Tim Tebow is back in the NFL (for now), which means it’s a perfect opportunity for the Tebow bashers to come back out of the woodwork.
One such basher is NFL kicker Jay Feely, who ripped the former Denver Broncos quarterback during an appearance on a panel on “Jim Rome on Showtime.”
“He’s such a dichotomy for me because I really respect the person, the man, the things that he believes in and the things he does off the field … he was the single worst quarterback I ever saw in my career in the NFL,” Feely said.
Feely then shared a story of what he saw from Tebow during a game against the Broncos.
“I watched him one day … I sat and watched him do routes on air with Ken Whisenhunt as we were playing the Broncos,” Feely recalled. “And routes on air, there’s no (defensive backs) — you know exactly what he’s going to run — there’s no pass rush. He had like 13 incompletions on routes on air. Jim, you and I could go out and do routes on air and we would complete most of our passes.”
Look, everyone knows Tebow isn’t much of a thrower, which is why he hasn’t done anything the past few years. Chip Kelly knows that, which is why he probably brought the former Heisman Trophy winner in to be a specialist. The guy is great in short-yardage situations and would be perfect for making 2-point conversions. There is value in that.
We’ll have to see whether Kelly sees enough to even keep Tebow on the Eagles’ roster for the season.
