Good for Tim. He’ll get a shot at the bigs regardless cause he’ll put asses in the seats, but he’s clearly improving

Is that his batting average or career completion accuracy for his NFL career?


If BA, he must have been way down in the .200s as his average is about .260 now. Heating it up and ready for AAA next season.

I loved the scene where they walked out of the cornfield to get the signed baseball from the giant dog

At least the team went from dead last to almost pulling out a win in the championship game if Kelly just ran a little faster.

Theres a special hot place for anyone that roots against Tebow.
He gave the Broncos everything he had. He didnt kneel against the flag. He gave us payback against all those jerk stealers fans at mile high "that day".
He Never bad mouthed the Broncos after we got Manning.
Total Class act. Cant throw an accurate pass but... Total class and i cannot understand why anyone would badmouth him.

Who said he wasnít a class act? He just really sucked at being a QB.

BTW, no one is kneeling against the flag. Thereís a special hot place for those suggesting otherwise.

Tebow is improving. Heís only been playing since the end of 2016, so it hasnít even been two years yet. He started off batting .194 in fall league, the .220ís in A, and .273 in AA.

Yeah, I have a cousin who was drafted by the Red Sox. He didn't do half as good as Tebow has done. Looks like the game might've slown down for TRT.

Nobody is "kneeling against the flag"...and nobody back then was kneeling for the anthem either. Nor would any NFL player with half a brain try to badmouth their team over being sent packing for Peyton Manning, so none of that is relevant.

Tebow has gotten more mileage and public notoriety out of less talent in parlaying a failed NFL career into other opportunities than almost anyone I can think of in recent memory. How many other NFL QB's who got cut from three teams and washed out of the league can you name who have become celebrities, media guys, cult heroes and launched a second career as an athlete in another sport where nobody would have looked at them based on their existing performance? Off the top of my head, I think he's the only one.

That said, he might have had a shot at NFL success had Denver not ruined his chances by ignoring the opportunity to develop his mechanics rather than trying to plug him into a gimmick offense and squeeze out what they could for short-term gain. That was pretty stupid.

I have nothing against the dude, and in fact, I was rooting for him here, but let's be honest...had he not popularized his in-your-face Jesus act and created the spectacle of "Tebowing" in the end zone, he'd have long since vanished from the pages of the sports world or the tabloids. In that sense, his best talent seems to be marketing his own image, which makes a lot of sense financially, even if it does nothing for his chances of any real athletic success. I think he will wind up being a color guy for someone in the not-too-distant future. He's not that good behind the mic either, but he's got a name draw that will probably appeal to some network execs. That's fine...at least he's not beating up women or something.

Hmmmm. When did he ever try to popularize his kneeling? He just did it. It was everyone else that went tebowing. Kurt Warner was Way worse intejecting Christ- not that there was anything wrong with that. Warners thanking the Lord was a little thick for my taste but owell.
Now that Tebow is doing well at baseball some people want him to fail. I just dont understand that.

Which was ironic since Kurt criticized Tebow for being so outspoken about his faith.

Itís also todayís reaction to Tebowís Jesus act. Even calling it an act in the first place. It just wasnít that big of a deal when Reggie White was doing it.
