They are calling it "The Tim Tebow Experience" – a chance for Central Floridians to work out with the Florida Gators legend/pop culture icon Sunday at D1 Orlando – the new training facility in Lake Mary that Tebow co-owns with Atlanta Braves legend Chipper Jones.
That's right, Timmy will temporarily be in our midst this weekend, but I'm thinking he should consider a more permanent arrangement. I'm thinking he should stay in the City Beautiful and continue his pro football career as the new quarterback of the Orlando Predators.
I'm not kidding.
Tebow, for some baffling reason, cannot get a fair chance as a starting QB in the NFL. Not even with his pathetic hometown team – the Jacksonville Jaguars, who seem to have this mysterious allergic reaction to being relevant and interesting. I've said this before and I'll say it again: It's astounding to me why other young quarterbacks (see Blaine Gabbert, Christian Ponder, Brandon Weeden, Josh Freeman, etc.) are drafted into the NFL and given two and three years to develop, learn from their mistakes and go through the process of becoming a pro quarterback. Not Tebow. Nobody has ever given this kid a chance to mature and progress into a legitimate NFL quarterback.
