This guy has been used and abused by his employer, they traded for him just to sell tickets and then didn’t give him an opportunity to succeed now another slap in the face of having the 3rd stringer get to start the final two games shame on the jets.December 19, 2012 5:26 pm at 5:26 pm #931992WIYMember

yeah, this sports world really is sinking lower and lower. forget common courtesy or even respect, homage nor loyalty. every player is looked upon as a product instead of a person. is he vested in this team or not. if not, get rid of him. it’s not only the jets, goq, it’s almost every team in any sport.December 19, 2012 6:09 pm at 6:09 pm #931995The FrumguyParticipant
How important is this (or any sports event) in the “big scheme” of things?December 19, 2012 8:06 pm at 8:06 pm #931996
If you dont find it important than you need not comment why did u even go into this thread if sports is beneath you?December 19, 2012 8:26 pm at 8:26 pm #931997☕ DaasYochid ☕Participant
At $2 million per, he’s hardly poor. I would probably take that kind of money to be abused as he has been. Then I could afford a Rolex.December 19, 2012 11:43 pm at 11:43 pm #931998
Tim Tebow is for sure not going to be there Quarterback next year.What is the point of starting him. They want to see if the other Quarterback is good enough to be a starter or they will go with Mark Shanzaz or free agents.December 20, 2012 1:08 am at 1:08 am #931999
This guy has been royally wrecked, he was brought in because of his famous name and was not given a legitimate chance to prove himself and he played very well last year, hes not what you would call a classical strong armed qb but he has always been a winner when given a chance, one more thing a black player would never have been disrespected this way.December 20, 2012 2:36 am at 2:36 am #932000far eastMember
oh come on. The guy was terrible last year. He completed under 50% of his passes that’s atrocious. Jets aint gonna win with this guy and if he was half decent in practice they would have played him by nowDecember 20, 2012 3:11 am at 3:11 am #932001
But he won far east he got them into the playoffs and beat the steelers he did his very best every week and found ways to win, was it pretty always? no it was not but he was scrappy and found a way.December 20, 2012 4:31 pm at 4:31 pm #932002apushatayidParticipant
I wouldnt mind being paid a million dollars to hold a clip board on sundays from August through early January.December 20, 2012 4:59 pm at 4:59 pm #932003gregaaronMember
Normally I’d agree with you, but funny things happen on the Jets sideline.December 20, 2012 7:59 pm at 7:59 pm #932004akupermaParticipant
Sports are like that. The Jets will probably trade or otherwise get rid of him. He probably would be better off in a market that has a higher percentage of religious people (note that except for frum Jews, New York is perhaps the most anti-religious place in America).December 20, 2012 8:28 pm at 8:28 pm #932005BaalHaboozeParticipant
Wherever he ends up, he will be respected.

if anything Denver won in spite of him rather than because of him. Their Defense and Kicker is what carried them to the playoffs. Granted, he did seem to have some 4th quarter magic. But to rely on that consistently is simply foolish.December 21, 2012 9:38 am at 9:38 am #932007
What an ego
Wants to be the starting QB
What does he know
Throws worse than the average newbie
Got some free dough
No play for the checks he’s cashing
Can’t they see though
That his team, the Jets, are crashingDecember 21, 2012 4:58 pm at 4:58 pm #932008apushatayidParticipant
“Granted, he did seem to have some 4th quarter magic”
I’m not sure one needs magic to beat the jets. They usually beat themselves. They did last year against tebow and denver.December 21, 2012 5:22 pm at 5:22 pm #932009
Whos the backup this week tebow or sanchez?December 23, 2012 1:08 am at 1:08 am #932010
OK, now that I had my fun with the silly previous post, here’s a real answer:
Tebow seems to be a really decent young guy. He has been extremely gracious in handling the way he has been (mis)used this year, the way he never was given a chance to play regularly, and the way he wasn’t given a chance to start when the starter failed. In summary, he seems to be more of a “mentch” than anyone in pro sports nowadays.
He shouldn’t be a NFL QB. He’s a great athlete, he’s built like a tank, and can run really well. But, his throws have no accuracy. If he was a fullback who occasionally threw option passes, that might be his best fit.
If the starter (Sanchez) was a better throwing QB, Tebow would be a change of pace. As is, a switch just changes a poor throwing QB who’s not a deep threat with an even poorer throwing QB who’s a running threat – this isn’t something that can cause a defense substitution problems.
-Tebow’s a nice young man and I wish him the best of luck.
-He was 100% mislead as to how he would be used in NY.
-I don’t want to see him as my team’s QB.
-He may find success playing a different position.December 23, 2012 2:05 am at 2:05 am #932011rebdonielMember
Tebow is a great athlete, and I have loads of respect and admiration for his courage to be vocal and public about his faith, something that we need to do as well. We need to make a place for G-d in the public sphere, and never cower away from being shluchim and ambassadors for Torah Judaism wherever we go. People will respect us when we learn not to be afraid of who we are. And, when liberal Jews complain about Christians being open and vocal about their convictions, they are merely perpetuating the decline of Judaism. The answer to strengthening the Jewish people is not by whining about a nativity scene or Tebowing, but by being public and unafraid of things like the Hanukkiah, kashrut, tzniut, kippah, shabbat, tzitzit, etc.December 23, 2012 5:36 pm at 5:36 pm #932012December 23, 2012 5:40 pm at 5:40 pm #932013
The Jets did not use him right. They say tebow is going to go to the Jaguars, were he is going to compete for a starting job.December 23, 2012 5:42 pm at 5:42 pm #932014December 24, 2012 4:09 pm at 4:09 pm #932015
Good for Tim for opting out of the wildcat he doesnt deserve to be treated like a shmatta.February 15, 2013 5:02 pm at 5:02 pm #932016
NY Jets’ Tim Tebow may be splitting up with team, but he has hate date at Texas church where he will be star speaker
He’s on the verge of being dumped by the Jets, but Tim Tebow is poised to be the star attraction at a Texas church headed by a hate-spewing preacher.

Is Tebow the next pope?
Speaking of which, now that Joseph is stepping down as pope, will he be posting more?February 21, 2013 10:22 pm at 10:22 pm #932018
He cancelled his appearance at that church.February 22, 2013 8:04 pm at 8:04 pm #932019
