Things are dark in Tim Tebow land

For those who don’t know, things are dark in Tim Tebow land.

The team that he had the best chance of landing on says they don’t want him so things are probably as dark as they’ve ever been.

Here’s the best summary article I’ve found: Tebow: ‘I don’t know what my future holds.

And while some say he could end up in the Canadian Football League, even that is being shot down in this article.

I’m still an optimist that he’ll be starting somewhere, but I have absolutely no data I could point to that would prove my point. We’ll just have to see.

P.P.S. Thanks to all who continue to make my novels a success. I seriously couldn’t have done it with everyone’s support. I’m excited to say that Little Man, and the Dixon County War  has gone as high as No. 16 on the Amazon UK Paid List (see here and here). My second novel, Sold Outhas also done well, going as high as No. 81 on the Amazon Paid List for the category of War (see here and here). Learn more about both books here.

Tim Tebow shows further improvement in first outing with Jets

It’s hard to tell much from a preseason football game, but I thought Tim Tebow looked sharp.

He didn’t get much playing time in the first outing for the New York Jets, but he showed in brilliant fashion the difference between himself and Mark Sanchez.

When the offensive line fails with Sanchez in, you get an ugly sack. (Happened twice.)

When the offensive line fails with Tebow in, you get some Houdini-like moves and plenty of positive yards — 14 yards one time, 10 on another.

Tebow’s stats look bland, but a receiver dropped a perfectly thrown ball on one of his attempts. And it didn’t help that he had to play with the second-string offense, and that the Jets coaching staff called plays more conservative than Rush Limbaugh.

All in all, I was most pleased to see his passing had improved. This is his third offense he’s had to learn in three years, and he hasn’t had a fair shot (that most starting QBs get) in any of them. Throw in the fact that he’s trying to re-tool his throwing motion and it’s a wonder the guy even has any fans or stats.

Here’s a story that sums up his effort: Tim Tebow dazzles with his legs during debut for NY Jets in preseason opener against Bengals.

(And, no, before you go there, I’m not one of Tim Tebow’s religious fanatical fans.)

P.P.S. Thanks to all who continue to make my novel Little Man, and the Dixon County War a huge success! It’s gone as high as No. 16 on the Amazon UK Paid List (see here and here), landing smack dab between a Louis L’Amour and Zane Grey book. And don’t forget to check out my newest novel (Sold Out). It’s already gone as high as No. 81 on the Amazon Paid List for the category of War (see here and here). Learn more about both books here.

Call it now: Will Tim Tebow be the Jets starting QB this year?

The Tim Tebow articles are increasingly pessimistic about his chances of becoming a starting quarterback for the New York Jets.

Most these days state he won’t be the starter. Many of the most recent ones talk about him doing lots of special teams work. Some discuss the muscle he’s added in the gym — at the coaching staff’s request — and say if they wanted him to be a good passer, then the coaches would have never been saying that.

It’s been pretty dark days for a Tebow fanatic like me. So it was nice to see a ray of hope this week, even if it was from his hometown paper. Here’s the link.

As I’ve said before, I still think he’ll be the starter by the fifth or sixth game.   (And, no, I’m not one of Tim Tebow’s religious fanatical fans.)

Let’s hear it from those who are out there. Before the pre-season games begin and more analysis emerges, put your stake in the ground and call it — with a date and time stamp by your name. Bottom line: Will Tebow be the Jets starting quarterback this year at all, and if so, beginning when?
