Tim Tebow may not have a future as a quarterback in the NFL, but he indeed has a future. Tebow who is a magnet for attention, could try his hand at TV, and would definitely have his list of suitors.
ESPN believes the former Jet will be playing football in 2013, but if not, he’s on the network’s radar as a college football analyst, according to the New York Daily News.
There will definitely be competition from Fox Sports who would deem the former Florida Gators and Heisman Trophy winning quarterback as a coup for their all sports network set to debut in August.
It definitely makes sense for Tebow if he wants to stay around the game he loves, while still getting plenty of attention and eyes from his loyal following.

On April 18th, Tim Tebow was named to TIME magazine’s annual list of “The 100 Most Influential People in the World”. Despite the prominent tribute from TIME Magazine, and the numerous other accolades, there’s a huge question that the diehard New York Jets fans and the Tebow critics still want answered. Can Tim Tebow be influential in helping the Jets win football games?
On March 22nd, the Jets shocked the football world, and their rabid fan base, by trading for the polarizing QB who was coming off a season where he rallied a franchise, a city, and his fans to an improbable playoff run. There were dramatic comebacks, magical moments, countless smiles, leaping tall buildings with a single bound and “Tebowing”, which ultimately resulted in a national craze known as “Tebow Mania”.
However, despite his incredible popularity and unfathomable success, the Denver Broncos didn’t waste any time shipping Tebow off to the Jets after they had won the Peyton Manning sweepstakes. Many of the players for the New York Jets were baffled because prior to the trade for Tebow, the Jets gave starting QB Mark Sanchez a contract extension to appease Sanchez after the team had flirted with the idea of signing Peyton Manning. The trade for Tebow seemed to contradict this contract extension.
Jets management quickly assured Sanchez and the fans that Mark would still be the starter. The management also declared that Tebow would be the backup QB and have special plays designed for him. Unfortunately, the trade had ruffled some feathers and a quarterback controversy looms on the horizon like a thunderstorm. (more…)

Throughout Tuesday morning, after Peyton Manning signed a $96 million deal with the Denver Broncos, tons of people have been lighting up FaceBook with heaps of opinion on Manning coming in and Tim Tebow about to be on his way out.
Being that most of my friends on FB are from Wyoming, a lot of them are Broncos fans and say it’s time to win. And of course, with a skilled veteran as their new man under center, they’ve forgotten that’s exactly what Tebow helped them do last season. I have been a Tebow fan since about half way through his senior year of high school becuase I am — above all — a Florida Gator fan. And this treatment, this disregard for a guy who guided the Broncos to the playoffs last year sickens me.
I understand it’s one thing to be happy about Peyton Manning coming into town, but it’s another to forget the past and the man who somewhat was responsible for turning the Broncos around last year. So a lot of people have asked me what I think about Tebow. I’ve also had to put some of these haters in check. Here is a few of my FaceBook conversations and wall posts (excuse the grammar) since the Manning deal went down:
• The latest: I’m wearing a Tebow jersey today. A Florida Tebow jersey. And I just want to say to all the Broncos fans, congrats on getting your guy, but don’t drag Tebow through the mud. He got a pretty pathetic team into the playoffs and then literally had his best game of his NFL career in a victory against the AFC champions. Show some appreciation instead of saying oh now we’re going to the Super Bowl. He’s just one player. And the Donkeys don’t compare to the Colts teams that Peyton had. Let’s not forget, too. Little brother has more rings, and Peyton has lost more under pressure in the Playoffs than he has won. Broncos fans and NFL fans alike make fun of his relationship with God, and now they act like Peyton Manning IS God. Give me a break.
It appears quarterback Tim Tebow‘s time in the Mile High City is over after the Denver Broncos signed perennial Hall Of Fame gunslinger Peyton Manning on Monday morning.
With a new quarterback in place, it’s very unlikely Tebow will be with the Broncos by the time training camp rolls around. In fact, it’s almost a certainty that the former Heisman Trophy winner will be dealt very soon. ESPN football analyst said the latest rumors surrounding Tebow is that he could wind up as a New England Patriot. Those rumors surfaced before the Peyton Manning deal. Now it’s known — league wide — that Tebow is on the trading block. Enter the Miami Dolphins. After the Dolphins lost out on free agent quarterback Matt Flynn, the franchise is screaming it needs a new QB loudly.
With the rumors still swirling out there in cyber space, Couch Side will entertain the idea of Tebow as a Patriot or a Dolphin:
TEBOW AS A PATRIOT
• Under a legend: The best thing for Tebow’s development is for him to sit behind an experienced starter for a few years. And who would be a better mentor than two-time league MVP Tom Brady. Now don’t get me wrong. Tebow would also reap the benefits of being Manning’s backup. It just seems the Broncos and coach John Fox want nothing to do with the former Florida star, however. So there’s a very good chance that Tebow could wind up in New England via a trade. The Patriots have a boatload of picks and I could see them giving the Broncos a fourth rounder in this year’s draft for Tebow. The trade would be a great long-term investment for the Pats and ultimately it could even create a healthy battle for New England’s No. 2 spot between Tebow and former Arkansas standout Ryan Mallet, who the Patriots drafted in the third round last year. We all know Brady has perhaps five or even six years left before he is ready to call it quits. And it would be silly to think he won’t end his career as a Patriot. And if Tebow sticks around for that entire time with Brady and the infamous Patriots coaching staff, he will be a much better player because of it. And once Brady retires, Tebow may finally be that QB everyone expected him to be. I guarantee his mechanics will only improve with Brady’s guidance. And as a Tebow fan, I’ve always wanted to see him sit behind a crafty veteran. Tom Brady is just that. (more…)
