Has the final arrow come from the arm of Tim Tebow? Has Tebow Time finally reached 15:00? If it has come to an end, this 15 minutes of fame was well spent.
Tim Tebow came out of Florida with a Heisman trophy, a well-deserved reputation for leadership, and a LOT of doubters. If Tebow's NFL career is over, he still has 2011 to hang his hat on. You remmber 2011? The year the Denver Broncos reversed a 1-6 start to make the playoffs-- and win a dramatic overtime victory, thanks to a Tebow TD pass. Remember Tebowing? 2011 seems a long time ago...
I said when it happened the move of Tebow to the New York Jets was trouble. A lot of people agreed-- and were proven right that he should have went back to Jacksonville, to his hometown Jaguars. But that is water under the bridge now; as far as a QB is concerned, he is poison to all the general managers in the league. The consensus? His talent is not worth the Tebow circus.
Or is it? Many-- including ESPN's Colin Cowherd-- are pusing a move to the CFL for Tebow. I agree. He is not fish and he is not fowl-- he is a different breed of QB. I agree with Cowherd on this one... he needs to swallow his pride, go to the CFL for a bit, and refine his skills. If he can do that, and thrive there, he could be an in-demand QB again. It has happened before-- remember Doug Flutie? Warren Moon? Even Kurt Warner honed his skills in the Arena League before making it big. If Tebow can swallow his ego-- and just like almost all 23 year-olds, it is pretty large-- and do some time in the CFL, it may be Tebow Time again in the NFL-- but with an older, wiser, more mature Tim Tebow. It just makes sense.
That's my take.... I'm Tom Lee.
