    What's next for Tebow is anyone's guess. Again, no one wanted him in the spring. Did he put enough on tape during New England's preseason to convince a team that there is potential?

    The Patriots didn't see Tim Tebow fitting in at quarterback and broke ways with him on Saturday. (Ge …

    He finished the preseason 11 for 30 for 145 yards, two touchdowns, two picks and a dreadful seven sacks. Belichick apparently didn't see much better in practice and the Pats essentially gave up on using Tebow, an excellent athlete, in any non-quarterback role such as running back or tight end.

    I like Tebow. He's a tremendous human being just not much of a QB.

    That is an understatement. Here are some selected quotes from an ESPN article about his release:

    "Among the 82 quarterbacks with at least 30 pass attempts in the preseason, his 37 percent completion rate ranked last. "

    "Tebow has the fourth-lowest Total QBR (34.3) since his rookie season in 2010 among 40 QBs with at least 600 action plays, better only than John Skelton, Brandon Weeden and Blaine Gabbert."

    "Tebow is often criticized for not making decisions quick enough in the passing game. Over the last two seasons, Tebow leads all quarterbacks in average time in the pocket (3.46 seconds) and average time before pass (4.61 seconds). "

    " Over the last three seasons, 34 percent of his passes were gauged to be off-target. "

    "He’s been sacked on 10.3 percent of his dropbacks, the second-highest rate of any quarterback over the last three seasons (Kevin Kolb ranked first, 10.4)"

    Well at least NE got to see Teblow's FAIL up close as a freebie. Compare that to the savvy Jest who traded a 4th and a 6th for him and a 7th, paid $2.5mil of his bonus and released Drew Stanton a QB who might well have helped last season after also paying him a bunch of upfront money!

    Hmmm maybe I should have posted this in the epic LOL@the jets thread instead, eh?

    Lost all respect for Tebow when he turned downed a starting position in Jacksonville to be the Jets 3rd stringer...

    Pretty sure that was never offered. In fact, Jacksonville was always CONSPICUOUSLY ABSENT from any discussions involving Tebow.
