The Soap Opera That is Tim Tebow
Just 16 months ago Tim Tebow was tossing a walk-off touchdown to Demaryius Thomas to beat the Steelers in the NFL playoffs. Since then, Tebow's been traded, ignored, ridiculed and discarded. Now, Tebow fans have petitioned President Barack Obama, on the White House’s “We The People” page, to call the Jacksonville Jaguars GM David Caldwell and tell him to stop ignoring the fans and sign Tim Tebow.
The full petition reads:
Jacksonville Jaguars fans want the team to sign recently released QB Tim Tebow. However, rookie general manager for the Jacksonville Jaguars David Caldwell is blocking this from happening. If the Jaguars sign & START Tebow, home games will be sold out, sales will spike, the team will win and the fans will be happy. Mr. Caldwell is ignoring lots of facts about the misunderstood Tim Tebow while in Denver: Passer rating of 125.6 is highest ever in Broncos postseason history. Most yards per completion (31.6) in NFL playoff history.100.5 QB rating is best ever for a Broncos QB in his first start. Third most passing yards in a game by a Bronco rookie QB. (308, in his 2nd start), First 15+ point comeback in the final 3 minutes of an NFL game since the merger, 7 game winning drives in just 16 games!
I know what you're thinking: How does this not force Obama into action? As compelling as the highest-passer-rating-in-first-start argument is, The White House found the petition superfluous, striking it from their “We The People” page because it violates the site's terms of service policy. Let’s be honest this is a privet matter not a political one, there is nothing the man can do. I suggest Tebow take a page out of the draft-dodgers handbook: If Washington won't help you, go forth to Canada.
