What Happened To Tim Tebow?

It was only a couple of years that Tebow Mania was in full effect and there was seemingly not a second on ESPN where there was not something about Tebow. Then he was traded to the Jets and all of the turmoil that came after that. The Jets must have been convinced that he could not be a good enough qb that they even started Greg McElroy over him towards the end of the season. All of what happened begs everyone to answer the question of "What has happened to Tim Tebow?".

 After the season ended, there were reports that Tebow might be heading back to Jacksonville to play for the Jags and be back in Florida where he played college ball. Those reports where quickly shot down by the Jaguars as the said that they had not interest in Tebow. Now there has been a couple of reports saying that the Chiefs might be interested in Tebow, but then they got Alex Smith so they most likely will not get Tebow. It seems that every time a rumor comes out that Tebow might go to a team, they deny or do something that will prevent it. Does this mean that teams are trying to make sure that Tebow does not come to their teams next year, but the biggest question is if he  has he done enough to be able to play quarterback in the NFL?

  We all know Tebow for his late game heroics where he would almost always lead the Broncos back to victory, and we all will never forget that overtime playoff win against the Steelers. But for every beautiful pass that gave his team the lead, there was two or three passes that sailed over the receivers head or never even got to him. Also for all those late game heroics, he also had a terrible game for three quarters and did awful against the Patriots right after the Steelers upset. Maybe NFL teams are afraid that Tebow might not be good enough to keep their teams in the games long enough to do his patented late game heroics. If he could not inspire enough hope to start over Mark Sanchez, did what does that say to other teams about his ability to start on their teams. Tebow might have a future in the NFL, but it will not be at quarterback, and he might not like that. He will need to accept that reality or else he might be sitting on the bench all year once again.

  Where do you guys think Tebow will go to, or do you think that he will change positions  Just drop a comment below and let me know.

    I agree, I've grown up in Denver and I squander over what Tebow did for us, but I couldn't of been happier getting Peyton, I instantly forgot about Tebow, now he's a lost puppie in a dogs world.

    I agree, he kind of got lost overnight and it is a little sad. he does have talent, someone needs to find out what that is though

    Tebow won 8 out of the 13 games he's started, and led a slumping 1-4 Broncos to the playoffs. I don't care if his passing percentage is under 50% or whether he throws the football in a non-conventional way; he wins games. And that's all that counts in the NFL. It's disgusting how the Jets have horrendously misused him (or not even at all), scared other teams from taking a chance on him, and ruined his career. Jacksonville is the ideal place for him in my mind- proven running back and potent receivers.

    I just want Tebow to have a fair shot. I have seen team after team give a QB game after game and the QB doesn't win, or even look all that good lossing. Tebow did take a 1-4 team to the playoffs and even won a game no one thought he would. Put the chatter to rest. Someone needs to give the kid a real shot to see if he has what it takes or not. There are plenty of teams out there who need to rebuild and what better way to gain some capital than to hire Tebow for pennies on the dollar for what he will bring in?

    But he was given a shot, and though it was a "low-percentage one", he showed he had what it takes to succeed in the NFL. The question is whether the capital he'll bring in for a team can outweigh the baggage he carries with him as well, which can turn negative.

    I am a huge Tebow fan. I honestly believe Rex Ryan traded for him so he wouldn't lose to him. Who trades for a player and BARELY uses them, even when your QB is getting sacked by a teammate rear-end? its unreal i am hoping he gets to start somewhere. I really do

    Tebow will never be a starting NFL quarterback or a good one anyway. He may be a decent back up but I doubt even that.

    The problem with some of those wins is that they came by luck or by the leg of matt prater. if marion barber does not go out of bounds, tebow does not make the playoffs

    Good point there, but the jets brought him in for the publicity and it did not work out too well for them

    Tebow may not make a great starter. But he doesn't have to does he? Not all QBs who start are great. I bet there will be 10+ QBs who get more than one start this year who's stats are equal to or worse than Tebows. But until a team puts him under center for most of a season... we are going to keep talking about this.

    I just find it a little scary that the Jets, a team that was just plain awful last season did not start Tebow once. What does that say to the Nfl and the rest of the teams. The Jets must have saw something when he practiced that made them think that he could not win games for them

    The fact that Ryan did not start him might be the reason why there does not seem to be any interest in him. If the jets did not trust him to win games for them then who should

    dont want to sound like a smart ass but he was a starting qb, and he did win some games. But i do agree that now he might not even be a good backup, something happened when he was with the Jets and now the Tebow magic is gone
