    My guess is he'll stay in shape and his agent will shop him around when a team loses a starting QB to injury. I seriously doubt that he'll be picked up by anyone, he simply has not shown enough to be a starting NFL QB and he isn't a good choice for a backup because of QB controversies, distractions, etc. If nobody picks him up this year I hope he'll just forget it and move on to something else.

    Should have made a position switch. The window is closing. I've never seen him as a coach. Just doesn't seem like the cerebral type. I mean, wasn't inability to read coverage part of his problem as a QB in the majors?

    good for Tim by not switching positions and not going to the CFL. He has earned a chance to play QB in the NFL.

    He could be like Jonah Lomu of New Zealand: a beast on the wing that no one could tackle. I think it's his patriotic duty to elevate US rugby to a level of respect. :)

    I understand the dude looks as ugly as it gets in the game, but tell me another time a QB had been drafted in the 1st round, started 16 games for the worst team in the league, won most of them, won a playoff game, and then never started again. Oh, on a side note, this QB is arguably one of the greatest college QBs to even play.

    It defies logic to me. I can't comprehend how a guy gets his shot and emphatically exceeds expectations, wins, and then is shut out of the league.

    Everyone is so caught up in his throwing percentage and how he "looks" throwing the ball. It's not like he's a turnover machine. It's not like a very high percentage of his throws are dink and dunks.

    The only explanation that I can conceive as reasonable is that no team wants to deal with the media crap that comes along with him. He's certainly good enough to start in the NFL (he's proven that!). But to put up with the media is a pain in the butt for a guy who isn't the whole package.

    The other hilarious misconception is that the media follows him because of his "fans." That's as far from the truth as I've seen. Go to the comments section of any Tebow article. 95% of it is negative. And I mean Negative! The media follows Tebow because his Haters click those links. The haters won. Congrats. You took down one of the rare decent people that plays professional sports.

    The Haters didn't cause him to get cut , the fact that he cant read defenses or throw a out route caused him to get cut. are we going to go w/ the anti-Christian conspiracy theories again?

    I didn't realize that 2 TDs and 2 INTs was considered a "turnover machine."

    I don't think religion has anything to do with his problems making a team. I think his religiousness has to deal with a lot of people not liking him though. I think there are loads of reasons why people hate him. I mean, this fringe NFL starting QB has a crazy media following. That's good enough reason to hate him right there.

    If you were running an NFL franchise and didn't have crap to pick from at QB, would you really want to take a chance on this guy that will draw more media attention than you've ever had x10? Cameras everywhere. Distracting all your players asking Tebow questions all the time? I wouldn't.

    Maybe if he were Peyton Manning it would be worth it. But it's just not worth it for a guy who, while proving he can WIN, doesn't blow you away with his skill set as a QB.

    It's the strangest ousting of an NFL player I've ever seen.

    Some people hate him just for existing.

    I love the guy but it's hard to argue that he can really make the throws that an NFL quarterback is required to make. He has other skills but they need the right guy at QB.

    I am a huge Tebow fan, but Romo is 10 times the QB Tebow is.

    Add me to the Rugby camp. That would be killer. He would dominate on the pitch (that's what a rugby field is called right). I'd buy the jersey and watch the games.

    I certainly wouldn't take him on my NFL team as a qb.

    Depends if you think stats are more important than wins. If the latter you have little argument, 63% win percent for tim, 59% for tony.

    Not sure how you calculated 10 times better. I am sure 10 tebows would dominate 1 romo.

    IMO, the inability to complete some of his really short passes did Tim in. He was always decent at slinging it. When he threw those short touch passes and the ball didn't reach the rb or receiver, it was an OMG (no disrespect intended) moment. He threw a good deep ball, however he had a high incompletion percentage because of the easy throws he messed up.

    With all I wrote, I still think he gets a chance somewhere in the near future. I've never seen another player that can look so good at times and so bad at other times. Its truly mind boggling.

    TT won't be called. It's over imo. Tim has to know the door is closed for sure before he moves on and it looks like he is still hopeful. He will do well whatever he chooses to do.

    TT looked really bad against the Bucs third string defense. I love the guy, but he's done as a QB.

    I think sitting on the 49ers bench for 10 years helped shape his offensive philosophy.
