The script had everything that a person could want -- intrigue, drama, and a flawed main character. It was a Broadway show that had the makings of being a huge money-maker but the director decided to go another route. Tim Tebow was supposed to be the next big thing in New York but he didn’t even get the chance to be a flop.
It was reported earlier today that the New York Jets are ready to part ways with Tim Tebow. Despite all the expectations heading into the season and the plethora of ESPN coverage, Tebow’s tenure in the Big Apple was just rotten. Following the Mark Sanchez benching this week, Tim Tebow was bypassed as starting quarterback for 3rd stringer Greg McElroy. It was the last straw for Tebow and ultimately signalled the end for the former Heisman Trophy winner.
Unfortunately for Tebow and ESPN, this failure with the Jets might have signalled more than just the end of Tebow’s days in New York.
