It's May Day-- and it is also mayday for Tim Tebow. For the first time in his life, he is without football. HIgh school legend from his hometown of Jacksonville; Heisman Trophy winner at the University of Florida... and winning quarterback at Denver. Unfortunately, it looks like Tim Tebow's year was 2011-- when Tebow Time became winning time in Denver.
How many of us make wrong decisions-- especially in our early 20's? Against just about every expert opinion, Tebow made what turned out to be a fatal career move-- heading the the New York Jets, instead of waiting for a more fitting offer-- perhaps from his home team, the Jacksonville Jaguars. If you can make it there,. you can make it anywhere-- but if you can't, you never hear the end of it. Unfortunately, the latter happened to Tim Tebow.
So, what's next? An indoor league team-- the Omaha Beef-- have offered him a job (read: publicity for a team no one... probably even in Omaha... has heard of). The CFL is still a possibility; the Montreal Alouettes own his rights, and has offered a possiblity fo compete for a backup spot on the roster.
A recent poll showed 68 percent of respondents want Tebow to move positions, to stay in the NFL Will he do that? We shall see... The options are rather limited-- but remember this... Tim Tebow has spent his whole life beating the odds. Tebow Time may be no more-- maybe-- but Tebow's time as a football player may not be.
That's my take... I'm Tom Lee.
