldwell was adamant that the former Heisman Trophy winner at Florida and current failed Jets quarterback is not part of the team’s rebuilding plan.

“I can’t imagine a scenario in which he’ll be a Jacksonville Jaguar — even if he’s released,” Caldwell said.

And the Jets have indicated they will release Tebow, who was the odd man out when New York shuffled struggling starter Mark Sanchez and third-stringer Greg McElroy in and out of the lineup.

Jaguars owner Shad Khan has been intrigued by Tebow possibly returning to his hometown. Jacksonville has had a revolving door at quarterback recently, with heralded second-year pro Blaine Gabbert getting injured and veteran Chad Henne having mixed results this season.

“It’s not my decision,” Khan said Thursday. “I want to do whatever to help this team win. Who the players are is really the general manager’s and coaches’ [decision]…. It’s a football-side operation decision. It’s really not my decision.

“I’m telling them to take a look at Tebow and they’re saying, ‘We’re going to go in a different direction.'”


I can see why nobody wants Timmy on their team. All he has ever done is win. He took his college team to two BCS championships. His only year in the pros as a regular starter he took his team (Denver Broncos) to the playoffs and won the first game. Then he was traded to the Jets where he rode the bench all year. Now they’re dumping him.


Wikipedia:

At the end of his college career, Tebow held 5 NCAA, 14 Southeastern Conference, and 28 University of Florida statistical records.[75] He was the SEC’s all-time leader in career passing efficiency (170.8), completion percentage (67.1%), passing touchdown to interception ratio (5.5 to 1), rushing yards by a quarterback (2947), rushing touchdowns (any position) (57), and total touchdowns responsible for (145).[7][76] Among many mentions in the NCAA Division-I record book, Tebow is ranked second in career passing efficiency, third in career yards per attempt (9.33), 8th in career rushing touchdowns, and also owns the record for most consecutive games in which he both threw at least one touchdown pass and scored at least one rushing touchdown (14).[77]

    this is one of the laws that is either or.
    yes there is pain killer abuse but many times the medicine is needed

      Now it all makes sense. This is why NY wants to ban guns and confiscate them. They need them to shoot the patients in pain in emergency rooms. You know, because the pain killers are too dangerous.

      I read this the other day. It is a stream of consciousness piece with little stream and no consciousness. I felt like l was interviewing a bi-polar having a mental break in preparation to be admitted for in-patient treatment. Then I decided she is an idiot savant who can string words together. She is convinced women who marry are all whores but she likes sex with very young males. She went to law school on a lark but is not so hot on the working part after graduation. She is completely invested in her own “intelligence” but cannot find (afford) a decent place to live. I have seldom been exposed to so shallow and self absorbed a screed with so little self awareness. She calls her loony narcissism “authenticity” which is just another pop culture term for demanding to live as a grasshopper and whining when it starts getting cold. She has been dropped by everyone because she is an aging, humorless, useless boor. I used to feel compassion for anyone this screwed up but there are so many of them, and they are so bigoted and convinced of their superiority I don’t give a shit anymore.

    Tebow reminds me of guys like Doug Flutie and Trent Dilfer. They all did well in college but got no respect in the NFL even though they won games.

    The only stat that really matters is the number of “W’s”

    • 49erDweet says:

      So Jacksonville is “going a different direction”, huh? Still stuck on being the league punching bag and giving away more games it seems. Nice of the new coach to volunteer. Don’t bother remembering his name. Short timer.

    • 49erDweet says:

      Missing in all this is a clear picture of exactly how “Star Wars” derived from the “Gunsmoke” lineage, the extant dominant ruling culture during the period my kids were raised. Talk about good and evil, light and dark side, both radio and TV versions had plots and fan bases as hardcore as SW, except for an unfortunate absence of inexpensive self-recording technology.

    I’ve decided about 2013 already. We’re in hell. And, we’re in a hand basket.

  6. TorchWood says:

    Sorry. Got stuck on the pic. Fills out that shirt so well that I forgot it’s a Jets shirt. A sweet piece of man candy.

  7. TorchWood says:

    Ok. Now back to our regularly scheduled program of Obama-bashing already in progress. I hear that the NOW is bitching that O doesn’t have enough women. I keep that cover picture of “This is what a feminist looks like” that came out in 2009. Told ya so, idiots!

  8. Somebody says:

    This decision by the coaching staff of Jacksonville is stupid. Tebow is a hometown hero AND he wins games AND he will put butts in the seats!

    Jacksonville has a problem filling seats. The stadium is too large for the market, a fact many pointed out from the get go. The decision to have such a large stadium revolved around keeping the Florida-Georgia game, the Gatorbowl and the hopes of a Super Bowl. That decision has continually bitten the Jags in the ass, black out games don’t produce as much revenue.

    But hey what do I know…….I’m just a resident and a previous season ticket holder for their first decade.

    Tebow will find the right place to play….or it will find him…because he has a good attitude about the sport and he is a great athlete….and, despite what some might say…the position of quarterback in the NFL has room for his kind of playing…those players maybe get hurt quicker and have a shorter tenure…but they are exciting and add a unique element to a sometimes boring game…not as bad as baseball (forgive me) but…..just sayin’…
