In response to stillgridlocked's comment:
Babe, Do you believe there is an NFL wide conspiracy against Tebow?
Is that why no one has picked him up yet?
Is that why the Montreal Allouetes GM said he could try out for the backup QB position there?
Did BB cut him knowing that he 'outperformed' Mallet?
Did the same coach that gave him a shot after he had sat for 6 weeks with NO OTHER TEAM picking him up, cut him because he is part of the NFL anti-Tebow conspiracy?
Here's a good read about Tebow in the Christian Science Monitor which is apparently in on the Tebow conspiracy:
When Tebow was cut by the Jets earlier this year, at least three indoor football teams expressed an interest in signing him. They probably still would. If Tebow signed for the Orlando Predators in his native Florida, he would create more racket than a shuttle launch. He would be indoor football's David Beckham.
Meanwhile, the team in Canada that holds Tebow's rights has taken a quarterback with similarly gruesome throwing mechanics and turned him into perhaps the most successful player in league history.
"In either league, Tebow would still be a project. His greatest weaknesses – passing accuracy and quick decisionmaking – would be exposed cruelly. As much as the NFL has become a passer's league, the CFL and Arena league do it more. If you cannot pass, you cannot win, and if Tebow cannot begin to find the broadside of barns with his passes, he'll soon find himself without a job again – and nowhere else to turn."
Conspiracies require themselves to be hidden. Nothing much is hidden when it comes to prejudice against Tebow.
Why is he not picked up yet? I don't know, could it be that he just got dumped when teams were about to break camp at a position which requires a good grasp of a system? Could he have a deal with BB to come back after week one so the contract isn't guaranteed? Could many teams be shy of the media frenzy he brings through no fault of his own? Could some of these garbage teams be afraid of having their already well scrutinized dysfunction being scrutinized x10 more with Tebow on the roster?
I don't know, and neither do you.
I suspect the Alouettes have a starting QB and wouldn't throw him under the bus in public like that loser Horseface did.
What is BB going to do, cut another of his high round draft picks in Mallet amidst one of his worst seasons of cutting his draft failures? Mallet has done absolutely nothing to impress anybody.
NO OTHER TEAM PICKED HIM UP? You are privy to what offers or feelers Tebow may have had before he signed with the Pats?
Care to have your azz handed to you some more?
Here's a hint Babe. It has nothing to do with bias. NFL GMs only care about performance, and Tebow's performance is bad. His completion percentage is dismal. There are plenty of people who feel one way or the other about Tebow because of his religiousity. I could care less about that, and I'm sure there's no GM in the NFL who would turn Tebow down if he believed Tebow could perform at an NFL level. But Tebow is't an NFL (or CFL) QB. He's simply not a good enough passer. As Jim Popp (the Montreal GM) said, the only way you could employ him is if you developed a special system just for him, and few, if any, teams are going to do that. If Tebow wants to be a professional QB, whether in the states or Canada, he should hire a professional coach (he's got the money) and spend a full year perfecting and practicing his throwing. Then he should seek to get camp invites next year in both the states and Canada. But I'm afraid unless and until he can improve his throwing mechanics, no team is going to waste time and resources putting him through QB school.
