    I still stubbornly hope that Tebow will find his way back onto an NFL roster.

    TT would almost certainly be a backup QB in the NFL learning the ropes now, if not for the circus surrounding him.

    TT's chances in the NFL primarily hinge on him proving himself to such a degree that the hassle of dealing with that circus is worth it to his potential employer... or the employer actually wants to sell the circus.

    In concept, TT's situation is not much different than the Michael Sam story this year. Most NFL teams didn't think Sam was a good enough player to justify dealing with the circus that comes with him. Rams took that chance, but my guess is that he doesn't last long unless Sam turns out to be a very, very good NFL player.

    Sigh, another post deleted. Okay, I am going to delete my account here and erase the bookmark as this forum continues to dwindle in membership.

    Your post was fine... for Too Hot.

    This is a sports forum. I'm guessing the mod that deleted your post already told you that.

    Yes, if such a thing can be categorized. Danny Wuerfel and Emmitt Smith anyone?

    Tim should be a high school coach or teenage athlete mentor.
    He would touch many more lives that way.

    Who cares about the circus? One could argue that the circus is good. What is football but a circus anyway? A diversion from the real circus that is life. Besides if a team, say the 49ers, have a bunch of other stuff that yields a bad circus, maybe they would want a good circus. At the end of the day, if the fans are demanding something, like a change at quarterback because theirs is sucking, then at least your fans have something to cheer for. The game is played for the fans, not the media, not the players or anyone else. Without the fans, it's just a fun game for the players. Tebow should be put on a squad to gain fans, to win, and for the fun of the league. I am a fan of the NY Giants and possibly one of my favorite and FUN NFL seasons was watching his second round playoff season with the Denver Broncos. Another year of that and I might have been a Denver fan for good. I was rooting hard for all of them and liked the players, most of the fans, etc. The NFL is so dumb.

    True, although I bet that circus is a bit more muted by time. He may be in a much better position now.

    I would be surprised if TT's agent hasn't sent video's of his throws to NFL teams. The knock on him may still be he can't read defenses, or he will never be a drop back qb, but the trend is mobile qbs. Sam's brings a circus. JM brings a circus. I can't help believe that its TT's Christian faith that is the roadblock as to why no team is giving him even a whiff. That saddens me. Anyhow, he will succeed in whatever he chooses and am glad for his doing things the right way.

    Its sad to watch him work his butt off only to be disappointed again and again. I wonder how many more years he will do it before he realizes the NFL doesn't want someone with his beliefs openly in their organization. Michael Sam, however, is completely different.

    I suspect the circus will be hot on GoG8rs' trail. Lot of anticipation around what forum he will land on.

    It has nothing to do with his faith, stop it with this blabber! This is the same thing the other guy said that got his post deleted.

    Face it, as much as I don't agree with it, Tim hasn't been given the chance because he is very inconsistent in the NFL in a pocket passing offense. I do still think he is at least better than a majority of the back ups that are still employed if he can't be a starter, but his faith is not what's holding him back. If he can be put in a system similar to SF or Seattle, I think he will be a lot better off.

    Also, an overwhelming majority of the players, coaches, owners and other various staff members in the NFL are Christians and there's no denying that. Stop playing the oppressed Christian angle, fellas.

    Are you sure it's not his long wind-up, lack of experience playing under center, tendency to put balls in the dirt, sometimes questionable reads or the fact that his game is built on his body taking a pounding? The deficiencies in Tim's game were well-documented before the draft. You can ascribe it to faith bias but I think that ignores the much simpler reality that LOTS of good college QBs don't make it at the next level regardless of faith.

    Do tell, just what are Michael Sam's 'beliefs' and why do they matter to you?
