Jets Release Tim Tebow

The New York Jets have released Tim Tebow, the NYT reports:

Tim_tebowOn Monday morning, the Jets cut Tebow with no pomp, a victim of circumstance. They acknowledged an experiment gone awry with a news release that said, simply, “Jets waive QB Tim Tebow.” There was no mention in that release of Tebow’s statistics with the Jets, perhaps in part because there were none worth mentioning.

He was more afterthought than asset, more distraction than revelation, a decoy who played a greater role on special teams than behind center.

Business Insider adds:

"It's unclear where Tebow goes from here."

  1. Playgirl or Bible belt megachurch tour, I'm guessing. Maybe both.

  2. Aside from him being majorly closeted or just super religious, isn't he not that good of a qb anyway? I mean, i dont follow football, but i heard so many bad things from him...

  3. Finally! Goodbye and good riddance to that no-good, bush-league, evangelical low-life.

  4. Is anyone surprised? They built him up way too high, he would have had to be a superstar player for him to live up to the hype. They chewed him up and spit him out. It will be interesting to see what he does next. Start his own church, maybe?

  5. I hope it means that I don't have to hear about him anymore, especially here on Towleroad!

  6. So, guess all that praying on the field didn't help, huh?

  7. I saw some HUGE posters of a scantily clad Tim Tebow the other day at the mall. He's the new underwear model for Jockey. God had other plans for Timmy.

  8. The right wing telan-vangelicals built up Tebow as a propaganda tool for their sheeple. He never ever was ready for the big time. Denver knew but kept him for the publicity. The Jets quickly found out. Tebow knows it himself.

    Tebow will now go off on the Bible thumpers circuit and earn his living spouting Bible sayings and flashing his Heisman.

  9. Tebow was completely overrated - mediocre at best. No amount of prayer was going to help.

    He was better at playing the media than he was playing football. Timmy knew he appealed to both the Bible Thumpers and the Butt Thumpers, and milked it for all it was worth.

  10. Maybe this will give him the freedom to finally accept who he is and exit that ever shrinking closet.

  11. Where's your God NOW?

  12. He wasn't a great a player (and highly inconsistent) to begin with. Why keep him around?

  13. I might just wear my New York Jets shirt today in celebration. It had been banished to the back to the shelf in the closet the day it was announced that that blowhard joined the team.

  14. He's a closet case AND super-religious. Maybe he can buddy up with the other religious closet case David Archuleta.

  15. Like his make believe god, Timmy was mediocre at his job.

  16. Gay porn career ahead? Tebow as Top, Kurt Cameron as Bottom?
    Vice is verser.

  17. Next Stop:

    Dancing with the Stars!

  18. i would imagine a calendar is his next stop, a racy calendar. if he keeps his relationship with his god to himself, he is very attractive.

  19. This is not about God, it is about what Tebow did or didn't do for himself. Good radiance.

  20. Porn would be good next step

  21. I'm sure Tebow could still count on that Chick-Fil-A sponsorship lol.

  22. Wow. Am I missing something? To my knowledge he's never come out and publicly said anything against the gay community, has he? Pardon me if I'm wrong but even so, it shouldn't justify such vitriolic comments. Being accepted back into the folds of society doesn't mean that you're going to get acceptance from everyone but it does mean adhering to society's rules of courtesy and respectability.
    Maybe, it's time to start treating people the way we'd all want to be treated and drop the bitchy queen act.

  23. This thread is so phuking petty. You'd think the guy was some evil psychopathic serial killer of gay men or something. He's always struck me as pretty innocuous, a guy who lucked out. But he plays into the far left 'progressive' narrative pretty nicely. Heterosexual [as far as we know] Christian southern white guy = scum, an oppressor, ancestors probably owned slaves or something. 'Progressive' talking point: All white guys are oppressors and racist, sexist, homophobic scum. The ones who dare to actually display masculine tendencies [yes, I've seen and heard Tebow speak!] are the worst of all. The more metrosexual and fem ones can hang around as long as they know their place. Play this up as much as possible.

    I laugh when hearing some leftwing so-called 'progressives' whining about hate. There sure is a lot of hate, on all sides.

  24. He reminds me of my late father who would paint bible verses under his eyes before he'd quarter my backside. Of course you liberals would think that was cruel. I thought it was awesome.

    Posted by: ratbastard | Apr 29, 2013 10:52:57 AM

  25. It was all part of God's plan.
