Perhaps Tim Tebow has seen his final experiment in the NFL. This afternoon the Philadelphia Eagles released Tebow with head coach Chip Kelly telling the media he has improved as a quarterback but he simply isn’t good enough to be the third string signal caller for the Birds. From pft.com , “Tim’s really progressed but we didn’t feel like he was good enough to be the three right now,” Kelly said. “He just needs to get out there and get more reps.”
Kelly continued to tell the media that the Eagles will continue to seek out a 3rd quarterback for their roster. On Friday, the team traded QB Matt Barkley to the Arizona Cardinals.
The comments from Kelly should finally put to rest the fact that Tim Tebow is not an NFL caliber quarterback. He was fantastic in college, but he has a very unconventional release which makes Byron Leftwich, the human windmill, look like Joe Montana.
And stop right now with the comments that he is getting tossed out of the league because he’s a Christian, stop. STOP right now. He was shipped out of Denver. He couldn’t make it in New York with the Jets or in New England with the Patriots. Now, he’s not made it in one of the most pass happy offenses in the league where throwing the ball down the field is as easy as a handoff with today’s rules. The man is simply not an NFL signal caller.
Yes, he is an extraordinary human but he is not NFL quality. Only 32 quarterbacks get to be starters in the league, he couldn’t even make third string. Go back to the booth Tim. The college football season has started.
