    WTF?

    Philadelphia Eagles release QB Tim Tebow

    [​IMG]


    When the Eagles dealt Matt Barkley on Friday, it looked as though Tim Tebow's path to the 53-man roster was clear.

    Unfortunately for him, Chip Kelly only planned on keeping two quarterbacks. Tebow was let go on Saturday during the final hours of roster downsizing, according to NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport.


    ESPN first reported the cut.

    Tebow's preseason was an interesting one. He showcased a new throwing motion and much improved mechanics, though he still struggled at times with reading defenses. He finished the four-game slate with a completion percentage near 60 with a pair of throwing touchdowns and an interception. He rushed for 82 yards and another score.

    Heading into this preseason, he carried the weight of the worst completion percentage in football since 2010 (47.9).

    Because of his association with Chip Kelly, many thought there was a larger plan at work. Tebow is more than just a quarterback and Kelly has been open in the past to cross-training players at different positions. At the least, he could have been a weapon on special teams and on two-point conversions.

    So it goes for one of the league's most popular players. Though it looks like this could be his last shot -- he came to training camp in Philadelphia after a long break from the game -- Tebow has proven his detractors wrong in the past.

    He last stepped on the field in a regular-season game late in the 2012 season with the Jets

    I guess Jesus doesn't want Tebow to play for the Eagles. I wonder what plans Jesus has in store for him.

    Tebow was out of the league for two years, comes back, and by the fourth preseason game is balling out again already. The guy should be a starter, let alone a fucking third stringer??

    4th preseason game: 11-17 189 yards 2 TD 32 rushing yards (and he only played two quarters)

    January 8, 2012 (vs #1 ranked Pittsburgh defense, playoffs) : 316 yards 2TD 50 Rushing yards 1 TD

    December 26, 2010 (second start ever): 16-29 308 Yards 1 TD 27 Rushing yards 1 TD



    And let's not forget how he took over a horrible 1-4 team that Kyle Orton was the QB of, went 7-4 with them the rest of the season, won the division, won the first playoff game. Then he never got a chance to start in the league again. :mad:



    And keep in mind, he hasn't even started a full season's worth of games yet. Every other QB we're told to wait at least three years to make any judgments about.

    Insane. The guy was a winning quarterback that got a raw deal.

    Does the fact that Chip Kelly got rid of both Matt Barkley and Tim Tebow mean that Chip hates white people too?

    I root for him because he's not a thug who needs a fall guy, but we may have to accept that he's a shitty QB.

    Everyone was sure that Barkley getting traded meant Tebow made the team. Major sports outlets were writing about Tebow like he had made the team.


    TMZ had reported they saw him at the airport yesterday - I knew something like this was gonna happen :(

    Multiple 300 yard passing games in a career that's spanned less than a full season, plus all he's ever done is win :dontknow:

    Maybe Jesus should tell him to be a tight end like he SHOULD be.

    If bradford goes down they didnt want people marching in the street for tebow to jump sanchez on the depth chart. They were also hoping the 2 pt conversion would be moved up to the 1 yd line which didnt happen. I liked him as a 3rd qb. Disappointing.

    This preseason, he had more passing yards than Matt Barkley, more TDs, higher completion %, more rushing yards, fewer interceptions...


    yet barkley gets shuffled around to another team, and tebow gets nothing??

    Barkley has started three NFL games, lost them all, threw four interceptions and zero tds. but no one says he can't throw, just tebow, the guy who has proven he can win at the highest levels :facepalm:

    Tebow will be back. Bradford will be hurt by week 3 and sanchez will be stinking up the joint by week 5

    Sanchez is a proven loser. Tebow is a proven winner. It would make sense.

    Can we stop with the "all Tim Tebow does is win" bullshit??

    I'm pretty sure his career record as an NFL starter is 8-6....you don't go to Canton based on that.

    He WAS a great college player. ..one of my favorites....but he's NOT an NFL caliber qb.

    There's a ton of great college players who fizzle in the NFL (Maurice Clarette, Danny Wuerffel, Ryan Leaf, Matt Leinert...even Reggie Bush didn't translate to superstar status)

    I know people who cover the Eagles, he had done nothing in camp practices or the previous 3 preseason games. He did well vs the Jets 3rd and 4th stringers in the 4th preseason game (a game that's played by bubble players, some parking lot attendants and a hot dog vendor or 2. )

    I feel bad for the guy...seems like a truly great person, but that doesn't get you a roster spot.

    Agree but sanchez has 2 years of knowing the offense and did okay last year. He is definitely not a starter but one of the better backups in the league.

    Chip doesnt want the potential media circus when bradford gets hurt
