Blacklisting Tim Tebow
Blacklisting Tim Tebow. NFL legendary coach Vince Lombardi once said "winning isn't everything, it's the only thing." In the 21st century, that statement has proven to be false. Tim Tebow is a winner in every sense of the word and denied the chance to win. The NFL is run by sleazy liberals that want nothing to do with having a NFL star that is an outspoken Christian. Management and owners have made nothing but excuses to deny Tebow a shot. It's not a conspiracy, this league is a cartel and they control every last detail.
Mike Ditka said "Tim Tebow is 'good for football, good for our country.'" Asked to perform, Tebow has a long history of old-fashioned winning. His critics are many, their complaints (completion percentage, quarterback rating, etc.) can be easily dismissed considering that one overall fact...he wins time and time again.
In 2011, the starting quarterback was Kyle Orton. After the first 5 games, the team was 1-4 and the fans were demanding Tebow be given the starting job. In week 7, Tim was the starter.
|“||8 wins and 5 losses. 17 passing TD’s and 12 rushing TD’s. A six game winning streak from weeks 9 through 14.||”|
The Denver Broncos went to the playoffs, clinching their first playoff berth and division title since 2005 as underdogs to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Tebow would lead a 29–23 overtime win. "The guy who couldn’t 'throw' threw for 316 yards and 2 TD’s, including the 80-yard game-winner on the first play in OT," against the No. 1 rated scoring defense. Denver would lose to the Patriots in the Divisional playoffs.
Despite all the success, this would be the last time Tim Tebow started a NFL football game.
Tebow would be traded to the Jets in the off-season after Denver signed Peyton Manning.

The scam begins. Tebow was brought in to be a backup quarterback to Sanchez. Coach Rex Ryan never had any interest in Tebow. The Jets owner saw a publicity stunt opportunity for increased season ticket sales. Sanchez had a bad year, the team was lousy. The fans demanded Tebow as the starter but coach Rex Ryan refused. Instead of starting the No. 2 quarterback, the coach started No. 3 quarterback Greg McElroy.
In one 16-game season, the amount of play calls Tebow had for the Jets was 40 snaps.
Tebow was released after the season. As a free agent, he would go to the New England Patriots.
New England Patriots
The Patriots signed Tebow as a backup quarterback in the preseason, possibly as a public relations ploy to improve the Patriots' declining image amid the shocking indictment for murder (and subsequent conviction) of one of its star players. Tebow would be cut before the season even started.
The Eagles brought in Tebow to compete for the 3rd string quarterback position. The Eagles preseason was productive, they led the league in TDs and total offense. After a competitive quarterback race, the scam was up. No. 3 quarterback Matt Barkley was outperformed by Tebow. Barkley would be traded at the end of preseason to the Arizona Cardinals. Tebow would be cut by Philadelphia.
|Quarterback||Completions||Yards||TD's||Interceptions||Rushing Yards||Total Yards|
- Morris became 3rd string for Philadelphia after the release of Tebow. He's an undrafted quarterback with zero NFL experience other than being on the Jacksonville Jaguars practice squad and then they cut him. Morris threw 30 interceptions as a college player.
