Tim Tebow has been Released, Could He Interest the Chicago Bears?

The New York Jets have released “quarterback” Tim Tebow. I’m not going to insult anyone’s intelligence by saying that I feel this is a big time move, yet of course it is the headline on NFL.com. So not that it should matter, but where will this moderately useless punt protector/backup quarterback go? There are several teams in need of a quarterback, and the Bears are one of those who need a solid backup. However, Tim Tebow is the last thing I would ever want to see in a Bears uniform.

I know that Tebow worked with Marc Trestman a few years ago and that his quarterbacking coach with the Jets was our current quarterback coach Matt Cavanaugh. This doesn’t mean being under them will make him succeed for the Bears.  I don’t think Emery is going to sign him, but if he does, I will be mortified. If Jay Cutler were to get injured, the last person I would want to have step in would be Tim Tebow. Tim Tebow attracts way too much attention from the media, and I do not think someone like that is good for any team, especially the Chicago Bears. Most of the attention he gets isn’t really his fault; most of it is the media. For some reason, they are so fascinated by the fact that he was good in college and loves God. They even were intrigued by him back before he made all those comebacks in 2011. But I don’t really care what the media says about Tebow. I just would hate to see that man on the Bears. The only thing it would do is cause problems.
