Sep 5, 2013 Full story: BleacherReport 58

Those NFL fans who have grown tired of the Tim Tebow circus likely breathed a sigh of relief on Saturday when the New England Patriots did not retain the former Florida star as part of the 53-man roster.

If it is the tebow "fanmaniacs" that have been the problem, why would people breathe a sigh of relief as you say it?

People just wouldn't care one way or another.... But that isnt it .. for some reason people actively go against the guy. I just dont get it.

With Tebow it is all about the image, the façade. He won't play another position because he can't preach from the bully pulpit if he is a running back or tight end

Tebow has some talent that didnt come out during his time with the patriots. He should either change positions or head north to the Canadian League.

Case in point:

According to TheMMQB's Peter King, speaking Thursday night on the NBC broadcast, Tebow received an "inquiry" about joining an NFL team at a position other than quarterback. King reports that Tebow declined the request. He also has said no to Canadian football and US Rugby.

Tebow wants to play quarterback. In the NFL. That's it, apparently. He pretty much spelled it out in a tweet last week, which said in part:

"I will remain in relentless pursuit of continuing my lifelong dream of being an NFL quarterback."

When Tebow signed this offseason with the Patriots, there was immediate chatter about him switching to tight end to compensate for them losing Rob Gronkowski to injury and Aaron Hernandez to murder charges. The move never happened. Tebow received some training-camp snaps as a personal protector on the punt team, but his uniform number — 5 —indicated he was primarily viewed in New England as a quarterback. And apparently, not a good enough one, as he was cut.

After being released by the Broncos, Jets and Patriots — teams with varying degrees of quarterback proficiency, ahem — Tebow might need to look in the mirror. We can't blame a young man for chasing his dreams, and we commend his drive, but playing quarterback in the NFL again might be pretty tough to achieve at this point.

I think the Jaguars could use Tebow at QB. Tebow would bring his fan base and likely fill the stadium with at least curiousity seekers. If the Jaguars hit a win streak with Tebow at the helm they would be the most watched team in the 2013-2014 NFL season.

Tebow is not even on an NFL roster. Give it a rest. Jim Brown at age 50 had a better chance of playing.
As long as it QB or bust, he's a bust. If he is willing to give special teams a go then maybe but just maybe.
The sun has set on Tebow.

Excellent, excellent. Like you much better when you're cerebral than a wise ass. You got skills. Hope to see them more often. Again, excellent.

I think Tebow will take the other position once he is sure he won't get a QB spot.

Even though JAX said they wouldn't take him, after Gabbert got shut out by the putrid Chiefs, at least Tebow managed a field goal against them in a loss

Think you might be surprised how good the chiefs are. Past few years they have had great draft picks lacking only a QB to pull it all together. Now they have one, expect big things fom Chiefs, that means making the playoffs.

Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't that FG come only because the Bronco's D forced a turnover and then Tebow went 3 and out and they kicked a FG?

Wasn't that game also a "must win" game that TT failed to win to insure that Denver controlled it's own destiny that year?

You are very perceptive and accurate.
To get it, as you said, realize that scripture tells the future ahead of time. Hundreds of times without error. Because this is mathmatically impossible, this means that the author is outside the time/space domain. And His always being correct makes it smart for us to listen to Him. He tells not only of the death, burial and ressurection of Jesus, but also tells us of a "prince of the power of the air", who has corrupted mankind and blinds them to the truth of their own creator. You have a choice. Accept the creator, Jesus, or continue to live under the control of the corrupting prince, who goes by many names...destroyer, devil, satan to name a few. Those who have chosen against Jesus will speak badly of Jesus Himself and any that profess faith in Him. Tim professes faith in Jesus. Now you know why some people go against Tim.
Try this test. Mention God, Buddha, Muhammed, Zoroaster, Moon, or any other religious leader and you get ho hum responses. Mention Jesus Christ and get powerful emotional reactions like the ones you are referring to.
Mankind can't see spiritual truth without the assistance of God's Holy Spirit. Only those who have accepted Christ are given this assistance. Hope you continue your research which leads to the scales falling from your eyes.

tim Tebow is a wuarterback, a cerebral instinctive wuarterback who likes to judge the situation and make the call accordingly. he is good at it and that is why he wants only to be a quarterback.

Nobody wants an instinctive cerebral wuarterback. Time for another dorm room kegstand.

Maybe Suburban Meyer can bring Timmy up to Columbus to do some yard work.
