Tim Tebow

ONLY THE MEDIOCRE are always at their best & I'm afraid Tim Tebow was at his best against the N.Y. Giants. I believe the Patriots will cut him this weekend.

I like Tim Tebow, notwithstanding two unfortunate things about him: 1) he was a Gator, and 2) he's a religious zealot. But he comes across as a nice guy and it's a shame he has not succeeded in the NFL as he did in college.

He had some success with the Broncos, but then along came Peyton Manning. The stupid Jets never even gave him a chance and why the Patriots took him is a mystery to me, since they already had Tom Brady plus a reliable backup.

I'd like to see Tebow end up with a team that could use his unique skillset. Sure, he's not a classic pocket passer. But there are a number of teams out there without a playoff quality quarterback. If he's not picked up by another NFL team, will he end up in Canada, playing in the CFL? Arena football (does it still exist?)? Or will he become a modern day, bible-thumping Elmer Gantry?

Arena football is mostly passing and Tim is not a good passer. The CFL looks good to me. Or he could go knocking on doors and handing out those little brochures.

I suspect Laura's prediction may be the closest to what happens: selling God as a motivational speaker on the mega-church circuit.

The press loves "rags to riches" stories--more so, the reverse. Mediocre players are ignored. T'was ever thus.

Like FSU's Chris Weinke who won the Heisman and than disappeared into NFL obscurity.

His notoriety far exceeds his abilities as a football player. I predict he'll leave the NFL sooner than later and make millions as a motivational speaker on the mega-church circuit.

A very plausible prospect. There's always been a lot of money in the God business.

It seems, since he is not suited for the QB position, some team might want to give him a try at another position, maybe fullback.

Except that the fullback position seems to be going the way of the mimeograph machine.

I'll keep this info in mind if every I'm unfortunate enough to be forced into a discussion about basketball.

I haven't seen a basketball game since I left high school.
