I care as much about Tebow being cut as I do that basketball player coming out of the closet .... None.


Have a good day.

Tebow has received and offer from....


The Omaha Beef, and indoor football team. Contract details are sketchy but it appears he will receive $75 per game if he accepts the offer.

I hope someone gives him a shot. A real shot. Rex had something personal against the kid & was never going to give him a real opportunity.

He might not have been an All-Pro in Denver, but he did enough to win, which is more than Blain Gabbert, or whoever was throwing the ball in KC, or Cleveland.

Or even Phillip Rivers..... No doubt Rivers is a much better QB, but he's not winning & winning is what it's all about.

I think more of the credit for that needs to go to John Fox and Mike McCoy. They were smart enough to realize exactly what they needed to do to make Tebow successful. They re-designed their offense to highlight the things that Tebow could do and they put him in situations to win.

I don't blame Rex for not doing the same thing. I blame Sparano for not being creative enough. I think Rex expected Sparano to figure out ways to use Tebow and fit him into the offense and Sparano was not up to the task.

But if you're going to bring Tebow in to be your #1 QB, then you've got to create your offense around what he can and can't do. Like the Broncos did. And you've got to devote yourself to that kind of offense (something the Broncos refused to do.) You've got to get someone like a Collin Klein to be his backup. You've got to have a ocuple of QBs that have the same type of skill set.

Eh..... I would imagine Tebow could beat out Blain Gabbert, Brady Quin, and maybe even John Skelton. All these guys started at least one game in 2012. There's some bad QB'ng out there.

There's going to be some rookie that will be forced into starting in 2013 & imo, they're not helping these kids out (if they aren't ready to start, if they're ready, they're ready).

Tebow wants to be a QB, let him be a QB. If they don't win, they don't win & Tebow will be forgotten like the hundreds of QBs that don't make it every year. All the while, groom your future starter, whether it be Geno Smith, or Ej Manuel.

Tyler Wilson will probably be asked to win a game or two in 2013...

Omaha Beef offers Tim Tebow a contract - will pay him $75 a game

OMAHA, Neb. -- The Omaha Beef have a job waiting for Tim Tebow if he wants it -- and the Nebraska indoor football team will even pay him $75 a game.

A day after Tebow was cut by the New York Jets, the Beef called the office of Tebow agent Jimmy Sexton to offer a standard player contract.




O lawdy from the Official Omaha Beef Football webpage

Lmao 40% of the voters don't even want Tebow

If Tebow wants to play in the Not For Long league, he needs to consider being a TE/HB for some team and get over himself.

The funny thing was when their QB McNear (something like 25 TD's and 3 INT's on the season) was asked about Tebow coming he said something akin to "that's great, I'm sure there are lots of things I can teach him about being a QB."

He really could be an excellent James Casey type of player. Maybe a few months on the free agent list will soften him up. I think Colin Klein made the switch because no one wanted to draft him as a QB. I think Tebow will need the same sort of realization before he makes that decision.

Yep forgot to include that, here's the quote.

The Beef's quarterback, James McNear, has led the team to a 5-1 start. He's completing 70 percent of his passes and has thrown for 21 touchdowns against just two interceptions.

McNear is anything but insulted by the Beef's wooing of Tebow.

"I think Tim can learn a lot from me," McNear said.

I always got the impression that Elway/Fox put Tebow in to tank the season after it looked like the playoffs were a no-go. Instead Tebow went all "Springtime for Hitler" on them.

I know the common theory (from Tebow lovers) as to why Rex never put Tebow in was because he thought that the Jets might start winning, making him look bad for supporting Sanchez.
