in Sports/Top Headlines by

For a night, Tim Tebow was back in the pocket. Who knows? Perhaps it will last longer.

Whether that is enough to move Tebow up from fourth on the depth chart remains to be seen, but it was a good start. Tebow, 28, hit five of his first…

Both Josh Freeman, Tim Tebow fight uphill battles to play in the NFL

in Sports/Top Headlines by

Are you ready for the Tim Tebow debate once again?

in Sports/Top Headlines by

The debate is fresh again. The voices are as loud as ever. The sides are distinct. In the middle, there is Tim Tebow, good guy, potential quarterback. And noise. He is perhaps the loudest debate in the history of the league. One side points out that his passes wobble. The other side points out that his intangibles do not. One side would like a no-name quarterback who is on his way to nowhere. One side prefers Tebow, who presumably, is…

in Sports/Top Headlines by

He remains wildly popular. He remains largely inaccurate. He remains a polarizing subject. In other words, not much seems to have changed with former University of Florida quarterback Tim Tebow, who is in the middle of perhaps his last chance with the Philadelphia Eagles.
